Top blogs/ Fastest Growing blogs/ Top posts

  1. I have opened multiple blogs on WordPress.com

    http://1paarvai.wordpress.com/
    http://1kavithai.wordpress.com/
    http://1seythi.wordpress.com/

    I named them in the same style so it sort of gives the expression its from one person. But in all of Top blogs/ Fastest Growing blogs/ Top posts only one blog gets in. I went to the "Blogs Of The Day" link and my other blogs weren't listed at all in the list.

    I think WordPress.com filters out by the userID. I would like to request not to filter out by userID so multiple blog owners can also listed their respective blogs if they hit the top. Otherwise this will make users to create multiple userIDs!

  2. Could it be that your other blogs don't get the traffic as the first one does?

    WP.com does not filter on userID. I've had my different blogs hit the lists.

  3. Under "Blogs of the day" the number of listing is higher than the top/ fastest growing blogs. So I assumed that the Blogs of the day lists top 100 blogs in the order. But my other blogs were never present in there. So I put up this.

    If you say you already had your other blogs [same owner] hit the list at the same time [listing of 2 or more of your blogs], then I guess my blogs didn't have enough traffic.

    I'm sorry for all the troubls.

  4. I'm curious though as to the traffic levels compared between the blogs though. It may be a bug. From mucking around with the webcomic though, I've gotten a good idea as to what it takes to show up there.

  5. I still had no avail of listing my posts/ blogs in the top lists.

    [same owner blogs multiple posts/blogs appear in the top lists at the same time]

    I suggest that you send in a feedback with a link back to this thread. And just in case you have lost the link for the Blogs Of the Day "About" page here it is http://botd.wordpress.com/about/

  7. skcsknathan001, I think you may have missed my second post in there. :) (ie What's your traffic?)

  8. I post one (1) post per day on 1kavithai.wordpress.com/
    Few days ago one post had the count to, if I remember correctly, 15.

    this blog is not listed any of fast growing/ top blogs/ top posts. Addition to that, its not listed in Blogs of the day "http://botd.wordpress.com/?lang=ta"

    The blog's name is "ஒரு கவிதை"
    Currently the blogs of the day has top 11, and my other blogs were not listed.

    Only my 1paarvai.worpdress.com/ "ஒரு பார்வை" appear.

    Note: The list I'm talking about is the language "Tamil" "தமிழ்" listings.

  9. One more time.

    What's your traffic? How many page views are you doing on each of your blogs?

  10. @drmike
    The numbers go like this
    1753 - 1paarvai.wordpress.com/
    460 - 1kavithai.wordpress.com/
    27 - 1seythi.wordpress.com/
    5 - 1letter.wordpress.com/
    That's why i gave the link back to the rules about the way botd works http://botd.wordpress.com/about/

  11. 460 page views would not put you on the top list. On occasion, a have a blog that appears but nothing under 1,100 gets me in there.

  12. Yes, I know its kinda very low. But it doesn't also appear under "Fastest growing blogs".

    Anyhow, does any one owner had their multiple blogs/ posts from multiple blogs listed at the same time?

    Different blog could come up, but 2 or more blogs/ posts of the same owner came up at the same time ever?

  13. drmike 1100 views wow.... I was happy when I reached three digits for the first time.

    Hahaha ;)

  14. @skcsknatha
    I think that it's possible that we are having a language problem when communicating.
    The blogs which are listed in the categories you are speaking of have the highest numbers of visitors viewing them. The qualifications for being listed are strictly based on numbers and not on who owns how many blogs.
    Just for example there are blogs that get 1100 viewers and up every day. These blogs are on the fastest growing blogs list.

  15. And it doesn't relate to how many posts you make on the blogs either. That helps people notice you and has an indirect influence on how many hits you get, but it's number of hits that count (for top blogs), and the rate of increase of hits (for fastest growing).

    1700? I envy you.

  16. my post in 1paarvai got 7 hits today and its third in the TOP POSTS.

    my post in 1kavithai got 31 hits yesterday and it wasn't listed.

  17. I used to have more than 1500/2000 hits back in the days (I just started a couple of months back though) and my blog used to appear in the top 10 list but I kind of got lazy and nowadays I update it twice a week or so.
    Though the quality of my posts has been consistent, I was unable to continue blogging everyday.
    So, my advice for folks is: be consistent and maintain quality.

  18. hello?

    just today i have 2300 hits and im not even in the top 100 blogs.

    what's going on.

    one of my posts has 900 hits and its not in the top 100 posts.

    am i being excluded cuz im ugly?

    Maybe that's it.

    The purpose of BOTD

    Blogs Of The Day highlights the most popular content on WordPress.com. The lists produced by BOTD are displayed on this site and on every WordPress.com user's dashboard, as well as on the front page. You can browse these lists to find interesting things to read. You might even make a friend.
    How BOTD works

    We count up the visitors to all public blogs and posts in a rolling 24-hour period. No personally identifiable information is stored. Several times throughout the day, we summarize all of this data in different ways to produce lists of blogs and posts that might be interesting.

    BOTD does not use numbers shown on the Blog Stats page of your Dashboard. Some page views are excluded for various reasons. We use proprietary formulae to calculate the popularity of a site.
    What BOTD contains

    We maintain editorial control of this space on the behalf of the community. Mature or objectionable content can cause a blog to be removed from these lists. This does not depend upon the Terms Of Service; it’s at our discretion.

    These lists are generated by machines. We do try to keep the lists safe for browsing from work or school but we can not make any promises about the content shown or linked here. If you see something you think should not be here, please send feedback using the form in your dashboard and we will give it prompt consideration.
    How BOTD chooses languages

    The languages in the sidebar are chosen according to the number of page views on blogs of each language. Blogs without a chosen language will not appear in any particular language list, so be sure your blog’s language option is set.

  21. I'm sorry people... but the list I'm talking about is NOT the English list.

    I'm talking about the language "Tamil" [ta] list.

    Anyhow, I'll wait until I get more than 1,100 hits and lets see after that.

    Thanks a lot guys

    [Please do not use sigs in the forum. They distract people from the information in the thread. Thanks - Podz]

  22. I presumed the rules and the way things were done would be the same for every language. I'm puzzled as to why you think they should differ in any way language by language and would like to encourage you to send in a feedback.

  23. timethief,

    I already sent a feedback and no answer.

    anyhow, I just noticed another site with 565 hits got its post at the top posts.

  24. How can I know if my blog is excluded from the wordpress lists for «Mature or objectionable content»? I can see blogs in the «greek» list with 30 hits (!) and not mine...

  25. IMO you could send in a feedback directly to sysadmin or and email to support@wordpress.com and get the answer to your question. IMO it's highly unlikely that you will get an anwswer to it here.

  26. eteraz, you're showing up in my Top Posts table on the Dashboard page, and I'm quite sure I've seen you on the Top Blog or Fastest Growing list. Maybe there's a lag time?

  27. @raincoaster
    eteraz made this post on the 10th when the stats were "funky" and being worked on.

  28. Some clarifications:

    BOTD and "Stats" are entirely different beasts. They do not share code or data. The only correlation is that they are both triggered, in part, by page views.

    The Top Posts and Fastest Growing lists are based on complex mathematical curves with many factors, of which your traffic is only one.

    As a blogger there's no reason to worry about your BOTD ranking. It's there to help people find stuff to read. It's not there to tell you how cool you are. :-)

  29. andy,

    my question was

    Does any one owner had their multiple blogs/ posts from multiple blogs listed at the same time?

    Different blog could come up, but 2 or more blogs/ posts of the same owner came up at the same time ever?

    1) let's say one owner has 2 blogs, Could one post from blog_1 and another post from blog_2 show up in the top lists AT THE SAME TIME?

    2) let's say one owner has 2 blogs, Could blog_1 and blog_2 show up in the top lists AT THE SAME TIME?

    I have a feeling single owner cannot have his/her multiple blogs listed in the top list AT THE SAME TIME. Its always ONE blog.

  30. *chuckle* Tx andy
