What is tally all about?

  1. Hello!
    What is the tally all about? Suppose, my tally is 500. What does it mean?
    What can and shall I do with the tally?

    The blog I need help with is randomizer144.wordpress.com.

  2. Where do your see this "tally" appearing?

  3. Hello! )
    For example, I got a System message:
    "Congratulations on getting 500 total likes on WISIWIS (What I See Is What I Shoot).

    Your current tally is 606."
    And tally is mentioned in all messages of this kind.
    My blog is less than three weeks old.
    Tally = 606 - is it a good progress or a stagnation? )))
    And what it is for?

  4. Aha! that's "the nanny". . You can disable/enable it here > Dashboard > Users > Personal Settings http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/12/12/get-instant-feedback-when-you-publish/

    To the right from red heart illustration...

  8. You join social networks of your own choosing. You capture images of the social networking icons there. Then you upload them into your blog and link them to your profile on each site and display them in a text widget.

  9. Thanks! I will try!
    My next question...
    How can I assess my progress in getting followers and likes and visits a day... Are there any benchmarks, performance indexes? How to see where I am?

  10. There are no such benchmarks. There are zillions of blogs in zillions of niches and Apples to Oranges comparisons are utterly useless. New Bloggers frequently become fixated on stats watching. Don't waste you time on that -- devote it to commenting.

    To increase traffic note that reciprocity is alive and well in the blogosphere. Social networking is strictly give to get. It takes months of posting frequently to attract viewers who will actually submit comments. The best way to get comments on your own posts is to leave meaningful comments on blogs with similar content to what's in your own blog. Set a goal of commenting on "X" number of blogs weekly and carry through.
