WA Rank vs Building Your Webiste

Last Update: August 28, 2017

I know you all know about the new WA ranking structure and it's changes, it was the talk of the town for a good bit.

Some people were mad about the change, while others just continued to carry on.

I'll be honest, I wasn't so big on the WA rank, I just simply helped out those who truly needed it, not for rank, but simply to help.

I help out because I know when I needed the help when I first started here, people were fast to lend a hand, so I just do what was given to me and lend a hand right back!

Before the rank change, I was sitting at rank 182, I was just about to get kicked off the top 200, but that didn't bother me, I was more focused on my website.

Surprisingly, I went from rank 182 to the Top 50, but again, I wasn't trying to get there, I was really just helping out those who needed it, while at the same time blogging here to give others some motivation.

For some, becoming an Ambassador is a goal, but just remember what brought you to this platform to begin with.

Building an online business is what brought you here, and you can't lose focus on that!

While others were going back and fourth about how their rank went from 100 to 1000, I was working on my site like how I was taught to.

And let me tell you, it really made a difference!

My site is very trusted by the search engines now, and that was all thanks to the training here and the work I put in.

Point being made is, would you rather be at the top 200 with a site that isn't getting worked on or making progress... or would you rather put in work to your site and start making that money?

Yes it is good to help people here on the platform, but just remember, there are many others here to help out as well.

Work on your site, and when you get things done, come back to the community and lend a hand, that's what I do and it balances out well.

You don't realize it, but when your caught up blogging here, you waste a lot of time that could go to blogging on your site.

I'm not saying what to do with your time, but simply remember why you came to this platform to begin with.

When the money starts rolling in, you'll thank me later :)

Have a great one everybody and I wish you all great success!

Its a big issue, but the decision is on individual. I know WA ranking affects some, one has to be realistic about this. Some have programmed reduced emails coming in to them, but I would rather have all, but not necessarily respond to all. I have a choice to pick which are useful to me, and which I respond to. Even a lady left WA because she was not happy with the ranking. The ranking matters to some, so again the decision is on individual. Thank you.

Yes of course it's based on the individual, but this post was to intended to simply remind people of what they are really here for, which is creating an online business. I'm not trying to offend anyone, but if you really want to know if this program works, you have to actually put in the work to your website and not WA rank. Thanks for the comment though, I really appreciate you stopping by.

We are on the same thinking, WA ranking is unrealistic.

I must say, I am growing tired of people on this site who are in low numbers telling me that I am not helping enough or not thinking enough to pay it forward. The fact is I have not changed my level of activity at all and since this new ranking system came in, I think I have done more activity. But my rank hasn't changed one way or another in 8 days now. I do mind my website and am creating a good network, for instance my following has doubled in 8 days and still my rank is not moving up or down. So something is not right. My suggestion have it the ranking or don't have the ranking. But at least have it work so we can all understand it.

First off, I understand your frustration to a point, but really, your rank will not play a big factor with your rank moving up or down. If you didn't see the ranking criteria Carson put out, you could find it right below and maybe that will help out your rank a little. Hope all goes well with you.

With all due respect, I have read and am following what you have included there. I don't think, in all due respect, you understand my point.

I do, you want rank and the system seems to be holding you back from that. Just keep doing what you're doing with helping out, and things should pan out in your favor. I wish you nothing but great success my friend and hope you get to the rank you deserve.

Very good point, Jaime! However, it bothers me a little that my Member Rank doesn't change at all... not because I am eager to lower the number, but because I wonder how it supposed to work and whether this site is working properly. I am a new person here. I am being active, I do offer some help to others, but this number 41133 stays the same since I first noticed its existence (my day 1 or 2?). "Helper Rank" and "Activity Rank" seem to move a little, but "Member Rank" stays the same and "Creator Rank" is nothing. I just wonder what these two (Member & Creator) are about. I didn't care enough to bring up this question, but since you started the topic, I wonder if there a post somewhere explaining WA ranking.

Okay, thank you! I think, I've actually seen it before... There is so much reading, that some things I simply forget until I see them again. This blog doesn't explain why my number is frozen in time. :) Is "Member Ranking" an average of other 3 rank types? Well, two really, because this article explains that Activity does not contribute to "rank". Anyway, I agree with you and don't pay too much attention to it, but my curiosity takes my eyes back to this static icon more often than I wish it would since it sits among other icons, which are actually useful.

Hello Everyone, you know I don't know how to do a blog, I'm still trying to learn how to do my website. My dad was in the hospital so I slacked a little. You know I worked as a single mom of three, and you think I would know all this...lol...I worked sitting at a computer everyday, but by the time I got home that was the last thing I wanted to do...I'm so behind on time its not funny....I need help.

I have gone over it again and again, at my age, I forget before I'm done reading it. I have to do hands on.

So the video tutorials didn't help out?

That's why I like this site so much! Everyone is willing to lend a hand and help. But we can help the best when we go through the whole training and successfully build our websites. People want to look up to other people that have already mastered what they are trying to master. Keep on helping!
