A Few Updates from Carson
So, we had a recent visit in Live Chat from Carson, who cleared up a few things that may have been puzzling us!
You may have noticed that the WA ranking has not been updated and doesn't show the top 200 members. The answer is - "the table that we store ranks in got far too large; we're updating as we speak. Should be back working in 30 mins or so"
Next, we all had a spike in our stats yesterday, in content clicks. Here's the response - "this just means that a bunch of content got indexed. We ran some updates to our sitemaps for blogs - I'm assuming that Google picked up a bunch more content here at WA"
And a few things to look forward to -
"I'm actually working on a brand new search for WA which we'll roll out next week. Hopefully, that will help you find things a bit easier! Working on an update to live chat too (should come next week as well)"
"One of the projects we're working on right now is optimizing blog content so that it'll attract more folks to join the WA community through your content. We think we can multiply referrals through indexed content exponentially"
Obviously, I don't know anything more, other than these direct quotes from Carson. Hope that clears up a few things for you.
