Wealthy Affiliate Ranking Tip...

Last Update: August 10, 2014

Hey Guys,

Just a quick blog to let you know about a recent discovery that I made.

Since joining WA back in March, I've been working hard to get to the Ambassador rank. I've been helping and answering as many questions as I can. I've been providing feedback and encouragement, and I've done my best to try and interact with the community as a whole.

Well, it's been paying off, and my rankings have been climbing with each day. During the process, I noticed something that I thought would interest everybody.

We all know that the little blue box in the top-right corner that says "Rank" is our current ranking right? Right.

Well, here's something that you may not know...

If you go to your own profile page, your rankings will likely be completely different. Why? Because, it appears that profile pages are the first to show the most recent ranking updates. These updates will eventually show up in the blue rank box, but it's usually many hours later. My rankings are typically 40 points higher on my profile page...

Want to know what your REAL rank is or which direction your heading?? Head over to your profile page.

To Success!

I inadvertantly noticed this as well. I think it's a timing thing. I does eventually catch up "in the blue box". It seems that it's an important goal of yours but don't forget your website is just as (if not more) important.

Hi Sui,
Yes, I agree that my website takes first priority. I just think having a higher rank can help give you more exposure and authority.

Thanks Josh,
I think that Ambassador ranking don't mean anything important. The only important topic here at WA are your learning progress and your skills, and the ongoing of your website ( content, traffic and google ranking). The WA Ambassador ranking is a nice toy, but nothing more. and my advice would be: Don't pay any attention!

Thanks giludi. I know it technically doesn't have much significance. It's just a goal of mine because it can help me gain exposure and authority not only in the WA community, but also in my niche.

Thanks Josh, That is good information to have. I have been trying hard myself to rank better. Sometimes it seem like no matter what I do my rank score doesn't move in a positive direction.
To Your Success!
