What Is The Point Of Followers? Why Do I Keep Getting Them?
Basically following somebody is a sign that you want to see their stuff and get notifications when they blog new posts or training etc.
It does get used as a kind of "follow me and i'll follow you system" but there is not really much benefit to this. There WAS a period where number of followers helped boost your rank, but it got exploited by various black hat WA rank lovers and the algorithm was changed.
Follow somebody if you think they are interesting.
Wait. Rank? What?
Basically your "rank" is a metric of how active you are at WA and how enganging you are. Being engaged, creating quality content, joining in with discussions,
and following people in the hope that they follow you back, will all contribute to your rank improving. The video above will explain some of the benefits of a high rank.
***Please. Please. Please. Do not create blog posts or training just for the sake of improving your rank***
Can I Refer My Friend To WA Using The Same Computer?
Sorry, some people used to create fake referrals so now it is not possible to do this. If you do, the system will automatically ban you from referring and you won't get credit. If it happens by mistake, send a message to Kyle or Carson.
Why Won't You Answer My Questions?
Usually this happens when somebody tries to ask a question in chat. Maybe chat is busy and the question gets missed, maybe nobody there knows the answer at the time, maybe there IS nobody there at the time (not very likely.)
The best thing to do is create a blog post, a discussion, or ask in chat when you see some of the high ranked people are there. Do not worry, nobody is ignoring you!
