Relation Between Indiblogger,Top Post,Votes.Comments,Traffic and Moneytizing

First I am not Talking about Other blogging Communities.I am only Talking about Indiblogger and the Questions which arises after some one gets high votes and is on home page but is that what you really want ? , Does the famous tag on Indiblogger guaranties you regular traffic? Here is What I think
1.My Other Blog Which I am not giving attention now a days still get traffic due to SEO and labels.And I hav enot shared anything on that blog/Indiblogger from past 8 Months.
2.Contest and Indispire Posts do get high votes for me as well around 40-50.My last three posts(NOW 4 including this one) are tops posts but they did not get even 100 Votes.They are bound to get votes which is not equal to traffic mind you.
Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
3.Getting onto homepage is completely different thing as it depends on timing of the posts I have seen a post with 19 Votes in top 10 as well.So Again Not a big Question.
4.Comments like "nice post" , "well done" do irritate but if the content is good and reader is serious then he/she is bound to come back.
5.I don't take negative comments to heart , after all traffic is what all matters ;), and what would I end up doing If I react to them ,Nothing Useful right ?
6/if the Question is how long can this game is played (of Votes),My answer is till eternity,The number of votes does not matter and should not matter , the posts which promotes the brand even by flaunting rules is bound to win , no matter what and its not a case of sour grapes.The posts which makes a brand Trending is what every brand whats.
7.Twitter/FB Page came work wonders only if you are really active.You know What I mean,
8.Content is the King but the King cant stay alone without the state and an Army and servants of-course.Be it widgets,platforms,traffic organic,SEO,activeness and uniqueness.
9.I published my story no one bought the book Desire v/s Destiny , But I don't care , I now am a freelancer writer even after I was bashed up by a famous IB blogger for being a porn writer even when I was writing erotica,he still is famous and later on he said "he did not knew the difference".It did not stop me , Its only the passion for writing which makes  you write more Aint it?
10.I have never won any contest , Not even have got the valid entry prizes on IB but that does not stops me from writing and sharing.Votes does not matter , trust me.
11.I personally never cared about votes , I always cared about traffic be it from IB or anything else and IB is not even been in top 10  traffic generators.
12.There are strong social media players which generates traffic , IB votes can make you happy once in a while but even your heart knows they dont really matter if you are not getting that much visitors from IB.The number of votes is never equal to the traffic IB generates.
13.Blind voting is every where If this will make you lose heart then its your problem only and only you can sort that out.Cheers to Blogging and Cheers to IB.

  1. It depends why are you blogging? Why do you write? Is writing your passion or you just want publicity and money. I believe if its your passion you will enjoy writing no matter who reads it or not. I have been writing since as long as I remember. It makes me happy. It results in catharsis. Blogging is something as an extension of writing for me. So, votes matter but not that much for me. Regarding SEO I don't know the tricks. So, I intend to learn.

  3. Agreed with Datta Ghosh on it. Actually what I can say is that the content matters a lot. Did you ever realized how people comments on some questions which I ask in between of a long blog post? It is a proof that people normally read the content and hence respond to the things.

    But then you should understand what your readers want to read from you. Provide them the same and see you will start getting loyal visitors.

    As far as books are concerned, selling of books is entirely different than anything else. It depends on many factors...

  5. I agree with you on all points and more so on the last one, blind voting is everywhere, when you are acquainted to a person's writing and a regular reader you go ahead and vote and then i mark it as favorite and read it while commuting or when at home. I do agree that some comments which are just for the sake of are irritating but world has to be accepted with all variety. Well written post.

  6. Regarding IB votes : doesn't matter much except that it is a moment of happiness to see yourself on the HOME page.Moreover , there are many bloggers who visits the Home page only and eventually visit the featured posts....that's an added advantage.

    Regarding Blog : my two cents , it's your blog, your content, your choice. No one can dictate you what to write or not.And it's better ignore a person who doesn't understand/know the difference between an erotica and a porn.

    Regarding SEO, monetization : I don't have much idea. But on completing exactly one year in this blogosphere, my experience is.. nurture your blog, it's your baby...take proper care and the rest will follow automatically.

    And finally....nice to know about your book :-) great achievement.

    N.B. Forgive my nitpicking attitude :-( ...there are a few typos... No. 7,8,11..repetition of words..please edit :-) I sincerely hope you won't mind mentioning this... :-)

  7. I've really a problem with this comment thing. I don't have much vocabularies in this context. And ended with comments like nice post, well written etc etc. Most of the times, my comment would result in comprehensive length. Initially, I used to write a separate post for comment then post its link in comment section. Later, I realized that no one care to click on the link and instead put me in spam section. I seriously need help in writing comments- a good post would be appreciated.

  9. IB votes,comments and pageviews--all three never synchronize.Just do your bit and avoid blind voting i would say.

  11. Only thing that mattes is content and how well readers connect with your thoughts. Sadly, many look blog as numbers, rather than a platform to share their feelings.

  12. oley baba 11 years of blogging !!!!!!! guruji plz share some more gyan .. I agrre with that timing point.. for example if I posted something on sunday or nay other such public holiday then most probably my work will go unnoticed ( it happened wid me many times and I never learnt anything from my experience) .. I dnt know about other traffic generators so IB is one of the important source of visitors for me.. yes labels helps a lot.. there is a story of imine titled "HELLO" .. it has got 20k views till date and it is the only post that brings constant traffic to my blog.. there are a couple of other posts where keywords/labels played a good role and m getting visitors due to those KWs.
