Recently I’ve published a couple of works on here, they haven’t gotten many views, I think my highest was about ten views, and I’m pretty sure half of that was just me previewing the story.
But they keep getting ranked really highly (as an example, in the top one-hundred or so out of five-thousand other stories tagged the same).
I’m definitely not complaining nor bragging, I’m just very confused as to how the ranking system works. Undoubtedly, I appreciate the exposure higher rankings in various tags give me, absolutely, I just don’t know why mine are getting boosted above stories with… thousands of views?
I write very traditionally and don’t have many grammatical errors in my chapters, thanks to the people who review them, and to simply giving them a comb-over before publishing, does the Wattpad algorithm favor those writing attributes over more casual stories? Does it have to do with chapter length? Or how new my account is?
Again, I’m not bragging, or mad about it, I’m just curious (and I’m also interested in knowing if this is happening to other writers?).
