Can’t find the answer from Wattpad; is anyone else’s story ranking not changing at all?


#5364

Maybe the rankings you’re seeing are just staying the same? Mine don’t change that much but update occasionally.


#5365

I don’t think that’s so, because I only have 4 tags ranked and I have gotten a lot more votes since then (and filled up the 25 tag limit) but I thought rankings update everyday


#5366

Maybe something is up then. I’m not exactly all that familiar with the system though so I don’t fully know. Maybe you could find a thread where you can ask one of the Wattpad advisers about it or something like that.


#5367

The tag limit is 25?


#5368

Yup. I saw that somewhere too.

@RocketManEarth Oh I haven’t gotten that far yet… and yeah, you’re right about not knowing for sure how good it is until you go back, but I have barely any descriptive details in it bc writing it out by hand is so slowwww that I’m just trying to get the meat of it down. So I know that it sucks in that sense.


#5369

Hey!


#5370

Okay, not going to spoil anything. Just know he appears after the first time Theon’s team goes after their first mission. That’s all I’m going to say on that topic. And yeah, leaving out a lot of detail, some that may be important, would make the quality to go down. But maybe there’s parts in there that isn’t that bad. Who knows?

@NineLight Hold on, I’ll check what the tag limit is. Give me one second.

@oblivionlii10 Hi.


#5371

So yeah, tag limit is 25. And if you go over that amount it just deletes all of the tags from before. Side note: if you click Cancel without saving your tags it undoes the deletes.


#5372

Should you fill out all of the tags?


#5373

If you can hit on the good one, yeah… people might be searching on them & you cannot rank on a tab if it is not on you book


#5374

Ah, I see. I would have put more on mine but I ran out of things that relate to my book.


#5375

Just keep adding as you think of more


#5376

Well whatever you do, just don’t go over the amount. That’s all.


#5377

Ill keep that in mind, thanks.^^


#5379

In this thread we often read a small bit someone posts or talk over a particular problem, but if you want to find read for reads you will need to post in the Srory Services.


#5381

Somebody shared some female empowerment hashtags the other day. Who was it?


#5382

Mine haven’t moved on my WIP for about a week even though the rate at which it’s getting readers and votes has increased over that time. Not by a large amount but it’s above average for that story.

I’m glad someone else has noticed because I thought it was just me.

Edited to add: Notifications are also off. I uploaded a new chapter yesterday which got 4 votes and 8 comments. It notified me of the comments but only one of the votes shows in my notifications feed.


#5383
