New to IndiBlogger - Could be Silly Questions
Its just couple of weeks, i have joined Indiblogger. I am yet to explore the variety of features that are available. Nice if somebody could answer my questions.
- Was going through some of the forum threads. I did notice memember saying post your article on IndiVine so that you get more readers. Today for the first time i did it. Who will read the posting? Is only members of this Indiblogger?
- I see some number next to the heart symbol. Why dont i have it?
- There is some number next to Star symbol too. For me it say's NA.
Finally the most important question : Do people see any improvement in readers or visitors by posting article on IndiVine.?

- I see some number next to the heart symbol. Why dont i have it? Its the number of promtions you get on your post by members. Every promotions earns you 1+your indirank/100 promtions
- There is some number next to Star symbol too. For me it say's NA. Its your indirank. Since, you are new, its not updated. Wait for next update.
- Finally the most important question : Do people see any improvement in readers or visitors by posting article on IndiVine.?yes
Animeshji. You said only members can read the posts on indivine. But any non-member who likes to read posts on indiblogger's indivine can do. Yes, the chances are very less that others drop in here to read posts!
Animesh (aka Captain Awesome) is an IndiGuru. You can always reply on him for any questions you have ...
Hi WealthuCreate. Welcome to IndiBlogger community.
I just checked your blog. You have an awesome blog. Congratulations.
- The number next to Star symbol indicates your blog rank. Since you are new to indiblogger you will have to wait till the next update of the indi-ranks. NA indicates no rank but I am not sure of the exact abbrevation of NA.
- Heart is nothing but the love from fellow bloggers on indiblogger! I mean it's the number of votes you have got for a particular post on indivine. Only inidblogger members can vote or promote your posts on indivine. You might have not got any votes as of now. That is the reason for no numbers next to heart.
- Non-indiblogger members can read your posts submitted to indivine but only members can vote for it (you know show some love to your posts!).
Your last question is the difficult one to answer. It's your luck plus your bond with other members on indiblogger that dertermines visitors to your blog! I mean to say as you expect people to read your posts, others too want their posts to be read and commented by you. It's most of the times action and reaction law that works well!
What do my other blogger buddies have to say about this?
Thank You Animesh, Narayan, Medha for your response.
Tell you what, yesterday night i posted one article on IndiVine, today morning i see 70 new articles after i posted. It was surprizing.
Then i realised when there are so many new post, who will read mine... but was suprized to see one like :)
I have started following other blog recently.
Catching it Captain Awesome... Am not a very social guy. It is very recent that i have come up with FB page for my blog. Trust me, i did take help of some of my cousins who are college going kids :).
Well when you say Network - Do you mean to say just click on like button? if i do so, will i get notification every time there is post from the person whom i liked the post. In other words- if i like somebody's article/article, is there a way that i get notification everytime there is an update from the blogger?
What I meant add people to your network on Indiblogger. Then there is an option on dashboard of reading posts from your network. Read their posts, comment there, leave your link, promote their posts if it deserves to be. It will help you a lot
