Blogger Traffic Program 2.0
Updated: Sep 18, 2019
The elves (read:developers) have been busy making some very exciting changes to the Blogger Traffic Program! This has been in the works for quite some time and I am beyond thrilled to finally be able to share it with you!
The general requirements for the program are staying the same- you'll still need 3 "Q2" posts in order to qualify for a feature; you'll still only eligible to be featured once every 30 days; you'll still find all the necessary info on your dashboard. But you already know all those things, so let's get into what ISN'T staying the same!
There are 3 major changes/additions:
You can now rollover posts! Moving forward, when you qualify for a feature, it will take the 3 oldest posts that are Q2. Posted a 4th (or a 12th) post in that time? No worries! Those will remain on your dashboard and will apply towards the next one! Note: posts are only eligible for 365 days, at which point they "expire" and will disappear from your dashboard
Q1 posts will not disappear when you qualify. As mentioned above, when you qualify, we will only process the 3 oldest Q2s. That means that your Q1s will remain on your dashboard and you'll have more of an opportunity to update that post to make it a Q2. Note: posts are only eligible for 365 days, at which point they "expire" and will disappear from your dashboard
Previously featured links- Under the "Blog Links" section, you'll now see 2 tabs. The first tab is the exact same as what was and this is where you put the 3 links you want to be considered for a feature. The new tab is for previously featured links!! From now on, you'll be able to see a running list of what links we have already featured, and when, so that you can better track which links to add.
I cannot stress how important it is that you keep an eye on your dashboard and if you find anything isn't right, let me know ASAP! As with any new feature, it goes through rigorous testing before we roll it out, but there are bound to be some hiccups along the way.
