Bloggiesta 2012 Mini-Challenge: Grade Yourself

Bloggiesta is here, and this is my first mini-challenge:

Grade Yourself!

This mini-challenge is hosted by Smash Attack Reads – go there to join this mini-challenge yourself it’s fun! You fill find the link to Hubsport on that post.

So I asked HubSport, and this is my result:

Wow, I have to say I didn’t expect to get 87/100!

It seems my strengths are:

  1. all the social buttons available on my blog to follow me or to share my posts
  2. I post every 2 days on average
  3. 10 authoritative pages are linking to me – ah ah, that’s the advantage of commenting on others sites and leaving there links to my posts! So, it means the time I spend on Google Reader is worth it, also marketingly speaking!
  4. 1,560 of my pages are indexed by search engines. How about that, I thought my SEO was rather weak.

My weaknesses:

  1. I tweet only every 16 hours, which is not too often. Yes, I could definitely do better on that!
  2. My posts are not often retweeted. So apart from the automatic tweet when I post, I could do extra manual tweets, with more catchy titles maybe, to get attention and get retweeted?

  1. NICE grade!!! My posts are often retweeted directly from my blog either, but they are sometimes retweeted from Twitter itself. 🙂 Woohoo on the SEO! That is something I need to continue to build. It’s already brought in great traffic.


    • thanks for answering even before my link on your site. for whatever reason, from home, your blog always thought I was sending spam to your blog. but I’m at the library now and it worked. as for the SEO, really I only try to tag cautiously, 5 tags per post, and be sure my titles is repeated somewhere in bold characters in my post itself, easy with a book title. I’m not even aware of any other thing I’m doing


  2. Because I’m subscribed to your blog I noticed this challenge and decided to do it. Yes, I am doing Bloggiesta anyway but hadn’t checked out all the challenges so it’s nice to see it on your blog.

    I seem to need more sharing on Facebooks but otherwise I wasn’t too bad. I actually do tweet a lot. 🙂


  3. An 87 is a very high score indeed 🙂 I scored a little lower, which means I need to take a good look at my blog soon. Thanks for sharing this (and yay for Smash highlighting the free HubSport grader!)


  4. 87 is a great grade! I got an 84 and I’m pleased with that particularly since I really don’t do anything to try to promote my blog. haha!

    Hope you had fun with Bloggiesta! I know I did .
