Title: Votes going down?
Post by: Mrstremblay on Mar 11, 2011 @ 07:39 PM
I am noticing that my blog and other blogs on the top Military Wife/Life site are going down, why is that?  I had 77votes one day, then 76, then 75 now I'm at 74 again...  I'm so confused.  I'm seeing other Military Blogs go down in votes to...how is that possible?  I don't use my own voting link to check top mommy blogs,I have it saved in a bookmark I go to.. so I know any votes I have are from friends from my blog.  Is there a glitch in the system right now?

Please help!

Well, that doesn't seem right...  I wonder why they go by a 30 day average?  It make sense why my blog keeps going up and down all the time now..so weird.  I was thinking my link on my blog wasn't working.

Thank you for the response.

Thanks Pepper! Been drowing in newborn poo  ;D
This covered in the FAQ's: Why Am I Losing Votes? (http://www.topmommyblogs.com/info/contact_us.html#losingvotes)

Mrstremblay, I use the 30 day average because for the way this particular program works, I found it to be the best setting and the most productive for members. I could track it daily or hourly but then less than a few hundred of the over 3K members would ever show up! Not all blogs get votes everyday and people panic if their rank changes to dramatically or falls off the list entirely.
