How do Featured Posts, Top Posts and Special Featured Posts work on IndiBlogger?


Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Hello Everyone,

There is a lot of interest around the new featured posts series we launched recently and we have narrowed in on a process! So here it is:

What is a Featured Post on IndiBlogger?

Any post that has been chosen by an automated system or by a human to be posted on the IndiBlogger home page is generally known as a featured post.

There are 3 main features at the moment:

1) Popular Posts of the Day:

These posts are chosen via an automated system that takes into account the votes on a particular blog post within 24 hours of its submission, among a couple of other small tweaks that we keep changing.

This takes into account the time that the posts are submitted into IndiBlogger and not the actual publishing time.

2) Today’s Featured Posts:

This section is chosen by a random person everyday. They look for the latest and most interesting articles submitted into IndiBlogger from Indian Bloggers around the globe. The posts will be displayed on the home page for a minimum of two hours to a maximum of 24 hours.

The best way to get featured here is to submit your posts immediately after you publish them on your blog, the maximum time being within 24 hours of publishing it on your blog. Beyond that, it would have had to be a real slow day in IndiBlogger ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe someday the posts you choose could feature here, like a playlist if you will. We will let you know ๐Ÿ™‚

3) Special Feature:

This section is basically to honor posts of a specific topic of the choosers interest. A lot of people seem to like Travel and some lists are around that! ๐Ÿ™‚ However going forward, We are hoping to give as many different aspects of content, opportunities to get noticed here.

These posts could be selected from any time period as long as they are submitted into IndiBlogger. So don’t be surprised if a post from 5 years ago makes it to a “Timeless advice” featured section ๐Ÿ™‚

The IndiBlogger home page is the most visited page on IndiBlogger and is a great place to have your latest posts featured there, so come on in and partake.

Once your post is selected:

You will receive a badge that states “Featured post” or “Top Post” depending on the selection.

This badge will be sent by email with instructions on how it can be added to your blog post as well.

You can also verify the badge on post summary page:

If your selected featured post becomes a Top post only the “Top” post badge will be visible on the Post Summary page.

Want to take this a step further?
