Why can’t I get upvotes on Hive?

Why can’t I get upvotes on Hive?

Direct from the desk of Dane Williams.




Because you’re either not adding value or you’re not showing that you are to those with stake.

It’s as simple as that.

Every single day on the daily crypto blog or the community Discord, the same question flicks by.

“How can I get upvotes?”

Almost every one of those asking this question have their mind set on cutting corners and taking shortcuts.

Looking to paste their low quality, spammy content that adds zero ongoing value to Hive or the LeoFinance platform

Thinking that a whale with stake thinks their sob story is so much better than the 1000 others whose sob stories they’ve read that day.

There are no shortcuts to getting upvotes on Hive

If you’re struggling to get upvotes on Hive, stop trying to cut corners or ask for handouts.

Hive is a business.

Start treating it like one.

And like any business where money is at stake, all that matters is that you add value to the platform.

Then put that value which you’ve provided in front of those with stake.

You see, the Hive blockchain uses a system of stake weighted voting in order to distribute HIVE inflation via a daily rewards pool.

People stake their HIVE and therefore want to distribute a larger portion of new supply to those who are working to increase the value of their investment.

If you’re writing short, unformatted, random garbage and expecting to be rewarded, it’s just not going to happen.

Why would anyone who has invested and taken a stake in the platform, want to pay you to diminish the value of their investment?

It just doesn't make any sense!

If you want to get upvotes on Hive, you need to focus on producing quality content that adds value to the platform.

There’s no shortcuts to be taken if you want to build a consistent stream of income from your writing.

Write quality content.

Not all upvotes on Hive are created equal

So let’s now fast forward a little down the line.

I can already hear your next complaint, so let me answer it for you before you get a chance to blurt it out.

“I’m creating SEO optimised, well formatted, long form content that will add ongoing value to Hive and LeoFinance.”

“But I’m STILL not getting upvotes!”

“Why not?”

The bottom line is that you need to put yourself in front of those that matter.

And the only ones that matter in this regard are those already on the platform with stake.

You just have to remember that In Hive’s stake weighted voting system, 1000 upvotes from nobodies are worth less than 1 single upvote from a whale.

Those with stake are all that matter

The more significant their stake, the more important it is to be in front of them!

How, you ask?

Well think about this.

For every whale with stake who is actively searching for new, up and coming content creators who continue to add value to the platform, there are 10 either using an autovoter or lurking in their same closed circles.

So take the initiative!

They’re not going to magically find your work so make them find it instead.

It’s up to you to literally put your name and your content in front of them.

Comment on their content directly.

Jump into the comments section of the most popular blogs that they have commented on and add to the conversation.

Literally weave links to your content into the replies by placing them under relevant anchor text.

As long as it’s adding value and related, linking in this manner is actually encouraged as it will help Google index related our content quicker and ultimately drive more traffic to the domain.

Do everything in your power to make them see that your username is adding value to the platform and ultimately helping their investment.

I 100% guarantee that if you do this, those with stake will click your name to dig deeper into your content.

Where if it is the well formatted, value adding content that you say it is, they will upvote you.

Big, fat, juicy whale upvotes.

Best of probabilities to you.

PS. Sorry if I sound like a prick more abrasive today, it's been a long day.

I promise I'll reply to any questions you may have in the comments section in a nicer tone ;)

Task and chinco's advice is great.

Put yourself out there by adding value and whales will notice you.

If they haven't noticed you yet, then keep putting yourself out there by adding value.

Do everything in your power to make them see that your username is adding value to the platform and ultimately helping their investment.

This sums it up nicely, in my opinion. If people see your name often enough, they will eventually notice you and remember you the next time they stumble upon one of your posts. Most (if not all whales) have a number of reasons why they want to see Hive and its tribes grow so if they perceive you as a value-generating agent, they will most likely support and upvote your content, provided it meets minimum quality criteria.

As long as it’s adding value and related, linking in this manner is actually encouraged as it will help Google index related our content quicker and ultimately drive more traffic to the domain.

This is a great tip! I don't think I do this enough, actually. I'll keep that in mind next time I think one of my articles can contribute to a conversation.

Your content itself is already well structured and optimised for SEO.

But yep, if you have talked about a related topic, don't be shy to link to it in the comments of another blog that is getting more exposure.

Obviously don't be an annoying spammer begging for a vote, but just subtly include it under relevant anchor text and explain your point of view in a constructive way.

It will both help you get more eyeballs on your content and the domain with SEO.

I am still stuck in the old HIVE culture of it being RUDE to leave your link on someone else's posts.

In a way, we are all competing for that upvote so leaving competition on my post can be seen as, well, rude.

BUT

Its time we start thinking big picture, and relevant links are good for SEO

Thanks for the reminder, the blockchain evolves and so do our habits.

It is not an easy task to add value to hive, but it is achievable. If you put in the effort you will see upvotes coming in in the long run.
Some things you can do to get more people to see your content:

  • share on social media
  • promote with listnerds
  • commenting on other authors posts
  • making guides is a great way to add value
  • genuine unique content without copy pasted shitcontent helps a lot
  • use some of your income to promote your post on the frontends
  • engagement, engagement, engagement

Using Ecency, a 7-day promotion costs 500 Ecency Points, which is roughly worth 1 HIVE.

Using LEO to promote the same post at LeoFinance, it's still worth whatever amount of LEO equals 1 HIVE. There's no set fee schedule for promoting a LeoFinance post, but that's the math I use.

Ecency promotions have been more helpful than not. Many upvotes I get are due to them, which is why I use them. However, there is minimal overlap between Ecency users and LeoFinance users; I thought the overlap would be greater. Ecency promotions are a great marketing tool, but relying on it primarily is not enough.

reblogging simply makes it so your followers can see the articles somebody else wrote.

It used to be an important part of curation, back when curation was stupid (there were weights and if you voted first you got more curation rewards than others) and you wanted people to vote on content after you did.

Reblogging is engagement and all forms of engagement can be turned into a strategy.

Do some experiments, let us know how magical this reblogging thing is.

I look forward to seeing your post.

Isn't this part of acquiring an ownership mentality, or at least understanding what the ownership mentality expects from us?

I'm asking because after I saw you mention the term a few times I began doing off-chain research. I will not say I went down the rabbit hole since that implies it took me deeper into nowhere and that's not true. However, I need time to review what I had discovered off-chain before I can make sense of it and apply it here.

It is a simple concept.

You own shares in LEO. Every time you earn another token, you earn another share in the company.

Since you own it, everything you do to help it grow, or tend to it is having the ownership mentality.

You can help grow your business, (the LEO business) by writing great articles, or engaging in a manner that makes people want to stay, you can talk about it to real life people.

Basically anything you do to tend to your LEO garden is taking ownership.

Since you own it, everything you do to help it grow, or tend to it is having the ownership mentality.

In terms of USD, LEO is my greatest Layer 2 investment. Outside Hive blockchain, my greatest holdings are now in CUB. I've been shifting assets around to focus on these two priorities. Even the diesel pools I'm in are geared to supporting these priorities.

You can help grow your business, (the LEO business) by writing great articles, or engaging in a manner that makes people want to stay, you can talk about it to real life people.

I want to say I write great articles, but that's not for me to say. As Bill Parcells keeps saying, "you are what your record says you are." This means I'm not there yet and have more work to do.

I want to say that I engage in a manner that makes people want to stay, or at least join, or join and stay. Here I may be more successful, even if I come off as being a bit eccentric or "off".

Talking to real life people is something I need to do more of for certain. At least in my area I know that I know more about crypto than many people, and I'm trying to distill that knowledge into a series of "elevator pitches" to get people to consider what I say after we meet. With all we have to deal with in our lives these days, time is even more precious than before and I don't want to waste their time with 5-minute presentations when they can only spare 30 seconds. Here, I need to get my own head clear before I can proceed.

The employee mentality won't get us anywhere no matter what activity we do in life. I'm still at a manager mentality where doing more gets me more than an employee, but essentially that just means i'm a better-compensated employee. Ownership mentality is where true changes can be found and made.

Some of the people here are mere employees.

They take their wages and leave.

Me, I am an OWNER.

Regarding your articles not being "good enough," there is always room for improvement of course, but more important is bumping into people who like what you have to offer just as it comes.

It is easy for a first grader to be a mentor to a kindergardner sort of thinking.

You already have a wealth of knowledge its just about finding the people who could use that wealth.

I have some CUB too -but I bought in when it was like 2.00 USD and again when it was like 0.65 so I am trying not too look at it too much - though I should make sure everything is staked...

It is easy for a first grader to be a mentor to a kindergardner sort of thinking.

A few people come to LeoFinance (and Hive) already being "high schoolers" in terms of crypto knowledge and experience, and there are Leos (and Hivers) who provide content at that level.

More Leos come here at a lower level of knowledge. Last year I was one of them. This year I have enough knowledge to offer those coming after me. During the course of the next year we'll both advance in knowledge together. If I repeat this long enough, I'll be one of the "high schoolers" while today's "high schoolers" are "undergraduates" in crypto.

I have some CUB too -but I bought in when it was like 2.00 USD and again when it was like 0.65 so I am trying not too look at it too much - though I should make sure everything is staked...

It's not looking good for CUB these days, with an ATL around the corner each day. However, CUB is the foundation for PolyCub and future projects involving CUB on THORChain and Fantom and who knows what else. The ATLs will stop, and the price rises will resume. Future airdrops will be based in part on what's in Cub Finance on BSC along with POLYCUB at PolyCub. It's not often we get a chance to start over or just start fresh, and we can do that now with CUB.

I want to be as optimistic about POB, but I'm not hearing anything about what's happening there. At least I have hope with CUB, even if hope isn't enough reason to hit that large flashing BUY button.

HODL long enough, and losses turn to gains which first bring you back to even and then gains which add wealth. If you have a good amount of CUB already, then it's not as much of a concern. For someone like me (who missed the first year of CUB), it's a chance to make up for lost time using minimal resources.

No one wants an empty bag because prices drop to zero, and that's what happened to me a few months ago when a few Layer 2 tokens. I had bought lots of POB with the expectations that prices would rise enough to justify my buy while prices were falling, but that knife kept falling and it's looking to be an empty bag for me as well.

LEO should be higher, but all things considered it's doing OK enough to generate buzz thanks to projects such as Cub Finance, PolyCub, the upcoming *Cub projects, the bridges, Wrapped LEO, and the long-awaited #ProjectBlank.

Thinking about Hive like a business is a good way of going about things.

You want upvotes from people who have taken a stake in the platform by buying HIVE and powering it up.

Task means that what you've described here is called "tag spamming".

Obviously this is not adding value and something curators look out for.

My own rule of thumb when tagging is to try and use 5 relevant topic tags and then 5 related or general community tags.

The first 5 tags are key for helping curators find relevant content and Google ultimately crawl our front-end domains.

The second 5 are to help with getting noticed for upvotes because different communities sort their content differently.

Take a look at how I've tagged this one for example.

But yeah, just don't spam random shit like tagging food content with LeoFinance.

Like the other day I saw JackFruit for sale for $2.50 here I would pay $40 for it.

Back in the day the @steemitmamas would post about their meals and how much it cost - it was very eye opening.

So like me, here in SoCal, everytime I admit how much I spend on food (at least $1200 per month) someone here has something to say about how expensive that is and someone else is gonna tell me how cheap that is.

Really, encourage the food/money posts, for ME!

Those with stake are all that matter

Another great, straight to the point, no fluff article, and even though I agree with every single word of this, I still want to add something:

While those with stake is all that matter in terms of you earning rewards or not, you never know who's vote that might end up being valuable.

For that reason, I personally think- and believe that everyone, especially newcomers, should always strive to build an audience, grow their followers and increase credibility and reputation on site.

In my opinion, I think that responding to comments on your own content is literally the first step of doing that. Going outside of your own content is the next step, but it's equally important as the first.

@hitmeasap was one of the first people I followed.

He wrote a post about how he pulled out some earnings and bought himself stuff (it was silly things like jeans and headphones and such) but it made me SEE that I could use this income to get my kids the extra "little stuff" that I thought I wanted to give them.

Then I totally turned on my kids and instead of providing them with little extras, I stopped buying them Friday Night Pizza's so I could invest in HIVE.

Exactly. I am not currently one, but I was a LEO whale in the past and I will be again ;-) In the meantime, I am still consuming and voting on content.

Those that catch my attention today get small upvotes, but I follow or remember them. Over time, they will continue to get my votes and those will gradually grow larger and larger. Then my vote recipients will be very happy, but they will have to stick it out to get there.

Beggers always get skipped by me. Seems harsh but I guess I am biased because of my upbringing (was always taught not to beg -- and I guess because of that it rubs me the wrong way).

Repeat beggers get put in the memory banks as losing all future chances. Not fair, but it is just how I am wired.

I myself post very little because I often don't think I have much to offer. I realize that I could get more revenue if I did, but don't want to put out lots of low value stuff. A reputation is hard to gain, but easy to lose.

As all above have said, comments are the best way to engage. People are much less judgemental of comments because they view them as a conversation and not a work to be graded. After all, it's just a conversation (and no one likes a conversation where all the other person does is beg them for something).

It is also easier to provide value in a conversation. Just listen and respond with something that shows you were interested and might be helpful or a fresh viewpoint.

Ironically I am ruining this conversation with my blathering :-) So I will go. Rant off!

This blog by the way @forexbrokr was awesome!

This is probably very true. I've never really looked at it like that, but I have been struggling more than once to create content because I haven't felt that it was good enough. I don't really care about that when it comes to comments, because I'm just basically telling people what's on my mind at that time.

In the meantime, you should definitely create content if you want to.

You're obviously quite a good writer and with just a little structure, you would definitely not be spamming the community.

https://leofinance.io/@steemstreems/7geqwr-my-stupendously-stupid-steemleo-success-strategy

One of my handful of existing posts.

Was about the only smart thing I have done on LEO in all this time. Of course I didn't know that for sure back then, but I thought it would be smart. Turns out it was. :-)

I have been a LEO believer since it started.

Wish I'd have bought more of course :-)

Many of the people I vote for now earned my following when my upvote was worth 0.02 - now my vote is wort .30 + tokens.

So while I still can't support families on my upvote, I can add to the piggy bank with the fat coins as opposed to the pennies.

One day your vote will support families. Actually a couple of your 0.30 votes will and probably is supporting a family right now.

Thing is, you may never know if you have supported families, but that's ok, because you will have and that family will know.

Maybe that family will go on and support other families in turn with their LEO, once again without even knowing. It's a really neat and virtuous cycle.

I have a list of bloggers on an autovoter called HiveVote.

These are those that I trust to consistently post quality content and I therefore want to support them no matter what.

I keep the settings set to only vote once per 24 hours so nobody can just go rogue and drain my votes haha.

But I do think it's important to fully support certain authors who are showing up every day no matter what and adding value.


Interesting to note that the last addition to my autovoter was @jerrythefarmer.

His content is excellent and he's always in my comments and the comments on the LMT daily blog.

So I see it ALL THE TIME and just had to add it.

He is pretty much a perfect case study for getting votes on Hive.

You're one of the best on LeoFinance and I always try and upvote your content each day.

The only reason I don't have you on my once a day autovoter is because you sometimes put content in those other tribes and I miss out on the LEO curation rewards if it happens to vote those.

In my opinion, there isn't a way but ways to get upvotes . For instance, there are people who make low-quality content but still get support based on their other off-chain activities. I guess these are the people the newbies look up to and want to replicate their success.

"if he or she can shit post her way to the top, so can I"

However, if there is anything I can say after years of being on this platform, those who put in the work and genuinely care about what is being built here last. So it is left to all of us to choose our path.

I agree with you.
Hive is a business, the fact that it pays for one's content proves that it is a business....and like every other business, consistency is required, and it's not just about being consistent alone.

One needs to make sure that the time they spend here is worth it. One needs to improve themselves.

This is something that pays and it's also a reflection of who is so apart from bringing down the value of the platform, you're also tarnishing your reputation if you keep posting trashy content.

There is joy when you do what's worth doing, well. Keep learning, improve your self, think, and make sure your content has value before hitting on the publish button.

Even if you feel you're giving your all and you're not recognised, don't stop, rated be persistent and consistent.

Mind boggling.

😅

This is one reason why I get so upset when people around me tell me I'm always "pressing my phone".

The statement get me so upset that I had to put out a public notice that I won't be gentle or polite with whoever stresses me with the word again.

I'd rather they ask me what it is I am always doing and I will politely explain it to them.

Each time I write I always have to think about what to write from the title to the body of the post, I think about how to construct my words on the post, how to edit and format my post, the kind of images to use, and I have to proofread it again before finally publishing it. I must do my best to make sure that all I do is worth it. So when people around don't understand and just conclude it gets me upset. Sometimes I wonder if it's because I'm not doing it with a PC that would make it look professional.
Above all, I don't even care.

Add the fact that those with stake that you're trying to get upvotes from, have spent their hard earned money to buy HIVE off the market.

They don't want that investment to be wasted and therefore want to see value being added to the platform that will ultimately increase its associated token price.

I haven't seen either play, but rumour has it that the better keeper is Baqir.

Supposedly, Karar has far superior ball playing ability and distribution.

But from what I've heard, Baqir's pure shot stopping ability and athleticism that allows him to recover and make key double saves, puts the man on another level.

Not sounding like a prick at all, just wish I read this sooner.

On the other hand, I kinda knew this already. I just focussed on growing on other platforms first. Why? Because Hive and Leo need just a bit more work and attention and I had a lot to learn. But as I grew up on other platforms I am now ready to focus on the real deal and see if I can also become a household name on HIVE and LEO .....

I do know what you mean though and it can seem weird seeing what we'd interpret as low quality content with consistent upvote support.

But just remember that not everything is always as it looks on the surface.

There are some people that do add value in other ways.

Think relationship building, off-platform marketing or even just simply by putting their money where their mouth is and taking a huge stake.

But if they're genuinely spamming or circle jerking then other curators will soon catch on and downvote them.

They're literally incentivised to do so in order to protect the value of their own investment.

I have to say there's been a few times where new people jumped into LEO or even Hive and they provided quality content. However they sold everything lol idk just something to me when I see someone powering down huge amounts and not staking any just feels like an exit and not really providing value to the platform so my vote weight either stops for that person or is greatly diminished.

I feel like I've been here from the very start with a year break however due to the mess that happened. But all that time it was about working with others, building content and commenting on others as well as voting for others. There's a lot more to Hive/Leo besides simply writing great content and expecting people to come.

The whole "Build it and they will come" just doesn't work. It takes consistency, quality and willingness to devote time, money and resources to something. This is a growing business when you think about it.

That's the ultimate goal.

But you can definitely make money and still show you support the future of the platform by taking a stake.

If you truly do believe in the long term value of Hive/LeoFinance, then you will want to keep that initial investment anyway.

Many people have that attitude in Web 1.0 and Web 2.0, and they fail there, too. Marketing needs to be involved, yet it's a skill people haven't acquired. It's an underrated skill, yet it's what's needed to grow any business of any kind.

At least for tokenized blogging, it helps to have a built-in audience; we just have to put ourselves out there consistently and provide value as best as we can to our fellow Hivers and Leos. Relentless engagement is how we do most of our marketing here, but other forms or marketing exist as well; we should learn those skills too.

It's all about adding value and mix that with your creativity, recycling content esp trending ones is a nice idea but then it's boring... Adding value to Hive can be done in a lot of ways, you just have to find what best works for you.

Great advice...get there..in front of their faces...I think that's what a lot of us are doing wrong... we're hiding in shadows thinking these votes would find us...ómo..they wouldn't unless we go after them..

I find the concept that each Hive account has a social value based on your own personal brand, really interesting.

Like all other cryptocurrency wallets are just strings of numbers and nobody cares who they are or what they have to offer.

But on Hive, people know those who spam and those who add value and they ultimately are rewarded for it in the end.

Deep haha.

Engagement is key, if one wants upvotes and interaction they must provide the same to like minded content creators. Personally I don't focus on the rewards too much. Instead I try to create a successful blog of interaction via the comment section. Create multiple posts that get dozens of comments and someone with stake is bound to take notice.

please upvote me dear, i will kindly upvote you

HIVE blogging really is about quality content and name recognition. If you blog daily long enough and remain posting quality content, people with bigger stakes will more quickly click that upvote button. If you're reliable enough, sometimes they will autovote, knowing you're not wasting space on the blockchain. Build a following based on trust - trust that you're contributing content consistently that the stake holder wants to promote and see on the chain. This is the key to success here.

But don't try to PANDER to them, that's impossible to maintain and will be recognized as phony. Be yourself, be real, don't back down posting your opinions and content. Be consistent and build trust in your name.

When I see content from the desk of Dane Williams, I know I won't be wasting my time reading, or my vote upvoting.

Perfectly put.

Our Hive accounts all have an unspoken social reputation that in the long run, leads to earning upvotes (money).

Like you said, earn the community's trust and the upvotes you receive will go up alongside your social rep!


Okay, next part...

Haha, maybe you can set me straight here.

I take it that calling someone 'dear' in certain cultures is used in place of how we'd say 'mate' or 'pal'?

Reading it in comments always makes me laugh because all I can think of is my grandfather talking to grandma: "Yes dear, I'd love a cuppa!"

Yes this is good research for me as far as market psychology. I'm out to prove proof of brain doesn't work or stakeweighted voting but human energy vorting does. So i suspect proving this theory won't be instant but that's fine i've given myself enough time to crreate a system that converts human energy into cryptocurrency.

Proof of Brain creates rarity on the ability or inability of users to purchase stake or want to purchase stake. So in that way there isn't a real form of decentralized mining. So my point is this.. that the system will cap out because of this.

That doesn't mean the system doesn't have use. Those who wish to invest in stake makes the system and transactions free and that can be effective if used properly. So yes that probably will come through second layer.

i disagree with your corelation in upvoting and value. i think that thesis is what holds hive back.. However i'm not against the system completely in that it may be necessary to accomodate the system structure for free transactions.. which many would find of some value. So i'm okay with some of you paying the lunch bill but to overall grow the system value yes you need other components giving over value.. For example" there was a coin called electroneum that gave free crypto per month to people mostly useful in developing nations... but they incorporated a taskworker system so these people could trade online skills for the currency.

So the point is human energy adds value not a stakeweighted voting system.. On one hand it kinda does but the impact of the velocity of money growing the system doesn't work because generally those with stake hold on to it and those without it don't. So i been studying the system and i'm not surprised you all haven't grown in value and never break into the top 100 coins.. but a free second layer service may solve that problem and in such a system the value added to the hive ecosystem comes from human energy not a minority of stakeholders remember there is no system in human history where that's worked.

Any type of dual economies won't work. Neofeudalist systems are the worse value systems in human history.. So i kinda feel like it's the mouse in the hamster wheel or the dog chasing his tail in these type systems. Yes they in the beginning may have to exist this way.. Certainly the end doesn't work

I have taken q break from hive about twice in the little time I've been here. Both time, I actually thought of quitting because I wasn't getting upvotes and those that I got, had little to nothing in terms of value. But, reading this now, I see what I can do a little differently. Hopefully, it works for me.

I'd recommend trying to pick a more focused niche for your writing.

Then write daily posts on that same topic, always engaging with others talking about the same thing.

Consistency is key and you will ultimately build a following this way.

All the best mate!

I don't think you came off abrasive at all here. I've been noticing that my upvotes are going down recently on my content.

So either my content sucks more now or I've just pissed off too many people. I do like to highlight issues I see and debunk commonly repeated misconceptions people cling to. I don't do it to be negative but to alert people so a difference can be made and we all prosper.

I could see where that would not be in the best interest of the whales to upvote my content.

Oh well, I'll keep trying.

Whatever is going on with your tags are definitely having an effect.

Your content is as good as it has ever been, don't worry about that.

(I mean opinions and pissing people off drives engagement and makes money - Hence Facebook's algo haha!!)

But you've generated a bit of a following on LeoFinance and when the tags don't work you have to then duplicate the post or use another front-end and it messes everything up.

I'm super frustrated for you because you're one of my fav writers here.

Don't give up!

This is basically a fact. I've also asked same questions to a lot of veterans on the Blockchain, none has been brutally honest as this. I keep hearing consistency and quality, but the need for pro-level engagements as you've highlighted has not been as emphasized.

Thanks for the reminders. I'll do better, and I'll ensure guide those I onboard properly as well.
