Another Example of why using the RIGHT tags can earn you more Hive. Doubling post rewards through 2nd layer.

Yesterday I wrote about how to use tags to earn second layer tokens. I wanted to go BACK to that topic and emphasize how much additional earnings you can make by using the right tags.

While this post may be about earnings, just remember that when using these tags, your posts are going to Hive front-ends where your content is read by PEOPLE. You can use proper tags but if your content sucks don't expect to make much.

^^^ Those are the rewards I am currently expecting a post to produce.

The post? A simple one called "Don't leave money on the table. Leverage general tags for extra earnings" that I wrote yesterday.

Discussing a great tool that showed post payouts, I decided to use it this morning to go back and check to see what earnings I could expect to be paid out on the post.

The great part is that I can review the token payout, then convert it to Hive Value for post comparison. The Hive/token values you see above are from this morning September 19th.

The post payout increased by 2.54 Hive because I used the RIGHT tags.

The post itself earned 2.78 HBD, and when converted to hive at market value, you can see the difference.

With second layer, that post will pay out 5.32, if I convert the earnings to hive. Without those tags I would've earned 2.78. That's a difference of 2.54 Hive.

Depending on the post and the tag used, I have seen several instances where the second layer coin payouts are sometimes significantly higher than the base hive payout amounts, just by the accounts that are upvoting.

All that to say: Use 10 tags per post for max payout, and pick good tags.

See my post from yesterday about the whole process as well. :) I thoroughly enjoy this topic and am always on the lookout for good communities to connect with.

What's your favorite tags? I asked this recently but it's worth a repeat. What tags do you use and WHY?

Peace and Love,

P.S. The chart above doesn't show it, but I also earned 46.107 SPT for the post as well. For those of you playing Splinterlands you know what that means. :D

Thanks. It's a fascinating topic, and I track a lot of stuff like this to figure out the best way to provide value to my followers while still earning as much as I can to increase ROI. I am a marketer, after all. :)

Thanks for the post @threesteps! I was only made aware of this awesome mechanic recently, but since their discovery I've definitely got a couple favorites now.

I think my top favorite would probably be the 'leofinance' tag, followed by 'neoxian', 'proofofbrain' and a couple other more like 'archon' and 'battle'.

I'm still experimenting, but these have definitely been pretty good to me!

Nice. Those are good tags. My recommendation would be to begin building your reputation around quality posts. That attracts bigger upvotes by some of the higher up accounts. I love it when a whale upvotes my post and I earn several dollars in Hive.

I'm still in learning mode and appreciated your original post about tags and tokens.

My SPT posts in general are not big HIVE generators or at least that has been my short experience. Where the real value is in creating content about my Splinterlands experiences has been in SPT tokens. I'm actually more excited about the SPT than I am about the HVE I could earn from a post.

Thanks for continuing to share what you are learning as you dive into the wonderful world of HIVE. Cheers!

Thanks for the comment. I also blog about SL and stake the SPT and all of my SPS that I earn. Growing this account. The trick is not to let the other communities\tokens slide, since I have been using them much longer.
