Don't leave money on the table. Leverage general tags for extra earnings
Yesterday I posted about using the right tags in posts.
Typically, the number of tags you are limited to is 10. (That's the case for peakd's UI).
Check out this screenshot and you will notice that these two posts leverage similar but slightly different tags:
This great tool (URL https://hiveengine.usehive.com/) can show you pending token payouts for your posts on the blockchain. That's where I created the screenshot.
First post has fewer tags and fewer payouts.
The first post on the list is my "How your ACTIVITY on the blockchain can feed PASSIVE income."
^^^ That's a screenshot of the tags I entered when submitting my post. Apparently I beefed this one. :)
The tool doesn't list SPT payouts yet. I earned 56.464 SPT for this post. (For those of you wanting to earn SPT as well, check out this post.
The remainder of the tags don't really pay, but they help with aggregation post types based on tagging\subject matter on the blockchain.
There's plenty of secondary usage for tags besides just earning, and I fill the remainder of my tags with topics to help catalog it.
Second post has more token tags and therefore more payouts.
The second post you see in the output from the tool is my "Earning CTP via CTPM... # winning! I just bought 205 CTPM Miners".
From this screenshot you can see I added additional tags that impacted my payouts:
- The ~0.43 NEOXAG token payout comes from the #neoxian tag I used.
- Likewise the ~1.33 POB tokens are from my use of the #proofofbrain tag.
- My SPT payout for this so far is 4.863 SPT
Those roughly exchange into: ~ 0.00047 Hive for the NOEXAG and 0.399 Hive for the POB.
I earned around 0.4 hive more with the tags, and that's not even with the same number of upvotes, etc.
Realistically ~ 0.4 HIVE I earned on the post WITH the tags, and a big zero - goose egg - nada - zilch earned in those tokens on my first post.
Use all 10 Tags for max profits.
For those of you in the back, THIS is why we make sure to use all 10 tags available per post.
If I consistently do this over time, I will wind up with additional 2nd layer tokens that are really worth something. Glad I could use my example of what NOT to do in a way to help you see what TO DO instead. :)
Tip: Back the communities you love.
There's a lof of other tags and tokens. Find the ones that matter to you.
What tags do YOU leverage?
I find that the ones on the bottom of this post are my most consistently used ones.
Which ones do you use for great effect?
Let me know what tags you use and why. I am always looking to learn more about the blockchain and the myriad of communities. Let's chat below. Leave a comment!
Peace and love,
