The amount of leaderboards bloggers compete in is only limited by the amount of sports and topics they blog about.
. For example, bloggers who post about the Jets are automatically entered into the “NFL,” “AFC EAST,” “JETS,” and “ALL SPORTS” leaderboards.
The process works as follows:
SportsBlog leaderboards are based on the amount of traffic posts in certain categories receive (it is not based on how much traffic a blog in general receives).
Bloggers are emailed at the end of each month with their final rankings, and the blog owner also receives a digital trophy on their profile if they place within the Top 3 of a category.
Bloggers are automatically entered into leaderboards that belong to the parent of the topics they write about.
SportsBlog moderators categorize each post a blogger makes down to the team level (e.g.: NFL / AFC EAST / JETS)
SportsBlog keeps track of how many unique visitors those categorized posts receive throughout the month
SportsBlog adds up all of the unique visitors a blogger receives to posts in each category each month (resetting on the 1st of each month)
The aggregate amount of unique visitors received that month determines a blogger’s rank in the relevant category
Bloggers can be in the running for multiple leaderboards each month
