Low Rankings for Buddypress sites

  • ianjayb


    I have a theory that Buddypress posts do not rank higher(this is only based on Alexa Rank – havent checked compete and quantcast) compared to a normal WordPress post. I observed that many Buddypress sites have thousands of pages but weak traffic.

    Can anyone comment?

    Is this something about Google’s treating a social network compared to blogs? Or is it a lack of integration of pinging? Or maybe overpinging because Social network pages change very often.

    My last question is this: how are WordPress Posts different from Buddypress posts?

    BuddyPress “Posts” per se are WordPress Posts. BuddyPress is a plugin for WordPress which adds a social network layer to WordPress == Activity Streams, Extended Profiles, User Groups, integrated bbPress Forums and the like. Other than that, blog Posts and regular Pages published even with BuddyPress activated, are generated using WordPress. Perhaps you’re mixing up terminologies from other platforms. As for rankings, which site are you citing above?



    Thank you mercime.

    I am working with my programmer on a social network-blog. I wanted the plain wordpress for the lightness. They want to use buddypress on wordpress. I just feel buddypress is just too heavy so I visited and was wondering why most of these sites have Alexa lower than 800,000. (I launched a site and got to 1,000,000 in 2 months. I have another site (both with less than 400 pages by google), I am now in 600,000)

    Mercime, thanks, your answer gave me comfort and assurance of my direction. Godbless your sites 😉
