In a recent press release this month by EzineArticles expert author Kevin Stirtz, he said: “Kevin Stirtz, a professional speaker and author based in Minneapolis, was named to the Top 10 List of Marketing Authors for the EzineArticles.com website today.”
So I started typing off a private email to Kevin to ask him to take it down as we didn’t issue any such award or recognition, but it was then that I realized that he saw his 37 marketing articles listed in the top 10 authors BY ARTICLE QUANTITY listed here: Top Authors in Business:Marketing
First, kudos to Kevin for seizing this opportunity to create a press release and more exposure for himself.
Second, I have this feeling that we need to put some educational copy for each of the top 10 segments that identifies that the Top 10 List is really a top 10 authors by QUANTITY and it’s in no way a reflection of our endorsement in terms of QUALITY.
I’m not saying Kevin’s articles aren’t quality as I think they are… but my point is that our Top 10 List By Category By Quantity might need some clarification…
In fact, we still have not implemented our Editorial Awards thing yet, largely because it’s highly subjective and we have some more programming to do to implement it within our editorial management interface.
What kind of wording or phrasing do you think we should create for the Top 10 Articles By Quantity in each section of the 222 categories of EzineArticles.com?
