I think you must have posted more than 10 blogs per week.  You don't get points for 11 or mor blogs per week.  Normally you would get points.

If you do it as a blog post, yes you get the points.  I'm guessing you are over 10 posts for the week. Check your stats page.

Good morning Bob. I would think as long as you haven't gone over 10 posts per week, it is my understanding you would get the points.

I have always gotten points for my listing posts. I haven't heard of any changes that way. You know you can do 10 posts a week for points. Anything over that number won't get you points. The week starts on Monday and end on Sunday. I hope you find this helpful.

If you don't, that is new. Anytime you write a post over 50 words you get 225 points.

Last I heard you still get points for listings, and AR does encourage this, look at how many listings our owner posts every week.

Not sure if you're asking if there are extra points for posting a listing. Anytime I post one, I just assume I get the normal points for a new post. Maybe you've gone over your 10/week limit for points, Bob.

Bob - You only get points on the first 10 blogs you post each week. I am not exactly sure when that week starts or ends though. However, you are still getting exposure for your listing.

you only get 10 posts a week, so if you have posted more than that, no points. Also posts require 50 words each.

I have never had a problem getting my 225 points for blogging about a listing.  You just need to make sure you hit the 50 word minimum and not post more than 10 blogs per week (after #10 they don't count for points, unfortunately).

Up to 10 posts a month you get points. When you exceed that you get 0. It there are not enough words you also will not earn points. It used to be 50 but not sure if that amount changed.

Bob -- as I can see from the answers -- you now know a lot more about ActiveRain and points --- the information that is shared makes this such a great platform.

You should get points for listing posts. You must have maxed out on 10 posts/week.
