TWC (and other vote) Links for Your Webcomics
« on: March 18, 2012, 01:33:00 PM »
We had something like this over at Palace in the Sky before it went bottoms up, and it was pretty cool.  We had a group who would all vote for each other every day.  A lot of the people on the list ended up in the top 100.

Since this forum is public, both the creators AND the fans can use the list. :D

So post your TWC vote gateway and comic title, and I'll edit it into this OP post for reference.  I am not going to mandate everyone who wants to be added to the list HAS to vote, but it sure would be swell if you came by once in a while to help others. 

ZE LIST!
Aspect
Beast Legion
Between Places
Boy Aurus
Chasing the Sunset
Chirault
Crossing Death
Ears for Elves
Fera
The Forgotten Order
From the Machine
Gran Grimoire
Halflight
Jikoshia
Killjoy
Lavender Legend
Magenta
Monster or Myth
Overlord of Ravenfell
Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan
Spindrift

hmmmoke here's the one for Spindrift: http://topwebcomics.com/vote/13319/default.aspx

I must admit I have slightly mixed feelings about this tho. I give in because like you said it happens on other forums and that I'm not entirely fond of the TWC system in general and that I'd be happy to throw some rocks at it :P.

Also Dutifully voted.

I've never subscribed to TWC, because I didn't quite understand the point of the whole voting thing.  It looks like unnecessary manual work for your readers.  Does it really pull in more eyeballs, in your experience?

The Belfry and The Webcomics List IMO have a slightly better system, since they go by weekly readership and subscriber numbers.  But, they're far from perfect.  ComicRank appears to be a better effort, but again numbers can be gamed depending on how the author chooses to implement their buttons.

Truthfully I like those other sites better, too.  Comic Hovel (aside from the horrendous choice of name) is the best one IMO.  But TWC is the foremost site for webcomic rankings, and it does bring in some unique hits when I actually pay attention to it (adding new incentives and such).  People like voting for things, it's the American Idol effect.    If you stay at least somewhat involved, it gives people a reason to come back more often. 

I don't like the TWC system 100% because those comics that "win" (remaining high enough to show banners) already have more traffic than TWC itself probably has.  I ignored it for many years, but people continued to ask me about it until I finally brought it back.  They don't have sites like Penny Arcade or Least I could Do in the running, but the cap is still higher than most of us can accomplish.  I wish that the entire front page would show banners, though.  What's the point of having one if  only the top 10 comics are going to display them?

ComicRank is more of a creator tool.  I don't think that any readers actually go there.  Even when I end up in the "top picks" I don't get hits coming in.  Their ads are consistently below 5 cents. 

I like The Webcomic List, but their numbers are (or at least used to be) easy to manipulate.  I jumped up to the top 10 one day by doing buying a featured spot, because the number of outgoing links suddenly became disproportionate to incoming ones, or something like that.  The score isn't the main focus of the site anyway, it's just kinda there.
