Featured Writer Awards and Rankings
At GolfWRX, we strive to recognize the vast amount of golf knowledge that exists in the community. To do this, we created the Featured Writers Program, which provides an outlet for leading members of the community to share their passions with the world.
The Featured Writers Program has also instituted a performance-based system of awards and rankings that allows the very best writers to gain exposure in a prominent position on the front page and throughout the site.
Featured writers can win an award in one of three ways: Amount of views, Editor’s Choice and Writer of the Month.
1) Amount of views: Each time a story is clicked on, it gets a view. If an article reaches a certain threshold of views, it will receive an award: bronze, silver or gold, based on its popularity.
|Bronze Medal = 20,000 views|
|Silver Medal = 40,000 views|
|Gold Medal = 60,000 views|
2) Editor’s choice: Views are great, but the best stories don’t always win a popularity contest. That’s why our editors can recognize an exceptional story, regardless of page views.

3) Writer of the Month: Each month, our editors will award a writer who has contributed work that proved to be exceptional in insight, style, body of work or timing.

Rankings are based on seniority and/or merit. Celebrated writers who join the GolfWRX Featured Writers team can earn an immediate Senior Writer ranking. Less experienced writers can also move to the top of the rankings by providing exceptional content on a regular basis.
When an author reaches Senior Writer Level III, they will earn a permanent place in Featured Writer Widget on the front page and additional areas of the site. These locations will allow for more than one million page views a month of additional exposure.
Here is the breakdown on Writer Rankings:
