As you may have noticed, many of our listings are marked with special tags. These tags include premium, verified, poor quality, sold, etc. These tags aren’t automatic, and just because a listing isn’t marked premium, it doesn’t mean that it actually isn’t premium. Here are a few things to know about tags, they’re worth learning about, as listings marked premium usually sell a lot quicker, and for a much better price.
While our staff will sometimes (randomly) add a tag to a listing we know is premium, we typically just wait until we’re asked to do so. In order to receive a premium tag, your property will have to meet certain minimum requirements.
To receive a premium tag, your property must meet the following requirements:
- At least 50% of the fans/followers/traffic has to come from tier-one countries. To see the list of which country qualifies, see the next post below.
- The account has to show decent organic activity. This will be decided by our staff.
- No automation was used to grow the property.
Please remember, the premium tag only means that initially, the property looks good. The premium tag isn’t a full endorsement by our staff. To get a fully verified listing with a full endorsement, you will need to apply for our verified tag.
To get a verified tag, your property needs to meet all the guidelines specified for a premium tag. Additionally, you will need to grant SWAPD staff full access to your property, so it can be fully verified from within. This is the only way to receive a verified badge on SWAPD. We will return the property to you after the verification is complete. Also, not every platform requires a full transfer for verification. Facebook, Google Plus Pages, and YouTube channels have the ability to add other staff, without transferring ownership.
Due to limited staff and high workload, we ask you only to submit properties that fully qualify. Requests that do not pass our guidelines will receive a ‘poor quality’ tag, and that is something that will lower your chances of selling your property.
The poor quality tag is usually given to properties that:
- have poor - nonexistent activity
- are built via engagement networks
- feature artificial activity (bots)
- have strange (aka “iffy”) history
