 You should now be ready to benchmark.

6. The leagues of their own – top 10 blogs in selected categories fail to work properly
Depending upon the category you assigned your blog to, this decides what top 10 blogs your blog will be compared to.
If you forgot to enter a category when you claimed your own blog, the system assigns a default category. Today this is HRM for Human Resource Management. The same happens if you forgot to assign the country (where is your blog’s home country such as Austria but hosted on a server in Belgium = home country Austria). Again a default would have been assigned, such as Germany.
Hence, to avoid being compared to blogs that are not in your own category really or not in your home country, please check and revise the entered information for your blog accordingly. The more accurate your information the better we can serve you with benchmarking data that is based on comparing apples with apples.
