Heyo Mursal! That's a great question.

To be honest, there's no sure-fire way to get your post featured in the top 7, but if you continue writing every week and try your best to share high quality, vendor neutral (generally at least), interesting posts while also being kind and helpful to folks in the comments of your post, your chances definitely increase!

Aw thought my top post would make it.

I would have loved to get more people on the discussion especially since it has more comments than the most liked post ever.

Yeah, also thought reactions, comments and views would rank higher, and these lists would match the Weekly top more.

But great job getting to the top with your article 💪
