Do You Know The Three Distribution Categories on Medium?

  • 2 min read

Knowing how Medium works can help you tailor your stories to reach the right eyes or a LOT of eyes.

Ever hit the ‘publish’ button on Medium and wondered where your precious words are going?

If you want to get read, you need to get Boosted.

This is the VIP lane.

However, I was asked about organic reach and distribution.

Let’s pull back the curtain based on Medium’s latest update on its quality guidelines for the Boost which also tells us a lot about the three updated distribution categories.

There’s a method to the madness.

If you hit publish, your stories land in one of these three categories:

  1. Boosted
  2. General Distribution
  3. Network Only

Yep, that’s it.

Three categories steer the fate of your storytelling.

Knowing how Medium works helps you tailor your stories to reach the right eyes or a LOT of eyes.

But here’s the kicker — no single lane promises fame or obscurity.

Stories that aren’t Boosted can — and do — rake in thousands of views.
