How to make sure that your article gets read.
If you’re reading this, then chances are you’re trying to make it as a writer on the internet. This is great, but means that you are going to have to start thinking about the things that you can do in order to make sure that you get plenty of views on your work. The following tips should be able to help you to do this, and this should mean that you’re able to get the views that you need in order to earn yourself some decent money.
The first thing that you need to consider is the topic that you’re going to write about. You either need to pick something that you already know a lot about or something that you will enjoy researching, as nothing is worse than an article that you’re not enjoying that you then have to dedicate a lot of time to researching. If you can, you should try to write about something that not all that many people have already written about in the past. For example, you might not want to write about things that are hot in the news at the moment, as chances are your article is just going to get lost amongst everything else that’s being written, meaning that you won’t get many views at all. If you try and write something unique, then your work will be the first thing that comes up on search engines.
Writing your article is very important. Before anything is published, it should be checked for spelling, grammar and readability to make sure that your work flows and that you’re able to get the points of your article easily without having to think too much about it. The less effort that a reader has to put into reading your work, the more likely they are to be able to come back in the future and read some more.
Adding tags to your articles is key. You want to sum up what your article is about in as many words as you can, so that when people use search engines, they will be able to get to your work easily. You don’t want to add tags just because you think they might be popular, as people will then find your work and might be annoyed because it isn’t what they were expecting to find. Good tags can bring you a tremendous amount of traffic, so it is certainly worth bearing in mind the tags that you’re adding.
Advertising your articles is something that is quite difficult to get right. Ideally, you want to be able to get your work to as many people as possible, but you don’t want it to sounds as though you’re trying to spam, because then you will annoy your readers and they won’t be likely to read any more of your work. I write a lot about weight loss and dieting, and will publish the links to my weight loss social networking website, and usually get a couple of hundred views from it. This is great, because they find it helpful to them, and I get the views that I need in order to earn money from my article.
Overall, if you follow these steps then you should find that you get a decent amount of traffic and lots of fans to extend your fan base. Your regular subscribers are one of the most important sources of traffic, as they are the ones who are going to be able to recommend you as a writer. Nothing is more effective than word of mouth, so making sure that you are as helpful as possible can be hugely beneficial to you.
