Success With Article Marketing – How To Get More People To Read Your Articles

One way to make sure more people read your articles is to use powerful article titles and descriptions.

If you spend time learning the art of creating attention grabbing keyword rich articles and make sure your article description gives your intended market a good reason to read your article, you will get many more people reading your articles.

Make use of author reports in Ezine Articles

Ezine Articles offer a lot of useful statistics. It’s worth looking at your author reports in Ezine Articles and working out why one article is more successful than another.

Why these two similar articles got very different results.

I was pleased with this article title, yet the article only got 32 views in 3 months

      First Page of Google – The Recipe For Getting on the First Page of Google in Less Than Thirty Days

  • Discover how you can get your website on the first page of Google even if you’re not an SEO expert. Being on the first page of Google  mean the difference between success and failure. Applying these simple strategies will cause your site to rise in the search engine  rankings.

I was disappointed that this article had so few views. I knew it was a good article and deserved to be read. So, I rewrote the article,  gave it a more keyword focused title, and made the article description more inviting.

The results were amazing – the second article has had 1200 views so far, and been published on multiple websites or blogs. The result is that lots of people have downloaded my free audio, I have more subscribers and more people have bought my book Optimize Your Website.

      First Page of Google – How to Get Your Website on the First Page of Google

  • Why does my website need to be on the first page of Google? If your website isn’t on the first page of Google it is virtually invisible. Only 10% of searchers bother to search beyond the first page of search results. If your site is not on the first few pages, it is unlikely that your web site will ever be seen – except by you and your friends!

Why did the second article get so many views in comparison?

Was this article’s success due to

  • The article description or teaser?
  • The fact that this article is listed on the first page of Google when you search for how to get on the first page of google?
  • The fact that this article is listed number 2 in Most Viewed EzineArticles in the Internet-and-Businesses-Online:SEO Category?

It’s probably a combination of factors, but the fact that my article is listed in the most viewed in 90 days certainly helps!

Part of my success with the second article is due to the strategies I learned in Article Stars. I highly recommend that you get a copy and apply the traffic boosting strategies to your own articles. Let me know how you get on

I would be interested to know which of the two titles you prefer and to hear your suggestions for an even better one.  Please leave a comment below.

  1. Lynne, good article. I can quite understand why the second one was more successful. The title in the first instance made it sound a bit like hard work – 30 days to get to page 1!

    The second one ‘sells the sizzle, not the sausage’ and it’s a good reminder to keep things simple.

  2. Clearly article marketing is the best way to gain relevant back links. Additionally these back links are gained slowly, not explosively; a characteristic search engines look for. In a very short period of time, your site becomes an authority site, and organic listings develop. It is vital to include appropriate anchor text, and links in the author resource box.
