Hello folks! This issue discusses how to take an article that has no views and change it into a more viewed article.

          Okay! So you have an article, it has been out for awhile. You got some views , but not a lot.  This has happened with many of the articles I have written.  I have been able to revive them through a couple of steps which is what this guide issue will be on.

  Step# 1: Title….  Examine your title. for instance, this article when I first was thinking on writing it, it was going to be called “Triond Guide Issue 5: Increase your views “. But I felt the title I changed it to would catch more eyes and it still stayed within the topic of my article.

  Step# 2: Description: Alot of of articles I see no one even really attempts to put much here. I try to put one or two sentences , with kind of a summary. And I try to make it feel warm . Like ” Hey Folks” or thanking them in advance, or telling them to feel free to comment added to what you already have.

  Step# 3: Article Body: First and foremost, spell check. Then go over your article see if there needs yo be some editing or adding or taking away. Tinker with it. I also towards the end like to pose a question to my audience at the end like on this I might say ” Are there some ways you know to increase it???”"     And then say”feel free to share them here in the comments, cause half the fun is learning :)

You wouldn’t believe how many people who actually read an article almost always reply. The intention you are trying to do is what I call ” peaking curiosity” or what a salesman would call a “hook” More or less you encouraging them to comment and share it. I have seen dramatic changes with this  Step in place.

   Also, do you have photos on the articles or any video. Like movie reviews , automatically go to youtube and get the trailer for the movie and share it with the article. This  has also helped dress my articles as well.

  Step# 4:  Category… Make sure you go where your supposed to here… ” A pearl not in it’s shell is hard to capture”  Meaning if the people who are interested in your recipe, have to go to a poetry site to find it you are killing your views.

   Step# 5: Tags. VERY important. Always at least ten tags , and if no views I usually go add more. I always make sure that all the tags I use are relevant to my article. The more tags the more possibilities :)

         And Finally we are the end. Only one more thing to do. Sharing. Use the sharing sites. Buffer, SU ,Digg,bolt,and many many more. See if that helps you , it sure helped me.

    Yes, that is how to do it. Some of my articles take off like wildifre (well almost) and some don’t but I use the bookmarks and get the word out as best as possible. I spend a moderate amount of time doing so. Thanks for sharing. :)

  • Lynn Proctor on Jan 12, 2013

    Thank you for sharing those ideas. I think one of the most important things any writer can do to improve writing skills and their writing reputation, is to edit their work. That means (for me, at least), going back over the article carefully for misused words, typos, run-on sentences, capitalization where none is needed, or missing capitalization, missing hyphens or even just awkward sentences. It’s been many years since I took writing as a subject, and over time, skills are lost. I probably could use a refresher class!
