Well there are a bunch of things to do. First, make sure it is a thought provoking topic, written in proper english that poses some sort of question. People on mylot love to give their opinion. So ask for it. Have friends. Friends at mylot are important. They will respond to your discussions. Be sure it is in the right topic. Don't post a health related question in religion. I can't stress this part enough: Proper written english. That means sentance structure, well thought ideas and proper punctuation. You'll make more money for it too. Well, that should get you started. Good luck,

Prash, I went back and looked at your discussions to get a better idea of what you are talking about. And some of the topics that you may find interesting, are not really that interesting. And as a fellow mylotter, I too would pass them up. Not many people will engage in a debate over who is better, Avril or Briteny. Not many people here care about wrestling either. And a few of your questions only require a one word answer. Again, something I personally would skip. Furthermore, your questions are one liners. If you read through mylot, many people won't give one liners a second chance because they think you are spamming the boards. I am not saying that you are. But there are many posters here that will just post one line questions just to earn their cent. And move on. It gives the impression that you didn't put a lot of thought into your topic and that you won't be back. That you are just out for the buck. Now, I'm not saying you are doing this. I'm just telling you how it appears. Try posting something that appeals to the general public. Good interests include relationships, life, religion and money. It is true that some good discussions will go unnoticed. As mylot grows, multiple discussions are being generated simultaneously. And can some times get burried. that's why it is good to have friends. Because they will help keep the discussion alive.

well i appreciate your view...and yes some of my discussions cud be good to be ..but not to others...but your point that one liners are not affective...i dont agee with u..you write what is required...makes the job easier for the person who read ...i can write long ones...but unnecessary making it long....i somehow dont find it appealing...

You need to comment frequently and update your discussion every now and then in order to bump up your post on top (check with TOS whether this is allowed or not). If you do so, your discussion will suregly get lots of posts.
