My Article was in the Hot Content!

I can't believe it. I published an article on Nine Legitimate Writing Sites Which Pay on Triond recently. Yesterday I noticed that the number of pageviews rose by more than 6000. I'm so happy because it has increased my revenue for the month. The best part is that it made to the Hot Content list and my name is in the Hot Users list. This is my first time! However, sad to say, my happiness is rather short-lived because it is no longer there in the Hot Content today. I'm sure there are some Triond writers here on myLot. Has any of your articles made it to the Hot Content list? What topic did you write about? I still do not know where the traffic came from. Anyone knows how to find this out?

Congrats :) Well, you already know me on Triond, so I'm not going to talk about how well or how badly I'm doing *cough* Regarding checking where your traffic comes from, you can use a backlink checker to search for backlinks to your article, to see a list of sites that link to your article. Some of the backlink checker sites also tell you how "important" a site that has linked to you is, so while you may not be able to get the exact figures of how much traffic a site is getting you, you should still be able to get a rough gauge.

Yes! I know you from Triond. Ok, so how do I do this backlinking thing. I'm really no computer expert. You need to give me specific instructions. Is there a website I should go to?

Really! 18 links to my articles. Thanks iakulchen for going to such lengths to find that out for me. I never knew how to find that out. I will try those websites out and test with my other articles which sometimes have sudden increased pageviews. You really helped a lot!

Congratulations, Sydney! I have never had my articles appear in Hot Content, but have had my name appear in Hot Users and that was at the beginning when I was submitting at least one article a day. Like I said about Triond earlier, you really have to be consistently publishing in order to make money and be seen. I don't believe there is a way of tracking where the viewers came from. If you are on Facebook, you can connect Triond to that and your articles will appear at the bottom of your profile page so you could have gotten hits that way. If you post your articles here on myLot, like I do, for the sake of discussion of course, you get hits that way. And I also use my articles in my signature line of my email. If you have your own website, like I believe you do, then posting the links on there will get you hits. The other way is the use of tags. They are so important. When someone does a search for racoons, for example, my story about "Racoons in the Attic" may come out on top depending on the search engine. I can't believe you got more than 6,000 hits. That is unbelievable. Perhaps you have a lot of friends... and I don't. Keep up the great work.

How do I bring the articles up to the newsfeed on Facebook As far as posting on here, I don`t just post the link but I also start a discussion regarding my article with the link to the article for people to refer to. This is the way others do it with news stories, etc. I feel this is no different.

No I don't. I have tried it once in Associated Content and it never pass the closing part . The person I am contract to work with is an Financial Advisor she write for a Daily Newspaper here in JA. She has asked me to find out the legitimate sites that employed persons to write and actually pay. I have signed on numerous social network and don't find them as enticing as MYLOT so haven't decide to return. So you have made my search much easier with your article.

That's great that I have made your job a little lighter. I just want you to take note that there are some people who do not think that all of the sites I wrote were actually legitimate, although I know many have been paid from these sites. Some even say one of them in particular is a scam. I hope you still continue to do your research before submitting your work. I'm highlighting this to you so that you can weigh it for yourself.

Hey! I reccently got hot content as well, which is kinda really surprising... I'm sorta new at triond so I'm still figuring out things work there, how exactly do they choose the hot content list? Do they frequently pick the newer users so that they get seen more? Anyways I've seen your articles on triond and it's great! Have you got any advice for triond? I've only got one article so far haha

YOu have only one article and it managed to get on the Hot Content list? I think you should be giving tips and advice at Triond! What's your name at Triond? Was it the one on French kissing? I have been writing for a few months and this is the first time my article ever appeared in the Hot Content. Well, it's not there anymore.

Oops! That is not you. I saw your article on the top of the Hot Content and have added you as a friend at Triond. You're doing well. I'm off to read your article, maybe I can get some tips from there. Keep on writing and you will earn loads from Triond that way. How much are you earning for that article already?

Wow!!! Congratulations!!! Even if it's not in the hot content anymore, it's likely to keep on earning for you through and through! Yes, there are some triond contributors here. I submitted an article there too, and it has been earning very, very modestly, no waves, just the tiniest ripple. I don't know where the traffic comes from either. Have a lovely day!

Hi NonaSaile, thank you. Yup! It's probably going to earn me every day. Isn't that great about Triond? Add me on Triond. My name there is the same here - Sydney Hazelton. My name is still in the Hot User. Must add me quick before that too disappears! Hopefully someone answers about the traffic thingy too.

Hi mago, Thank you. I have been wondering when the time would come for my articles to appear there. It came sooner than expected. Or shall I say, it came when I did not expect it. I'm sure yours will be there one of these days. Thank you for adding me as a friend at Triond. I will definitely read your article soon.

Congratulations!!! And very well deserved! I found that article to be particularly helpful! Also, I just logged on to Triond and saw that you're still on the Hot Content list! So if you dropped off for a day or two, then you're back on! I only submit photos to Triond, so I've never made the Hot Content list (as I've only seen writing on that list... never any photos.) But I have had my photos featured on the front page of Picable.com several times, and I'm currently on the list of Popular Photographers on Picable as well!

Thank you! Yup! I saw that it went back up to the Hot Content list soon after I started the discussion. I'm still happy although the pageviews are slowly dwindling again. But I think I can still make $15 this month. That one article has generated more than $7 for me. It really feels good. You have taken very nice photos. Maybe you should try to sell them online. Triond may not compensate you enough for pics. Great to know that you're one of the Hot Photographers at picable! Congrats to you too!

I'm new at triond too you know, and my articles have been rejected twice because the grammar things... lol, well what could I say, english not my first language, at least I can try to improve it by sending articles to triond, congrats to you :)

I don't believe it. The way you write here doesn't seem like you have much problems with grammar. Anyway, you can add me as a friend at Triond and we can check each other's stuff. Keep trying! Do a spell and grammar checker before you submit your article to them. Maybe that might help keep some of the mistakes at bay.

Congrats! I write for Triond but have never come close to the Hot content. My articles haven't done well on there at all. I have something submitted to them right now and it's the first thing in almost two months. I hope you keep doing good with them.

Thank you, sunnflr. I have not written for Triond for a few weeks now. I wanted to concentrate on writing reviews for Review Stream, so far so good. This is the first time this has ever happened to me. And I'm obviously elated. Btw, I saw my article back in Hot Content. Seems like it goes up and down. Thanks for responding and Keep writing!

Congratulations, I have never been featured in the Hot content list. You must have written a very good article. Keep posting. I didn't visit it for quite a number of days, I'll visit it now. Congrats again. All the best.

Thanks, Jen! I never knew it would end up there. It has been there for a week or two before this happens. So it can happen to yours too. If someone picks up your article or link it from their website, you get the traffic. It's great! I have not written much this month either. Busy writing reviews for Review Stream. So far so good!
