Most paying sites and blogs require us to get page views apart from the ratings/ votes and other stuffs. However well I fare in writing and rating, my earning drops considerably due to PVs. Promoting articles gets boring but that's the only way to increase our earnings in many websites. So, how do you promote your articles/ blogs? How to increase PVs?

Hi mimpi! I write on few sites. However, I least try to promote my article/poem. At the most, I send the links to some friends, who I think would read my article/poem. I just do not have time to promote my articles. I do not bother much about earnings, when any article/poem gets published on any site, it gives me great amount of satisfaction rather than earnings. Have a great day! Deepak

Promotion is heck of a thing and i just cannot do it as well. I know earning doesn't matter but recently I am working on it just to pay off for my NING.

I know it Mimpi that how serious you are in promoting your stuff and how determined you are to keep the NING site going on. Keep it up. My best wishes are with you.

I gave up on my blog because I got tired of the hard work required in order to increase page views! I found that if I was constantly on top of it, registering my sites on catalogues, linking to other sites like Ezine as an example etc the views would be good but if I let it go for a couple of days it would all start to drop again. It was just too darn hard...

Exactly! It's too much for me to promote and its something I could never do. And I guess, there is no short cut to increasing PVs also.

Exactly coffeebreak! Promoting is really something I don't find easy to handle.

I have not done much of writing and promoting to really answer the question out of experience. But i did do some research of this for an assignment, and can share qith you the little i learnt. Without any doubt it does involve networking, but i will not say much on that. These help is what i've learnt. Using the tag words, identifying keywords and having the correct density of them through out the artices, so that they show up during searches. Using cross references or links of other articles within 1 article, so that it draws some traffic towards the other pages I also understand that there are some free sites like ezine and others which allow you write there and give the links of other websites. Interactivity and updation helps, wherein people come back to read more Another thing which i may suggest is write an article on how you have been able to achieve whatever you have in terms of page views and networking. We sometimes feel that we have a lot to learn, but there are others who learn from us. This itself helps in increasing the pv's. Hope these points helped.

A lot of work and boring stuffs. Promoting was never something I enjoyed. I think, if we could afford paying for promoting - it would reduce the hassle and could concentrate more on my actual writing. Networking, digging, stumbling, delicious...all require great deal of time , patience and inclination, I have neither of which! So, struggling with PVs.

I guess u need the services of an online promotion manager. You keep the articles flowing, and promotion and page views gets taken care off.

good question other than posting your links anywhere and everywhere. mylot doesn't have an option to share what we share here on facebook and twitter. I use both of those with my blog posts as well as with things I write or post on several other sites and that seems to really be helping. Marsha
