Writers with 10 million page views

Yesterday while researching for an article on 10 million page views, I came across one writer in Associated content with more than ten million page views. Many others are just a few thousand page views short of the ten million page views mark. After I published the article, someone remarked that there were more writers with more than 10 million page views. He gave the name of one writer in Associated Content with 13 million page views. Do you think you can achieve the feat of 10 million page views? How long do you think you need before you even reach the first million page views? How many articles do you think you need to reach the first million page views?

HAHAHA. Since I have a little less than 500,000 page views with over 1,000 articles, I would have to say I would reach a million page views with 2000 articles(another 1,000 articles) in about 3 years. LOL I don't know if I will even be writing in three years. I do so hope I can achieve the million page views in under three years. LOL

Well there's a depressing thought! Personally, I hope I won't be still struggling for (or caring)about page views in three years!

I hope to still be writing in three years, but I hope I do not need to worry about page views. I think it is a great hobby especially for me when I need to blow off steam. LOL I don't know if I will ever reach a million page views, but I would like to try. If I could take the time to write about celebrity info and happenings my page views could sky rocket. LOL

Hi Mommaj, you know what is the problem with most of your articles? Those articles do not have onpage seo value, that is why they do not generate long term page views. We have suggested that you rewrite those articles with good keywords for the sake of getting traffic from search engines. Too bad you flush our advice down the toilet bowl. I think Canellita and Art will have 2 million page views once they hit the 1000 articles.

First, who put a mature content tag on this discussion? See what happens when you forget to add your own? I think it depends on what your articles are about. We know people are getting thousands of page views regularly if they are being paid so those people could do it with 1000 or so articles. The rest of us might need 1 million, lol!

LOL. Let's hope not. Only scheng would put a mature tag on this topic. Anyone that can read is mature!

Hi Canellita, I wanted to add the tags: million page views. However, the Internet connection broke off. I know it is the stupid hungry ghost from the cave of Mommaj that causes the problem. I have put the link to the article in the first response. If you take a look, you will see that one writer in Ezinearticles is closing on the 10 million page views. Since Ezinearticles do not pay, and he has more than 20,000 articles, all written by himself. I am really scratching my head, trying to understand the logic. Mommaj, please spank the stupid ghost for adding the mature content.

I guess they put the mature label automatically on Scheng since her discussion about writing an article on how to increase sperm count, which they must consider a taboo subject. Now all her articles will be adult-only. Maybe she should make her blogs that way, and she could charge people by the hour to read them. LOL There is a big market for that sort of thing. I think with the page views it comes down to motivation. If you make enough money, you will figure out a way to get 10 million page views. That doesn't mean your writing will be any good, however. Or that you will enjoy writing it. At that point, it becomes machine like, or so I imagine. Am I wrong??

Hi Yugasini, I cannot imagine getting 10 million page views either. Actually you can write quite well. The problem is getting visitors. You can see from Wikinut that many writers are even worse than you. They just have the courage to post and mingle around with other writers. I think you can get them to teach you about writing. I can see that some are young students from India. Actually there is one website set up by a few Indian experts, and paid in Indian rupee. The webmasters really know what they are doing. They accept English and non-English articles. You can search for India writing websites. Just start writing and you will feel very happy to have people reading and commenting on your articles.

Hi Yugasini, I have replied to your private message in mylot. I dont know whether you have received it. Many free PLR articles are available for instant downloading. The problem is in the rewriting of the PLR articles. It is easy to write articles, save in MS Word, and then copy and paste the whole thing in writing site.

Gosh, it's going to take me several years to reach that! I've been actively writing on AC for about a year now and only just reached over 12,000 pageviews. Of course, I do tend to write more fiction which is not as searched for. I could see sports writers and writers who focus on one expertise receiving a ton of pageviews.

Hi Tinkerick, they took a few years to reach 10 million page views as well. Only one of them focus on sports, the rest wrote about generally everything. The only other common thing is that they write a few thousand articles. I think you cannot match their average writing speed. If you can write at least 5 articles per day, I think you would have reached the first million page views already.

I agree. Now if only I had that much to say! I still am confounded by those who DO post several articles a day. How do they find material to write about?

I completely understand. What I don't get is where they go after they've addressed all those initial questions. Especially people who write on the same topic for years. There's only so much updated information every year, what can they possibly scrounge up for original material?

You got me curious as to how much pageviews I have received for my articles in Triond. I checked and have 250,000 pageviews. A quarter million. That's not too bad, I think. Just wondering when I will touch 1 million or 10 million pageviews. Haiz... I will not bother about this for now! Aiming for my 1000 articles first...

haha Sydney, the way you say it is so funny. "Just wondering when I will touch 1 million or 10 million pageviews." I think you can touch the 1 million page views in 2 years time. As for the 10 million page views, probably by the time you reach 80 years old. Since tortoise has a very long life, you can wait patiently for the page views to add up. I have slightly more than 330 articles now. I will probably take a break from Triond and build up the content to my blogs first. Hope you can catch up! Just too bad you decide to challenge the wrong person! I have written practically continuously for the past year. I doubt I can slow down the pace of writing.

haha... you know scheng, i love to challenge someone who can motivate me. And you do make me get off my a$$ and write. But you got lots of advantage. you are not working, scheng. Any children to look after? Glad to hear you are taking a break. I must work harder. I only have 150 articles now, averaging 2-3 per day, compared to your 10 articles per day. Haiz... But I'll get there 80 years old or not!

They must of been there before the age of time. Trust me, they must of joined ever since Associated Content was formed. To be honest, I don't think you can achieve that many page views anymore. After about 10 years of writing, wouldn't you think all the answers are taken all ready?

Hi Funorb12, two of them joined Associated Content for a long time, about four years. However, there is one writer who joined two years ago, and reaching the ten million page views mark. His speciality is writing about sports. http://writinghood.com/writing/is-10-million-page-views-possible/ It is a pity that some writing sites do not display the number of page views. I would like to know the total page views from my articles in Helium. I think it is quite substantial. When I uploaded the same set of articles to Associated Content for display, I could get to Clout 8 in less than a year. Just too bad that Associated Content changes the policy and take away the performance bonus for international writers. I would have reached Clout 9 already.

Page views are very important when it comes to your articles. I haven't tried writing articles and posting it in the Internet. All I know is I am just enjoying myself here at MyLot.

Hi Mark, many of us enjoy our time in mylot. Actually the only real difference between mylot and article writing is the payment term. You get paid immediately for participating in mylot. In article writing, the payment always come later. As long as someone continues to read your articles, you will get paid. That is the most attractive part of article writing. In term of writing, there is hardly any difference in the level of difficulty. If you take a look at Triond and Xomba, you will notice that many people write as if they are starting a discussion.

I am not surprised that someone writing about sports or celebrities can get those page views. I have seen it over on Gather since the new writing program started. I am one of the slowest writers on Gather, and last month I got 15,000 page views on 20 articles. However, my audience on Associated Content is very poor. I have not even gotten to 70,000 page views in all the time I have been there. At Gather, the top earner in the SocialWrite program exceeded (!) 1 million page views in a single month. These folks are cranking out articles on celebrities and their every move. I just saw an article posted on Jennifer Aniston getting a puppy. Is this news? Yet people are reading it. Will I ever reach 1 million page views? Not on AC, although I wonder if I stopped writing completely and just spent all day on Twitter and other social networking sites what the results might be??

Hi Canellita, that is a very good rate for an article ranking 10/43. I think if you can push it to 2/43, you can earn even more. Did you check the keyword for legal content before you write to it? Certain keywords are very high paying keywords, such as Chicago Personal Injury Attorney. I think you can suggest a title How to find Chicago Personal Injury Attorney. If you want to write about divorce attorney, that will not earn much for you. Same thing filing tax returns or whatever.

The reason I am doing well at Gather is their special program (Gather SocialWrite). We get paid cash, not points, per page views, starting at 250 page views and working our way up. I don't usually write about Celebrities. My category is Life & Style, and the best articles that have worked for me are those about gardening. On Helium, my best selling articles every month are on how to work for a difficult boss and how to meet people when traveling alone. Usually the travel articles don't do well, nor do the art articles, but sometimes they sell for $5 to outside folks. I have sold some art and museum articles this way. If I did not have the Featured articles on travel and local (Chicago) for AC, I wouldn't make any money over there! Helium works a lot better for me. Canelitta is getting entrepreneurial on us, trying to make money from the MyLot jokes. She is the smartest of all!

Hi Art, Canellita is getting smarter and smarter. She knows how to make money out of poking fun at us! It is good that you have different websites and different ways of earning from articles. My best article in Helium is on sales. I think those are the categories that will forever popular. I wonder when Mommaj can write enough to join the Socialwrite program. It seems that she is getting enough points to exchange for ghosts from the King of Hell. She sells the ghosts in Ebay and earn enough money to expand her cave.

Mylot does not pay for page views. No point trying to get page views here. Far better to concentrate on the daily earnings for posting

Scheng, MommaJ, AnythingArt and Canelita, this is one hell of a discussion, good i popped in and could read about your experience sharing post about writing, really trying so mich to grab my hands on writing because i love it and know am a good one just waiting to improve so much. Trying to decide the sites to start with because i really need to make up to $600 per month from writing to survive me and my family. I don't write for any site right now, still trying to put much on my blog, just to master the art of writing.

Hi Shynepapin, my advice is to define your working strategy first. Some writers are just writers. They write for page views and upfront payment. Some writers are in fact article marketers. These are the ones submitting articles to free article directories, with links to their sales pitch. The sales pitch is written for the sake of generating sales. I do not know which one you have in mind. If you want to learn about writing, and the commercial value of articles, you can join Helium. Most of us are members of Helium. Helium has a referral scheme. If you join under one of us, your referral can earn 10% of your income. If you are into article marketing, check out the various discussion threads on forums dot digitalpoint dot com. You can see that many marketers are so good at choosing products and writing articles for product promotion.
