As a new contributor on Associated Content, it may be difficult to increase your page views. There are several obvious ways, such as promoting your content on sites such as Facebook and Twitter. However, there are a few other ways to promote yourself and get your content read on Associated Content that contributors may not think of right away. Here are a few methods I have tried with some success. Granted, these will not get you millions of page views immediately, but they will help to get your name and your content in front of people, which will ultimately lead to more page views!
This is a relatively common way to promote content, but it is also a resource I felt was worth mentioning. Try posting links to your Associated Content material on social bookmarking sites such as DIGG, StumbleUpon, or KarmaLynx. This will help to increase your page views and get your name out there. Another unique thing about KarmaLynx is that you can also make money by posting links on that website if you have an advertising account with Google. In other words, you can increase your page views and earn ad revenue just by posting your Associated Content links on Karmalynx!
One way that will help to get your content read is to post in the community forum here on Associated Content. I believe there is a section that you can post links to your content in the forum, but you could also try simply responding to other posts. The more your name appears around the website, the more opportunities people have to click on your name and read your content. This, obviously, is an easy way to increase page views!
This involves the same logic as the idea above: The more your name appears around the site, the more people will click on your content. If you read an interesting article, tell the author that they did a good job! This will help you to make friends on Associated Content, let other contributors know that their work is appreciated, and help more people read your name!
All of these things will help you to enjoy Associated Content more fully and gain page views at the same time. Also, if you are known around the site as a friendly person, people will be more open to reading your content and more interested in what you have to say.
Becoming a Fan
On Associated Content, you can become a fan of someone’s work. Obviously only do this if you like their work, but this could be a way to help get people to look at your articles as well. If someone becomes my fan, I tend to read their work as well. I only become a fan of work that I like, so don’t take advantage of this system, but it does have some advantages.
If you are someone’s fan, they have easy access to your work. Also, other contributors who view their profile have yet another opportunity to see your name and read your work.
Write Follow-up Articles
Writing follow-up articles can be done in a variety of ways. Here are a few suggestions:
When you write an article, consider doing segments. For example, if you choose a topic that you have a lot to say about, divide it into three main subject areas. The first article you publish on Associated Content would be Segment 1. Then write Segments 2 and 3 and include a link to the other segments.
If you have previously written an article where the something about the subject has changed or it requires an update, write the update! Again, link the articles so that readers can easily access both the original article and the updated version.
The final way to write a follow-up article for Associated Content is to change your subject somewhat and generate a new article from that. For example, if you had previously written an article on having a great hair day and you mentioned a particular product in the article, write a new article about the product, about similar products, reviewing that product, etc. Again, include links to your other similar articles.
These are just a few of the many ways you can increase page views on Associated Content. As stated earlier, these are just ideas to get you going. Please use these ideas responsibly and ethically.
Play around and find what works best for you. Remember, though, that the more your name is in front of people, the more opportunities they have to click on it and read your content. Therefore, the more times your name appears on the web, the more page views and more income you can earn!
