Hi there warriors.

I'd like to share with fellow people here how to get more EZA views and make sure that your articles enter the most "VIEWED SECTION" easily. Once your article entered that section,it'll get more exposure and also backlinks.

Here's my proof:



3 of my articles entered the "most viewed" section in a particular category easily by using this strategy.

Here's another category that I managed to get top ranking.



So how I did that?
Here's a little secret of mine.
The most important part that you must consider before you submit your articles is the "category".You must choose a category that's easy to get ranked in the "most viewed" section.

Let me show you how to do that.

Step 1:
Let's say you've an article on "how to write good sales letter". Think of related categories that's related to your topic.
Some of the suitable categories to submit your article are:
"advertising","marketing direct", "sales","copywriting".(Feel FREE to think of other categories)





Step 2:
Go to the "most viewed section" of the chosen categories and click on the #15 article.In order to make sure that our articles enter the "most viewed" section, we should win over the #15 article in term of views. I'm going to choose "advertising" and "marketing-direct" to show you how to do it.

The #15 article in the advertising category has 181 views




The #15 article in the marketing-direct category has only 96 views




So compared with the advertising category, marketing direct category is easier to get ranked.Do the research for all the related categories that we've identified above ("advertising","marketing direct", "sales","copywriting")
.Once you're done with your research, choose a category with the lowest number of views for the #15 article

Step 3:
The next thing that you've to do is to try to drive traffic to your articles so that it get more views than the #15 article.

With this strategy, your articles will get:

more views=more backlinks=more clickthrus=more $$$$

Good luck in trying!!

    Interesting and thanks, but step 3 is kind of a contradiction. How to get more views, get more views.

    Hi ebizman87,

    This is a great tip. Sometimes we tend to ingore the baics. Thanks for reminding this.

    I would like to add something here. The article that enters the "most viewed articles" section appears on all pages under that category. This means if that category has 1000 articles your article title appears on all 1000 pages with BACK LINKS.

    If you include your main keyword in the title, this will further force your article on first page of google for that keyword. Don't believe me?

    Go right now and check any article in the most viewe in 90 days section. Pick any one article keyword from there and type it in google search box. You'll most probably see it ranking on the first page.

    Good luck to all......

      Thanks for adding.I didn't even realize it.However if you used yahoo's site explorer to check the backlinks,it'll show zero and sometimes there will be no other ezinearticles linking our main article. Our aim is to get maximum exposure to the articles, so entering the "most viewed" section is probably the best.

      ThanxXx Shrinivas

        The #15 article in the advertising category has 181 views

        Are these 181 just User views from around the internet?, or are they from Eza logged in members?

      Well, clearly you can't be totally wrong, like putting an IM article in the fitness category, but once you know what category you are going for, you should tailor your article to be a better match.

    Hi,

    However if you used yahoo's site explorer to check the backlinks,it'll show zero and sometimes there will be no other ezinearticles linking our main article.
    There are thousands of articles pointing to your article from the same category if it lands in the "most viewed in 90 days" section.

    Do this to find out.

    1) Goto Yahoo.com
    2) Type the normal link:url command (in this case url of the article at EZA, without http://)
    3) Click on Web Search
    4) Yahoo! will redirect you to Yahoo! Site explorer and directly show you Inlinks. There are thousands pointing to your article from EZA from the same category.

    I just now checkd one article from a category under the "most viewed in 90 days" section and it's got more than 5000 inbound links. For some reason the Yahoo! site explorer is not directly showing inlnks. But it's working with articles at goarticles.com
    under "Most requested articles"

    Instead of checking your backlinks at Yahoo! site explorer check them at normal Yahoo! homepage.

      Fantastic info - thanks I did this with the top viewed article in a niche I'm in and only 9 results came back. This article has 13,000+ views since late May, I'm amazed that it has such a little amount of backlinks. Hopefully I can in time match those view figures though

    I would like to add one more thing here. How do you get your article in the "most viewed in 90 days" section. so that you get backlinks from all other articles in that category.

    As per the research by OP the last article in advertising category had only 181 views. You can beat this easily using this.

    1) Write the article
    2) Submit it to EZA
    3) Wait till it gets approved
    4) Now send this article link to your list
    5) A list of 1000 subscribers can easily get your article in " "most viewed in 90 days" section in less than 24 hours.

    6) What if you don't have a list?
    7) Post it on twitter and start collecting followers.
    8) In a very short time you'll see your article in "most viewed in 90 days" section
    9) The twitter idea probably won't work in al niches. But would like someone to experiment and post here.

    Thanks and good luck to everyone.......

      Just to add - your backlinks will only be there for the duration of 90 days. Once the 90 days are over, your backlinks will also disappear out of sight and never to be seem again.

      EZA has a setup so whenever you get an article approved it automatically posts to your twitter account. I got a ton of followers last couple weeks from writing a lot of articles. If you dont have that set up you're missing out

    The next thing that you've to do is to try to drive traffic to your articles so that it get more views than the #15 article.
    keep in mind that the number of views listed is the total number of views and not the number of views for the last 90 days. So even when the number is quite high, but the article a few years old, it should be possible to beat it.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[1102513].message }}
    • Profile picture of the author steveniam
      If the article is a few years old, it would not be in the Most Viewed Articles (90 days) .

      If you want to use a little bit of blackhat, you can be in the Most Viewed Articles easily and it will cost you just a few bucks.

      From past experiences if you articles are in the Most Viewed Articles it does not mean that there will be a flood of clickthroughs. It will still depend on your contents and your resource box.

    That is very true.

    Important-

    Some people are saying that this is a nice SEO tip, but..

    landing your article in "most viewed in 90 days" section doesn't guarantee that it will rank on first page of google. The above mentioned tip only takes your article in most viewed section, this does not mean that it will rank hight at google. This is because all the backlinks are from EZA itself which google may not consider as valid backlinks.

    Actually the other way round is true. The articles in the "most viewed in 90 days section" are origially ranking high at google (for a number of reasons) and because of the organic traffic, their page views have increased dramatically to push them in the "most viewed in 90 days section".

    However it would be a very interesting experiment to try this and see whether the article ranks high or not after it ends up in the "most viewed in 90 days section" (due to backlinks) using the above mentioned strategy.

        It's against the rules. But if you go it stealthly you should not have any problem. I do notice that some of them are using it and as a experiment I make a report to EZA but they never take any action and I only receive a standard reply.

        As with anything on the internet if you want to do a bit of blackhat make sure it is not too obvious.

      1) lol at the so-called "proof" (green and red squares...?)

      2) It's not just having the most views which counts. Even if your article is the most viewed article on the whole site, you're not going to get any traffic unless your resource box is awesome. Ideally, you should have a bit about yourself, then a call to action and a link to your website. Don't just send them to a sales page - treat it like Twitter, in the sense that you should be giving them more free stuff (maybe an opt-in page?). I use this strategy, and it works amazingly.

      3) For every article you write, you should do at LEAST 10 minutes keyword research before you write it. Concentrate on the long tail keywords (3-4 words). This way, you'll get highly ranked in organic search, as I can guarantee that most of your competitors aren't doing this. All of the "100 views a month" long tail keywords add up pretty fast

      - James.

        Right on ebizman87!
        a variation of this is going into the strategy guide that I'm working on. getting into the 'most viewed' category means backlinks from all the other articles in that category. Internal backlinks, mind you, but still, they add value.

        I do it slightly differently but same strategy.

        It all depends on how the folks are going to do do it. I suggested a way to dominate a certain niche at EZA but certainly I didn't suggest any WAY to drive traffic that'll break EZA's TOS.I didn't even ask them to do so.

        Some of the basic traffic tips for EZA articles are:

        1)social bookmarking
        2)using other article directories to build backlinks for EZA articles
        3)TWITTER
        4)Answering questions at Yahoo Answers with EZA articles as reference
        5)RSS feed
        6)Blog Commenting

        Those basic things can drive huge amount of traffic the legal WAY!! You don't have to break any rules of EZA and still dominate the niches. There're some marketers who suggest others to buy traffic or drive traffic using dirty tactics, but certainly NOT me. This thread was created to help people here to dominate niches at EZA and that's all.

    I've tried this on one of the other article sites, and it works darn well.

    EZA is not like any other site . They will bust you in a heart beat .

    The best way to dominate is with quality, seo, and relevance.

    Wonder what would happen if we dedicated as much time on our own sites as we spend trying to figure out a way to dominate ... well you pick a site ?
