2) Invite publishers to publish your article. Here's the trick: Send a short email to ezine publishers with your article's 'Ezine Publisher' link on Ezine Articles. The 'Ezine Publisher' link can be found on all your articles on the top right hand side. Getting the clicks will increase your page views for this link and subsequently get your article into the "Most Published EzineArticles in the __________ Category" list. This list appears at the bottom of every article, which will bring you lots of traffic.
3) Fill out your bio box. This is different from the resource box that appears at the footer of your articles. I'm talking about the bio that appears at your main page at http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Your_Name. From my own stats, 2 out of 10 visitors will read the full biography on Ezine Articles, so this is your chance to shine!
4) Create the Ezine Articles widget and add it to your blog or website. This increases your article views, which again, subsequently gets your article this time into the "Most Viewed EzineArticles in the __________ Category" list. The result: More traffic again.
5) Subscribe to your competitor's articles by email or sign up to their RSS feed. You can see what new niches they are targeting or if they have made any changes to their resource box. It's just like signing up to a blog using an RSS feed to get instant alerts.
