All ten articles were submitted to EzineArticles over a span of 2 weeks and one of them was in the Most Viewed EzineArticles category. It got around 2500 views since September.
Conversion rate was about 9% with the resource box.
However, I've done everything I could to see if I can reproduce this result but failed after 10 more articles. I didn't fail miserably but not near enough.
I've looked at the keywords I've optimized for, the resource box and the summary of the article. I even wrote an article with a similar topic just reworded differently.
I've asked a few close friends to look at the article as well. The only conclusion we came to was the article title. The only difference was the article title which was intriguing and benefited the reader.
I'm going to spend much more time on creating article titles. It seems to worth the time based on the results. Anyone have similar results they'd like to share?
