    I try to write 2-3 on a regular day, but when I'm really into the going, I can write 5-10.

      It is hard to write every day, I am able to write 15 a day in addition to other activities.

      The most I have ever managed is 50. Of course, quality is better than quantity. I suggest taking a look at rich peck's ecourse for a great way to write articles.

        I suppose it depends on whether or not I have a good grasp of knowledge on the subject and how long the articles need to be.

        Max is 50 to 75 a day for short ones, 30 for longer ones. But that really does take a lot of effort.

        It's getting into that zone that is difficult, at least for me. Once I'm there and motivated, I can really turn out a few pretty quickly.

        Motivation is probably the key thing, plus the results you get. It's a lot easier to pour a lot of effort in when you know it's going to pay off well. When all you hear is crickets, it's a whole other story.

          Gosh! I feel slack now! I usually only write 2-5 a week! I have a rutine of writing one (~600-700 words long) then I post it to two sites. The next day I post it to more sites or start the next article and then I submit the next one the next day. That's it.

          My niches are super specific in a way though, so I have less about which to write and stay current enough for publishers to want to use my articles. I do have a good publication rate (~60% for number of artciles published versus articles written) and a large number of publishers using my articles (~3 times the number of artciles being published).

          At least I think that's pretty good. After looking at these figures above, perhaps I am falling way short of the goals I should be setting for myself!

          Any thoughts?

          Thanks,
          Will

            If you treat writing articles with the same discipline of a full time job, you can write a decent number every day. It's all about the mindset - if you consider it a chore, it'll feel like one. If you consider it a necessary element in your online marketing, it'll become a whole lot more bearable.

              It varies so much..

              it really is niche dependant and what knowledge I have of the niche...

              Sometimes plenty, sometimes 3 or 4.. but I ensure they are powerful and worth the time I put into them... I have blogs to maintain and other tasks.. so it isn't all day task anyhow..

              • To Tirmizi and everyone else..With the high amount of articles that you guys are writing everyday do you submit that one identical article to multiple sites or do you stick to submitting one article per website, or just as many of all the same articles to multiple websites..are there any pros/cons to either strategy that you have seen?

                I can only pull off 3-5 articles a week nowadays, but use to do 3-5 a day.

                  Well, i don't have a fixed number of daily articles.
                  On some days I write 4-5 short articles in a day.
                  Other days, just one (but a good 500 words), and
                  often none at all.

                  I concentrate my articles submissions to EZA only.
                  I submit to other directories if I want to build links
                  to my site.

                    I work on a schedule and write articles every other day! Keeps the content fresh and my brain from getting over loaded.

                    During those days I usually write about 20...depending on the subject, work load and length.

                      I can usually do about 10 a day, but I don't do this every day.

                      It depends on the subject - sometimes if I am really interested it takes me longer 'cause I spend too much time reading and learning! But then it pays off because I can take that knowledge and leverage it into more articles/websites/reports on the subject.

                  Well Phil, I usually don't write that many articles these days ... have got tooo much other stuff going on .... on odd days I write around 2 to 3 articles however as you must have gotten an idea from my posts , can't keep my fingers shut ...

                  When start writing about something .. have initial idea that it will be around 250 to 300 words and by the time i'm done with it , it usually is around 550 to 600 words or more ...


                  and about submission ... it depends .... on the objective of your submission , if you want traffic then ezine is best in the business .. howver if you are looking for backlinks and other benefits ... then it would be better if you submit to other high pr websites too ....

                  Hope this answers your question .. Phil

                      I actually love writing the articles! I never take it as a chore, but perhaps I am slower? As mentioned above, the length and time put in as well as the potential number of articles is somewhat niche dependent, too. I probably do need to increase the number of articles I write, but it also sound like my articles are much longer than those mentioned here (500 words being the shortest one, 1200 being the largest I think.) I am a Ph.D. candidate, after all - I write stuff!

                      That being said, can anyone suggest a straitegy for shortening a long article, perhaps making it two articles, or a guideline that will help keep me from putting too much time into article generatio if I do not need to be so lengthy in my content presentation?

                      Thanks everyone! This thread is extremely helpful!
                      Cheers!

                        Hi Will!

                        I've found it helpful to break a long article like that into 3 distinct parts, and then devote one article to each part. If there is a subtopic in there that is worth more than a paragraph, then it could probably be pushed to a full length article if there is enough info.

                        Hope that helps!

                          Probably not enough, but I write only if I believe I can add something meaningful and interesting and not just for the sake of writing, which may not be the best marketing strategy, but on the other hand it guarantees good quality, so perhaps this is not the worst strategy, either. And I don't write those 350 word articles, but much longer, sometimes over 1000 words and most of the time over 500. And that again is a good idea, in my opinion, because I am sure the readers tend to appreciate informative articles more.

                            Appreciate that, but I'd love to add this: LSi is going to be the name of the game a year from now!

                            I've been online so long that I've actually developed a knack of seeing whats coming and where are we headed!

                            And as far as I think, sooner or later the length of the articles won't really matter!

                            What will of course matter is these things

                            1. Focus
                            2. Flow
                            3. Fast

                            As they say: A hint to the clever is enough!

                          hanks CS. That was the type of suggestion for which I was looking. Some of my niches do not allow for separating the basic articles, but the trick there is tht I have more than one niche on whch Iam focusing and even the more narrow one, I m able to take a few spins on the subject and write longer related articles, thus can apply your technique andsee if I can increase my article submissions without increasing my work load and decreasing the quality of my articles.

                          Cheers!

                                  Too hot..? Trade ya.. I just spent 3 hours this morning shoveling the driveway and as always the plow went bye as soon as I was done and it filled the bottom of the driveway again...

                                  It's Christmas eve, the kids are in bed Santa came and I let him in to fill under the tree and now I'm going to bed. 6:00am comes early and it looks like I'll have to shovel again.

                                  Oh cool, I just noticed Santa brought the kids RockBand "Yeah"!

                                  As for articles... I always outsource to multiple writers and always looking for more as profits from articles continue. I always track my article profits separate so I know how much I can allot to article writing each month. I use different sources to get new and fresh perspectives and take advantage of different writing styles. It keeps things interesting for the readers...

                              I don't write any articles t all. I outsource when I need to, and use my systems to give me a
                              fresh and unique article anytime I need any. My systems post to about 400 blogs once or
                              twice a week, so I'm slowly building a nice little empire that gives me instant backlinks anytime
                              a website, squidoo etc spidered super fast. This is a private system however, and will never

                                I only write one unique article a day, which sounds pretty lazy right? Its what happens after that which makes me money!

                                I submit the unique article to EZA but then rewrite the same article to have another 10 which are at least 70% unique, post to my blog and various other places.

                                Then the RSS network kicks in sending my article all over the place.

                                Then I turn the same article into other media and start distributing that, when you consider you can turn each article in to at least 4 other media types and then run each one through your promotion strategy and make each one unique that can take some time but is well worth it.

                                If your gonna take the time to write a unique and quality article you may as well get your moneys worth out of it.

                              CSwrite, I write short 200 to 300 word "how to" articles and I only write at the most 2 or 3 a day. I first have to think of what to write about and then I have to find a title (keyword phrase) that has a fair amount of searches with little competition. How many of those type of articles could you do in a day if you had to think of what to write about, do some research, find a keyword phrase with the right number of searches and competition, and then write a 2 to 3 hundred word article.

                                Hi Clint!

                                If I'm not given a topic list where my clients basically tell me to "write that" it does take a lot longer - and I think my max would be ten a day and still have them be great quality.

                                If I am writing in my area of expertise, it is a lot easier to churn and burn. If not, then it drops to about maybe 2 in an hour or less, depending on how much research I have to do. I typically spend 8-12 hours writing a day, plus more for research depending.

                                Sometimes I find it harder to write a 250 word article than a 500 word one honestly.

                                Writing this much definitely does take its toll and I do have days where I am totally burned out and don't even want to think about writing.

                              Hello Warriors,
                              I can do 5 - 10 on a productive day.

                              I think it is best to write when you feel you want to
                              and not force yourself.

                              I'm currently writing 20-30 articles per day to fulfil my WSO clients.
                              I will continue to write that many afterwards for myself, and run another WSO.

                              If I write less than 10 articles per day I'm having a slow day.

                              I guess if you've been writing for quite some time, you get to have a format in your head, plus there's your comfort zone. And there are a lot of factors: (1) your familarity with the topic (2) your familiarity with the tone or slant and (3) your familiarity with the audience. Personally the best scenario for me is: (1) topic: skin care, sleep or travel (2) tone: verbose descriptive sentences and (3) American. If I have that specific scenario then I can easily generate somewhere between 20-25 articles per day. If any of the conditions I mentioned changes, then the number goes lower. My lowest output? Real estate topic, with short, curt sentences for a British audience in an LSI format. I was only able to churn out 2 in a day, plus a migrane to boot. So I'd say on an average, 10 articles in a day.

                              And I'm only talking about the actual article writing, it takes me a half a day to read through different sources, a whole day if I'm asked to come up with more articles. You just can't write with limited information, what should come out is a mixture of whatever you've read, taking in the different point of views and different emphasis of the sources.

                              Same goes with rewrites, it's easier to rewrite something you're familiar with and it's harder to come up with articles if you're not. You've got the be familiar with the words used, its possible synonyms and allusions to some of the terms.

                                emerald fire - terrific points! Especially about how style and tone will have an impact on how long it takes to complete each one. I always get all of my research done first, make notes and then go - that does make a difference.

                              I can do 2-3 a day of researched (info and keywords), unique articles written from scratch, 500 words, proofed, edited and sent off to the client. Most times, it's 1 or 2 a day for a client, and 1 for myself, with other things in between like my blog, traffic, writing ads for other clients, forums and searching for the next freelance gig.

                              If push comes to shove and I get a rush job, I can do more, but the brain and eyes get very tired.

I probably do need to increase the number of articles I write, but it also sound like my articles are much longer than those mentioned here (500 words being the shortest one, 1200 being the largest I think.) I am a Ph.D. candidate, after all - I write stuff!

                        That being said, can anyone suggest a straitegy for shortening a long article, perhaps making it two articles, or a guideline that will help keep me from putting too much time into article generatio if I do not need to be so lengthy in my content presentation?

                        Thanks everyone! This thread is extremely helpful!

                        For the longer articles make them a two part or a series and maybe post the second part on your site? The reader will want to the second part and visit your site.

                      I have to admit, now that I have tons of articles out there and they're bringing me in a steady income, I don't write as much as I used to. People tell me I work too hard and I'm trying to cut back. But I still write between 3 and 6 articles each day.

                      Usually it's broken down as follows:

                      3 articles submitted to EZA.
                      2 articles for guest blogs.
                      1 article for my own blog.

                      That's a normal day. Some days I just do the EZA thing or only 1 guest article. So like I said, it's between 3 and 6.

                        It all depends. Sometimes I write up to 10 in a day and other times I do not write at all but on average I would say about 3-5 articles per day.

                            Martin, it's not easy, but with practice and fast typing, you can get it done. All of mine are unique, but I write for other people, so it's a big variety of different subjects. (and they all have to be unique or bye bye job)

                            I certainly can't do that many every day, but I think the fact that I'm on deadline helps. I've managed to get up to 120 words a minute typing, so that does factor in.

                            For me, the biggest motivation is to keep the lights on, dogs fed and propane in the propane tank - so it's basically write or starve. Kind of like death or cake...

                            If I was writing for myself, it would probably be anywhere from 1 to 5 a day (and I might even take a day off or six!)

                              I have some clients that write 5-10 articles a day but quality is a lot more important than quantity.

                              Make sure your articles are targeted to your readers direct interests and ensure your entire articles leads them into your resource box and you will get much better results than 10 respun PLR articles posted a day.

                                well I guess it breaks down to your personal objectives ;

                                what do you want to achieve from your articles. Most of the guys are writing tons of articles for getting traffic back to their websites. If you monitor your articles performance in your article manager module in ezine articles then you'll observe not all the artilces get alot of traffic " url clicks"

                                I remember I wrote one article a while back and it was on travel & leisure niche and that one artilce brought over 300 URL cilcks to date.... so for driving traffic you need to make your reader realise that he needs to find more of your work ..

                                so in this case Quantity will not matter... infact if you are writing more crappy artilces then you are just wasting your time and effort ...

                                However, at times your target is to get backlinks, website promotion then what your major concern is quantity ... and you are least bothered about "URL CLICKS"

                                so have to vary the number of artilce writing according to the objective that you have in mind ....

                        • 10 to 12 a day, without compromising quality, with enough research invested per article to target social news network votes. But then again, my motivation isn't to generate visitors or to spread links for my website. As a content writer by trade, what pushes me to craft as many articles on a daily basis are the needs of my clients. Whether such a motivation quickens or slows down my pace, I'll never know. =)

                            I used to write between 10 and 15 a day, when I was writing a lot.

                            To be honest these days I just outsource it though, frees up a lot more time and my working day is WAY shorter than it used to be.

                            Took me a while to get rid of the guilt I felt for not working all the time lol, but now that I'm used to it I much prefer not doing so much.

    Well, when I built my last site, I wrote close to 20 articles for submission, but only submitted the first five. Took almost a week to get approval on them from eza, I have since submitted four more of them, and it's been about 4 days and they're still pending approval as well. I keep writing one or two per day and just keep them stored on my HD and will just continue to submit as I get approvals.

    I have to preface this with I am a single mother, a full time student, and a full time preschool teacher. I write in my spare time which sometimes takes up all my time. I write 2 articles everyday no matter what. There have been days with 6-8. I am figuring out new ways to outline. The packages I keep getting assigned elsewhere often open up a lot of research for me although it is always interesting.

    My articles are usually 500 words. I write an article in about 45 minutes. I want to get it down to 30. Has anyone read "The 7 Minute Article" I found a lot of good techniques there.

    I am just learning how to get started here, and I have a lot of questions. I hope to be posting articles within the month.

    I would say I personally do about 3-4 articles a week. Sometimes you just don't have the time depending on how many projects your doing along with family etc... Outsourcing is definitely the way to go. You are able to accomplish many more things then you normally wouldn't be able to do by yourself. If people have problems writing articles but want to write more to reach their goals quicker and get more traffic and sales, get people to write for you. Relieves stress and work load and still gets you results for a small price.

    Happy Holidays Everyone!

    Alternatively you can have a team of reliable writers who you have carefully selected and trained over the past few months.

    It frees you the time to build your business system =)

    Personally, I have about 3 writers who can deliver 5 articles per day.

    I also set a target of writing at least 10 articles every day. But in the beginning I guess writing articles regularly is bit hard for the new writers.

    As writing consistently requires a great amount of positive attitude and motivation along with strong will power. I also get writer's block many a times of the day.

    The most number of articles I have written up to this day is only 7. I am really trying hard to concentrate on writing every day. But there are many distractions online which can easily keep you away from achieving your daily target. So one of the major barrier for me is lack of concentration and jumping to more than one income sources.

    The "time management" post of Tiffany Dow is really inspirational stating the importance of sticking to your daily time schedule. I hope in the next year I will be much more organized and strictly following my daily schedule...

    I try to write one a day. When I write an article I try to gather unique in info and that take time and also I want to be precious which I try to be that too take time as I do not use any software to write. Sometimes it takes two days to finish an article due to the natural tendency to write something novel always.

    On a good day I can write 7-8 articles,
    but I tend to write ones close to 500
    words.

    On a bad day I don't write any, but my
    plan is to write one a day from now on.

    I used to write one per day, but then I got bored and got other things to do, and they took my time, so I didn't write anything.

    However, last week I wrote 16 and next week I'm going to write 20 using a wonderful technique called "Credit Card" (or in another name: outsourcing).

    It's much better this way.

    I usually write between 1 to 5 per day, going to try to up my game in 2009 though. The more targeted articles you have out there, the more money you will make.

      I usually write at least one a day and sometimes as many as ten. It all depends on the Niche and subject matter. I spend a lot of time writing on blogs and forums that I like so that takes up a lot of my time, but sometimes I copy my posts and build an article around them so that makes it worth more.
