Quick Ezinearticles Question...

by Warrior Markets 7 replies
Does anyone know how we can tell the source of the traffic to our articles on Ezinearticles.com? I feel as if it's something so obvious, and that I've missed it; or that, it just isn't possible, and that I just assumed it to be. I know it shows how many views we get, etc, but the actual source? I did do a search here, but didn't find the answer.

Thanks

    Total speculation on my part, but I assume that google sends the most traffic to ezinearticles as they do turn up in quite a few google searches.

      To be honest, I'm not sure that information like that is something they would want released because they do make income from the articles submitted to them by the various article marketers and authors that use their directory.

      However, I would place money that a large majority of their traffic comes from Google because most of the articles that have a high content of page views are ranked high on Google. It's really a great business model they are running because they constantly receive new content submitted to their site every minute of the day which ultimately could lead to them cornering the market on a mass majority of the long tail keyword phrases.

        Thanks for your replies, braver5b and TimG.

        I can see why they might not want to release those details, and appreciate that the majority of the traffic might be coming from Google; I just wanted to know if there was a way of tracking the traffic, so we can focus our attention on specific sources. I just seemed to be getting a surge in traffic recently, but can't figure why.. shouldn't complain.

        Thanks again.

        I have nothing of value to add here. But we can't let a signature go to waste now, can we?

          Perhaps there is some form of a tracking code you could place in the links in your resource box to see where the clicks are coming from to your articles.

          Wish I could help more but tracking codes..etc - that's not really my speciality.

          Another aspect that will increase your traffic that some people forget about is the fact that a webmaster can pick up your article and send it to their subscriber list which can be 1,000's and or put your article on a high PR site as well.

          Sometimes there will be a spike in traffic that's not from typical Google searches and this is the reason why in many cases.

          Cheers,
          Dean

            Also you can put a link to it in a Twitter post and have traffic arrive to it that way.

          Hi Tim,

          I agree with Braver55b and I believe a lot of traffic comes from Google because it is one of the authority sites. Also the traffic comes from many other sites that link to ezinearticles.com. You can check the source by typing "link:ezinearticles.com" in the search bar. I'm sure there are many different sources for its traffic but these are the definite sources I believe.

          But this is just a general traffic to the site and even that can't be the accurate source for the traffic to your particular article.

          Warm Regards,
          Joe
