Excellent article, David

Now, I think I do all that. I even pay somebody to proofread and edit my articles, since my first language is not English. But I would like to get a lot more views on my articles. Well, a few have had 700, 500 views, but most crawl around 20-30 views. Nothing to boast about.

I have a vague idea about it has something to do with not being hypey enough when I'm writing the appetizer. Often, I feel lazy and just copy and paste the first lines from the article.

Oh, and if that's not appetizing enough that probably means that my introductions are not that great. Hm...

More hype? Is that the answer?

The key here is to have a good header in order to capture the attention of your readers.
The opening sentence should also be very good.
The articles should be useful to the readers but also incomplete so that they will be interested to learn more by clicking on your resource box.
This is the pattern that I kept using.

I just wonder how many times do you post the same article? Is it worth to post it many times? How about duplicated content?

There are two school of thoughts on this subject. Some people claim that duplicate content is a myth while others claim that Google do penalize duplicate content.
Personally I prefer to be on the safe side and spin my articles before publishing them elsewhere.

Me too, Joshua

I do a bit of spinning (manual), and then I post on other directories.

This is new for me, though. I used to only post on Ezine Articles, and I've had good result with them.

Now I see more views from ArticleRich, but I'm not sure if their counter is correct or not.

I have never used ArticleRich. Only Ezinearticles and Goarticles for me.

Why, Joshua?

If you want another directory that publishes your articles immediately, I can recommend IdeaMarketers. ArticlesBase is pretty fast, when it comes to accepting articles, but you might have to wait a few hours.

Wow, It's a great article on article writing and so far as I have found it the most informative and detailed among all the articles I have read yet.
