Looking at one of my more recent articles, I was reminded of the path to building traffic. It takes a bit, but I'm finding that when I make something with unique value, that they still do well over time.
Thanks for sharing, Paul. Besides unique value, do you credit anything else such as the lifespan of the article, promotional efforts, search engine optimization or a combination of the above? Was your work on the article a one-time effort or a series of efforts over time?

In the old days, you could write a concise title like "How to...." and have some generic steps and rank. Today, a concise or conversational title is still a good idea, but there needs to be a lot of supporting content that's well organized, easily digestible for the reader, and adds uniqueness.
When these things are done well, traffic grows steadily.
