Who writes these Articles

Article writers today are more like freelance secret agents on the web, they must be able to use their ingenuity, catlike reflexes, sometimes uncanny writing abilities, and investigative eyes to target what they believe will be the best topics to write about.

There's some pretty desperate companies on the internet, that are just dying to pay out large amounts of revenue for such online writers, who are capable of actively attracting these huge crowds of visitors in the millions to their web locations, and after hitting that infamous cool publish button of many writers networks.

This all in hopes that these writers would help them generate web traffic & become the single handed digital bread winners for them. The actual money being earned today is from ad revenue mostly, but when a writer is bringing in web traffic in the millions, the pay out's are astronomical compared to those writers who don't appear to have such a magnetically attractive capability.

Good writing skills is imperative

Writing good content takes practice & SEO knowledge

It takes a very skillful writing talent, and dedicated effort for a single hub article to begin cranking out some respectably high numbers of views, or a certain stroke of literary worded genius for any article to go viral today. When it comes to web statistics though, the search engines are king, and people online are the lost crusaders of its magnificent fire works show display sort to speak.

Whenever a person chooses to type into the search field of any search engine Yahoo, Google, or Bing, the digital light show begins, and the race to the discovery of a single article that was weaved onto the web also starts to gain its potential to be located. This article is going to address the cause, and overall effect of a single hub article, that I wrote back in early March, that has took lift off like no other hub I've ever published thus far onto the web, and is gaining massive momentum today.

Below, I provided an image of it, and its success thus far was a true surprise, because many of my hubs haven't even budged much from putting up low views, but this one is on fire it seems today.

Forbes Top Ten Billionaire's list of 2012 - Hit a hubscore of 100

Titling is the Master Key to getting higher web traffic

For example: The slick title of this hot article supplied in the image above is, "Forbes Top 10 Billionaires list", and when I first seen that title on Yahoo, I just knew that it was a jackpot in the making, and so I was determined to find out all that I could about that particular topic.

So, I quickly put on my internet super hero suit and dove straight into investigative action mode head first and I didn't look back neither, or come up for any air. The intensive research on that scorching hot 100 degree spring day had commenced (Go Figure!). Key stoke after mouse swing, all the juicy relevant information started popping up on the screen, on Google's search results. I actually visited multiple web locations to find enough supporting info on the topic, and it payed off big time once all my research was done.

After publishing it I took off my cape of course, then I noticed the web traffic views begin to take off instantly as well, and from that point on I had a feeling I had finally done the impossible. I finally had written something worthy of riding the high tides of hot popular web content that seem to always create tidal waves of web traffic.

Does Keywords do the Trick or is it something more

Keywords are powerful on the web today and they definitely make all the difference, but they aren't the only thing. Popularity of a particular trending subject will need to be focused upon, in order for your keywords to play a true effective role in bringing huge web traffic back to your web location and almost immediately after publishing it.

Such high volumes of these hot topics seem to occur quite randomly at times on the internet, so you must be mindful of selecting great titles that actually fit that popular searched subject matter, known to be hot on the web (Try using Google's Adwords keyword tool).

One thing for sure is, there's nothing like evergreen topics to write on (Universal subjects and keywords to utilize), that consistently get searched for all year round, and are something of a universal thing to be looked for on the web by most web surfers, those won't always bring your hub account the most web traffic but will allow it to be continuous throughout the articles life cycle.

How hot is hot on the web.

These hot trending searches and subjects however are actually considered to be web triggers of sorts, to get rapid increases in hub traffic or web traffic in general. This is where many web developers, article writers, bloggers, and the likes have learned to key into with their analytical research skills, and knowledge for understanding SEO (search engine optimization), so when they write, design, and implement into a single given space onto a web page, they also have in mind such things as meta tags, tags, spacing, titling, sub-titling, page summaries, and much more.

This is the heart and mind of a web article, and anyone for that matter who's determined to place their words into full activeness on the web, needs to know of such things. (To learn more visit this informative article written by a SEO specialist & hubpages author, H.C. Porter - Website Content vs SEO Content )

These unforgiving parameters of SEO spoken up above, and in that hub article link provided, are the many things that truly makes it even more intense when you're writing content onto any space on the web, because each page will need to also be able to keep the reader occupied using word powers of selective originality. You need to think of what might interest folks even more, entice their minds to remain on that particular web page, whether it may be a article, blog, or even a video location or maybe just an image gallery of sorts.

Keywords work wonders, but they must not be repeated to many times throughout any part of a given web space, and may not be overly stressed or else the search engines will also look at it as a spam location, and it may back fire on the article or content writer.

Even if you're writing about math everything counts


Keeping the audience occupied

You need to be able to keep the audience fully engaged for quite some time, in order for the web gods, the Search Engines to respond to your web location with an affirmative sign of approval today, because they have some pretty investigative reporting agents there known as bots, that will do a higher sophisticated scan of your content you've inserted into that portion of web space, and it will instantaneously approve or disapprove of its rights to remain on the web as a higher ranked page, or to be shoved to the side as a sort of non-existent waste of a being.

This is how it works pretty much today, and so if your to write a powerful article, you better do the right thing by it, and beef it up to keep people entertained a bit, with some spiciness sort of speak when it comes to content levels in a wide variety, and space things out a bit to help folks with visual appeal so they can easily get through your material you've supplied them.

Make your articles useful and in every way or else you are truly cheating yourself, and lowering the overall quality of your writings, which may spell inevitable doom for it all in the long run when it comes to it taking full launch into cyber space, the web, or just the internet (They all mean the same thing ).

      @brakel2, thanks for your kind words, as hubbers it is very tough to learn to master the right techniques to produce the best results for our articles we choose to publish, but if we try our best to learn it all, we are surely placing ourselves in a much better position to gain on all levels for sure.

      Research is definitely one of the number one keys to such success, you got that right, and I worked my tail off to make that article stand out, I also learned much of the rules to utilizing researched information so it placed that article in a class of its own I guess.

      I would faint if I ever got a score of 100 for a Hub. I now have one that is a 97, and that amazes me.

      Good Hub about your good Hub! That was pretty interesting. It isn't even the end of 2012, so I still have time to make it on Forbe's list, right?

      I voted this Up, etc.

      Hey Spy, thank you as well for giving my hub here a chance, it was fun to write, and I figured why not let others know of this cool new achievement, it took me close to a year for my first ever hub to hit 100.

      Yeah I got lucky I guess, but I did use a bit of technique though to write that hub there, it wasn't easy but it was well worth a try, you know.

      Hey Suziecat7, Yeah it's tough for sure to know what works, but I think by me trying to ride the waves online it has taught me something very important. I definitely know now how it works when it comes to keywords, and things that folks are looking for due to certain hot trends.

      So if you time out many of your articles on well known up and coming trends if will pay off for sure in the long run, if you plan ahead a bit.

      Thanks for the visit and comment, and I do think though that sometimes being totally random works wonders as well.

      It's really hard to know what's right. I just plug along hoping I'm heading in the right direction. Great Hub!

      Yeah I do that myself, I don't actually use Google's keyword tool, but I'm a hub writer so I must provide the content that's most useful to others out here on the web, or else I may not be fulfilling the true purpose of such a hub article, you know.

      Thanks for the cool feedback and for visiting, i'm happy you dug my hub here, cool beans and welcome to hubpages.

      Generally when I do SEO (keywords ) I "pretend" I'm the searcher. Don't get me wrong I use the google keyword tool as well but I seem to "hit" on the good tags by just pretending to be the searcher thus eliminating much of the tedious keyword task. Interesting info...thankyou!
