    Even though it's only an average of 15-50 views per day, https://soapboxie.com/us-politics/10-Re … Presidency is getting a near-constant stream of views. There have been some 90-something google searches with my article, and within just 4 months, my article has generated almost 1,400 views. It is over 4,500 words long, and I keep updating it. Sooner or later, it will hit the 5,000-word mark. Should I slim it down, or continue to pile it up? And yes, I have bleeped the curse words.

      Looks like you are getting the hang of it.     
      Updating is always a good thing, but I think that making it longer is probably not necessary. Most people will not go much further. 
      You might  want to keep re-reading it to see if there is anything repetitive or unnecessary.  You are more likely to lose readers for that reason . . . (and curses are always detrimental).
      Congratulations!

      Hi Ivan -- you might want to take what works with this article and apply it to other articles. I have done that before and it can really make a difference for other articles that aren't doing as well.

        This is something I am trying to do myself. I have about three Hubs that are doing much better than the rest.

      If it's not broke, don't fix it. The topic is hot and popular, which increases views and traffic. This is a good thing!

    Congrats! I'm glad you decided to hang in there. It is a long, slow race but it can be worth it, especially if you keep adding content while you're waiting for good things to happen with traffic and earnings.

      thank you. My article now has over 1,400 views over the course of 4 months. 2 more months, and it'll reach 1500+ lifetime views. I've gotten over 100 people searching for this subject on google over the course of 4 months, 64 over the course of this month alone. I didn't mention the fact that the president didn't visit Miami after the tragedy in my notes. I will add that soon. More updates still to come.

    This is called not giving up. I'm glad you are doing well!

      Thank you. This article is the culmination of months of hard work. At one point, this article was 2 points shy of 100 points. I totally expect that this article passes the 2,000-view mark within 6 months if I keep adding content into this masterpiece. 10,000 words not too far off, huh?

      Thank you. This article has over 4,750 words. I think that my article will reach 5,000 words before too long.
