      Hi there,

      I'm afraid the problem here is the topic and location. Writing articles for Letterpile is a bit of a wasted effort. People just aren't searching for your title.

      Titles are the key, and your introduction is the reader-grabber. You have to write articles that people are looking for. It really is as simple as that.

      Your intro is not very inviting. Who would ever think of themselves as 'eaten by their negative perception'. That would make me click the back button straight away as I couldn't identify with the description. Would you walk into a classroom and tell your students they are a bunch of whining losers?

      Every time you start an article, think of it as walking into a classroom.

      Think of an eye-catching title and then create good quality content. Bookmarking your URL on social sites, commenting on other related blogs are some of the ways to drive traffic.

    According to your profile you have specialized knowledge and experience. If you choose to write articles that help people in the subjects you know about, you will get traffic. If you write poems you will probably not get much traffic.
    The other thing is that you have only been here for 3 days. You are not going to see much traffic that fast. This is going to take a LONG time.

    I agree with what theraggededge and Dr. Mark have written. If you love writing poetry, go for it, but know that there are not a lot of people who are going to Google and typing in "love or deceit poem." I think lots of people who write poetry on letterpile do so as a labor of love and are fine with it gaining only a small audience.

    If you are after views, it helps to write articles that solve problems. Dr. Mark pointed out that you have specialized knowledge and training, so consider writing on the topics you are trained in and have experience with.

    Another option is to think about the things your friends and family ask you for advice about or projects they ask you to help them with. These may or may not be topics you have formal training in and may or may not be related to your career. Are you the guy on the block who knows how to grow the perfect weed-free lawn or the most beautiful peonies? Have you mastered the art of keeping your swimming pool water crystal clear? Do you know a great technique for getting babies to sleep through the night or toddlers to stay in their own beds? Have you figured out a clever way to clean up a grease-encrusted BBQ grill, score the best prices on airline tickets or defeat the boss character in a video game? Those kinds of articles are likely to get more views, because when people need help solving everyday problems they often go to Google and type "how to (…)" and as a result may find your article.

    edit: So the article you've linked to above might be better titled and slightly reworked to something like "How to Change a Negative Mindset to a Positive One" or "5 Ways to Train Yourself to Be a More Positive Person" (though I admit I skimmed it very quickly so I may have not gotten an accurate gist of it).

    The secret of high traffic is the hot topics that people are searching for online. But there's a high сompetition in this at the same time. You can write on topics that are narrowly focused and get in the top.
