2 SEO Practices to help Increase Readership For Your Articles

Updated on December 25, 2013

How to Increase readership for your article-part4

Being able to get much readership for your content is the only way you can get the desired response whether you are publishing to generate income from revenue sharing directories or writing to promote your product or to send backlinks to your website. When writing for a revenue sharing site like hubpages or squidoo , the more your articles are viewed , the higher your prospects or your chances of getting ads on your page clicked . Also when you are writing to promote your website , the more people read the content, the more traffic and back-links you will be able to generate to your website . Discussed in this article are two main SEO practices you can apply to increase readership for your published contents .

The keyword density of a content is one of the main on-page factors that search engines use to find or pull out relevant content . Keywords and keyword phrases are also what a potential reader would be using to search for the content on the web . To increase readership for your articles, you should try as much as possible to fuse in your content the appropriate level of keywords or frequently searched key phrases in your article . This will help to increase the visibility of your content in the search engine ranking .The appropriate level of keywords or a frequently searched keyword phrase used in your content will help the readers to find your content with ease .You should also fuse into your article title the same keywords that your potential reader is likely to use to search for the article on the directory or on the search engine . The use of the appropriate keywords in your content and title is also able to connect your content to other related articles on the directory which in turn increases the page's relevance to search engine crawlers . Even if your article is not found in the first search , readers will be able to find your article as they read other related contents that your articles connect to on the directory .

*Another way to increase readership for your articles is to group your published works and connect them to other related contents that you have published on the directory . You will do so by writing more articles and connect them by placing links of your published works on other related works . Cross linking your articles on the directory increases your article's keyword density which in turn increases the visibility of your articles in the search engine . The more visible your article is in search engine rankings , the more readership you get for your articles .

Also you can increase the visibility of your old articles by cross linking them with old ones . As newly published contents are ranked higher on the articles directory than old contents , putting links of old contents on new ones helps to get readership for old articles too .

Cross linking your content also helps to keep your readers in your content web . As a reader clicks to read your other related contents to get a more understanding they are kept longer in your content web . The more and longer you are able to keep your readers in a web of your content , the more readership you get and the more readers you get as they from one article to the other .

      Thanks for these great tips! I don't have any old articles yet I have only been on 4 months...but I will definitely remember to link the old to the new!

      Cross linking within the content of any web page, hub or not, has a two-fold effect of both driving human visitors between pages (links in body text are more clicked upon than things like the hub linker at the bottom of the hub) and also helping SEO, as Google loves links, even internal ones.

      Good advice in this hub. My daughter has been trying to explain this to me but I think I am either pretty dense or resistant to change.
