.*An interesting article is able to generate hot discussions and comments from readers and this goes a long way to increase the visibility of your content in a search engine ranking . When readers comment on your article , the article directories also notifies the followers or subscribers of your readers . This means not only your followers or subscribers will find your articles to read but also the followers of your readers .

Comments and discussions are also able to increase readership for your article as most readers take much interest in reading what their friends are reading . The more people comment on your article , the more you increase readership because most readers believe that the more comments an article has , the more interesting the content is . You should therefore write articles that are thought provoking and that would make people want to comment or share their personal views and experiences .

*You can also increase readership for your content by sharing the content with your friends or followers on other social networks such as Facebook , twitter etc . If your article is interesting and worth discussing, readers would also share with their friends(potential readers) on the network .
