My biggest thing I want to know is how to determine what subjects to write about. What is it that will be of interest, that someone will want to read.

Where is the best place to find people to write blocks of content/articles for Search Engine purposes on a specific topic, that are of decent quality?

Hello from snowy Montana; Anxious to “hear” what you have to share tonight. My quandry is that I tend to write articles that are way too long (typically 900-1500 words) How do others manage to keep them short, sweet and to the point. Perhaps, it is because I enjoy reading longer articles that I write them, but I know most people don’t.

Dear Christopher,

An RSS feeder and reader wouldn’t fit with my website. Can I enjoy RSS advantages?

I don’t really understand the advantages to writing articles for your magazine other than creating backlinks to my site. After one article is submitted (which creates the backlink), to be perfectly honest, what real incentive do I have to continue to submit more articles?

Give us some “eye-catching” ideas for our article opening and closing. what works and what doesn’t?

When you already have high production, what are some keys to doubling or even tripling your production?

My questions normally come at the spur of the moment, but this is what I come up with for the moment:
> who are the readers, can you tell me a bit more about them. Are most of the readers, other authors. What are their preferences, why do they read? And When, at home or at work?
> Is article writing competing with writing books? I do not see a lot about that at EzineArticles. I hereby reserve a next article title: If one article is a picture. How to write a film!

That‚s about it.

Does submitting the same article (with a link) to multiple sites help with website rank on search engines or does it hurt because it is viewed as “spam?”

Hi, Can you explain how RSS works and how it is related to articles on the net? Thanks! Kathryn

When my articles are a bit too long, I divide them into 2 parts. It seems, though that people are not as interested in the second part for fewer people read it. Hoping it is not a matter of poor content, shall I make two similar articles out of a big one or shall I name them differently?
Thanks for great work, guys!

What is your opinion on putting anchor text links within the body of an article? Is this allowed and/or recommended? A successful Internet marketer suggested that would help drive more traffic to my website than just my resource box.

1. how do you write article sets???

2. are you going to take more sets of articles that will format.

3. are you planning to set it up so we can just format our articles in word (some sites do)?

## How long should a good article be so that it is picked up to be published?

## How should the article be formatted? (font, font size, font color, length of lines, graphics, etc.)

## How do you choose a powerful title that will be noticed?

## What should be included in the by-line and how long should it be?

Hi Chris,

Great info and great call. Question: McDonalds is known for their volume system and not known for quality food. Should we worrry about quality of our articles – especially when we increase on volume?

Quick question: Can I see an example how I can use 3 links in my resource box?

Huge Thanks,

Outstanding Call Chris!

You not only gave me no-fluff, hard-hitting information but you inspired me as well. Using your techniques I easily see how to triple my article production. I’m shooting for 100 articles in the next 90 days!

Huge Thanks,

Chris, I enjoyed the teleseminar tonight. It is really nice to hear voices from all over the globe. I didn’t jump in with an introduction when I came on the line. I learned alot. What can you tell someone like me who doesn’t have a website? I have been looking into one, but I have “website creation block”. My articles are travel related, also, and usually 900-1200 words. I didn’t see any of those on I am giving thought to adding other niches. Who would you recommend to help me with website building and are you able to share anything on average costs?

The production information and writing in sets is most useful to me and validated my experience with completing ten articles in the past three weeks.

Look forward to hearing from you again. Thank you.

Hi Chris

I enjoyed listening to the recording of the Teleconference. Thank you for putting this together.

I would like to hear you talk more about improving the quality of articles and a wish list for articles from the readers, that the authors can scan from time to time for inspiration?

I had a look in the report section of the site and found it very helpful to know the hits for each article read the comments that where left and see the star rating received.

Thanks for putting this on the site.
