Thesis: Category congestion on EzineArticles.com does not exist.
When you submit to our site, you are not competing with the other articles in the same category that your articles are listed in despite your natural feeling or intuition that may say otherwise.
Sure, it would be great if someone came to the “insert your category” and only found your last 75-200 articles on that topic, but that’s not going to happen on a site of our scale.
You are competing with yourself and your ability to continue to crank out high volumes of high quality articles, week in and week out.
86% of our members are dormant and only sent in a handful of articles. That means you can easily dominate a category by sending in a stream of articles every month for the primary category of your choice.
…however, recall the myth that people actually browse our site. Truth is, more than 70% of our traffic lands directly on a specific article that solves the problem or addresses the concern of the person searching for the expertise.
If you’ll believe the truth, then you’ll know that category congestion can not exist because it doesn’t matter based on how our traffic pattern brings visitors directly to each article.
