Quite a few small enhancements went into the site this past week:
- Your Article Reports now include Article ID (many large quantity article members requested this feature) and it’s also included in the CSV reports you can export.
- Editorial Guidelines Updated – (4) sections received a little extra clarification.
- Sub-Category Alphabetization occurred to make finding your sub-category of interest, faster.
- About EzineArticles.com was updated to further share how we view this project and our priorities.
I have a question about the email alerts for each category. I wonder if you have any stats on how many people use these? I’m signed up to the categories I submit to and it helps me keep in touch with what others are doing. I was wondering if there’s a benefit to staggering article submissions to appear more often in the email alerts?
For example, if I wrote 10 articles on a weekend, is it more beneficial to then submit 2 a day for the next 5 days so I appear repeatedly in the email alerts, or just submit the whole lot as soon as they’re written, as I do now? Obviously psychologically it’ll APPEAR as if I’m writing more if I stagger the submissions, rather than dump 10 down in one go, then have none for 5 days.
Easy question and I wish I could give you an easy answer… Here are the issues:
The Booster Rocket argument is aligned with your thoughts about wanting to stagger your article submissions to get continuous exposure boosts, (be sure to read what can happen to your account if you abuse the booster rocket in this entry: (Is There A Life To An Article).
Our own stats and experience would argue that you get more net exposure/traffic if you do the big dump rather than spreading out articles you’ve already prepared for submission.
Just like it’s good to advertise every month, we believe (with a bias) that you should write/submit articles every month if you want to build your traffic levels. :-)
