Milestone to share with you today: EzineArticles Expert Author & Executive Coach/Communications Trainer Trina Roach submitted the 1 millionth article we were able to accept:
Even though EzineArticles.com was launched November of 1999, the current site was rebuilt from the ground up on August 4th, 2004. That means it took us 3 years and 10 months to manually review and accept the first million articles.
Many will ask, so I wanted to also address that yes, we did reject 231,787 articles that didn’t meet our editorial guidelines or about 23.2% (1 in 5) articles submitted is not accepted… the rejection percentage has doubled over the last 2 years.
Interesting thing about EzineArticle’s growth story is that we don’t have skyrocket growth rates (ie: we’re not adding millions of new members per month), but rather a calm predictable 100%+ per year growth rate. If you’re part of this growth rate, thanks for being one of our charter members for the first million articles!
Congratulations to Trina!
