I notice now the resource box now is limited to 7 to 15%.

How come it keeps getting smaller.

Do you only want people to click on your adsense ads and not our link?

What about the Give and Take. It seems like you are constantly taking more and giving the authors less.

This is not true. The recommendation is to make your resource box about 15% of your article body’s word count…

Example: 1000 word count article body would have a 150 word resource box.

However, we do allow larger than 15% if the quality of the article is high.

Now, about giving authors less? Nope, not true.

Statistically, we keep an eye on how many clicks we deliver all of our authors daily. It’s CLIMBING every single month! This month, we’ve been delivering 239,000+ clicks DAILY on average to our members. No one else in our industry delivers like that.

…and it’s our goal to continue to deliver more to our members in terms of highly pre-qualified traffic back to your website.

Until I set up my blog 6 months ago I had no interst in writing anything.
I have a very smart young marketer friend who said if you are going to be marketing online you need a blog.
He was and is right on.
Now 6 months later thanks to sites like this I’ve learned much and my blog is nearing the top million in the states and top 4 million globally.
I have not yet asdded an article to your site but will start this week.
I have learned much from your site though and thanks for that.
