Expert Author Showcase: David L Greene

Meet EzineArticles’ Expert Author David L Greene in Today’s Showcase

Ranked as the number 1 Expert Author in Pain Management, Medical Entrepreneur and Internet Marketing Expert David L. Greene shares his training in orthopedic surgery and his knowledge of medical devices to empower his readers.

The Shift from Expert to Expert Author

From physical therapy to medical/interventional pain management, David has published over 600 quality, original articles in less than 3 years. “I realized that what individuals dealing with chronic pain need most is information,” he said. “As a by-product of writing articles, people in pain have responded to reading my articles on over 30,000 times and my clinic receives a significant amount of patients from the distribution and interest generated.”

As a fellowship trained spine doctor, David has chosen to devote his career to the business side of medicine and write articles to target the needs of his clinic’s patients (and those with similar needs around the world). This shift in focus allows David the ability to write more articles, but not lapse on the quality.

David on the Process of Article Writing

Finding additional ways to improve the quality of his articles and success in a focused period of time, David uses inspiration from Google Alerts, pain research, patients, and more information to write fresh, informative articles. Although finding the time to produce content that creates what he calls “knowledge value” with substance is still challenging, David dictates his writing on his iPad in his office or car. “I like silence so I can concentrate fully on the subject matter,” he said. “I’m a multi-tasker at heart, but not when it comes to producing quality articles.”

David admitted one challenge to writing was learning how to take a subject or topic he’d previously written about and to not simply re-write the topic. Discovering that every topic can vary as much as an ankle injury, David said his solution is to take a new twist on the topic so the information is fresh and adds to the previous article.

Final Advice to Expert Authors

Looking back on his efforts, David stated “I would have made all my articles over 400 words from the start.” Besides writing quality articles over 400 words, David’s recommendation for fellow expert authors “is to truly realize how to use the [Resource Box], as it is the only place you are allowed to place self-serving links. You get 2 … which is very valuable, so make sure to understand how it’s best used.”

“EzineArticles has been one of the best Internet marketing decisions I’ve made over the years,” David stated. “One thing that is important with [writing articles] is to produce content consistently, not once a month. The benefits … will be dramatic in that regard. The whole process is a marathon, not a sprint!”

Try David’s methods to amp up your own article writing efforts. Find innovative solutions for time management, give old topics a new twist, and write consistently to increase the volume of your portfolio of quality, original articles.

How can Google alerts help you in article writing?

By setting up Google alerts for your pen name(s) and your article titles, you can be notified when one of your articles has been picked up by a reputable publisher … or posted in error without proper attribution. This will help you better understand how your articles are being used (or perhaps misused).

Hi Marc,

Could you please tell me How I can use my resource box to get optimum advantage?

Are we permitted to use company’s name is that or not?
if yes, in what way?

Best Regards


Shashi –

The answer to your question is fairly complex and involved and beyond the scope of a simple blog reply. I would suggest you take a look at some of these videos to get in-depth information on the topic,

David congrats on the awesome publicity. Keep up the high quality articles with your article marketing efforts.

But 1 question:

If you had to start all over again, why would you make all of your articles over 400 words?

Randall, many of my articles have been over 400 words. When I first began, I thought that only those of 400 words would be acceptable. I find that my longer articles are better than those that just meet the minimum. I have learned much.

Thanks for responding. I have the same thought process about creating articles under 500 words – so i see where you’re coming from. Like you, i have learned much also. I have been doing article marketing for the past year and i learn something new each month.

Randall, if you will explore the Writer’s Market Directory, you will see that they want writing pieces which are from 800 to 2500 words. I am thinking about doing some articles for some of the magazines in the Directory. I have 28 published by EzineArticles and I have only been writing them since November of last year. I have been writing since I was a teen, but haven’t marketed them. Now I would love to sell. I am living with cancer and my first articles was about that and I plan to follow it up with remission and return and still living with it. Good luck for longer and better articles to you.

thanks for the interesting recommendations, from which I think I understood that google alerts is intended only as a hint to identify new research trends. Right?

Thank you all for the congrats! To clarify on Google Alerts, I’ll give an example. I use the term “pain management” to see what research is coming out or emerging procedures that I might want to write about. I do the same for orthopedics, oil and gas, and more if I have an internet marketing clients in those areas. I receive a daily email with what Google collects from the web, and it’s like an automated “brain storm” of ideas!

You are providing so much valuable information to people who need to read what you are sharing. As a former professor of health and physical education and currently a licensed mental health counselor and bodymind therapist, I read so many newsletters and journals about healing, mental health, pain management, marriage counseling – so much that is not reaching the clients who need to read this. So much is written for professionals and shared among professionals.

I see part of my task as one of sharing the valuable information in a way that the average person can understand it. That is one thing that allows me to do. And it seems that you are doing this also.


Dr. Erica
