Hello Harish,

I have the same problem. I added several people to my Network list, and the chat feeds listed are back in 2011. I get no contact whatsoever as well from anyone.

Thank you for your questions. I’ll answer them in the same order as in your message:

1. The Payment Accounts on http://My.EzineArticles.com show any purchases from the EzineArticles Store. The ‘Overview’ section will show your credit card information and recent activity. The ‘Invoices’ section will show each transaction as well as the online receipt for each transaction.

2. In order to qualify for a membership upgrade, there must be a clear recent and longstanding trend of non-problematic articles on your account. Each member on EzineArticles can review their account status, number of submissions left, and a summary of areas of improvement here.

We offer many tips for writers regardless of their purpose of writing or their topic of interest. If you choose to include a link to your own website, it can help you gain additional traffic. The best way to increase your credibility and exposure is by submitting original, high quality articles that are accepted on the first submission.

Please refer to the following blog for further information on upgrading to the Platinum level:
http://blog.EzineArticles.com/2009/03/roadmap-to-platinum.html

3. You are more than welcome to use your content on both your website or for a contest and http://EzineArticles.com.

However, please ensure your name is clearly attached anywhere the article is republished so it can be verified that you are the original author. Also, if you are posting your blog on http://EzineArticles.com, please remove any blog-type language in the Article Body and refer to it as an “article,” not a “blog.”

4. Please refer to this blog to give you tips and advice with the Networking and Discussions sections of My.EzineArticles.

Hi again

Something strange occured to me today as I pondered SEO. I began to suspect that some relative=”nofollow” could be involved, and my worst suspicions were actually confirmed…

Why does EzineArticles add the nofollow-tag to links from the resource box?

It would seem more fair simply not to have this, and even to use _blank as target so your site was still available to people when they moved on to an author’s site.

This way you are skimming the milk both ways. Gaining the Adsense-income, and hurting authors’ positions on the internet, because now it would seem like we are disavowing our own websites.

Will you consider changing this? Thanks beforehand.

[Reply]

To clarify, when you include a link in your article, it was previously formatted in a way that told search engines to “follow” your link. In other words, the search engine would know where your link was placed on the Internet and the more backlinks you had, the higher chance you had for your article to be returned in search results.

However, as times changed, the search engines no longer weigh the links the same as they did in the past. Instead of ranking links based on how many were placed around the Internet, they judge (or rank) links based on other factors, such as quality content, navigation, etc.

We had a high reason to believe that both your website and our website will perform better if we added the “NOFOLLOW” attribute to links in articles. This is a format that tells search engines not to follow the links as they did in the past. Instead, the links will be followed in other more organic ways, such as when somebody shares your article.

I would recommend reading our blog post that explains this topic further. You can view it here: http://blog.EzineArticles.com/2014/09/ezinearticles-com-links-are-now-100-percent-nofollow.html.

Please explain the function or purpose of Ezine Publisher?

Comment provided July 20, 2016 at 2:06 PM

[Reply]

Thanks for your question, Lorie! I’ll quickly explain some of the statistics shown in this area of http://My.EzineArticles.com.

The “EzinePublisher” statistic in your account shows how many times people have clicked on the “EzinePublisher” button on your article. It doesn’t guarantee that they published your article, but it does indicate that they had interest in publishing your article. The “Emailed” statistic shows how many times your article was included in an email.

The “Article Views” statistic in your account show how many times your articles have been viewed. The “Article Clicks” statistic shows how many times one of your URL’s was clicked.

I hope this answers your question.

David Croucher writes:

Hi, Josh.

A belated answer: as the help pages explain, there’s no limit on how or how many times a keyword is used as long as you use it naturally. Modern search engines will value a keyword even if it’s used only once in the article, and it might occur many more times – as long as the article reads naturally. But any hint of what (in the old days was called) keyword stuffing, and your ranking gets trashed!

The search engines, like the real people I hope you’re trying to attract, now want an article that answers their query, is well written and concise and easy to understand. Correctly using keywords and their alternates is key to this, and ‘how many times’ isn’t important. Annoying your readers by terrible language skills (like overuse of a word) is counterproductive.

Go to the help pages on this website, and you’ll find all you need to know to help you write an attractive article that draws in readers!

I am a freelance writer of 7 years. Even after I give prospective clients links of http://www.EzineArticles.com where my articles have been published, they ask me to write free samples. What is the value of my EzineArticles membership, if I have to write a free sample for them. I showcase my articles on your site so that I can present them as my portfolio to my prospective clients, but when such things happen, my confidence in your utility goes for a toss. How can you explain this?

You can’t blame EzineArticles for prospective clients acting as fools. :-)
I would say you should be especially attentive towards materials you send to such people, because you might find it’s an attempt to suck out articles from you, and if they appear on other sites they may have, you could become a victim of scamming.
Such people are, sorry to be blunt, a waste of time. It should be visible to anyone that EzineArticles does a good job in their editorial review, and articles on this site are little gold medals in their own small way. People who focus on quality should be able to spot that.
Sorry for replying as you might have hoped for a reply from the EA-team first, but I couldn’t help offering a bit of advice as I have seen this before in other connections…

Almost one year without new articles on this blog. Has the team given up?

Personally, I must say that my own test after making comments on the Nofollow-strategy has proved one thing: I have never had so much traffic since removing my articles from the EzineArticles database, so all the claims in the comments-thread that Nofollow wouldn’t have any negative effect is proven wrong.

But I did want to give you a thumbs up encouraging you to remember your own advice: regular content is key to an active blog.

Have a nice sunday. :-)

I recently spoke with a Spanish teacher who teaches at a French university. It seemed ridiculous to him that in the North American universities the students filled out questionnaires at the end of each course to evaluate the professors that are taken into account by the departments and the deans. In France, no credit is given to this way of measuring the quality of the teaching staff.

When I meet with Spanish colleagues, the attitude is the same. I know that in Italy and Portugal similar things are seen. Teachers can be years releasing the same roll in the same way without accountability to anyone. The opposite, they argue, is to encourage the ‘lameculism’ of teachers to students and lower standards. They stay so comfortable.

In Spain it is very typical that if there are doubts about how phenomena can be measured or if they are counterproductive, it is better not to do anything about it. A Mediterranean country more, it is said, although there are universities like the Pompeu Fabra where students are passed evaluations and taken into account. But they are the exception.

In much of the world is the opposite. It is understood that having a good university depends on having good teachers and that it is good to evaluate them from time to time. Something that seems logical. Without renouncing doubt as a method, forms of teacher evaluation are continually evaluated, renewed, changed, perfected and, in the end, there is relative dissatisfaction and recognition that there is no perfect way to do it. But it does not occur to them to stop trying or find other methods that give better results.

In American universities, the point is reached that student evaluations are usually the main yardstick used by the different department committees (together with publications) and the faculty to determine if a teacher deserves to be promoted or not. . They are usually reviewed every one or two years depending on the center.

It is appropriate because of the publication of a study by the University of California at Berkeley , entitled “An evaluation of the evaluations of the courses”, which puts the system of the students’ evaluation of teachers to work, mainly due to the fact that they are very few who answer and are usually those who love or hate the teacher and not the, say, middle class of the student body.

Prohibitions
The forbidden “good ones” are those that give the child the “frame” without which he can not live. The “bad” are those who “break” his personality because they respect neither his rhythms nor his desire. Those who tend to make him a docile object, subject to the arbitrariness of adults. Some examples from everyday life.

– Sleeping
We do not have to require a child to sleep if he is not sleepy … But we can force him to go at such time to his room. If he is not sleepy, he can play and he will sleep then but, once in his room, he does not come out anymore!

– Eating
We do not have to require a child to eat if he is not hungry or ingesting food that he hates. He is the only judge of his appetite and his tastes … But we do not have to do him every day meals ” la carte”. If he does not like a dish, he eats the rest.

– Dressing
A child can very well choose the shape and color of the clothes that will be bought. But the adult has the right to decide that one does not exceed that price, and to explain why.

– Work
From the preparatory course, the child can learn to organize. He can choose when he begins his work and by what duty he begins … But the adult has the right to demand that at this time, homework be completed so that we can take bath and eat. Etc.

Transgression
“If you keep going, it’ll go bad”

Any transgression deserves punishment, it is she who will give weight to words. If you just threaten, you lose credibility. The child himself is relieved when the punishment falls, explains Patrick Delaroche in “Parents, dare to say no!” (1), because it allows him to repair his “fault” and free him from his guilt. Of course, it is better to punish as intelligently as possible. To copy a hundred times “I will not lie anymore” is useless. On the other hand, to clean up what he has soiled, to repay what he has stolen, to do a task of family interest, etc., that is who is trainer. Diane Drory, in “Cree and Punishments” (2), specifies that a child must be clearly warned of the consequences of his actions. If he transgress, it is in all knowledge. If, exceptionally, the penalty is lifted,

keeping track of the grades of the students who studied with the “best” teachers according to the students’ evaluations.

What they discovered was that the better the teachers looked in the eyes of the students, the worse grades those same students took in the classes they took later.

There are also quite a few serious studies like that of Beleche and his team that show that there is a correlation between good evaluations and student learning. We could spend hours quoting studies.

In any case, a common denominator of these is to advise the use of other methods such as the evaluation carried out by other colleagues or the revision of class materials by committees.

None of these methods is infallible but, without a doubt, the worst method is to not apply any of them and settle for what is happening in most public universities in Spain.
