I feel that some of your post are very condescending to the less enlightened as myself so as nicely as I can ask will you not reply to any more of my post.
    Woah! David has been a valuable asset to the SSWT forums and I personally have never seen any posts you speak of. Sorry if you feel that way. If you don't understand something please do feel free to ask for an explanation but this is an open forum so anyone can reply to any post here to try to help. Maybe it was just a misunderstanding?

    I speak more from rote than experience at this point, so I welcome any experienced insights. I have noticed that some article writers seem to do well by establishing a strong reputation. And, of course, responses always vary from one market to another. One thing about article marketing is that it's easy to test different approaches.

    I just looked up your all of your articles in both niches mentioned (base on those titles). Your web hosting articles are getting very low view counts. While article views vary widely for even the long time pros, you've got enough of these up to suggest a consistent problem. I can only think that it's either because your keywords do not get enough traffic or the titles are not appealing to the market. The weight loss niche is very competitive and it might just take sticking to it for long enough. Study your competitors for clues.

    Successful article marketing often seems to take stamina. I was looking at an author the other day with almost 2000 articles. Most were getting less than 100 views per month. But a few of them were getting over 10,000 views/month. Some say it's a numbers game and that might be right.

    "why beginners choose Host Monster" is also not a very popular search term so although that article is number 1 in google, no one is looking for it.

    Web hosting is a very competetive field, as I am sure you are aware, and you will need to gain the trust of visitors when they get to your site, or give them a really compelling reason to gclick to the merchant. Unfortunatley trust takes time to build up and that is a whole different question to the one you asked originally!

    I would try different typse of articles, with different slants, different titles etc and see what works. Can you write an article in a different niche that might appeal - say easy webhosting for hobbycrafters? something that will make what you do differetnt to what every other webhost promoter is doing?

    Thanks Wade and Baggs for taking the time to look at the articles. You are right Wade there is a problem with the articles. The keywords I went for had decent searches and I used the keyword phase in my titles. I think you are right the titles are not appealing enough and I am looking at other authors to see what I'm missing. Baggs I like the ideal about hobbycrafters. When you talk about trust should I have said that the hosted by hostmonster was for my wife since the landing page was on blogger?
    Thanks again to both of you this IM seems very hard for me to get right but with help I will in time.

    Baggs, somehow I missed this post yesterday. This is very sage advice - outstanding advice, actually. And you're absolutely right about differentiating yourself from the competition.

    Good job!

    Hey Jerry,

    I am not finding your articles. Can you give us a list of links to each article here in the forum. I even looked to see if they were linking to your blogger blog but it is showing ZERO backlinks from outside your site - which is odd as you say you're doing article marketing and linking them back to that blog.

    I checked the backlinks here, in Yahoo Site Explorer:

    My advice: Find something you're a little more interested in, and a little more experienced with. Web Hosting is a cut throat niche to be in, and there are much easier markets to work in...

    Thanks Lynn I guess I bit off my than I can chew. Maybe web hosting and weight loss are too much for a newbie.

    Thanks again
