Deliver Your News to the World Answers The Question: Are Good Article Views A Sign Of Article Marketing Success?

The popular article submission site,, offers valuable information on why good article views don’t always translate into more website traffic.


(Monday, 7 May 2012) York, UK – The successful article submission service, starts the blog with a quote from a reader who asks:

– “Over the last 6 months I’ve submitted 19 articles, and I can see from my statistics that I have over 1000 viewings total. However, I have not seen an increase in traffic to my website, nor sign ups to my newsletters etc. What can I do in regards to writing my articles, how many I submit etc to increase my traffic and article marketing success?” –

The article marketing strategies blog then states that article views are not the main indicator of article marketing success. Whilst writers should be encouraged by the number of people who are enjoying the article it would be wrong to focus on this too much when evaluating progress.

It is easy to assume that the more views there are on an article directory, the more traffic there should be to the website, but in reality those two things actually don’t correlate. asks: “If views on an article directory are not significant in determining article marketing success, then what is?”

Where a website is ranking for the keyword terms that are being targeted is the ultimate indication of how a site is progressing. The goal is to rank #1 for the keyword terms as this will generate more traffic to the website.

Traffic from articles is great, but search engine traffic is where the money is.

The difference between traffic from articles and traffic that comes from a high ranking on Google is like comparing a trickling faucet to Niagara Falls….

It is possible to influence a website ranking by doing consistent article submissions that target the specific keywords relevant to the website.

However, it is imperative that the same keyword in the HTML resource box is not used each time, as that can have negative effects in Google.
