There is one thing that you as a writer should never under estimate. Never think that your old articles are useless. They are as good as the new ones.You just need a proper strategy to monetize them. Here we are just going to discuss some of those strategies that can help boost traffic as well as revenue for you. I hope you guys seriously follow them:
1) Quality: This is the very important factor for any kind of article to gain mass traffic. Remember that nobody will read your article and recommend it to others if it is not properly written and if it is not to the point. Apart from this always ensure that your article is fresh, original, in proper English, free of all the spelling and grammatical errors and properly cited.
2) Promotion: Once you have written your article, it is time to promote it. Now there are two types of promotions: long term promotion and instant promotion. Instant promotion as the name suggests gains you good amount of visitors in a short period of time using the sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon, Digg, etc. However this kind of traffic lives for very short time period. The better method is to promote your articles using much stable methods which keep on generating traffic to your articles for longer time period. This includes SEO (search engine optimization), backlinking, blogging, word of mouth promotion , etc.
3) Internal linking: Do you write around the same subject in more than one article? Then you should make proper use of internal linking method. By this term, we mean that whenever you write about the same subject in more than one article, you should always link an old article from the fresh one. While doing this, please make use of anchor tags, so that search engines can properly read your links and rank them higher in their results. While Internal linking is a good strategy to boost up your search engine rankings, you are suggested not to overly do it as it could spoil your search engine rankings either as search engines are smart enough these days and they will consider your this action as spam thus degrading your article value.
