Linda Louise Johnson, in her article, My Analysis of MY Best Loved Associated Content /Yahoo! Articles and Why They Have Such Page View Pizazz, refers to Leroy Coffie’s article, To All Associated Content Writers: What Are Your Top Five Articles on Associated Content? in which he asks fellow Associated Content writers to submit their top 5 page view earners. He hopes this information will help other writers determine what types of articles compel readers to read them.
So I have taken the Mr. Coffie challenge, promoted by Ms. Johnson, and have written this article where I list MY articles with the highest page view numbers. All of the page view numbers are recorded as of 10-10-10.
Scams on Craigslist.com: 2,657 Page Views
After placing ads on craigslist, I was surprised by the HUGE number of scam artists who approached me. After researching these annoying and sometimes injurious scammers, I discovered just how widespread the problem is. While I still use and explore craigslist, I know how to recognize and steer clear of the scammers. I also created some of my own form letters, which I send to scammers. One if them appears at the end of the article.
47 Ways to Build Your Child’s (and Your) Self Esteem: 3,409 Page Views
When my children were in grammar school, I presented a pilot self-esteem program to their school principal. He dismissed it, never looked at it, and told me that self-esteem was already integrated into their teaching. I saved the pilot program and presented it in this article.
Noah’s Ark Found on Mt. Ararat?: 3,584 Page Views
The thought that anything biblical could appear in tangible form in the 21st Century caused me to research this article. I’m very interested in anything that proves the existence of what some people believe to be only stories.
The Acai Berry – Grow Your Own Acai Palm Tree: 6,461 Page Views
The Acai Berry has garnered a lot of attention over the years, and to be honest, I had a feeling I might get more than my fair share of page views by writing about this subject, so when I discovered that people around the globe could grow their own trees in their own homes, I had to write about it.
Ted Bundy and Me: 7,033 Page Views
Interestingly, because I didn’t know how Associated Content worked when I presented my first article, Ted Bundy and Me, I asked for upfront payment. However, Associated Content denied upfront payment on the grounds that not many people would be looking in search engines for this type of information. You can imagine my surprise at the number of people who found this article.
INCEST – Diary of An Incest Survivor-Part I: 8,687 Page Views
Though this article is a two-parter, Part I garnered the most page views. The article is written in diary format. I walk the reader through the life of an incest survivor (who is actually a compilation of numerous incest survivors), where I combine several years’ worth of incest into one week.
There you have it. Those are my top 5 page view earners. I now pass the Mr. Coffie challenge on to you.
