More Page Views
Page views are one of the key statistics of success on Infobarrel. Not only are page views related to Google Adsense revenue, but it is an indicator of a job well done for the writer.
Write Good Articles
Actually, page views are directly correlated to the quality of your writing. A page view, after all, is just a click - they don't even need to read it. So fear not if you believe you're writing just won't permit a blockbuster article. I've personally seen plenty of sub-par articles that have up to 1000 views. That said, it sure helps to have quality material. Solid articles spread among the internet community without your involvement. My advice is to simply do your best. Edit, edit and edit some more. Spruce up your article by adding pictures. With time, your writing will improve.
Choose a Good Title and Topic
When it comes to getting more page views it definitely helps to have a compelling title for a good topic. As the title is what the reader notices when clicking to your page, it needs to be perfect. First, I'll state the obvious: make sure your spelling and capital letters are correct. Then, make sure you have an attractive topic. It's somewhat disgusting, but sex is a topic that sells. Hence the photo of Tiger Woods to the right. Health and nutrition is another top-viewed subject. How to make money online is another topic that attracts readers. Controversy of any type is another topic that gets clicks. Top 10, top 20 or top anything lists are always a good sell too. Lastly, write about trending topics. This could mean, for example, writing about oil spills during the 2010 BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Another example is writing about Barack Obama during the election period. There are always trending topics that you can write a piece about. I must warn you, however, that the trends do die down, and with that, your page views will drop.
Search Engine Optimizaton (SEO)
One important aspect is SEO. You need to learn how to get your articles on the first page of Google. This means lots of repeated keywords and choosing a topic that isn't overly popular. SEO is well covered in many other infobarrel articles in addition to other websites.
Once you have chosen a good topic and composed a decent article with SEO in mind, you need to market your article. Backlinking is one such option. Basically, you have other sites link to your article. Another option is to advertise your article through social media, including Twitter and Facebook. Internet forums and Yahoo Answers are two other mediums for spreading your article. You can also aspire to get an article featured on Infobarrel's homepage.
Put a link to your Infobarrel account in the signature of your email. That was, friends, family and coworkers will check out your articles.

Write More Articles
In general, you shouldn't be overly concerned with page views. The most important aspect is to simply write. As a beginner, it is said that 95% of your time should be spend writing articles. Just keep plugging away and the page views will come. Look at your AdSense account to see which articles are succeeding (make sure you enter channels). You'll be surprised as to what attracts page views. You will learn how to duplicate your own success. As Infobarrel grows and your account matures, your page views will encounter the "snowball effect" and grow rapidly. So be patient, and keep writing.
