Dear Members, why some of you didn’t participate in the article contest?The article contest on 'How to become .." has ended.
I am initiating this thread to elicit the actual feedback from members who participated and not participated even though they noticed the announcement.
My intention is to remind and make aware that article writing contests are a good opportunity to write articles and earn, for those who do not have knowledge about key words and SEO parameters. I am one such member. I do not know about SEO, keywords and bringing traffic. Hence I have written very less number of articles. Majority of them are for article contests. As far as possible I participate in such contests.
I have seen many members write articles otherwise but not seen them participate in this contest.I have also seen potential writers posting forum threads. They could have written a couple of articles at least in this contest.
Article contests (which were earlier announced as keyword based resource contests) are announced on topics with keywords researched and found with trending traffic. Hence the writers need not worry about searching for a suitable keyword that will fetch traffic in the coming days or weeks. It is relatively easy for members to write on a selected topic rather than write on some topics which may or may not fetch readers and traffic.
So I request members to participate in contests where a keyword or topic is given for writing forum threads or articles. These have more probability fetching cash credits, even if not selected for a prize. AdSense probability also may be better. So good participation with quality contribution in such contests is beneficial to members and ISC .
