This is not a method that has been written about previously, as far as I can see, although I’m sure it’s been done.
Post your article on Reddit. Now, it isn’t that simple. First, you need an account. Not just any account, people will ignore posts made by new accounts often. You need an account with “Karma”. This means that you have posted links or comments that have been upvoted.
People can tell that you are plugging your own articles, and may still read them, but in fewer numbers. If you constantly provide good information as well as informative comments and links, people are more likely to want to read your article.
The next step is knowing how to post it. You don’t always just post it once. There are thousands of “Subreddits”. For example, I posted an article about how to Use Your Android Phone to Improve Your Home Wifi Signal, and I posted it in /r/technology, /r/android, and /r/software. The /r/Android users tore it up, while the others shot it down. I still got about 500 views out of that one article, within 24 hours.
I posted 5 articles in one day, two days before I posted this. I posted three of them on Reddit. Those articles got 200-800 views each, while the others got less than 10 a piece. I used some SEO, got some backlinks, hundreds of tags on each of those other two, and that is how you keep the views coming, but to jump start it, as well as get a few backlinks, this is a great way to go.
That first day? Made $.69 off of those 3 articles via Triond, $1.17 from Adsense. that’s not horrible for about 20 minute’s work, especially not when those views will continue. I came back to Triond on that day, and was at 822 views. Three days later, I’m about to hit the 5,000 badge. Having 50K-100K views helps your exposure on Triond, as well.
Note: This method also works great with personal websites, blogs, and other sites similar to Triond.
