    I have been submitting alot of articles to a site that pays you for each person who views an article, but Im having problems getting the big views comming in.

    I submit them to:
    Stumbleupon
    A facebook group with close to 500 members
    A facebook profile with 4000 friends
    Delicious
    Digg
    Tried out Link Vistor Request v.0.2

    The only thing that gives me more than xx visitors a day is Stumbleupon.
    I was gonna try out Myspace, but I need to get a bunch of friends/followers there first(is there a quick way to do this)

    The number of articles are so high that building backlinks would be a b***, so that will be my last option.

    Is there any other sites you guys can recomend me to submit them to?

    I am using Triond. I know it isnt the best way to go, but I like the site and the community. Im up to around 200 visitors daily atm, but most of them are comming from inside Trionds community. I would guess that around 40-70 of them are comming from other sources. Stumbleupon on a huge first place, 2nd delicious, 3rd facebook and then google. deli, fb and google provides less than 5% of the traffic that Stumble does. But the annoying thing is that is seems stumble got a limit on how many links you can add everyday. I could always make several accounts, but Triond got a very nice way you can link your articles to those sites, so multiaccounting is out of the question.

    What I am really looking for is an article directory where you link to your articles insted of posting them there, or a good social networking site I can use. Or something blackhat stuff that can help me out

    I have a suggestion and a question:
    my suggestion - consider creating mass amounts of videos using text snippets, pictures and a video creation tool and then publishing them to video directories with the article links in them. it can bring you a lot of traffic if you create videos relating to a somewhat general niche and then link the videos to different articles.
    now my question - I'm not familiar with this pay per article view market , roughly estimating - how much do you get from an article view ? is there any geo limitations for the US or are you getting payed even if the views are for example from china ?

    Thanks
    Ron

    I am already making some money on dating and pay-per-download by using videos on youtube, so that can be a good idea. If I remember right, there is a mass youtube uploader somewhere here on BHW. You get around 1$ per 1k views, so it isnt much, but you can also add adsense to it, and after a while most of the income will go on autopilot.
    There is no geo limitation afaik. I live in Norway and can get my earnings by check, paypal and some other methods I can't remember atm

    Building tons of backlinks isn't hard with the power of the tool ScrapeBox.

    I checked out the article that gets the most views and found that its ranked 12 on google. I will try out some automated backlink tools here on BHW and see if it rankes even better, and maybe buy Scrapebox later if I get the money for it.

    I second the the scrapebox answer. I think that is the way to go.
