    This advice can be applied to other eZine sites but I will use one of the most popular sites as an example (Ezine Articles). You can build traffic from such eZine sites without even writing an article. Follow these steps:

    1. Run a search in EzineArticles and search for the some keywords related to your site (i.e. website hosting).
    2. You can see which ?website hosting? articles have received hundreds or even thousands of views. The more views, the better. Choose an article with a lot of views and look for the comments section.
    3. Add a comment that is not considered SPAM and that actually contributes a worthwhile statement about the article. The reason for doing this is because such comments are reviewed. After making your comment, add the url of your website hosting website (or something related to the keywords that you searched for).

    That is it?This is extremely simple and can get your url listed on MANY pages with a high amount of traffic. You don?t even have to write the article, just a simple comment!

    Hmmm, when searching I'm not seeing anything pertaining to how many views the article has had on EzineArticles. Seems like a more automated method would be alot easier.

    I just left a few comments and will see how this work. Your instructions are simple and to the point and I didn't have any trouble implementing them.

    You have to scroll down to see the quantity of views. Also, you can look to see the "Most Viewed" articles in a same or similar topic towards the bottom.

    Let me know how it works out. There is so much great advice on this forum, it is fun to give back (although my BH skills need some work).

    Its seems the comments that have URL's are directed back to the ezine article authors. I havent found one yet that has a link to a site.

    I see your point...the weird thing is that I've seen such url's before. I think that it must depend on the author's willingness to include your url. Maybe there is a way for forum members to share comments and allow links. Just a thought though...

    I've tried this before but never really thought about it as a way to get traffic. The only problem is that the comments are not below the article. You have to click a link at the top to go to the comments page, so I don't think it's viewed that often. Out of all the article directories, hardly anyone ever comments on EzineArticles. It might be better for backlinks then traffic. Maybe it could be used to backlink another EzineArticle you wrote for internal links which rank your article higher.

    I have submitted comments on ezinearticles
    Problem is no backlinks to your sites so what is the point
    The link goes to ezine author number blah

    And the amount of moderation that goes on is amzing

    Better to just submit your own articles
