What do the “EasyPublish” and “Content Feed” stats mean?
Published By Google+

One of the exciting things for me after I publish an article is looking on our article directory and watching the stats change for my article.

I know, that might not sound like “excitement” to some folks, Â but when you’ve spent hours working on an article it’s like immediate gratification to see that people are viewing your article and picking it up for publication right off of the article directory.

Now, keep in mind, the stats on our directory only reflect the folks who are viewing and finding your article on our own directory, not every place that your article is published. Still it’s gratifying to see that people are enjoying your article.

What stats can you see on our article directory?

  • View
  • Easy Publish
  • Content Feed

What do these mean?

Great question!

Well, the View one is pretty simple–the number you see next to view is how many people have viewed your article on our own article directory.

The EasyPublish stat refers to how many views the EasyPublish page for the article in our article directory has received (this is an example of what an Easy Publish page looks like).

The Content Feed stat refers to the number of times the article has been viewed via the content feed (this is an example of what a content feed looks like).

How Can I Improve My Stats?

The EasyPublish stat will gradually go up over time, as may the Content Feed stat.

To improve the EasyPublish stat, if you have published the article on your own web site for example, you may wish to link to the EasyPublish page in our article directory as an easy way to enable visitors to your site to publish the article themselves.

The folks who use the “easy publish” feature are publishing the article either to an ezine or to a website or blog. You’ll see at the top it says “Formatted to characters-per-line (0 for unformatted)” and then there is the “Update” button. Well, this page makes it easy on a publisher because she can set the article at a specific number of characters per line before coping and pasting it.

So, if you were publishing an article from our directory to an ezine that had 45 characters per line, you would enter 45 in the formatting box, then press “Update”, then the article would automatically switch to being formatted for 45 characters per line. Once the article is formatted to the correct number of characters per line, you can copy and paste the info into wherever you’d like to publish it, whether it’s to your ezine, your website, your blog or wherever.

To improve the Content Feed stat, you may wish to install the content feed on your own web site, more details here.

    I have just copied and pasted my own most recent article to my blog following on from reading this most informative article of yours.

    I did not realise how easy this was as I have been manually putting some of my own articles on my blog on the odd ocassion. Now whenever I publish a new article my blog is automatically updated with fresh content, thus saving me a lot of time and effort.

    Thanks for a great piece of information.

    As far as, the ezine directories that the article is submitted to will I need to have a user id and password for each individual site.

    Hi Serena,

    At we use our own login id to submit to the vast majority of article directories on our list, or else we submit articles via alternative means, i.e. some have a ‘back door’ page we’re able to use but which isn’t publicly available.

    So, if you’re submitting through, you will only need to provide a user ID and password for 7 directories–that’s a very small handful compared to all the directories on our publisher network.

  4. Steve,
    Can I submit articles that I’ve already written and published on my blog?
    Thank you,

    Hi Angela,

    Yes, you can, but I would advise that you rework the content so that your articles are different from your original blog posts. That way you can keep the content on your own site unique, which is beneficial for your SEO.

    I rework my blog posts and submit them as articles. Doing a blog and an article marketing campaign together is like killing two birds with one stone. There is a little bit of extra work that goes into doing the re-write, but it’s not so bad.
