Now, if you want to build consistent traffic to your articles, targeting the search engines is one of the most attractive ways to do so.

I write a detailed guide about; Is Vocal+ membership worth it?
Following are the things you need to do to get more traffic on your Vocal articles;
1. Write a title based on Keyword research:
Some writers write a title just a combination of two words which is nobody is searching on the search engines and it is tough to get ranked for two words keywords. You have to write a title that more people are searching for, you could start learning keyword research online and apply it to your stories on Vocal Media. Two tools used for keyword research are SEMrush and AHREF.
2. Write high-quality content with proper placement of keyword:
When you have a keyword to write about, write a compiling title and subtitle and add a thumbnail. Start writing high-quality content about the topic and place or repeat your primary keyword in the body of your article. If you are writing a 1,000 words article then your keyword density should be less than 2.5% which means you can repeat the keyword less than 25 times.
This will helps you getting evergreen reads on your Vocal stories and it will make your an hour work to more than $50. With time, your earning/hour rate will increase to over $100 because most of your stories will generate you money which will add up.
Share your content on Social Media: 9 Social media sites
You could use these 9 social media sites to share your content and can build yourself a steady read from these social media sites. You can share your content to Facebook groups, Reddit subreddits, Quora Spaces, as stories on Medium, sharing it on Twitter, Creating a Pin on Pinterest, Sharing your stories on your blog, Sharing your Vocal stories to Tumblr, and writing answers on Quora and share your Vocal stories.
There are two benefits of sharing your Vocal Media stories on social media; First, it will generate steady reads and some social media platforms will generate you thousands of organic reads. The second benefit is that when you share your content on social media then it is good for the search engine ranking as sharing your content on social media is one of the 200 search engine ranking factors.
One powerful package: Long-form content combined With Interlinking:
There are a lot of studies that have shown that long-form content like 2,000+ words blog posts rank easily on the Google search engine compared to normal 800 to 1,000 words articles. If you want to increase your chances to rank on the search engines then you have to find a keyword, repeat the keyword many times in your articles, and also write long-form content. This will make a perfect combo for getting evergreen traffic.
Interlinking is when you add a link to your already publish vocal stories into your new stories. Let say, one of your article getting ranked on Google search and you have added the links of already published stories on Vocal, this will help you to get 2 to 5 reads from a single reader. Vocal pays 6 cents/read to Vocal+ creators, so you will make $0.2 to $0.3 from a single reader.
