Where do my AC page views come from?

I never actually thought this would be such a sketchy issue but after a recent forum discussion, I'm inclined to post this bit of information just to clarify this for some contributors.

People who get a descent amount of page views get them from search results via Google, Yahoo!, Bing, etc. 

There is a misconception around the block that the majority of page views come from other contributors within the Yahoo! Contributor Network and Associated Content family.  If that were the case, the likes of the millionaires (displayed in the sidebar) would mean that they were superheroes when it comes to networking.  Well, yeah, some of them might be, but you'd have to have millions and millions of followers to get those kind of results.  It's just not feasible.  Now, if you are slowly inching along on page views, this might be true in your case.  How do you get better page views on Associated Content?  You can always post your work in the "Workshop" section of the YCN forums.  In addition, you can click here for the page views topic within this blog.

If you're looking for quick money and a sudden rise to fame on the Yahoo! Contributor Network, you're in for a big surprise.  Networking helps, but ultimately, it's not gonna amount to much.  Learn SEO, dig in and take advice from other contributors, most of whom are more than willing to lend their knowledge and advice.
