Why are my articles having similar page views paying out differently?

Views from different countries get paid different amounts. Reads from developed countries generally yield a higher revenue. Hence, articles having similar views but from different geographies will have different payouts.

How can I improve my earnings?

Firstly, do not make earnings your priority when you write stories. You will only be able to improve your earnings when you improve your writing. Gizmr’s audience seeks really high-quality, engaging and trustworthy content. So as a first step, try to meet these criteria. Here are a few things you can work on to ensure that your articles are widely read:

1) Put the readers above yourself. Understand their aspirations and what moves them. Connect with them through your writing.

2) Write for your audience. Always ask yourself two questions. Am I creating value to my audience? Am I telling them something new? If the answer for either of the two questions is “No”, then rethink your topic.

3) Write better. Improve your grammar and writing style. Language is a powerful tool, use it well. A great thought that is not well written will only put off the readers. Install Grammarly extension for Chrome to remove basic errors easily.

4) Write for the digital medium. Your audience is mobile with very short attention spans. Use shorter sentences. Don’t write long and confusing sentences. Be crisp. Be concise. Keep it simple.

5) Write innovative topics. If you spot a topic that has already received good views, there is no point in attempting it again. Doing the same thing over and over again will not help you. Keep innovating and experimenting.

6) Research well. Being superficial and repeating the facts that your audience already knows is counter-productive. Try to dive deeper into a subject and inform audiences about something they don’t know.
