Have you ever wondered how some writers get 10K, 100K, and even 1 Million pageviews on a single blogpost?
I bet you’d want that for yourself.
When I started my career as a writer, I read all kinds of crap for learning how to write online - the styles, the structure, how to choose topics, and most importantly, how to cram in keywords so that people can find you on Google.
