That’s not completely true unless they’ve changed something. I have a lot of views on an article that I wrote that isn’t part of a medium publication. It’s probably easier to do that, but it’s not necessary.
Not always true, ok, but I was quite impressed by the stats of my 3 last articles on Medium. I will let you guess which one I did not publish via a Medium publication.
Articles 1 and 3 required a lot of efforts to write, article 2 was an easy one. As you can see the stats are not proportional to that metrics.
