Just passed 1MIllion views on Dev.to

Hello guys!

This week it was quite nice to see that my dashboard shows 1MIllion+ (all-time) views for all articles published here on Dev. I will mention TOP-5 articles that helped me to reach this unexpected milestone:



A few things that I've learned during the process:

  • Don't SPAM, play fair & help others
  • Be consistent and constantly publish new content
  • Research the topic before writing about it
  • SEO is important
  • Visual part of the content is important
  • Allocate time and respond to (all) comments

Thank you! Feel free to AMA in the comments section.


P.S. Here is my Twitter account where I publish 99% open-source related content.

Congrats on your big achievement man! ❀️️ One question if I could ask, How do you do the SEO of your content? Any insights that you can share?

Ty Motabar!
A keyword research on Semrush is usually the first step. Might be a good idea to focus on keyword with less competition and gain traffic faster.
Reddit has a great & supportive community where many SEO-related use-cases are discussed.
