Once I managed to gain over 200,000 views over a 4 week period. Since then I have not achieved anything of such significance. The above simple post started to gain traction on the first day. So I spent a bit more effort to see whether I can drive it to reach 10,000 views. It took me 4 days, but gladly to see that it is not impossible to achieve such. Steps I took: Responded to comments.Spoke to others about it.When around 5,000 views, wrote an extensive post and linked back.Spoke to more.
