Momentum is continuing today also. Knol author now need benchmark their page performance with one page view per day per Knol in Google Analytics statistics. Knol has 600,000 knols and if such a bench mark is attained, Knol will have 600,000 page views per day and 18 million page views per month. But present monthly estimate of page views is only 10 million. We need more knol authors who claim loudly, I get more than one page view per knol per day. Why are you not trying?

Authors who achieved have to encourage others also to achieve the reasonable benchmark.

Knol has good content that is attracting good number of visitors and page views. Knol authors have to write more and promote more. We have to remember Knol is not a homepage based article platform. It is search based platform. Unless authors do search engine marketing, which is marketing their articles to search engines, traffic will not come to them. Only authors have to do it, as Knol has no marketing activity for Knol right from the start.

Now many authors are giving Twitter messages on their knols and getting the benefits of it.

Knol is having traction. Knol visitors and page view numbers are increasing for the last four months in both Google analytics and Knol counter.

30.12.2010 is happy that it is getting 8 million pages per month. According to my previous calculations, Knol must be getting more than 8 million page views now. I keep on harping upon one million knols. In the recent days on many days around 900 new knols are getting posted and this number can be help in increasing the number of knols quickly to one million knols.
100 knol books initiated by NRao List of Knol Books by Narayana Rao K.V.S.S. Knol book is a concept to collect good knols on a subject, arrange them chapter-wise and present them to readers for easy reading. Quality and serious content on knol can be supported through subject knol books. Even if 10% of the content on Knol is supported by serious knol authors, Knol platform will prosper. Problem in not irrelevant content posted by marketing-oriented writers, problem is lack of support to serious content by at least 100 to 200 authors. If 100 to 200 authors engage themselves in identifying and promoting serious content on Knol, Knol will get ahead in much better fashion. Useful and value adding content has to be the focus. Any writer who writes on interesting topics needs to be encouraged and supported with technical help as needed.
