JG Bankier (JGB) highlights an article from a Bepress journal called "The Cat is Out of the Bag: Orientalism, Anti-Blackness,

PlumX metrics indicate this article been downloaded over 300,000 times. It featured in many news stories.
JGB's tips:
1.) Publish regularly
2.) "Google indexing is critical"
3.) "Important to have accurate reporting and readership tools" [so you can see and demonstrate readership]
