Article Marketing: Supplying Quality Content Will Always Drive Traffic
Quality Article Marketing is a surefire method of attracting traffic to your website. Most folks just starting out in Internet Marketing will find that they have more Time, than they do Money, to invest in their website promotion.
There are basically 2 methods of marketing your articles:
1) Writing articles, reviews, and commentaries and posting them to
your blog or website.
2) Piggybacking your articles on high page rank article directories,
blogs and websites.
The first method is a given. Writing your own unique content for your blog or website is essential for any marketer. However if you limit yourself to this exclusively, you will miss out on the lions share of the available traffic out there.
By syndicating your articles to several different online sources, you are creating tons of links back to your site. Links back = traffic back. That’s the goal here. By “piggybacking” your articles to high PR sites, you will be able to filter traffic from those sites to yours.
The real perks of this traffic is:
1) It’s FREE
2) It is Targeted. They are coming to your site,
because they already read something of yours, and they want
to know more.
Let’s take EzineArticles.com for example. This directory has a high page rank with Google, and a great Alexa rating. By submitting an original, quality and content rich article to EzineArticles.com you guarantee yourself some visits from the readership of this directory. This directory alone has several thousands of visitors on a daily basis. That is a LOT of potential eyeballs to view your article. Several of these are going to click the link you provide in your Bio.
Another perk to submitting to article directories is the potential for your article to get picked out by an Ezine Publisher, and placed in their Ezine. Again this is choice targeted traffic that is interested in what you have written, and are looking for more.
The top 5 High PR Article Directories I recommend are:
One thing that you want to avoid is blasting the same article out there to 50 different directories. The search engines do NOT like this, as it creates a bunch of duplicate content. Your standing in the search engine rankings will suffer as a result. It is suggested that you stick to submitting to only 4 or 5 top directories, and that if you are using the same article, take the time to create 4 or 5 different variations of that article that are at least 50 to 70 % different in content from each other. This will assure you that you avoid duplicate content penalties.
Article Marketing is a surefire method to attract free traffic for you. But you have got to be willing to spend your time and effort as the “currency” to pay for this traffic.
Do in depth research on your subject. Know what it is you are talking about. Make it useful to people, so that they will want to come to you for more information. Write clearly and plainly. You are not writing a Thesis for an Oxford Scholarship here. For 99 percent of your readers will be average everyday people like yourself.
USE YOUR SPELLCHECKER!!! There is nothing more unprofessional than an article full of misspelled words, and grammatical errors.
