Use Article Marketing to Create an Avalanche of Online Traffic

May 8, 2008
To keep the costs of your internet business down but at the same time improve the number of visitors your get to your site you need to seriously consider article marketing. People searching for a particular subject ca find your article listed in a number of places and then follow the link(s) it contains back to your main site. It is a simple matter to submit your article to these places which should, wherever possible, be popular websites; an increase in visitors to your site should happen quite quickly. Large, well visited sites are generally trusted so if your content is accepted, it should improve your reputation as well; you will become a 'trusted' person which means a great deal in the virtual world.

Article marketing carried out this way (i.e. more than once) will get people to look upon you as an author whose work they will seek out because the content is good. Showing people you are knowledgeable on certain topics means they will trust whatever you write and bookmark your site. Although it can take a while, this traffic from people that trust you will help your own search engine ranking; you should find that in time that more visitors that have found you in the search engines improves. The benefit of all these sites linking to your site is a increase in your ranking; the greatest benefit of this is none of it is costing you a single dollar!

A number of links to other relevant sites can be placed in the body text (not too many) when using article marketing. When your articles are good, they get spread around the internet and of course each version will have links back to your own so the more links you have, the more your ranking will grow. It is not unusual for Google and other search engines to take months before they start to list a website. Although you cannot rush the search engines directly, submitting more articles and using the authority sites will help enormously.

Article marketing helps to improving the ranking of a site but in addition to this it also helps increase the amount of content at the same time which again improves rank. Bear in mind that when people visit your site, they are unlikely to want your product without learning more about it. Visitors are searching for information so the more precise and truthful you can be about whatever it is you are promoting the better. Once you have them on your site you can show them the benefits of what you are promoting. This approach is often overlooked and as a consequence visitors do not always understand what is being done. It is this sort of method that stops people from cancelling their order a few days later.

If you want visitors to your websites then you must continue your article marketing this way; this does require you to understand that all of this cannot be achieved with just one article. Remember, if you have an interesting site you will also receive links from other website owners who may also use your article as well; your content or article will have information that other people are seeking. You cannot dismiss just how effective article marketing is at getting people to your site for free; provided you keep adding unique, but relevant, content to your site, visitors will return.
