Supercharge Your Website Traffic By Submitting Articles

Jun 7, 2008
Obviously you would like to raise the amount of your website visitors, otherwise you wouldn't be here reading this article. But you are here reading, so I take it to mean that you want your website to get more exposure online and you want to drive additional traffic to it. Article writing is a proven strategy to increase website traffic, and a keystone to any traffic campaign. Best of all, it's virtually free. Submitting articles for publication definitely helps your site to get both a better ranking and better placement in the major search engine results.

Article writing is also a good way to establish credibility online. Writing quality articles for content websites is quite a bit different than writing say, magazines articles: it is much easier to both do and get results. In fact, there isn't an easier method to obtain a one way link and generate a steady stream of visitors to your website.

The simplest method to begin is to have a look at published articles on the same subject that you would like to write about. As with any subject these days, there is plenty of good advice on article writing available, you just have to do a simple search for it. Article writing is entirely enjoyable for some, while others find it difficult and draining.

Nearly every article directory online will allow you to include a resource box which you put at the end of your article. It should include a short author bio and absolutely must also include your website url, because this is the link through which you can develop traffic from your articles. This reason for this increased traffic is two-fold: you'll get direct visitors who read the article and click the link in the resource box at the end. And since one of the large factors that Google uses in its determination of where to rank a website is backlinks, you'll get more traffic from Google because of the link in the resource box.

The good news is that there many hundreds of article submission sites on the internet. By submitting your well-written, interesting articles to these types of websites, you are almost guaranteed to receive some traffic for your website.

However, submitting your article to each site one at a time would be incredibly time consuming as well as counterproductive. There are article submission services that will handle the process for you. To find these, simply search for article submission service. If you steadily submit one or two quality articles per week, your website will get more backlinks, wider exposure, a higher ranking in Google, and all of these will lead to steady increases in website traffic.
