Writing Articles to Increase Traffic to Your Website

Aug 17, 2007
The most inexpensive way to get traffic to your website is by writing keyword rich articles and submitting them to article directories. Keep in mind that keyword rich does not mean low quality. You need to be sure that your article not only has the keywords that you want but also has quality content. The reason this is an inexpensive way to get traffic is because the only cost involved in writing articles is the time that you put into it, unless of course you pay someone to write the articles for you.

The first place people go to look for information is the internet. People search for information on the internet every day. When a keyword is typed in the search box of a search engine, the search engine will display a list of websites containing that keyword. Writing articles will put you in the search engines more quickly. These articles, therefore, will help to increase the traffic to your website.

Keep in mind that "content is king." If your article does not have the quality content that the person is searching for, they will keep searching and will not go to your website. The more pertinent information you put into your articles, the more likely that person will be to visit your site and ultimately make a purchase.

By writing high quality content articles, you are letting people know that you have knowledge about the product you are selling and want to help them by sharing that knowledge. People are more inclined to buy from the person who makes them feel the most confident, and knowledge builds confidence. Just remember that "content is king" and so make your articles as informative and full of quality content as possible and you will earn their confidence.

The likelihood of your website being crawled by the search engines increases by the number of articles that you submit to the article directories. Be sure to submit your articles to two or more article directories. At the end of your article you will want to insert a resource box that includes your byline and a link to your website. Always post your articles on your website along with one or two articles that you have not submitted to the article directories. This will provide unique information for the search engines to crawl and will help your search engine position.

The websites that use your articles will be providing one way backlinks to your site from the URL you listed in your resource box. You will also obtain one way backlinks to your website from the article directories when they post your article on their site. Your website will obtain traffic from these backlinks.

Just remember, the higher in quality content your articles are, the more the search engines will like your site when they are crawled. The more the search engines like your site, the higher your site will rank in the search engines. The higher you rank in the search engines, the more traffic will come to your site. This will all lead to more sales and profit for you.
