Get Free Traffic To Your Website

Aug 17, 2007
The Reason you need to submit articles is that it's a way of promoting your websites. You write an article (or set of articles is better - at least 10) on a subject that's related to your site, then put them on as many free article sites as you can, i.e. you give them away.

At the bottom of your article, you are allowed to put a link back to your site. The search engines then pick up all these one way back links to your site and eventually you are seen as important enough to start directing traffic there.

Also, the article sites are frequented by webmasters looking for suitable articles to publish on their own sites and to their ezines. Part of the deal in allowing them to publish is that they include the link back to your site. Decent ezines get archived as web pages, and so you end up with permanent one way links back to your site.

So you are now getting traffic from four sources. From the free article directory sites, from websites where webmasters publish your articles, from ezines (and eventually website archives), and finally from the search engines.
