How To Use Article Writing and Article Directories To Your Advantage

Aug 17, 2007
Marketing your business by writing and submitting articles is a great way to build credibility and to drive traffic to your website or blog. As long as you write a quality article you will get readers for it if you submit your article to the right places. This means finding the best article directories and submitting it to those. Let's look closer at how to use your articles and article directories to your benefit.

There are literally thousands of article directories, but that does not mean you will get much benefit from many of those. Submitting to article directories that have a PR3 or higher is a good place to start. Use this as the cut off and you will increase your link popularity and increase the popularity of your website in the eyes of the search engines.

You may even want to consider creating your own list of 5 to 10 of your favorite directories and submit to them. Rewriting your article a little each time you submit it has become a good idea. There is so much emphasis being placed on duplicate content that there really is no reason to chance losing the value of an article because you submit the same one over and over to several different directories.

Another important point is how you submit you article. Article directories are very easy to get along with if you play by their rules. They want to publish your articles, especially if you write with a fresh, unique style and provide content that is timely.

If you use private label right articles you need to spend some time and rewrite those as well. Although PLR articles may only be used by a few hundred publishers a month it still is not unique content. To make it unique consider changing the primary keyword and other keywords accordingly. You can re-order anything written in a list style. It is a good idea to change phrases.

When you are done you want to see and article that does not resemble the one you started with. This will include changing the title and making sure your first and last paragraph are different for sure.

An even better idea is to use PLR articles for ideas and then write and article in your own style. This does not mean rewrite the article at all. You are writing an original article in your words and it ends up being a brand new fresh article that you can be completely confident will never be considered duplicate content.
