If You Are Going To Use The Article Marketing Method There Are Some Basics All Articles Must Have

Nov 28, 2007
Articles are vastly underestimated by many online businesses today and the truth is that the benefits of marketing with articles is impossible to fully measure. Articles can make or break a site in terms of traffic and repeat visitors. In addition to other SEO factors and other methods of linking article marketing has developed into a major element in site building and earning profit from that site. In addition to the SEO benefits that articles provide by submitting them to article directories you also will benefit from direct click throughs from the articles themselves.

Many website owners have seen the results of using articles on their sites and for site promotion almost immediately. Original articles will help to get you higher rankings in the search engine results and the higher you rank in the search engines the more free organic traffic you will receive. Obviously this is the most desirable outcome since it opens up the potential for other income generating opportunities as well.

You can't just write anything though, you need to have some guidelines and the following tips will help you get moving in the right direction.

One tricky area in that of keywords, in the early days of article marketing you could just stuff keywords into articles and that would get you ranked, now that same practice can get you banned. The key now is to write more naturally and focus on certain niche keywords and their synonyms, for example, writing articles about a particular model of car or wristwatch. How to articles are in great demand and are very well liked by all. You want to be sure that the article has keywords related to your site so do your keyword research and use the right keywords in articles that you write.

As I mentioned previously, you cannot get by these days by just stuffing articles full of keywords the articles must actually be good sources of information in order to be picked up by the greatest number of possible syndicate networks and other websites. In addition to being entertaining and informative they also need to be written with good spelling and proper grammar which precludes one from relying on third world country rewriters in order to get articles written correctly.

Include as many facts, figures, and statistics as you can in your articles and you will also benefit in being seen as an expert in the field you are writing about. It will help them to trust you and the products and services you represent.

Lastly, you want to be sure to write a compelling resource box for the article. Some article directories are more limiting on how many links can be included in this but this is the whole key to your article. If you write and article and don't have the links back to the site you are seeking to promote with well chosen anchor text you have just wasted your time writing the article.
