Why Writing Articles Is One Of The Fastest Ways To Earn On The Internet

Nov 30, 2007
Many people when they set up their websites are at a loss at how to bring traffic to them. For some it is also a matter of cost so it is crucial to find ways to promote the sites that are free or at least very cost effective. One of the best methods for website promotion is actually free, it's called Article Marketing.

The way that this marketing method works is to write articles that are related to the subject matter or content of your website and then post them to article directories at no cost. This site promotion method is easy to do, doesn't take a lot of time, and can give you immediate traffic.

The article directories allow you to include a resource box at the bottom of your article that contains the link back to your website along with your chosen keywords or tags which is known as "anchor text". Many people who read the articles may be curious and visit the site you are including in your resource box, this is why it is good to write articles that are interesting and also stimulate or motivate people to visit your sites.

Article directories also serve as syndicate networks that pass on your articles to other sites. Many people use these to add content to their own websites because they don't have time to write the content themselves and adding the articles is a simple and effective way to do it. They also keep the resource box which gives you more back links to your site and more opportunities for other people to click your site.

As you write more articles and the number of sites linking back increases in number and diversity appearing on article sites, as well as other websites all over the internet. I personally have over 200,000 articles indexed in my name and since I have written and submitted less than two thousand this shows the power of article marketing. This method is excellent for getting back links to your websites which gives you that much more relevance in the search engines.

No matter what type of product or service you are promoting you can benefit by writing articles. The key is to get large numbers of your articles syndicated or published across the web. I have some articles that have been published on other websites several thousand times which is giving me great exposure for the site in that resource box.

Many people searching on the internet are seeking answers to questions or more information on a particular subject. If you are able to supply them with what they are seeking in the way of information they are more likely to click a link in the resource box and go to the site that you want to promote. So in addition to the SEO benefit of writing articles for back links you also benefit from direct sales as well.
