Boosting Your Traffic Through Free Article Directories

Feb 16, 2008
Websites + Traffic + Ads/Products = Money. Each veteran internet market webmaster and blogger would certainly agree to this simple equation. Following this simple equation is all it takes to make money online.

Now that you've got a website how do you bring traffic in? There are thousands of ways to do this. There are ways that requires you to burn money and there are ways wherein you can do it for free.

It is quite obvious that most of us would want to bring in traffic for free. But how do you do it ?One way to do it is to write valuable articles for free. Submitting articles to free directories helps propel you to fame all over the internet. Add to the fact that others who have a website will use your free article by placing it in their blog or sites. This way you get free advertisement as these sites allows you to post your authors biography. Plus you get a back link to your site. After several weeks or months, these backward links will eventually increase, helping your site attain a much higher ranking.

Not all backward links to your site are valuable. Search engines give more value to links to your site from other sites whose content are somehow related to your site. Writing free valuable articles are so much better in promoting your site than random link exchange programs or other methods or ways of trying to improve your sites ratings since most likely web masters will only try to feature articles that they feel are related to their sites.

My blog is less than 3 months old as of the time the writing of this article but I have submitted more than a dozen articles already to different article hubs. That is why I got a Google page rank of 2 (P.R - 2) even if my site is only less than 3 months old. Some sites have been there for more than year yet they barely make it to P.R - 1. What is worse is that other sites are still at P.R - 0.

However take note that it may cost you some time when submit your articles to free article archives. But in the end your sacrifices is sure to pay off.
