Article marketing....how to make it work?

Postby jimmychuang » Wed Mar 26, 2008 12:46 am

Hi,
I just began to submit articles, by far I have submitted 13 articles to several article sites.

But I have not see any results. I didn't get backlinks, I didn't get any traffic.

I use Google Analytic to track my site stat, but I have not see any traffic come from other sources except aweber.(I guess only me visit my website).

My articles got approved by many article sites, but no traffic? Is it because of something I doing wrong with Google Analytic? But I did put the code on all my web pages.

By the way, I found my squeeze page just indexed by Google. But how do I really get traffic and increase page rank from article marketing?

Hi Jimmy!

I don't know exactly what you did in your articles, but did you use keywords that you used for your site?

It's very important to use your sites keywords correctly in the articles you submit. Here are some key places to use them in your article:

Title - Use your main keywords in the title of your article

Top - Also make sure to use your keyword in the first paragraph

Body - Try to sprinkle your keywords throughout the body of your article - don't keyword spam, though!

End- I always try to use the keyword at the VERY END of my article as well. I don't know if this makes any difference, but I read that on your site you should have your keyword at the very bottom right of your page, so I use that theory with articles also.

Author Box - Create a great statement about your business here, along with a link to your site.

Also, submit your articles to GREAT sites that have high page rank such as Ezinearticles and Article Dashboard. I also like GoArticles, Searchwarp and Amazines.

Be patient - it took me about three months to get my home decor site ranked, and I was submitting 3 or 4 articles to about 10 directories every week! Work smart and keep a good attitude - it will work!

I hope this helps!

Excellent tips from Tess.

But here's the reality regarding human visitors to your site (vs. SEO benefits): Traffic from articles is not automatic.

The articles have to offer quality content that makes the reader want to see more of your stuff. And it needs to be well-written to give the perception that you're an expert in your niche.

If you post a link to one of your articles, maybe we can see if there's something you can improve?

Here is one of my article:

I have another question, if I submit the same article to 50 article directories, what will happen?

Also Jimmy...

13 articles really isn't going to have a huge impact...

Put a plan in place to produce 50 articles or more and submit them...following the guidelines written by Tess.

Keep writing man. Don't give up.

The other thing that i do is follow this format:
1. WRite the article
2. Next day submit to only wire
3. Wait 48 hrs and then submit to major article directories.

That is what I do and I am getting alot of backlinks to my articles...

Hope this helps ...and of course incorporate the great key word advice listed above!

One idea I heard that I thought was a great tip:
End your article with a note of suspense, as though it were part one of two parts. Then in the bio at the end of the article, mention that part two is available on your site, with a link to it.

Have articles one and two on your site, for visitors who came directly and would otherwise have no idea what part two was about.

Hey Carol - that tip is wonderful!

Can't believe I haven't thought of that - but my brain is already so full it doesn't have room for another thought :wink:

I will have to try that out - I LOVE writing articles!

Thanks for the idea

What a great idea to end your article with suspense and then perhaps make it two parts. I am off to try that this week!

Thanks thanks thanks

Here is another way
Write your article wait 24 hrs submit to onlywire.com

then wait another 48 hrs and submit to article directories.

It gives google time to spider it and it shows proof that you are the original author:-)

Excellent idea, Carol!

I'd also suggest that you write a small report on your topic, then create an article from that. The article should be a summary or small (but incomplete) piece of the larger report.

Your reader should finish the article wanting more information. And your bio box should link to where they can download the free report.

Of course, the free report should link back to your website and any related paid products that you have.

Hello dear jimmy chuang
Its Alita racheal here. look first of all you need to have aclear idea of what article marketing is? it is type of advertising in which businesses write short articles related to their respective industry. These articles are made available for distribution and publication in the marketplace. Each article contains a bio box and byline that include references and contact information for the author's business. With the rise of e-commerce and online marketing, article marketing has made a move to the online world as well. As in traditional forms of media, online article marketing has served the dual role of providing publishers with essentially free content and advertisers with essentially free advertising.
well written articles always have a positive impact obviously. You need to be specific while writing articles. you might have ben writing very long and irrelevant articles. If you can show me your articles somehow i would get a clearer idea and i will guide you better.
I am an SEO marketer by the way! would love to hear from you and find a possible solution for your problem.
