When you use article marketing
effectively, you'll soon become recognized by others as an expert
in your particular niche.
Internet article marketing builds many
incoming back-links to your website which will benefit you with lots
more targeted visitors in the long run.
How Does Internet Article Marketing
As you know, the world wide web is made
up of many websites. These sites all contain content. People search
for content about a specific subject. They find the information by
using a search engine. What search engines do is 'spider' or 'crawl'
the internet visiting each page. They take this content and index it
using the descriptions and keywords found on the page.
The search engines are able to give you
the best information possible by carefully indexing and cataloging
what they find by using the information that they discovered when
they were crawling the internet. The information that they provide to
you has to closely relate to the search term that you used as well as
be accurate. When written well, articles are considered a very good
source of information.
If a website is to keep it's visitors
returning on a regular basis, the webmaster must provide their
visitors with interesting, timely, and accurate information. These
factors are vitally important for someone who maintains a website or
blog on a daily basis. If the webmaster wants to climb high and
remain there in the search results for his particular niche, he has
to post new information to his site every day.
I'm sure you can see that making posts
every day can take a lot of valuable time. So, in order to keep up,
the blogger supplements his content with quality articles written by
other people. They find these articles on article directories.
Ok, What Is An Article Directory?
An article directory is composed of a
big database of articles about a variety of subjects in a variety of
categories. People who write articles are encouraged to submit their
articles there. Webmasters, that's usually you- are able to gather
free articles for posting on their own websites as long as they
credit the original author by leaving the resource box intact
including the author's links. Article directories hold alot of
information about almost any subject that you can think up. There are
probably some subjects that you probably haven't even thought of that
you could find there.
You'll find specialized article
directories which only accept articles whose subject is about certain
niches such as computer technology, or skin care. You just need to
read the submission rules and each directory to see what is
permissible and what is not. Most topics are allowed as long as they
don't promote hate speech or advocate violence.
What Do I Get Back For Giving the
Articles that I've Written to an Article Directory?
At the end of each article there is a
place where the author can place his or her 'resource box'. This
resource box contains a short blurb of one or two sentences about the
author as well as a sentence or two with a link embedded pointing
them to the blog, or website of the author for more information
regarding the subject that the article was written about.
Submitting your articles to an article
directory has many benefits. You not only get free marketing from it,
but you get lots of exposure. You can turn yourself into an expert.
It creates a win-win situation for both you and the publishers that
get to use your articles.
Research is Important
Like any leg of internet marketing,
internet article marketing is not any different. You'll do some
research on the topic area of the articles that you intend to write.
This research is very easy to do. Visiting forums and visiting
websites which center around your chosen subject will provide you
with alot of information from which to write an article of between
Ok, Now That I've Written My Article,
You should post your article on your
own blog or put it on your website, first. Then wait for a couple of
weeks or a month until your article is crawled by the search engines.
You'll be able ton find out if your article has been indexed by
searching for your article's title in the search engines. When you
find it, then you can submit it to the article directories. The
reason you would want to do it this way is that you'll want to avoid
duplicate content possible.
