Article Marketing Tips

By

Article marketing is a very powerful tool that if used correctly can generate a lot of traffic for your website. Every business writes articles, and it is the cheapest and easiest way to draw high amounts of traffic to your site FREE of charge. The key though to article marketing is writing good content, and optimizing it for the search engines.

One major reason why people fail to use article marketing is because it takes time, and can be a slow process in the beginning. However once you’ve written a number of articles you’ll start to get use to the whole process, and you might even find shortcuts to help speed up the process.

How To Write Articles

A lot of people have no clue what to write about. So what you first need to do is think of something you want to write about. A few good and easy things to write are things like reviews, and how to guides. Once you come up with a good topic we suggest you go out and research your topic so that you can learn as much about it as you can before you write about it. You can accomplish this by going out and reading other peoples articles, or by doing a Google search on your topic.

(Tip: Write about stuff you already know to save time)

Now the thing people love to see in a good article is content that is informational, and gives them good advice. Never try to sell anything in your article. Give advice and good solid information. Most people hate to read things that try to sell something to them. The more information you can provide someone the better your article will be.

(Note: When writing your article make it at least 400 words so all the article directories will be able to use it)

How Many Articles Should You Write?

The number of articles you write defiantly plays a factor into the amount of traffic you will be sending to your site. If you only write a couple of articles you’re probably not going to see a whole lot of traffic going to your website. However if you wrote between 50 to 100 articles you’ll start to see a good amount of traffic come in from your articles.

We recommend that you try to write 2 to 5 articles per week. We try to write one per day. The more articles you can write the better off you’ll be. Also remember article marketing starts off slow but once you have written a high number of articles it really starts to take off, and you’ll see your site getting some good traffic.

Why Should You Use Article Marketing?

For starters article marketing is free, and it works! If you have little or no budget article marketing is the perfect place for you to start marketing your business. This is exactly what we did when we first started to work online.

One other reason why you should write articles is because they will get picked up by search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, AOL etc. When this happens watch out! Your articles can go through the roof and catch fire and start drawing in crazy amounts of traffic to your site.

How To Optimize Your Article For Search Engines

Here are some ways to help optimize your articles to get them ranked in the search engines.

    • Pick one keyword that you wish to target

    • Use the keyword you picked at least 5 or more times in your article

    • BOLD, ITALIC, and UNDERLINE the keyword at least two or three times

    • Use the keyword at the top of your page and at the bottom

    • Use the keyword in your link back to your web site.
