Six Article Marketing Tips For Beginners

Article Marketing TipsArticle marketing is one of THEE best ways to generate fast and long term traffic online. What’s cool about article marketing is that it’s so flexible. So what exactly is article marketing? Well, it’s basically writing and submitting articles to a whole bunch of article directories for rapid online traffic. You can use it to build backlinks and or drive traffic to your website. A lot of the time article marketing is used to build backlinks via article directory resource boxes. While that’s a great approach to rank your site’s content and receive free traffic, there’s a better way to do it. Anyways, Article marketing’s so powerful that it “delivers” me tens of thousands of visitors every month! So I consider myself a fairly qualified individual in the article marketing field. So here are a couple of my personal article marketing tips:

1. Write an article and post it on your own domain! Yes, a very clever trick of mine that’s so top secret, I’ve been hiding it from the public for a long time! (hah, just kidding) It’s actually fairly obvious and a lot of article marketers do this. While some of these tips may be really obvious, it’s still good for clarification. (Sometimes it’s good to go back to the basics in order to see the big picture)

So you need to write your completely unique article of 500+ words and publish it on your own domain. Whether it be a corporate website or personal blog, doesn’t matter. The point is that you need to “originate” your article on your site before you submit it elsewhere.

When you publish the article on your site, Google sees it as completely unique and that you are the owner of the content. So when other sites are reposting your content and linking back to it, Google thinks you’re the authority. (more on that in a minute) Anyway, just post the article on your domain and optimize it to rank for a certain keyword. Of course, every article you publish must target a specific keyword.

2. Rewrite your article or if you find it easier, write another one. Same subject, same keyword. Now you want to publish this one to EzineArticles.com as they are thee article directory authority. You see, we can sponge off of EzineArticle’s domain authority and page rank to quickly rank our article on Google within a few days. If the competition is low and you optimize your EzineArticle, it will appear on the first page of Google within a week. Of course, at the bottom of your article you need to write an author resource box which links to the article on your site. The point of this is to hopefully rank the EzineArticle and rake in some extra traffic. It’s cool to have multiple listings on the front page of Google.

3. Spin your article! Completely spin the article like {this|this exactly|this text} until it’s around 30% unique. You can find a tool that’ll tell you how unique it is. People say that 30% is the bare minimum of uniqueness. If you’re lazy like me, you can outsource the spinning or use an automated tool like TheBestSpinner. After spinning, you’ll have a highly spun article ready for mass submission.

Something I always recommend you doing first… Is submitting the good quality rewritten article to all the top 10 or so article directories. Just make sure EzineArticles has approved your article before you do this. This will give you 10 or so backlinks from high pr sites. The chances are that the EzineArticle will outrank all the others… But you never know, sometimes I have GoArticles or ArticleBase beating EZA.

4. Now is the time where you take your spun article and submit it to thousands upon thousands of article directories. You do this by using a top secret article submission tool. It’s so top secret that I’m going to have to give you a link to another page on my blog. This page will tell you everything you need to know about my secret article distribution weapon. Since the linking thingy isn’t working, go checkout my top secret article submission tool over on this page: http://workwithdavidwood.com/david-wood-recommends/

Yes, it’s a paid tool. Is there any way of doing this completely for free? Not really. Seriously, every article marketer needs an article directory submission tool. That tool’s the best on the market and it works very well. In fact, if you’re running a website and you don’t have it, you need it. As it’s great for building backlinks to all your sites and boosting their search engine rankings. Once you submit your article out to thousands of directories linking to your original, magic happens! Google starts thinking crap, all these guys are using this guy’s content and linking to it, it must be damn good! The result? Well, Google will give you a major boost in rankings for your targeted keyword. It’s common sense really. Google’s main algorithm factor is link popularity and with the help of article directories and software, we can build thousands of links in seconds.

5. Write a compelling author resource box! This tip is extremely important. It will make a huge difference to your traffic flow, especially long term. When people read your article that’s submitted to all those directories, they may or may not click through to your website. First of all, if your article sucks and has been automatically spun with software, you’ll get like no one clicking through to your website. People will just instantly close the page. However, with manually spun content, you’ll have people reading your content, reading your compelling author resource box and visiting your website. So when writing an author resource box, make sure it’s really fun, interesting and throw in a sort of edge hanger for maximum effect!

6. Build links to your articles! Of course, your original article will have a ton of backlinks from the spun article/s you submitted. BUT, what about all the hundreds if not thousands of articles on the directories? They are like sitting ducks waiting to be charged up with link juice! The thing is, those articles won’t get much traffic on their own. Simply because all the directories aren’t really authoritative and have low page rank. Meaning the pages won’t rank by themselves. So, when you spin your article make sure you switch up the titles. In other words, spin the crap out of them! The more title variations, the more likely you’ll have a ton of them ranking. As if you have 1000 live articles all targeting the same keyword, there’s not much point in blasting them with backlinks. Apart from the SEO benefits, you can’t have them all rank on page 1 of Google for the same keyword. (there’s only 10 spots LOL)

So, mix up your titles and you’ll rank for a bunch of keywords you didn’t even think of. The more links you build to all of your spun article submissions, the more traffic you’ll get. As for tools, you’re going to have to find them on your own. Although, you could just build more article links to your live articles. That would work, but then you’d have more live articles to backlink. So it would get a little out of control after several submissions. What’s the answer? Use different kinds of backlinks. The best “type” for this job is comment and forum profile backlinks. As they can be built in the millions for real cheap! So that’s it. Follow these tips, submit lots of articles and have fun with the thousands of extra visitors. :)

In Prosperity,

David Wood

Great tips, I currently use this strategy, although I aim for 65%+ on uniqueness for spun articles. I find I get more approved articles when I have a uniqueness of at least 65%. One thing when spinning is to make sure it all makes sense, as a human would read, otherwise Big G can/may penalize you.
