Article Marketing – Quantity Versus Quality

Article submission remains one of the best methods to increase organic search traffics and back link juice to your websites.  Article marketing involved submission of relevant articles to top ranking article and Ezine directories. The articles you submit should contain information pertaining to your niche market product or service that you intend to promote or sell.

The author’s byline or resource box in the article you submit should contain important information such as your website or blog URL. A URL (Universal Resource Locator) is some sort of unique IP address that describe the location of a file in the Internet.

The contact detail in resource box is the most important means of which readers may contact you and also the means for others to link their web page back to your website, process usually known as back links.

In some way you can assume article marketing as means of syndicating your unique articles to publishers. You grant rights to publishers to reprint your articles with the condition that the publisher or whoever include your article only do so provided the author byline or resource box is always published along with your article.

Article submission directories such As ‘EzineArticles.com’, ‘GoArticles.com’ and ‘ArticleBaseDirectory’ receive hundreds if not thousands of article submissions daily. These directories rank extremely high in terms of Alexa rating and search engine page rankings. 

Search engines considered these top directories authoritative in terms of the articles published. Most people rely on search engines to look for information they need from the Internet.

Your article might just appear on the top list of the search engine results for relevant keywords if the article content is search engine friendly and of up to date good quality .

Nevertheless, there are those who feel that article marketing has become so saturated so much so it has lost it total effectiveness.  On the hand there are those who felt that article marketing is just a pure number’s game in the sense that the more articles you submit the more traffic and back link juice that is going to be generated back to your website.

So which of these two factors are more important?  Is the quantity of articles or the quality of the articles more important?  The main objective of article marketing is to get readers to visit your website or blog after they read your article.

The article must therefore be of relevant to the product or service you are trying to promote, be of good quality, interesting and address the needs of the reader. A good article quickly captures and draws the attention of the reader.

A good quality article should not be too long. Most people tend to skip long paragraphs and read between the lines. An article of between 400 to 600 words should just be fine. Present your message quickly and efficiently.

Visitors usually make up their mind within first 10 seconds at glance on whether to continue reading or skip an article.

A visitor has short attention span.  It is therefore important for you to ensure your article touch on the sweet spot and raise the curiosity of the reader.

A well-written quality article ends with some sort of hypnotic sentence that make the reader wanting more thus leading them to visit your website through the author byline or resource box. Give visitor a reason to come back and visit your website!

No amount of article submissions will help if the reader finds it boring or not meeting up to expectations. It is important for you to create article that is search engine friendly but more important that it is of good quality for human readership.

In summary, do not compromise the quality of your article in favor of quantity. The ideal case would be to submit as many high quality article as you could.

After all, increased back link juice and incoming volume traffics to your websites are usually clear indication and point to the quality of the articles posted and popularity of your site

It can be quite frustrating to try to get traffic to your website. Comparatively speaking it is easier for you to setup an e-commerce website as opposed to driving traffic to it.

Some people reported that article marketing is no longer as effective as it used to be. Some claimed that article marketing is over saturated. Regardless, it is still one of the most time tested ways to generate traffic to your website. Do not underestimate the power of article marketing.

Many Internet marketers made the mistake of trying too hard to sell to just about everyone. There is no point in getting high traffic to your website if it does not translate to actual sales For instance, many people do window shopping and most of these people are not likely to buy anything when they visit your shop.

Boost Your Blog Traffic With Article Marketing

Posted on : 26-04-2010 | By : stargaterich | In : Internet_Marketing

One way of promoting your website and product can be achieved for free. As an additional bonus, this “free” method can boost your sites and sales, doubling and even tripling your income. If you are looking for ways to boost your web traffic, one of the most effective link building strategies is article marketing. You’re probably thinking, ‘this isn’t anything you haven’t heard before’. Well, although you may have heard this you are probably wondering how to do it correctly.

Article marketing is still one of the easiest ways to promote your website in order to generate traffic and increase your earnings. How does this work? Write articles relating to your website or blog and submit them to “free content” submission sites. All it takes is just some time to prepare the required article and it can increase your website traffic, sales and of course, your income.

How can article writing boost traffic and income?

The article on the free content site contains a link to your own website. Readers, after reading your articles, may choose to click on the link and pay you an unexpected visit. Having them on the free content sites is also making these articles available to other webmasters who may wish to publish that article on their site.

If they do, your article will include a link back to your site. And anyone who reads the article on that site can still click on the link to visit your site.

As the list of your published articles grow larger, and more and more of them are appearing on different websites, the total number of links to your site increases also. Major search engines are placing a lot of significance on incoming links to websites so they can determine the importance of a certain site.

The more incoming links the website has, the more importance search engines attaches to it. This will then increase your website’s placement in the search results.

If your site is into promoting a product or service, the links that your articles have achieved will mean more potential customers for you. Even if visitors only browse through, you never know if they might be in need of what you are offering in the future.

There are also those who already have specific things they need on their mind but cannot decide yet between the many choices online. Chances are, they may stumble upon one of your articles, gets interested by the contents you wrote, go to your site and became enticed by your promotions. See how easy that is?

The articles you submit to article directories will help build your online status, but they can only do so much. One much overlooked article marketing secrets is the quality of the article you submit. Make sure it is interesting enough for people to follow the link to your website. Once at your website, make sure your website intriguing enough for the visitor to refer it to a friend. This is the cycle that begins with submitting a great article.

Search engines do not just index the websites, they also index published articles. They also index any article that is written about your own website’s topic. So once someone searches for that same topic, the list of results will have your site or may even show the articles that you have written.

And to think, no effort on your part was used to bring them to your site. Just your published articles and the search engines. It is no wonder why many webmasters are suddenly reviving their old writing styles and taking time to write more articles about their site than doing other means of promotion.

Getting their site known is easier if they have articles increasing their links and traffic and making it accessible for visitors searching the internet. Since many people are now taking their buying needs online, having your site on the search engines through your articles is one way of letting them know about you and your business.

The good thing with articles is that you can write about things that people would want to know about. This can be achieved in the lightest mood but professional manner, with a little not-so-obvious sales pitch added.

If you think about it, only a few minutes of your time is spent on writing one article and submitting to free content site. In the shortest span of time also, those are distributed to more sites than you can think of. Even before you know what is happening, you are getting more visitors than you previously had.

If you think you are wasting your time writing these articles, fast forward to the time when you will see them printed and wide-spread on the internet. Not to mention the sudden attention and interest that people are giving your website and your products or services.

Try writing some articles and you will be assured of the sudden surge in site traffic, link popularity and interest. Before you know it, you will be doubling and even tripling your earnings.

Find Out 4 Affiliate Tips For Your Business

Posted on : 20-03-2010 | By : Kim Neo | In : Internet_Marketing

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,


Affiliate marketing isn’t very different from any other business out there, it’s just the same thing with a cyber twist. However, the marketing methods that you will employ are basically the same as with any traditional business. However, affiliate marketers are in direct competition with each other, and that makes the job a bit harder. This is why it’s important for you to stand out from the crowd in every possible way to get that most wanted sale. In the following article, I will let you in on four things that will sharpen your skills and make you more money in the long run.

1) Set the table: in order to secure your piece of the affiliate marketing pie, you need to know the wants and needs or your customer’s lifestyle. You don’t want to waste your time trying to sell ice cream in the Antartic. Instead you want to pick the marketing methods that best suit your targeted niche. For instance, if you have a website with the topic of “mechanical tools,” it will need to have content written that will address the needs of the people that are in that market. You also need to consider the experience level of your target market. Or maybe someone that has a great deal of knowledge in your product? If you have an item that you would like to sell, then your content should be directed towards people that wish to buy that particular item.

2) CPA Programs are Profitable – Cost Per action programs, or pay per lead (PPL) programs, can also be used to help your blog earn money. These types of programs are run on CPA networks which you need to join before you begin promoting. Simply Google “CPA network” to find a bunch of these. Again, you’re not selling anything here, because you make money on a certain action your visitor takes. Whenever the required action is carried out by a visitor (which can also be signing up through a form or simply submitting their email address) you earn money. The CPA market is thriving today, and there are lots of courses available which can teach you how to become a part of these types of networks and make money by promoting their offers. It does however take some time and effort before you get good at it, but in the end, there’s a lot of money you can make from it.

3) Let Subscribers Assist You In Building Your List – It is true that it takes skill and time to be able to build a list. However, once you find the right niche markets, you will not be able to find anything more effective. Now if you really desire to move to the next level and create the kind of lists that really make big money you need to carefully cultivate your first several hundred subscriptions. you can’t even dream of co-oping with other marketers until you have a solid list of subscribers. Before anyone will take you on in a joint venture you have to have enough subscriptions in your list that you’ll be able to meet or exceed the numbers they’ll bring to the party. All list owners prefer working with someone who is on their level. Begin with promotions like item giveaways and distributing articles. Once you have a solid base of a thousand subscribers or so then you can try other marketers in and see who might take you up on a co-op venture.

4) Accomplish Success By Pre-selling – You must remember one fact: The merchant is the one that sells the product, not you! You need to pre-sell, or create reasons why your visitors should make a purchase, not sell. Educate your customers. Write detailed reviews about the products on your affiliate “menu”. You can give them your honest opinion, of the pros and the cons; things they won’t find on the promotional material. To secure the largest portion possible of the affiliate marketing pie, the most successful thing you can do is share your own honest, positive experiences with the product.

The major goal of the the various search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Microsoft is to only serve one version of the content in search results. This is definitely in line with user expectations of not being serve with duplicate contents from multiple urls and mirror sites.

Mass Article Control

The main objective of article rewriting is to make every single of your article which is being submitted to the article directories appear unique to search engines. There are many irresponsible web masters who goes around copying and duplicating contents from others.

Regardless of how sophisticated search engines might be, trying to determine the original authorship of a content remains a huge challenge. Search spiders can’t really tell for sure which of the websites contains the original content thus your website ranking may suffer and drop from the search index because the search engine will index only one particular URL.

Duplicate contents can also affect your website link popularity. Instead of having all the back links focused at one particular URL, these back links will instead point to multiple versions of the same URL.

This will make it more difficult to collect incoming traffic for any one particular URL. What was supposed to be increase targeted traffic to a particular URL gets distributed among several other websites instead. Thus the link popularity for your particular URL may suffer as a result of link juice dilution.

Article rewriting can be a time consuming process. Fortunately there are many software which helps to speed up the article rewrite process. One of the best article rewrite tool is the Mass Article Creator Software

Article Content Spinning – Mass Article Control

Posted on : 10-01-2010 | By : stargaterich | In : Internet_Marketing

Tags: , , ,


There are many article content spinner or article rewriting software in the market. Some of this software is completely free of charge. For instance JetSpinner is an free online article rewriting software that is pretty handy for generating multiple unique articles based on a single article.

Why would you want to consider forging out money to purchase an article content spinner software while you can get it for from the Internet? Well, the truth of the matter is that it all depends on your preferences such as 1) learning curve, 2) online versus off line. 3)features

Firstly, article content spinner (be it free or paid products) can be categorized into two types namely off-line or online software. Article content spinner service that is hosted on the remote server of the software provider is considered online tool. An online tool has advantages as well as disadvantages.

The main advantages of any online article content spinner are that firstly you don’t need to install the software on your notebook or desktop computer. Software patches and updates are automatically accomplished remotely by the hosted server designated by the software provider. You can use any computer with Internet access to log into the user account that you registered for the online article content spinner. Portability and machine platform independent is a tremendous plus.

On the other hand the main disadvantages of these online tools are 1) you need to have access to the Internet to utilize the service, 2) the service can slow down quite a bit somewhat if there are too many users accessing the online tool simultaneously, 3) keywords, phrases, sentences and even paragraphs synonyms which you generate for specific articles usually resides on the remote server databases which you have no control. Administrator or the owner of the online article content spinner reserved the rights to remove the synonym database that you build up across time thus all your efforts may be wasted.

The main advantages of off-line standalone article content spinners are that they are usually installed and operate in the client target machine. No Internet access is required to run the program. Furthermore, most of the off-line article content spinners do not suffer from any form of slowdown due to load balancing issue because at any point of time only a single user get to access the program.

Another factor to consider is how long it takes for the user to be familiar with the software and the amount of time need to be up to speed with using it comfortably. It is not surprising that some of the free article content spinner tools are powerful, feature rich but complicated or confusing in some sense and takes time to be familiar with.

Mass Article Control

Mass Article Creator is one of the easiest off-line article content spinners to use. There is no complicated settings or rules to remember. It works as advertised and you quickly gain speed in learning how to use it with ease after watching the video tutorial. The entire article creation is easily accomplished by just a few button clicks.

Yes, Mass Article Control software may cost quite a bit but the benefits that you get from it far exceeds the product cost you paid for. The software runs on Microsoft Windows OS. After you install the program and launch it, a clean looking GUI pops up, looks kind of intimidating at first but you easily get the hang of it quickly.

The Mass Article Control product is made up of Mass Article Creator software and the Mass Article Submitter software. The Mass Article Creator software creates unique contents based on a single seed article. The Mass Article Submitter software automates submission of articles to up to 10 article/Ezine directories.

By default the Mass Article Creator software comes configured right out of the box with huge in-build synonym database. You can add new synonyms and create different set of synonyms accordingly. It is major plus being able to categorize the synonyms to allow you to organize different sets of keywords, phrases and sentences replacements for different article rewriting topics.

On the flip downside, Mass Article Creator lack one important feature, the option to export or save the categorized synonym database. The fact that this software executes from the computer which the software is installed means you would probably have to re-generate the categories of synonyms if you need to install and execute the software on another computer.

In summary, Mass Article Creator is a great tool to use as it helps you to quickly create unique articles based on a single article. Automating article rewriting or article content spinning is worth considering as it save you lots of precious time to focus on other more pertinent aspects of your online business.
