We could not deny that articles are the food of the search engines. Of course, I am talking about unique articles here and not duplicate content. Unless your website has only a one, two or three pages only, and then you will be needing lots and lots of directory submission and other promotional works to do.
This is also one of the reasons why webmasters continue to develop auto and semi-auto articles submission software to ease that boring copy and pasting task. We are not talking generated articles here, and I am sure, you don't want to put something in comprehensible articles in your websites. These generated articles also are not being accepted in any of the articles directories.
That's why you really need to work these things out. If you could not be able to construct your own articles, there are lots of freelance article writers out there you can hire or buy articles for a cheap price. When you buy articles, it should be around 400 plus word and can be less than 500 words per articles. This is because articles directories require this number of words per article, but if you'll only just use these articles on your website or blog, then less than 300 words will do.
There's another way to for you to use an article for your web promotion and link building. You can use articles to be submitted on multiple blogs. Of course, you need to include your keywords or anchor text in the articles. In fact, there are already lots of it online. Usually the owner has multiple blog or a blog network where an article should be posted.
This type of article submission, well, this is only my view, might topple some of the article directories out there. This is because the blogs have the ability to be syndicated automatically compared to articles directories which rss syndication is done manually. Not to mention that some internet marketer just copy it and just put the author name and not the resource box. In fact, one of my articles submitted here was copied and posted without my resource box, instead, included my name only as the author.
Both websites, of course, could help build your site popularity online. Just look for relevant blogs or article directories where you can submit your articles.
