One of the things that's extremely important when you're writing articles with article marketing is that when you submit your articles to web directories or to article directories they have certain rankings.
So if for example we use Google's system of page ranking, if they've got at least a page rank of five or six-a lot of times they are able to get that actual article into the top ten, or sometimes the top twenty results on. . . you know, for a particular keyword. What that means for you is that your web site may only be page ranked ‘1’ or ‘3’ and you're going to have a difficult time with your particular web site getting your articles on your web site up into the top ten or the top twenty.
These article directories can do that for you. And then what happens is, people search, it's search engine traffic. They go to the article directories. They read the articles and then if and only if they not only like what you've got in the article, they also like your style, then they will click through.
And the second part of this equation. . . I'm going to talk about this later. . . you've got to capture their name in email. The way that you do that is you build a squeeze page, and I'm going to talk about that later. Use an auto-responder and you ask them to give you their name and email address in exchange for some type of a gift.
You can use a wide variety of traffic. You can use ezine advertising; you can use joint ventures; you can use search engine, you know, optimization. You can use pay per click. . . or classified ads if you want. But you know the traffic that I like the best, the traffic that converts the best is article marketing traffic.
