Article marketing is just about my favorite thing to do online, except for list building, but I work them both together, so together they are my favorite things online.
But article marketing is how I get my traffic, it is how I get my search engine rankings, it is how I get my subscribers and buyers.
Now, the purpose of this article is how I get search engine traffic from article marketing. And the way that I get search engine traffic is by getting backlinks.
You see, the way that the search engines decide how valuable a web site you have is how many and what quality are the links of the web sites linking in to you. The bottom line is, they figure that if more sites are linking in to your site, then you must have a better, more useful web site than sites that do not have as many inbound links, all things being equal.
So where does article marketing fit into this?
Well, when you write articles, you can submit them to multiple article directories, and get a link back from each article directory. So if you submit to 100 article directories, then you can get 100 links back to you.
So that is what you do.
1) Write articles
2) Put text anchor links in them, linking back to your web site, with the text of your keyword on the anchor (like you see I’ve done on this page)
3) Submit your articles to the top 100 web sites online, which accept articles (article directories).
One of the most important things when you are online is keeping to the task at hand - you simply have to do the work - no matter how hard it is, you just have to keep plugging. Getting ahead online is not hard work - but it is work!
I have actually prepared a list of the top 100, so if you join one of my email lists, just hit ‘reply’ on one of the emails I send you, and I will send you my special list of top 100 article directories. : Secrets of Article Promotion
