We have now reached the final part of this article and in this part I will provide you with ways in which to distribute your article and the importance of submitting them correctly.
The First Method - Manual Distribution of Articles
You will find there are a large number of article directory sites on the internet and some have even got a high PR. What you will notice when you first visit such sites as these is just how many articles that they have published and also the amount of categories and sub categories that they use. Please do not be daunted by this. Remember the article that you have written is original and is specifically orientated to your site and no one else’s. A good thing to do before you actually submit your article is to carefully check what categories/sub categories are available so that you can place your article in the correct one. A large amount of articles are rejected because the author has failed to correctly categorize the article prior to submission. If you find that the site has no category or sub category relating to your articles content then you may find that the article directory allows you the chance to suggest another category (please take advantage of this service if it is available). Also another thing that I would suggest you do is if they have an authors sign up section, then join. You usually find that this includes a number of additional benefits that submitting just one article would not benefit from. The added benefits usually including a system where you are able to track your articles as well as forums where you can talk to other liked minded authors who may provided you with hints and tips for increasing the quality and content of the articles that you write.
The real added benefit of using such directories is that you find your article has been published by site owners who neither have the time or skill for producing such articles on the same subject as you. They are allowed to do this free of charge, however, they must not make any alterations to the article provided and must not remove the author’s resource box. This provides you with another back link to your site without the hassle of having to contact the site owner direct.
Also you will find various other people on the internet such as Ezine Publishers, Bloggers and Offline Publishers or Editors have included your article as it provides good content and information that sits well on their site. Again they are only able to use this article for free as long as they do not remove the author’s resource box.
Unfortunately, one of the down sides of using this method is that the increase of traffic appearing at your site is not immediate and will only increase over time and as more and more back links are added to your site. But on the plus side you will discover that search engines will only perceive what is happening with your site as natural growth and this will help to improve your PR.
The Second Method - Automated Distribution of Articles
By now you will have noticed just how time consuming it can be to distribute your articles manually, i. e. , site by site. But now days you find there are a number of software products available which enable you to distribute your articles to a number of directories in one go.
Or else if you really want to you could arrange for your articles to be distributed by a web service not only will they distribute your article to article directories but also to publishers, editors and writing groups. Although this will provide you with better coverage and is a much quicker method, you will need to weigh up the cost of such a service, especially if you have only just started up and you have not got much capital or income coming from the site as yet. This method may better be saved for when you have a little extra cash.
This is the final article on using articles as a guaranteed method for site promotion and I hope you found them to be informative and interesting.
