Article marketing is a marketing method that works by having companies write articles that provide great information on topics related to their websites. Then the articles can be distributed to article directories, such as Extreme Articles, and they contain resource boxes that point readers back to their website. Article marketing is most probably the most effective link building strategy in existence. Article directories allow you to include a resource box for every article you submit. Article marketing is a great tool that can promote you from being a bottom feeder to being one of the larger fish in the pond. Article marketing is a great way to promote your affiliate product or affiliate program. By writing an article that delivers value and offers a subtle mention of your affiliate product, you’re well on your way to getting the proper exposure for your promotion. Article marketing not only allows links in the body text of the article but in the resource box at the foot of the page. Your article must have good content if you want it placed in many websites because this in turn will link back to your own website which of course will increase the website ranking. Webmasters have a love-hate relationship with article submission. Some dread article submission because of the lengthy process of submitting manually to hundreds of article submission directories, others simply don’t have a flair for writing.
Website owners get much needed co
ntent that they don’t have to create themselves, and article authors get quality backlinks to their sites. In the process, visitors to all of the sites involved get information they’re looking for. Webmasters, bloggers, and newsletter publishers are constantly in need of fresh, original content. That is what makes article marketing so powerful. Additionally, popular article sites not only can pass some of their traffic on to you, articles from the top article sites are often listed in Google alerts you can subscribe to for keywords that people are looking for. When articles are published on the web that focus on search engine marketing, many will be listed in my daily alert. Advanced PR is a well known industry leader with direct press release contact with over 680,000 media contacts. The only service of its kind that offers a media and press coverage GUARANTEE! Additionally, they all contained out-of-date information, had no e-mail support, no money back guarantees, and broken links in the downloads section. Submitting your articles to various article directories would help you get the exposure fast. Some would prefer using article submitters to ease their work. Submitting more articles increases the presence of your business on the internet. The internet has many reputable article directories that accept informative and interesting articles from you.
Personally, I submit to over 200 to 300 directories per article to get the amount of exposure my website is getting now. Therefore you must be committed to submit your article to as many directories as possible.
