There are a lot of different sites online that offer money for those who want to submit their articles to them and make money for doing so. Some of these places have programs that are just set amounts per article but other sites will offer a set amount and then a percentage amount for those articles that get a lot of traffic to them by readers. There are a few things that you need to do in order for your articles to earn that extra money and below you will find a guideline to help you do just that. One of the most important things that you can do is to make sure that you do good research on the keywords that you want to use. You should also know how to use SEO properly. You want readers to be able to find you online. These factors are what search engines are going to use in order to rank your page. Learning keyword placement without overdoing it within your article is going to be one of the keys for increasing how much money your article might be able to earn. You should also make sure that the titles you pick for your articles are going to be something that people are going to be searching for. You should really think about the title and what you might type in a search engine to find what you were looking for. Most people will think the same way.
It’s important that you make sure that you follow all of the sites terms of service. It doesn’t matter what site you may submit your articles to they all have their
own set of rules. The rule of thumb is that if you don’t follow their terms to the letter your article will be removed and they may even suspend you and then you’ll lose money instead of gaining any. You also need to introduce in the right fashion. There are sites where you can promote your article and you need to make the introduction interesting and give just enough of the article to get the attention of people so they will want to go to where your article is located so that they can read the entire thing. Make sure that your intro paragraph is just revealing enough that it will entice readers to want to read it all. If you only include the title and very little detail there will be less interest in the article meaning you will not make that extra money. Remember the importance of promoting. If you write your article and post it and then just leave it, more than likely you are not going to get that extra money for new traffic coming to the page. So you really need to promote your articles. You can do this by using the suggestion above by going to sites that will allow you to give your articles an intro and you can also self promote by including promos in emails to friends and family members.
You can go and join blogs and comment on posts that you are interested in commenting on and within the post you can direct them to your article by putting it in your signature. Just make sure that when you promote your article that you don’t make it sound like spam, that’s a sure fire way of getting people to not want to read your piece.
