I run an internet marketing company.
Article Marketing is extremely important. It can give your website exposures and also can acknowledge you as an expert in your industry.
Hi Entre Opp,
I have heard about this for years but is there any research out there, any conclusive proof?
For example, how many low page rank, indexed and published directories submissions do you need to climb let's say from PR2 to PR4.
10, 100. 1000, 10 000, 1 000 000?
Other SEO methods like long tail keywords work in days.
There seems to be "some" proof that it works but mixed in other algos I'm not sure...
I am now doing some testing with 4 moving sites:
All sites have similar targets, I will try article marketings on some of them and see what happens but 6 weeks into it now with 60 submissions and no difference yet.
If you are doing Article Marketing to get direct traffic from the articles, then focus only on the most popular directories:
Ezinearticles.com (this is a MUST)
If you want the SEO benefit, then you can go berserk as long as you do it slowly.
There are businesses that run totally and uniquely on Ezinearticles.com traffic and seo benefit, so you have to focus on it in the first place.
my 2 cents
Article marketing does work, you get start by writing articles that cater to your niche market. When writing article don't focus on selling, provide valuable information that actually help people to solve their problem. Your focus is to add value to people's lifes and expect nothing in return. When people see the value that you have to offer, they'll automatically join you for one reason or the other. Just open yourself to help others as best as you can with article marketing. Article marketing will give you quality traffic but not huge traffic, you have to be consistent providing articles to get consistent traffic.
