While it is true that submitting articles can create massive amounts of traffic to your site there are a few key things to be considered. Unless of course your a lone ranger marketing in a niche without any competition, if so, this article is not for you. Simply a few backlinks with choice keywords aimed at your niche without any competitors pages and your flying high on page one of the top 3 search engines. Actually, now that I think about it while proofing this article - if that is you, please contact me as I'd like to know which niche your in. (:--)
Well that's a nice thought for a perfect world where everyone get's their own niche and every page of your site fills the first 3 pages of a Google search, but for the rest of us in larger markets the competition can be very fierce.
I'm not sure about you but I think many people blindly submit articles to article directories and ezine publishers without consideration for the keywords their targeting using their anchor text in their resource box or throughout the article. Most of us by now know that backlinks built up to our sites, steadily and progressively over time will cause us to rise, rise, rise in the serp's (search engine results pages).
There are SEO forums filled to overflowing on proper choice of keywords. I've not spent much time studying all the latest tips and tricks but while learning online marketing over this past year I've certainly picked up alot of knowledge of what works and what doesn't on the net.
Okay, enough of an intro - if your targeting a large market like say - "internet marketing" for example - just know that according to Google your up against 278 million pages that are also targeting this keyword. While a quick search in Overtures database reveals over 302 thousand searches in January of 2006 alone - this may be a market to be in some would quickly assume - well, maybe if your willing to wait a long time or have a 100,000 dollars in your bank account to captivate nearly every form of online promotion along with an expensive article submission service.
Of course with a little keyword research you could weed out about 98% of that competition. Let's dive right in and see what's possible.
I'm going to use my favorite keyword research tool, which I'm very enthusiastic about btw, email me if you need the best free one available, I'm going to look and see if I can find an easier keyword even in this large market. Hold tight, I'll be right back.
Okay, I'm back, why not target your articles and sites around the keyword of "idea making money" , it's regularily searched, over 8,000 times in January of 2006 but only has 9540 competing pages. In fact, I'm quite impressed by this keyword and I just might target it myself unless you beat me too it. Anyway, by targeting your articles, web pages and backlink anchor text keywords to this lesser competitive term you'll drastically shorten the time it takes to get to page 1 of the top 3 engines. Although the payout in the end won't be as large due to less traffic you will be handsomely rewarded if you do this 10 or 15 times over on different keywords, to do this just add more pages to your site - you'll need lot's anyway! By using keywords that have a realistic page 1-3 serp reach, you could see page one within only days or weeks rather than months or years. I also have a really impressive and fast site builder too if your in need. Again, email me if interested so I don't have to advertise an affiliate program in this article, which is another no no I hear. (:--)
In closing, some other quick tips not to forget - use your keyword once in the title of your article if it sounds realistic and not stupid! My suggested keyword above will need some creativity to flow well in sentences. Add your keyword a couple times throughout a 5-700 word article and once in your resource box should easily be enough. Just don't over do it and since the engines are more and more shooting for quality non-duplicated content your going to have to be submitting articles that are in english for long term reliability(:--).
Also, regarding the web page your targeting, use your keyword(s) once in the page title, once in your page headers, in at least one of the alt tags of your pictures and around 0.5 - 2 % of your pages total words. I've found this makes a difference when the spiders come crawling your pages.
All the best to you my fellow article submitters!
