Traffic from Article Directories
1. How to Submit your Content to Article Directorie
In this lesson, we are going to show you step by step how to submit your content to article directories.
We recommend you start the article marketing traffic driving with the most popular article directory online, www.ezinearticles.com. So, go to the top where it says Join and create your account. Put in your name, other information, and get it set up. EzineArticles is very similar to Article Base so for this example we will look at only one of them.
To have the best success possible with this strategy of getting traffic from article directories, you need to be consistent. You need to continually add unique content that you have created. You can’t take it from PLR sources or from other sources. We are am going to go to www.articlebase.com and there you will register.
Just enter your information it asks for in order to create your account. After you agree to the terms, you can click on Register. There is also a validation code you will need to enter to verify you are a human.
You will get a thank you message and you will also get an activation link in your email. Click that link to activate your membership at Article Base.
Now you need to go to the Article Dashboard. This is where you can publish articles, view and edit articles, and many other things. We are going to pick publish an article. We are also going to stick with the golf theme for this example.
You will need to enter a title. You will need to complete the summary. For keywords, put in those that are relevant to your niche market. That will help to draw people in. It will help people to search by tags and find your articles. Copy an article you wrote that is 100% unique and paste it. Avoid linking within your article even though they do give you that option.
If you do want to link something for the flow of your article, just highlight it and click on that link. One thing you can do is publish a study about something for your niche or a video. You can link to that as a possibility. Next, you want to complete your author bio. Talk about who you are and what you offer.
You can put a link to your blog or your website in your bio information. You can also link to your squeeze page. You want to set it to open link in a new window. Then you can copy and paste it in there. Make sure you give your readers a compelling reason too in your bio. Tell them about a free report or offer you have.
Provide solid keywords in your article title. Do a www.google.com search for our niche to get the keywords. Scroll to the bottom and get a list of relevant keywords that you can also use. This gives you an idea of what your niche market is looking for. You can use those titles to create articles around.
You want to submit the content when you have it done.
It will tell you that it has been submitted to their editorial team for review. It can take up to 72 hours. It is usually quick, but it takes longer at EzineArticles to get them approved. That site can take up to 10 days but you need to be patient. You can get plenty of traffic.
You can find more article directory sites by doing a Google search. They all follow the same similar pattern for the process. You will see articles that tell you not to use article directories just for backlinks. We use these sites due to the high volume of traffic. That is why you need to use good titles and good keywords. It is part of a good overall marketing strategy. You may hear that article directories are terrible and that isn’t the case. It all comes down to the way that people were trying to manipulate them.
As long as you keep that in mind, you will be just fine. There are plenty of these article directories out there you can submit to. There are also hub pages like Squidoo and Hubpages. Another popular one to consider is www.goarticles.com. All of them offer you a chance for exposure on a high article marketing traffic.
