List of Article
- Article Directories - publishers of websites,
blogs, and ezines search these sites for good quality content.
- Article Lists - these are newsletters on Yahoo
and Topica that allow you to email your article directly to publishers
of web content. The submission comes directly from the list, giving
your article instant crediblity.
- Ezine Directories – this means contacting
individual publishers of ezines related to your topic. You can
locate these publishers on ezine directory websites. Email each
one and ask them to publish your article.
- Individual Websites – contact webmasters
of websites related to your topic. If you focus on high ranking
sites, this also boosts your own page rank.
- Past Publishers – contact past publishers
of your articles and offer to write articles on any content that
they may be interested in. Put a link to the page in their site
containing your past work.
- Provide Article to your Affiliates - If you
run an affiliate-program, help your affiliates by giving them
your articles as a way to help promote your site. Give permission
for them to substitute your link with theirs in the resource box
of the article.
Create an Article RSS Feed
Once you have enough articles, create an RSS Feed that people can
use for their website. Every time you create an article, you post
it on your RSS feed and the subscribing websites have new content
for their visitors.
You need to keep your articles coming and continuously market them.
You don’t need a large number of articles to start, or to
submit to all directories. In fact, building slowly has shown to
be more valuable as it does not trigger the search engines, who
monitor any untoward spikes in traffic.
Great writing – good hunting!
