Have you ever turned down the opportunity to use article marketing as a way to bring attention to your business and bringing more traffic to your website because it was so hard to understand? If you know how it works and what makes it so effective for getting results, you will be more likely to take another look at it as a good marketing method.
You will be able to get the best possible results for your search if you use the “advanced search” option that is provided by the search engines. This especially works well if you are doing academic research for a paper you plan to write. Simply put “.edu” or “.gov” into the option that says “search within a site or domain.” By doing this type of search, you will bring in results from sites that end with these suffixes. If you are writing for a journal or a paper it is essential that you bring in sources from legal or academic work.
It is important to focus on creating articles that are interesting and somewhat less formal rather than concentrating on the AP style guide. If you do this, you will be able to concentrate on having your centument articles contain content that is SEO-friendly. Of course, it is not good to go completely crazy and forget all the writing rules you have learned but it is possible to relax a little.
Above all, always be trustworthy and honest. There are a lot of people who do not trust the truth of anything they have read online. For example, if you are advertising products that you do not believe in it will be obvious to your readers and they will not believe what you are saying about the products.
If you are trying to get more traffic, try to become more controversial. Everyone loves hot topics and arguments. Even if they do not share your point of view, they may come to your site to leave a comment letting you know how wrong they think you are. From the perspective of search engine ranking, their visit will still help raise your visibility. It’s okay if the talk is negative because at least there is talk. After all, there will most likely also be people who agree with you and there is a good chance the controversy will generate a great deal of interest among your readers. (more…)
