rticle marketing isn’t anything new. Magazine publishers have been using article marketing for many years. So why do people write so many articles? Usually it’s to get more and more readers in order to make even more income.
There may be other reasons but for me personally it’s about earning a living online.
Over the years I have increased the number of sites I own, to the point I can’t create all the content I need on a regular basis. Now I turn to article directories and networks for content when needed, which is pretty much 5 days a week now.
I look for content that is focused, keyworded and of course which fits my niche. I also do my best to find articles that are new and haven’t been over published.
It can be tough finding articles that meet my needs without paying for articles or writers. Here are a few tips you can follow to produce articles other marketers will want to publish.
Tip #1 – Take The Time To Spin Quality Articles
I write a lot of articles and I spin a lot more articles from those original articles. Once I have proof read the spin code to be sure all is good I publish the spin code to my top article networks for other to use. This gains me a lot of one way backlinks and helps increase my page rank for important web pages.
I don’t write or publish articles people can’t read or who get frustrated trying to read them. When I am on a site and find content I can’t read I leave, I don’t stick around and try to figure out what the article is saying and I certain don’t click a link on their site.
The reason I reject more than 90% of the articles I see is so I have quality content for my readers, plain and simple.
For my article spinning needs I use The Best Spinner. I have tried 4 or 5 other spinners but am quite happy with The Best Spinner.
Tip #2 – Check How Many Times An Article’s Been Published
Once I’ve looked through an article to see that it reads like an intelligent human penned it I then check in Msn to see how many times it’s been published.
If an article has already been published thousands of times I’m not really interested. I tend to look for articles that have been published less than 100 times.
Google, my search engine of choice for a good reason, doesn’t like duplicate content very much so for that reason I don’t like it either and choose to take the time to articles that have been published less often.
Tip #3 – It’s Relevant Hyperlinks or Nothing
Finding articles with links that don’t match the niche or content is most annoying so I check every article to see where they are pointing their links. If they aren’t relevant they don’t get accepted. Just that simple for me.
Again it’s about my readers. Why would I present them with articles that teach them something vital to their online success and then leave them a link to follow that takes them to something completely different? Well I wouldn’t because that’s just not too bright, is it?
Tip #4 – Avoid Spinning Spin Your Main Keywords
When I am article marketing I focus on specific keywords. When I spin my articles, using The Best Spinner I use the Phrase Protection tab to protect my key phrases from being spun with the rest of the article.
I see this so much in article titles. So right away I have a good idea about the writer. If they don’t bother to protect their keyword phrases in their title they are not likely to bother with the rest of the article or their link text.
I hope you realize that search engines can’t index your pages for your keywords if you don’t include them in your title. Plus you won’t get the best search engine postioning for your article.
Tip #5 – Don’t Spin Your Hyperlink Text
This tip is a very important tip. Mess this one up and the search engines are not going to see your links as relevant and they will be de-valued.
I Use Article Spinning To Make Money
It is really not worth trying to save time by clicking the auto replace all feature in your article spinner as it turns potential customers away. For me personally I prefer to use the replace synonyms manually over automatically so that I know each replacement works to keep my readers happy.
Look at The Best Spinner to spin your articles, as I do, but take the time to put your keyword phrases in the protected tab so that you don’t destroy the power article marketing offers.
