5 Tips For Better Article Marketing Results


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.

Five Backlinking Mistakes That Will Cost You


When you work to get your webpages ranking higher in search engine result pages it takes a good SEO strategy to be successful. My favourite is to use backlinking or link building through article marketing.

I’m not sure what your searching habits are but research over the years has proven that the majority of those using search engines to find things usually don’t go past the first page of SERPs, some do go as far as page 2 but then most often refine their search and try again.

What does this mean to you? Well if you aren’t located on the first page of Google or other top search engines you just may not be able to make any money. Until you get there which takes research and work.

Backlinking Works When Done Correctly
You will find a number of methods for getting those vital backlinks to your important pages which will help to push your pages up in the rankings. There are however a lot of ways to mess up when link building but they are avoidable with a little know-how.

First Mistake: Linking to pages that aren’t relevant to your article. That sounds like an easy thing to avoid and it is but it still happens every single day. So pay attention to thge keywords you use and make certain you are linking to one of your pages that matches.

Second Mistake: Linking to pages that are duplicate content. I really can’t believe marketers do this but I see it every single day I work my business.

When rewriting or spinning your articles it gives you an opprotunity to link to build traffic and page rank but so many over look this and still publish the same article, even if it’s rewritten a little, to a page with the same article.

When I am looking for something specific and have my plastic at the ready and then click the link in an article expecting to be taken to more helpful info only to land on a page with the same content. Well I just leave and they don’t get my business.

Third Mistake: Not Using Keyworded Link Text. This is an area where blunders can really hold you back. There really is no reason why a marketer wouldn’t use keyworded text to form their links but again I see this blunder daily and it’s not always new marketers that make this mistake.

You article, if created properly, should have a specific keyword density using keywords that match your niche and that you can rank for. Then it’s vital that you use those keywords as link text for the biggest bang for your buck or effort.

Fourth Mistake: Reciprocal Linking Over One-Way-Linking. You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours or reciprocal linking has lost it’s effectiveness over the years and has been replaced with the more powerful linking method of one way linking.

In the eyes of the search engines reciprocal linking isn’t nearly as valuable as one way links. One way links say that the site linked to is worth linking to because they are not getting a link back like one does with reciprocal linking.

I’m not sure why new marketers like to use ‘click here’ as their link text as it doesn’t help them in any way. Doesn’t it make much more sense to have something that is keyworded to ones niche?

Fifth Mistake: Non-Relevant Commenting. Blog commenting is an area that has great potential for getting the attention of other blog owners as well as their visitors.

The blunder here is spamming. Some just spam with non relevant commenting while others think they are doing great when they say something like ‘great post, I learned a lot, thanks’ and then leave a link.

In order to make blog commenting work effectively today you need to be the first to comment on a post, or near the first and you need to add value to the article with your comment.

This means you need to read the article and take the time to either ask a quality question based on the content or add value by adding something readers will want to read.

Blog commenting the correct way will usually get the blog owner’s attention and visitors, but you need to be near the #1 spot of you may just get missed.
