How to Write Articles That Will Increase Traffic to Your Website
(Page 1 of 4 )
I've been submitting articles to online article directories for almost a year now, and as a result, I've seen a tremendous increase in my website traffic.Increasingly, what I'm seeing is visitors coming to my site because of searches for keywords that also happen to be the same as topics of articles that I've written. Additionally, my articles have been published in several high profile ezines that have very large subscriber lists, which have driven even more traffic to my website.
How can you write article that increase traffic to your website? Here are 10 strategies I am successfully using:
1. Short but valuable content. Based on all of my research of various article directories, articles should be between 450 -1000 words, with an optimal length of 700-800 words. Most of my articles are 1000-1200 words, so even though I'm a great violator of this rule, article marketing has still been a successful strategy for me.
2. Curb your submissions. Many article submission services as well as article directories permit you to submit an unlimited number of articles on a weekly basis. Consequently, I've heard that some of these services have been blacklisted by the more reputable directories (not the service I'm using, however). In my opinion, article directories permitting unlimited article submissions are great wastelands of poorly written articles, unless they have some type of article approval process attached to the submission. The reputable article banks (those that have great credibility with ezine publishers for having content-rich articles) usually limit article submissions to no more than 2 per week.
