How to Write Articles That Will Increase Traffic to Your Website - Valuable content...
(Page 3 of 4 )
6. Valuable content. I read an incredible amount of drivel in online articles. I really resent wasting my time when an article has a wonderful title that solves a problem that I have, but when I click on the full content, it fails to deliver any valuable information. It's even more annoying when the article is simply an advertorial of sorts for a product or service. I always strive to deliver the best information that I have about a topic to my readers. Don't be afraid of giving away what you know! It's a great way to establish your expertise so that your target market will confidently buy from you when they're ready.
7. Have a beginning, middle and an end. Your article should have an introductory paragraph to tell your readers what you're going to tell them in the article, the body of your article with your prime content, and then an ending that summarizes what you said in the article. If you write tips articles with numbered points like I do, it's important to end with a summary paragraph rather than your last tip, as many directory editors will refuse to publish your article because it's considered incomplete.
8. Limit your URLs. Most article publishers will refuse to list your article if you have more than 3 URLs in the body of your article. Stricter publishers will refuse to publish any article containing affiliate links in the body, or links back to one of your websites in the body.
