How to Write Articles That Will Increase Traffic to Your Website - Compelling resource box...
(Page 4 of 4 )
9. Compelling resource box. The resource box is the "commercial" that appears at the end of the article to tell the reader what you do. Typically, this commercial is 1-2 sentences containing your catchy "tag line" and the URL of your website (preferably on a separate line to make it stand out better). A resource box that makes a reader take action and visit your site is one that contains a short description of a free offer you're making to the reader, usually for a downloadable audio file, ebook, special report, or ecourse if they sign up for that product on your website.
10. Place your articles on your website. Search engines love valuable and relevant content, so the more of this type of content that you have on your site, the higher your search engine rankings. I would estimate that at least 50% of my weekly traffic comes from searches on keywords I have placed in my article titles. I just recently reorganized my articles by topic and created an individual page for each topic, with each page containing the full listing of articles that I have that relate to that topic. I have the full listing of topics on the left-hand side of every page of my site. I'm observing an increasing amount of traffic to my site coming from search terms like, "Internet marketing articles" or "time management articles", as I have both pages as article listing pages on my site.
Your target market needs your expertise! If you use the strategies I've outlined to write your articles, you'll start to see the traffic to your website increase in short order.
