Get Traffic to Your Web Site with Articles - That is how...
(Page 2 of 3 )
That is how you get extra traffic.
Do all those who read your articles visit your site? Of course not. In fact, only about 3% of readers may visit. This is quite normal, but it does eventually snowball into significant numbers. Here's How.
When people use your articles on their web sites or ezines, they must also maintain the credits and respect the copyrights of the author. I felt really honored when I discovered that some of my articles were used the day after I posted them. And you only discover a very few places that your work is used. Most of the time, you can't know.
The first Directory I posted articles to is Ezine Articles at http://EzineArticles.com/ which is the fastest growing of all of them. By logging in to my members page, I can view how many times each article has been read. What I can't see is how many times people borrowed my articles, and how many times they were read in that new place, etc, etc.
Can you see how significant this all can be?
One more important point is the question of how long the articles should be. My personal preferences are 800 to 1,400 words. However, 500 to 1,000 is an acceptable range. In fact, if you have a 2,000 word article, you should split it up into 2 parts. That way you get the advantage of one extra page of visibility.
Finally, there is the question of how many directories you should post to.
You need to be aware, that posting articles can be a very time consuming exercise. For that reason, it may be best to test many, but only use a few. The more popular ones are usually better organized and permit article posting in an easy way. This includes previewing it before posting it with errors.
Currently, I post to 5 directories but have rejected more th an 20 that were such a drag to use, that I gave up on them. On the easy ones to post to, I can get in and out in less than 5 minutes for one article.
