Writing articles frightens some people. It did me when I first started out. It really does not need to though. Most articles have around 250 to 500 words. That is not a lot to write if you follow some rules. In fact it can be a challenge to get everything you want to say written in such a short format.
You can start seeing traffic from day one, but in fairness you usually need a fair few articles out there. It is not so much quantity, but how keyword rich they are. The one thing that is a certainty, is that the articles must be original.
Nothing is really new on the Internet. If you buy a book on any subject it will be pretty much covered else where. So do not worry about coming up with new ideas. Just write your own views and words on your chosen niche.
You need to make your article interesting enough for the reader to read all of it, because the only place that you can leave a link normally, is in the resource box at the end of the article. That is the whole point of course.
So it starts with the title. Make it stand out and grab their attention. Included your keywords in the title. The first paragraph should lead the reader into the topic. It does depend on the subject of course, but in the second paragraph, I tend to outline problems and causes. Then move onto benefits next.
The last few lines should point the reader to another source of information if they want to know more about the subject. This of course is your resource box. Where you will leave a link back to your site.
To kind of kill two birds in one stone. I often write a post for my blog and then submit it to the article directories. This way I have updated my own site and spread the word.
Do not listen to those that tell you that you can not do this. An article directory will allow you to post on your own blog first. Their only stipulation is that the work has to be your own. The only time that you may find some problems is if you used a pen name.
I think it would be a good point to mention just how article directories work. There are two ways that they are used and it does make a difference on how you write your articles.
Some people are simply searching for content for their own sites. They will probably be looking for longer more informative articles. If they like something that you have written, then they copy and paste the whole article including your links to their own site. By placing your article on a directory, you agreeing to this.
Other may be just looking for information, and shorter articles that have a link to more information in the resource box works well for this kind of visitor. For traffic purposes and that is what this product is about. Then both methods work well. You either have your content being used all over the Internet. With links pointing back to your site. Which is really important in Google's eyes.
Or you have people reading your work because of the information on it, and clicking the link in the resource box to your site or offer.
Article writing is a powerful tool in your traffic program. It may not make a huge difference over night, but the work you do today will stay out there for a long time. Its quite possible to see traffic from an article written several years ago.
