Article Marketing Tips for Beginners

in Article-marketing

In the world of search engines the most popular terms that people are searching for are topics like web hosting reviews, backlink strategy and article marketing strategy. All of these search terms are important but the most important search term is article marketing strategy. Why? Article marketing is an affordable way to direct traffic to any website and create backlinks at the same time.

How to Write an Effective Article

  • Keyword Research – Before writing your article, spend some time researching the most frequently searched for keywords that relate to your niche. Once you have at least five keywords you should have a primary keyword that's used in your headline and repeated at least two times in your article. Besides your primary keywords you should have at least three keywords that are used one time each in your article as well too.
  • Content – Always focus on writing original content; never plagiarize content that was written by someone else. Plagiarism is a serious offense online that will ruin your online reputation and also your websites ranking.
  • Word Count – Your articles should always be over 400 words. Why? Major article directories are now requiring articles to be over 400 words or they won't accept them. Writing an article with a bigger word count is a good practice to get into because, if you can offer "meatier" content to your readers you will gain respect and quickly build up base of loyal fans.
  • Multiply – Once you've written an article you should submit it to the top, do-follow, article directories. You want to focus on do-follow directories because, they have a higher search engine ranking and the backlinks that you get from these sites will help to raise your websites ranking quicker as well too.

How Many Articles per Week?

You can never have enough articles pointing to your website but you have to use common sense if you're working fulltime and focusing on internet marketing part time. The best strategy is to focus on writing one article per day, if you can write more, write more but make sure that you stick with the mantra "quality first" because, quality content will pay off every single time.

When you are building you website may be concerened with analyzing web hosting reviews but as your site grows your focus should turn towards web content. Content is a valuable capital in today's web based economic climate.
