A great way to get highly targeted traffic plus relevant one-way backlinks to your site is through writing and submitting unique articles. Submitting these articles to free article directories or other websites that accept article submission will reward your website with valuable visits and backlinks
Your article submission will reap visitors, so make sure you keep your website content easy to read as well as relevant and useful to your viewers. When search engines decide who to give the highest ranks to, they look at and weigh a few different factors. These factors include links but also content as well. Search engines have a tendency to place the websites with the best content at the top of the rankings list.
The whole reason to submit articles to directories in the first place is to generate a bunch of one-way links pointing back to your site, which will in turn increase your daily traffic. Free article directories love your article submissions – if you give them an article/content they reward you with one-way links.
Make sure your articles are as effective as possible. Don’t forget to put your name at the end, and take credit for your articles. Place the URL correctly in the resource box in order for it to get counted properly – you wouldn’t want to be making all your submission efforts in vain.
Spend time when planning the short pitch that your resource box gives. Create a strong call to action so that people will want to click to visit your site – give them a good reason to click. If your resource box doesn’t sell the idea of visiting your website or engaging in your offer effectively, some benefits of your article and article submission will be put to waste.
When writing the article itself, follow a few simple guidelines. Don’t write in the third-person narrative. Write the article as if you were directly talking to the reader. This makes it more personable and will allow you to build a strong relationship with the reader. Give yourself credit when it’s due, if you’ve accomplished something that is worth mentioning, do it. You’ll want to create a positive image for yourself in the minds of the reader, you want their trust.
Always be sure to double-check the links in your resource box. There’s nothing worse than getting a great article out there only to find out that the HTML was coded wrong, so the link is broken.
