Did you know that you might really boost your traffic by submitting your own articles to suitable article directories? Does it actually work or is it all hype? How do you do it?

First of all, article marketing really does work and it works in two different ways at the same time, depending on the quality of the article sites that you are using.

Readers directly to your site – on a good article directory, one that exists to satisfy readers’ needs rather than just as search engine bait, there will be a good readership to the submitted articles. Both readers already browsing their web site and finding your article and also new readers finding the directory through your writing.

Is this hype? Certainly not! Yes, write an average article and you might merely get a handful of traffic reading your work and then clicking on the links in your biography, but with a little research you could find topics to write about and get lots of visitors. My best article to date is currently averaging practically 2 traffic per day from the article website to my site. This figure alone makes sense of article writing,

Search engine optimisation – again, pick your article directory vigilantly and the links in the article will be followed by the search engines. If the directory is also well structured, the page should gain a decent page rank, which will act as a huge boost to the optimisation of your own site!

So, how do you go about submitting original articles to sites? It is quite simple really, here are my simple steps to success!

  1. Write an article – only write round what you know about on the topic of your web site. Answer questions that are often asked or provide some useful advice? Really stuck with writing? Take a look at some of the content writing services round on the internet, but be certain that the writing you are given will be unique, totally unplagiarized and become your copyright so that you might submit it to article sites as your own.
  2. Sign up to an article directory – there are loads about, take a look around for one apt to submit your work to. Not sure where to submit to? Simple – do a search for articles in your niche and see what article sites they are on. Now, submit your article!
  3. Do it all again – you have done it once, so rewrite your article and find a different directory to submit it to. Straightforward! There are even spinning devices on the market to help you quickly rewrite articles, but just take care that though you do need to spin it loads, that the writing does not become totally unreadable.

That is it! The 3 stages to writing articles and submitting them to article sites. Invest a little bit of time researching what phrases people are searching on and you will increase the readership of your article within the directory, which increases the impending of them then calling into your website. It might seem hard work, but it does work and the evidence is there to see.
