This article is dedicated to those who are afraid to challenge themselves and go out on the edge and prove that if they can do it so can I.
While, no one manual can teach anyone affiliate marketing or how to market a business successfully online, there is one method that can.
And that is: The method of trial and error, where failure is not an option.
So with that said, I would like to prove without a doubt;
Why Writing Articles Is Much Better Than Search Engine Optimization.
There Is No Competition When It Comes To Writing Articles.
Do you know that one keyword rich article can bring you thousands of hits for years to come?
To discover this, I jumped into the article publishing business and started reading every article I could find on how to write and publish artilces online.
Well, this is not easy for newcomers, but I had to prove that if they could do it so could I. So, I wote my first article and kept checking the search engines. The increase in traffic grew steadily and my article started a life on it's own. That one article was being distributed all over the net.
I had absolutely no one competing with me only websites picking up my article and adding it to their article directories. My life as publisher began, and every week I wrote another article, getting more exposure for free.
Search Engine Optimization Is For Experts, Articles Don't Have Changing Algorithm.
While Search Engine optimization is the best method for getting free traffic from the search engine, you have to be a SEO expert to remain in the top ten for highly competetive keywords. The search engines are constantly changing and updating their algorithm, making it more difficult to maintain top positions.
Now, with article writing on the hand, I don't worry about any algorithm changes, all I have to focus on is keyword rich content and quality information that readers will be happy to get their hands on.
You Don't Have To Exchange Links To Increase Your Ranking.
Would you believe me if I told you that your ranking will increase with all the back links you get from one top article.
Yes, it's true. If you can get one hot article online, you will be amazed to see how many article directories will post this article on high PR pages (yes, pages with PR6 or higher).
All these links will be pointing back to your site, giving you a boost in your ranking.
Now, as for Search Engine Optimization, you will have to come up with a great internet marketing strategy to get high PR sites to add your link to their site. You will have to do some Join venture deals or give them one of your own products for free, or just try plain old fashion email, and hope you will get a response.
All It Takes Is A little About Box At the Bottom Of Your Article.
This is often over looked by many affiliate marketing article publishers. You wrote such a great article and there is no link back to your website, so your name is spreading all over the Internet, but your sight is suffering from lack of traffic.
If your going to write articles, please don't ever forget to add your signature file in the about box. If they don't have one just append it to the end of your article. Make sure that the about box is allowing HTML, if not just add your website link.
I have to admit, that my first couple of articles got my name out there, but the about box had no link back to my site.
Now for Search Engine optimization, there are many factors you have to consider and I must admit that your better off purchasing a SEO-Book that will teach you the proper way to optimize your pages. Don't overlook this fact, but you need a little of both to make thing just perfect. So, Search Engine Optimization and Article writing go hand in hand.
Anyway, I do hope that you see the importance of article writing and that you will be bold enough to venture out into cyber space and publish your first article. It only takes one, to see the effect.
