So basically, if I'm giving my article to people for free (other than a backlink or two) they get the majority of the benefit from it, they receive a fresh article that their readers have probably never read before and can place their ads all over it, additionally I've heard that it's not a good idea to place any of your affiliate links inside the article you provide for syndication as they are less likely to accept it. So, I understand that they may have way more of a following than me and as such can bring a trickle of traffic into my own website in comparison to theirs, but on the other hand the huge majority are going to read that article without ever clicking on the link to my website.
Maybe I'm missing the greater picture here, since i'm new to article marketing, but I almost feel as though it's worth sending them half of my article (with the main bits intact) so that if readers are further interested in reading specifics that they will be more likely to click on my link to read more info on it. This thought of mine is conflicting with the advice of some people, who say that it is best to give the whole unedited article. Why would someone want to click on your link and potentially click on your google ads if they already have the full picture? I guess that unless you have another article on your website that is directly related to the one they are reading, they would most likely not be interest in visiting my website (I know I wouldn't and rarely do unless I want to read more on the same topic).
