Naturally, this blog is going to be about how to make money online. What else would I be writing about here? There's no plan or purpose though. Just a place to share some insights every now and then when I've got more to say than I can fit in a forum post.

Article marketing may be a numbers game when it comes to writing a lot of material, but if you're on sites like EZA or GoArticles these sites respond really well to quality backlinks provided you've done your keyword research.

I've a number of articles on GoArticles for example that have gone to PR2 within 6 months with just one campaign of linking about 10 times from other article sites, HubPages and guestposting on blogs combined with one article posted from UAW. Of course I backlink these other articles as well, so they get a bit of authority coming through, but the thing I'm trying to say is this is really a no brainer.

It's not easy to get your articles ranked really well anymore in competitive niches and if you want the traffic to an article it's essential you rank because I know for a fact that article sites aren't getting the same traffic that relevant home pages are getting in the SERPS.

The way I know is that I managed to get an article into position 2 for a reasonable KW and then brought a niche site up to 3 so it ranked behind the article. In the next 6 weeks the site got more traffic than the article. I guess it's because the site looks more authoritative than the article for people looking at the URL. Or maybe it was just a fluke. I haven't been able to repeat the search rankings like that since.

If you want to really do well with your articles you'll need the best SEO software to find hundreds of quality keywords. I'm using Niche Refinery (available to members of TKAPro) for keyword research and UAW for backlinking and the combination is making me a lot of money.

The best thing about article marketing is it is an easy way to get content noticed without having to create a site around it, which I know is too much for a lot of people. Plus there's maintenance etc etc. I'm no article marketing pro, but if you get the SEO right you'll be doing yourself a lot of favors.
