I know article marketing is a great way to drive traffic to my site.
My question is this.
I've heard two sides.
Pro: EzineArticles.com gets tons of traffic and has a consistent page rank of 6.
Con: (not my words but statements I've read summed up) I'm not going to build content for another website.
My thoughts are this: Yes, ezinearticles does get tons of traffic and does have a page rank of 6 however my article on ezinearticles has no actual page rank so it's not like I have a back link from a pr 6 page. I have a backlink from a pr 0 page and the chance that someone visiting ezinearticles.com will search my keywords and visit my site. I understand this is probably a good thing because the more pages with them the more traffic I might get.
I notice some Warriors have 2,000, 5,000 or more articles with EA.
I just wonder to myself what if the article author set up his own site with his own thousands of articles on it. Do this with another host and have full control of your resource box.
The first answer I hear is put some on EA and others elsewhere.
Question: Have any of you Warriors skipped EA and only published to your own sites?
How has it worked for you?
