A Little Article Marketing Advice Please!

Ok as I've been reading on here for a while, lots of people are into this "Article Marketing"? I was wondering if it's considered "duplicate content" if I have blog posts that I want to submit to these article submission places?? Also can I put my affiliate links in signatures?? Thanks guys for sharing your knowledge

    That will count as duplicate content. You could alternatively re-write your blogpost.

      Don't listen to this guy. You're fine to publish blog posts then submit it to article directories. You won't be penalized.

    No. You can post same article on many sites. Google indexes only one in search results (unless you search for whole article title)

      No, they will display the same article multiple times on a single search. I see it all the time.

      I just took a look at the thread you put up and it seems like its 50/50 that some post it on their site and the submissions and some don't...Guess Ill just take my chances. Also, can I put affiliate links in signatures when submitting? I was reading a success story from a guy on here who said he wrote 25 articles a week and included his sig to get sales from his affiliates. As far as I have read you cannot add affiliate sigs..kinda confused on that. Thanks!

    Hi Jeffrey, that's a good question when you're first starting out. Here's what I do -- usually I create a blog post and get it up on the blog. Then I copy/paste it into Word and polish it up a bit before posting to eZinearticles and other sites. My blog posts are more casual than my articles, so I try to make sure articles are as well written as I possibly can. This automatically takes care of duplicate content problems, and also means you're a lot more likely to get your article published. Which is one of the main points of article marketing, getting it published on other people's sites and ezines. As far as affiliate links go, you can put them in articles on eZinarticles.com, but it's a little tricky and you never know if they'll kick it out or not. Best way to do this is to put them in your Bio box. I've learned that the best thing to do is treat the bio box as the last paragraph of your article. Don't say -- Jeffrey is an internet marketer who sells X, or anything like that. Instead say something like -- So now you know a lot more about niches and how to find a good one. If you'd like a proven system that will walk you through researching step-by-step, I have an e-book that you'll love. It's available at Niche Detector -- and look for the popup and download my free report, you'll read it in one sitting, I guarantee. See the difference? Boring same old, or an interesting finish to the article. Guess which one gets clicked more? Yep, the last one. Hope this helps. Don't stress too much, change a few words and get it going.

        Yes, excellent information. Very good technique.

        How about having the link in your signiture point BACK to your blog post? Wouldn't that get two birds stoned at once... by building up your backlinks AND providing your affiliate link?

        On the other hand, I can see the value of striking while the iron is hot.

        Regardless, thanks for the advice.

    I agree with radhika, you can posts your articles to different sites. Just make sure you wont post it to the articles submission sites that are unique like hubpages, ezine, articlesbase, ehow, squidoo and buzzle.
    You can spin your articles as long as you like.

    Thanks for the thanks! Here's what I did when first starting out -- Pick one or two really good and well known IMers and go find their articles on eZinearticles.com, and see how they do their bio box/last paragraph. Copy some of the paragraphs you really like into a Word file, then study them, and use them to help you write your own bio boxes. Do a couple and see which one works best. First time I did this, I was amazed at the difference in response. And yes, linking to your blog post is a very good thing to do Bradley, it does improve your back links. Why not do both? You can have two links in your box. Or put one in one article, the other in the next article. Test your bio boxes, you might be surprised at which works best. I was.
