Ezine and Basic SEO Question.

by lakerk 11 replies
I'm definitely new to internet marketing and article marketing, but have made some money in my niche (about 300-400$). So while I feel inept for the most part, I don't think I'm stupid.. anyways.

My question.

For a keyword , let's say its "acne cure quick". When I initially submitted an article to ezine, it was front page of google, and it made me some money. But after the initial "newness" burst from google, it quickly disappeared whereas I cannot find it on the first 20 pages(or at all for that matter. I stopped looking).

Would it make sense to write more articles pointing that that one ezine article "acne cure quick". I know traditionally you would write articles that link to your squeeze page to improve its pagerank, but I know in this highly highly competitive keyword I'm not going to get that page near the top of google.

I hope my question makes sense..

Ask if it doesnt.

Thanks again.

    You just need to write more articles. This is very normal.

    Also I'm curious as to how many articles you wrote to produce $300-$400.

    Every day, there are competitors competing for the same keywords as you, through articles, squidoo lens, hubpages, etc. Therefore, it is not unusual to see your articles drop off from top ranking time to time. For bum marketing, you need to write consistently and try not to depend only on articles to get good ranking.

    THere are other platforms that you need to tap on, such as social bookmarking sites like Digg and Reddit, Squidoo and Hub pages and other popular article directories such as Buzzle and GoArticles.

        Keep submitting articles. You should rewrite the article giving several different versions.

        Also, you need to make sure that you Rewrite the title. You can still utilize the keywords within the title just stacked differently. If you don't switch up your article ezine won't publish it.

        Use other keywords and longtail keywords as well for your article.
        The larger the net you cast the more fish you will catch.

          lakerk,

          What you want to know is, if you build links to your article will it improve
          its ranking, and possibly get you a first page result again?

          In my experience, it definitely helps. If I get an article that gets a ranking
          anywhere on the top 5 pages of Google I will build links to it and try to
          increase its relevance on the search engines.

            Instead of writing new articles to push your original article on top of google's SERPS why don't you try social bookmarking. You can always write new articles but don't waste the resource box of these to push your original article up. Instead use them to drive traffic to your merchan't website. Your original article dropped out because probably other competing pages had better information/inbound liks. It's dificult to exactly answer why it droppd out, but I once have tried socially bookmarking my article at EZA.com to see it re-appear on first page of google. I used onlywire.com to socially bookmark my article at EZA. Of course the keyword for which I was targetting was a low competition one so it worked.

            However I would suggest that you already have an article that creates sales, so why not build a website and put the same article on your website and start building inbound links slowly. It won't produce immediate results but YOU will be in charge of it and if you follow even the basic SEO guidelines you can easily achieve permanent rankings at Google's first page. This will add a permanent income stream for you.

              Thank you to the last two posters. You answered my actual question. To everyone else, stop regurgitating basic information to increase your post count.

              It's annoying.

                  There are so many people on this forum that just post on every single topic without even posting relevant information.

                  It makes browsing the forum a huge chore, because you have to read through pages of people saying the exact same thing over and over again to find that gem of wisdom from someone actually contributing.

                  I asked a specific question and I got generic responses from the first couple of people.

                  "submit more articles".. cmon. That's not even close to what I was asking.

                  I'm sorry if you feel that it's rude to be straightfoward. But this forum is brimming with shadyiness and deception.

                    Alright big guy calm down there. First you ask a question that is so basic in nature that it is almost rhetorical. And then you cry because you get "generic responses"? I fail to see where you're coming from...

                      I would show a little more humility and learn a little more, it will go a long way. You came here looking for some info. and then you go judging others and popping off about the forum. Dude, you just got here a couple of months ago ... take a chill!

                        Lakerk, what you want to do is start deep linking to your eza article using some of your same keywords through some web 2.0 sites like Squidoo and Hubpages.

                        I would also link your article bio anchor text to an article on a blog that you control setup with the same anxhor text keywords.
