Best Article Mileage Strategy

by Jason Dittberner 3 replies
What is the best way to get the most mileage out of an article you write? Assuming you want to use the same article on your blog, HubPage, Squidoo Lens, and submit to Ezine. Is there a percentage/guide for how much it needs to be reworked (so it's not exactly the same) for each and is there an ideal word count for each source?

    The percentage is generally 85%.

    I shoot for 75% uniqueness. Not sure there's any hard-and-fast rule. For EzineArticles, it's important to write articles significantly longer than their minimum (250 words) when you're new there. You want Platinum Level status, and I've learned that they will upgrade only to Basic Plus there if you consistently write articles near the minimum - even if they're good. I would think 300+ is a good rule. 400+ is safer until you get Platinum.

    I think of Squidoo as a bit more in-depth. I've had a few lenses there, and I tried to make each one 500 words on the main page (or longer). I just think that gets you more links and interest from others. Be sure to point some links from Squidoo (and hubpages and your blog) to your EZA articles. That will push them higher in the Google rankings faster (sometimes, depends on the competitiveness of the keywords).
