Does submitting extra articles help?

by birdfood 15 replies
I've been doing a lot of article submission work lately on sites like ideamarketers and amazines.

The benefits I'm expecting from this are traffic to my site from article readers who click on links/anchor text and improve the ranking of my site for key words. Mostly though, improved rankings.

What I'm not sure of though is is the benefit of submitting additional articles. After you've submitted say 20-30 articles to a site, is there any additional benefit ranking wise from continuing to submit more articles?

    I'm sure there are quite a few folks on here with more experience than me as I am really just breaking in to the world of article marketing as a specific strategy.

    My understanding is that submitting more articles simply gives you more opportunities to get readers and potential click-throughs and show more links to your site.

    There are some folks on here with absolutely amazing stats and the number of articles sure seems to be a factor.

      Like trafficwave, I am new to this as well, so definitely check with so check with someone more experienced to make sure I am telling you the truth, but it is my understanding that in the beginning, you have to submit several articles to get intial ranking and traffic as well as getting recognized by the artilce site.

      Then once you've gotten 10-20 on the site, they increase your visibility and then you get another boost. This seems to happen at varying increments on some sites. I notice that EZine checks your status at 10 articles, then again at 100 (if I recall correctly). Each rais in number increases your promotion possibilities through their site as well as simply increasing rawnumbers.

      Another factor is that some sites only leave published articles up on the web for certain period of time, therefore, you need to get republished on a regular basis to maintain the backlinks you've already established.

      So basically, as I see it, writing more than 30 aricles has great benefit in the long run.

      There is another thread here that is discussing the use of JetSpinner to generate new titles and content so that you don't have to write so many articles, but you can continue to submit rewritten material and increase your submission numbers without having to spend so much time writing. There's more to it than that, like the argument that google removes links if the resource box is the same everytime, but I am no sure of this argument or even the details about the problems they seem to have wit multiple artile submission.

      I just write an article, submit it to two or three article sites, and write the next one a day or two later. I went from nothing published and no back lnks (obvious, but here I mean after a few weeks of submitting articles) to getting almost 100 publications and a noticable increase in traffic with just 26 articles using two resource boxes and two topics/niches.

      Hope this helps. Please ask more seasoned folks too, though.I could be horribly wrong! I hope not though...

        Thanks trafficwave and King Seesar.

        Can any of the experts tell me if additional submissions to the same article sites will improve search engine rankings for key words???

          I think submitting multiple articles is helping a lot in my case.

          Try to write each article with a slant toward a particular keyword. Usually, you will find that there are multiple terms and word combinations that people will use when searching for something.

          The key is to create natural and valuable content. As you contribute quality content, your exposure and credibility should build together.

    Hi personally I have not used ideamarketers and amazines.

    But I do submit huge amount of articles to my favourite ezinearticles.com and only one.

    I get alot of targeted readers to my blog as well as my product sales page.

    For your benefit, if you have a product, submitting more related and quality articles also means more sales or more optin into my freebie page.

    Cheers,
    John

      Submitting lots of articles can give you a lot more coverage if you target different keywords with each one (or a few articles per keyword since you'll probably run out if you write a ton of articles).

      Ideally, you'd want your articles to show up whenever someone searches for any related term in your niche.

    With my article marketing plan, I'm going to really concentrate on one site until I get around 200 clicks. If I don't get a sale, then I market another site.

    So, along that vein, I believe if you're not getting any sales, you probably shouldn't continue promoting that product. I think they say the average conversion is like 1%.

    Remember, what matters is conversion. Even 1,000 articles doesn't mean anything if the clicks aren't converting.

    The more quality articles you submit, the better. In my opinion, you can never submit enough articles. You get more backlinks plus the benefit of having visitors come from the article directories.

      Hey all, I have personally had real good luck placing articles with idea marketers. Ezine not so much luck. It is true that the more you write original good content the more exposure you get. That's clear as it gets.
      Good Pluck

      Think in terms of 'non-absolutes'.

      In other words, the more the better. The more articles you have, the more traffic you will get.

      As an entrepreneur, you have, technically, no limit on your income. There is no limit to how many articles you can submit either.

      There are people with 13,000 plus, 10,000 plus articles on just one directory. I'm not kidding around, this is a fact. This people know the power of volume.

      In some of his recent content, John Reese talks about owning more of the Internet with content. That's what you want to do with your articles - own more of the Internet. If you have more articles out there that drive tons of traffic back to your sites, you are owning more of the Internet.

      Let's not think in terms of article directories too. With your 'vault' of articles, you can create tons of web pages for your website, or submit them as blog posts daily to your blog. All this will result in huge traffic benefits - search engine rankings, blog directory traffic, RSS feeds traffic and the list just goes on.

      Never stop producing content. You don't have to write the content yourself too. You can create your own article producing team or content creation team to write content for you. That's where the real profits are made.

      It's only helpful when all your articles you submit are unique. Else google will count it as duplicate content. So in the end, you will only have one backlink

        in my opinion, since i am also a newbie, writing more and more articles will increase the probability of your link or site to be viewed by the readers. just always make sure it is really interesting and informative to read. and also, use some strategic places where you can actually post articles or submit them.
