Hello, I was wondering if I wrote some articles which link to my website, where would I post these?

Would I post them in places like article directories etc? Maybe squidoo?

Thanks.

    How about posting the article on your own site? I have never been a fan of giving my work away. When I write and article, it goes on my site.

    If you want to post articles on other sites, find some related forums and post the articles there. At least then you appealing to a targeted audience.

    On generic article sites, your appealing to a non-targeted group.

      I was wondering about the forums, Are there any good fiverr forums?

      I do have a blog on my site and do you think I should post there? (its the fiverr site in the second link in my sig) I have a specific keyword I am also going for so do you recommend that I use that alot throughout? Will this help my ranking?

      Thanks.

    Post it on your own blog! (or site.) This will help brand YOU as a leader and establish your credibility.

    Rather than put it on someone else's site..

    Post to your site, then elsewhere! But make sure it is apparent that YOUR site has the original copy!

    First, post them on your own website. Then, once Google has indexed them, think about other places, such as EzineArticles.

    Posting them first on your own site will give YOU the full benefit of them.

    I think you should post your valuable articles on your website. If you are planning to post one article on multiple directories then it might be attract two or three links from each directory, but it will decrease the value of article content. On the other side, if you publish article on your website and promote them individually, then it would be more beneficial for website popularity and SEO as well.

    On your own site first. Everything else is secondary to this.

    Don't give away, to other people's sites, the cumulative, long-term SEO benefits arising from the initial indexation-rights to your work. For all the (shared) reasons explained in such detail here, by so many professional article marketers.

    Agreed, add them to your own website first as a blog post. Then after you can start adding it to other article directories and such.

      This depends on many things (such as how good you are at keyword research, the SEO-quality of the sites above you which you hope to outrank, and so on).

      But the primary aim of article marketing is to get high quality articles in front of highly targeted traffic: SEO benefits are an additional objective.

      It's possible to make plenty of sales through article marketing by having articles syndicated to places where highly targeted traffic can read them (and it's actually possible to do that even with small numbers of articles, and even in quite competitive niches, without SEO, per se, necessarily being a consideration at all).

      SEO, in this context, is inherently non-quantitative. From the perspective of article marketing, looking at it in terms of "how many articles" is - to put it very mildly and politely - a "second-best approach".

        Is this a good article? here, it is the first one.

        Thanks.

          I don't work in this niche at all - it's entirely outside my experience, sorry.

          It's clearly not an article anyone will re-publish (though I appreciate that isn't what it was written for, of course ).

          I don't understand why you've put so many clickable links to Fiverr in the article?

          The typeface could perhaps be a little bigger? I'm young and have a big screen but I can envisage others possibly having slight difficulty reading the text?

          You've checked that "Fiverr" isn't a registered trademark, I hope, before using the name in your url?

          I can offer a few more general observations on the text (in order, top to bottom), if they help ...

          (i) You should remove the apostrophe in the word "idea's" in the heading of your site (no need for an apostrophe, to pluralise a word);

          (ii) "If you may not have heard" is clumsy: "If you haven't heard" or "In case you haven't heard" would be better;

          (iii) "Alot" isn't one word;

          (iv) The word "but" (on the same line) should start with a Capital Letter, being the first word of a sentence;

          (v) The word "of" (on the next line) should also start with a Capital Letter;

          (vi) And the same for the word "if" (two lines below);

          (vii) Where you say "because I wanted everyone to share their success", I think you may mean "because I wanted everyone to have some success", or something more along those lines? You're not specifically inviting people who've been successful at Fiverr to describe their successes, as much as offering to encourage others, show how success is possible and benefit your visitors, I think?;

          (viii) Where you refer to "popular consistent selling Fiverr gigs", you could put a comma after "popular" and hyphenate "consistent-selling" (or perhaps say "consistently-selling" or just "best-selling"?);

          (ix) The grammar is wrong, where you say "I also offer a 'sign up' service which is a mailing list which I will send you very useful information": you need to say "... in which I will send you very useful information" because the first "which" refers to the noun "service" (you could hyphenate "sign-up", too, which is an adjectival phrase qualifying the noun "service");

          (x) "check" needs a capital "C";

          (xi) You need an apostrophe in "its" where you say "its only free" (and strictly, it would be better to amend the word order and say "It's free only for a limited time", as the word "only" is qualifying the time, not the fact that it's free);

          (xii) Small point, but I think "everyone on my mailing list" might be better than "everyone in my mailing list"?;

          (xiii) Where you say "After 1 month from now it shall cost $5 for a yearly subscription", I think "will" sounds better (and I'm not convinced about the "timing" element of this, if you'll excuse the observation - especially with it being undated - this might confuse people?).

          I hope the editing suggestions compensate for my inability really to answer the question you asked!

            If it is really actually good content, you should put it on your website. After all, when people search for the content, where do you want google to send the people? Keep your good stuff for yourself!
            I used to think that it was a good idea to also put it on quality sites like ezinearticles... but it seems that that strategy just send traffic there, instead of to my site.
            If the article is really good, put it on your site, and keep it to yourself. IMHO.

            Thanks, besides grammar is it a good article?

            I shall make grammatical changes soon and the font.
