Step 1 - Write the article (500-1000) words, longer the better and publish it to MY SITE first.
Step 2 - Let Google Index the article (how do I check to see Google has done this?) and then submit my article to article directories like EZA, Goarticles, ArticlesBase etc. Do I need to do this manually or can I use software like Article Marketing Robot, or Article Post Robot to do this for me? Should I submit to the top 5-10 article sites only?
Step 3 - Use iSnare to mass publish the articles (is this necessary if I use Article Marketing Robot?) Do they both essentially do the same thing?
Step 4 - Check Google Analytics to see where I'm getting most of my traffic from and continue submitting articles to those directories that are sending most traffic (after of course publishing them on my site FIRST)
Please let me know if I'm missing anything (or if I am completely off-track!) and if this is a good way to get started with article syndication.
Many thanks in advance!
