How many articles per day?

56 replies
1)When creating articles for your website to generate more backlinks and traffic. Should I submit daily 2 articles linking back to my homepage and 2 more for each internal website link?
For example if my website had 6 pages that would be a total of 16 article submissions.

or

2)Should I just submit 2 articles today linking back to my homepage and tomorrow 2 more for one of my internal website links?


I'm asking this because I'm wondering if what I mention in my first question if google would consider my site spam and flagged it.

Thanks,
JBarros

    JBarros, respectfully (and I mean that - I'm not criticising, here), you're actually asking "the wrong question".

    Article marketing isn't really about "numbers of articles". At all. (If it helps you, or gives you something to think about, I've been building a big, successful, article marketing business across 8 or 9 different niches over the last 3 years, and I write about 25 articles, in total, per month, and it's almost unimagineable that you should want or need to produce more than that, when you're starting off. What matters is how you use them).

    If you're thinking of 16 articles per day, and/or thinking of article marketing as "a form of SEO", you've already gone far astray, down the path that leads toward all those hundreds of threads here with titles like "Article Marketing Doesn't Work".

    Here's a little thread, which (with the links inside it) will get you orientated toward "what article marketing's really about": http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ries-work.html

      Out of all the crap, and misinformation I see here in the forum. This is a breath of fresh air.

      Article marketing is changing, and when you listen to someone like alexa, that is obvious. The smart article marketer in 2012 are going to do well. I mean the ones that actually write articles without spam or those idiotic spinning software will do well. You need high quality first, then syndication. Which Alexa has gone through quite thoroughly. Becareful...there is a lot of crappy misinformation on article marketing right now! Especially in here. Just saying. Good luck.

    Hey JBarros,

    Here are some guidelines for you.

    - 1-2 new posts per day max
    - 50% minimum links go to the home page
    - Mix up your anchor texts with broad, phrase and exact matches

    If your just putting articles on external sites manually you don't
    really have to worry about building links to fast.

    If you are using submission software be careful in the first 3-6 months.

    After that you can build links faster.

    Hope this helps.

    Some article marketing experts say that you need to write alot of articles. Heck, even EzineArticles say that you need to write at least 2,000 articles to see real results with your article marketing efforts. I purchased a WSO 2 months ago from this famous article marketer, and he suggested submitting at least 10 articles per day on EzineArticles. Does his methods work? Well he says all he does is article marketing, and when you take a look at his Alexa rankings... he's getting a TON of traffic.

      They will say that, won't they?!

      That doesn't make it true.

      And it isn't. As many Warriors can vouch for (and do, every day!).

      They're actually talking about "article directory marketing", not "article marketing", anyway - whatever they call it. The difference is pretty clearly explained in this thread, and in about 100 others: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ries-work.html

      Even if it is only a fraction of the traffic he'd be getting if he didn't try to use article directories for a different purpose from the one for which they exist?

      It's easy to imagine that you're getting traffic from article directories, when what you're actually doing is sending your traffic to article directories, rather than to your own site (and losing most of it), as explained here.

      It's a really "thorny" subject to discuss.

      The great mistake people commonly make, in this context, is that they imagine that the best advice will come from the people with the "most experience", and that those people are the ones who submit the highest numbers of articles to directories. The reality is very, very different.

      The best advice is more likely, really, to come from those with the most successful experience, who typically have far smaller numbers of articles and use them more wisely. You have nothing beneficial to learn at all from people who are producing thousands of articles: they've missed the point. :p

    The number of articles will never outweigh the quality of the articles being submitted. An article that does all the things it needs to do will do more for you than 25 half a$$ed ones a day.

    I have noticed consistency seems to pay bigger dividends.

    Just opinion here but I don't think G could care less if you are putting out 1000 articles a day that are actually delivering quality and following the subject matter of the title.

    A good thing to remember ... no search engine will find all the articles or links you build at one time. People get slapped for being an idiot a lot of the time and blame it on building too many links or submitting too many articles at one time.

    I actually do 1 post per day but 3 times a week will do.. Just make sure you create a pillar article every week. Also you can create an article and post it on another blog with a link pointing to your money site. Same sched - 3 times a week and 1 pillar article per week. Just don't forget to bookmark them for faster indexing.

      We have had a lot of success with article marketing. The guys that hire 7 monkeys are 7 typewriters and outsourcing 20 articles a day are not really seeing the value here.

      If you have 1 really good, well written article, high quality. Not spun crap....taht is much better than having 20 articles out there of verbatim crud, that is really no use to anyone. it is just taking up virtual real estate.

      In 2012, its more about high quality and syndication. Many people scratch their head at both even still. And there is even spinning services here in the warrior forum. Do not use them, you are waisting your time. Write high quality first and then learn syndication - alexa is the go to girl for this, and has spent hours in here posting how to best do this, for the best results.

    Article writing and submissions are always a topic that gets people jumping. My take is to learn the basics of how to write a good article and then learn where to submit that article for the best results. I wrote an article that you might want to look at, as it will help you to understand not only how to write a great article, but gives some guidance on where to submit it.

    As far as how many articles to write. Consistance is the main thing. One two ten a day is not really the point, the point is that you set a goal and stick with it. And of course quality is much more important then how many. The search engines are looking more and more for the best articles and not how many.

    Anyway here is the link to the article that I wrote on the topic.

    It's not about the number of articles you write per day, it's about the quality of your articles. I submit 3 articles per week and they are doing just fine for my website. EzineArticle is looking for quality articles with plenty of values. If you are writing 2 articles per day you need to ask yourself are they of value to your readers and are they quality materials.

    You don't want any old backlinks to your site, you want high quality backlinks and to get those your articles must be of high quality and of value for readers with a good high PR site to want to link back to you.

    So, it's not the quanty but the quality.

    Honestly, for me, it's hard to write more than 3 articles a day. Quality has become much more important than quantity even in terms of SEO.

    Spinning articles can damage your website more than help it if you don't know what you're doing.

    Writing ONE great article can bring in much better results than TWENTY crappy spun content.

    A great article a day brings tons of traffic your way

      I spend one day researching and organizing and another day writing. After I'm done writing, I will proof it several times and then go through the process of syndication.
      When you say a day to research do you mean you spend more than 8 hours just for researching?

          Are you not afraid (if you do it of course) to research from the web? For the few articles I've written, I've followed Alexa's advice and researched only from offline sources, that is, the electronic formats of hardcover books found on Amazon mostly.

            I do both. I have no problem researching on the web. It does not take much of a trained mind to figure out what is "authority" and what is, decidedly, not.

            Additionally, I enjoy logging into my library's website (paid membership) to use their EBSCO host database. For some of the obscure niches that I write for, I have absolutely no problem digging into academic, peer-reviewed journals to pull out some themes and ideas.

            ... when I'm writing something technically sound, these articles are usually a hit because of the amount of academia-infused ideas within them.

      I beleive 5-7 articles per week should do fine. Understand that quality is more important than anything. Make your research well and try to have most of the back links to your home page. Research your information well and give it in a appealing way. By this way, even if it is going to take long time, you will still have sustainable results.

        Hi there,

        Whilst I do agree with Alexa and Tifflee's views, you have to consider other variables such as one's own ability to write numerous quality content articles in one day or even your own time ( Only 24 hours in a day right? !

        Let's say 6 articles per day! 3 for each blog and I am not talking about crappy little 400 word articles! I no longer post articles that aren't at least 1000 word long! In fact, mine are usually between 1000 to 1700 words.

        I am currently doing my PHD (writing has become easy so to speak) and besides, I have built a couple of blogs, to which I add 3 to 4 long articles per day! After 2 years of going round in circle and CLEARLY misunderstanding the real concept of article marketing (and doing article directory marketing instead and this WITHOUT BUILDING A LIST hahaha ), I finally got to grips with it thanks to Alexa, TPW, Celente, Paul Uhl and other fantastic writers and advisers.

        Now, just a few ideas I'd like to share!

        (i)The concept of syndication is what works best to me now but depending on the niche, you may have to write more articles; at least, this is what I have found out for myself!Let's take IM for instance, and I know many here will find that this isn't the perfect example! Yet, there is so much crap out there that you still have a chance to make a difference, especially now since 98% of "article marketers" are still focusing on submitting to article directories before getting their articles on their sites indexed first etc etc....

        (ii) Also, depending on your goal, if you are a good writer, a good grasp of what article marketing is and how to use syndication, there is nothing wrong in wanting to write as many GOOD QUALITY ARTICLES as possible (not for article directories or SEO (how boring) but just to get your message across that there is a new kid on the block! lol! I tend to do this solely because I am quite " shy" and EXTREMELY LAZY with regards to contacting people and offering my articles etc! So, at the moment I do rely on passive syndication although I should take a leap and get started! It is never too late, is it?

        (iii) Many article marketers regard Lance Winslow and Sean Mize as the absolute kings in terms of article marketing! Well, I had a few discussions with Lance Winslow himself, whose articles are usually very pertinent, well-written and interesting and he told me that he does rely on passive syndication because he is busy writing articles! Of course, considering his status as number one at Ezine, you do see the picture right? This said, Lance writes all his articles by himself and submits them to Ezine only! You could regard this as a real achievement too and in this case mention the fact that in the QUALITY Vs QUANTITY debate, Quality wins but if you can do both, then you are likely to be a step ahead , aren't you?


        Not looking for a long debate but this is what I have found out after a few years of writing short articles ( which by the way still brought in a fair amount of money) considering the fact that I hadn't really grasped that article marketing was everything but article directory marketing!

        These are my two cents!! Take it or leave it! Lol!

        Have a nice evening/night/day folks!

        Yoan

          Why "numerous"?

          I'm building up 8 unrelated niches with a total of 25 articles per month, and seriously can't imagine anyone needing to do more than that.

          I can readily envisage people earning a very good full-time living with a lot less than that, though.

          No ... let's not!

          Surely nobody can possibly write 6 syndication-quality articles per day?!

          Let's say 3 or 4 articles per week. That's far more realistic, for most people.

          I would honestly look at this differently, and say "you have to achieve more syndication", not "you may have to write more articles". Otherwise it isn't really working.

          Ah ... "the truth emerges" ...

          Yoan, seriously, this is why it isn't working for you, and you find that you need more articles. You're not "doing syndication": you're doing only "passive syndication".

          The sooner you stop relying only on passive syndication, the sooner you'll no longer need "more articles" and will have a lot more success and income from a lot less starting-material.

          I do indeed.

          With no disrespect to the person you're talking about, the picture is as I observed above.

          The great mistake people commonly make, in this context, is that they imagine that relevant advice may come from the people with the "most experience", and that those people are the ones who submit the highest numbers of articles to directories.

          The reality is very, very different.

          More helpful and realistic advice may well come from those with the most successful experience.

          They typically have far smaller numbers of articles and use them more wisely and productively, which you are not doing, at the moment. Seriously, Yoan, you have nothing beneficial to learn at all from people who are producing thousands of articles: they've missed the point. I'm not talking specifically about the gentleman you mentioned, whom I don't know at all, but thinking of another couple of well-known ones with really large article numbers who have commented here on their incomes, and clearly their income per article works out at a very tiny fraction of that of someone who's using the article syndication model rather than simply hoping for "passive syndication".

                    Oh Alexa... bad girl! Happy New Year by the way! Sorry didn't reply to all of your responses but thought the "because I am worth it" would be enough! Lol! After all, L'Oreal is French, so I am allowed! LOl!

                    Well, we do have conflicting views on a few things, namely passive/active syndication...the time will come....lol....when I will contact people!

                    This said, I am really thinking of signing up for Charlie Page's programme!

                    Look, it took me 2 years to understand that list building was IMPORTANT, how do you expect me to understand Syndication in FULL in 6 months flat! HAHA!! :

                    I am a sllloooww learner or shall I say a very slow "decider"....and it is an affliction!! Don't laugh!

                    On the other hand, I swear that I honestly can write "numerous" long and syndication worthy articles within a day! Don't take this away from me! haha! Yeah not everyone can do it, but I can, at least I try! :

                    Anyway, PHD in..E...C....O... yes, I can understand although Paul's advice would come in handy right now with the fabulous Euro meltdown! Lol!

                            The whole service is really very good. You get a lot of good advice that way, too - and Charlie is definitely "one of the good guys".

                              One thing about the low exchange rate of the euro against the US dollar. It's not working in my favour at the moment. Most of my client payments are in US dollars, and the nearer they get to parity, the worse it is for me.

                              Hmmm ... before my time ...

                              The Spanish came in to South America and messed up a LOT of things. The region I live in is where all the Conquistadores came from.

                              Hernán Cortés who conquered the Aztecs grew up in a village about 90 minutes from where I live. Francisco Pizarro who conquered Peru came from my nearest town, Trujillo, about 30 minutes drive from where I live, Francisco de Orellana came from another nearby village, and he discovered the Amazon river, though I'm sure a few local indians had noticed it previously, and there were lots of others.

                              They were a bunch of nasty people, but here in this region of Spain, they are all considered heroes. I guess it all depends on your individual perspective.

    I agree with Alexa Smith. Go for quality, not quantity. Always think about serving real people.

    I was actually surprised that when the Google Panda change happened, my sites all rose in the rankings many to page one. I think that is because over the years I've posted quality articles and they have gotten wide syndicated naturally and organically which gave me a lot of great backlinks.

    So know, I only write one article every week or two for each area, make sure it is unique, original and valuable and then post it on qondio.com and ideamarketers.com with the sharing setting set to "can copy but not modify but must include complete bio".

    Most of them get syndicated thousands of times. Once they are through the process on qondio.com, I post them on my own blogs and/or sites and share them on social networks.

    This had gotten me less but very highly targeted traffic that converts really well.

    Article writing and linking to your site, or indirectly linking to your site, is really the same as putting content on your own website.

    The advantage of this is, the content is being seen at a lot more places on the internet and will receive more visitors than perhaps your site might have otherwise seen.

    If the content within these articles is well written, informative and topical you will see a lot more visitors to your main site.
    So on this basis, the more articles you have in article directories, the more visitors you will get.
    Content is King

      Content is king but if you can have syndicated you will get much better results, I agree with this!

      There is also the BRUTE FORCE, as Steve Waggenheim once said! It can work but then you can and will burn out and in 99% of the cases, you will end up in a nutt house and your subscribers will be left with nothing, no more news! LOL!

      Quality and quantity with a wonderful syndication network, how about that?

      Waiting for Alexa now.....

      I hope not for that reason, though!

      As a full-time, professional article marketer, the very last thing I'd want would be for potential customers to find my article in a directory rather than finding it on my own site! (Talk about "wasteful"!). :p

      Fortunately, as long as one understands how article directories work, one can very easily circumvent that potential problem: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ries-work.html

      Yes, and if it weren't for your boys from the 'hood, there would be no M&Ms, Nestle, Cadbury, Swiss Miss, etc. The Spanish took the cocoa bean, and spread it far and wide; over 3million tons worldwide grown every year.

      I know! I am surrounded by them! I live in a little village in the middle of the country where it's as Spanish as it gets. Believe me!

      Some of the nicest people I have ever met are my friends and neighbors in the village I live in, and I really mean that. It's just that some of the Conquistadors who went over to South America, and who did some pretty bad things, were not very nice people.
