Another question about ezinearticles

by hjalte81 13 replies
Hi guys and gals..

Two weeks ago I've started to do something about my article marketing And IM in general.

I've created a blog where I will log my progress and started applying everything I knew and all I could find in here (see my signature)

A couple of days ago my first article got approved at ezine articles and instantly I could see the traffic rising.

Now I've got a question for you all;

Say I write 1 article and submit to ezine. When It gets approved is it best to submit the same article to say 20 other directories (without changing the content at all) or would it be better to write a new article and submit it to about 20 directories, but changing the ressource box link to my article at ezine?

Hope you get my question...

      Thanks...
      Do you only sumbit your articles to ezines then?

    My experience is the same although I have submitted to other sites as well. Some people get approved on Ezine first then submit to other articles site include backlinks to both their target website and to their Ezine article.

    The main thing I have found is that researching a correct placement of keywords/key phrases is the real traffic driver. I have articles that generate a constant stream of traffic.

    Here is what I do based on my testing

    1. Post my original article to EzineArticles
    2. Rewrite 2 additional versions of this article
    3. Post one of these articles to Article City and Go Articles
    4. Post the other to the other top Article Directories

    As far as return on time invested this is what works best for me. With that being said the more you can change with each submission the better off you are. Even if you just change the titles and resource boxes you are ahead of the game.

      Thanks for answering.

      So you write three articles that are alomst identical?
      And the ressource box link all point to the same URL?

    Ther are two other article directories that I would try -

    Buzzle, you will need an original article for this one and

    Website-articles.net, this one charges $10 a month - but it is worth it - you can add pictures to your article and you will get 24 hour approval - best of all there is no other advertising on your article page and you get the highest click throughs here - the traffic doesn't flood instantly like with ezine, but over time it bulds up - Steve wagenheim did a brilliant post about Website-articles "walking the walk"

    Hope that helps

      :confused: Interesting site and I like the layout, but...where does the traffic come from :confused:

      Google PR=0
      Alexa traffic ranking=70656 (ezinearticles is 254)
      Links to site = 37 (source: Google)
      ...plus I've checked some top viewed articles and they do not appear in Google serp's.
      :confused:

      Some article views will result from article marketers ... I clicked on several articles to check them out.

        Hi JustVisiting,

        When we went "private", we purged approximately 30,000 articles from our database, many of which had backlinks pointing to them. Basically, we just started over from scratch a few months ago. You should have seen my Google Webmaster Tools! Google's PR algorithm obviously picked up on this. It was previously a PR4.

        So a 70,000 Alexa 3-month rank (and climbing) for an article directory with only about 1,000 indexed articles (at that time) is actually pretty good.

        Most of our traffic comes from Google, but we get a lot from the other search engines as well. We also get a significant amount of traffic from social sites, other websites and emails (from ezines).

        There are a lot of testimonials on this forum about the directory and the traffic people get from it. And due to the dynamic nature of our article pages, they are also experiencing more sales than they see from others.

    Hi, also I have known gurus to tell you, you can post the same article to different article databases, I don't know how well that goes over, but if you have it on ezine articles, that is a good first step. You would also want to book mark your article so that it has more links going to it.

    Another good thing to do is social bookmark your aritcles for high page rank. If you write one article to ezine and another to goarticles they can both bring in ALOT of traffic if you social bookmark them.

    One thing you should do is if you consider posting the article at AssociatedContent.com then you will need to rewrite the article because I have found that they are extremely picky about accepting your article if it shows up on ezinearticles.com or another webmaster's site.

    Also, by rewriting the article and submitting it to associatedcontent.com you have an opportunity for ranking high in the search engines htrough their site and also getting paid for your article from them.

    I'm also recommending that if you plan to submit your article anywhere else you should try and have a different version for various reasons (not so much for a duplicate content issue but more visitor stickiness and retainablility).

    Respectfully,
    Tim

    a) You don't have to wait until your EZA article is approved before you can submit the article to other places.

    b) Yes, it's better to submit an unique article to each directory but this method also requires that you invest more time (and money probably). You must decide if it is worth it or not by simply testing each single directory. The numbers will be different in different niches.

    c) You must decide what you want more, links or traffic. Fore example, EZA brings most traffic but not too many backlinks. One method I use is articlemarketer.com which submits to many many places, including EZA.

    My advice is to put your best article up on ezinearticles. They're the sine qua non of article submission sites. Then re-do it once and submit it to the rest of the article sites (changing at least 50% of the content, but that's not as hard as you would think... changing words like college to school, from trade to exchange, etc.) These guys tend to be not quite as good as ezinearticles, but will spread your article more widely and have more inbound links.

    Mike,

    Thanks for your in-depth theory about Website-Articles.net. Your experience and knowledge of the industry certainly shine through.

    If you are skeptical, then please don't bother. This is for serious, experienced article marketers with professional integrity and substantial goals in mind.
