I know, I know, there are a ton of these going around now. I will admit, article syndication seems to be a valuable method of generating traffic without worrying about google etc. This is my question, I have read through pretty much all of the posts on this topic, I have read what Alexa has to say, Tifflee's free report and a lot of the threads. Say you do your homework and get an article out to a few websites and traffic comes in. Are you directing them to a squeeze page or more of a blog set up with an opt-in form on the blog? Or, if your content is good enough in the syndicated articles should it not matter at all? It seems like if the value is good enough you would just have to mention something along the lines of "join my list for more articles...." and not make it salesy at all. Basically, are you letting the quality of your writing do the selling for you?
