Need More Content (re: Articles) and Article Directories

18 replies
So, I need more articles for my site, but it's pretty specific...other than article directories, where else should I look? I'm also looking for backlinks to other sites such as my own (anti-Toyota blog...or it could be a car enthusiast site in general).

    Yeah, hire writers to have them done for you. Articles from directories tend to requite you to add external links to the authors' sites. Getting unique content written will be well-worth it.

    Elance.com
    NeedAnArticle.com
    ODesk.com

    I like NAA 'cause the quality threshold is pretty high (the hiring process is simple, and writers seem to respond really quickly to requests). The cheapest you can get per 500-word article is about $5. That's not too bad, is it?

    Hope that helped.

      I'm good with backlinks, so long as I get one in return.

      I can, and do, since I enjoy writing about this (hating Toyotas LOL)...and I do have some writers on other blogs that I syndicate their articles, but I'm looking for either car enthusiasts, or auto industry insiders that share a hatred for Toyota (new ones, not old ones). Finding and sharing backlinks/articles with fellow enthusiast sites not only helps my site grow, but helps me look good in the eyes (or spiders) of the Googles.

    I agree with JaRyCu.
    Check out the Warriors for hire section as there are quite a few of us content writers who can help depending on your need and budget.

    Other than that, try vworker, odesk or elance.

    Be sure to mention your subject before paying or buying articles. Since you mention 'hatred' so often, some of them wont be ready to write...

    Thanks for the advice everyone...at this point in my life, I don't have the budget (re: money) to hire writers to write articles. That's why I wanted to go the article directory route.

    Toyota make great vehicles. Why do you hate them?

      Made is the keyword here, made.

      Perhaps they're still good down under (greetings from the Colonies! LOL), but here in America...not so much.

    If your website pulls in a reasonable number of visitors, why not ask a few similar website authors to do a guest post? they get some exposure and you get free content.

      That's the thing, I'm already doing this now, just looking for some more articles from fellow car writers/enthusiasts.

    Find writers with experience on your niche, because writer without good knowledge of your niche may fail to impress your readers instead of engaging them with their informative content, which in turn affect the number of visits & views. Search for automobile writer. Warrior is the best place to hire professional people as far as I know.

    If you want backlinks from sites related to your site, then try to contact site owners for link exchange. Or better, if sites you are targeting have blog, offer a free service of blog guesting. In return, you ask the site owner that your article must contain a link back to your site.

    You could look for another article writer who like's the topic and give him a share of the blog then you can both write so you get more content or find a large list of article directories as there will be some you don't know of.
