Personally, I was skeptical as to the benefits, if any. Then I did some testing
and saw some interesting results.
1. The blog entries actually get read, and not necessarily by forum members,
though I can't prove this. My suspicions, however, come from some search
engine surfing. Which brings me to.
2. Using one blog entry as a test, I did a search on a specific keyword phrase
to see which site ranked the highest between this forum, Ezine Articles and
my own personal blog.
Here are the results.
1. Warrior Forum Blog
2. Ezine Articles
3. My Personal Blog
So if nothing else, if you write articles in the make money online/Internet
marketing niche (yes, that is the one restriction for the blogs here) you're
probably better off putting them on your blog than submitting to EZA as
they will probably rank higher here.
The Warrior Forum carries a lot of weight in the SERPs so there's no reason
not to take advantage of it. Allen Says allows you to post articles to your
blog. So why not? I'm certainly going to start to on a more regular basis.
Write about something WORTH writing about and choose your keywords
appropriately and you just may find that it was worth the effort.
At least I have.
