Article Resource Box

by Michael Forey 5 replies
I understand writing successful articles is something that is learned over time as you learn for articles that do good and from those that don't.

Can anyone offer me any tips for what type of information (other than a URL) I should put in an article resource box?

Thanks

    Hi Michael

    Here is something I have hanging up in front of me to remind me everytime I need to write a great bio box. Not sure who wrote it but for me its brilliant.

    The article content was about something to do with a job search site

    "Did you know it takes 9 months for the average person to find another job?
    Could you afford to wait that long?
    Find out how a simple piece of software can cut that time in HALF!"

    Every time I need to write a bio box I think of this example on how I can get them to click my link.

      I use anchor text such as, the following if I was selling dog training:

      Today I walking along the street and this <a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/page2">annoying dog</a> kept yapping at my heals, the owner certainly never took his dog to <a href="http://www.youdomain.com">dog training lessons</a>! However the dog training lessons I offer do give fantastic results.

      Using this example you can see I have used 2 keyphrases, annoying dog (linked this to a deep link in site) and main keyword dog training lessons (to home page) this way you can see how the keywords are linked to your site.

      Firstly, think of the top 5 keywords for your site, then start writing a bio about you, your likes and what you do in relation to your site.

        I agree with Internet Income; use keyword phrases as anchors. He also used something else to get attention - humor.

        I would also suggest that you don't put a conclusion in your article. Since people are trained to look for a conclusion, they will read your bio as the conclusion. This works especially well with EZA as the bio comes at the end of the article, like a continuation and not as a separate box.

    Your resource box should offer an incentive. The word "free" increases the CTR.

    Write a benefit driven resource box. What's in for the reader?

      Peggy makes a good point - if you can create your sig so that it (a) ties in closely with your article body and (b) suggests that the full story can be obtained by clicking on your sig link it will do wonders for your CTR.

      In a lot of my articles, my sig file leads to my opt in page where a targeted product is offered. Works pretty well.
