Ok so Ive been reading that submitting to Ezine Articles and all that isn't good anymore. So I want to know what is the best way to get people to my site? Should I write and submit articles anyways just to have a few backlinks? I have one article with 40 views and 3 clicks. Doesn't seem that great.

Doesn't matter if its free or a paid way to get traffic. I want all ideas. I have articles at the ready but im not submitting them right now. So maybe I should just make a site and use them as content? All your help is appreciated.

    One article submission is not enough. If you get hundreds or even thousands of visitors, you need to scale it up to hundreds of articles for submission to EA and also other article directories which have high traffic. But make sure that each article must be different for many article directories. Of course, this process is very time consuming.

    Consider guest blogging on high traffic blogs. This method is usually not free but can bring targeted traffic for monetizing.

      Well you actually answered your own question. One article got forty views? Now multiply by a hundred, and voila.

      Remember that an article doesn't have to be a enormous and word filled to get views and actually be interesting. Depends on your niche and how good of a writer you are of course.

      Also, blog commenting, forum posting and such is an amazing way to get both backlinks and establish a connection with consumers (Depending on what you're marketing of course). So search for some blogs and forums in your niche and get posting!

      Also, good luck!

    Your success with EzineArticles or article submissions may have to do with the keyword choice or topic. Some believe you should submit lots of articles to article directories. I did that with an older site and got lots of traffic, but that fizzled out after a two to three year run. Others believe you should submit a few optimized articles on EA and promote the heck out of them with backlinks. Expand into Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, etc., as alternative free sources of potential viral traffic.

    Create some infographics, do a bit of guest blogging, comment on blogs, develop a presence on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and other social sites. Help people out on forums in your niche and stealthily add your website link to your signature.

    Article marketing is not for everyone. One of the best things you can do is to research traffic methods and have an army of outsourced specialists. You get paid to be creative. You pay yourself to come up with new ideas. No single day is boring.

  • I think you should go for a combination of article submissions, guest posting and forum entries. And you also need volume - one post or one article is never enough.

    It depeds for what purpose you are using articles. Either to create backlinks or to get traffic from them.

    Trafficwise you need to get tons of those articles written spread over various sources. You might want to use a high quality article spinner such as 'The best spinner' (I used to use it). Invest in few softwares to make your work easier and save time.

    Look for other sources of traffic. Go to facebook, communicate with people, build a fanpage, build following, get leads.
