I just want to share what I've done last week with articles submitted to EzineArticles for SEO purpose.
Here's my story :
After researching for micro niche keyword, finally I decided to choose a keyword related with technology which has 14,000+ search per month (based on Keyword Tool External data) and less than 1,000 for exact terms listed on Google.com
So, I wrote an article 360 words, titled with keyword I choose.
And... right after my article approved by EzineArticles, my article listed on the first page of Google search result with that keyword.
Even though I'm not in the 1st place, but I'm still excited because there are more than 24,000,000 websites listed there.
Almost every 4-6 hours I keep my eyes on Google. just to make sure how long this method will survive. But... I think I made a mistake. (Maybe...)
Every time I check on Google I also clicked my link. I didn't click any other sites. But directly click my own link. You might say that 'why I'm doing it?'
Well, I was like 8 years old boy with new lollipop in my hand. I was so excited! no reason why I click my link so often...
And finally, yesterday Google kick my site out of his yard forever.... :-(
Even though, I search using 'keyword' site:ezinearticles.com I still can't find it. So, this is a great lesson for me and hopefully it won't happen to you.
Now, I have 5 articles with different keywords and I'm ready to play again with same method, but different attitude ;-)
Wish me luck...!
