One of the most frequently asked questions from website owners is how to generate traffic to their site. There are literally hundreds of marketing methods he could use, but the one I am going to explain today is probably one of the most over-looked, under-estimated, and yet extremely effective methods to increase traffic. It is, of course, Article Marketing.
In this post, I am going to take a brief look at some of the benefits that Article Marketing can bring to the table.
Firstly, it will obviously increase the amount of visitors coming to your website each day. If you write a good article, and it gets accepted into an article database that receives millions of views per month, what do you think are going to happen to the number of visits? Of course, it will rocket. The important thing to remember is that when you are writing the article, try and add some real value to the reader, and then they are a lot more likely to click through to your website.
Not only will Article Marketing increase the amount of visitors you get each day directly, it also does this indirectly. Basically, search engines rank websites on a number of levels; Keywords, number of pages, number of links, and lots more. Article Marketing, because you have a ‘resource box’ at the bottom of your article, where you put your website’s URL, means that you will have increasing amounts of links coming into your page, which in turn, will increase your search engine ranking.
This element of Article Marketing will not increase your search engine rankings, but it will most certainly increase your ‘rankings’ with readers across the web. If someone likes your writing, they send a link to their friend, who reads it, receives value from it, clicks on your link to look for more, and then passes the link onto another friend. It is a form of referral that you can unlock by positioning yourself as an expert in your field.
Wanna Go Viral?
If you write a sublime, killer article that adds value to nearly everyone that reads it, your link may just go viral! Let me explain from the beginning; every Article Database gives readers the chance to re-publish the article on their own website, as long as they include the resource box, with info about you and your URL. This was the main reason that Article Databases started up. When you write an amazing article, people from all over the web will re-publish it on their site, and then you have hundreds of high-quality links to your website. Simple!
