Article Marketing Strategies

Article Marketing StrategiesLearn article marketing strategies to get leads for your business. Here we will cover the most effective ways to use article marketing for your business.  When we say articles we are also talking about blog posts.

But while article writing is definitely an effective marketing strategy, you must learn how to craft your article the right way. Also, you must learn how to get backlinks to your article. We will cover both topics for you here.

Article Marketing Strategies: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Backlinks.

SEO: Important steps to take when writing your article. 

Do you want your article to rank in the search engines – like Google, Yahoo or Bing? That’s really where the magic happens for online marketers. To get noticed on the major search engines, you must know exactly what they are looking for.

What the search engines are looking for in your article

While no one has completely cracked the Google code – we have a pretty good idea of what they are looking for: we call this “Search Engine Optimization” or SEO. Let’s cover a few basic tips on how to optimize your content for the search engines:

  • Pick a keyword to target – such as “lose weight now”
  • Include this keyword in the title of your article
  • Sprinkle this keyword throughout your article, but be careful not to use it too much or it may look too spammy.
  • Include an image in your article, and put the keyword in the title and alt tag of your image.
  • Include a video in your article that is relevant to the keyword you are targeting – this is optional.

That’s a basic SEO checklist for you to follow when writing your article. Of course, it can get more detailed than this, but this is a basic guideline to follow when learning article marketing strategies.

Backlinks: Your content must get the attention of the search engines.

What is a backlink anyway? For those of you that don’t know, a backlink is a link back to your article.

Another major influence on your search engine rankings is backlinks. If there’s a new article posted online, and people start sharing that article or blog post, that’s like a vote for that article. It makes that article look popular, and the search engines want to present the most relevant, popular content.

Where can the backlinks come from?

Backlinks can come from social media sites (such as Twitter, Facebook or Youtube), from other people’s blogs, or from article directories. Here’s one way to do this – you can join Facebook groups that allow you to post your value based content on their wall. After joining, you can comment on other people’s content, as well as post your own content.

But when you post your link, make sure that you are linking to content that is informational, with a call to action at the end, because you don’t want to be one of those people who constantly spam their product or service upfront on the group walls – or anywhere on Facebook for that matter!

An even better, more effective way to get backlinks to your blog is to write several unique articles and post them at other locations on the internet. For example, on article directories like Ezine articles, HubPages and Squidoo. And when you post an article in article directories, make sure to post unique content for each article site, and then include a link back to the main piece of content you want to rank. And there you go – you have backlinks!

Scale up your article marketing strategies to stand out against your competition

So yes, you can get backlinks yourself by posting each article to the article directories manually, but to really compete it’s best to scale up your efforts. And instead of manually posting unique content to hundreds of article directories, many marketers are turning to article spinning software. Which lets you upload an article, and then it rewrites the content of that article and submits unique content to hundreds of sites at the push of a button.

Rocket on Two Wheels

by David and Tara on June 26, 2013

MeJumpingDo you have a passion that you absolutely love to do? I have to tell ya, dirt biking has to be one of the funnest hobbies that I have ever done. Although I don’t own a dirt bike any longer, I have plans on buying a new one in the near future.

I used to own a Yamaha YZ250. It was a two stroke, and now I’m going to upgrade to a 4 stroke.

I can remember the first time I got on it. I had no clue what I was doing. The biggest mistake you can ever make is sitting far back on the seat and twisting the throttle. It took me two times and two busted knees to finally get that you have to sit up front close to the gas tank when you twist the throttle hard.

I never imagined that a dirt bike could go so fast.  But they do get up around 65 miles per hour. The first time I ever pinned 5th gear, I could literally feel my goggles pressing into my face and the wind pushing against my body. It felt like I was on the edge of disaster. One false move and I would have been cartwheeling on the ground.

I like other activities like snowboarding and skateboarding, but nothing comes even close to dirt bikes. I’m off the bike now for fear of crashing again. The last crash was pretty bad. I tore up my right foot pretty bad and had to get surgery. So in the future, I won’t be riding too much motocross. I’ll keep it on the trails in mountains.

Riding in the mountains feels like riding a horse but much faster with more control. It’s sort of like an iron horse if you know what I mean.

Going up and down hills and around corners with trees passing by is the craziest feeling. It’s sort of like an obstacle course. There is not much room for error. If you move too far to the left or right, you are running into a tree—which I have done once.

Learning how to work the throttle on steep hill takes patience and precision. If you stall out, you have to have one hand on the clutch and one hand on the front brake while kicking the start. You have twist the throttle while still holding on the front brake to prevent rolling backwards. Talk about coordination!

But once you get it, it’s the funnest thing ever. It seems that every frustrating thought you were having, every problem in your life, has been forgotten and replaced with thrill.

It’s amazing to see the sights too. You can cover so much ground in a short amount of time.

The longest I’ve ever ridden was 20 miles or so. And the views were amazing. There is something that draws me to the smell of exhaust coming out of the tail pipe and the adrenaline rush that flows constantly.

My days on dirt bikes now equates to motocross races on TV. That’s all I do in the meantime. Motorsports have become part of who I am. I love watching other races too such as 4 wheelers.

I would like to know what sports you like to participate in. Feel free to comment below.

Cheers,

David
