One of the best and easiest ways to get traffic to your website is with article marketing. And who doesn’t want traffic right? Without it, your website will fail! It doesn’t matter how good of a site you have if no one sees it. Creating 400 – 600 word articles and submitting them to article submission sites can really bring a lot of traffic to your website – IF you do it right!
And there is no need to be intimidated by article marketing. I have heard it hundreds of times before… “I can’t do article marketing because I can’t write”. This is pure nonsense! If you have written an email or a letter to a friend or family member before, you can write an article. All you need to do is write exactly the way you would talk when trying to teach a friend or family member something. Simple as that. Don’t over think it! shot blasting machine
But that is not what I want focus on today. What I want to teach you today is how to create an article that will easily drive traffic to your site. Here are 3 tips for you to dive into:
You need to find keywords to target in your articles that are being used by people to find specific information in your niche. Keywords that have a good combination of high monthly searches and low amount of competing pages. This combination will give you the best shot at ranking on the first page of Google for that specific keyword phrase.
Optimize Your Article
Once you have found a keyword phrase that is suitable, you will need to include it in specific areas of your article. You need to include your keyword phrase in the title of your article, 2 or 3 times in the body of your article, in the tags of your article and in your bio box. And hyperlink your keyword phrase in your bio box for best results.
Create a Good Bio Box
Everyone knows that the bio box area is important because it includes the link that will send traffic to your website. But what people often do wrong in this area is they put a bunch of information about themselves here. That is a big mistake and a waste of space. What needs to go in your bio box is the main benefit of your website. If you are trying to build a list and you are sending your article to a squeeze page, include the main benefit of the freebie you are giving away if they sign up to your list. Make people feel like they need to check out your offer!
These 3 tips are very important to get the best results when doing article marketing. If you take action on these tips and start punching out articles on a regular basis, you will build up a large amount of high PR back links pointing to your website and you will start to see an influx of traffic to your website in no time.
