Article writing is one of the best ways of promoting your site and providing you with back links which will result in your page rank being enhanced and therefore hopefully bringing more visitors to your site.
You want to write an article but you are unsure of what you need to do and what subject you want to write about. One of the best things you could write about is a subject that you have extensive knowledge of say a hobby or pastime or even a field of work that you have expert knowledge of and preferably a subject that is involved around the site you are promoting.
If you feel unsure of how you should set out your article and the number of words that you want to include in it then I would suggest that you have a look at other article sites that are available such as Freezine Articles, Isnare and Ezine Articles as well as Give-me-articles.
When writing your article at all times remember to include your website url at the bottom of it so that when it is published by the article site you are getting the back link which will help to increase your page rank. A site that I submitted an article for about 9 months ago are now having back links to sites with a PR of 5 or above.
Remember that an article which has been concisely put to together and is easy to read is likely to get more attention than one that rambles on. Also another benefit of producing an article is that sometimes another website owner will request the use of one of your articles and by allowing them to publish it on their site you are getting another back link to yours. Any of your articles that are published by other site owners must include your author and site details.
