Article marketing is still one of the best ways to to promote your web site or business. A good article can generate many hundreds or even thousands of links to your web site and these links are one way inbound links that currently are ranked by the search engines as one of the important factors the search engines use in their 'shock horror?algorithms. The geeks spend hours and days planning strategies and software to optimise web sites so they are search engine friendly.
Well we aren't all computer geeks. So for us mere mortals we have to use the tools that we can manage.
And we all can write an article. If you don't know where to start and don't think you can put the right words on paper, go find an article that reflects your ideas and re-write the article in your own language. This way you cover all the important points but you will create an article that is unique to you. And this counts out there on the net??unique content.
Start with a short article and copy and paste it into your word processor. Split it up into paragraphs and under each paragraph write your own version in your own style?worts and all.
Do this for each paragraph and at the end delete all the paragraphs that you are copying and ?Hey presto? you have created your own unique article.
And guess what?..you will find other people are interested to read your interpretation of the information. It might be more casual, or at least the language is less formal but this will appeal to many people. You will be surprised.
Many of the articles floating around the web today are generated by software designed specifically for articles and they all appear to be done to a formula (CANNED) and in my opinion are rather boring and stilted.
Don't be afraid to express yourself as though you are telling a mate a story or your version of some software or topic or whatever.
Do start with a topic that you are familiar with because you will then be able to add small personal details on the topic. Also try to include an article that relates to the keywords on your website?.but more on that in my next article.Much more interesting than canned articles.
It is the small personal details that will make your article standout in the crowd.
That's all for now?. Good luck with your first article and don't forget to publish your article... How to do this? Just go to Google and type the following into the search bar ?where to publish articles? and you will find hundreds of article publishing sites and lots of helpful hints.
Create... Enjoy... And reap the benefits!
