My favorite way to get traffic to my sites and blogs has to be article marketing. It’s really a very simple concept and the best kind of a win-win situation.
The first step in getting your site noticed is to have a site that is designed in a way that is search engine friendly. That is called SEO (search engine optimized). This is mostly a web designing issue. We will assume that you are starting with an SEO optimized site.

The next step in getting the search engines to notice your site, is to understand them. The search engines’ whole purpose is to find quality content– that is what the Internet is all about. Information. And the more content (related to your site’s most important keywords) that you have, the more that search engines will like you. They like to see sites that grow with quality content at a steady rate. They also like to see a lot of quality links from other sites on the Internet going to your site.
Other people are constantly looking for good fresh material to put on their sites and blogs as well, which in-turn will help their websites get more traffic. That’s where you come in. You write an article with some real relevant information, filled with well-used search keywords, and of course you put a simple link to your website at the end of the article. Please don’t get too crazy or blatant with self-promotion, if you want people to use your article.
Now you submit your new article to some of the top article directories. I like to personally add my articles to a new directory every day. By doing this, you now have links all over the Internet leading to your site– links from the article directory, as well as links from everyone who publishes your article for free on their website, ezine or blog.
Article marketing is now considered one of the top methods of choice for web marketing. It’s one of the best ways to get top placement with the search engines and to drive traffic to your site. It has worked well for me!
It takes some time and effort to write and submit articles, but it’s free. You can also pay a submission service to send your articles out to more directories than you would have time to do yourself. So, start thinking “content” if you want the search engines to notice you.
