Hi, just want to get some opinions please about Ezine. I read somewhere that I should submit articles to Ezine and my traffic and adsense earnings might increase. I regularly write Ezine articles for a client but it backlinks to his online store, so there is really sense for him to keep an active presence on ezine (through me). Do you think this is advisable for me, too? When I am not really selling anything, but rather relying on clicks? While on that, how long should my articles on Ezine be? Thank you for answering these questions.
From what ive experienced it can be very frustrating to get an article accepted by ezine but when you do it does pay off as it has a huge amount of google trust, ezine articles can rank in the first page for keywords sometimes,
yea, ezine articles is a great marketing strategy that I advise using. I talked to a person the other day that receives around 70k clicks on his e-zine links in the resource box a year. BUT, better than the clicks you get quality backlinks. I think most people do it more for the backlinks than clicks.
Ok... where then should the backlinks point to? To one of my hubs? So if I have 10 hubs I should also have 10 ezine articles? Thanks.
To summarize the info Darkside has linked to:
You can generally place 2 links in the resource box, so assuming you have vaguely related hub topics you can have one ezine article for every 2 hubs.
That is if you are only after 1 back link to each hub.
Mommyfreelancer, I also did writing Ezine articles for a client. These articles were very important and useful for him (I think that it really brought him huge traffic). Frankly speaking I didn't like this service because of their revision of each article (they promise to look through your article during 7 days, but sometimes they looked through my articles for more than 10 days, it was annoying).
Now I don't use it for getting traffic on my hubs, but I think over this possibility (even though I don't like Ezine), probably it will really help.
I think that depends on the type of membership your client has. Mine is usually posted within 2 working days.
I'm getting the feeling that it takes more effort in using ezine for traffic, effort I can use instead in producing more hubs.
Hmm...what to do, what to do?
Why don't you try it and see?
I have similar worries. Should I be writing more content, doing more research, generating more links or writing ezine articles?
Simple fact is - if nobody visits your hubs they are wasted.
Mattapears, I'm flattered. This is your first ever post in the 2 years you have been here...
I have no problems getting accepted by ezine. I produce dozens of ezine articles for a client weekly (in fact I just posted them an hour ago).
The thing is, I will probably need a good number of articles posted on it to get substantial traffic to my hubs, right? I'm just thinking if that same time can be better directed to making hubs.
I've written ezine articles to promote my websites, but I've never done it for my Hubs.
If I had a Capstone series (i.e a large number of Hubs on one topic, with a Capstone Hub summarising and linking to them all), I would certainly write some ezine articles which would link to the Capstone Hub.
However as I write on such a variety of subjects, it doesn't seem worth the effort to write ezine articles to promote one or two Hubs. I'd rather just write another Hub!
One reason for using Ezines, especially on sites that don't rank well yet, is that you can effectively use those articles to rank and then direct traffic to your site.
My experience is that Hubpages tends to outrank Ezines for many terms, so there's less of an advantage, so Ezines articles by themselves may not be worth it for the traffic (although I will point out that I think it's less work to write an article for Ezines than Hubpages, but that's because I usually try to find some related items to list from Amazon, and I usually try to link related articles together, so overall a Hub is more work.)
But, if you are running your Google Analytics, and you find a hub getting a lot of traffic for a specific keyword, and after checking the SERPS (search rankings) you find it on page one but not number one, then it's probably worth it to write a couple of articles pointing back to your hub with that keyword as anchor text to push the Hub up in the SERPS since the difference of a couple of postions in the SERPS can make a big difference in the traffic.
If it is a high traffic ezine then by all means, write a article and provide a link back to your HP site in the resource box. go for it.
Mommyfreelancer, just wondering what you decided to do? I'm having a little experiement with writing a short ezine article for each of my hubs. Especially for the ones that aren't getting as much traffic as I would like.
I'll let you know how it goes if you want?
I had an article that was recieving minimal traffic. I tried tweaking the title and adding content, but I still saw no improvement. Since I had heard about using Ezine for backlinks and traffic, I wrote a related article to hub for Ezine. I published it the beginning of June, and it has only recieved 64 page views. Two people clicked on my link to the Hubpage article. I also submitted another one for a different hub, and it went live today so I don't know how that it will pan out.
In light of this, this is what I think. Rather than putting effort into writing articles to other sites for backlinks and traffic, concentrate more on your hubpages. Secondly, even before writing quality hubs, learn all you can about keywords. I think keyword choices is one of the most important factors in getting traffic to your hubs.

Just curious if anyone is using article directories like ezine, xomba and buzzle to drive traffic to your hubs. From what I understand about pageranks, if I write an article for ezine, even though ezine has a high...

this is just my personal opinion on what everyone should do for each of their hubs directly after writing them or at any point in time. Submit them to 3-4 of your favorite social bookmarking websites (takes 2-5 minutes)...
