Hello, everyone. Is article marketing really important? I feel submitting a revised article to directories like Ezinearticles would add more work. Is it really worth the time? Thank you so much.
You don't need it, but it can help. A lot.
I had one web page that fell off google when a competing web page from the same domain was created. It was my main moneymaker, so I was a little worried. I created several articles to promote that book, and it went from being #4 on Google before it dropped, to being #1 on Google for the keyword for more than a month now.
I write articles for pages that I really think can do better and make me more money if they ranked higher. It's not worth the time for every page. In some cases, you're better off making more content and linking it to the first page.
may not be necessary if you use strong keywords and your competition is low and the search is high, that there is a beautiful combination for money maker.
articles = backlinks, backlinks and more backlinks = traffic to hubs,.
If for this reason only, then yes I would say that it would be worth 20 -30% of your time and the rest spent creating new content. Time will always increase traffic, articles just speed up the process a bit.
Hope this helps.
It depends how competitive your keyphrases are. In medium to low competition areas it may be unneccesary.
I'd recommend watching the hubpages learning videos from the first hubcamp. They will show you how to find low competition phrases and assess publisher competition.
There are two sets of benefits to article marketing,
First, there are the SEO benefits that can happen, that have been described.
Secondly, there is syndication. I know a lot of people on hubpages don't like syndication, but it can be a very useful way to get traffic on subjects where people don't search for them, or where you have no chance of getting in the top page of google.
Basically, with syndication, you write good articles, and other web sites and newsletters in your niche publish them, with a link to your article.
If it gets published in a really good newsletter or website in your niche, you can get a lot of traffic for years after you write the article.
Syndication has not really been a benefit for a long time. The sites that take the content are generally too low quality, and the backlinks are worth next to nothing, since the duplicate content is often even left unranked. It is at the point now that sites like e-zine are going to be in real trouble because Google is cracking down on the sites it syndicates to.
Demand Media is one of teh few companies that still has some vestiges of authorative syndication left, and even that company is suffering.
Article writing is well worth the effort, and if you submit to high quality sites you will get high quality backlinks.
Here is the thing. Making money online is NOT easy, you have to put work in to it. To put it simply, you need to compete. If you want succeed you really need to put in the effort to beat the rest.
I didn't say it was easy.
However, the benefits of syndication do still exist, if you do it right. Although I do post to ezinearticles, and get a few benefits, the benefits are not much better than posting here, or your own sites / blogs and doing interlinking.
But, article marketing is bigger than a particular site, Contacting other sites, finding out if there are subjects they want can be very useful.
Article marketing is a fantastic way to get noticed as an expert and to get targeted traffic. The key here is to understand who your target market is, and how to attract them. Article marketing is one of the easiest ways to get massive quality backlinks for SEO rankings.
