I just learned the usefulness of Google Base as a marketing tool. I found out I can advertise my article sort of like a press release and add a link to my article and a referral link to join HubPages.
Here is an example of what it looks like:
http://base.google.com/base/a/6545871/D … 0522417490
I think its a win win for us article writers. If I don't get any traffic generated from the advert, I at least get a backlink for my article.
http://base.google.com is the link. You will have to sign up for a "base" account, which only takes a couple minutes, before you publish an advert.
Hope this info helps everyone!
It's all new to me and I imagine to a lot of others also. Now I have known about online press releases to do SEO marketing for websites but I'm just learning that the same can be done with marketing articles.

It's a great resource. Posting an online press release will get at the very least a backlink to your article.
Not all of the PR sources listed charge a fee for an active hyperlink in the release, but I'm starting to register with each one and I'll post a list of the ones that allow free hyperlinks.
I would be interested in that - I have been through dozens of them and have not found a free one that allows that. So I tend to stick to using the few that are up-front about what they charge.
Thanks for the update, yet another place to get free backlinks.
Yes, I used google base long time back to market my blogger blogs and found it very useful, but it is driving little traffic now as I do not have time to update it with new things..
that's a good service actually i m using it for backlinks, not getting much traffic but, something is better than nothign
Thank you for this info. I post article updates on Twitter and occasionally Stumbleupon and Digg. This looks like another great tool.
Just be careful not to actually use the text of your hub, or any text you don't want reposted elsewhere, as the ToS give them the right to reproduce and modify any content you post.
@livewithrichard - you started this 5 weeks ago, have you seen a significant rise in traffic since you signed up? Do you now think it's worth it?

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

One again, I have fallen victim to the whims of Google. My top earning article is responsible for half of my total views over my HP career. It was the first to be HubPro edited. It was the first to be moved to a niche site. It's been getting very dependable traffic since June. Last Tuesday, the...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

Hey folks. I'm a long time member here and an SEO guy by trade. I love this platform and want to support it. I've been digging into Panda data, and I have a few suggestions. Let's work together and 'right the ship!' 1) Start a brand new account today. Fresh content is what Hubpages needs. Google...
