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?

Googled a portion of my article which I suspect has been copied numerous times. The top result today is this. Going to the site, there's nothing there other than pizzas. Why?

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

Just curious, but does anyone have experience with this? How'd you do it? Did you tell Google the article moved somehow or do anything else fancy? Or did you just copy, paste, delete from HubPages, and wait for Google to catch up?Im guessing there might be some duplicate content penalties from...
