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?

They simply put a pretty picture up and then read your article verbatim out loud.Google then ranks the YouTube link above your article link.There's no way to fight this. I give up. I'm done.

Lately, I've been checking the feed. I've flagged a couple of articles related to spamming one's own business. After looking more closely, I've also noticed published articles (not even articles) that most would consider extremely sub-standard. I'll be the first to admit that I'm...

I have finally published a hub that has been deemed unfeatured. I can only direct my attention to a table I inserted which was long when viewed on the mobile platform. Grammar is checked, titles tweaked, content is solid as its in the same vein as my other articles. Do you think this could be it?...

I have a question that I hope someone from HP will answer. I have an article that has been up for about 5 years. It has been edited by HP Pro. Drives LOTS of traffic to Paired Life (as in one of your biggest articles). Who was the moderator who thought it was a good idea to turn off my advertising?...

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...

Something strange is going on. I have a hub that's been doing really well for years. It was hub-pro edited a couple of months ago and traffic increased by a couple hundred a day. Over the last week or so it's hovered around 750 per day. Overall it has almost half a million views.Today, views are...
