    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: … 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.  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.

          Google Base has been available under "Webmasters Tools" in Adsense for a long time. Press Release is an Old Tactics to promote website or blog.

    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.

        Hey Mark, have you tried the Google Base?  It's free and you can place hyperlinks in it.  I posted a link to one that I published on Base.  It's in the first post above.

    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..

    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?
