How do article directories help increase traffic?

    How do article directories help increase traffic?

    How does putting your articles on article directories help and do you just copy your hubs directly onto them?

    I've actally have never tried them. I've wanted to, but never actually gotten the hang of them. I dont think you can just copy and paste your hubs on them. Every article directory has to contain original content. Writers that have the patience to write article after article, have been known to make great money from them, but you have to know how to write the articles..

    When you submit your unique article to a directory, it is linked back to your website with themed content, and then website owners also pick up your article for their site content; these are all do follow links back to your site with relevant content.

    When web users find those articles and like what the see, they can then click through to your site. Therefore the web user has found "the object of their desire" .
    This themed organic traffic, enough said. Blessings:smile

    Thanks- so do I put completely new articles on the directories not my existing hubs? Also how is it linked back to my website?

    Usually they'll drive traffic to you by adding another source people can search for your hubs in. If you use the same keywords on hubpages as you do in the article directory then you'll have another source of viewers (members of said article directory).

    No you can't just copy and paste your hub over, however you CAN take the first few text capsules of the hub, spin them a bit (use a thesaurus and reword every few words of the article), and then submit them to an article directory. Just include a link back to your hub so that you get the extra traffic.

    Yes, article sites can help but no, you can't just post your Hub or duplicate articles of any kind.   The idea of posting the same article across multiple sites is an outdated way of gaining backlinks, it doesn't work these days. 

    You need backlinks to raise your profile in Google's eyes. A link inside an article has far more value than a link on a directory or links page.  A good way to do it is to write articles on various revenue-sharing sites (Wizzley, Xobba, PubWages, ThisisFreelance, Infobarrel, Excerptz) - that way you get the backlink but you also get revenue from the linking articles as well.  But they all need to be unique articles.
