Writing Tips-Article Secrets That Will Get You 75% More Visitors

Updated on October 10, 2009

I'm not supposed to tell you this, but did you know that the absolute number 1 method of driving targeted long term traffic to your website or blog is article marketing.Yeah! I know, your not a writer but neither am I in the traditional sense. In this article I will show you how to get the most from your content and what to do if you can't write your articles for yourself.

1) How Do You write An Article?

Lets get this question answered straight away.It is very simple to produce a half decent article, all you have to remember is that virtually everything that you need to know about anything has already been written.Your job is simply to find this information and re-write it in your own words.

2) Where Do You Find The Information?

You can find this information from a variety of places ranging from newspapers magazines ,books, and even from your local library, but by far and away your best source of information will be the Internet. If you really can't be bothered to write your own articles, and your time is more important than money then you can pay for Private Label Rights (PLR) articles which can cost (depending on where you purchase them from) on average a few cents per article.

3)Why Should You Write Articles?

By writing and submitting your articles to article directories and article announcement lists, you will be achieving a number of things such as

  • Establishing yourself as an expert
  • Get a one way link back to your website or blog
  • Get better placement in the Google SERP results


All of what I've shown you so far will work for writing a basic bog standard article, but if you want to take your article writing up a notch and improve your results by as much as 75% then you need to pay special attention to what I'm gonna tell you now.

4) Write Good Headlines

Your article will live or die by the quality of its headline. Most article writers ignore this crucially important point which is why you can find all of their articles languishing in Google's Cyberspace wilderness.

It has been often said that you should always write for people and not search engines and I whole heartedly agree, but not when it comes to writing my
headlines.

Google reads the title of your article first and then ranks it accordingly so please don't muck this part up otherwise you will regret it.

5) Your Bio Box

"Not sure what this is?" well it's the part where you convince the person reading your article to visit your website or blog and its location is usually at the bottom of the article directory page which you have submitted to.

I read a fair amount of articles and a common mistake that I often see is a writer putting far to many outbound links in the body of their articles. "HELLO" the purpose of writing your article in the first place is to get it seen and read by as many eyeballs as possible with minimum distractions

Your bio box also gives you a chance to place a link back to your main website using your domain URL address. It is very important that you take full advantage of this by making sure that you have your anchor text description link in place as well.

Applying points 4 and 5 will significantly improve the chances of your articles being picked up by other article directories and webmasters looking for new content.

You will get a steady growth of targeted traffic which will only increase as you write and submit more articles. Just remember that for all of this to happen your article body text must match the promise of your headlines.
