Thousands of Internet marketers are taking advantage of article writing as a free way to drive traffic to their websites and to the merchant websites they are affiliated with. Article writing is one of the best techniques to use in order to obtain free search listings within Google, Yahoo and other search engines.

This is how the process flows. You write an article about a topic or subject that you are either interested in or are interested in getting listed under, submit it to an article website (usually free), and then wait for it to get listed. By submitting the article to these sites you are adopting their search engine ranking, meaning that you can get listed on the first page of the results in a matter of days. This is something that could take months if you tried to optimize a website for search engines. Article marketing is 100% free and is something that anyone could (and should be doing)!

Free traffic = Free advertising = No overhead

So how does article marketing actually work? Well, generally it takes months or even years to get a site naturally listed in the main search engines like Google, Yahoo, or MSN. This is usually because a new website is not very "Popular". Popular means different things for Google, Yahoo, and MSN, and they all have different search ranking algorithms, but they all have a similar ranking model. If you write an article and submit it to a "Popular" website such as "ezinearticles.com", your article will live on this domain and inherit the popularity of that entire site. This will give your article a head start by being listed in the top rank site, thus getting spidered frequently by the search engines.

Search Engine Optimization is something that marketers have been perfecting for years, but it can take a VERY long time to get your own website displayed at all under the keywords that you want. With article marketing, you leverage the power of these large sites (ezinearticles.com, squidoo.com, usfreeads.com, etc.) to get top natural listings for your articles in a fraction of the time.

We're going to tell you exactly how to find the right keywords to use in article marketing, how to obtain a top listing in the search engines under these keywords, and how you can create profitable article marketing campaigns.

Geez Louiz Carson, valuable stuff. I like the way you explain things. What took me so long to discover this training? I have checked out the keyword tool before but the training on the right side of the page never caught my eye. I'm used to assuming that everything over on the right is just a bunch of ads. If it wasn't for a member Bill67 who blogged about this training, I would have never known. It's actually the first training I've come across by you. I like it, thanks Carson

EXCELLENT TRAINING RIGHT HERE JUST IN THIS SESSION ALONE!!!!!! Learned something that I haven't learned ANYWHERE else. To search a KW and see if the organic listings that pop up for that KW have high page ranks. If not, take that KW and run with it! Great advice man!

Should we just be submitting articles to one site or should we be submitting them to multiple sites? If multiple sites, could it be the same article or do we need to write new articles for each site?
Reply
It see it was a while ago since you asked the question, but I will answer it anyway :)

Earlier it was easy to get away with just change a few words in the article/or just use a spinner :) But I hvae done that in the past, and it did not get me anywhere :(

So I think the way to go is to write totally unique content on each website you publish on :) The way you can see its unique is to get yourself an Copyscape.c0m account and let it scan the web for same sentences in your article (some might also call it plagiarism)

I hope that answered your question :)

OK I have been told to find keywords with less than 500 and now I see less than 5000. I would like to get a clear answer on this point, do I need to be looking for words with less than 500 or less than 5000 results? I am also wondering if the WA keyword tool takes into account the optimization of the competitions websites when it is giving results because I notice that when I use the WA tool the results are always way different than when I place it in Google but then when I narrow down my competition by seeing who has the keyword in their title and URL the results come much closer. I am sure I'm not the only one being confused by this. Thanks, Ty Johnson

I thought you needed a web site to do Article Marketing. I do not see any mention of this and how or where do I go to get or make a website? I know what a website is, but what is the purpose of the site? Do I also need a new website for each article I want to submit? I am a newbie, have written many articles, but do not know what to do with them. Also, as an affiliate, how do I monetize may articles? Where can I look to get these answers? Many thanks for prompt answers.

Can you direct me to where you walk through the process of submitting articles. I have written an article which I have posted to my Wordpress site. I get the feeling I should have submitted the article first before putting it on the sit. If that is right then I can back track and remove it from the site.

In submitting the article to the directory I am unsure as to whether I should have included a link to my wordpress site.


As you might guess I am a bit confused. Also can I get notification of a response to this or should I enter it on the forum?

Hi Carson,
I'm facing one problem as I am going through the course material. I began reading article marketing lesson created by Kyle, A link there mid way brought me to your page. From here I will be taken to the next page, even as I didn't get the chance to read the original article. So I guess the right strategy ought to be read the first article without clicling the links. Get back to the artile once again, begin reading it click the first link, read this article without going to the next page, Get back, click on the second link if any and so on.Am I right? If so then it gets muddle headed. So, please do suggest. Thanks

@metzfomnc,

Hello and welcome to WA! I am new also and what I do is right click on the link that I want to open, then click on open in a new window. This way you can read the link and still have your place in the tutorial. Hope this helps.

Really great write up Carson!

It explains it all step by step with great links. Need to start practice writing articles, to get in the swing. Thank you!

Only complaint - I wish links opened in new windows or backspace took you to where you left off.

Basically, you write up your article and make the content look good....If you were writing about the Sony Bravia 32v4000 and was an amazon affiliate, you would add amazon links(with your affiliate links) to your article page. Whenever a visitor clicks on your amazon affiliate links and buys the sony bravia 32v4000 you would get a commision from amazon.

Hope this helps.

OK, I understand writing Articles but what I don't understand is EXACTLY how do I make money at article writing? Do I just put up the article and the commercial adds the Article owners put on the Article pay me money when someone clicks through? Or, do I have to place those adds myself and negotiate a rate from those advertisers? Total Newbie! Please respond if you wish to my email at MyPuppymutts@gmail.com thanks!

Is there a way to follow the links and then get back to where I was in the article without having to go back to page one of the article? I'm not inclined to click on links if I can't get back to where I was in the article. Thanks for help with this.

Love the article. However, I wish the links opened up in a new window because each time I open the link and use the arrow back to get to the page I was reading, it takes me to the first page of the article....
Nonetheless....the subject is intriguing and I will keep on reading...This is good stuff!!

When submitting to articles directories, do I have to use unique article for each directory or can I submit same article to all directories?

I hate writing and don't spell so good. I am good at computer and don't have a lot of money to pay for PPC marketing. Since I am really just starting to try and build an online business and a income to retire on then I am starting this program to see if its really going to be a help to me and others as I start to promote for it.

Hi cjaf, set a goal to complete 1 article a week then focus on that goal. Stick to a regular time to do your research, draft writing, and editing then set a firm completion date - i.e. has to be done and posted by Friday at 2pm. After a few weeks it will start to become a habit.

I like that the content is razor sharp and stays on topic. I also like printing out the page(s) so I can re-read later on during my work day at my desk. So far I've settled on copy and paste into Word ( for the legibility of 12pt) Am I missing an easier way to do this? Didn't seem to see a print resource on the webpage. Love the training though - especially after many years of trash and hype and thousands of HEC (hard earned cash) down the drain.
