Internet User Asks:

I hear a lot of Warriors discuss how they are reaching out to thousands of readers through article syndication. The technique seems pretty legit but i still had some doubts.

1) Sites like Ezine Articles have thousands of articles posted everyday. How does one get publishers to post our article on their site/blog?

2) Wouldn’t you rather let search engine visitors come to your site instead of being directed to EZA?

First of all your content does matter a great deal! 2nd do not mass submit to thousands of directories, bad idea!

All your content you want posted on your own site first and foremost. Do not give away your unique and fresh content to anybody. It is yours why not use it, post it on your own site / blog first.

After it is on your site / blog then you want to do some bookmarks, social posting, and pings to get that content seen by people and search engines. Do not syndicate just yet, wait a few days and make sure your content is indexed.

Then you want to go to social media sites such as livejournal and multiply (there are hundreds of these sites) and you want to post what I call half articles. The half article should include at least 1 link in the body and and a read more link leading back to the original on your site.

DO NOT CREATE HUNDREDS OF ACCOUNTS FOR THIS! Only create as many accounts as you can “manually” handle. Which means you should only create 5 – 10 social media accounts on multiply type sites. You want to handle these sites manually and participate in the sites. Every time you post on your site / blog this is the first place you post your half articles.

Once that is done run a few (not many) bookmarks on the social media accounts you created. You do not want to go over-board on bookmarking these sites as you want to build your site and not theirs.

Next on your list you want to make sure you create hubpages and/or squidoo lenses. Create an entire page based around 3 – 4 of your articles. DO NOT ADD ANY SALES PITCHES! Add informative content and engages users and attracts them to your blog / site. squidoo you can feed your rss feed into your lenses that you create. Again a few few bookmarks will not hurt here.

Now you want to locate some top bloggers that are “related” and you want to build a relationship with them. Many will disagree here and think you should just email people, which does work but I personally think it is more beneficial to build a relationship first.

Once you build a relationship with these top bloggers they will have no problem publishing your content any time you want. I know people that I can post on their blogs any time, all I need to do is send a email and say “hey let me post on your blog” and they allow me no questions asked.

This is because I built a relationship with them and they know I am not going to post junk garbage. Building a relationship with 5 or more people in your niche that have related products and services will go way further than any content junk filled article directory that has ads all over your articles!

This is just for starters as there is more to syndication but this should get you up and running. I personally syndicate on 300+ ad free websites.

First let’s get to the truth that there is no penalty for duplicate content (amazing how this myth still lives on) as many so called experts would claim. Duplicate content has been proven many times over in the marketing arena to be false as explained by marketers. There is no penalty, Google does have a sup index they add dups in.

It has been shown that you can take over 3 – 4 positions on page 1 of Google using the same exact article. Any dynamic built site ( wordpress, joomla for examples) all have dup content because they have Raw Url’s and SEO url’s, both of which Google does index.

Publishers ask for unique content because they want exclusive content because it helps build them as the authority + a few other reasons.

I personally would never give away my content to be exclusive unless I was seriously getting something out of it. There are many sites that you can syndicate to that are ad free and do not require “exclusive rights”.

I have always suggested my readers and members that they should post their own content to their own website / blog first. It is your content after all so why should you not be using it for your own site first and foremost.

It never ends to amaze me about the author recourse box and people complaining about they do not see the clicks that they want. There are several factors involved here why you do not have those higher clicks on your resource box.

First I will cover the fact as I have many times, you must remember those article directories that many submit to have ads all over the place, this distracts your possible visitor/customer that could be going to your website. Some seem to think that the percentage of distracted people is not that high but they are dead wrong.

An article placed on an adsense farm vs being posted on an ad free article directory — The percentages could range from a low 20% to a high 60% that do not click on your link because they see something else shiny and want to know what it is.

This is “normal” human behavior because as humans we do have low attention span, this is not something made up but it is a fact. Some have longer attention spans than others but fact is we all have a limit on that attention. When we see something new and shiny we run towards it and forget about what we was doing.

This is one major reason why your clicks will be less, think about where you are sharing your content. An ad free article directory / web 2.0 site will always out perform a site that is nothing more than an adsense farm.

But — there is another major reason why your clicks are low and this may even be more important than the ads vs no ads reason above. I have seen many articles fall under the below 2 categories because people just are not trained properly enough to know how to effectively create a resource box.

#1 Some will post an article on internet marketing techniques but yet when it comes to their resource box they will try to push some email marketing or list building junk.

#2 Some will post an article about website traffic generation and then in the resource section they will post something like “I have been an affiliate marketer for X years, visit my site”. Honestly nobody cares how long you been online or how long you have been a marketer.

One of the best and yet overlooked ways to grow your business is by contributing to an article marketing forum. You should only submit content to a forum with quality information and advice on article marketing as you want to be seen to be mingling in the right circles. The knock on effect of this is that you will also pick up some new marketing tactics along the way.

You must be aware that you will run into tons of different forums that are full of nothing but garbage information that people have thrown together from an old ebook in the hope they can get you to buy a product from them, or get you to sign up to their list. You will find many a self-proclaimed guru trying to sell you the next big thing!

You do need to be very careful about the information you pick up on these sub-standard forums as putting old and rehashed information into practice for your business could see you fail very badly. Technology marketing is ever evolving, and there are much more reliable forums rising to the top. If you know what to look for finding the best article marketing forum can be easier than you might think.

Article marketing is not what it used to be and many should have seen this coming for years. It seems though that many still want to follow these so called expert article marketers. Let’s look at some facts here that these experts can not deny and after reading these facts maybe some will finally understand what true article marketing really is.

Google had a panda update and we all know this, it was not some well hidden secret. With this update they seriously slapped all the so-called top article directories hard. 6 months ago ezine articles had over 1.8 million keywords in Google, today they have less than 400,000.

The same thing has happened to articlesbase, articlesnatch, and others that many claim to be the top article directories. Now ask yourself why did these sites get slapped so hard if they are the top article directories ? This is an easy answer that I should not even have to point out but since many seem to be blind no matter what I will answer it for those.

These sites got slapped because they lack real seo, they have far too many ads on all pages, they have way too many links on articles. These are just a few reasons why as I will not list them all. These reasons alone should tell you that you need to change the course with your article marketing.

If your article writing sounds like an elementary student’s first paper, it will not make the grade with the search engines. Nor will having a below par article bring you financial gain in your article marketing campaign. Put yourself in a potential client’s shoes for a moment. If you were searching for the best product to solve a problem you were experiencing in life and came upon that article mentioned above, would you honestly purchase from the author of that article?

If you are being honest with yourself, then you will answer with a resounding No! The next question regarding article writing is do you yourself want to include that type of article in your own article marketing strategy? If your answer to this is also no, then perhaps it is time to ask yourself why you are still using article writing software instead of outsourcing the work to a professional article writer.
