Website Promotion – Writing Articles Generates Traffic Four Different WaysWritten by Charles Essmeier
There are many different ways to promote your Website in order to generate traffic. Most of them cost money, but one of most effective techniques is free – writing articles about topics relating to your Website and submitting them to “free content” sites. It’s easy to do, takes relatively little time, and can increase your Website traffic in at least four different ways.
The article-writing technique is simple. You write articles about topics that relate to your Website. The articles don’t have to be overly long or complicated; 250-500 words will do nicely. Then you submit them to “free content” Websites that publish them and make them available to their own readers. This helps your own Website’s traffic in four different ways:
Your article on free content site contains a link to your own Website. Readers of article may, if they choose, click on link to pay your site a visit.
The free content site makes your article available to other Webmasters who may wish to publish article on their own site. If they do, your article will include a link back to your site, and anyone who reads article on that site may click on link to pay your site a visit.
As your list of published articles grows larger, and more and more of your articles appear on different Websites, cumulative total of links to your own Website increases. The major search engines place a lot of significance on incoming links to Websites in order to determine “importance” of a particular Website. The more incoming links a Website has, more “importance” a search engine attaches to it. This can substantially your Website’s placement in search results when someone searches for your Website’s topic.
