What Posting Articles Online did for my Google Page Rank in90 Days

Written by Dr. Lynella Grant

Article Marketing Builds Momentum and Traffic When I started submitting articles to ezines and directories I was happy just to get an occasional article written and widely posted online. I assumed that wasrepparttar point. But I've since learned about equally important considerations--likerepparttar 128269 Page Rank ofrepparttar 128270 site where it appears.

Each article was written to inform and appeal torepparttar 128271 human readers. Search engines were incidental in my mind. I wasn't systematic about submitting new ones on a regular basis so they built momentum. Nor was I careful to emphasize my website's keywords and principal theme. But I do now--it matters. Despite that,repparttar 128272 articles already posted have been hard at work for me.

My list of places for submitting keeps expanding. And it's further refined with every article posted. After a year and a half, that's a large list (nearly a thousand). And I'm a known quantity with sites and ezines that consistently post my contributions. My best-received article to date shows 181 Google mentions (with their related incoming links).

Starting from Zero Online Visibility I launched a new website mid-June, 2004, using article marketing asrepparttar 128273 primary traffic-building strategy (Yellow Page Sage, getting your Yellow Page ad and website working together). The first article was a strong one, getting 135 Google cites.

Overrepparttar 128274 next three months I wrote and posted seven articles related to Yellow Pages or Local Search. The website also provided extensive information about Yellow Page advertising by other authors--making it very sticky and content-rich.

Creating an Article 12-pack After they were submitted to my list, I combined those seven articles with five of my prior marketing articles - twelve in all (with a link to each article). Instead of offering them as onesees, I now sendrepparttar 128275 whole batch (lettingrepparttar 128276 receiver pick what they want).

I prepared a letter offeringrepparttar 128277 12-pack, asking if they want to receive similar future ones. That letter is only sent to websites I've visited. I'd never offer it to a site unless there's a good fit. Sending outrepparttar 128278 12-pack is an ongoing activity, and another way to expand my list. Some websites have postedrepparttar 128279 whole set - twelve return links from one letter!

Surprise! Google Noticed me! Since I was busy gettingrepparttar 128280 site polished and launched, it caught me by surprise that in two months my Google Page Rank was 3/10 (the first time I checked). Andrepparttar 128281 following month it had climbed to PR 4/10 - without doing anything but post seven articles. I didn't yet realize it was getting extra mileage because ofrepparttar 128282 strength of my list. So moving to PR 5/10 can't be too far off, can it?

Increase Online Traffic With Directory Listings

Written by Anita DeFrank

Some ofrepparttar best advertising available online would be getting listed in directories. This doesn't mean submitting to search engines. If you write quality ad copies and build a quality site;repparttar 128268 important search engines will find you.

What I am talking about is directories that you pay to be listed in. With these types of directories you pay to be listed in for a certain about of time. Some are weekly, monthly, yearly and even lifetime listings. This is also an excellent way to get those 'back links' to help you rank better in search engines.

It is a proven fact that 'back links' help increase online traffic. But,repparttar 128269 back links that are most effective are links to your website without a return link. Take Link Exchanges for example. With Link Exchanges you request one website owner to place a link to your website on their site with a link on your website to their in return. These are effective however, most directory listings that you pay for do not require a link in return and these are a more effective form of backlinks.
