Writing Articles to Gain Link Popularity and Increase Trust and Credibility Ė The Secret Most Overlook and do it Wrong.Written by James R. Sanders
As I look through my various forum links and review some of my company email, I keep coming across questions relating to generating inbound links to increase web site ranking. No matter who you are, if you have a web site online you are always looking for ways to improve your link popularity. While most SEO practitioners will tell you that getting other related, non-competing, websites to link to you should be high on your priority list if you want better PR from Google or better rankings, most web site designers miss most obvious way to get these valuable one way inbound links. There is a way to do that plus generate additional content for your web site at same time. You can get those quality inbound links while expanding your content which will bring search engine spiders to your web site more often. By following my suggestions, you will be able to kill two birds with one stone, and make your visitors happy while increasing your rankings and making spiders happy all at once.
Everyone is an expert at something.
Itís true, everyone has many years of experience at something. Maybe you have been in a job for past 20 years and know just about every aspect of it, or maybe youíve been making paper airplanes as a hobby for just as much time. Either way, you have 20 years of knowledge about something that others could be looking for information to read on those topics. Maybe you have already built a web site taking advantage of that knowledge and are looking to use it as a means to make a living, or maybe itís about a hobby and you want to make a living with that. Either way, each of us has valuable knowledge that other people might want. Why not take some time, sit down and think about your business experience or hobby, and then write some ďHow ToĒ articles about it? If you have a web site that already uses that hobby, or work experience, then it is a good way to add content to your web site, and itís also a good way to help you get those inbound links you need to increase your rankings.
Using Knowledge to Gain Link Popularity through Article Writing.
Letís say you have 20 years of experience with a company where only thing you did was to conduct interviews to hire new employees. Letís further say you were so good at this that it was only thing your company wanted you to do. Because your results were so good, itís only thing you did do. Maybe your prospects always worked out and were some of hardest and most competent workers your company ever hired. You could write some articles on how to interview job candidates to get best employees, or maybe write articles telling job seekers what companies are looking for in their potential employees. If you have a web site for job seekers, or a web site for learning how to interview employees, you could then use articles for additional web site content. Itís already a known and proven fact that search engine spiders can be conditioned to visit your site more often through your patterns of adding content. The more often a site updates, more often spiders come to visit. The more often they visit, better chances that your web site will begin to jump in rankings because it is viewed as a fresh content site that updates frequently and would be more valuable to visitors.
Some might think there are just some topics so vague or uninteresting that it wouldnít be worth writing anything in that topic area, but professionals know there are readers for almost any topic area, and no one topic is to be avoided because of poor readership. It all comes down to your writing style, ease of reading, and your credibility. If you can write gripping content that pulls your readers in and informs them, then it doesnít matter what you write about. In end, reader will be looking for you and not your article. This is not something that happens over night. It takes a lot of writing and a lot of time to hone your skills to that point. It takes writing daily and forcing oneself to try different topics. Itís good to start out with what you like, but to become a professional and have flexibility, you have to write about other things too. Not only will this experience help you become a more professional writer, it will also help to develop your communication skills in written format. As you continue to use better forms of writing and grammar, you will begin to write content pages for your site that rank better with search engines. Itís a win-win situation all way around.
Articles to Increase One-way Inbound Links and Web Site Ranking.
Speaking of those rankings, that reminds me of those one-way links I spoke about earlier. After you write your article, you can submit it to other places online which will post it to their web site, offer it to other web sites as free content, or both. Most of these places will allow you to submit your own information for an ďAuthorís BoxĒ or ďAuthorís BioĒ area which they publish at bottom of each article. These are things like information about you, your web site, and LINKS you can add back to your site. There you go, instant high quality in-bound links without need to add other web siteís link to yours, no begging, no paying extortion amounts of fees for an ad, just good old fashioned content to promote your own abilities and web site. Itís easiest way to get a one-way in-bound link to your site IF you can develop your writing skills and your content viewed as valuable to another web site. If you write garbage, your information isnít credible and is full of factual holes, or your writing puts people to sleep, then chances are that your articles arenít going to do anything more than waste your time. Thatís why itís critically important to get into habit of writing often and learning flow of your chosen language.
You see, more you write, more you train your ear to listen to written words, and more you learn what ďsoundsĒ right and what doesnít quite seem to make sense. As I write an article, I am talking within my mind while I write. Yes, maybe I am a bit strange, but it works for me. I add my intonations and elevate my voice for emphasis, and I try to find ways to convey that in my writing. Iím no ďexpertĒ, but this is what works for me, and I have a decent amount of articles published, which means I must be doing something right. WebProWorld and WebProNews seem to like me, or at least my writing style or topics I cover. Maybe itís just my sincerity LOL. Hey, I do my best. I try to offer facts and ensure that I do my research before I write any article outside my field of knowledge. Character helps to build a writer, and a healthy dose of commitment to reader doesnít hurt either, but you have to find ways to build credibility and trust. Without those two things, nobody is going to read what you write, and if they do, they arenít going to be likely to click on links back to your site. You have to get their attention and compel them to want more of your writing. Thatís what will make your one-way inbound links even more valuable.

In this artile I wish to add a few more tips and strategies to explode blog traffic on your blog. Read them and use them at your own risk of attaining unexplainable traffic to your blog.
1. Get more Eyeballs to your site. Simple Logic. The more people see your blog, more are chances of somebody actually liking and posting a link to it.

Though they promise you generous traffic, actual amount of people who really read your blog are few, but what heck its still more exposure.
2. Categorize. Agreed that you can write good stuff, even lots of it, but truth is not everybody likes to read everything. Make sure you have different categories for your posts. This helps people to find stuff they like and want to came back.
3. When Headlines do matter. These aren't lines on your forehead when you don't see people visiting your blog, what I'm talking about is actual headlines in news. Yeah, try posting posts that have current media frenzy topics as subject. As search engines scour web, they would pick your site as a relevant match and will index you more often.
