After you’ve finished building your website, the next step is to drive traffic (or visitors) to it so that it can be seen. Search Engines, Safelists, PPC (Pay Per Click) Search Engines, Banner Ads, Ezine Ads, Bulk Traffic, and a variety of other methods are just a few of the options. A search engine listing will bring you the most targeted visitors for the least amount of money out of all of these options. However, you will need to build backlinks to your website in order to achieve a high search engine ranking (i.e. hyperlinks to your website from other websites). Submitting your website to directories or exchanging links with other websites are the best ways to do this. Writing articles with a link to your website(s) and submitting them to article directories is a relatively new and popular way to do this. This method provides you with free backlinks, which are crucial to your search engine ranking, as well as free targeted visitors who click on your link in the article.
When you’re writing your articles, make sure you’re providing people with good, useful information rather than overtly selling something. If at all possible, write about something you know a lot about. Before you show your articles to the world, make sure you spell check and proofread them. You could also repeat the same phrase or keyword in your articles a few times to pique readers’ interest.
After you’ve written a good article or articles, you’ll need to submit or publish them on the internet. The first way to do this is to submit your article to article directories manually. You can easily find a plethora of sites willing to accept your submissions for free by searching for terms like “article directory” and other similar terms in search engines. www.ezinearticles.com and www.article-world.net are two good article directories to submit to to get you started. You could also use specialized software to submit your article to a number of article directories on your behalf. Article Submitter Pro and Article Announcer are two good examples of this type of software. Finally, using an article submission service like Isnare or Article Marketer to publish your articles is a good option. For a fee, these services will submit your article to multiple article directories on your behalf.
