Article Directories: The Path to Great SEO

Getting visitors to your website has been the ultimate dream of internet marketers. More traffic equals more money, so they say. But how can you do it without spending a fortune?

The latest rage in free SEO seems to be Article Marketing and with good reason. It is by far the best free method of promoting your business and increasing your sales and opt in subscribers, while providing needed back links for increased PR.

By submitting your articles to article directories, article announcement lists, and ezine publishers, you accomplish three things:

1. You establish yourself as an expert in your field. Readers are more likely to listen to you if they feel you know what you are talking about.

2. By attaching a resource box to your article, you are giving the reader a link to your website. If the reader is impressed with your knowledge, they will likely click on your link to see what it is that you are offering. A good technique is to only write about a portion of your topic and entice the reader back to your site for a more in-depth version.

3. You increase your search engine page rank by providing a non-reciprocal link to your website. Search engines seem to give extra weight to non-reciprocal links in their page rankings, especially if they are from content relevant sources.

Almost all article directories allow free reprint rights to webmasters and publishers, who must keep the article intact along with your resource box, which in turn multiplies the effects on your page rank and exposure.

Good articles contain useful information to the reader whether they buy your products or not. Give them good content and you will increase the chances that they will click your link in the resource box. If the article is well written and about a strong niche topic, the article will get picked up by many websites for their own sites, which can provide you with a wonderful set of viral links to your site. The more frequently your article gets picked up, the more opportunity there is for another webmaster to see it and pick it up, too.

By submitting articles with a link that points to your website, you are assured of long term traffic. As long as your article stays in the directories that you submit to, people can find it and the chances of getting traffic to your website is increased. A few of the article sites where you can submit to are goarticles.com, ezinearticles.com, ideamarketers.com, articlecity.com and www.free-article-submit.com.
