There are a number of ways that articles can be used to generate traffic and earn money on the internet. For instance you could write articles and earn money directly from sites that purchase articles, a google search will turn them up. You can write articles and post them to high traffic sites that are user monitized such as hubpages and Squidoo where what you do is enter your google adsense code and other affiliate ids and you then get paid for clicks on the ads shown with your article.Or register with an outsourcing site such as odesk and earn money from freelance writing and get paid for publishing articles or writing essays, poems or stories for people requesting them. You can even write entire ebooks and publish and sell them as digital products on places like Clickbank, or ebay.

The main purpose of this page however is to introduce you to ways of getting traffic and backlinks to your site or blog by writing articles around your keywords and publishing those articles in ezines and online article sites. The basic idea is that as search engines spider and find those articles they will visit your site via the backlinks you place in the articles body or in the footer that has your name and details in it so you get better search engine rankings by having more articles out there in the world wide web, of course the other benefit is the readers at those sites finding your articles and directly coming to your site via the links. All of this not only helps spread your name and get traffic back to your site but it also raises your credibility so long as your articles are of a good standard.

When posting articles out to sites like ezinearticles you want to ensure they actually help you and dont hurt your image, its fine to have lots of articles around the web but if they are misleading or poor quality its not going to have the desired effect so is many ways less is more. You should be writing small feeder articles specifically for and about the topics that you have on your website while making them of good quality you dont want to out shine the content of your actual site so try to ensure that what is on your site is somewhat better and more detailed than any of the articles you post to ezines and article sites while still maintaining the quality of those feeder articles so that they do the job of captureing the interest of people that find them and give them a reason to cine abd visit your site for even more detailed higher quality information.

So there are 3 valid reasons for writing articles around your keywords and website or blog topics. Below is a step by step breakdown of how to first come up with your ideas, get some material to research and expand on your ideas and then create your articles. Finnaly links to locations where you can publish your articles and some tools that will help speed up and automate the process or at least make it much faster and easier.

I will also tell you how to get your hands on free articles that you can freely reprint and what you should do before using any of them on your site or in your Article Marketing Campaigns.


Researching Articles

Before Writing an Article or publishing one online we must do a bit of research.
Write down the following on a notepad next to your computer while you investigate further or use this page and enter them in the spaces below temporarily so you can keep referring back while you build your own notes and your first article:
(don't close it or the info you enter will be removed)

Your Niche Topic: Max 30 Characters
Your Main Keyword:
(max 30 Characters)
Short Description of your Articles subject matter: (Max 60 Characters)
A Search term that somebody who wants to find your article might use: (Max 60 Characters)

Now that you have your subject matter and basic details in mind.

The first place to check for articles is the site that you are promoting if it is an affiliate site,
Check and see if they provide any articles, email templates etc for you to use as a starting point.
If so download them or copy them and save them onto your computer for further study and analysis.
NEVER use them exactly as is, that will NOT help you at all, you MUST TOTALLY REWRITE them.
Article writing is NOT ADVERTISING and Most affiliate info is marketing hype and may be exagerated and borderline bollocks. Also when writing about somebody elses product or service in an article format you dont want to appear to be involved directly with the product so you must avoid all hype and any direct claims or promises.


Gather some Intel
Google in your firefox browser with the research plugins installed as explained in our keyword tools section
Enter your keyword into Google
Look at the first page of results ignoring all "Sponsored Links" and starting at the top of the organic results.
Look at the exact Keyword usage within the results titles and descriptions.
Which ones are effective?
Jot down some ideas

Now using the links that appear from the firefox keyword tools go over them and get some keyword ideas, copy down what you find,

Next visit the top few sites and physically examine the page, playing particular attention to any headings and titles, bolded words, outbound links and of course keyword usage.

Use the Find tool in your browser to look for and locate your keyword that you searched for in Google.

in iE:
Edit- "Find on this page"

So is it here? how often? if so keep looking for the next appearance and note how many times your keyword appears on the page, notice how its used . - whatever the number of times your keyword appears in these top ranking search results your article must have the keyword appear in its text at least a few, lets say 2 to 3 ectra times without getting spammy. if you want to have a hope of beating that page in the organic listings "based on keyword quality" if course there are other factors such as off page SEO that affect ranking positions.
If your keyword is NOT FOUND on the page its likely your using a Keyword Phrase- narrow it down to a single or double keyword.

Keep going through the top search engine results looking for articles and blog entries that have your keywords and getting more ideas while taking notes.

Look for blogs and articles which are not only " keyword compatible" but that also clearly within your exact niche topic matter and see which blogs and articles people are visiting and commenting on more than others.
Lots of comments means they are onto a winner so check out the articles and read some of the comments for even more ideas. Also take note of their pagerank and alexa rank. If your using the firefox plugins I mentioned the ranks will be displayed in your browser while your on the page.
Copy down their keywords and read through the articles to see if you can better it, expand on areas where they are lacking or more details and additional resources and references.

Heres one more need little trick that will help you discover which articles are getting the most traffic at
open Google in your browser and type in your keyword or phrase.
After the keyword type this: "This article has been viewed 2000..199999" "Article Submitted On: * *,2011"

so if your keyword is make money then type it exactly as this:

make money "This article has been viewed 2000..199999" "Article Submitted On: * *,2011"

then Click Search
What you will see are all the posts that are getting the most traffic!
This method is really powerful because you can see which topics are the getting the highest traffic and you can basically copy their secrets..;)
(Hint: The" Title and Description are the most important components of these articles as far as why they are getting ranked well and clicked on in the Google results! )

Google Trick 2
Here is the little Google Hack I found. Very nice and it should be easy to do.
First, grab the "greasemonky addon for firefox", when you use this addon you get a new search option button to retrieve only urls from the results of your search.
Now, do a search with this hack allinurl:submit "article".
Once the search is complete we get a ton of results to post articles.
These are hot because Google sees them as the top returns.

and even if you have permission think about WHERE you reprint it, keep your main site free of all duplicate content and post anything that has even the remote possibilty of already existing elsewhere on free article sites or blogs then link them back to your main site.

Time To Write Some Articles

Now its time to write some of your own unique articles

Take lots of notes, write them next to you on paper and copy and paste key bits of information as you come across it into a text file. Grab paragraphs, sentences and even whole articles and examine them, rearange them but keep in mind that its for your research purposes only. Mash together and organise what you have found to make it flow, in essense rewriting the articles you found as you go. The more you play around with it the better what you have in front of you will get. So now that you have done some research and have some keyword ideas and a copied buy rehashed article or two to help you get started its time to get to work on writing it up in your own words to ensure that you have absolutley no doubt about it being genuinely unique content.

Don't stress about it being perfect, the important thing is to have a go and get it posted. You need to have your own content but you can if you take care intersperse it with other public domain and plr articles for which you have obtained rights too or legally copied by following the below guidelines.

re-write freely obtained articles

Many Affiliate programs will give you Articles to submit and most people will start copying the same thing and submitting the same exact articles to the same article directories. When this occurs it is possible that the article sites will reject your submissions and even ban the author or sites that are submitting them. Therefore, it is best for you to write your own unique article copy whenever possible or at the very least do a re-write of any legally obtained articles you want to submit whether supplied by sites and affiliate programs, purchased or downloaded from some plr site.



Analyze Your Article

After writing or obtaining your articles you can analyze them for keyword density here:

Spinning articles is fine, what this does is basically swap words and many of the powerful spinning tools I have listed below will help you radically change an article you have so you can be certain to not have duplicate content but when spinning any article be careful to maintain readability. You don't want to produce something with bad grammer or that just does not make sense so always read and reread your articles before submitting them anywhere.

Before you submit any article to any site first upload a "master or expanded version" with anchor text links, pictures, bolded headings using H1,H2,H3 Tags to your main website and then get it to show up in search engines using the backlink methods here - link your keyword related articles to each other and have an index of articles linked to from your homepage. If your using a blog such as wordpress just post them as normal.

Check that your content is not picked up as copied ( plagiarized ) here:
For your own unique articles you can "Defend your site with a free plagiarism warning banner!

Now what you want to do once you have your main article up on your site and ready is to create several smaller versions, these are your teasers and feeder articles that you post out to the article directories to bring people back to your main article. This is where you can make use of article spinning to change the words used. After spinning break it up, seperate your paragraphs and make several small articles. Keep no more than one link from a keyword in each version that points back to your main article. proof read each one and make sure that it makes sense and entices the reader to come and get more information. prepare and apropriate byline or signature that you will have printed below your article on the sites and ezines. If you really want to amp things up do a search for some offline related magazines that may accept your article and send them in.

Submit your Articles

Here is a list of sites where you can submit your articles to: offers a great service of both writing articles for you and also delivering them at very affordable prices.
Below are some more resources that I personally use. All of them have been tested by either myself or people I know and they are proven to get results . Whatever you do don't post the same version of any article to more than one site, thats bad, you want to make sure you use the same "keywords" buy use a slightly different version for each and every site.

Print Magazines are a great way to get your articles published and give them legs, its also somthing that many online marketers dont do and yet any offline marketer or old school direct mailer will tell you there an exceptionally low cost way of generating tonnes of orders.

Articles have long term benefits so the sooner you start using them the better..


Spinning Tools


Spinning OR Rewriting articles, often referred to as article spinning is were an application or online tool takes an article and rewrites it on the fly, basically they replace certain words with other words that mean the same thing, reorder and reformat the text.

It's easy to find articles to re-write by searching article sites and blog sites using your keywords to get ideas.
But again I must stress: Do not steal content this way, it will not help you!, in fact it will do the exact opposite and it demonstrates a lack of real knowledge and very low integrity!
You must rewrite any articles you download, buy or "borrow", and check for duplicate content when analyzing an article prior to posting them as your own!
There is a difference between compiling research material for your articles and blatent plagerism so be very careful not to fall into the trap of cut and paste article submissions!

Why would you settle for private label rights (PLR) articles which are being used by hundreds or possibly thousands of others when you can quite easily create your own totally unique and better articles? If you are having trouble creating unique high-quality content for your web sites and need more content but are tired of spending hours and hours researching each article that you write then you can STOP, be sure you do it for at least a few so you know the process, know what is good and what is bad but once your able to do it you can actually stop doing the manual article research, because you can actually create high quality articles on virtually any subject in just minutes with the right tools. Even if you know nothing about the subject matter at all when you get started. Just be careful not to get caught up in hype and remember unique content ALWAYS trumps duplicate when it comes to search engines and in fact the readers your writing for.

The first program I will introduce you to is instant article wizard pro:

The Following service uses REAL HUMANS to Rewrite your articles! Send them PLR articles you want rewritten and they will do it for you.

I got these articles maybe 5 or more years ago, possibly even 10 and they are all on business and money making related topics. I do have hundreds more, probably thousands and will be adding some to this list eventually or maybe swapping these ones out, or rewriting them to make them my own unique higher value articles which I can use when I eventually get around to it, I suggest that if your going to use any of them yourself that you do a total rewrite, spin them, then rewrite them again.

Clickbank Products
Theres a new wave of automated software hitting the net at the moment, In fact clickbank is swamped with them, As I write this (march 2011) the top 20 items available on clickbank are all backlink generating mass posting software applications which really says something about where things are heading. I think there is like 2 out of the higest gravity products that are not automation software.

Do they work, you bet your ass they do but with so many being flogged at the moment it will be interesting to see how the article sites handle it, I can see a lot of cra quality stuff getting pumped out there as a result and google and article sites, forums etc adjusting to combat it all so if your considering using any of them I would get in quick before they get shut down. I bet they are working on it right now as you read this.

I have purchased a few of them and I will be running them through some trials
and posting my findings in my blog
