April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 1029

Articles containing original and useful content are a great way of capturing your audience and driving traffic to your site. With a bit of skill in Internet research and some basic writing skills, you will be able to reach a large market just waiting for new content, YOUR ARTICLE.

Here are 10 keys to follow when writing and publishing your articles online:

  • Pick a topic that you know something about even if it's a subject you know very little of. Then open your web browser and research as many websites as you can that deal with your given subject. After collecting data for your article, take note of any websites that offer free resources concerning the topic of your article. Include the URLs for those websites in the body of your article.
  • Once you have completed your research, begin by opening your notepad or take out a pen and a piece of paper. Start by reading through all the material you have collected and write down any lines that stand out. This technique is often called mind mapping and it's a very effective way of organizing your thoughts.
  • An ever-increasing number of article publishers are not accepting articles that promote products you sell. This being the case keep your articles free of any affiliate links. Try avoiding mentioning any products or services for which you may receive a commission.
  • At the end of each of the articles, attach a five or six line resource box that includes your email address and a link to your website or blog.
  • When you have finished creating your article do not publish it right away, save it and leave it alone for a day or two. Then come back and read it again. You may be surprised at the improvements you can make. These final improvements will make the difference between an article that gets published and one that does not.
  • There are a couple of ways of getting your articles published: submitting them individually yourself or using an article distribution service. Using an article distribution service will get your article in front of many more readers than if you simply submit them individually yourself. Of course, if you do not have the funds to utilize a distribution service. Then you'll need to submit them individually yourself, which takes time.

These are article distribution sites which will distribute your article(s) for a fee:

Below are websites that accept article submissions at no charge.

  • Use these sites to distribute your articles but also feel free to submit your articles to individual publishing sites as well. Before making individual submissions. Do some extra research and find out what the guidelines are for article submissions for each of the sites you want to submit your articles too.
  • Your articles should contain a word count of anywhere between 400 and 700 words, make sure that it contains no spelling errors. Use spell checkers to catch any mistakes. Make sure to also proofread the article to make sure the spellchecker did not miss any errors. Many publishers do not accept articles with spelling errors.
  • If you choose to send your articles individually, start by using the most popular publishing sites first (see suggested sites above) and then work your way down.
  • Provide great content for your article. Give useful and thought provoking information. Wet the readers appetite for more of the same. Make sure your resource box contains a link back to your site so they may go there and read through more of your content.

To Your Success!
