Introduction - Why Write Articles?
Writing and submitting articles is an extremely powerful method for promoting
your website, product or service, employed by an ever-increasing number of
website owners and webmasters. I've listed a few of the benefits you'll receive by
submitting articles to the many article directories:
Skyrocket the incoming links pointing to your website - Search
engines love links. They use links to determine how "important" your
website is. Search engines view each link pointing to your website as a
"vote" and the more votes your website receives, the higher the rankings.
Dramatically boost your website traffic, sales and newsletter opt-ins -
When you submit articles to an online article directory your articles are
picked up by other websites, featured in newsletters and sent out in
ezines. This will create additional traffic and result in more exposure.
Gain "expert" status and become recognized as an authority in your
field - By publishing information-packed articles, you'll soon enjoy the
status of being seen as an authority on your topic. This can lead to joint
ventures and many other exciting opportunities that you would never have
enjoyed otherwise.
Enjoy a flood of 100% free, targeted traffic for years to come - Once
you submit your articles and others begin using them, you'll enjoy a flood
of free, highly-targeted traffic that will come rolling in and it won't cost you
a dime. You'll never have to rely on search engines for this free traffic and
you won't be able to stop it even if you try.
