    Just quick reminder when submitting articles please check your links...or you will send traffic to somebody else just as I did yesterday and it is still ongoing...

    I started new site and submitted article to e-zine and since I am platinum level it got approved next day. Today when I checked Google analytics it showed already 7 visits from this article. Nice! But when I checked e-zine it showed that article was ready by 96 people and it sent 20 people to site??

    Finally I discovered that my anchor link was wrong ( forgot to put "tips" at the end [​IMG] and I sent 13 visitors to doghousebreaking site.

    So, check your links [​IMG]

    I think sometimes even the best of us get going and forget the little checks...

    I second that! And do it as many times as necessary to make sure they are correct.

    I have a couple of articles written years ago that are still floating around with links in the resource box pointing to a totally unrelated website.

    I discovered the error months after the articles were published. How embarrassing! [​IMG]

    And so it goes...

    Ha ha I have done that as well, I completely misspelled my web site ! I now have a spread sheet system system that has all these details on them ( what i have posted and where ) it has been a great help and speed things up a lot. I digress my point is that with this i go through the sites every now and then to see that everything is sweet and how it should be

    I sometimes make a similar mistake...

    I tend to use a lot of .info domains, but sometimes I forget when I submit them to EZA and mistakenly turn them into .com

    So far, EZA has always caught them because there's no "real" website there. So they reject the article for "faulty" links. So I get to fix them.

    Still embarrassing though... (blush)

    I did that recently posting to a forum. Gave some great tips on getting back links and then posted my website address incorrectly...after swearing at myself I went back in and posted again with the advice that a really effective way to get back links is to give the correct website address...[​IMG]
