    Hi Everyone,

    I tested a strategy that I read on another forum that said if you write one 250 word article a day for 90 days and submit them to Ezinearticles.com. You can see up to a eight to ten percent increase in traffic to your site. I tried it and it works! You may want to give this a try.

    Hi Jay,

    Interesting theory. I'd say that it entirely depends upon your article writing skills and your niche.

    More isn't always better but if you write an article a day for 90 consecutive days that gets published in Ezine Articles without ever getting an article published there beforehand, I certainly hope that your traffic would increase by at least 8%!

    I would agree with this. More isn't always better. I would say this is a great plan of attach when targeting your niche, however, I would consider the actual content of those articles to be the most important aspect of your articles. Best of luck.

    I love article marketing - I just wish I WOULD get one written every day!

    I love it when you write a good article and the clickthroughs are about 2:1 - makes it all so worth it.... [​IMG]

    Thanks Jay!
    some people write articles to educate the readers and position yourself as an expert, also, other people write their articles in such a way to only get traffic to their website or squeeze page. Either way is intended to drive targeted traffic. Good luck!

    Jay,

    Though I agree that it is the quality of the article which will bring your traffic rather than the quantity, I think that your method is really good for many people, especially those new to article marketing. By getting so many articles out there in such a short time, you can learn from what you did right and what you did wrong. Since you have easy access to all of those articles, you can go back and check how high up each article was listed in the search engines and how much traffic each of those generated. Then you can investigate the best and worst performers and discover WHY they performed the way they did.

    A boost in traffic is always exciting, but the lasting satisfaction comes from siphoning off a significant portion of that traffic to conversions. That ought to be the last word on measuring what really works!

    I would certainly expect more than 10% traffic to my website(s), if I was devoting at least 90 days & a 250 word article each day to ezine or any other related business, as this is quite a commitment of your daily time & you don't want to under value your worth !
    Again like has been previously mentioned, it's down to quality of the topic & if it captures the imagination & very little to do with quantity.

    I would say otherwise. The more articles you submit to ezinearticles, the more backlinks you will have pointing to your websites.

    Generally speaking, your website's serps will improve significantly. Just my opinion.

    Article marketing is a good way to drive targeted traffic to your website. The key that I have found is, good quality content that will engage your reader. If they are engaged enough to read down to your resource box the more apt they are to click on your link. The important part of your resource box is your link. People will pas the cursor over it to see where the wb address is. If it shows as a generic affiliate link 9 times out of ten they will not click it. If it shows as your own domain, your odds of quality targeted traffic to your site just went up. Quantity is good only if the quality is there. My formula for you is: Quality Content + Your Own Domain

    I agree entirely.

    That's a lethal combination. Handle with care! [​IMG]

    Basically, the more articles you have out there, the better, so what you are saying is probably accurate.

    Hello everyone,


    Article marketing is most definitely a wonderful way to increase you traffic, but here are some tips and tricks to help you boost things a bit. To simplify this process I will use the "Bartender" rule of articles.

    Lets say you are a bartender and Mr.Google (Most Used Search Engine) is your client. He would like to have a "Rum & Coke" (Your Article) but there is something you know about Mr.Google. When he has a very good drink, he can't help but to tell everyone about it. So here is where you decide to make the best drink possible.

    Now, out Rum and Coke are a mix of Keyword term (Rum) and Text (Coke). What you would want in the perfect mix, not to strong and not to weak otherwise Mr.Google will not like the drink at all.

    In a 500 word article, you would have to mention the keyword 5 times to have a keyword density of 1%. Keyword density must be between 3% - 6%, anything below will be considered Non- Relevant and anything above will be considered Spam to the search engine. you can check your keyword density HERE

    Now, it's best to have anywhere from 450 - 700 word articles of course the more the better, however people and Google love content so the more words the more likely you will be socially bookmarked, and voted highly in that article community.

    So if you provide Mr.Google between 3 - 6 percent rum with coke, he will be most satisfied and put you in high regard as an excellent bartender. I hope you guys find this useful.

    Interesting frame of reference, and I like the rum and coke example you used (although my preference would have been gin and tonic). [​IMG]

    But on a sober note, your illustration makes an excellent point. The goal is to blend the two ingredients so that they excite the taste buds and spirits of the patron. It's not unusual for a truly happy patron to chatter away and encourage others to share the experience.

    It's probably because I've just turned 67 but I prefer quality to quantity in just about everything...
