So many questions-not sure what to ask first

    Hi All,

    As you can tell from my name I am a definite newby, but am trying and willing to learn. This forum seems so honest and helpful I just couldn't resist writing my first post to a forum here.
    My husband and I have just put up our first website. It is a site directed with women in mind because I am the author of the posts and he is the "techy" adviser. We really want this site to work well because we want more than anything to be able to work together.
    So without further ado my first question- from research we have learned that it is important to submit articles to places like ezine and goarticles. Should I try to submit the articles I've written from my blog or do I create other articles to first submit to these sites?
    Like I said my head and his are flooding with questions but this is just one that has popped into my brain right now.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks again in advance.

    Hi CG,

    Lovely to have you in the forum.

    Google, and also ezine articles and go articles, want new, fresh articles to spider and publish, so it is not a good idea to copy
    your blogs, as your blogs are already out in cyberspace.

    Always write fresh copy for both article websites ( do not use the same article for both sites ) and your blogs, and you have far more
    chance of Google giving you good page ranking.
    You can write about the same subject, just make it different.

    Hope this helps, Dessie.[​IMG]

    Dessie gave you really good advice. One way you can make your articles different is by using different style to write your articles. One article can be conversational while the other uses bullet points of lists.

    The search engines like to see fresh content like Dessie mentioned and this is one way to do it and also traffic to your blog.

    Hi Newbutlearning ,

    Welcome to the forum! The above advice is solid. Just a side note here.

    The reason that you want multiple sites is because you want to build backlinks from as many different sources that relate to your topic. The multiple backlinks tell google that your content is desirable.

    It took me a while to figure out the "why" with this one!

    I have been affiliate marketing not more than year, but I have

    been doing to as a full time for 3months, and found out

    writing an article is huge!!! once you get enough backlink and

    exposed to google, or yahoo and start making money, You will

    never want quit writing article,

    I can see you are a professional writer right? You own it!!!

    I am not even native speaker and don't have good writing skills..


    but, [​IMG] What I am targeting is [​IMG] Keywords [​IMG]on my articles!!

    My affiliate system told me spend more time on choosing the best

    keywords! you will attact more people when you have better

    keywords than your competitors.

    Once again "KEY WORDS"

    I hope this helps you

    I hope you would have got your answer. Just to make my point. Don't use articles that are in your blog. It will be then considered as duplicate content.
    Write articles, tweak a little bit and submit in various other directories. If you have time you could always write different articles for different directories, but that is not possible by every one.
    Hope you got it.

    Newbutlearning: I am working on backlinking our site today. Any suggestions?
    CG,

    Apart from writing articles related to your site niche and placing links in the resource box another way to get back links to your site is to submit your site to a couple related theme directories, find other blogs related to your niche and leave a good comment (making your name a link to your site), Answer a few questions at Yahoo Answers related to your niche and leave your site address in the resource box.

    If you spend an hour doing that once a week, and then spend the rest of your time adding good content to your blog and writing the occasional article to submit to the article directories, you'll be setting yourself up for the best long term results.

    I think it's really lovely that you and your husband are working on this together. What's your blog? Go into your profile and add your blog url to your signature so we can all take a look. [​IMG]

    Blessings,
    Angie
