The Top 5 Article Submission Questions -- And Their Answers....

Question 1:

I'm submitting my articles to EzineArticles but I am not getting results. Why not?

My answer: hosts millions of articles on virtually every subject. Getting your articles seen is like looking for a needle in the haystack. All you are doing is building links, you need to go directly to your audience by submitting articles to websites they visit frequently for information you can provide. To see where you should be submitting your articles, go to:

Question 2:

Should you only submit articles to sites with a high page rank?

My answer:

High page rank is not the be all end all when it comes to the rankings. It is true that a link from a website in your niche with a high PR speaks more powerfully to Google about the value of your website than a link from a lower PR site in your niche, but it does not mean that links from smaller websites have no value.

First off, PageRank is not the only component that Google uses in determining the importance of a website. Second, article marketing generates targeted traffic to your website in two ways:

* Direct traffic from the articles themselves
* Indirect traffic from the search engines like Google

You get traffic directly from the articles themselves when someone finds your article on a website, and they click the link in your resource box.

No matter what the ranking of the website where your article is published, clicking the link in the resource box will still take the reader to your site. If the article is on a website in a related niche, it will usually be targeted traffic.

Question #3:

How do you determine which sites to submit your articles to?

My answer:

I look at a number of factors including:

* Their Alexa traffic rankings
* How many blog comments their blog gets -- the more comments there are, the more engaged their readers are
* How many newsletter subscribers
* How often the site is updated
* The Google Page Rank
* How much credibility the website will lend me
* Is it a site that my targeted audience goes to

Question #4: How do you find the best websites, ezines,blogs and article directories?

I use these free resources:
* LinkedIn
* Google Search Bar -- Just type in your topic and "article submission"
* Google News Alerts

Question #5

Is it better so submit your articles to thousands of websites or a handful of the top sites?

My answer:

No longer can you submit an article to thousands of article directories and expect the traffic to come pouring in! Over the last couple of years, article marketing and article submission has evolved into a tactical marketing strategy that must be executed properly in order to realize it's full potential.
