Do you own a website that is receiving so-so traffic or
receiving no traffic at all? Would you like significantly
more website visitors without spending any money? If
your answer is YES to both questions, then you should
try a method that has been kept secret by
knowledgeable website owners and marketers as a top
website traffic generator -- writing articles!
The idea behind writing articles to drive traffic is simple.
You write as many quality and original articles as you
can, and then submit each article to as many article
directories as possible. These article directories in turn
will drive traffic to your site.
Note that when writing your articles, you must deliver
content that is helpful, informative and non-promotional
in nature. Moreover, your article content must focus
specifically on the
service or industry your website is targetted for.
After you have written your articles, spell-check and
proof read each and every one of them. Don't waste
your readers' time with a hastily written or
grammatically incorrect article. You will not get any
website traffic with a poorly written article.
Now that you have your proof-read articles in hand,
what next? Submit your articles to as many free-content,
free-for-reprint article directories as will accept your
articles. There are also some niche article directories
that will cater to your industry and you should also
submit your articles to these.
So where does the traffic come from? An article
directory will typically allow you to place a link back to
your website in a section about the author. Readers who
like your article will be able to click on that link and visit
Write one article and submit them to 1,000 article
directories and you have obtained 1,000 inbound links
free of charge. If several ezines pick up your article for
redistribution, then your article can potentially reach
hundreds of thousands of people via the ezines' mailing
lists. If you wrote 100 of such articles and repeated the
process for each one of these, can you imagine the
volume of web traffic you will be receiving?
Writing articles clearly gives you a free, zero capital
method to increasing your website traffic. Start writing
