How to Make Money With Articles
Article syndication is the process of submitting your written articles to
different content websites. The purpose of doing this is to gain exposure for
yourself and your business. You gain exposure when a webmaster likes your
article and publishes it on their website. In doing so the webmaster is giving
you free publicity by presenting you as an authority on the subject of your article.
The article will generally get placed on a higher traffic webpage on the site
where the visitors can read and learn from it. It is required by the content
publishing company that the webmaster leave your 'Author Bio' information
attached to the article, which will effectively advertise you and your chosen website.
This non-reciprocal link from your published article to your website serves
multiple purposes. One it makes your website more popular in the eyes of the
Google algorithm and two it drives targeted traffic to your website. The traffic
is targeted because the person who just read your article is clicking on your
link; this is done generally because he/she is interested in you and/or your business.
If done effectively, article writing and syndication can do wonders for your
business. The usefulness of articles doesn't stop at the benefits listed above.
If you tailor your article correctly you can have it reach top rankings in
Google and create multiple instant sales.
To achieve this you must learn a few things about Google and article
syndication. If you don't already know, the new Google algorithm "Orion" highly
favors content over any other forms of advertising. The days of doorway pages,
splash pages and landing pages are over, so naturally content driven websites
and articles will begin to make their way to the top of the Google rankings.
The key to getting your article to the top is by targeting certain keyword
phrases. You don't want to target the most used and most popular keyword
phrases, instead you want to target less used keyword phrases. What you want to
do is look for phrases that only have from 500 - 1500 results in Google.
To start you can research phrases with a handy little tool located here:
Keyword Selector Tool
This tool will allow you to input a popular keyword phrase and it will give you
a list of related keyword phrases. You can use this to find keyword phrases that
gets about 500 - 1000 queries per month. After you find a few good keyword
phrase candidates, you can go to Google and check the current number of results.
To do this you simply type the keyword phrase in "quotes" and Google will return
the number of results for that particular phrase. Remember you are looking for
anywhere between 500 and 1500 results.
Once you have your targeted keyword phrase, its time to write your new article.
Of course your article will be based on the keyword phrase you are targeting and
not only that but the title of the article will need to have the keyword phrase
in it. Ill say that again, your article title needs to have the keyword phrase
that you are targeting in it, preferably word for word.
