Drive More Traffic To Your Blog – One More Way

by Place for Bloggers

As bloggers we keep looking for ways to bring more traffic to our blogs. One of the ways is writing a guest post in one of the problogger blogs. However only few get such a chance.

Imagine you could write a guest post in a blog with high page rank and a lot of traffic. No need to imagine you can start now.

There are several sites around that are designed for letting writers post their articles to be featured within the site. In this article I’ll discuss the most known EzineArticles.com, but the principles can be applied for similar article sites as well.

Why Ezine? –>Traffic and Page Rank

  • You’ll get a chance to receive a massive increase in exposure. Remember how many time you visited Ezine while Googling.
  • Ezine has high Page Rank which can be shared with you. You would be able to embed several backlinks to your blog.

Where do I start

  • Register for free and set up your expert profile.
  • Invest couple of minutes in filling your profile bio and photo. People are more likely to click your blog if they see your photo.

What should I publish

  • Select one of your best articles.
  • Select a post that contains several links to other posts on your blog. The number of links you can embed in a published article is limited so choose your links wisely. For example of article with backlinks see make the best  of All In One SEO Pack

That’s all?…almost

  • Read carefully the editor guidelines to avoid any delays in the approval process.
  • After you sign up, Ezine starts sending you tips for writing articles. They are actually quite good. Spend couple of minutes reading them, you can apply those tips later in your blog.

Remember The Goal

Your goal is to get more exposure and bring new visitors to your blog, and not vice versa. Even if you are proud to have expert account don’t put link to your Ezine profile in your blog. It would only drive people out of your blog.

Know any good article sites? please share

Great stuff Shay. I’ve never used article marketing as a way to drive traffic to a site but I’ve heard it works well.

Once you’re established though, does it help that much compared to simply posting on your own site? Or do you post on your own site then post on the article directories?

Ezine articles is a great source for traffic and high quality one way backlinks to your blog!

I rewite my articles one to two times and submitt them to article base and article alley too, so you get a lot more traffic for just a little bit more work!
