Advice on directing traffic and SEO through article submission sites.

One of the most prominent ways to optimise your site for search engines, is by writing articles for other sites. As i have previously mentioned Free traffic systems is one however this post will deal with sites where you have to submit one article at a time. I'm guessing your thinking why bother when you can get 100's of links just from one site?

The answer is simple, search engines are constantly being updated and it is far more likely multiple submissions sites and their blogs will get bumped down in value or even sandboxed from the web. This is because although they are claiming it is natural it is clearly not the case since you use meta tags to change small parts of an article which is basically the same thing on thirty blogs.

You see link building to be natural needs human love, and writing multiple articles that are relevant to your site and creating a link to it using good solid key words is giving it a bit of TLC.

Firstly when choosing your submission site you need to be looking for a site which offers quality one way links, best way to find this out is perform a simple search with the keywords 'article submission free one way link' the highest results = best quality. Don't just stick to one though try a few out.

Now when you write your article keep it on topic of your own website you will be linking it too. The method of your writing should be informative, accurate and with correct spelling and grammar. It should be content rich but readable. Carefully placed keywords should be used. Treat it like your own site in many respects the first paragraph should be have good keywords without overloading and making it's value useless. Try if you are talking about a subject give a specific aspect of the topic and try not to write to much. If possible try and make it like a small preview of your own work so you can go further into depth on your own site.

There is no reason why you cant write an article on one site, and use a different aspect on another or even write the same article but in a completely new way. Make sure when you write the article you add the site you wish it to backlink it too. When doing this it is best instead of simply putting you websites address wrap it around some text. This is done by using HTML code, < a href="your website address"> Keywords you want to write< /a>, obviously without the spaces. The words again should be keywords that will entice people to them and entice search engines.

Remember there are a few other things to consider. Don't just copy and paste other already published works. You will get found out and your article will have little or no value. Try to keep it content rich but don't go over board and write a series of very long essays.
Try to keep each submission to under 1000 words. Use different pages on your site to link to different submissions. Although the bulk should still link to your frontpage.

You think if for 1 site you do 3 submissions a week that 3x52 weeks = 156 links per year, do ten that's 520 per year. All these links will add up.

Don't think for one minute this is the only thing you will need to do to optimise your site, there are many other avenues to pursue some more tailored to particular niches but not for others. To properly optimise your site you should have many strategies. Many i have already posted and will continue to do so as i get more.
