Free Article Submitter Instantly Gets You Quality 1-way Links!

Posted on March 15th, 2010 in Article Marketing by WebGuru

While article submission isn’t anything shockingly new to the world of SEO, many people STILL don’t do it… and for good reason. It takes so incredibly long to do manually.

I’ll admit, I had tried article submission at one point, but after I finally found a few article directories to submit my articles to, and then after manually copying and pasting my information into the required text-boxes on each submission site, I quickly realized that my time could be better spent doing something else.

Then I came across a free program created by Brad Callen and Bryxen Software, Inc. that allows you to automatically submit your articles to hundreds of article directories with a few mouse clicks. Basically all I had to do was input my article criteria into the software, ONCE! Then, the program would automatically fill in all of the required data at each of the submission websites. Pretty incredible if you ask me.

The only part I didn’t understand was why the program is free…
but I can’t argue with that I suppose.

The software currently contains around 700 article directories, all free to submit your articles to. It is the most straightforward program that I’ve come across, in that all you need to do is:

1. Input your article details (i.e. title, article body, bio, etc.) into the software

2. Click on the directory you want to submit to

And then the program will automatically fill in your article details. Then, you simply click the submit button and your article is instantly submitted to the directory. Then, you can move to the next directory, go through the list, and by the time you’re finished you’ll have roughly 700 one way links pointing to your website.

I can’t think of an easier way to get links. Of course, if you’re going to get links this quickly, it’s important to submit different variations of your articles, to make things look more natural to the search engines.

You can do this very easily with Article Submitter when you create your project in the beginning.

The software is constantly being updated and their is an incredible community of users established that all work together to make the software better and better, so you know you’re getting great value for the money.

To check out the free software, go here:
Free Article Submitter and click the Article Submitter tab at the top.

P.S. Yes, those links redirect through an affiliate link and I get paid a small commission IF you choose to upgrade. The platinum upgrade enables submission to all directories at once with one click. Otherwise, click the “Article Submitter” tab at the above links, and even without the Platinum version, you’ll still save tons of time because you still get one-click submission for each directory, which I prefer anyway so I can tailor each submission when needed.

Why Your Articles And Videos Never Get Views

Posted on March 10th, 2010 in Article Marketing by WebGuru

All the hard work you put into article marketing, video marketing, or almost any internet marketing for this matter, is wasted if you don’t have one thing. What is it?

You HAVE to have an absolutely amazing title!

Think about it. What do you look at when your looking through search results? What is it that get’s you to click on that YouTube video you thought was going to be cool but turned out to be just plain stupid? It was the title! Sometimes the description and other data weighs in, but the title leads.

Most people think along the lines that great content is going to drive tons of traffic. Sorry, but you are all wrong. You have to remember, people do not see the content first, they see the title. Your article marketing won’t generate tons of traffic unless your title grabs their attention and gets them to click through to view the actual content of the article.

This applies for any marketing methods, not just article marketing, but video marketing, forum signatures, blog posts, PPC campaigns, and just about everything else. You won’t get ANYWHERE if you don’t have great title’s. Your going to get overlooked and all your hard work is going straight down the drain and into the archives.

So my first rule of internet marketing is to use a killer title in whatever form of marketing your using. Without a title that absolutely grabs the viewers attention and makes them say “I HAVE TO READ/WATCH THIS”, most people will see another article or video next to yours, read the title, and click it because it APPEARS to be better.

Now before I get a bunch of comments saying it’s all about the content too, yes, the content behind the title matters even more. You have to back the title up with absolutely amazing content. Otherwise, viewers will make a subconscious note, and the next time they see your name next to the title, they’ll immediately think “oh, him/her again, even though the title got my attention, I know it’s probably crap”. So yes, amazing “quality” content has to follow your title, and you have to do this every time. Every thing has to be really good content that will get people to remember you and will come back when they see titles that aren’t so catching (as not everything will be perfect, it takes trial and error).

So that’s the Why, on the next page you’ll see How To Get Your Articles Viewed By More People by writing absolutely amazing titles.

Great SEO Tools – Google Chrome Extensions

Posted on February 5th, 2010 in General News by WebGuru

With Google’s latest release of their Chrome browser, one of the most noticed features is the extensions capability. IMO, this is the one feature that was holding Chrome back as a true competitor with Firefox, being that Firefox could be highly customized and extended with literally thousands of extensions available. With it’s super fast start-up time and the minimalist interface approach, I used Google Chrome only on occasion to look something up quickly or on the go. I used Firefox with all the extensions I could possibly want on a regular basis, and it served my purpose well, where Chrome lacked the many features I have grown used to having in Firefox.

Now that Google Chrome has the added extensions feature, and several Firefox favorites have already been ported, I think Chrome has a real chance of competing with Firefox for our attention. I know it has my attention and I’m using it just as much as Firefox now, though I’ve already got so much invested in Firefox and things already setup like I want them, so there’s no push for completely moving over to Chrome yet.

What Extensions Are You Using?

So I am an extension addict (plugins too, for the WordPress users out there), and the first thing I checked out after I upgraded was the extensions. I was impressed when I found several of my favorite Firefox extensions listed. I was further impressed with the ease at which managing them was. One in particular is awesome enough, a lot of my SEO research tabs have moved to Google Chrome! More on that below, where I list all the extensions I am using right now. But enough about my thoughts. What do you think these new features mean for Chrome’s competition? There is also some things going on with Chrome APIs, not to keen on what that’s about yet. Post your comments below!

What Google Chrome Extension’s Am I Using?

  1. 1-ClickWeather for Chrome – I’m a Weather.com fan, and when I saw a Weather.com extension and the vague idea I had from the text, I had to try it out, and I’m glad I did. It’s not all inclusive, and I think it could be expanded, but it does give a decent view of the current weather, radar image, and several links to key Weather.com local area pages, including the Classic Animated Radar Map, which sold me.
  2. AdBlock – What more can I say, it blocks the ads. Firefox users will be familiar with this one. I’m very happy to see it here. A second plugin, Browser Button for AdBlock adds a button to the right side of the toolbar so you can easily turn it off if needed.
  3. Bookmark Tree – I searched for this one. It adds a yellow star button to the right side of the toolbar, which produces a drop-down list of your favorites in a folder tree view. I had been using the bookmarks bar for one-click access to some sites I used most often in Chrome (which before was few). This seems a much better option and frees up more screen space, I love how slim Google Chrome is!
  4. Chrome SEO – Here it is! This is the SEO tool that I liked so much I moved many tabs away from Firefox and into Chrome (sorry Firefox, I still love you). I used SEO Quake in Firefox because it was all encompassing and I could easily turn it on and off. There might be other alternatives like this, so please let me know. But this extension, Chrome SEO, gives the main site statistics I look at in a nice little drop down menu from an icon added to the right side of the toolbar, including page ranks, inbound links, and quite a few others, plus links to more. It only runs when you click it, so it isn’t hogging any bandwidth when you really don’t need it, which was the deciding factor in my case.
  5. Session Manager – Oh the joys! My Firefox would not be complete without my long list of saved sessions, of which I use three or four regularly. The absence of this feature has been the main cause for me not to move to Chrome. I have way to much going on and things I need to check out that I have to have my saved sessions. I haven’t had enough time to really test them out in Chrome yet, but I look forward to the experience.

Give Me More!

That’s it for now. I am sure I will add more as time goes, but I have enough to learn for now. You can find more extensions at chrome.google.com/extensions. You can also learn more about the plugins feature at “Google Chrome Blog: Over 1,500 new features for Google Chrome“. So check them out, and let me know what you find is great about the new Google Chrome!
