Why Your Article Marketing Isn’t Generating Tons Of Traffic

Posted on March 12th, 2010 in Article Marketing by WebGuru

Even with a great title and quality content, you are losing out on article marketing traffic…unless you know how to work the bio box. It’s all about the bio (or signature area for forum marketing) that links back to your site. Like most failing marketers, you are probably putting a link to your web site, but you are probably doing it all wrong.

Don’t just put your link there and expect people to click on it. Why would they? They’ve read your article, got the information, and now they are moving on to see what else they can read to learn more. And that’s exactly where you catch them, with your bio box.

First, don’t put everything in one article, split it up. Leave them wanting more, and in the bio box, tell them where to go next. I know what some of you are saying, “Why not just put the affiliate link there, skipping everything else?” Because, one, getting them to your site and reading more builds trust, gets them to come back for more, and they’re much more likely to follow through when you do present that affiliate link, and two, putting your affiliate link out front is the quickest way to get rejected, if not banned.

So what do you write to get people to click through to your web site? Check out my articles and pay close attention to the very last paragraph. That’s where I always have a hook to get viewers to keep reading more.

Here are a few tips:

  1. the wording should get viewers to take action, as in clicking the link to find out more
  2. don’t link to your home page, provide link to a directly related page or post
  3. needs to provide incentive, why should they click the link? not just to learn more, pull them in
  4. don’t use the same bio for all articles, tailor it to get the current subject
  5. always use a keyword phrase in the link, it is after all a great backlink.
  6. That’s the end of this short series and you should see more traffic from your articles following these steps, but don’t think that’s all there is to say.

New Article Marketing Series

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

So I know I haven’t been as active as I first intended, but I hope to change all that. To start, I’m going to focus on specific section of this site in order to build each section up to a level I’m happy with, starting with a few marketing tactics to get more visitors coming, followed by an extensive series on how I use all the WordPress plugins for optimal pages, placement, marketing, and monetization.

So the first set of marketing tactics are going to revolve around article marketing. However, as several sections will overlap as, several of the tips can and should be used in other areas too, and I will restate, interlink, and expand on them when I get to the other tools and marketing techniques I use.

This Article Marketing Series will be a cornerstone for this site, and among the first marketing methods implemented. They will make up the Totally Free Article Marketing section and soon that page will be set up as a gateway to them. I will practice the methods in these articles, to promote the articles themselves in the same way. These methods (and a few others) should increase the flow of traffic to this site, and with any luck, I can start seeing some revenue generated from AdSense clicks and a couple of affiliate products I recommend.

Following the series, your going to learn the “other” methods I’m currently using to promote these articles and more. So look out for more free tools and how I’m using them in the near future on TotallyFreeWebSiteTools.com!
