Part 3 of a 3 part SEO Article Strategy!
How to strategically place your SEO articles on the InternetIn part one we learned the basics of SEO Article Creation. In part two we learned the art of SEO Article Preparation and in this lesson you will learn SEO Article Placement and how to advertise those articles on the Internet.
Now lets get these articles published.
One of the first places you are going to want to submit your articles is an ezine articles database. Listed below is about 10 different ezine directories you will want to place the SEO articles that you have just produced. However, you don't want to place the same article in all 10. You want to capitalize on these directions and put one unique article in each all pointing back your site.
Short List of Directories:
One of the first steps to SEO article placement is knowing how to setup an account on one of these ezines. So below I have included a video on how to setup an account at www.ezinearticles.com and to make your first SEO Article Submission.

Note: In the first lesson I instructed you to create your SEO articles in notepad. In lesson two we started adding formatting and images to these articles. In notepad you cant do that. Creating your articles in Microsoft Word and then trying to copy and paste them into an ezine editor can cause more problems then its worth. So I recommend either purchasing web page development software or waiting until you open an account and use the directory article editors to apply yesterdays lessons formatting and picture options to your articles.
Bonus - I highly recommend you create a Google Knol account. This is a FABULOUS resource for placing articles and driving traffic to your website. Rodney's Google Knol has only a few articles and has driven thousands of people back to my site.
Advertising your SEO articles:
Managing your SEO articles also involves the advertisement of those articles. Yes, placing the articles on these sites is advertisement but its only the first step. Also, I am only going to give you a few hints on how to do this. You will just have to wait till later to really learn how to make these articles produce for you. I promise I will reveal all down the line. :)
Social Marketing is a good place to start. Most business professionals have a LinkedIn account, Twitter account or Facebook account. These are great social tools for article advertisement to promote your product, service or business. When I write an article I just simply share it with my social networks (amongst other ways) providing a brief synopsis of the article and a direct link to it. These links within my social networks are then spread around and emailed to others. Before long I submitted to just 5 places and gathered over 600 readers that all direct back to my website. This is how you drive IMMEDIATE "valuable" traffic back to your site and at the same time "in time" raising your websites page rank.
- Down the road I will teach you how to be able to capture everyone coming to your website for future article submissions, product releases or service updates which will COMPLETELY make what you are doing here in the beginning XPLODE with site visitors.
