Content Using Articles
Adding content Using articles is a widely used and helpful practice on the
Internet.You can find
articles on most any topic you might think of.
By adding content using articles you can add many pages to your website without doing all the
writing yourself. This saves a lot of time and research for webmasters and ezine editors.
While this can be a major time saver, you do need to exercise some good judgment and follow some
guidelines before using articles for content.
When adding content using articles, examine
the article carefully:
1. Does the article target your market and the other content of your website?
2. Will the article offer information that your visitors will find informative and interesting?
3. Is it well written?
4. Does it include good spelling and grammar?
Another thing to consider is how many links the article contains. Look through both the body and
the resource box. The bio box needs to remain intact and not be altered. When it goes onto your website the links
must remain live. You must take the article as it is, so if it has a lot of spelling or grammatical errors, move on
and find a better article.
The author spent time and effort on developing the content for the article and deserves credit
both in appreciation for the content, and in including live links that may bring traffic or search engine
recognition to the author and the author's website.
Having said that, you need to look out for yourself and your website as well. A number of
authors get carried away when they add links. Read the article through both so you will know if it is a good match
for your website content and also to check to see how many links it contains.
All those are outgoing links and you don't want to get overloaded. Promoting a website is a
balancing act, links out and links in. You want to provide your visitors with valuable content and resources, and
that requires some linking out. This is good if it doesn't get off balance. You need to keep more links pointing in
than pointing out.
Balance your links by submitting articles yourself
By writing and posting articles yourself, you can get quite a lot of incoming links and help
maintain this balance. Submit articles often. Article submission can be either free or low cost depending on how
you go about it, but it is one of the best ways to get incoming links and recognition for your website.
Before you submit an article read through it and make any corrections necessary. You can use
spellchecker, but don't depend on it alone to find errors. It doesn't read like a human.
Go Articles and Ezine Articles are two good article banks, but there are scores of them. Some
article banks provide more general content in categories while others are more niche specific. Do a search and you
will find many. If you are targeting a specific market with your articles you may want to do a search with your
keyword to find article banks.
So, to recap. Content using articles can help you build pages faster. Do add content using
articles, but use good judgment and follow the guidelines. Do submit articles yourself for incoming links.
