There are five powerful reasons why you, as an author, blogger or entrepreneur should use Ezinearticles for promoting your sites.
First, the large readership ensures that even articles for specialized subjects (like my college site) will still get a few hits from Ezinearticle’s worldwide audience. Ezinearticles currently (as of February, 2010) has an Alexa Traffic Rank of 51 in the US and a Traffic Rank of 132 Worldwide. That’s a lot of potential readers and this resource is well worth cultivating.
Second, it costs nothing to submit articles. This is great for those of us on a strict budget, or simply if you’re the type who wants to get the most for your money. For a minimal investment of time, you can get a huge return in terms of traffic generated. There are several traffic generating systems that depend on article marketing to create traffic for next to nothing. This is the famous “Bum Marketing Method.”
Third, with Ezinearticles, you can write and rewrite (with a new slant, of course) the same type of information several different times. As long as each article is unique, Ezinearticles is happy to publish your work. Whereas publishing several different articles with the same information on a single website would drive readers away in droves.
One of the secrets of successful writers is that they use and re-use their research many times. A good author can slant the same facts into several different markets. Of course, this can be carried too far, as in my attempt to merge the subjects of nuclear reactors and gardening for a niche blog. Who would have thought that an article titled “Plutonium – The Last Word in Gopher Removal,” would not be a hit?
Fourth, with a little research and a carefully written article, it is possible to rank highly for your chosen area of expertise. Currently, with only a few articles published, I am ranking in the following areas:
Reference and Education: 146 of 1986 (7 articles)
Self Improvement: 111 of 611 (1 article)
Finance: 1501 of 4270 (1 article)
Communications: 1606 of 3312 (2 articles)
These are surprising results with so few articles submitted. Note that my articles do not slavishly follow SEO techniques or keyword stuffing to achieve a high rank. I merely try to write what I believe will be helpful articles for my readers. Using these simple precepts, I hope to rise even higher in the rankings at Ezinearticles so that I can generate more leads to my sites.
Fifth, and most importantly, Ezinearticles provides valuable feedback on the popularity of articles. For example, I love to write about college and education; however the feedback from Ezinarticles shows that my most viewed articles are all about finance and getting the best deals. Once you have a few articles published, a review of the “Most Viewed Articles” under the “Author Tools” menu will give empirical evidence of exactly which of your articles are generating the most traffic. As an author and an entrepreneur, you should use this info to concentrate your efforts where they can do the most good.
There you have it, five great reasons to write and submit articles to Ezinearticles. What are you waiting for? See you soon at Ezinearticles.
