Article Writing – How to Create a Continuous Flow of Visitors to Your Web Site

Is your web site one of many millions on the Net receiving little or no visitors?

Are you going to leave it like that or do something about it?

One of the most effective methods for attracting visitors to you site is writing and submitting articles. A well written article can generate traffic for years to come. The more articles you produce the more traffic you receive.

How to write an article that attracts visitors

1. Provide a tip on your favorite subject

People love to receive tips. These are bite size chunks of information your customers can easily digest because they are quick to read and easy to act upon. Compare that to a long drawn out article containing tons of information you find hard to digest and take action upon.

2. Write how you talk

Write in a personal style as if you are sitting opposite the person. Don’t use corporate language. Use “I” or “you” instead of “we” or “our”. This enables the reader to relate to you on a more personal level.

3. Don’t worry about grammar or spelling

Once you start writing ideas spring up in your mind that you should immediately incorporate in your content. Therefore don’t stop this flow by correcting the grammar and spelling as you write. Just keep writing until you’ve run out of ideas. If you don’t have time to write everything down, make short notes elsewhere. These will come in handy for future articles.

4. Keep it short

Keep your article to 500 words or less. People prefer reading shorter articles over longer ones because their time is limited. Longer articles can be created by combining several short articles.

5. Structure your article

A. Open the first paragraph by pointing out a problem. Expand on this problem in the next paragraph.

B. Offer your solution and expand on it in the next few paragraphs.

C. The last paragraph should summarize what you have already said. Don’t copy what you’ve written but say it in a different way using different words.

D. Provide a call to action in the resource box at the end of your article. This is where you invite your reader to take action by visiting your web site. Make the call to action a smooth transition from your article content.

6. Proof read your article

Check your content for grammar and spelling mistakes. If you’re not good at this give it to a friend who has these skills. Read it out aloud to yourself or get someone else to read it to you. What sounds strange to you will also sound strange to your visitors.

7. Submit your article

First submit it to the most popular article directory…EzineArticles. Then submit it to other article directories. A Google search will produce hundreds of them.


The key to successful article writing and marketing is to do it consistently whether it is once a week, three times a week or every day. As you increase the volume of articles written and submitted, the volume of traffic to your web site will also increase.\
