How to Use Articles for Link Building

link popularity

If you want to generate traffic to your website from the search engines you need optimize your web pages and build links to them. The more incoming links you get to those pages the higher your rankings will be. Many site owners fail to put a regular link building plan in place. They may have achieved good rankings initially with a a few incoming links however over time their rankings dropped (and so did their traffic) as competing websites outranked them.

One of the easiest and fastest ways to build links is through writing and publishing articles. The more articles you write and distribute over the Net the more links you’ll acquire.

7 ways to use articles for link building

1. Create unique content

Every person has their own unique style of writing that will appeal to a segment of readers. Ezine publishers and site owners are constantly looking for unique content to place in their ezines or on their websites. Submit your content to the top article directories to make it easy for publishers and site owners to find your articles. For example one article could potentially generate 100s of links to your website if it was used in an ezine of 10,000 subscribers or bookmarked by readers using bookmarking sites such as stumbleupon, digg, delicious, etc.

2. Include links in the article resource box

Most article directories allow 2 links in the resource box at the end of the article. One should be anchor text (hyperlinked text), the other your full website address. The anchor text should contain your main keyword as search engines give more weight to links that include keywords related to your site. The full URL should also be included in case someone copies and pastes your article (from the article directory) into their ezine or web page. The anchor text won’t appear but the full URL will remain intact.

3. Practice Internal linking

When publishing the article on your website or blog find related articles or blog posts (within your site) then link them to your article using the article title as your anchor text. The best internal links are ones contained within your content (where the surrounding content relates to the link) .

4. Make it easy for others to link to your article

Encourage your readers to refer your article to others by providing the html code (containing your link text) to place in their web pages. You also use javascript code to syndicate your articles. Include bookmarking icons at the end of your article for easy bookmarking.

5. Create an RSS feed

RSS (really simple syndication) allows your readers to easily be notified when a new article is added to your website. If your blog or website was built with WordPress software then it already has RSS built into it. Every time you add new content the software automatically alerts the search engines.

6. Optimize your content

Search engines spider and index your content based on keywords. Before writing each article research the keywords people use to find information on the Web. Make sure these keywords receive a good number of searches each month. Weave these keywords into the title, article body and resource box of each article. This increases the chances of your article receiving good rankings in the search engines.

7. Write guest articles

Blog owners are constantly looking for new content to maintain their visitor’s interest. Offer a to be a guest writer for a blog that compliments your own site and receives lots of traffic. This will generate powerful incoming links to your own website.

If you implement these link building strategies on a regular basis you’ll see your rankings and traffic steadily increase.

Article Rewriting – How to Rewrite Articles to Multiply Your Traffic

article rewriting
A well written article will attract more visitors than one hastily put together. It will also create a viral effect because good content gets quickly distributed around the Net by people publishing, linking and/or bookmarking it.

Read these 2 articles for the top reasons and ways to rewrite articles:

Top 5 Reasons to Rewrite Your Article
Top 3 Ways to Rewrite Your Article

How not to rewrite articles

Don’t just create a copy of the original article by changing the words or sentences around. It will read the same. For the content to be unique it needs to stand on its own. The original and rewritten content should not be recognized as the same article.

How to rewrite an article

1. Define your purpose

Determine what your article will be used for and how many versions you need. For example publish the original article to your web site, blog or article directory. The purpose of your second (rewritten) article is to use it as a guest article on a high traffic web site such as an online magazine, ezine or blog.

2. Write the original article

Set a time limit and just start writing content so your creative ideas freely flow from your mind. Don’t worry about correcting the spelling or grammar mistakes until you’ve completed the article.

After letting it sit for a few hours or a day review what you’ve written before to make sure it is free of errors and ready for publication.

3. Rewrite the original article

  • Create a different title.
  • Rewrite each paragraph by using alternative keywords and altering the sentence structure.
  • Use the thesaurus to find synonyms for words you used in the first article.
  • Redo the resource box by changing the call to action and using different anchor text.

4. Create a fresh article

Sometimes it’s hard to rewrite the same article and not duplicate what you’ve already written. To avoid this write a new article from a different perspective using alternative keywords. They will spark new ideas.

Other ideas may include:

News articles captivate readers by beginning with a story. Do the same for your article but include some points they can act upon.

People love checklists because they’re easy to read. Create a checklist of points from your original article.

Frequently asked questions
Visit forums and blogs to read what questions are being the asked the most in your niche then answer them in your content.

Link your original article to the rewritten one(s) to improve its link popularity and search engine rankings. Don’t link to an article that says the same thing in different words. It will upset your readers. Instead only link to unique articles that compliment each other.

Improve Link Popularity by Writing Articles

link popularityLink popularity refers to the quantity and quality of other web sites that link to your site. As your link popularity increases so do your search engine rankings. One of fastest and easiest methods for getting one-way inbound links is by writing and publishing articles.

Types of links

Reciprocal linking

This is where you exchange links between 2 web sites. You should only exchange links with sites that compliment or relate to your own web site. This is a time consuming process. Most requests will go unanswered as site owners receive multiple requests from unrelated sites. They may consider it spam and delete the emails.

To receive a reciprocal link, offer a well written article or short report on the topic of the web site you want to exchange links with. Include your web site link in the resource box at the end of the article. Offering something of great value will make you stand out from all the other link exchange requests.

2. One-way linking

This type of linking doesn’t require reciprocal linking because it only goes “one-way.” It’s also called an “incoming link” or inbound link.”

Writing and submitting articles to article directories is a great method for acquiring one-way links because you don’t have to ask for a link exchange. Article directories allow you to insert one or two links in your resource box.

Since article directories get indexed by the search engines every day, your article will almost immediately appear in the search engines. Depending on how competitive your topic is, your article may enjoy good rankings.

Ezine publishers, web site owners select articles from article directories to publish in their newsletters, websites or blogs. These are all one-way links. If these properties receive lots of traffic, the link popularity and traffic generation to your own site will increase dramatically.

3. Internal linking

This refers to linking to other pages within your own web site. Often the home page receives the most links whereas internal pages receive none or a few.

To improve the link popularity of your web site link your internal pages to related pages within the same web site with anchor text (hyperlinked text).

Encourage other web site owners to link to your internal pages by finding the page that relates or compliments their own content. Strengthening your internal pages by getting inbound links will boost your overall site rankings and traffic.
