The Power of Article Marketing


B2B Demand Generation | The Power of Article Marketing

Reviewing Google Webmaster for Find New Customers, I see that we now have 246,843 Inbound Linksinbound links to our website.Almost 1/4 million inbound links is impressive for a small company especially. According to Google Analytics, the #1 source of traffic for Find New Customers is organic search.

Inbound links are historically the most important element in getting ranked for your keywords. This article on the Role of Inbound Links explains it well. Problem is, it’s really hard work.

If you were to ask people to link to you, getting a 1/4 million inbound links would take years. But we did it in about 18 months.

How did we do it so quickly? Rather than begging for links, we use a different approach. We use article marketing.

Of all those links, over 95% came from a single site, www.evancarmichael.com. That is the site where we post our articles. I am now a Platinum author there.

Why did we choose that site? We used Wordtrackers LinkBuilder tool and it kept popping up as a highly regarded site. Site credibility is a major factor in rank.

Do you write a blog? If so, also post your articles to an article site like Evan Carmichael. You’ll quickly improve your search ranking. But keep in mind that there is no magic. You have to keep doing it several times a week for months and months to see results.

What do you think? Have you tried article marketing? How has it worked for you?
