Article marketing is a great way to receive highly targeted visitors . This article will give you some tips on how to best use article directories to get quality traffic to your website . But more on that later. Lets get right to the article marketing tips and tricks. In this post I will list out 8 secrets that, done correctly, will help you dominate the article directories (mainly ezinearticles.com) and get lots of traffic .

1. Great Copy – Of course you need to have something relevant and intriguing to say . Write from the heart but do not ramble. Get to the point fast and offer value. Sometimes you want to offer information you would normally charge for.  

2. Organize Your Article – The way you layout your article is actually very important . You want to make your article readable by the skimmers. Most people have short attention spans even when they want to learn something. Make your article stick out. Use bullet points and start new lines for important sections, words, or sentences.  

3. Wondering Eyes – Most of us are easily distracted. Use this to your advantage . Use Bold, italic, and if allowed small pictures or emotion icons. Highlight words through out your article that tell their own story. Your skimmers will see these words and get the picture. Your main goal is to get the reader all the way through the article to your resource box and clicking your links to find out more.  

4. Keywords Are Key – Do a little keyword research . Write your article using the keywords you find and sprinkle them through out your article. Place the keyword in the title, body, and resource box. Definitely use the keyword as an anchor text in your resource box.  

5. Internal Back linking – The large article directories have hundreds of thousands and some millions of articles in their database. This creates a whole lot of back link opportunity for you. Your goal is to get into the categories that will deliver the most targeted traffic to your article then your website. Most of the large article directories have categories such as most viewed articles and most published. These tends to be difficult to get into but the pay off is sweet. More on that later.  

6. Generate Article Traffic – To find yourself into thos special categories you need views . This is where your backlinking skills come into play . But I would first start by telling all of your friends that you have a great article that they should go and view. Social bookmark it, twitter it, facebook it, do whatever you can to promote it. You can republish your article where ever you would like to get some back links generated for your article. You want to pick places where you can generate views of your article. One great place is social networking sites. Especially ones that allow you to have a blog.

7. Faster Approval – I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Take Action” . But taking action sometimes takes time. Well we all know time is money. So to help get that money you will want to take advantage of the faster approval methods these article directories give you. Most of these options cost money. If you can afford it, do it. Its worth it. The faster you are approved the faster you can get working on your traffic and the faster you get paid.

8. Promotion – I mentioned a little bit about promotions earlier. But let me be more specific . I mentioned use social networking sites to republish your approved article but what social networking sites you ask. Here’s a great one to start out with. Start with Ning.com. If you haven’t heard of ning.com get familiar. This site allows individuals like you and I to create our own social networking site. Ning is a great resource to place your republished articles. Not only will you get a backlink to your original article you will be grabbing the attention of the members of the ning site you just joined. It’s a win win.

Another promotion method is using social bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious, Mixx, Reddit, and others. These sites are great because people search these sites looking for new information. Check out these sites and do a google search for social bookmarking site to find more where you can post your article to.

Remember to do these 8 steps because article marketing is a great way to get highly targeted traffic.
