new "killer" traffic booster software, or trying out the
latest scheme to fool Google, Yahoo, or MSN.
Nope. This stuff is 100% legit, above-board, and has already worked
Let me give you a quick example. Recently I created a little "test"
The search engines didn't know about it. It had no incoming links.
No traffic. No SE rankings...ZIP!
Fast forward 7 days... My website was indexed by Google, Yahoo
and MSN, it got well over 200 incoming links and started to generate
traffic... shortly thereafter, Google granted my site a Page Rank
Again, this did not cost a penny, just a few hours of my time.
I created a play-by-play video that shows the website and how I
did it (see the weblink below).

this same strategy. He now has #1-#8 rankings on all the major search
engines. You can listen to him explain how de did it during a recent

Bottom line. You need to start creating and submitting articles
to get all the benefits I just outlined above.
In fact, Google is practically telling you to do so!
But, where do you start? Where should you submit your articles?
Here's a blueprint that outlines the 7 keys to writing successful
Follow these 7 keys and you are guaranteed to get more traffic,
more incoming links and higher search engine rankings and page rank,
by simply distributing your articles across the Internet.
Let's get started.
Key #1: Choose a HOT Topic
You'll need to do a little research on this one. If you are already
familiar with the target market for your article, this should come
easy. Research, spy, observe. Do whatever it takes to understand
your target market. What issues are hot? What topics currently appear
within top ezines, messageboards, ebooks? What keywords are they
using to search online?
It's also a good idea to frequently visit article directories and
content sites. These sites contain current articles on a variety
of popular topics. Often, you can view the most popular article
topics (or clicks) as well.
Here's a short list of article directories:
Key #2: Choose a "Magnetic" Title
Magnetic title? That's right. Your article title is your headline.
If it doesn't pull the reader into the article, nothing will. Just
think ... what if I called this article:
"Get More Traffic In The Search Engines", "Easy
Search Engine Tips", or "Free Traffic Generation Strategies".
BLAH! See what I mean? These don't pack much "punch",
Your title is just like a classified ad. Look at it this way. If
your article title is crowded on a webpage with 100 others, what
will make it jump off the page?
Key #3: Use The AIDA Principle
Attention Interest Desire Action
This universal formula applies to your articles as well. Once you've
enticed your reader to read your article (via a great title), you
need to keep them reading.
The first paragraph of your article is critical. If it's dull,
boring and lifeless, your reader will surely bail out. You must
keep their interest right from the start. Try using short paragraphs,
sentences and words. This will keep the tempo upbeat and make your
article much easier to read (or skim, as most do online).
Key #4: Create Several Sub-Headings
To better organize your thoughts, divide your article into sub-headings.
At times, writing a 500-700 word article can seem insurmountable.
Sub-headings make things easier. Instead of tackling the entire
article at once, try writing one paragraph at a time.
Key #5: "Close The Sale" With A Resource Box
One of the worst things you can do is to leave your reader hanging.
They've just read your great article, now what? A resource box appears
at the very end of your article. It's the last line that your reader
sees. It's your chance to set the next step.
Make sure that your resource box is compelling. Make the reader
jump over to your website, sign up for your ezine, download your
latest ebook, claim their free gift -- get creative!
Also, the resource box allows you to include a direct link back
to your website. Sit back and watch your link popularity soar!
Key #6: Poofread Your Work
Did you catch that? It should have read, "Proofread".
Nothing hollers out amateur, newbie, or just plain unprofessional
than an article filled with typos and bad grammar. If you don't
have an English major in the family, hire a proofreader. Their rates
are reasonable and they can save you from damaging your reputation
Key #7 - Promote, promote, promote
Let's make one thing clear. Without key #7, keys 1-6 are a waste
of time. Bottom line, no one will read your article if you keep
it stored on a floppy disk in your desk.
You've got to promote it!
How can you promote your article? There are close to 90 article
directories, article banks, free content sites, article announcement
lists, and article syndication services out there. And the best
part is ... 95% of them are FREE!
Plus, there are thousands of ezines, websites and blogs that are
looking for article submissions. Develop a list of contacts in your
target market. Next, e-mail each ezine publisher, blog owner, or
webmaster a copy of your latest article. There are countless stories
of individuals who have succeeded using this exact same approach.
Wouldn't you like to get your next article picked up by an ezine
with 32,000 subscribers or have 8,000 websites visitors view your
Now go on, and get writing!
