Article writing: The best SEO method

The top website traffic generator is actually writing articles!

The idea behind writing articles to drive traffic is simple. You write as many quality and original articles as you can, and then submit each article to as many article directories as possible. These article directories in turn will drive traffic to your site.

Note that when writing your articles, you must deliver content that is helpful, informative and non-promotional in nature. Moreover, your article content must focus specifically on the service or industry your website is targeted for.

After you have written your articles, spell-check and proof read each and every one of them. Don’t waste your readers’ time with a hastily written or grammatically incorrect article. You will not get any website traffic with a poorly written article.

Now that you have your proof-read articles in hand, what next? Submit your articles to as many free-content, free-for-reprint article directories as will accept your articles. There are also some niche article directories that will cater to your industry and you should also submit your articles to these.

So where does the traffic come from? An article directory will typically allow you to place a link back to your website in a section about the author. Readers who like your article will be able to click on that link and visit your site.

Write one article and submit them to 1,000 article directories and you have obtained 1,000 inbound links free of charge. If several ezines pick up your article for redistribution, then your article can potentially reach hundreds of thousands of people via the ezines’ mailing lists. If you wrote 100 of such articles and repeated the process for each one of these, can you imagine the volume of web traffic you will be receiving?
