Action Steps EXPLAINED

1. Setup Accounts on these Article Directories

3a. Post the Articles

  • Week 1: post 1 article to EzineArticles.com
  • Week 2: post 1 article to GoArticles.com
  • Week 3: post 1 article to ArticleDashboard.com
  • Week 4: post 1 article to EzineArticles.com
  • Week 5: post 1 article to GoArticles.com
  • Week 6: post 1 article to ArticleDashboard.com
  • The standard article review turnaround is 7-14 days. This is from the time you submit the article to the time the editors of each article directory approve your article.

3b. Add Links to Each Article

  • Don’t forget: The whole reason you’re posting these articles are for the backlinks (and a little bit of traffic) so don’t forget to include links to your website in each article you submit.
  • Each article directory allows you to include 2 links back to your website in the “Author Bio” section. Have 1 link point to the homepage, and 1 link point to an interior page of your website.
  • The anchor text for each link should be one of your keywords.
  • You may be wondering, ‘Why not just post all my articles to one site?’ Because the key to a good link-building campaign is diversity of links. Having links from these three different sites helps to accomplish link diversity.

4. Apply Content Promotion Strategies

Extra Credit

Take it up a notch and have 12 articles written for you (i.e. outsource it), instead of writing six for yourself. Rotate the postings of the articles between the three article directories.

Awesome Tools

For those of you who are extremely short on time or are looking to do some more outsourcing, check out DistributeYourArticles.com. The service is a little pricey but allows articles to be scheduled in advance and have them reviewed by their editors prior to submission.
