Find out how writing articles can help your internet business

By writing quality articles and submitting them to content directories such as wikinut, hubpages, knol, ehow, squidoo and ezintarticles, you will find many benefits. There are 100's of article directories, a list of 50 of the best ones can be found here:

This website also gives you the Alexa rating and Google pagerank of each directory, it also tells you if they are DoFollow or NoFollow directories. Some of them are for content of a specific genre, but there are directories here to cover every niche. Choose the right ones for what you are writing about for the best outcome.

Benefits of submitting to article directories:

By placing your good quality articles in lots of article directories, it will build traffic to your website. By putting your website url's in to your article, people that have bothered to read it because they are interested in your subject will possibly click your link and visit your website. They will be reading your article because they have an interest in what you have to say about a certain subject, so they a re already predisposed as active website traffic. Your article gives them knowledge about something they want to learn more about, so following your url will give them more information.

As your website url will be in your article, probably more than once, these will count as backlinks. The benefit of backlinks is mostly for the search engine bots that rank your webpage, The more quality backlinks a website has, the more value it has and will rank higher in search results.

If you write most of your articles about one particular subject or niche, you will become known as an authority. Being an authority will build trust and a growing number of committed followers. If someone reads your article and likes it, the chances are they will want to read more. Being of excellent quality, your words will be trusted as someone how knows what they are talking about. It's usually information that readers are seeking rather than just entertaining. Offering them the information that they seek, well written and laid out, will satisfy their needs for knowledge and your needs for traffic.

Writing articles takes skill and knowledge. It's best to chose to write about something that you already have quite extensive knowledge about. However saying this, you will probably need to do a little web research about your particular subject at some points. Your information should be up to date and have accurate references. By spending time reading up on these topics, you will automatically be increasing your own knowledge, making you increasingly authoritative about the niche.

Important point about article content

Your article should be 100% original, plagiarism free and copyscape pass. Spun articles or ones that you can buy in bulk (that the world and it's wife also have), are of little value. They are not considered as high quality and will not do their intended job with any positive results.

As you can see writing and submitting high quality articles is highly beneficial to any internet marketing campaign. It can be time consuming, but the positive outcome is well worth the effort. Try it for yourself and find out. Enjoy your writing.
