How To Generate Blog Traffic Using Articles

traffic, blog, blogging, articles, article

When it comes to getting traffic to your blog, enough is never enough. To put it in plain terms, the more traffic you get, the more money you make. But very often, getting a steady stream of traffic to your blog is a big problem for a lot of people.

There are tons of ways to get more traffic to your blogs, but one of the most effective is to write and publish articles related to your market.

1) How To Write Articles Easily

The trick to writing articles is to write them constantly, which really sounds easier than it is. If youre not outsourcing the articles, you need to write and publish at least one new articles every two weeks.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to look back at some of the posts youve written, and turn these into full-fledged articles. Generally, this would mean anywhere between 500 - 800 words. Anything shorter and youre likely to be rejected by most article directories. Anything longer is still ok, but would mean your readers get bored.

2) How To Publish Your Articles

Writing the article is really just one part of the traffic building campaign. You still need to publish your article to as many sites as possible.

Theres one service I currently use to publish and syndicate all my articles, which is MyArticleMarketer, available at . The service will syndicate all your articles to other article directories, and depending on your niche, this could mean 200 - 500 instant back links to your website. Some of your articles, if they are good, will end up in other peoples ezines and blogs.

With a free account at, you will only get distribution on the partial list, but an upgrade for a reasonable amount of money will give you unlimited article submissions to a list of more than 5,000 websites.

Each article you submit comes with reporting features so you can check exactly how many sites have published your articles.

All your articles will be examined and approved by a human editor. If you dont upgrade it takes up to two weeks, but upgrade authors can expect 24-hour approval of their articles. You can post as many articles as your want, based on your membership level.

3) Using Private Label Articles

Although there's been a lot of flak regarding using Private Label articles recently, the fact is that it is a useful back-up supply when you run out of ideas.

Private Label means that those article were initially ghost-written by someone else, and if you have the rights to use them you can pretty much do whatever you want with them. I recommend that you edit and reword not less than 60% of the PLR article so that it becomes unique content instead of the same article that is being used by the other marketers out there.

One word of caution: most article marketing services like will not accept PLR articles, so make sure you also change the title and reword most of the content. Other article sites like may even penalize you for using PLR articles, so use them wisely and at your own risk.
