It’s not enough to only sit around and expect that your articles will bring you an honest amount of traffic right after you submitted your articles for distribution.
Might also consider some factors… Is your article worthy to be reprinted? Do the content and title ring a bell to most webmasters and publishers?
Questions like these are just a few of the various factors that would greatly affect your article distribution results.
Some basic factors are:
1. Topic of your article…
Submitting your article to article sites and article announcement groups totally depends on the subject of your article, not all of those sites and groups accept general topic articles. Some groups (aprox. 30%) are niche or content-specific, meaning they only accept articles under specific topics, e.g. aainet group – accepts only internet related articles…
2. Your content
Submission sites are just tools, never consider them as an assurance that when your articles are distributed they’re bound to bring you back big results. Article announcement groups and sites are just there to display your articles for readers (Who could be interested together with your articles) and for publishers to select your articles and reprint them in their site or ezine. Thus, getting greater results totally depends on your article, how interesting it’s to readers and the way it gets the publisher’s attention/interest to form them publish it.
My advice, don’t just write a piece of writing for the sake of distributing it and hoping to urge traffic out of it. Write a piece of writing which will surely offer you results after using the article distribution services and sites as tools for distribution.
