Article PR - You Need It

Posted on 7.02.2006
You know you need backlinks for good SEO. And you know you need the attention and respect of others to move your business forward in a positive direction, right? Of course you do, but article marketing and generating the elusive "PR" we as website owners, marketers and webmasters are in pursuit of is challenging and, yes, time consuming to say the least. But it's important so let's put down our sad little violins and get to submitting articles where it really matters.

In order for Article PR to be effective you must understand not only the process of writing and submitting articles, but the best practice of it as well.

Of course you should have a list of influential bloggers (which you could find at Technorati or even Google Blogsearch), but there are also lots of sites that accept articles from those seeking greater attention for their products and services. Often when your submitted article is published, you get a link to your site and (said with fingers crossed) a boost to your ranking. The reason the practice of submitting articles to directories is so popular is because there is an opportunity to include your link. In the best case scenario, the site being submitted to will let you use anchor text when linking to your site.

Here are a few sites which, in addition to including a resource box, let writers embed links with anchor text within the content  submitted:

Go Articles, Article Alley, Article Depot, Article Codex, Article Connection, Article Devil, Easy Articles, Featured Articles, Gemini Publishing, Health Writing, Kno What, One Articles, Uniterra Article Archive, Womens Articles

If you have another article directory we've missed please let us know!
