Article Directories- what's up with them. Are they yet useful in affiliate marketing? I have heard some rumors about them not being so useful anymore with getting links and traffic?
Do I understand right, that I get a benefit from adding an article to e.g. Ezinearticles only when someone else uses this article in his/her site with my bio or will simply adding my article to EZA with link in my bio gives me a backlink?
Also, I found out that the Pagerank of article directory doesn't mean much, since our articles doesn't go up into the main page of article directory, our articles may still be just pagerank 0, even if directory itself is high, let's say PR5 or higher. Although, Mark says in ABP that pagerank isn't that important anyways, and I agree with that, I wanted some ideas, how to use article directories at best? I have some good experience with a site like Triond.com, articles there gave me some direct traffic to my site, a dofollow backlink, plus- I earn some bucks out from Triond as well. What to think about that, which one would benefit me better, article directory like Ezinearticles or like Triond (idk, if it can be qualified as article directory at all).
- This is true, so focus on building as many links to your site using all available methods, if possible. As for the niche, I hope it's a niche that you're interested in because that takes the boredom out of the research. We tend to enjoy spending time reading about subjects/ topics we like. Makes research and writing about the subject less tiresome.After all, diversity of link types doesn't hurt.
- I know how this feels, truly. It can get to you, and what I did is to post a note next to my computer reminding me to stay positive, to think positive. It's difficult, especially when things around you are just too much, but it'll help. And things will get better. :)My personal life is complicated right now, that really bothers my concentration.
When it comes to building backlinks, I'm sure trying to split-test these two ways- "pure-breed" article directories and try to find some other 2.0-like article sites. After all, diversity of link types doesn't hurt.
What makes thing harder for me, is that I chose a niche I have to do good research to write something. And then more research to make this something good. At least I got three free reports from vendor, gonna read them through and pick out some ideas.
My personal life is complicated right now, that really bothers my concentration.. But every answer I get here helps me push forward, so thank you all.
However, here's an idea. Why not write articles for money? OK, not much money, but it builds up. If you go to somewhere like iWriter (www.iwriter.com) I happen to know that they are looking for writers at the moment. It's run by a guy called Jason Fladlein who started out doing the same thing.
