You know, your experience has given me an idea: instead of writing quality articles to be distributed on article directories where people may or may not read it, why not instead place it on blogs related to your niche where people will read it
, and you get the added benefit of the link?
I have never tried guest blogging, but I am thinking about using it as part of my online marketing strategy.

I agree Mark, some niches are more appropriate to some article directories than others.
One way to measure this is to look at the total amount of articles there are in your niche or category
- if it is a large amount, then it could be worthy of publishing your content there for exposure.

Yes, YouTube is probably to video marketing what Ezine Articles was to article marketing back in the day.
Not that many marketers are using video, and even the ones that do aren't using high grade professional videos - which means there is still plenty of room for us to build our presence and gain an audience for our brand or niche.

I agree Bernard. No offence to the Affilorama staff and Mark Ling of course, but there are better, faster places to learn the latest SEO tactics to use for higher SERP rankings.
One source I learn from is Alexander Becker at Source Wave
. He is all about speed and efficiency, and the best part is that he gives 95% of what he knows for free.
I've even bought some of his products, and they aren't that different from the free information, so you can definitely get a benefit from http://source-wave.com

Hm, there is one SEO strategy that has been around since 2007 and is still not used by many marketers, at all: website silo architecture.
In fact, this strategy will be more and more important as we move along into the future of "semantic web". Here is an explanation on website silo architecture from a renowned expert - but let me warn you that it is a highly technical read: http://www.bruceclay.com/jp/seo/silo.htm
