thanks for your feedback. my question was not so much for 1 article. it was for a site in which i need to build many many articles. and it's not so much about developing ideas....it's more about presenting those ideas....
let's take a different example. let's say i'm promoting a great ebook on how to keep aphids off of roses. my keyword list is all built around "getting rid of rose aphids" (and numerous variations).
there are 3 ways to do it:
1. spray the leaves with milk
2. use Acme pesticide (which i don't really wanna promote since i'm trying to sell the ebook)
3. buy this book (the ebook that i'm promoting)
i can easily build 5-10 articles around this topic -
-why aphids love roses and how to stop them
-how NOT to get rid of aphids
-when is the best time to get rid of aphids
-when is too late to get of aphids
-are you making this mistake when getting of aphids
-why most aphid prevention techniques don't work
each of these articles has some solid content, good keyword density, and a call to action with some soft/hard ebook promotion. but to rank well for all of the keyword variations in my niche, i may have to build 30-50 articles. each one in isolation has value to the reader - but taken altogether they become super super redundant. basically, there is only so much mileage i can get out of aphid prevention unless i really start to dig into some of the secret techniques outlined in this ebook i'm promoting.
if i distribute my articles on other sites - this redundancy is no prob. i can be as repetitive as necessary since each article lives in isolation. but to repost essentially the same ideas (with very limited tips) on my own site seems like a short-lived strategy.
i hope this makes it a little clearer....
cheers again for your help. talk soon,
