    I'm looking for some advice with my article marketing efforts.

    This is what I currently do:

    1) Create a unique article and post it on my site. Submit the URL to pingler.com.

    2) Spin the article in "The Best Spinner" to the point where almost every word or phase has 3-5 variations. This results in an overall spin value of 50-60% according to "The Best Spinner". This takes like 45 mins to do, but you can easily generate a few thousand unique articles from the original.

    3) Submit one of the spun versions to EzineArticles.com and have it link to my homepage and one other random page on my site (not the original article that it was spun from, I've tried linking to the original article previously but EZA refuses it on the grounds of duplicate content despite the fact it looks very different). So far I've had 3 articles approved by EZA when doing this.

    4) Copy the syntax'd article into notepad and change the pipe (|) delimiter to tidle (~) and put 3 hyperlinks within the content (1 to my homepage, 1 to the original article page, and one to a random page on the site). Submit the article to ArticleRanks.com. Articles I've submitted through this network seem to get picked up by about 10 sites/week, and they do show up in Google Webmaster Tools. I'm not paying the monthly fee, I have like 2000 credits in their system because I put up a few blogs with PR into their network a few months ago and forgot about them, so the credits just racked up.

    5) Copy the spyntax'd article and distribute it via SpinDistribute.com. It costs $4 per article, but they blast a unique spun article out to about 600 article directories (which you get a list of in their reports), and they also claim to distribute it to over 400 blogs in their own private network. I've only done one article so far so I'm not entirely sure how effective this network is. It seems decent, but it's reporting is kinda weak and I haven't heard much about the results from these guys yet.

    6) Distribute the article via SEOLinkVine. I've only sent in one article so far because they initially allowed you to buy credits to distribute articles as an alternative to paying the monthly fee, which they have now cancelled. The 1 article I have in their network so far has been picked up by 85 sites so far, and it seems to get 5 or so more sites listing it every week. I know they've re-opened the monthly package, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.


    With that all said, this is what I'm trying to learn:

    Other Networks?

    Where else can I distribute my spun articles to? I'd really prefer to join a network that will let me just input a spyntax'd article and let them generate unique versions and distribute them (ArticleRanks and SpinDistribute both do this).

    I would really prefer to use a network/system that will let me pay on a per-article basis rather than a monthly fee. I'm looking at iSnare right now, which is $2/article but it doesn't take spyntax'd content :(

    Other Tools?

    What other tools should I consider looking at to enhance my article marketing? I've been reading a lot of threads here about all the tools you guys use, but I'm on a tight budget (can spend like $100 for now).

    The only tool I have right now is "The Best Spinner", and I absolutely love it. I'm willing to invest in something new, but I'm not sure what would be best to get next for my article marketing activities.


    Thanks a lot :)

    hi,

    for 3.) EZA has a nice plugin and allows to post the original article from your blog to EZA. So no need to rewrite it.

    The best spinner has alternate syntax/export options, so no need to find and replace in notepad.

    If you are doing that much spinning and spintax, then using Unique Article Wizard service would bring you the most bang for the buck.

    If you are lazy like me, submitting one alternate version of your article to isnare is fairly powerful too and should bring in a few hundred backlinks.

    I think a lot of the rest of what you are doing is more work than what its worth.

    ? Whenever I've tried to post an article on EZA that is already existing somewhere else it gets denied because of duplicate content - they only allow unique content.

    Where is this set in Best Spinner? I must have overlooked that. Thanks :)

    The reason I do that is so that each backlink is unique, which is a factor in ranking to some extent.

    First, to get approved by EZA you need at least 80 - 90% uniqueness to get your articles approved. You have the problems because your articles have only 50 - 60% after spinning.

    Second, there's an easier way. Submit your unique article to EZA first. After it got approved you either can spin it and place this version on your site, or you can even use the unique article on your site without any penalties.

    I 100% agree with Peter here. Here's my system. .

    Write 1 unique article.
    Rewrite each sentence 2 times.

    Which gives me 3 unique articles. I submit 1 to ezine, one to goarticles and the other to hubages or squidoo.

    Then, I spin them all together with thebestspinner and use them in UAW. These usually are 80-95% unique.

    Then, i change the export format, and submit to AMA, or submityouraritcles etc. . Neither of those are by the piece. they are both monthly, but for as many articles as I submit, it's worth it.

    I often stick one of the spins on my own blog, and some on my own blog network, and submit spins to web 2.0 properties using senuke.

    I try to track the articles with google alerts, hoping someone picks the article up and posts it on a quality blog. If they do, I drop them a little email and offer them unique content.

    @OP - you were asking what else you could do on a limited budget.

    I would add the use of MAS - Magic Article Submitter - it cost one time $55 and submit to hundreds of ArticleDashboard & ArticleFriendly directories.

    In addition, I recommend FTS - Free Traffic System, the free membership that will spread each of your articles to up to 30 blogs and will cost you $0
