    There are lots of threads in relation to article marketing and BHW search didn't reveal anything in regards to eHow, associated content, about.com kind of sites.

    Are there any established authors?

    I was accepted into all of them on first try, but never write for them. I make much more on my own. I joined Demand Media just to see what keywords and topics they use. It was an eye opener.

    Just email ANY website and ask them if they would like to buy articles for their website. You will have more business than you can handle. Tell them you charge $25.00 for each 1200 word article that is fully SEO'd. note* I charge more than that, but you should begin with $25.00.

    The article had better be good and have some pizzazz. The $5.00 articles I have seen from here were not good at all. They were boring and had so many mistakes. One was about "Cherry Trees". My eyes glazed over on fourth sentence. It was 6th grade level at best.

    Keep the first paragraph under 50 words or the reader will leave. First paragraph has to have a "hook"...something to keep them interested.

    I'm established on some of these sites; no longer really active though. What do you need to know?

    Well the bottom line being that i'd like to write/publish or pay for someone to write and submit an article with a couple of backlinks from ehow and maybe about.com

    I'll try to check with ehow and see how it goes from there.

    Those greedy ********* over at DMS chose to turn all the links listed under references and resources on eHow articles into NoFollow links. So that might not be such a great idea.
