    Article marketing, in my opinion, is one method that you cant "blackhat" it. Well you can by using software and things.....but you need to put in alot of work before you see returns.

    So if you submit like 20 articles today and tommorow you see 0sales and you give up. Then you have just wasted your time.

    You need to submit like 5 or however many each day and build up. then after a month, they should be ranked and stuff then you should see traffic and even sales.....

    ...but also dont forget, you need to make sure they are written well, have good keywords, are informative etc etc.......

    so yeh, what else can i say?

    Oh, then maybe bookmark and linkwheel the best or all articles?

    You should not expect to submit articles to article directory and think of getting instant traffic. The basic idea is to get a good PR link to your site which will help you rank for your keyword in search engines. The best is get some good pr article directories, submit your spun content, once posted or approved ping your article in the article directory.

    than use other softwares...or do it manually. Look around BHW forum and you will learn, think out of the box...

    Article Post Robot is the only submission software I've ever gotten decent results with, and even then the results were "just decent", not great. Every other submission software I've used or tried was just a complete failure in my opinion as more submission attempts failed than succeeded, which to me means the time spent using them was wasted.

    My advice is use manual submissions. Either do it yourself, or outsource it to someone from DP for cheap. I've found people there who'll do it for $0.20 per submission. I give them my list of directories that I want submitted to (don't let them pick where to submit at), and use a free email addy (like gmail or yahoo) so that I get conformations for every submission.

    But even if you just do it yourself, the fact is with manual submissions you know each one was actually submitted unlike softwares that can run for an hour and because of some glitch or mistake (like punctuation in your article title) none of the submissions go through, meaning you just wasted an hour of time.

    Another option is using one of the article distribution services. ArticleTrader is a good one for the price, I've heard good things about some others too, but haven't tried them so can't say for sure how good they are.

    Hope some of this helps.

    Judging by your English literacy, I would say article writing is never going to be your most successful endeavor. Perhaps try something else.

    Hey, This is not my english. HaHa
    I hav ewritten 2 poem books, 2 other books and they are used for Doctorate thesis also. This is my forum language mam.

    So writing own content is better or duplicating content is better

    Which is time consuming and faster
    I think writing own is faster
    That is what I learnt from today

    Please suggest me more

    I don't use software, I use a service called ArticleMarketer.com to automate submissions.

    They don't automate the major directories though...so you gotta do those yourself.

    For my part I believe traditional article marketing will go away and it will continue to be more and more of a way to get backlinks to your site vs. direct traffic through the articles.

    1. spin articles-but make them readable
    2. dont submit 1000's at one go submit 10-20 a day and track process
    3. automate the process

    I was using article post robot but its a pain setting everything up hence need for automation and tracking. Once its done its worth the effort.

    Also

    submit to docstock and slide share +zimbio

    Article directories are dead.

    Submit your article to blog hosting sites where you can create your own URL and such. These are far more respected by Google.

    I have a list of 50 I currently post to with a PR of 5 or higher. First day I did it, I jumped 8 pages.

    Also, I am on a constant look for social networking sites that allow blogs. I just found that blackplanet.com has ******** blog hosting.

    Skip the spinning. Spinning is for pussies.

    Seriously. How many people do you consider will read the article and then visit your site.

    Article Marketing is only for the purpose of SEO, do not count too high on it.

    May be I am wrong but I have not come across any great material which shows huge traffic through article marketing.

    I have been following all the advise above and have been getting great results. Try out with some good quality articles that you have hand produced and then all your spun stuff la8tr. Keywords and proper grammar is a must as stated above.

    Article directories ARE read by humans who DO follow links........

    Read everything you can by this guy its all free and he is very different in his approach.

    No affiliation I just like his style.

    Also
    Dean Shainin
    Tim Gorman

    Then do some forensic investigations lol and look at what they are no longer doing........and what they are doing now.......

    Look at ANY Web 2 property that will allow you to upload text with html....lots of it ie so you have your own blog webspace etc.

    As for article submissions..see my sig.....yep its an aff link but the tool IS the best I have found and I have tried them all.

    Article marketing is basically greyhat........it takes time= if you wanna ramp it up you will have to outsource.

    But

    DO IT YOURSELF FIRST
    Find on REAL product on Amazon say some electronic device
    Throw a wordpress blog up with some amazon pages ( theres pluggins on bhw)-stick an article at the begining and YES adsense.
    Spin same plr articles BUT highlight a problem then offer a part solution hinting full solution is on your website
    Build a mini net of say 20 properties all funneling traffic to your sales page
    THEN
    Send out 10 articles a day (automated) to various article sites.

    When you figure out a step by step process outsource.

    Key issue is do something.monitor ,rinse and repeat.
