    Here's some answers to your questions about article marketing.

    1)does it help your seo strategy

    Yes it does help..A lot!

    2) is it good to build traffic

    Absolutely, especially if you are having your blogged automatically "pinged" each time you post (to your blog)

    3)do you write your own articles if not what do you do?

    I never (well, almost never) write my own articles. There are enough free articles (or PLR articles) available that you just need to re-write.

    4)is there such a software where i can input an article and it rewrites it for me?

    Absolutely! Do a search on Google for "free article converter" (be sure to use the quotes).

    5)what program do you use to post your articles?

    The greatest tool in the world comes with a browser called SeaMonkey. Once you have it installed, instead of using Internet Explorer you can get a free Add on for it called ScribeFire that will automatically open up a post editor that will upload your posts and/or pages to your blog.

    You can look at my blog http://hijinxmarketing.com/jayjenkins

    where I posted an article on (yep) article marketing.

    Have fun!

    Great reply, Azhumbird. Lemme take a crack at this one.

    By "article marketing" I'm assuming you're talking about submissions to goarticles, ezinarticles, articlecity and the like... not blog and ping, so here ya go:

    1) Hell yeah
    2) Traffic? Maybe. SERPS? Definitely.
    3) Yes, and I outsource. Post a help wanted ad in a few of the local Job Listings on Craig's list for copywriters. The absolute worst possible decision a non-native English speaker could make is to try to write their own content.
    4) Sure, but I recommend Content Composer, which ain't exactly what you're talking about. The second worst possible decision for an article marketer is to use a one-click content spinner or Markov engine to rewrite someone else's work. I have yet to find one that doesn't read like crap.
    5) I've tried Article Post Robot and Article Submitter. In my experience, though, it's best NOT to post the exact same article in 100 different articles directories. You're better off using a auto submitter just to get registered, then manually submit slightly different versions of your articles to 10-20 directories.

    Hope this helps ;)

    BUM marketing sure could drive traffic to you, yet it need your consistent posting articles to some directories and you should have patience to see the result, so it's not your only way to build traffic.

    From experience I don't like article re-writers because they are either very difficult to use or is totally useless. To me article re-writers only produces articles that people don't find nice to read. If you are planning on submitting the articles to article directories I think it would be better to re-write it yourself. I know that it is a hassle but it is well worth the effort.

    You can have your articles automatically sent to all of the major social networks if you use OnlyWire (http://onlywire.com). The first time you log in there is a whole slew of the social bookmarking sites listed. It's tedious, but you have to join each one, then put your user name and password in each one and install the toolbar in your browser. After that, each time you post an article just click on the icon for OnlyWire and it gets submitted by their program.

    nice, thanks! I was using hxxp://www.bookall.de/ to do mine mostly. It makes you do them all 1 by 1 though, but has all available for you to just click the buttons.

    hey gooser898,

    I was looking for Dragons 9.5 also. Where did you find the download?
    Can you share? Thanks.

    And for article marketing question... here are some of my experiences:

    I've been submitting articles using Ar*ticleSubmit*ter by imw*ishlist. Even though it is semi automatic and it is very tidious as hell. I have yet to find an article submitter that works automatically.

    There is a thread here for product called Ul*traArticleBla*ster which supposedly blasts your article to 3000 or so of ezine publishers. I have yet to try it, but it seems like a powerful piece of software. You create 3 versions of the same article and the software re-arranges each paragraph to make like 1,500 different unique versions before it submits it. User interface sucks and you have no idea where your articles are submitted to. You might want to give it a try. Search for it on this forum.

    Another similar online product I've tried is Uni*queArti*cleWi*zard.com. It's a membership site that works similar to the product I described above. You create 3 different versions of the same article and they submit them to like, 10,000 different article directories and ezine publishers. You don't have to register to any of the directories, they do it all for you(supposedly).

    The membership costs $69 per month, but they have a special discount going on for $47 per month. I had some success with it and my website showed like 60 or so backlinks in about 10 days, all with Yahoo, MSN and Alta Vista, but not on Google(I think my domain is black flagged by Google). :)

    Can somebody tell me how I can check if my domain is black flagged by Google?

    Anyway, if you are serious about doing an article marketing, you need something like Uni*queArti*cleWi*zard, simply because the article/s you submit will be somewhat unique to the search engines. Only thing is you have to write 3 different versions yourself. The online dashboard allows you to change each paragraph which make it easily for you to rewrite.

    And if you are looking for a rewriting software, non of them are worth wasting your time over. They are all CRAP with capital letters! I have yet to find anything that is worthwhile using. But there are two software I can recommend you try.

    One is WordFlood. It's available on this forum somewhere. It is a rewriting tool but you do the rewriting. You choose which word or paragraph you want to change. WordFlood make it easy for you to do that with massive built-in thesaurus. Give it a try.

    Another software I recommend is Sty*lewriter. It is an expensive software used by book publishers to check for grammer and writing style. It is a great little tool that works with MS Word. It cuts out all the fluff words and adjectives that are not necessary to make your point. They use to have 30 trial demo at their website, but it is no longer there. Maybe someone on this forum can find it and upload it here. :) You can check out their website for more info. hxxp://www.sty*lewriter-usa.com/

    Nothing is automatic when it comes to writing articles, you have to put some effort into creating the articles unique yourself or outsource them.

    I hope this helps and good luck with your efforts.

    i was just beginning to start with article marketing and i am going to use article submitter platinum which will submit your articles automatically...

    one question.. Do you guys pose your articles on your own website as well? Does this help with SEO?

    Use unique article wizard it really rocks it's a membership site but gets results. You can get it at http;//www.uniquearticlewizard.com (not a aff link).

    Here are just a few stats the figures are number of links in yahoo as that is easier to automate and check. But it gives you an idea.

    Domain=http://www.takestressaway.com


    Take Stress Away 2007-11-27 Fighting back when stress takes hold of your life week: 22 stats: = 480

    Domain = http://www.dreambodynow.com

    Dreambody Now 2008-01-11 Will Obesity Destroy A Nation, Is History Being Repeated week: 16 stats: = 390


    You have to keep going these are just with one submission some figures were much higher but these are representative. It takes a few months not by any means instant.

    You can also use James Braush's Artemis Pro that is the same sort of tool.

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    I have a question.

    After submitting to some of the major article sites and accepted, Do you find your article and create backlinks to it to help it rank in serps or strengthen the pr the link in the article to your site.

    Would it help to submit the link of your article to directories, bookmark it and such, or will it not rank because of the site it is on? That is if you have software to do these things in a few minutes. My thinking is the article sites should be able to handle the flood of backlinks without allerting big G

    Thanks

    I heard that social bookmarking sites won't take urls from ezinearticles . Does anyone know if that is true and if generally the urls from goarticles, buzzle etc aren't accepted on sb sites? Same question about pingo matic for these.
