    Could someone improve my thought process for article marketing and my blog:

    1. Creat Article
    2. Post article on blog with 3 intra page links, 2 outbound links
    3. Re-post article on AC to recoup article development costs (E.g. $25/article) as "display only".
    4. Submit article to article directories (E.g. ezine, etc.)

    What else should I do to recoup my cost for creating the articles and then distributing them for high SE Visibility. Thanks for the help.

    1.why is it costing you 25 bucks an article? Thats pretty expensive
    2. If you repost the exact same article text on AC you will like get $3, and if it's exactly the same google will flag your site for duplicate content
    3. im not exactly sure about article directorys....but if your putting exactly the same content there wouldnt this be a duplicate penalty to? I think you need to do some rewriting at some point.

    p.s. im a newbie take what i say with a grain of salt

    My process is pretty simple but I'm not trying to recoup the cost of the article. I do my keyword research, select keywords that I can be competitive for.

    I then do a search of that keyword and take the top ranked article and have my writer rewrite it 3 times. We then put the 3 rewrites together in a seed format so that it can be spun. The we tag it to spin at the word and phrase level. This gets articles with a 50% - 55% uniqueness, we are looking to get it to 70%....more testing.

    This gets us multiple articles targeting the same keyword that we use in multiple ways, article directories, high PR blogs, our own blog network and a couple other networks.

    The content package can also be used to create descriptions for senuke or bookmarking videos and so.

    I'm not exactly sure what your real goal is with your article marketing, ours is to build backlinks. We do pick up some direct traffic from the places we submit to but thats not our primary. We also make a few pennies for some of the articles directories but not enough to justify the expense of creating the articles.

    When done properly and consistently one can own the top 15 out of 20 results for a given keyword. It may take a little time to get your money site on top but once its then you'll be hard to knock off the top of the hill.

    Article marketing is not the easiest of task but if done right can pay huge dividends in he long run.

    The jury is out on duplicate content as far as I can tell - if there was a penalty for duplicate content why would ezine publishers republish articles? Mass submitting articles is ok in my opinion. Although I always write one for Ezine articles and then another one that I mass submit.

    If you take the time to write 1 good article that you can 'spin' with your favourite software 25 times, everyday for 10 days, submit 1 everyday you can get 250 days worth of submissions! So day 1 write article A and spin so you have A1, A2...A25, submit A1. Day 2 write B1-B25 and submit B1, then on day 11 submit A2 and carry on and on...

    I'd also suggest creating blogger, blogspots, lenses, hubs, zimbios and getting backlinks to your ezine articles to get them up in the SERPs and keep delivering traffic. It's a lot of work for sure but if you are trying to break into competitive niches you have to do it. Whit hat is hard work - but once you get up there...

    With that, are you saying you are submitting 249 variations of the same article to the same article directories throughout a year?

    Hello sir why is it costing so much for your articles . I actually get my article for only .50 a piece they are rewriten by hand and they make perfect sense .

    I recommend going to a freelance site and testing different article writers to find the cheapest best quality . I personally experimented with about 12 or 13 before I choose mine . Not only was he cheap but he also can deliver the exact amount I needed a day plus it was a decent quality .

    Rewrites if they are quality I feel is the way to go . Make sure they are Dupecop passed . Then everything else should be good to go.

    Kind regards,
    Valwardon

    Yes, you are all correct. $25 is a lot of $$ for an article. I have access to the University of Chicago and Northwestern University English departments. Obviously, they are some of the best writers one can find. They charge accordingly. Actually, I am getting a deal. Typically, they charge $1-2/word and on a 400 word post...well you do the math.

    In any case, they are working with my keyword list, cite all sources, make the content extremely relevent and useful. However, with that kind of expense, I am too new to figure out how to make back my investment.

    I am working on White Hat SEO, Blog, Article and Directory marketing etc. I have a strong process and operations background, so I will be able to streamline all costs accordingly when I figure out how to make a meaningful profit that is sustainable.

    When I do, you can bet that I will share this with everyone for free. This will include all vendors tools and processed methods for success. Time factors and how to become efficient where, as a digital marketer, you will provide the most value. (E.g. SEO, PPC, a hybrid of both, etc.)

    At this point, I am impressed with the ability of everyone here. Unfortunately, I don't like to put out unproven activity and say it works when it will just waste your time.

    Thanks for the help. Again, you are right $25 is high. But, in the big picture for what I am doing, you will see the expense is worth it in the end.

    Currently, I am working a project that could rival The Huntington Post. I can't guarantee that I will get there, but this forum has been great.

    Basically, yes.

    Sorry for the delay in the reply, but i've only just come back to this thread.

    Article marketing achieves two things traffic and backlinks. Perhaps the traffic aspect of it will not be so hot with this method, but you will get the backlinks.

    To increase the quality of my spun articles I do the following;

    Write four different articles on the same subject in the same format. So each article has an introduction, three similar sub-headings and a conclusion. Now I submit each of these originals to Ezine articles - these are my premium articles and I bookmark them and give them backlinks. Then I use Power Article Rewriter (I had to buy it for $67) and load up the four articles together in such a way that when it spins it will take an introduction from one article and spin it with paragraph 1 from another and paragraph 2 from another, and so on. I also insert synonyms into the individual paragraphs, as many as possible, and then spin away.

    This method takes time, but it gets results. Let's say you do this every day for 10 days and spin each article 30 times - that's 300 articles.

    Now if you really want to become an article marketing machine; on the 11th day search BHW for 'a*rti*cle p0st r0b0t', get it, sign up to 400+ article directories, input your logins and then with just 15 minutes work every day for the next 10 months generate your site over 100,000 backlinks and a decent amount of traffic.

    This is what I'm going to be busting my hump doing for the next 6 weeks!
