    Hey,

    I'll be starting Bum Marketing, however I have some doubts that need to be settled.

    This is how I'm proceeding:

    1. Asked my AM which were the best converting CPA offers at the moment

    2. Did keyword research on that niche, with Adwords Keywords Tool (had over 2000 searches per month, and people were spending money on those keywords)

    3. Analyzed the competition with SENuke, and chose the doables ones

    4. Write articles around those keywords. Density about 4-5%, keyword once in the title and once in the first paragraph.

    5. Submit them to article directories. I've once read that it's better just to submit only to ezinearticles, and that's what I'm doing.

    6. At the end of the article, redirect the people to my landing page.


    I'll do a review-type landing page, however, I have a doubt: should I also use some of the articles in the landing page, so it's rich on the keywords?

    And, do you recommend spinning off the articles with Power Article Rewriter and submit them to ezinearticles again?

    My thoughts: no need to put the articles on your landing page if you already have the content you want on it.

    In other words, your landing page should have 1 goal, to send people to your affiliate links. Adding article content to it just gives them something else to do other than click your affiliate link.

    For the landing page SERPs just be sure your article links use the keywords you want it to rank for in the anchor text.

    As for only submitting articles to eZineArticles... okay if you like limiting yourself to just 1 traffic and backlinks source.

    Personally, I like getting visitors and backlinks from dozens of different sources, but that's just me.

    I would submit articles also at GoArticles, SearchWarp, Content Caboodle, Article City and then dump a couple to a bunch of directories using Article Post Robot too.

    Spinning your articles with Power Article Rewriter is fine, but I wouldn't submit them to the same place (eZineArticles) again, those are what I'd be submitting to the other article directories out there.

    Thanks for you help scb335.

    I think I will submit my original to those places, and then the spinned ones to the articles directories.

    How much spins do you recommend doing for each article?

    And how much original articles for the same keyword is usually better? As much as possible?

    Regarding:
    I should link (anchor text) the keywords that I want to use to the landing page?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, whatever keywords you want your landing pages to rank for, those are the terms you should use in your anchor text of article links.

    As for how many spins to make of each, I'd say as many as you can without them being too closely duplicated. In other words, if you can turn each article into 5 unique pieces of content then 5 is great. If you can turn them into 10 then that's better, so long as all of them are fairly unique from each other.

    Also, don't forget that even though Bum Marketing focuses on article submissions, you can also use your content to create Squidoo Lenses, HubPages, Weebly blogs and etc. wherever you're allowed to publish your content.

    All of those can attract targeted visitors, and link back to your main landing pages.

    My last suggestion is to remember to social bookmark all of your articles on all of the directories as they are published. This will help the articles get indexed and rank faster, and that flows into your landing pages gaining authority quicker from your article links.

    Sorry for my late answer to this thread.

    I have my landing page created, outsourced the article production and submited them to ezine articles.

    As soon as they're published I'm going to social bookmark them.

    I should never use the same article twice, right? Even if it's on other directories, and such.

    Now, get more articles done, submit them to other directories, and use the R$$ $ubmit?

    Always using a different article for each publishing? The articles that I've posted on ezine articles, will only be there, right?

    I just want to make sure of that step, since I've heard only to place the articles on ezine articles, and never on other places. However, I've also heard to publish them on the following best directories. Just to maintain it on ezine seems more plausible, or I would be competing against me.

    People, I dont understand: Is it better to submit the same article to maybe 50 directories or is it better to submit spinned articles to the top few?

    Home Page:
    I'm going to be the fly in the ointment here - is your entire NICHE only getting 2000 searches per month? Or was that one keyword?

    See, that's not very many searches for an entire niche and in my opinion doing a huge number of articles in hopes of grabbing just 10% of that traffic (because that's what you'll generally grab depending on how many listings you get on the first page of Google) might not be worth it.

    Unless you have extremely low competition for your keyword. Say, under 5000-10,000 competiting results with your keyword in quotes like this "keyword" typed into Google.

    I just don't want you to make the mistake of running around after such a small amount of keywords. If you want to target 2000 searches, fine, but I'd say just do a couple of ezinearticles, maybe a squidoo lens or hub, and more importantly build backlinks to your articles so people will start finding them.

    What is better: Squidoo Lens or Blog? If money is a concern?
