    Let's say you have a long tail keyword niche such as 'mens basketball shoes' and would like to get some articles out there linking to your website. What would your keyword be in the article? If you write about 'mens basketball shoes' your site will be outranked by the articles you write. But how broad do you go? Mens shoes, basketball shoes, something else?

    I've outranked myself before with articles and don't want to do it again, but don't want to go TOO broad and not have the article relate.

    You can't promote heavily your sites because it may face risk of getting site sandbox... With articles you will not have that risk.... SO in start your articles are gonna outrank your site...

    Later on your site will outrank them because your site will also have on page optimization which articles doesn't have... Then once your site got on first page stop working on your articles or keep decreasing it with time, only work on your main site... Keep doing it until you are outranking your articles...

    I have done it several times and it works...
