    Hi Guys

    Im new to seo so i have a few questions if anyone can help out and give there 2 cents that would be great.

    When trying to rank for a certain keyword would it make sense to write 1 article and send it to say 50 articles directories all linking back to my main website, or to a certain page of my website ?

    Also say that the article was accepted by 40 of the directories would that then mean i have 40 backlinks to my site ? Say article marketing wasnt good for my niche would this then be a waste of time because i wouldnt get any traffice from it ? Or if i would still get the backlinks i take it that it would be worth my time ?

    Also when going after a keyword would i make a lot of 1 off pages in facebook bebo etc ? or would i make 1 main facebook page for my website and then do new posts with the keyword i was going after ?

    Same with blogs and youtube etc, would i make one big blog with new post titles being my keyword and then in the content or make a new blog everytime im trying to rank for a keyword ?

    Any advice would be great and if you know of any tools that you use for seo white hat id be very gratefull.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Article marketing has one purpose only: driving traffic. Use the authority power of sites like ezine articles to get your article and a link to your website in a top position. This is like a traffic satellite for your money site.

    Many people here on the forum use article directories for links but this is a terrible waste of time.

    Article links will be worth something, but the amount of effort required for a solitary article link is unacceptable.

    If you need to build links, read about comment spam and profile spam, takes some time to master but is about 20x quicker and more effective than article backlinks. Also look into creating a web 2.0 network. Notice I'm not calling it a linkwheel, it has to look like a random network.

    I found targeted comment spamming to be somewhat effective. This method posted by Micallef has helped me.

    Give it some thought and make it work for you...
