    I have never been so much into ezine.
    But, now I am thinking about it. I got so bored of all the BH stuff, so though of doing some WH stuff, or may be a combination of bh & wh.

    So, suppose I write 10 articles and submit them to ezine with my link, how powerful would it be, compared to our regular web 2.0s, pyramids etc

    And also, what about squidoo and hubpages, now that they are avoiding spam (no spun shit), they can be considered as WH ;)

    Things have changed with E-Zine over time. They got caught up in the whole "Google Panda" update and saw there ranking / traffic plummet. I think they have regained some ground since then. They also started introducing allot of advertising on there articles which kind of ticked me off. If you think about it. You are writing unique content to drive clicks but the advertising steals them away from you. At the same time you are working to build up THEIR SITE. Just a few points to keep in mind. Like I said I still use e-zine as part of an overall article marketing campaign but I don't put as much weight on them as I used to.

    It's decent for some back links but generating real traffic there is all but over. Recently they buckled down on "spam articles" so your stuff does have to adhere to a certain level of quality. If you hire a 1 cent per word article writer and just post a heap of 300 word articles each week it should get you some good results. Just don't spend too much on the writing portion of your campaign (they don't have to be THAT well written) and you should get a good ROI. You'll get maybe 10 visitors per article depending on your niche so do it just for the content and back links.
