    I wrote an article about three weeks ago that I uploaded to GoArticles about a health subniche. I included an affiliate link to a CB eBook I'm promoting. I'm obviously pretty new to IM, so I apologize if this "n00b" question irritates some. What BH methods would you guys suggest to help my article get as close as possible to spot #1 for my keyword? Should I pay to have a linkwheel or something created?

    Thanks for your help/patience....

    Holy crap... earlier today, I voted for my article on Go Articles (prior to this, it had 0 votes), and I just did a Google search for the keyword I targeted in the article, and my article is the SECOND result!

    What the hell?! Could I have shot my article to the top of Google simply by voting for it?

    Also, I just realized that, being a total dumbass, I forgot to bold the keywords in my article. I've heard that Google often de-indexes articles when authors edit them.... can anyone corroborate or refute? Or is it not a big deal that the KWs aren't bolded?

    Also, I appreciate any other advice concerning promotion you guys would be willing to give...

    I advise more backlinks and you will take the first spot. Try an xrumer blast since it is an article it will take the first spot easily. Never give up and you will eventually take it.

    Yeah backlinks are the key. You can get either bookmarking backlinks, profile backlinks, blog comments. They should easily get you to number one.

    But more importantly d3t0x's Avatar is the best i have ever seen. Sorry for hijacking the thread a little

    I'm surprised Goarticles doesn't offer an author RSS feed (only categories) like EZA does. That's a great way to get easy backlinks to your articles.

    Thanks for the replies.

    About doing an Xrumer blast... is there a chance that this would result in my article getting de-indexed by Google? Also, what should I link my article to? (e.g., the salespage itself, a product reviews blog, etc.)

    Well, that's nice to know. So would blasting my article with Xrumer almost definitely result in sales if I link the article to the affiliate product's landing page, or should I link to a blog with reviews of that product along with similar ones?
