    My niche is so specific that very few people search for it. Ezinearticles is unlikely to accept most of my articles.

    What else can I do? I have a budget but not big enough for AdWords. How else can I build a good list?

    Thanks in advance!

    PS White Hat only please, I'm a complete noob and don't know enough how to not get caught doing the wrong things.

    hmm.. can't pm until I have 15 posts. well, I may have resolved the issue. EZA may accept the articles if I re-write them and take out the parts that they do not like. I'll try it and get back if I have more problems. Thanks so much for your willingness to help!

    You're missing out on a lot of free traffic if you don't post at EZA. If you choose your keywords carefully (low competition keywords; full of PR0s and PR-), you can easily dominate Google 1st page.

    I haven't tested at ArticlesBase (cause I heard their traffic can rival EZA's) although I do have articles there. They are all duplicate articles (with different titles and resource box) though. So I don't think they managed to reach the 1st page of Google.

    On the other hand, all of my Buzzle have hundreds of views. (200 to 400 and increasing daily). But when I checked the CTR from Buzzle to my money sites at G Analytics, it seemed to be very low.

    I really don't understand why you're not getting accepted into EZA.

    But I do know that it takes a lot of time at first (when you are at Basic). If your articles contained grammar mistakes and errors, you will have to wait for a very long time to get them approved.

    When you do get to BasicPlus (you can post up to 25 articles), you cannot make grammar mistakes here. If you do, you'll get demoted back to Basic or have to wait as long as 2 weeks to get your articles approved.

    I know this best because I have had my account demoted from Platinum to Basic Plus because of grammar mistakes (write and submit, no proofreading) and duplicate content.

    Long story short, make your articles error free.

    How to solve this problem? You must spend an additional 1 - 2 minutes proofreading your written articles.

    How specific is your niche, how many searches a day?

    Assuming you are getting enough searches a day to make it worth your time then you need to get your articles in ezinearticles and other article directories. Have you tried to submit it to them or are you assuming they wont take them? I have helped clients get some very specific articles in rather small niches published. Article directories love original content as long as it is revelant so goahead and send it in to them. Just make sure the articles are well written and to the point.
