    So, i've been looking around for a while, and people always talk about how you can write a review or something, with your CPA link, and submit it to E-zine articles, and actually make money?!

    I've personally tried to submit like 5 articles to them, all with my CPA link, but never got any of them published?!...

    Anybody help me out?

    You can't direct link to a CPA offer.

    The best way to go about things is to have your eZine article link to a blog or a landing page.

    From there, you can link to your CPA offer.

    ...alright

    So should I make up a blog about the product, write an article for e-zine, hyperlink a few words, and then link to my blog at the end??

    - and should I have the CPA offer on my blog from the beginning? or after it gets published?

    Put the link to your blog in the eZine article.

    Once the readers are directed to your blog, you can use the blog to promote the CPA offers.

    But if you don't want to go through the hassle, you can use different article submission directories that allow affiliate links.

    I recommend:

    • searchwarp
    • goarticle
    • content caboodle
    • article city

    Here is what you do.

    Hyperlink to a top-level domain. Redirect this domain to your affiliate link. You can do this in your cpanel.

    Ezine doesnt let you link to something like www.boosey12.com/grants but they will let you link to www.boosey12.com.

    All you gotta do is have boosey12.com redirect to the affil link.

    Keep in mind this isn't always the best strategy. For some offers you will experience higher conversion rates by first directing the reader to one of your own review pages.

    If you are short on money just buy .info domains for this. Make them keyword related to your product.

    The people in this thread who say you can't do this are wrong. I do it everyday.

    Dude, use NAMECHEAP. It is far superior to Godaddy.

    With this coupon you get a free SSL certificate, free Whoisguard, and a $8.81 domain(.com, .net, .org)--- INTERFACE

    Keep in mind too that once an article has been submitted and approved at ezinearticles that any edits done to it after approval, will make the article resubmit all over again. So you can not insert a regular link somewhere, get it approved, then edit that link, or anything for that matter, without the article being pulled and resubmitted all over again

    Just a helpful hint to get more authority and exposure for your articles, once they're published on sites like SearchWarp and Content Caboodle you'll have an RSS feed for the author's account. Use R$$ $ubmit (here on the forum) or some other rss submission software to submit those feeds to tons of directories.

    Also, make sure to social bookmark your published articles and post them to Pligg sites too.

    Any extra traffic or link juice you can build to the articles will ultimately flow through to your blog.

    I've worked with article directories and most authors blow it by thinking that just having their articles published will make magic happen. The ones who are actually making money from articles hustle to make their articles stand out by building backlinks and authority to them.

    Ok...

    So how the hell do I get articles to actually go live on e-zine??
    I've submitted a few, and they all say
    "you cannot promote your own website/product", "there's a link above the fold"....

    should I put the link in the signature area?? or what??

    If I remember correctly you put the link in the 'resources' area which appears at the end of the article, also remember to write something attracting like "I am experienced in this field, if you want to know more about XXXX, visit my site at www.blabla.com", whatever suits what you will promote and what your article talks about.

    Yeah, eZine is strict on links. You need to place them in your author's resource box. Most of the article directories have similar rules, though aren't usually as strict as eZine with it.

    GoArticles isn't bad with allowing links in the articles, but I've never had much luck getting those links to bring any traffic or juice for me. I'd say its worth submitting to, but don't rely on it for anything.

    Content Caboodle is one that allows links in the article body, I think up to 3 links as long as they appear informational and don't lead straight to sales carts or signup form pages.

    I haven't submitted to SearchWarp in a while, but in the past I've never had problems with a single link in my article body there either. Just don't stuff them with a bunch of links.

    Hope that helps

    hey boosey if you want to buy domains you could use the following code:

    199TEST - It will give you a dot com domain at $1.99 also try
    hash1
    hash2
    hash3

    don't remember what the hash ones are for, put them in and see for yourself.
