I have been writing articles for my property management company for the past 2 months. My page rank for primary keyword jumped from 8th page to bottom of 2nd page. Please critique my system 1) I write an article for my main site. It is not a blog. Each article has it's own web page. 2) I submit the same article to Ezine Articles 3) I just started trying to submit the same articles to article directories through Article Bot. In the past 7 days, I can't find this article listed on Google for any of these directories. 4) I started doing some social bookmarking. Questions 1) How should I improve this? 2) Do I need to rewrite articles or can I use the same one for all article directories? 3) What else should I do to increase Page Rank? I have a local property management company so I am not trying to monetize my site. I could really use some advice. There are so many "experts" trying to sell me stuff. My primary keyword has 491,000 results after putting it in quotes.
