    I'm a new guy in articles marketing.
    This month I write 27 articles with different niches and submit to EzineArticles.com, my account has been upgraded to Platinum status. Each article I put a link in the end of my article which link to my blog, but I do not say any clicks throw the articles, only 65 clicks in 20 days.

    Can some one give me some advice on how to get more clicks or traffics to my website throw articles market?:rolleyes:

    Jerry, in your resource box make a compelling reason for someone to click on your link... something like:

    As you just read, XYZ is a great way to wash your car and you can save huge amounts of money at this site - http://yourdomain.com. Of course, washing your car will make it last longer and get you hot girls as well.

    My click through rate is in the low 20% generally.

    You can also take a look at the free ebook in my sig that may give you some ideas to get your articles read more.

    Also, never write your articles in a way that give readers the impression that they end at the final sentence of each. This is to say - conclude your articles in a manner that they seem to flow into the resource box. By doing this, your readers will be lead to believe that your resources box is the final paragraph of the each article. There you can apply then tip given by BassTrackerBoats.

    Something I've had a lot of luck with, is simply telling people in the body of the article that they should click the link(s) below for more information.

    For example, if your article is "3 Tips for Plastic Widgets" and your tips are #1 about red plastic widgets, #2 about green plastic widgets, and #3 about blue plastic widgets, then end each tip with something like: for more on red plastic widgets click the link below, for more on green plastic widgets check out the links below, click the link below to see why blue plastic widgets are superior to all the rest.

    Obviously (or hopefully) your article isn't going to be about plastic widgets, but I hope that makes the point I'm trying to convey.

    I've gotten over a 50% CTR on a few articles and usually get well over 20% just doing this. Once you get the CTR up to a decent rate, then work on getting more eyes onto your articles and it can begin to snowball for you.

    Another great way to raise your CTR is to actually anchor the action you're tying to get the user to take. Ex:

    Overcoming a fear of purple balloons isn't easy, but there's good news: You don't have to go it alone. Click here to learn how I overcame my fears and now live amongst the balloons in relative peace and harmony.

    There's other effective tricks like strategically bolding text in your resource boxes to direct attention to them. Just don't forget to test variations to find out what works best for you.
