I apologize ahead of time for misleading you into this thread if you think I have all the answers to "The proper way to rank for articles"! Quite the contrary. I am in the question asking mood and was wondering if any of you self appointed experts would chime in for a minute and answer me this: When you are trying to rank for a keyword, what portion do you utilize article writing for? Do you do it just for the high quality backlinks, or do you use the article ranking site just for referrals to your $$ site? I ask this because I am wondering If I should title my articles exactly the same as the keyword because I don't want the article sites out-ranking my $$ sites. But then I say what's the difference as long as I have a reference in the footer. Please, divulge your experience with me. That is all.
