The title probably got your attention, but maybe this is not so new. And then again, maybe it is new as the internet is not that old. Human beings have been writing for millennia, Writing on the internet with this much ease has only been done for a very short time. I have written a number of articles on the subject of internet marketing, mostly because I am investigating the same, and the best way to clarify your thinking is to put it on paper. Articles will do this for you. Emphasis is on the basics, the kinds of things that anyone new to internet marketing can and should do, not the fancy stuff. These are the not so new home internet marketing strategies that more experienced internet marketers continue to do themselves on a regular basis. They provide the internet marketer with a dependable, recurring, high, and consistent proven income. Focus will be on article marketing because I have become aware of how important this has become to the search engines.
My honest wish is that I had started my online business about 15 years ago when the internet was just getting popular. Like most I didn’t. When I did make the decision to start an online business, and I was really new to home internet marketing strategies, I looked at a number of websites for the keywords I had chosen. I remember the first time I spied on my competition. The site had over a thousand links. I had about 10. I thought to myself, how am I ever going to get this many? The competition is tough! Sites with pr four and pr five on page one of Google are so far ahead of me, I will never be able to make up this lost time.
I was so pre-occupied with Google Adwords, list building, and making fast money that I put the idea of getting a lot of links to my website aside. After about ten dollars, it was a lot more than that, and about a month of wasted time, I bought LinkMachine and started linking. I also started submitting my sight to the internet directories. I started getting some traffic from this, but I knew it was not nearly enough. I realized that most of the people looking at my link pages were not the customers I was seeking, but other internet marketing strategists looking for link partners. My site had gotten a pr three, so there were quite a few. I was getting lots of visits to my web pages, however no sales.
I spent the next few months focusing on my linking strategies along with directory submissions. Traffic continued to increase until all of a sudden, I could not seem to find any more high pr sites to link to. I had pretty much run into most of the relative web sites. Many of them required a pr four or higher. Most ignored my requests to be a link partner. This was probably because of the number of requests they receive. I did not want to link to the pr zero sites any more because I realized that this was not going to help my site when I reciprocate. I had to do something different.
I already had about five articles that had been submitted to a number of article directories. A few of them were sitting on page one for the keywords I had written about. After going through all of this, I decided to go on an article campaign. I wrote five articles in one week. I sat down and registered with about two hundred high pr article directories using Article Submitter Pro. I made sure that all of my old articles were showing up in all of the article directories and added them when I found them missing. I picked up a thousand back links just by fixing the old ones.
Then I submitted the five new ones in one week. Within a week my web page went from about page five and six to page one and two in MSN. It also climbed dramatically in Google for one relatively low traffic keyword phrase. Web page visits increased immediately by one hundred or so. The really cool thing about the search engine pages that my web site was showing up for on page one and two, is that the articles are also showing up on page one and two. So, surfers are clicking on my main web page by clicking on my web page link, and if they don’t do that, they would also see and click on the article links showing up on the same page.
Fresh articles are important in the article directories as well. If the article directory has a recently added section, your article title will show up on that page as well. This not only exposes the article to surfers who frequent that article directory, it provides you web page with another back link in addition to the article back link itself, even though it may only be for a short while. Article directories like Idea Marketers will display this link not only on their main page, but on the pages of articles that are relative to your topic. They have made a science out of creating internal links for their own web site because these pages also contain links back to their own web pages. I had one article in this article directory that generated dozens of back links because the anchor text link showed up on a number of sub-pages.
Here is something about writing articles that I have found a personal observation on. The longer you are pursuing a business, and searching for that one thing that will give you the proven income that every marketer on the internet seems to promise with little or no effort on your part, the more focused your articles become on the keywords you want your web site to show up on page one in the search engines for. When I realized that this was incredibly important, as well as the anchor text in the author box, the higher my web page started to climb in the search engines. My web pages now show up on page one and two in MSN and Google for about a dozen key word phrases. I am adding about one hundred visits per day on average every month.
These new home internet marketing strategies in the form of your own fresh article content contributions, though not so new in concept, will move your web pages up in the search engine rankings fast! My hope is that your web pages climb the misty mountains of Google and MSN and provide you with the proven income you always deserved.
