SEO: Article submission

August 16, 2011

Hi,

What types of content sharing are effective? What are the best sites?

Who here has experience in getting a site to the top using content sharing / article submission? Can you tell me about it?

From what I have read in several places, articles submission is not really as effective as its champions say, at least if you hope that submitting your article to a single place will magically cause several sites to publish your article and thus create lots of links to your site.

Of course, it is a different story if you are meaning submitting some article to one reputable site: this has certainly a very positive impact on your reputation as well as your site ranking. We are speaking here of submitting each article to only one (good) site at a time.

Good alternatives to this are also participations in forums and groups, eg groups by Google or Yahoo

Hi guys, experience SEO guy here - a number of crucial points.

Article submission isn't as effective as it used to be, but done properly it can still provide great results.

What is properly?

  - Original content

  - Link back to your site (without 'rel=nofollow' tag or any other link obfuscation)

  - Most important, on high PR ranking sites (so not article submission sites) - you want to get them published on websites which are relevant to your website - if you are selling a product offer these websites commission.

As fibo points out, participation in forums and groups certainly helps (obviously a link back in your signature)

Publishing good quality 'content' on your website will also help stand your website in good stead, and can bring potential customers in who are looking for information on your product/service - who you can then convert to buyers.

Hope that helps.

Best,

Ben

@benwiggy:

"Most important, on high PR ranking sites (so not article submission sites) - you want to get them published on websites which are relevant to your website - if you are selling a product offer these websites commission."

I couldn't offer commissions, but what kind of sites are you referring to? I don't think article submission sites are good enough, but what other sites are there? You can use example niches to show me what you're talking about if you want.

Example niche: web developers and SEO

A site with external articles:

Here is a good answer.  Connect with this person or his products. I have heard him talk, met him. He gets it.

Hi - sorry for the delayed reply - some examples:

If I was selling flowers, I would try and promote the website by:

  - publishing articles on websites about flowers

  - publishing quality content about flowers on my website

  - updating wikipedia articles about flowers with new information, and then indicating that the source was the page on my website with that content (i.e. as a reference)

  - offering websites about flowers commission on sales, using simple cookies to track orders (or even just browsers sessions - if you aren't technical please excuse the jargon)

  - post on forums about flowers with detailed answers, linking back to my site from my signature

Hope that helps.

Find the sites reprinting your articles and provide them with unique content.

Use social networking sites to network.  Find people who need content and provide it.

Of course, your links will be in all the content you provide.
