How To Make Your Articles Stick
« on: November 28, 2008, 06:05:11 PM »
Hey Guys,

I just acquired rights to this short report ...


How To Make Your Articles Stick

So, you're sick and tired of your articles dropping in Google after just a few days? Well, it's time to do something about it!

If you have been using the Bum Marketing Method for any amount of time you quickly realize that the key phrases you get listed for is brilliant only to go and check back a few days later and find out that your listing can not be found! In this report I am going to show you not how to stop this from happening as no-one can control Google, but once it does happen and your listings drop exactly what to do to get them back!

I assume if you are using the Bum Marketing method you must know about how to write your articles so they get listed but here a few points that may help you get them listed higher. Firstly do your keywords research following the Bum Marketing Method, which you should already know.

I search for keywords that get more than 30 searches a day and that have competition of no more than 15,000 when put in quotes! Here are a few quick pointers of how to get your article listed higher:

1.   Always have the title as the key phrase – So if your key phrase was “Dog Training” your title should be “Dog Training – 7 Secrets The Pros Use” or something to that effect!

2.   Always start your article with the key phrase, this is important because Google’s Spiders sometimes do not read through an entire page and it will get indexed faster.

3.   Mention the key phrase about 2-3 times a paragraph depending on the size of the paragraph of course!

4.   Most important in your author’s bio box make sure you mention the phrase again and also put an Anchor Link for the key phrase.

So you would have something like your author bio and then your call to action would be “To Find Out The One Real Secret Of Dog Training Click The Link Below”. The Anchor link is made like this:

<a href="http://www.yoursitehere.com">Dog Training</a>

Obviously put your site instead of the URL above and it will make a link that says “Dog Training” for people to click on! Follow those pointers above when writing your articles and you will see your listings soar! Now on to the main report on how to get your listings to stick to Google.

The main reason that Google removes articles and ads and you notice your work there one day and gone the next is normally because you do not have enough back links!

Here Is How To Get Your Listings And Articles To Stick to Google Like Super Glue!

First off you can use this for any article or US Free Ads or Squidoo Lens that you want to get back into the listings:

Step 1:

Go to www.Digg.com – Digg is a social bookmarking site where people submit stories and reports and is best used to get your articles bumped up or your squidoo lens back in the listings. Unfortunately you can not use Digg for US Free Ads but I will tell you how to do that later…

So once you are at Digg.com sign up for an account if you need one and then all you need to do is submit a new story! Once you have done that you will be at a page like this:


 
Enter the article or squidoo lens address into the box and click on submit.

You will then be taken through to a page that looks like this:
 


Here all you do is enter a quick overview about what your article or squidoo lens is about. I have used the Dog Training example. Also remember to lay it out as I have done in the screenshot above and use your key phrases a few times a paragraph.

Also note that Digg are quite strict on Spamming so do not over do it! You should be linking through to articles or squidoo lens with good content so you should not run into any problems!

Step 2:

Go to http://www.onlywire.com/ this is another social bookmarking service that enables you to post to multiple social bookmaking services all at once!

You can also use this one for your US Free Ads as well!

Once you get there you will need to click on the link that says “Start Using It Now” and create a username and password.

Once you have done that you will be at a page like this:

 

The first thing you need to do on this page is at the top where it has a link that says “Save Page (std)” you need to drag and drop this into your tool bar which is normally where the links are to Windows marketplace and so on.

Once you have done that you need to click on the links in the picture above and sign up for an account at each one. This is tedious I know but it will sky rocket your listings. Then come back to this page above and enter your username and password in the boxes above and remember to click on “Save My Logins” at the bottom.

After you have done all that go back to the squidoo lens or article you submitted to digg and while on the page, Click on the Save page link that should now be in your toolbar. This will take you through to a page similar to the one on digg and you should write you bookmark in much the same way.

With the key phrase as the title and the comments and notes using the key phrase a few times every paragraph! After you have followed the steps above you should see your listing come back into Google within a few days, although most of the time it is a lot quicker!

If All Else Fails:

If you still can not see you’re listing after a couple of days go to http://sfbay.craigslist.org/ and submit a listing in exactly the same way as you write the bookmarks above into the small biz ads section on this page.

Also bear in mind that craigslist gets you indexed super fast although do not use the service more that once every 24 hours or they will just remove the listing.

If you are still not listing on Google at that point (you should be!) you should write an article containing the key phrase and submit it to http://www.goarticles.com/ and another article with the key phrase with different content to http://searchwarp.com/

That’s all there is too it!

I recommend following the steps above on your Bum Marketing listings that are making you money that suddenly drop, although you could use it for each of your articles and Squidoo lens if you wanted and totally dominate Google!


“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that,
but the really great makes you feel that you, too, can become great.”

Wow! Mark.

That about made me tired just reading it.   ;D

Thank you for being so thorough. And I imagine that once we get to doing this it won't seem as tedious and it will also go faster.

I do realize, however, that if we have any hopes of  "staying in the game" it will take effort. Efforts that will also pay off in the end if we stick with it.

Yet another brilliant report..thanks Mark

Just one thing..I tried to submit one of my Ezinearticles to Digg and it wouldn't let me.

It seems that Ezinearticles has been accused of being a 'spam' vehicle by Digg and thus they won't carry any bookmarks for Ezinearticles.

Yikes!

That's an interesting turn of events.  Thank you for this information about Digg vs Ezinearticles.

I completely agree Karen. It is the act of 'giving up' on a certain routine that causes so many people to not have the success at Internet Marketing that they have come to expect.
I'm sooo guilty of giving up on a certain marketing method becuase it wasn't doing what I had been led to expect i.e. making me thousands of dollars overnight..or at least by the end of the weekend.
I mean article marketing works.. Travis Sago of Bum Marketing, Jimmy Brown, Lance Winslow (the top Ezinearticles published author with in excess of 15,000 (yup fifteen thousand) articles to his name); I've just got to be prepared to do the work - take the action etc.

It is amazing, Jason.

I'm curious, though, as to how long it took him to get in excess of 15,000 articles to his name. I bet it was more than a week.

So while we compare ourselves to all these greats (which is good as long as we keep things in perspective), we want to keep in mind that it takes time and lots of work.

And then just think, before long everyone will be talking about us that way, too.  ;D

Tim has been a 'platinum' member of Ezinearticles for almost 4 years (Platinum means that he has published in excess of 15 articles and thus his submissions are dealt with quicker than noobies'). Seemingly, Tim (& his team (if he has one)) submit anything up to 10 articles a day.

So, if we took the 100,000 articles we could download from the Gold membership we could soon be up to Tim's level.

Coo..that's worth thinking about!

Wow, Dominic, thank you for the details re: Tim's "platinum" status at Ezinearticles and for the extra information about the number of articles he submits a day. That there's a lot of articles.  Does the man ever sleep?

I do like your correlation with our 100,000 articles in the Gold membership.   ;D

Hi Karen

Well, 10 x 400 word articles a day (easy enough to do if you are doing this full time) it would take 1500 days or around 4-5 years and you'd still have 85,000 articles 'in stock' to create backlinks with !

Just how powerful is this gift of 100K articles - Thanks yet again Mark

D

P.S. Mr. Tubbs - you are a writer..how many PLR re-writes could you do in a working day (9 - 5 say?)

Dom,

Thank you for the calculations re: the number of articles vs years to complete.   ;D

Update --

With over 20,000 articles, the #1 author on ezinearticles is......Sean Mize. Sean inspired the idea of actually planning out your article campaign that I mentioned in another post to out merry band here.

Just another reminder in case you missed it elsewhere...always "spin" your PLR articles. Although I prefer to do it manually, I'm not against a good spinner software. I just haven't found on yet.

All the best - MM

Hi MM,

There was a member a couple of weeks ago who had a link for "spinning", but the problem I can't remember what post. I think I might have e mailed Karen with the link. It was an excellent spinner. If I remember you could geta trial for $7 then I think it was $77 per annum. Of course I deleted the e mails. I will go and check if I sent her a PM.
