If you’re just starting out as a newbie writer, and you want to make more money, read on!
If you’re new to the business of writing SEO articles, blogger reviews, self-publishing articles, or selling your own products, here’s some advice that will help.
First of all, don’t write for the search engines. Be sure to write for your readers. Google will ultimately determine what your articles are about, and they expect you to write about things that are related to your articles. If it’s not, you won’t get listed in the search engines.
A good example of what you should write, and what you won’t want to write, in this situation:
If you were to choose the above example of ‘article writing’, then you know that your readers would pay (to read) something that focuses on the subject of ‘article writing advice’. And you will create a guide about it.
You’ll put together a list of things that are under your submission category. Then you’ll get to the point of including the link.
You’ll make sure that it focuses on your submission category, and that it includes the link. You can put that link in the body a few times, or just post it at the end, like this article.
Each time you do it like this, you’ll be building another link from another separate source to your website. You can’t imagine how many links you can get from doing this!
If you know HTML, you know the value of using the following HTML tags:
It is generally a good idea to use ‘nofollow’ tags in your content. But don’t fixate on it. What matters is that you use the tags that you need, and that you use them when you have to. Trying to get every link that you can without using the nofollow tags will only water down the importance of your original link.
This is one of the most important things when it comes to search engine optimization. The more links pointing to your website, the better.
But if you’re just starting out and don’t have many clients, you won’t be able to offer many links. So you’d need to find other websites that you can get links from.
Try out building links with a blogroll, guest posting, and even by writing articles with a link to your website in the footer.
Writing and submitting articles can increase your rankings
This is particularly important if you’re starting out and have no experience. In addition to the traffic that you will receive from the article sites, Google will also give you credit for each incoming link to your website.
This means that if you have repeat visitors that find your articles through search, they will come back to your website. They will also come back to your blog and read the new posts. This will soccer you to the top of the list for new visitors!
You’ll also benefit from the WordPress’ ‘read more’ plugin which allows visitors to click on links to the full article. That way they’ll be taken to the full content which must be of interest to them.
