Remember the power of back linking – if you are decided to market your article on your blog site, you can display it by using the title of your awesome article and then insert the URL link of that article. It is not appropriate to link the URL link of your article using the word please “Click” or “Click Here” most of the time search engine crawlers, other spiders and Internet surfers would skip to crawl down it because it takes time to identify what has been linked as crawlers crawl down pages in seconds or crawl it very fast. So better use word text that identifies your link. And whoever clicks the link you shared on your blog site, traffic and views would pour down to your article pages. Visitors and readers used social networks and bookmarking sites to visit your pages too.
Remember for every article a writer has written there is always a corresponding URL link or known as permalink. You can bring the permalink of your article to anywhere as you desired it. Nobody will question it. You are the owner of your product. You can display the permalink of your article in many places across the Internet from your forum groups, FB pages, FB groups or you can use it as your signature.
Sharing the permalink of your article directly to people you know is also acceptable method. When those social networks and other bookmarking sites were not yet available, Internet users were actively have used email. Any stuff that they wanted to share them to their friends, relatives and family – they often used the basic method which was by sharing them through sending emails. Until now I am still using this method and it is very effective too – to market my articles.
Aside from those social networks and other book marking sites, I also shared my profile user name to other publishing sites I am writing for by inserting the permalink. This technique is legal and nobody will charge you spamming. And whoever attracted to click the said profile user name I used – he will be redirected to the landing page of my profile page.
We do not need to spend money to advertise our articles. We writers are already the advertisers. When you shared our articles outside the hosting site through the different methods we know, and that process we are already advertising our products online and promoting them without spending any pennies.
At the time I started my blogging hobby and I started writing for some paying sites, I started adapting this method. I started submitting my profile link for every paying site I am contributing to the three giants search engines such as Bing, Yahoo and Google. Now every time I published a new article, I submit it to Yahoo, Bing and Google using my profile user name. Of course, before I submit them to those search engines – I have first opened an account on them.
Those old published articles when shared across the Internet through the power of social networks and bookmarking sites – surfers would crawl them down as newly published. Every day there are ten of thousands new surfers from around the globe searching interesting and inspiring items on the net. Most of them are not the same surfers who already read and have visited our article pages after three, two, one year, six months, three months, one month and one week ago.
At Google plus – you can create a Google page aside from your Google profile page. Your Google page will cater all what you published on this site. The method is simple – just share the URL link of every article you published here on that page you created at Google . After you shared the link – you will see the title of your article and the summary of your article. And share it publicly or share it only to your Google circle of friends.
At Facebook, you can also create a page about your article pages. Just follow instruction on how to create a Facebook page – they are all available on their site. And when it is done, you can start sharing your published articles on that FB page you created. This is not about FB Networkedblogs. What I am talking here is about a page created only for all articles I published here and other websites I am writing for including from my other blog sites. This is not also a FB fan page.
Advertising an article through a photo is also legal. What you see are only titles and the photos but if some one wanted to visit and click the source he will be redirected to the whole published article. Every clicks on the source is additional traffic and views to my article pages. I called this technique as “turning articles into article photos“. And if I marketed this article outside the hosting site – and there are surfers read this article – those old published articles would have the chance to be crawled down too. So – it is up to the article author what method he would use to promote his articles inside and outside the publishing site for as long his methods to be used would comply the site, Social Networks and other Bookmarking sites policies. That’s all for now guys.
