How To Write Articles For Page 1 Rank On Google, Yahoo & Bing is an important concept to help with article marketing and video marketing.
Writing articles is very similar to video marketing because your goal is to get someone to take an action by opting in to something or buying something.
We use the same strategy across all platforms to get on the real estate we want to be seen.
You do not need to change your marketing campaign if you are writing articles, shooting videos, posting on Facebook or tweeting on Twitter.
In this lesson, we are going to write an article, submit the article to Ezine Articles and try to establish real estate on Page 1 of Google, Yahoo & Bing.
We will begin by writing a title that has between 60-70 characters with spaces. The number one rule for your title is to put your main keyword at the very beginning of the title. There are no exceptions to this rule.
You are given 100 characters on Ezine Articles to add your keywords. This means you’ll have 5 or 6 keyword phrases. Choose these words wisely and make sure you use them in the body of your article.
You will also have to choose a category and a subcategory. Try to choose the most relevant topics they give you.
You will also have to write a summary of your article. They allow you 300 words, but they suggest you stay between 2-5 sentences. I usually write 3 sentences and this is much shorter than 300 words.
Don’t worry if you see a yellow warning flag. This usually means you have extra whitespace in your summary. They will remove it upon submission.
Your summary should have everything you have in your title. This is very similar to the beginning of your description for YouTube videos.
The most important part of your article is the body. You need to have at least 400 words in the body and no more than 500 words. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Just like YouTube marketing, you want to present a problem in the first few paragraphs. Make sure your main keyword shows up in paragraph 1. NO EXCEPTIONS!
I like to keep my paragraphs to no more than 3 lines because it makes it much easier to read.
Now that you’ve stated the problem, you want to provide solutions to the problem. The most efficient way to do this is by using steps or tips.
If you use three to ten tips or steps, you can easily get to 400 words very quickly this way.
After you finish your last tip, you’ll need to leave a paragraph or two to summarize your points.
Today we spent time reviewing the best ways on how to write articles for Page 1 rank on Google, Yahoo & Bing. If you follow these guidelines you will get your articles approved without a hitch. Good luck with your article marketing!

Writing good articles – Article submission tips and writing
Post by : Juan Carlos Sanchez
A good way to gain publicity and visitors for your website or service is to submit articles on quality sites. We will briefly put together a few points which one should consider while submitting their travel articles.
It is no secret that a good way to gain publicity and visitors for your website is to submit articles on quality sites. At the same time I strongly believe that submitting your articles on sites which share the same niche (or category) as yours is a better way to indicate search engines about the category of your article. For example it does not make a lot of sense to publish an article of travel or tourism on a finance website or a technology blog. The visitors of a travel website are likely to be in a mindset of vacation ideas, hotels, airline deals, events and travel attractions. Now if a visitor comes across your article on a travel site, it not only provides a reference link back to your website but most important the person is actually interested in that niche.
We will briefly put together a few points which one should consider while submitting their articles. We have selected travel niche as an example for these article writing tips.
1. Basic strategy of writing articles:
Your article should be written in simple English and easily understandable my most users. It does not need to be too long but usually recommended no little than 300 words, preferably more around 500 words. Clearly state what the travel article is about, use short paragraphs and bullet points. Always provide true facts, good or bad. Consider using use numbers and figures in the text in your articles wherever applicable.
Always use good attention-grabbing titles which not only contain your main keywords, but also give the brief idea to the users that what your travel article is about.
3. Keyword density:
Well if your article is about New York tourism then we recommended that you should have it in your title and multiple times in the body of your article. There are several free tools available on the internet to evaluate your article’s keyword density.
4. Link to your site:
If you have a website, then you should certainly provide a link back to your site, if this article is about a section inside your site then consider giving the inner link over your homepage.
5. Bookmark your article with Sites: Once submit travel article and it is published you should consider it book marking using Delicious, Reddit, Digg and Stumble upon. Since these are social bookmark sites, this will also deliver significant traffic to your website. Similarly subscribing to the RSS feed using sites like bloglines and netvibes has similar advantages.
6. Write often: People and search engines are always looking for new articles. You will not only have more links pointing back to your site but also real organic traffic.

Are You Making These Article Marketing Mistakes?
Post by : Juan Carlos Sanchez
For those who are not finding success with articles, or for those considering starting out, here are a few ground rules that will save you a lot of work in the long run.
As an article directory owner and editor I am exposed to a huge number of articles every single day of the week.
I sometimes receive complaints from authors who are angered by the fact that their article has not been published, which leads me to believe that there are still a lot of people out there who do not understand article marketing, nor the role that directories play.
For those who are not finding success with articles, or for those considering starting out, here are a few ground rules that will save you a lot of work in the long run and will likely get your article marketing career off to a much more auspicious start.
Read the article directory’s specific terms of service and guidelines. This may seem like a boring, tedious and long winded waste of your valuable time but in the long term it will save you hours of frustration and wasted effort. All directories set their own rules and some are stricter than others. Most directories labor under a huge number of submissions and the work of sifting through them is often the job of one individual. This means that if your opening paragraph or introductory statement is poorly written or contains mistakes, that is as far as the editor will go before hitting the delete key. The luxury of time to edit an author’s mistakes or to decline an article as opposed to deleting it, is one that most editors do not have.
Mass submissions are usually viewed as spam. Let’s face it, none of us are capable of writing over 200 articles in a day – I would say that even producing more than ten would be a pretty amazing feat of productivity. It should come as no surprise to those submitting large numbers of articles in a 24 hour period to find that they are all deleted. Article directory software usually allows for quick erasure of such submissions, so if you don’t want your work to fall victim to mass deletion, don’t mass submit. All that is needed is a little common sense. If you are using a submission service, set the option to stagger your submissions over a longer period of time.
Proof read your articles. If you don’t know what this means, look it up! If your writing is riddled with spelling errors, poor structure, punctuation horrors and grammatical butchery, don’t be surprised if none of them get published. I could write thousands of words on the most common mistakes seen in people’s writing. These usually involve spelling and grammar. Spell check your articles, even if you think you’re perfect, you will often be surprised at the mistakes you make. If you tend to misspell a word regularly, you will never correct it unless you make yourself aware of it.
If you are of the opinion that these things don’t matter (after all, people will know what you mean!) then think again. If you want to write and, more importantly, see your work published and picked up by other website owners and bloggers, you need to demonstrate an ability to write well.
As an example, all the «SEO experts» who talk about search engine optimisation (sic) but don’t even understand that being able to spell their claimed occupation correctly would lend a little more credibility to their claims. Just for the record, most words ending in «ize» use a «z» and not an «s». This is a very common mistake, but it would be corrected by the use of a spell checker, as would so many others.
If you want to write with authority, you have to be able to exhibit basic literacy. Yes, this is important and should be borne in mind by those who eulogize about «the Queen’s English», thus making themselves look even more foolish than those they chastise. (a good example of a word that does actually end in “ise”) Regardless of who is on the throne, it is always «the King’s English».
None of us are perfect and this is not a lecture on grammar and spelling, no matter how needed it might be.
If you are tempted to use PLR articles, even if you rewrite them in an attempt to make them unique, remember that you will be competing with all the other shortcut seekers who are doing the same thing. It’s another shortcut to the delete key for a lot of directories.
When it comes to the resource box, it is quite amazing how many authors defeat their entire purpose by making a mess of this vital section. If the article directory in question allows one, two or three live Hyperlinks, make good use of them. Think about your anchor text very carefully. In other words don’t say……to find out more click here and Hyperlink the words «click here». The resource box is where you need to give readers a compelling reason to visit your site(s) but it is also the one place you can make the most of good keywords as the anchor text in your links.
Use the resource box wisely and take full advantage of everything the directory is offering you by way of promotional tools. Adding your URL without making it a live link is a pointless waste of time if the directory allows you to use Hyperlinks in your resource box. Conversely, adding more than the quota of permitted links will probably result in deletion of your work.
Another thing to watch is linking directly to affiliate programs. Read the directory’s policies on this point or again, you may well find yourself on the cutting room floor. Many directories will stipulate that you may only link to affiliate programs indirectly by referring readers to your own site or domain. Some do not allow straight redirect links either.
Relevancy is also an issue here too. In other words, submitting a PLR piece about gardening and linking to your MLM program is not very helpful or wise, just one more recipe for deletion.
I should finish by saying that yes, you can churn out badly written articles to your heart’s content, just don’t be surprised at the results.
