    It is great if your website is new and needs traffic. Just make sure that your articles are useful and informative. Remember, write articles, not ads, publish them and let them simmer...:)

    Depending on where you submit to, article marketing can provide traffic and backlinks. For best results, I would submit to a major article directory and then do some bookmarking and submit other articles pointing to the first one. You could also contact some blog owners in your niche and offer to do some guest posts.

    The primary purpose is traffic and the secondary is backlinks.
    It's the best SEO technique to gain one way backlinks.

    I write long, detailed, informative articles full of controversy and entertainment value which other webmasters and ezine/newletter compilers are re-publishing from all the article directories in which I deposit copies (after first publishing the articles on one of own little sites/blogs and getting them indexed there).

    My objective is to maximise, in the long run, the number of appropriately targeted potential buyers (not just "readers" - and for this reason I often actually do better, in terms of sales, from articles with lower click-through rates than I do from those with higher ones) whom I can get to my site for a pre-sell and/or opt-in, because experience has taught me that pre-selling and building a list with an opt-in are where the real "making-a-living" money is, in article marketing.

    Article marketing gets both targeted traffic and search engine value.

    Absolutely use articles for marketing, and I would say that most internet marketers use articles for marketing, and building back links of course. They are a very very important part of building an online business, and anyone who believes otherwise does not know this business very well yet.

    I haven't used them myself as of yet however it is something I am planning on doing. A lot of people do this and it does work, otherwise they wouldn't do it.

    Article marketing is very effective way to promote your site or blog. However, it is effective when you publish a lot of articles.

    Articles are a great way to get extra traffic and backlinks to your site. Just make sure your article is something people will want to use.
