Ezine articles submission EXPERIMENT

Discussion in 'ClickBank' started by JoseArmando, Mar 6, 2008.

    Me and my brother have submitted 10 articles yesterday and 21 articles today. So there are a total of 31 articles in the review at this very moment.

    I will write additional 5-10 articles in the next few hours and my brother will most probably do the same.

    We are targeting long tail keywords that have about 20-50 searches a day.

    Articles are about 300 words long on average, and it takes me about 15-20 minutes to write one.
    SEMrush
    We are in different niches (he is in weight loss, I am in relationships) and we both send traffic to blogs.
    He does blunt marketing where he mentions the link to the publisher in each blog post, I only use a small text link on the right side of my blog.

    Our goal is to make one sale each PER day. So to reach this goal we started treating IM as a real job for the next few days.

    I will do my best to document this experiment. If you have any questions or suggestions please shoot.

    hi JoseArmando,

    Great stuff! Before too long, I'm sure you'll be blazing past that 1 sale per day mark.
    Do keep us posted and all the very best.

    Cheers and Blessings! ;)

    Let say I have a one page landing page, it converted about 11% - 20% of the people into sales via PPC. Can articles be written on the topic based on that landing page, and then have links in the articles pointing to my landing page? I'm guessing this is the whole point in article marketing. Just don't know the rules.

    Never tried this article marketing, also wondering if it faster /easier to just pay someone to write the articles. It's bad enough I have to find time to design a landing pages. Not sure I can write multiple articles on one subject.

    Yes this is the whole point.

    The only restriction is that with ezinearticles you can't use direct affiliate links, but this rule doesn't apply for you :)
    As for paying I've heard that a lot of "big" marketers buy articles and use them. So I'd guess that if you have enough money this shouldn't be a problem and is in fact even suggested.

    TrafficLicious Will do and thanks

    I'm very interested in knowing how your experiment works out. Please keep us posted. I was wondering whether I should use free articles to try and promote my websites, I might wait for your results to see whether it's worth the effort.

    I'll follow this. I also started writing to Ezine Articles since Google slapped me hard.

    Make sure you place modified articles on blogger, squidoo, and hubpages too.

    Could you show an example of the blog page you link to in your articles?

    What did Google do to you?

    Freegirl I'm glad that you are interested... as for the result, I don't know anything about it since we've submitted more articles in the past few days then all old combined in the last few months (17 pretty badly created articles, posted after little or almost none market research).

    nadavs go go go, act on your motivation and start working now

    anarmyofme my original goal was to post them on my blog after they get published and then submit them to social bookmarking sites, I'll most probably do that tomorrow

    teapoint sure, here is one of my pretty similar blog pages: http://lose-two-pounds-a-week.blogspot.com (I stopped working on it because I lost interest in weight loss)

    teapoint - the "Google Slap" is when the minimum bids for keywords (on AdWords) rise beyond proportion.
    That's what happened to me.

    I know that direct affiliate links are not allowed, but for example can I use html or php redirect?

    So the only way to put your affiliate link is to take a domain and redirect it?

    I've just started article marketing. I haven't got the money to have articles written for me and I lack the discipline to write them myself. So I purchase cheap PLR articles and rewrite them. I have editing experience, so it's the quickest (when I'm not being lazy) and cheapest way for me to churn out reasonably fresh articles.

    Now I'm looking into cheap submission services, to automate that part of article marketing.
