As most of you know by now I do quite a bit of article marketing as part of my affiliate marketing strategy. Recently I was able to get 20,000 views to one of my articles in under 60 days resulting in me getting that article into both the Top 10 Most Viewed section of EA as well as the Top 10 Most Published section of EzineArticles.
Here is how I did it.
Step 1: Write an original content article after researching “Keywords that get search results” and providing content that was useful to the end reader.
Step 2: I sent this article out to my mailing list. I don’t have a big mailing list, I have approx 500 people who are on it but are highly targeted.
Step 3: Created Backlinks from both my websites and other related websites to drive traffic further.
Step 4: I created links from a couple of my hubs over at Hubpages. I also use Hubpages for Affiliate Marketing.
These 4 steps were enough to get me enough views to make it into the Top 10 Most Viewed on EzineArticles resulting in a ton of backlinks from all Affiliate Revenue articles helping me rank better in the search engines as well as providing me with thousands of views directly through EA.
Now the article I wrote can be found here : How to Start Your Own Affiliate Marketing Business Earning $3K per month
As you can see the article has some very good keywords as well as a heading that makes people curious as to how they can make money online and how to start.
Within that article I then used the resource box to link to a very successful Hub of mine called: Promoting Clickbank Products Absolutely Free and Making Money with them.
Looking back through the stats the original article over at EA is converting very well back to my Hub.
Imagine if I would of directly linked to my website with Affiliate Links though, I could of been making a hell of a lot of money through this one article. I always say to people who are thinking of writing for EA that it is quality over quantity. There is no need to write article after article and you should concentrate more on the articles you have already written and look into creating backlinks for those articles, read my guide on Creating Backlinks for ideas.
Now for those who have not read my other articles on Hubpages regarding EzineArticles I suggest you check them out. I divided it into three parts and is a must read for any article writer who is looking to get both traffic and sales.
The first part is called:
the next part of the guide is
and the last part is more on the 20,000 views I received from EzineArticles
I believe that when it comes to both EzineArticles and Hubpages they are an excellent source of traffic if used right. Hubpages is often overlooked but it shouldn’t be as it has a Pagerank of 6 currently and is relatively easy to rank well in the search engines for even competitive keywords providing you do it right.
