Writing for article directories is a great way to get one way links back to your website and has the potential of getting you noticed in places on the internet that you might not have even thought about.
You see when you write an article and submit it to a directory, you will include a byline with a link to your website. These articles are free for anyone to take from the directory and post on their website as long as your byline is included. Many bloggers and website owners look for quality articles on these sites to fill their site with content.
I’ve been asked too many times to count ‘Why would I just give my work away for free?’ Honestly though you aren’t just giving it away you are building links and possibly future relationships with other websites and blogs. It will be of benefit to you in the end.
The most important thing to remember is to write a quality article. You’ll want to put your best out there. Make sure you proofread your article. Many of the article directories have editors and will reject your article if it’s something you just threw together. Besides the better the article the more chance it will be used on other sites in turn bringing you more back links and potential visitors.
Here are a few places for you to get started with:
The other plus side to these sites is that you can get content for your website or blog there as well. This is great not only to build content and pages for you but if you are having one of those days when that blinking cursor is just laughing telling you are you have no idea what to write about you can go grab a quick article knowing that you are helping someone else out with their internet quest as well. 🙂
