3 Things You Should Demand From Your Article Submission Service

Article marketing is the way to go for free traffic today, but it can be time consuming if you don’t use the tools and technology that is available for you that can save you time. The question to ask yourself when it comes to using these services, is “How much is my time worth?” If your time isn’t worth very much, then you can spend the several days it would take you to submit your article by hand to most of the article directories out there. If your time is worth a lot, then you will not get a very good return on your investment if you sake the time to submit your articles by hand to all of the article directories. So if your time is worth a lot, then you will want to use article submission services that submit your articles for you. There are many submission services out there, so what service should you be using and what features should you demand from your article submission service?

1) Does it Distribute Multiple Versions Of The Same Article?
The search engines are always changing their algorithms, and although there isn’t a penalty for duplicate content, you won’t receive much credit for it either. You can have the same article on different websites, and if enough of the rest of the page is very different, you can get away with placing the same article on different websites, and get credit for it. However, you will want to understand that wherever your article ends up, you have to depend upon the webmaster to make their website different enough to use your article.

The answer to this dilemma is to send out a different version of your article to the different article directories. Writing a different version of the article for each directory takes even more time that submitting to all of the directories by hand. What is the solution? Choose an article submission service that creates a different version for you as it submits it to the different directories. The key in choosing the service is to make sure you are creating quality variations of your article. It defeats the purpose of creating variations if your variations are unreadable and don’t make sense. You would be better off submitting the same version of your article to the different article directories. You want a service that will create a quality variation that still adds value and someone else would want to have on their website.

2) Does it allow you to use HTML in your resource boxes?
The article submission service you use should allow you to the option of using an HTML resource box. The value of having this feature is that you get to increase your link juice for your desired keywords. Instead of linking to your website using your URL, such as http://mywebsite.com. You get to use a keyword to link to your website (such as -my favorite keyword- ). This adds link popularity for your keyword and will increase your chances of being found in the search engines. This is actually huge because if you combine this feature with multiple versions of your articles, you can use one article to build your link popularity with multiple keywords.

3) Does you article submission service give you tools to promote your articles more efficiently?
Does your article submission service give you access to your own personal RSS feed? This is a great way of keeping your readers informed of the articles you are publishing. You can also market your RSS feed to the different feed directories that are out there to give even more exposure to your articles. This should be a standard feature to your article submission service. If it isn’t, look for another one.

Marketing your articles can be a tedious process if you don’t have the right tools or technology. To make the most of your marketing efforts, you want to use an article submission service that gives you the best chance of having your articles be found by the search engines. Using the tips along with other characteristics given in this article will make sure the chances of your articles reaching their target market are increased.

Submit your articles with ease.
