Submitted Articles To Aggregators
Posted 05 December 2003 - 02:12 PM
How much benefit/traffic increase can be expected by posting articles on the aggregation sites?
Posted 05 December 2003 - 02:30 PM
For me personally, I see about 1/3 of my leads coming from articles I've written and submitted.
Now, not all of them are going to the aggregation sites. My list of publishers includes syndicates, individual ezine publishers, information sites (like About.com) and some other sources like IdeaMarketers.com, etc.
My contact page has a section for the visitor to tell me how they found my site. From my tracking of this, roughly 33% come from SEs, 33% come from articles, 20% come from referrals and 14% don't say.
Hope that helps!

Besides this having articles published increases the backlinks to your site which increases your link popularity!
The problem then is finding the time to write! Hard to do if you are already busy with work. The last article I wrote I did so on a plane on my way to ride the tallest, fastest roller coaster in the world at Cedar Point. I had nothing else to do so I wrote. I have had many ideas since but have not found the time to put them on paper yet. Oh well.

Yesterday I was just checking some serps in google and happened to put in SEO copy, when lo and behold, what did I see?
One of Karon's Articles on like 8 different sites, totally dominating the results! She had 7 or 8 or something of the top 20 listings for that phrase.
How's that for value?

Her sweet innocent act is obviously...well...just an act!
YOU GO GIRL!

We have a monthly newsletter.... is there a way that we can get this submitted through some source or funnel that will then send it out to all appropriate media?
Is that what the prior post was referring to with "aggregator"

Another useful process is to issue News Releases when a new Newsletter is issued. I have picked up useful extra traffic this way.

And what about duplicate publication of articles? What if someone wants exclusive publishing rights to an article? Is that rare? What are the SEO implications of having an article "all over" the Web?
(I haven't really got to the point where I've started looking yet, hence the dumb questions, but I thought maybe it would be constructive to start off asking them here...)

Apparently you guys are far ahead of the curve.... far ahead....
Since this thread started on this subject... can someone please explain not necessarily all the mechanics, but at least a primer?
This would be an excelent resource to be pinned for newbies like myself.
How about just starting with:

Why use an RSS feed
Thank you all !!

As an afterthought - we generally realease a single page article - we call it a newsletter but it is a page.
Our clients love receiving it because it focuses on careers while we are a retailer of neckties - (dont ask.... but there is a connection)
Could you expand on article submission services?
We would love for some business magazines to pick up one of our - news/articles??

Perhaps Jill or someone else might be able to find where this now exists. It was an excellent intro.
++How To Get Your Web Site Content Syndicated++
Two of my fellow moderators from the Ihelpyou Forums
<http://www.ihelpyous...ces.com/forums>, Kalena Jordan and Dan Thies,
recently went through the process of setting up a syndicated news feed
for Kal's site so that her articles and blog entries could start
getting picked up by many of the big news sources on the Net. They
learned a lot along the way and were nice enough to share what they
learned in the following guest article.
You may remember Dan from his "Search Engine Fast Start" book
<http://www.highranki....com/faststart> and the interview I did with
him in June <http://www.highranki...14.htm#stuff>. You'll
also remember Kalena from the excellent coverage she gave us of the
Search Engine Strategies conference in Sydney, Australia
<http://www.highranki...htm#seonews2>. Kal is the CEO
of Web Rank Ltd. <http://www.high-sear...ne-ranking.com> and was
one of the first search engine optimization experts in Australasia.
As you can imagine, Dan and Kal make quite the dynamic duo! Please
give them a warm Advisor welcome.

How do you go about assembling a good collection of article aggregators, syndicates, info sites, and the like?
I assembled mine over the last 4 years. It takes time to find sites that accept article submissions. You can do a search or visit places like EzineLocater.com. They have a directory of ezine publishers and one aspect is that they list who accepts articles and who does not.
Are there guidelines for submission on these sites?
Yes, and just about all of them are different. Makes for a real pain in the butt experience sometimes
Is there a directory of them somewhere?
Mmm... not that I know of. There are directories of ezines and many of those (ezines) will accept guest articles, but I don't know of a directory of sites/publishers who accept articles.
You could type in something like "ezine article submission" in an engine and see what you come up with.
A couple of sites that distribute articles to their own visitors include:
And what about duplicate publication of articles?
It's not only allowed, but expected.
What if someone wants exclusive publishing rights to an article? Is that rare?
Yeah, and when it does happen, most of the time it's for a limited period of time. Many just want to *publish* it first (so it's not overused), but after they release it, you're free to use it wherever.
What are the SEO implications of having an article "all over" the Web?
Wonderful! Builds link pop.
Could you expand on article submission services?
You write a non-promotional, valuable article. You include a short 3- or 4-line "ad" (called a resource box) at the end. The article submission service sends it out (or you send it out yourself). It winds up all over everywhere. You get more business because you're the feature article in ezines and on sites.
<pant, pant> OK, I think that's the gist of it
