I've been working with a business owner to build up content on his website. The site has been in existence since B.C. and hasn't changed much in that period.

It's been the epitome of static and as such has very few inbound links. Step1 was to get some new content in place onsite. We now have that in the form of a super FAQ page and a couple highly relevant and lengthy articles. And more to come. The site has been indexed and the new pages show. My heart palpitrates... perhaps fibrulates...

Next order of business is to build some inbound links. I plan to research some relevant business-specific listing directories, but also to look into the myriad of sources (web 2.0 sites, etc) for posting articles. I sort through and select a variety of article submission and 'link wheeling' sites which seem relevant.

Onto the chicken and the egg. We have posted some 'master' articles on his website, some probably 2500 words in length. Is it viable and/or SEO smart to grab some of these articles and rewrite them (with a twist), shorten them, etc so that we can post them to some of these other sites and not be in conflict as duplicate content? Potentially we could come up with several variations.

Or maybe this is a question of balance?

Article sites, IMO, are useless these days, so no, it's not worthwhile to do that.

Basically any link you can get yourself is not what google is looking for.

I have a question Jill regarding on article writing. I am planning to do a massive writing for my client's website. But I have no blogs to post those articles and article directories are the first to come to my mind.

What should I do? Should I make a free blog so that I could have some place to put those articles?

What are your recommendations for that? I would love to hear it. :)

What is the reason for writing the articles?

The reason why I want to write articles is to drive traffic for my website.

If they're not on your site, how would they draw traffic to it?
