and my latest -
I do submit articles as well, but do it myself (cheaper) and the traffic results are always quite consistent depending upon who picks-up the articles. Search engines like them too - I wrote one on USP's (unique selling propositions) and it put me on the first page of almost all the engines! That's good stuff!
Thank you in advance -

If it's that bad, I can take it -

The second one? Well, No offence, but I kinda couldn't be bothered. It started too wishy washy, and I had no real incentive to read on. I am no pro @ copywriting, but I reckon that you should be a bit clearer in the point of your article right up front.
is more than just a few keywords...
Is your website broken?
Is not really telling me what the article is about, nor convincing me I really need to read this article. Use the first paragraph to sell me on why I must read this article, and what is in it for me.
Also, why do these articles exist? Do you want me to sign up for a newsletter? If you write a bit, consider starting one. If poeple like your stuff, they may sign up!
Just my , and given the exchange ratem, that isn't a heck ofa lot

I write these periodic articles to assist businesses online, hopefully getting them thinking and pointing them in the right direction.
I agree that the Title of the second one could be more clear - subliminally I was also trying to imbed the point of "owning your category online" and some of what it takes to do that. As I read back over that article, I agree with you, and since I run my articles by only a few people before publishing it, maybe I'll start having them reviewed here first as well - my proofers are not from this industry and that too has it's value.
They exist to assist, they also drive some traffic (qualified to a degree), these distributed articles also build our incoming links, and yes, I do have a newsletter but leave it out (in articles) as some sites will not publish them if I sell myself too strongly. I also hope they help establish some credibility...? Why? - Because I have been working on a book, and upon completion hope to have supporters and buyers.
Hence: "If poeple like your stuff, they may sign up!"
BTW - The exchange rate for this kind of input is highly valued here, and I appreciate your taking the time. Your input is exactly the type I was looking for -
Your 2 cents equals better articles as I continue to grow - Thanks again.

You may have received more reads if you gave us a little snippet of what the articles were about, in your first post. Many of us just don't bother to go "blindly" to an article as we don't know if it will be of interest.

Sorry, I read your first article yesterday and thought it was good. In fact, this morning as I was taking my son to school we saw a truck with advertising on its side and I thought, hmmm. I just didn't have time to post and didn't have time to read your second article.

I'll do that next time.
And thank you lisety for your kind words as well.
