Article Directories, Social Bookmarking & Networking Sites and Your Articles

To attract more readers reading your articles it is necessary to:

Submit your articles to article directories
Bookmark your articles at social bookmaking and networking sites.

Article Directories:

To direct traffic to your site submit some of your original articles to the following article directories where their Traffic Rank are high:

Ezinearticles (254)
HubPages (595)
ArticlesBase (1759)

There is a resource box at the end of an article that you can include a link to your website. When readers are interested to read more of your articles they will click the link and go directly to your site. By adding a link to your blog you have actually created a one-way link to your website.

Social bookmarking and networking sites:

Here are some of the social bookmaking sites that you should bookmark your articles:

Technorati (457)
Mixx. (673)
Digg (284)

You can even bookmark you articles at social networking sites such as:

Facebook (5)
Twitter (599)
Bebo (97)
MySpace (7)
LinkedIn (192)

Remember that there is link juice to your website for each and every article that you bookmark. By bookmaking your articles you are also updating your friends by telling them what you are dong now - writing and posting new articles.


Submitting articles to article directories should be done selectively. Choose your popular articles to entice readers to visit your site. Sending too many articles will defeat the purpose. When readers can read most of you articles in full somewhere else there is no incentive to visit your site any more.

On the other hand bookmaking your articles at social bookmaking and networking sites should be done extensively if not all of your articles because at the social bookmarking and networking sites there are only links or snippets of your actual articles. When readers are attracted to read your full articles they will have to go directly to your site.

A catchy title, with the right key words plus matching and unique content will make readers want to visit your site to read your compelling articles.

  1. Interesting post. Will take a note of this.

    I was browsing through the Internet a few days back to check out for social bookmarking service providers and came across seo traffic spider. I have used their service and found it the best so far. They communicate promptly with their clients and do a perfect job and meet requirements. I thought this information may be helpful for those looking our for professional SEO services and this would save them the time to research on the best and affordable service providers.

  2. Wonderful learn, I just handed this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on that. And he really bought me lunch as a result of I discovered it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! Anyway, in my language, there aren’t much good supply like this.
