How to Write High Traffic Online Articles

by , under Article Marketing

Unique Article Wizard

We write or post articles online because we want people to read them right?

Of course you do….you write the articles hoping they get a high amount of traffic so the world can instantly discover what your website has to offer.

Sometimes this can be easier said than done.

Try these tips and see if you get higher amounts of traffic from every article you post online.

1) Write great titles using keyword research - Knowing what your readers want prior to writing the article will certainly bring higher traffic.

2) Use the appropriate amount of keywords in the body of any given article you write - A safe number would be about 2-3% so if you have a 500 word article, the body should contain the keyword approximately 10 to 15 times.

3) Write for the reader 1st and the search engine 2nd - This is an oldie but still a goody.

4) Write as if you were talking directly to your readers – It’s ok to use the term “you” or “I” and “me”

5) Write to create the light bulb effect – If you really want to get high amounts of traffic from your article you need to be seriously helping your readers with the information you’re sharing. When your reader is finished reading the article you want them to fully understand the message and say “ah-ha…now I get it!”

6) Write shorter articles when possible – People sometimes enjoy reading books but when it comes to online articles they prefer to skim through material and would rather read shorter more defined articles. If the article is above 500 words be sure to use a lot of spacing and bold text pointers to break up some of the monotony.

7) Make your point quickly then back it up – Try to get the most important stuff out at the beginning of the article and use the latter half to back up your message.

8) Use images and video when appropriate – When video and image is appropriately added to online articles it can go along way in terms of delivering high amounts of website traffic. Just be sure the images and videos are properly optimized for search.

9) For WordPress Blog Posts – Download  and activate the Platinum SEO Plugin. This plugin makes it easy to add keywords for the search engines to find your article. It also allows you to decide if you want the article to be “nofollow” or “dofollow”. It can be customized to fit your needs and when configured properly will help to draw tons of traffic to your articles.

10) Add social bookmarking buttons to your article – Place a few buttons at the end of your article in clear view so your readers may share it if they enjoyed it. There are thousands of social bookmarking sites out there and more are popping up everyday. They all have buttons you can place on your article to share it with their readers. Some of the bigger sites such as Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon and Delicious have seriously high traffic counts on a daily basis. If it’s a great article they could easily send two hundred or a thousand readers to your article at any given time.

These are just some of the steps you can take.

Writing articles online is a skill that must be learned over time. It’s hard to become an expert in one day but practice certainly can make it perfect.

In the end…..it all comes down to how well you satisfied your reader’s thirst for knowledge.

Perfect the art of giving the reader what they’re searching for in a clear and precise manor while using the tips above and you will soon find yourself writing high traffic online articles.

Is Mass Article Submission Considered Spamming?

by , under Article Marketing


I’m sure some of you are already well aware of what a good article marketing campaign can do for your website traffic as well as your conversions.

Mass article submission is still the most effective and cost efficient method used by serious online marketers to draw traffic to a website or sales page. It’s not considered spamming if you submit a totally unique article to each different directory. In fact, when used properly, you can raise PageRank and gain hundreds or thousands of new one-way back links in a very short period of time. The idea itself is genius and can help you earn your name and your living online as long as you do it responsibly. Don’t sweat it too much though….it’s easier than you think. You only need to know how to read, write and follow procedure.

In simplest terms… using the program you will:

(1) Do some drill down keyword research to make sure you are targeting a profitable phrase or market with your titles. Essentially you want your titles to be really good long tailed keywords with low competition.

(2) Next, you’ll write a few compelling articles related to your site or product and enter the articles into the mass article distribution software. Always write the best titles and articles you could ever write. Keep in mind that anything you put out there is a representation of your site and your business. Also, be certain to write an outstanding resource box so your readers will be certain to click the link to your site and learn more. You usually don’t get more than a couple sentences for the resource box so make it count and use your keyword(s) for anchor text. It’s usually a good idea to state your name and specialty also.

(3) The program will then automatically re-write those few articles for you and turn them into hundreds or even up to a thousand new articles. It re-writes the articles to firstly keep you from having to write so many and secondly avoid duplicate content and spamming penalties from Google and other major search engines.

(4) Finally, the software will then distribute your articles to hundreds or thousands of article directories and ezines of your choice.

When these steps are all done properly you will have effectively created hundreds if not thousands of valuable and relative one-way backlinks to your site. With new backlinks comes plenty of new visitors to your sales page. Obviously more visitors means more money right?

If you want even more traffic then just simply rinse and repeat.

There comes a time when all business owners and webmasters have to invest in the growth of their online businesses.

The key is to invest in a proven product that’s relatively easy to use and one that actually gets superior results allowing you to focus more on ad copy, conversions and making money. The bottom line is you want a serious amount of backlinks fast without being penalized for spamming or duplicate content.

Basically, Unique Article Wizard is the best I’ve ever been able to find. As far as I know… it’s the best that has ever been created. Many have tried to replicate it but all have failed.

Good luck and happy article marketing!

Where Did You Hang Your Thinking Cap

by , under Article Marketing, Blogging, Business, Everything Else, Internet Marketing, Music Promotion


This will probably show my age but I remember back in the day when somebody said “put on your thinking cap” they really meant “use your mind or your brain”. Think and be creative was the general consensus.

Thinking about what you’re doing before you do it can be tough for some of us because we can’t remember where we last hung our thinking cap. In other words, it’s difficult sometimes to get the creative juices flowing.

I struggle with this problem more than I care to talk about. The thing you have to do when you’ve lost your thinking cap is find something to relax your mind enough to remember where it’s at.

For me it’s cooking. I like to cook. I mean the physical act of standing over the stove and making a meal for me or my family is something that I enjoy. It relaxes my mind and allows me to think. There have been numerous times when I have been cooking a meal and have thought of ideas for song versus, articles, ideas for the website and much more. I know it’s weird but it works for me. It helps the creative side of my mind to show itself.

When I cook I am able to remember where my thinking cap is and use it. There are other things that work for me also but none as well.

The human mind is a wonderful tool not to be underestimated. The problem for most of us is that it only works extremely well some of the time. It’s difficult to harness the power.

Try to find your thinking cap. Put it on and remember where you hang it when you’re finished so you can easily go back and wear it again the next time you need it.

Best Wishes!

Another Avenue To Make Some Online Money

by , under Article Marketing, Everything Else, Internet Marketing


Just wanted to let everybody know that I recently found another avenue for you to make some online money. You will need to visit a site by the name of Bukisa.com. Some of you may or may not have heard of them. Basically the company is set up similar to eHow.com. You write content for them based on the categories they have listed and they pay you for it. I recently set up an account there because I like to write. It looks as though you will start off making money slowly, maybe $15.00 to $25.00 per month but as time goes on and you write more and more articles your pay will pick up. They are basically sharing their ad revenue with you and it seems to be structured aggressively. You get paid by the amount of traffic that visits and reads your content as well as the amount of friends that you refer to Bukisa.  From what I can tell the referrals must come thru your registered email so you can’t just place a link on your site and get paid for referrals but does that really matter?

In talking to other acquaintances of mine who are involved with this company you should be able to get your earnings up to $500.00 a month fairly quick if you stay busy. Other advantages would be that as a publisher your content will get a pretty wide range of publications.  The company will pay you via PayPal. Anybody from any country can register to write at Bukisa as long as you have a valid PayPal account. The articles, however, must be written in English. This should also be an excellent way to brand your identity or business because in your Bukisa public profile you can talk about your business or add a link to your company website. Bukisa’s site currently has a Google PageRank of 4 so this looks like another good quality backlink for your site as well.

So there you have it. Now that you know about this new avenue to make some online money go and make it!

Best Wishes!

Power Your Website With Article Marketing

by , under Article Marketing, Internet Marketing


Article Marketing has the power to take your website to levels you haven’t seen. Many people completely under-estimate the full potential of what it can do for their online business. When done properly article marketing allows you to leave your digital footprint on the world and will drive an amazing amount of traffic to your website for eternity. Notice I said when done properly!

Try to look at it this way. Because of the relative newness of Modern Day Peasants it really didn’t matter what I wrote on this blog in regards to getting my articles placed on the first page of the major search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo and the likes. The website was too new. They won’t let you in that easy, I don’t care if you’re writing award winning articles. I needed to find a stronger avenue to say what I had to say so I looked into writing articles for online article directories such as eHow.com and ArticlesBase.com and of course my favorite Ezine Articles.(You will do very well with the three I have listed and eHow will even pay you to write for them). I knew these companies had been around for quite some time. I also knew they had some pull when it came to page rank because of the amount of back links they have and because of how long they have been in business. Most importantly, I knew that you get to add a link to your website in the resource box. This is where the real power for your website comes in. I’ll explain later in this post.

Next I did my research on how to write a great article and the very first one I wrote landed on Google’s first page out of 322 million pages and it’s still there. I have wrote 20 other articles since then and I will continue to write them. A little over half of those have ended up on the first page out of millions of pages as well.  Getting your articles on the first page needs to be your goal! So far to date those articles have brought somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 visitors to this site. Now you might say that 700 visitors isn’t a lot but when you add those numbers over years it will be thousands and maybe one day millions. I saw a guy the other day who has written over 1500 articles. The average is about three visitors a day per article, so if he has all those pointing to one website he will get 4500 visitors per day just off his article marketing alone. Do you get my point?

Many people think that writing articles is too much work for the amount of visitors they get but those people are not thinking clearly. You write articles to solidify your presence online. Write them in such a manor that they are of great help to people. Use keywords in your title and make sure that you also use those same keywords in the beginning and the end of the article. Sprinkle just two or three in the main body as well and you’ll do fine. Try to stay between 300-750 words and finally leave a link to your website in the resource box in case the reader wants to learn more. If you do a good enough job presenting your case they will click that link and come to see you.

To sum it up if you truly want to leave an impact in the online world then you need to power your website with article marketing.

Best Wishes!

A Great Keyword Tool

by , under Article Marketing, Blogging, Internet Marketing

If your organic traffic is not what you think it should be, consider getting yourself a great keyword tool.  I can’t stress enough that if you don’t do your homework you will not succeed in the business of online marketing. A really good keyword tool will allow you to see what terms and phrases your competition is using to consistently get high volumes of website traffic that you could be getting. It will allow you to decide on certain phrases and words that will be easier to rank in because of less or weaker competition. From there you just need to start marketing toward those certain phrases.

I personally have used and still use SemRush the whole time since I started my website and blog. This program has been very helpful to me because of the stats that I can see. For instance, if I want to research the phrase “skull heads” because maybe my website is going to sell “skull heads” then I would type “skull heads” in the search box minus the parenthesis. The site then proceeds to list out related keywords, CPC, competition, average volume and the trends. Every single time I write an article, no matter if it’s for this blog or another online article source, I always use this keyword tool to help develop my title as well as the other high traffic driving keywords. All you have to do is register for the free version. It works well and you can upgrade and get much deeper into the search terms if you choose. I tried Google’s keyword tool and I still use it sometimes, however, this one seems to give me more results.

The best thing to do is find the search terms and phrases in your niche that have just enough monthly website traffic so you can compete. Obviously if the term has too much traffic or is really high priced for pay per click then you should know it will be tougher to compete for organic traffic as well. Currently I have one paid traffic campaign and it cost $12.00 a month. All of the rest of the traffic for Peasants is free organic traffic. Anybody can do this. You just have to make sure you use every tool at your disposal and be smart about what you’re doing. Don’t put the cart before the horse so to speak.

Get yourself a great keyword tool and do your research. Help your website, blog or e-business succeed.

Best Wishes!

Make Money Between Gigs Writing Articles Online!

by , under Article Marketing, Music Promotion

computer pictureI’m just guessing but I bet some of you musicians if not all of you have some pretty good writing skills. If you’re coming up short between gigs you should consider writing some articles online. There are people out there making as much as $1,000.00 a month doing this on the side. Some make much more than that. The average seems to be about $200.00 a month but that doesn’t mean you can’t step it up a little bit. Just don’t party so much at the previous night’s gig. If you write a little more than the average Joe you should easily be able to earn $300.00 to $500.00 a month. That’s a car payment and maybe more! The beautiful thing about it is you don’t have to be a musician to write although lots of musicians are pretty good at it. Maybe you’re a teacher or a daycare provider. What ever you do for a living, we just wanted to let you know that you can make a little to a lot of extra cash on the side just by sitting down at your home computer and writing articles. One of the most popular that comes to mind is eHow. With eHow you would write articles about how to do something. I’m going to give you a link to their website at the bottom of the page. You can check them out and see what you think. It certainly can’t hurt to make a little more money every month. If you have a PayPal account they will deposit your earnings directly to your account every month. If you don’t have a PayPal account you will need to set one up. Who doesn’t have a PayPal account anyway?

Ok… so the point here is to make some extra money and this is just one more way to do it. As previously stated there are many websites around that are willing to pay you to write for them. I chose to talk about eHow because of their reputation.

Go make some money today!
