Common Article Marketing Mistakes: Mistake #1 Not Doing Keyword Research (It’s An Easy Fix!)

Recently I was telling you about the 17 most common article marketing mistakes, and the very first one we listed was the mistake of not doing any keyword research before starting to submit articles.

I know that just hearing the words “keyword research” sounds incredibly boring and cerebral to some, but I assure you that it’s really not as hard as it sounds. Really, anyone can do basic keyword research by just using Google’s free keyword research tool.

For those who are totally new to article marketing, let’s start at the beginning:

Competitive Niche? How To Market Your Site With Articles (Even In A Competitive Field!)

Competitive Niche? How To Market Your Site With Articles (Even In A Competitive Field!)

Overcoming stiff competition ...

Overcoming stiff competition …

Here was a question a reader asked recently:

You have so much on your blog…. can you write a post on how to overcome stiff competition to get up top of Google? I have an anxiety web site that is loaded with good content about the topic.

I’m not sure what I could have been doing wrong – or less effectively than I could.  I figured I could have done something wrong with keywords or poor site design, as that was when people said “load your site with keywords”.

I wasn’t doing article marketing all that time, only in the past few years. My newer site, now about 3 years old, is in the same boat although things were picking up when I started using your service. Still not great though. Any suggestions? I know keyword choice is a biggie, but I also heard that Google no longer weighs them as they once did. I’m not sure what to ask you, but hopefully you can find a secret need hidden in my post.

Thanks so much for your excellent question. There are some very important things that you need to do to make headway in the search engine rankings. The things that you would do for a competitive niche are basically the same things that you would for any niche, only for a competitive niche you need to be more patient and conscientious about your marketing efforts.

At least you’ve covered the most important part–having a site with excellent content on it! Now, you just need to market your site. I know that marketing your site can be confusing, and I’d like to help.

Here are 3 article marketing tips that are absolutely crucial to overcoming stiff competition in Google:

Local Business Article Marketing: How To Market A Local Business With Free Reprint Articles (It May Surprise You!)

Local Business Article Marketing: How To Market A Local Business With Free Reprint Articles (It May Surprise You!)

Over the last few posts we’ve been addressing a question I received from a local business owner who had created a website only to find that it wasn’t receiving any search traffic.

The problem was that when his potential customers did searches, the pages of his website were not showing up in the results pages. He wanted to know a cost effective way to get the pages of his local business website listed on Google’s front page.

If you haven’t already, I’d like to direct you to read the previous two posts (I’ll give links to those at the end of this post), because we’ve been building upon this idea of what is actually going on when you market your website and how that influences where the pages of your site show up in search engine rankings.

The person who originally asked the question wanted a marketing tool that would help his site get on Google’s front page without spending a bundle, and I recommended article marketing. Assuming you approach it in the right way, the results are reliable, and you get to be actively involved in marketing your own site.

As I was telling you previously, it’s no longer so effective to only submit articles to article directories, which is why (for our Gold Level) we also publish member content on a network of third-party owned blogs, which can build up some powerful in-bound links to your site, and help to give you a well-balanced link profile.

How do you actually do the article marketing though, if you are marketing a local business website?

Article Marketing Strategies – Writing That Addresses Your Audience Directly

Article Marketing Strategies – Writing That Addresses Your Audience Directly

Recently I likened writing free reprint articles to being a rock star at a live performance. You have such a large potential audience that it can be difficult to know where to focus your attention.

Even when rock stars are performing for an audience of tens of thousands of screaming fans, I’ve often heard it said that they’ll pick out one person in the audience to sing or play to. Singling one person out helps them to “connect” with their audience in a way that playing to a massive group of people can’t.

It’s the same with writing articles for the internet. You may think, “Anyone in the world could be looking at my article. How can I make it sound personal and not like I’m a professor lecturing to a huge classroom full of students?”

Today we’ll go over a few strategies you can use to write articles that address specific questions that people in your target audience are wondering.

Article Marketing Success: Is 3 Articles Too Soon To See Results In Google?

Article Marketing Success: Is 3 Articles Too Soon To See Results In Google?

I received this question from a reader recently. He says:

I have submitted 3 articles as a bit of a trial to see if article marketing works. In testing exact phrase key word results for each article, I am not seeing the results I was hoping for. What can I do to see better performance with my articles?

That is an excellent question and actually a quite common one. Basically what you want to know is, “Can I see results after submitting just one or two articles optimized around a particular keyword phrase?”

I know the thought pattern behind that–you’ve heard that it’s important to get a high ranking for the keyword terms associated with your website and that article marketing is very effective at helping you do that. So, you have it in mind that you can just submit an article on each of your keyword phrases, and then you would see an immediate impact in the rankings.

It’s actually a bit more complicated than that, and I’d like to give you more information about what you can expect when you start to submit articles and where you should look to measure your results.

SEO Article Marketing: How to Ensure That Your Target Market Is Reading Your Articles

SEO Article Marketing: How to Ensure That Your Target Market Is Reading Your Articles

I received this question recently:

I’ve been faithfully writing and submitting articles for the past few months. One thing that I wonder though is how can I know for sure that it’s my target readers who are reading my articles and not just a random collection of people?

That’s a great question, and I’m sure that other people are wondering this as well. You are writing your articles for a certain type of person, hoping that the people who have the best chance of potentially buying your products or enlisting your services are reading your articles.

You don’t really want to have every Tom, Dick and Harry stopping to read your article (not that it does any harm if they do), but what you’re really interested in is having a very specific type of person read your article and visit your website.

How can you be sure that it’s those special people who are drawn to your articles?

Article Marketing Strategies: How To Increase Website Traffic

Article Marketing Strategies: How To Increase Website Traffic

I get questions from newcomers all the time. Maybe you can relate to this one:

We are trying to increase the traffic going to our website using articles. How many people can we expect to be reading our articles? Do you think article marketing can help us?

Most website owners only know one thing when they start to market their site: that they need to increase traffic to their website.

The rest can be more than a little fuzzy. You’ve probably heard that an effective and user friendly way to market your website is to submit articles, but the particulars are not that clear. I’d like to take this blog post and explain a few basics for newcomers who are considering using article marketing:

SEO Article Writing: 5 Reasons Why Keyword Research Is Addictive!

SEO Article Writing: 5 Reasons Why Keyword Research Is Addictive!

I remember the first time I heard the term “keywords”. I was intrigued, but only in the way that you’re intrigued when you hear a brain surgeon talking about how he goes about doing an intricate surgery.

You see, I was under the false impression that “keywords” and doing keyword research were totally dry and cerebral, something that only a very analytical person or a computer would be interested in doing.

Boy, how I was wrong!

I started with a free trial at one of the popular keyword research tools. After getting the lay of the land, I started “doing research”, which sounds very boring but is actually quite fun.

Have you been hearing me talk about “keyword this” and “keyword that” and been thinking “No thanks. I don’t want to deal with that can of worms right now (or ever).”

I want to take this post to spark your curiosity about keyword research–you know, start planting some seeds that may some day grow into a full fledged interest!

Here are 5 reasons why doing keyword research is addictive:
