3 Ways to Get More Authors to Your Blog
There are three ways to approach getting more authors to your website. They are: the freeway, the expensive way and the submission route. We’ll address the latter in this article. When you use article marketing or write articles for the web, you can expect to attract some search engines traffic. If you write about topics people are searching for, chances are someone will be looking for information on that topic and might end up at your website.
The best thing about article marketing is that you can position yourself as a knowledgeable expert. One way to do that is to submit articles to well respected directories. Directories are very strict when it comes to author requirements and guidelines and you will have to meet certain criteria. Submitting to these directories is one of the best ways to get listed in the search engines.
Another great way to position yourself as an expert in your niche is to provide fresh content. Search engines love new articles. In fact, search engines love all new content – period! They will often times re-spider and re-publish your articles to get them fresh and keep you in the search engines. This is a cost effective way to get ranked for your keywords.
Finally, there is the submission route. This is probably my favorite way to get targeted traffic to my site. It offers a plethora of benefits and provides me with a steady stream of new potential customers. I love writing articles because they offer fresh, unique content and readers love content – especially if it’s informative.
The search engines love fresh, unique content so it’s a great place to start. Simply create content that the search engines would like and get ready to place it in the search engines. Submit the articles to article directories to get the exposure you need.
The final and arguably most important way to get more authors to your squeeze page is to utilize social media. There are tons of social media tools that allow you to easily create and syndicate your squeeze pages. I use Facebook and Twitter mainly but any good social media tool will work. The trick is to place a Facebook button on your squeeze page. Place a Twitter hash tag on all of your squeeze pages.
When people post on Facebook and Twitter about your articles they will drive traffic to your website. You can use these social media tools as a means to get people to sign up to your list. Once they’re on your list you can email them with all your latest releases. The bottom line is that you need to leverage the power of social media in all of your online marketing efforts.
These are just a couple of ways you can go about article marketing and getting more traffic. I suggest starting out simple and just continue to build your list as you progress. Focus on quality over quantity and you’ll be successful. Remember, the internet is an ever-changing thing and nothing happens overnight so just ride it out. If you need help with article marketing I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The third way you can increase the number of authors to your site is to write original articles and submit them to article directories. Submit your articles to article directories that are ranked highly in Google. Write keyword-optimized articles and add a resource box at the bottom of the article that backs up your claim. This is a great way to gain back links to your site as well as create new content for your readers to enjoy reading. Just remember to do this once a week and you’ll soon see results.
Another great way to increase the number of visitors to your blog is to start a discussion on blogs throughout the Internet. Start a discussion regarding the same topic you are discussing on your website or your blog. You can do this through email, blog comments, forum posts and even through twitter questions. Be sure to do this with several different blogs so you can gain back links and traffic. Try to keep the conversation going within several weeks to get maximum results.
Finally, another good way to increase the authors to your site is to participate in the WarriorForum Forums. To increase your exposure on the WarriorForum community you should be active, creative and informative. Participating in Warrior Forum’s will also help you to build relationships with other forum members and the authoring community. The last way to get more articles published and increase traffic to your site is to simply get out there!
