Increase Blog Traffic Via Article Writing

Yes, you have heard this a thousand times before, if you want to increase traffic to your site you have to write articles and submit them to article sites. Maybe you never thought about writing articles to increase your blog traffic.

Most often people will write articles to bring in traffic to their affiliate program or some other site where they can make money when someone visits. Again this is a great tactic to increase traffic, but is it more effective to use article writing to promote your blog?

When someone is promoting an affiliate program through article writing you will quite often find that the article is just a review of the product or a "re-hashed" version of the salespage. People do not want this.

They want content.

Every time you create a post within your blog, you are essentially writing an article. This is where you have a great opportunity. Why not expand on your blog post, turn it into an article, and then submit it to an article site.

The most important factor when you write an article is the bio box, this is where you can leave a snippet of information about yourself plus include a link to your blog.

So how will this increase my blog traffic?

This method will increase your blog traffic in a few ways. First off your article has a better chance of ending up with a high rank in search engines due to the high page rank of article sites. More than likely your blog doesn't have enough "authority" to get your posts ranked highly in the search engines. The second way is through distribution. Article sites allow other people to take your article and post it on their website as long as the bio box is kept intact. People looking to add content to their websites will take your article, add it to their site and give you more exposure to your blog.

Next time when you decide to write a post on your blog, why not expand the post into an article and submit it to an article site. This is a sure fire way to increase your blog traffic.

Alexa Internet, is a California-based subsidiary company of that is best known for operating a website that provides information on the web traffic to other websites.
Alexa collects information from users who have installed an “Alexa Toolbar,” allowing them to provide statistics on web site traffic, as well as lists of related links. It uses these data to form Alexa ranking. There is some controversy over how representative Alexa’s user base is of typical Internet behavior. If Alexa’s user base is a fair statistical sample of the internet user population, Alexa’s ranking should be quite accurate. A known source of bias is the self-selecting, opt-in nature of Alexa traffic tracking software installation, but the significance of this bias on rankings is not reported. Alexa ranking measures traffic ranking collected from Alexa toolbar users. High alexa ranking has no relationship with high google ranking, yahoo ranking, and etc.
Ranking in Alexa is significant as it can significantly increase your bargaining power when it comes to selling advertising on your site. If advertisers see that your site has a higher ranking, they are likely to think that they can sell more of their products and services by having a link on your site. This means that you can charge them higher fees for that link.
