Promote Your Blog With An Article Directory

By Craig Andrews

Have you ever plugged a topic in a search engine and found the results brought you to an article in an article directory? If so, then you probably realize the value of these directories so why not get into the game yourself?

Article directories remain one of the most valuable resources on the net for building traffic to a blog or website. In fact, if you are looking to increase traffic to your blog submitting a sample of your work to an article directory may be one of the best and easiest way to draw in that traffic. The process for submitting a promotional article to an article directory is usually quite easy and can be done in a very short period of time. So, let's examine the steps!

Usually, an article directory has certain standards for quality and length but these standards are not outrageous. Basically, if your article submission is of decent length (say 250 - 600 words), is well written and provides value to the readers of the directory then it will usually be approved for inclusion. While these article directories do not pay for submissions they allow the writer to include links in the article to their blog or website. This is where the traffic comes from both in terms of direct traffic or increased search engine ranking.

When your article submission is approved notifications may go out to subscribers of the directory or it may become part of the directory's RSS feed. This will lead to a ton of readers hitting on your article submission and, in most likelihood, will click on the links you provided in the article. Needless to say, this will bring significant traffic to your blog.

Of course, the more article directories you submit to and the consistency that you employ will quantify your blog traffic. So, if you write 3 short original articles a week and submit them to three article directories (sometimes you can "spin" one article into variations of it so that you have three original versions of the same article) Again, the process is not complicated and it usually will result in excellent traffic to your blog.
