Driving Traffic With Free Article Services

Most MFA (Made for AdSense) sites use free article services to fill their sites with content. I would never recommend you fill your blog with free articles from any of these services because unique content drives traffic. However, one thing you may want to look at is sending a few articles to these services to help drive traffic and links back to your blog.

By making an article available on any of these article services, you let other webmasters reprint your article on their sites. You allow this because at the end of the article, there is a resource box that tells a bit about who you are plus a link back to your blog. If your article is picked up by a lot of sites, the resulting traffic and back links can be significant. Here are a few tips to get maximum benefit from the free article services.

Don’t Publish The Free Article On Your Site

I recommend the article you write for an article service be used for the service only. In other words, don’t publish the article on your site. The reason for this is to avoid the duplicate content plenty. Google places less trust on sites that have nothing but duplicate content. If your article is a hit and is reproduced by a bunch of sites, Google won’t ding you because you didn’t reproduced an article that a hundred other sites reproduced.

Use a Two Part Article

Most webmasters write articles for free articles services to get back links and not traffic. Let’s face it, most users of free articles service don’t get much traffic. However, you can increase the likelihood of a reader clicking on the resource link and visiting your blog if you break your article into two parts – the first part being the free article and the second part on your blog only.

If a reader likes what they read on the site the reproduced your article, then chances are good that he’ll click on the part two link and visit your blog to read the rest.

A Few Articles Sites To Send Your Articles To

The above is not an exhaustive list but it will get you started. You can find more places to submit your articles to by doing a search for Free Articles on Google.
