Article advertising, and sometimes referred to as ‘bum marketing’ because even a bum with no cash can employ this strategy to get visitors and possibly even revenue, is one of the evergreen techniques that have been producing totally free visitors for years and years.

Now the key to article advertising is not exactly what some folks claim, that is to blast your article to thousands of websites. The reason behind this is simply because of the ‘duplicate content’ penalty that will essentially discount a lot of the pages your article is on because there are so numerous other sites using the exact same articles. Distribution to thousands of article directory sites is normally recommended by folks with software programs to market or services to market.
We wish to obtain totally free visitors from the article directories so this implies that we should be targeting the sites with the greatest volume of visitors, which narrows it down to 4 or 5 websites. The rest of the sites joined together almost certainly don’t get 1% of the visitors the others get hold of so it’s fairly safe to discount them.

These sites have a lot of visitors, from folks doing investigation and from pure search engine visitors. They have a really high authority and hence really good search engine positions for even some highly competitive search phrases. You can employ this to your benefit by writing 400 word content tightly targeted around a particular key phrase.
