There are literally hundreds of different ways of driving in targeted traffic to your website, and this report focuses on the easiest and most effective methods. Best of all, they are all 100% free! Article marketing is an exceptional technique at generating a flood of high-quality backlinks to your website quickly and easily. All you really need to get started creating 10‐15 articles that combine your keywords within the titles of each article as well as the actual content.
Every article should be about 300‐400 words in length and whenever possible, try to focus on submitting original, high quality material, or at the very least, well written private label content (although not every article directory will allow private label content to be submitted). Each article is “tagged” with your backlink by creating an author’s resource box that is attached to your article submissions.
Author resource boxes are often the only place where a back‐link is permitted, so you need to ensure that your actual article content is compelling and focused on retaining your readers attention long enough to direct them to your resource box featured at the end of the article. With your article, you need to:
1) Use a clear and direct title that captures attention instantly.
2) Follow it up with the first paragraph clearly describing the topic of your article.
3) Continue with the body weaving a story and doing its job by keeping the visitor reading through to the end.
4) The closing paragraph or statement satisfying the reader with an ending to the story if you choose that style and prompting them to read the resource box below.
5) The resource box then compels the reader to click on a link by offering free information in the form of a free report, eBook, video, tutorial, ecourse or something else, relevant to the topic of your article. With article marketing, the greater the number of articles in circulation, the more exposure you will receive from both your article directory profile and author resource boxes.
Here are the top article directories that you should focus on submitting content to:

On‐Site SEO involves manually optimizing every page on your website, from its title tag, keywords used within content to the way that your site map or overall structure is created. All the work on‐site SEO takes place directly on your website and is in your full control. When it comes to on‐site SEO, there are very important factors regarding the actual structure and anatomy of your website that you need to pay special attention to in order to effectively optimize your website for top search engine rankings
Title Tags (per page) Meta Description Site Map Inclusion
A title tag should include a description of what your website is about, rather than just including your website’s URL, you should always incorporate your primary keyword phrase into the title tags of each web page you own.
Header Tags also play an important part in search engine optimization, because by using head tags within your website’s content, you are able to highlight important text on your website, ensuring that search engine spiders pay special attention to the text contained within these head tags.
Another especially important element to SEO is including a site map on your website. What a site map does is helps both visitors and search engine spiders navigate their way throughout your pages and categories, by outlining all the different areas of your site. You can create a sitemap very easily by using free services such as: http://www.XML‐Sitemaps.com
When it comes to developing your content so that you are optimizing your website for the search engines, you should pay attention to keyword proximity, prominence as well as the order of your content itself. The prominence of your keyword is based on the first instance of where it appears within your content. A keyword phrase that is used at the end of your content will be considered less relevant than a keyword phrase that appears in the first portion of your content or article.
This means that you need to ensure that you implement your primary keyword phrases into the first half of your content, so that it is given more weight when search engine spiders index your website. Keyword proximity is also important in terms of search engine rankings because it indicates to the search engines that these keywords are related to one another. With off‐site SEO, you are focusing on building solid back links to your website, as the more incoming links to your site from quality, relevant websites, the more authority your website is given in the search engines.
Place emphasis on the quality of your incoming backlinks rather than the quantity of backlinks you have. While the more backlinks in circulation, the better, if you have more backlinks coming in from solid, established and authority websites, they WILL carry more weight than those pointing to your site from start‐up websites and blogs.
You also want to try to create a backlink campaign that has ONE WAY backlinks, where you are not required to provide a reciprocal link, as it will add more value to the backlinks pointing to your site.

2) You explore and read the blog and then you make an insightful, useful or relevant comment to the post that is likely to be approved by the blog’s administrator.
3) Include your backlink with relevant anchor text on the blog.
4) Rinse & Repeat
