Don't Blow it - 8 ways people Mess Up articles

By Brent Sweet

If you can write articles correctly you can build a lot of traffic to your website. It is one of the most effective ways to get targeted visitors to your site, but there are some pitfalls and if you dont avoid them your articles are worthless.

The way to have your articles distributed everywhere is to NOT do the following:

Number One: Spelling and grammar errors. Use spell check it is simple, and it will increase the distribution of your article.

Number Two: The article is to share information on a topic, not to promote or build a bunch of hype around yourself. If you want it to be read save all the hype building for the bio box at the end.

Number Three: Inform the reader. If you don't know what you are talking about choose a different topic. People don't read to find out what you don't know.

Number Four: Pick a topic. So many people write articles with several topics. Write one article per subject. Don't write a business opportunity article that also contains information about losing weight.

Number Five: Make use of the title to actually bring people in who are willing to read, not just to be a topic of your article.

Number Six: Don't buy or steal articles. This does no good. You are the only person who writes like you, so write the article yourself you will then receive the benefits.

Number Seven: Use your resource box to promote yourself, sure, but don't over do it. Do not promote four or five different sites. Promote the site related to your topic.

Number Eight: Make each submission different. Get the most value out of your article, make each submission different so that more and more webmasters will publish it. - 16651
