Free Website Traffic Through Article Promotion

Posted on September 23, 2018 in Uncategorized

What is Article Promotion? Article promotion is a great way to attract quality traffic to your website. It consists on publishing articles that you have written on subjects tightly related to your website’s niche, and allowing the free distribution rights on these articles to anyone that may want to use them as content on their own site as long as they remain intact. These articles will be branded with a link back to your website.

Why does Article Promotion Work? Article promotion works great because the small amount of effort that it takes to write an article can have huge payoffs in the form of link popularity and qualified traffic. Visitors of the websites that pick up your articles will read through them, and if you have done a good job of getting their attention and interest, then they will follow the link to your site at the bottom of the article searching for more great information.

How To Start Your Own Article Promotion Campaign Starting an article promotion campaign is very straight forward. First of all you need to figure out what kind of people you want visiting your website (your market). Once you know who you want to attract it will become easier to see what kind of topics they will be more likely to read about. If you sell motorcycle helmets on your website, you might want to attract bikers; an article on “10 things your helmet must have” would be great! You can also write about related stuff like motorcycle history, biker culture, leather ware, etc…

So you know who you are writing to and you know what you are writing about. Take some time to get an outline together and jot down the points you want to touch on. This will help you stay organized and it will make your article easier to read. Make sure you keep your topic narrow so that you or your readers don’t get overwhelmed with the amount of information to cover.

Now that you have your outline in place it is time to write your article. Usually if you have made a well detailed outline, you should aim at writing one to two paragraphs for each line item. Remember to include an introduction that tells the reader what you are going to talk about, and a conclusion that restates the most important points in your article. Do not include any links to your website in the body of the article, this will work against you in the long run.

Cool! Your article is almost ready to roll. Now is the time to put the link back to your page in place. The reason why I told you not to link to your own page from your article is that most website owners don’t like to publish articles loaded with self promotion. If you include links to your own site in the body of your article it becomes a little bit of a sales letter in disguise, and this is not our goal. The bottom of the article should be used as an “About the Author” box. Write a little bit (around 250 characters) about yourself, but most importantly invite the reader to click to your website.

In order for this box to be effective you must keep your ego stroking to the minimum and use this text to call the reader to action. Give your readers a good reason to click to your website. The following examples will show you how your about boxes should look.

Bad Example – What Not To Do My name is John Doe, I have been riding motorcycles my whole entire life. I grew up in Mississippi but then I moved up north to New York. I started my website JohnDoesBikeHelmets.com because I thought I could make me some money. Visit my site today!

The Good: John Doe has a call to action: “Visit my site today!”.

The Bad: Although he has a call to action, he does not provide a valid reason to visit his site.

The Ugly: Nobody really cares about John Doe’s life, including biographical information is a waste of about box space. JohnDoesBikes.com is neither a hyperlink, nor a full URL. People looking for helmets are probably not looking for JohnDoesHelmets.

Better Example – Do This, You Might Get Some Traffic If you are looking for motorcycle helmets you must visit my website today at [http://www.JohnDoesBikeHelmets.com] Tired of looking for a helmet online, stop banging your head against the wall! Especially if you are not wearing one of JohnDoe’s Helmets!

The Good: Some personality comes through. Call to action. Live hyperlink and full URL.

The Bad: Although the URL is live now, it will still not serve a purpose because most likely people are not looking for JohnDoesBikeHelmets when they search for helmets on search engines.

The Ugly: There is no real reason why a reader should click on the link. No benefits have been pointed out.

Best Example –Do This If You Want To Get Loads Of Traffic From Your Articles! Hey! John Doe here. Looking for high quality, affordable, cool-looking helmets? You are in luck! My slick looking Motorcycle Helmets will not only save you tons of money, but will also save your life! Get 15% off your purchase with code: CoolHelmets

The Good: Lots of benefits, great incentive to click on link by adding a discount code, excellent linking technique by using anchor words people will actually be searching for on search engines.

The Bad: The search term “Motorcycle Helmets” can be very competitive and will probably not rank as high in search engines as a less competitive term such as “Custom Painted Motorcycle Helmets”

The Ugly: Some article directories don’t allow anchor text on about box links. If that is the case, just place a full live URL.

So far so good. You have a market, you know what your market wants to read about, you have written something to them and you gave them a reason to click into your website. Great job! Now we need to get your article published by many different websites so you get that constant flow of visitors into your site.

In order to let the world know about your articles the best thing you can do is to submit them to article directories. Article directories are websites loaded with free articles. Writers submit their articles and provide them with free content for them to distribute to other website owners who; on the other hand, visit article directories searching for free, easy content for their sites. They get free content, you get free publicity. It is a win-win situation!

Among the largest article directories that come to mind are:

EZineArticles.com, GoArticles.com, ArticleAlley.com, ArticleDashboard.com, ArticlesBase.com

I highly recommend that you register for free to each and everyone of the directories above, and that you submit every article you write to them. This should get you a fair amount of traffic. You can always find more article directories if you Google “article directory”.

Super-Charge your Article Promotion Campaign! The following tips will help you make the most of your article promotion efforts:

  • Write at least one article a month, one per week would be ideal.
  • Submit each article to at least five directories, ten is even better.
  • Use the keywords that you want to rank for in the title of your article.
  • Change your about box in every article directory, making sure to change the anchor text to keywords related to the main keyword you want to rank high on.
  • When it comes to titles, think outside the box. Catchy and long works better than short and dull.

Cowboy Boots For Men

Posted on September 7, 2018 in Uncategorized

Whoever said that women were the only ones who could afford to be choosy about their footwear, while the guys would wear drab stuff all their lives. In recent times, fashion footwear for men has reached an all time high; and the variety of footwear available is simply mind boggling. Then again, keeping in mind the need to look fashionable even in times of bad weather, say during cold winters or rains, boots are the ideal option. In recent times, men’s cowboy boots have made massive leaps in fashion, and we intend to tell you about some of them. In case you are confused about so many choices, or want t know what would suit you the best, here’s the latest about men’s cowboy boots. Read on.

You know that style wise, there are several basic types of cowboy boots, which differ in terms of design. One of course, is the classic Wellington boot, the original cowboy boot. Then again, we have the Hessian boots, with a V-shaped cut in the front part – often lace or tassels are hung from this part, for the old Western look. We have the high heeled Horsemen boots; another similar type is the Cavalier boots, more expensive and the same high heel quality. In general, men’s cowboy boots are available in many varieties – different types of heels, material (pure leather or synthetic or faux materials), colors (from the classic brown to colors such as silver and purple!) and so on. One of the major innovations, of course, since the 1950s has been the change from square toe boots to round toe boots, although the former style has come back strongly in recent years as part of the retro cool fashion.

Then there are ‘cowboys’ for different uses – sports boots, called ‘risk taker’s boots’, Eskimo boots for cold weather. Both of these boots have thick soles and protective pads to protect your feet from sudden injuries/bitter cold climates. Then we have the ‘Executive boots’, ‘Funky Leather’ boots, and Worker’s Hiking Boots.

In general, leather boots are the best, as leather is perhaps the best material to use for men’s cowboy boots. It keeps your feet warm, does not wear out easily, and most importantly for men perhaps, you do not need to clean them that often.

Finally, do you know about Uggs? Well, the same company that wowed the fashion world with its trail blazing, ‘real ugly’ boots for women, endorsed by the likes of Kate Moss and Sarah Jessica Parker, are back, this time with Uggs (!) for men. these boots are remarkable in that they are ‘apparently, and deliberately ugly’, and a throwback to the original cowboy boots, those which were worn first by Australian sheep shearers. Later on, they were taken up by aviators to keep their feet warm, and finally by Australian surfers from the 70s onwards. This time around, the list of endorsers for Uggs goes like this – Justin Timberlake, Harvey Keitel, Ronnie Wood, Brad Pitt and so on. Need we give more encouragement?

Motorcycle Riders – Say GOOD-BYE To Black/Scuff Shoe Marks Caused By Gear ‘Up-Shifting’

Posted on August 22, 2018 in Uncategorized

Although the first motorcycle was invented over a hundred years ago and has seen many major changes since its first inception, one item which seems to have been forgotten and left out of the technology advancement is the motorcycle gear shifter lever.

And, it’s this motorcycle gear shifter lever that, after all these years, has never failed in ruining every motorcyclists’ boots and shoes by leaving those tale-tale ugly black shifter marks on them.

Amazing as it sounds, up until now no one has done anything as far as changing or upgrading the gear shifter lever to prevent this irritating problem – which occurs during gear ‘up-shifting’ actions.

The other problem with the current hard rubber that comes standard on all motorcycle gear shifters is that many motorcycle riders also may experience discomfort to the upper left foot during long rides having numerous ‘up shifting’ actions.

While there are a couple of products out on the market today which do sell slip on boot/shoe protectors, the drawback with these is that they have to be placed on and removed from the riders shoes each time the rider starts or finishes riding. These products also don’t offer the rider any type of cushion or comfort while riding.

However, motorcycle riders are in luck now because all of this is about to change. Shiftcush, the revolutionary company which invented the product bearing the same name, designed their Motorcycle Gear Shifter Cushion exactly to prevent all of the above from occurring.

The best part about Shiftcush is that their new easy-to-install gear shifter cushion not only prevents shoes from being ruined but also offers unrivaled shifting comfort by providing an air cushioned padding between the riders foot and gear shifter lever.

This revolutionary air cushion is made by the same technology as used in the Nike Air-Max tennis shoes.

Thanks to Shiftcush, now motorcycle riders can say good-bye to black/ugly shoe marks and any shifter discomfort caused by gear ‘up-shifting!’
