Building Backlinks with Article Marketing
Article marketing is a great way to grow your business and get back links without having to shell out big bucks on advertising. Instead of spending money on ad campaigns, you are focusing your efforts on quality and time, or you can simply outsource the whole process. Just like Google makes money off advertisers on search results, there are some huge article directories that make a ton of money off Google Adsense and other advertising in exchange for publishing articles and providing back links to their author’s web sites.
It’s a tough business to get extremely large in, but once you break through the barrier, you can make some serious money. Sites like EzineArticles.com and ArticleBase.com are both ranked in the TOP 500 on Alexa. This is a “build it and they will come” type of business. The article directory serves Google Adsense on their site, while the authors/publishers build up the site with content. It’s a win-win opportunity for both the article site and author publishing.
Here is a list of some of the top article directories around the web and their respective Alexa / Pagerank numbers.
ArticleBase.com – Alexa #340 – PR 6
EzineArticles.com – Alexa #121 – PR 6
GoArticles.com – Alexa #1,634 – PR4
Saching.com – Alexa $56,492 -PR4
