Article Writing … A Free Way To Get Traffic!
I trust you are enjoying the content up to this point and let's not waste any time … In today's lesson, I want to share with you the art and science of article writing.
Before we get started, let's quickly review. The first 3 topics in this series included finding a mentor or coach, goal setting and budgeting respectively. If you miss one or all of these articles, you can visit the link below …. Do not go there now! I have important information to share with you first and foremost.
Article writing is something that likely scares a few of you. Well, do not let it because if you let your fear get the best of you, you will never grow. I can remember my first article …. boy I had no idea what I was doing!
I took some of the strategies I had learned and put them into practice. Believe it or not, it is in my top 5 most viewed articles and that was over 18 months ago.
I still can not believe it but you know what? I just simply did it. That is the big lesson you need to learn today. The other stuff I am about to share is the mechanisms and strategies which are very important but not as important as just doing it!
Alright, enough about that …. Article writing must and I mean must revolve around key words. Uh … what does that mean you ask?
Well, Google not to mention other search engines perform task according to the "key words" that you enter in the search box. Make sense? I am sure it does.
So, when you put in your "key words", the engine will search all content that is relevant to that term. This means you want your article to be key word rich so that when someone searches those key words, you come across as relevant to the search engines and extremely got ranked on the first page of results.
There are a couple of techniques that you can use. You can purchase software that performs this work for you and I am not going to recommend any one in particular. Just go do an internet search and there will be plenty of results.
Or you can do what I will do sometimes is go and use YouTube …. YouTube you say? Yes, YouTube. You are kindly aware that YouTube is the property of Google. As a result, it relates heavily on keywords too …. see where I am going with this?
Instead of paying for monthly fees for a software, you can rest assured that the big guys and gals are using keyword technology and strategies in their video content. Having said that, go to a video that has thousands of views and look at the "tags". Tags are to YouTube what keywords are to Google. Therefore you can research a topic on YouTube, find one that has a lot of traffic, look at the tags and copy them for your article. Free and does not take a lot of time!
Wow, this is getting too long so I am going to leave it at that. I will continue on in part 5 and actually tell you what your article should look like and set it all up
My homework for you is to take your niche, research it on YouTube and look at the tags associated with the video ….. easy to do but easy not to do …. it is ALL up to YOU
