Many of us repeat certain article marketing rituals. We write articles, submit them to high ranking sites, and wait for the magic to happen. Many times, we forget that there is more to article marketing than writing articles in your niche, and submitting them to different high pr sites. We tweak our marketing plans for success, but how much time do we spend on our articles themselves. Different aspects of the article? An article itself has a large indirect influence on the outcome of a successful article marketing plan.

What We Must Do!?

There are many different aspects of an article needed to be optimized in order for one to reach its maximum traffic generating potential. The higher traffic to your articles, the higher traffic to your website or product. So what’s the first part of an article you should focus on? The title!

The title of your article is one of the most important parts. If your content is amazing and your title is lame, who will ever get to the ever so marvelous content. You need an “eye-grabbing†article title to increase potential viewers. There are certain techniques article masters use to generate eye catching article titles.

The following are a few:

A) A Title With A “Benefitâ€

Create a title that will help communicate some sort of benefit to your viewers. If people see something that will help them with a certain need, it is most likely they will click your link!

B) Create Controversy

Use an article title that can create some sort of debate. Anything that will be likely to give viewers a strong opinion one way or another.

C) Ask A Question

When you write a title with a question, that will strike people’s attention real quick. They will have the urge to either respond to the title or see what others’ have had to say. This is a good idea to grab many people’s attention and to get some conversation going.

D) Use “YOUâ€

If you use the word you in your post, it will give people a special personal feel. The word you gives the addressee a feeling the post is targeted to their own specific situation.

E) Use Keywords

Using keywords in your titles is attention grabbing. Especially when those keywords appear multiple times in your content. When people read your post, those same keywords will appear to the viewer like a flashlight. It will definitely grab the attention of your reader and thrust them into the content of your article.
When you use keywords, this will help search engine rankings. The keywords will help Google determine your article topic and place it in the search engines. Tags also play a role in the search engines. Make your tags your keywords to rank high for those specific keywords.

A tip for keyword placement would be to try and include the keyword of your title in the first line of your article, and also one in the end.

F) Powerful Words

Some words are extremely powerful compared to other keywords in grabbing people’s attention.

-Free – When someone sees the word free it gives people an urge to find out more.

-Easy Or Quick – These two words are words that we all love. Who doesn’t want to learn something quick and easy?

-Secrets – This evokes a response of curiosity. People always want to learn more, especially when they think they don’t know something amazing perhaps?

-Discover – Discover is an interesting word. People always want to learn more and this word will entice them to your article.

G) Humor?

A humorous title can be effective in grabbing a lot of viewers to your article. Just make sure to include some keywords in your article for the search engines.

These are a few helpful hints on how you can drive more traffic to your articles, and eventually to your website, just by optimizing the title of you article. Hope to post more useful hints later. Now go and implement!

Good post, it should really help those who are struggling to understand copywriting!

Another thing to remember is that the same rules apply to your webpage titles and meta descriptions.

Although it's important to get the keywords in them, it's also crucial to include a call to action and something to motivate the user to click your link on the results page.

It's pointless being number 1 in Google if your meta description is so terrible that no-one wants to click on it.

Hi,

This is one of the best articles I have read about article marketing. I have personally observed that any amount of spun articles does not get you enough results as a well written simple article with these elements. I think a reader instinctively realises the trash.

Good ideas for when you want to write good content to draw in the reader.
I mostly write my articles for the backlinks, not so much expecting reader traffic.
But I'll try to incorporate some of these ideas.

good post here though this is not a new content. Getting your article rank on Google's first page is another thing.

Indeed! it takes a lot of effort and time. But it's worth it if you see your creation at the first page of google.

Under The Radar
I've written hundreds, maybe even a thousand articles over the last few years and here is a trick I use to get great titles. The tabloids and magazines at the grocery check out have the best title copywriters in the World. I write a lot of weight loss articles and weight loss products starting in January will be hot again. Look at the cover of women's magazines, copy the weight loss titles and use them in your articles. The article title is there to get the reader to click and read your article and you will discover that no one does that better for weight loss than these women's magazines.

Another thing I do is use the public library because they have a ton of magazines that can supply a multitude of article titles. If I only visit a library once a year I can get article titles that last me all year long no matter what niche you are going after. Another thing to think about if you are stuck with article content. If the offline magazines content is not on the web, then it's not duplicate content. I'm not saying to copy it word-for-word but you don't have to change much to use it. A quick way to use the content is make a copy of the article at the library and use Dragon Speak to get it into your computer.

That's how I get so many articles up fast and the content is unique which Google loves. Just a couple of ideas from a guy that pumps out a lot of articles and hopefully that will spark some ideas for some of you.
