There is really no doubt among the most experienced article marketers that syndication is the way to go. In recent days, Google policy changes have made it more difficult to rank with article directories. As you shall soon see, article directories for a very small role in regard to successful article marketing today. What you need to refocus on is the syndication of all of the articles that you write. Your site, and the business you are promoting, is what you need to be focused on. So your goal, if you really want to succeed, has to do with keeping content on your site updated and fresh. Once this is achieved, syndication is what you need to focus on next.
Once you have written your content, you need to post it or publish it on your website or blog. Article marketing is what you do next. Publishing your content on your website is very important! In fact, this must be done first for everything else will not work. It’s not about building content for other blogs you have, or article directories that you can submit to. This is not about creating unique content for every article directory on the web. You don’t have to do it to bring traffic to your site. The first step is merely publishing what you have written on your own website or blog, nothing else.
After the content is published on your website or blog, you need to get it indexed by the search engines doing a couple things. It is important that the website be recognized as the only source for the new content you have just published. These search engines need to know this. Your page will be indexed very quickly if you go to a social bookmarking site like Digg and put a bookmark. You can also go to a pinging site and ping your blog with that particular post or page. If you are using a WordPress blog for your website you will not have to manually ping your page or post because WP does it for you.
Going back to this discussion of related niches, writing articles on related niches is okay to do because they are related to your primary niche in some way.
This is easy to do because I have seen it done before. You just have to be careful in choosing the right topics to discuss. Expanding into related topics is something that you have to try. There are limitless traffic potentials when doing this type of writing. Think about rinse and repeat because you will do the same things with these related niches that you do with your regular one, and that is very powerful.
To be a better writer, look at what other good writers are doing, and copy their efforts. Some of them are selling what they have to offer, secret strategies that are supposed to work wonders.
As long as you can handle feedback, criticism and failing time and time again, you will be a candidate for success through constant unending practice. Dramatically lessen this learning curve, learn from people that know more than you.
