Article Marketing Makes Starting An Internet Business EASY!!

Do you have an idea rolling around in your head? Would you like to know how to start an internet business? It is actually very easy, and something you can work on today.
In the past few years, I have begun a number of businesses. I have even been able to help others get their businesses off the ground, and each time I get started, I always use article marketing. I do this because well-written articles will bring in high search engine rankings and in turn more traffic to my site. Let me show you why it works.
How to Start an Internet Business – Submit to Authority Sites
The first reason they work is because you submit them to an authority site. When you submit to article directories like Ezine articles, Article Snatch, or Articlesbase, many times your article will get ranked in Google for your particular keyword right away. Usually within weeks. So write a 300-700 article with a resource box that points back to your website, and use the authority of these sites to build your reputation as an expert in the field.
How to Start an Internet Business – Generate Direct Traffic
The second reason they work is because they generate direct traffic. Once you submit your article to an article directory, other people come and pick it up. Let’s say you have a website about dogs, and these are other people’s sites: a dog blog, dog health forum,, They all come and pick up your article, post it on their site, and when people come to visit those sites, they read your article. They also see your resource box, and then they can find their way over to your website. You get easy traffic all from that one article.
How to Start an Internet Business – Build Backlinks
The third reason they work is because of backward links. A backward link is like a vote. Many times my pages and my interior pages show up in Google because lots of other people have posted my articles to their sites. For each one of these, I get a backward link, and as I start to amass backward links, I rank higher and higher in Google.
Getting on the first page of the search results for your keyword and staying there are two different things. There are lots of other people competing to be on the first two pages, and the competition is fierce. Article marketing can be the best tool to keep you on top.
