Article Marketing Debate

Updated: March 31, 2011

4 Reasons Why I Think the New Google Algorithm Change is a Good Thing 1. It forces article directory sites like EzineArticles.com to enforce stricter editorial guidelines. Google wants quality! Your readers want quality! I can almost guarantee this is why EzineArticles.com now requires you to write articles at least 450 words. And, it's why they are going to review your articles even more thoroughly for spelling, grammar and formatting errors. They are increasing their quality control - and that's usually a good thing. 2. It forces you the article marketer to go beyond the article directories - and target the best websites, ezines and blogs. Now, as the Google algorithm change focuses on article directories (and I'm sure this is only the beginning!) you cannot solely focus on SEO. You need to start putting your content on targeted websites, ezines, blogs and forums that your audience is going to every day. This way, you go directly to your audience instead of you hoping they find you on the search engines. Plus, these sites will give you the credibility and expert status you need to build your business.

It forces you to use other mediums to get your content out in front of your prospects' faces. If you didn't have a reason to start engaging in social media before - now you do. Besides trying to get rid of the "junk", Google is changing its algorithms based on the way people search. Now, your prospects are gaining the information they need from social media sites like LinkedIn. If you want to be found and if you want to be heard, then you need to engage in social media. 4. It forces you to start creating articles that give prospects the perception that you are the thought leader. You think sites like Entrepreneur.com and WomenEntrepreneur.com (which my article submission clients have been published in!) want to publish regurgitated content that is already all over the Web? No way! So, if you are going to go beyond the article directories and get your articles published on top websites, then you need to up your game. You need to start offering information that is usually held back - and you need to "wow" publishers and readers with the information you are revealing. How to Embrace the New and Upcoming Google Algorithm Changes.. Understand that article marketing is not what it used to be. No longer can you submit an article to thousands of article directories and expect the traffic to come pouring in! Whether you're just starting out in article marketing, or you already run an article marketing campaign, you have to learn how it should be done in today's world if you want it to succeed.
