  • EMAIL LINK TIP: We recommend including a link to your website but do not advocate including a mailto: or email link to your personal account [ReTweet This]
  • Follow this guideline for article happiness: Article Body must always deliver on the promise(s) made in the Article Title. [ReTweet This]

Of course, we need to follow @EzineArticles. Any Ezine publisher not following is definitely missing out on the great tips. Here I am trying to go the extra mile to submit more articles. I love the ezine tips. Very spot on.
