Hi Chris!

How are you today? Today is a holyday in Greece, and this is why I delayed so much… I have a question, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to participate of the teleseminar. I’m too far and I never know how to discover the time-difference. We are around 10 hours ahead…

Anyhow, my question is: could you show us how to write the best article titles to attract many readers?

I read a little bit about headlines online, and I discovered many interesting things: our titles must exactly describe the content of our articles, and of course, contain our keywords; they must be long and very explicative. If we write a title with only two words for example, it has no chances to have a good ranking, and no chances to attract any readers…

I found a few examples of “magnetic headlines”, but I don’t like them, and I think that they don’t fit in my field. I would prefer something somehow more sophisticated than: “Give me 5 Minutes and I’ll Solve All You Problems”, or “Who else wants to Make Money Tonight?”

Could you give us lessons about how we can write good titles?

I hope you’ll record the teleseminar so that I may listen to your answer. Thank you!

Quick Tips for Getting FREE Traffic To Your Site

Method 1: FREE Instant Traffic With Social Bookmarking

Sign up to StumbleUpon.com (free) and download their toolbar for your internet browser. Install the toolbar, type in your site’s web address and give it a “thumbs up” from the Stumble Upon Toolbar.

Give the “thumbs up” to each of your website sections i.e. Computers, cars, travel, finance and shopping.

You don’t have to do all the pages, just give a few pages from each section. All you do is give the pages a thumbs up from the Stumble Upon toolbar.

You should start getting traffic almost instantly and start making money straight away.

Other similar sites to try are http://www.digg.com and http://www.del.icio.us

This is called “Social Bookmarking” and it is extremely effective for getting instant traffic.

Method 2: Slow But Much More Effective Long Term

Write articles. Yep write an article for each section (computer, cars, travel etc) of your site. It should be around 350 to 1000 words long and submit it to the article directories http://www.EzineArticles.com and goarticles.com . When you submit your article you will need to fill in a resource or signature box at the article directory submission page. Here you put in sentence about yourself and a link to your website section. i.e. if your article is about cars you put the link e.g. http://www.yourdomain.com/cars etc.

I recommend you write and submit at least one article a day. The more you submit the more traffic you will get in the long run and more money you will make.

This method takes some time to take effect, weeks, months but once the traffic starts coming in, it doesn’t stop, it’s stable and keeps increasing gradually. This is the best way to establish your website in the long run and make the most money.

Start with method 1 for instant burst of traffic then go to Method 2 and do it continuously as a long term promotion strategy.

There you have it 2 extremely effective, very easy and best of all FREE ways of getting tons of traffic to your website so you start bringing in some serious cash!

All the best.

NBD8,

What is your real name?

Are you an expert author on EzineArticles.com?

I respectfully disagree with your claims.

Article Marketing is not a strategy to bring in some serious cash fast.

Article Marketing is all about the long-term approach to high value traffic attraction and qualified lead generation.

What you do with the leads and traffic is your business…but ultimately, the conversion or monetization of the traffic we deliver is a wholly separate strategy than “article marketing”.

Our friend gave us a new idea about what else you could show us in this teleseminar. He said:

“Once the traffic starts coming in, it doesn’t stop, it’s stable and keeps increasing gradually”.

I love it when I see a very old article bringing me traffic all the time since 2007 until today. However, not all articles are so successful…

I studied a little bit the traffic search terms of a few of my old articles, and I saw that usually they have a period of time of success, and then the traffic stops coming so much.

Could you explain us why this happens, and what we can do in order to have constant traffic from the same articles?

I know that the long articles were I give complex lessons about my topic (in a simple way) will be successful for sure, but these articles take time, efforts, etc. and they are long, what means that they are not ideal for everyone, because most people don’t read too long articles, so they are only partially successful.

On the other hand, there are many short articles, very simple, that attract too many readers for one reason or another.

Could you show us simple tactics we can use when writing short articles so that they may always bring us constant traffic?

Thank you!

Christina,
Huh?
What are you talking about “short simple articles that attract “too many” readers…”
How do you get “too many” readers?
What have you been smoking?
Show us tactics so short articles always bring us constant traffic…
Good luck with that one Chris cause I’d like to see that.

Since you think that my question is absurd, Im going to answer it according to my observations.

You can attract many readers writing simple, short articles, if you:

1.Find the keywords that your audience is looking for using tools like Googles at: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
and at Wordtracker: http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/

2.Write about a specific and very well-defined topic (Dont talk about too many things in one article)

3.Find the best title using your keywords and attracting many readers by offering them benefits, besides information

4.Start talking about your main topic directly in the first paragraph. Youll catch your readers attention and the search engines will understand from the beginning that you are being loyal to your title

5.Repeat your main keywords in your article through synonyms in a natural way. Important keywords must appear at least once in each article. Dont overdo it because it is not necessary, but dont forget to repeat at least once your main keywords, especially the ones you used in the articles title.

6.Choose your title from the beginning so that you may write about what you intend to, instead of talking about other things, but change your title at the end, if it is not defining exactly what you wrote about. Make your title reflect exactly what your article is about, using many descriptions in it, besides the indispensable benefits for the reader.

7.Give real information and help your readers learn something very interesting with your article. They will care about learning more at your site if youll be helpful.

Chris will find many other tactics for sure!

There are many things one can do in life in order to prepare the results he desires.

Thank you very much for your generous input. I had the stumble upon tool bar for a year on someone’s suggestion but it sat there untouched so I got rid of it. Now that you explained how to use it I will try it. Instant traffic = unbelievable. I have to see this to believe it. If it’s true thanks for your generosity.
I don’t know why Chris disagrees with you. He says “it’s not fast” after you said “it’s slow” he says it’s for getting traffic not money – what’s the difference? That’s why everybody puts articles up to get traffic which leads to sales.

What do mean “sections of your website” computers, cars…?
First I’ve heard of sections, pages yes, but sections…?
“submit pages of your sections?
Websites are usually on one topic.
