Author URL Separation

This is a article author boo-boo that I’m beginning to see too often. They cutesey up their URL so that their multi-word URL is easier to understand by a human reading it and in doing so, they ruin the future traffic potential from their articles.

Example of what not to do:
http://1973 Trans AmWhich would produce this:
http://1973 Trans

Why is this a mistake?

Because the article will get picked up by other ezine publishers who will not manually re-assemble their URL — causing it to NOT be an active link.

If an author doesn’t get an active link back when their article goes into distribution, they have just completely missed the point of “article marketing” as a strategy for those who use it to grow traffic and link popularity.
