EzineArticles expert Jonathan Kranz (also the author of Writing Copy for Dummies) recently alerted me to the lively discussion regarding Glenn Murray’s “Article PR” philosophy — along with various thoughts about article syndication vs. blogs vs. PR vs. other marketing methods.
I liked Glenn’s comment on:
“If a bodgy site publishes it, they probably don’t get much traffic anyway, so not many people will see it, and most who do will understand that I’m not affiliated with the site.”
Making the point that those who violate reprint rules often are already karmically penalized.
Jonathan mentioned, “2) Ezinearticles discourages authors from leading their titles with “waste words” such as “10 Ways to…” but on MarketingProfs.com, articles with similar numerical leads consistently perform very well. Different game, different rules I suppose.”
Which metric specifically are you using Jonathan to determine that numerical titles outperform keyword intelligent article titles?
