This is just one way of getting traffic (a very good way) to your blog but it won't get instant traffic right away. For example if you submit some articles to some article directories sometimes it takes a few days or more to get them approved. I am not saying don't submit your articles to them, but there are many other ways to get some traffic to your blog while you wait for the articles to get approved. Look in our Marketing section for other tips members have suggested in a lot of threads.

One thing that you could try doing is guest blogging on blogs in your niche to get some traffic right away. (Be sure to contact the blog owner and ask if you could do a guest blog post on it)

We have a whole thread on Guest Blogging if you want to learn more about it and the benifits.

If you are going to promote your blog, I think it would be more useful to use social networking sites or social bookmarks. Article Marketing is more on raising serps.

I might not say article marketing is the best way to get benefits as there are many other ways to go by. But more than the backlinks, it provides us in other benefits like:
1. Your website reputation and conversion ratio
2. Your site will immediately notice by SEs
3. Well, it’s free method to come by

I think it is a good way to get traffic to your blog and articles come up in the search engines and also google alerts.

I agree with you. I too was going to say the same thing. Article marketing and keeping your content useful and updated in the life of the internet and is what drives search engines crazy in sending free traffic to your site. The more unique articles one produces, the more traffic you receive. Just take a look at Bloomberg.com. Bloomberg is like the biggest article site on the web today, catering to the financial world. But yet, his entire site is nothing more than a dressed up online article directory, but in a very sophisticated fashion...

Hopefully, everything I mentioned sounds motivating enough in cranking out useful article content that your visitors will love and come back for more!

Article marketing is a great way to promote your site (albeit not the only tool you should be using).

Yes, it does take some time to build up momentum. (I've had people ask me why their traffic wasn't soaring after posting 8 articles - doesn't work that fast!) However, article marketing gives you results that can last for months or even years. Think about it - you never know when someone will find an article that you published, like it, click on your link, and become a very loyal customer. A friend of mine recently sold a few ebooks off of articles she had written a year earlier!

The key, though, is to consistently create great articles. You can't just slap something together, post it on Ezine Articles, and wait for the traffic to roll in.

I guess article marketing is still alive and is still effective..

writing a well constructed article with all the information readers have to know about your niche is one..

Yes this is good but still one thing i could suggest you is :

Make your appearances everywhere you can. Show your face on as many sites as you possibly can.
You can do this by commenting on other blogs, participating in other social media avenues and guest posting.
Just go there and get it done !

From my experience "Article Marketing" works. I have a number of e-commerce sites which I have written articles about, and posted them on PRweb and other sites as "Press releases" or submitted to sites such as "ezine". It has been a great help in getting my brand name out there and additionally provides links. I was really surprised by how many places I was finding my articles on the web. It is also great for my business, because the article content is unique to my niche and would prove difficult for competitors to piggyback my content. So I would try to integrate branding in your article, rather than just write general content articles that anyone can use. My answer would be YES it works and it is another great tool to promote your site.

You took the words right out of my mouth. When we write, publish and promote articles online, it's important to always be as informative as one can be in the article writing and article marketing. One thing I noticed alot of online publishers do is write a quick article, just to be writing. You have to write , engage the reader, and keep their interest at heart , in order to keep them coming back. If your article content is compelling to people online, you're virtually guaranteed to not only make money, but to build a successful million dollar online company just from article marketing alone. But, it's surely NOT going to be an overnight process. You must stay the course in order to prevail online...

Article Marketing is still my number 1 choice for link building.

It allows me to get quality links from High-PR sites without much work
