Writing Articles to Create Website Traffic

The Thirst for KnowledgeMy mother instilled in me a thirst for knowledge. I firmly believe that a day in which I do not learn something is a day wasted.

I know I’m not the only person who believes this since the world is full of libraries, schools, universities and of course, information on the Internet.

That thirst presents a wonderful opportunity for writers in many ways, including using that thirst to create website traffic by submitting articles on topics of interests to a number of sites on the Internet.

You’re probably asking yourself about what could I possibly write an article?

If you’re a writer, the most obvious answer is that you share information which you’ve learned about your craft with others. Explain about the basics, such as dialogue; goal, motivation and conflict; how to use a semi-colon (LOL! and I hope I’m doing it right); plots, etc. You get the picture. As with any article writing, try not to make it too dry by not just offering blah facts, but personalize it with your experience and what worked for you. Oftentimes that hands on advice is just what someone needs to get over their own hurdle.

If you’ve got expertise in some field, for example, you’re an ER nurse or an attorney, offer up facts that someone might find useful for a particular activity. As an example, if you know about forensics, write an article on the reality of forensic investigations versus fictional TV forensics so that writers might understand what would be correct in that romantic suspense novel they are writing.

Have you visited somewhere interesting? Take the time to write an article on your experience in that city or country. Provide details of restaurants, events, interesting sites, etc.

Have you recently had a life-altering experience? How did you cope with it and what advice could you offer others that might be of benefit.

These are just a few of the possible ideas you can consider for an article to be submitted to the various Internet sites. Once submitted, the articles will be available for viewing by others and the Internet article sites generally provide a link to your website. Someone who reads an article that they find interesting or useful may then choose to come visit your website, thereby creating traffic to your website.

In addition to the benefit of increased traffic, there’s the benefit in practicing your craft by writing. Practice does make perfect (or at least better!).

One difference with Internet-based articles versus print articles is that you will also be asked to provide keywords for the search engines so that they may categorize your article for the future. Make sure you have identified the key issues in your article and list keywords related to those issues in the appropriate keywords field on the article submission site.

So are you ready? Here are some sites where you can submit your articles:


These are just a few of the dozens of article submission sites available. As with anything else, please make sure you read the fine print and that you remain the owner of the copyright in the article and that there are no hidden fees for submission. Also, some sites require that the article either be original or not be posted to any other sites.

Good luck with your article submissions!

    blogsite. It scared the daylights out of

    second article, which will be up soon. I
    don’t plan to do much more than this. The
    tension is too stressful for me!
