As an affiliate marketer you can have the best product on the internet. You can have the most interesting website in cyberspace. But without traffic to your site, you will never make money online. Article marketing is one of the most powerful methods you can use to attract a massive number of visitors to your website.

Your article must be clearly written and informational. It should provide value and be written strongly enough to build credibility. You want your article to be an easy read so it engages your customer and gives them reason to want more.

The basic principle of online article marketing is to keep the attention of your reader.  Do this by offering some form of value. One way to do this would be to write an article explaining how to write effective article titles for search engine optimization. To be valuable the article would explain the concept and give several examples, so the reader could take something away from the article.

Once you have built your credibility you can weave in some kind of reference to your products or services. If you are submitting this article to article directories you would work the reference into your resource box.

Once you have written your article, it is time to incorporate on page search engine optimization. You should use keywords in your article title, in the paragraphs of your article body and in the anchor text link in your resource box. Your title should include seven main words most of the time. Keywords should at least be in the body of the article once, preferably scattered amongst the paragraphs. A key to remember is to keep the article reader friendly while trying to optimize it for search engines.
