Recently I was very busy designing my internet marketing business model again. Sales had been dropping possibly due to New Google Farmer updates. My articles had not been ranking high, and not able to stay there for long.
Long before, I used to submit only to Instant Approved article directories such as Articlebase. I agreed I’m not a fan of Ezine Articles and other directories that will take me a few days to 2 weeks before my articles went live. I find it really stupid and totally not efficient at all. If there are any problems with my articles or writing, I have to edit, resubmit, and wait another few days again! Although the link juice and PR is higher, but I don’t really care. I want fast results!
When I started my article marketing campaign, I did a lot of researches on how to write a proper article that will be ranked high. I’ll talk about that later. I had a pile of Instant Approved Article Directories to choose from and eventually I chose Articlebase. I found the articles there were ranked very high, without even doing any proper bookmarking and backlinking!
Now the problems came. If you wanted to try Articlebase, read this! As you know, I had several niches to market, I found that creating multiple accounts for each niche would be the best to organize my articles. Therefore I opened over 10 accounts, each account targeting a niche.
After about 1 year of using Articlebase, they suddenly banned my accounts 1 by 1! I started to lose traffic and all my efforts were gone! I email them and them told me I had more than 1 account. I fired back saying it WAS not written in the policy before and they should email me first to warn me, not deleting all my accounts without informing! Needless to say, they did not reply.
I guess I have to just move on, like what I did when my Adsense account was banned. I decided to choose another directory and start all over again.
I studied a lot again and to meet my criteria was not easy. Finally I found out that releasing Press Release was the same as submitting articles. I decided to go with PRLog.
PRLog was recommended in many forums for their reliabilities, as well as their high ranking. Of course instant approval was my main criteria. It seems to fit everything I want. So if you want to have another “Do-Follow” link, I suggest you go with PRLog!
Of course my post would not just end like this. I’ve not talk about how you can make money from that. Right after choosing PRlog, I wanted to push my articles as high as possible to make up for my lost articles from Articlebase. I HAD to social bookmark my articles. There were tons of social bookmarking sites such as Stumbleupon, Digg, etc … BUT …
I found 1 golden site. It actually pay you to bookmark! You are allowed to submit your adsense ID, and whatever sites you bookmarked, your adsense will be displayed and you’ll keep 100% of the earnings! It’s as good as you owned the site!
The site owner was smart. They let you earned through adsense to attract you in, at mean time, they had other advertisers advertising there through banners. Well, I should say it’s win-win for all. I can backlink my articles using this site, and earn passively through Adsense for life!
This site is non other than SheToldMe.com! You have to check it out! You not only can bookmark your articles, you can just surf and if you find anything interesting, just bookmark it! If anyone clicked on your adsense, you earned! Now I’m a happy man. I believed any failures that hit me, was an opportunity for me to go even further. Without my Articlebase account banned, I would not have found this and my adsense would not hit record high again! This time, it’s passive! Check out this site, it’s SheToldMe.com.
