Unlike onsite text content (such as blog posts which are on your site), offsite content is posted on other websites.
Article Marketing is a form of offsite content in which articles about your products and services are submitted to article websites. Article sites are like an online library containing thousands of unique articles from different authors across a variety of different categories and topics.
Google rewards these sites for having fresh and unique content and over time, the individual articles are also given credibility in their own right and begin to appear in Google searches. This also makes the links within the articles more important.
Article Marketing is included as part of your new monthly eMarketing service. This process involves selecting relevant information about your business, products or services and shaping this into a quality original article.
I do this by taking a look at your website and doing a little research into the topic. The finished article is then uploaded to several article sites and your company is cited as the author, along with a link to your website.
This method is a great way of getting links to your website from other trusted sites and showing Google you are part of the greater internet community.
Article Submissions are also brilliant for the credibility of your website, as you are demonstrating that your business is proactive in the online community. In time, your site will become more and more trusted, leading to better rankings in Google. As a Copywriter, I find that article submissions are a fantastic way to show that you are engaged with your industry and your customers.

I speak with many people about how to improve their Internet Marketing. One suggestion I often make is to have a regularly updated Blog on their site. Many people have heard of the term, but I’m all too often asked; ‘What actually is a Blog?’ and ‘How will it help my business?’
Think of it from Google’s prospective for a moment. Imagine how many websites there are in the world all competing to appear on the first page. How does Google decide which websites deserve to be on page one?
There are many factors Google assesses in its decision making process, one of these factors is how new and unique the content is on your website. Has there been any new content added to the site since 2010? Or are you keeping your site’s content up-to-date regularly and sharing information with users? Are visitors to your site, interacting with the content you creating for them?
If you had to choose between thousands of websites, would you opt to visit the site where there haven’t been any changes for years? Or would you want to see what’s new on the site that makes updates every week?
A key part to being a good Blogger is remembering that you are creating content for your users, not just Google.
Well written, good quality content is good for your business’ reputation, it enables your users to openly interact and share thoughts and ideas with you and in turn your site is rewarded for all your hard work.
Another crucial part to Blogging is to ensure you respond to user comments, no one likes to be ignored regardless of what platform the conversation takes place.
