Incredibly Bad Articles Will Kill Your Credibility





Incredibly Bad Articles Will Kill Your Credibility
 by: Dean Phillips

I've noticed a disturbing trend recently of articles suggesting that people write articles to send traffic to their websites, and enhance their credibility. In theory, the more articles you write, the more traffic you'll receive, the more credibility you'll have, the more sales you'll make.

It's an interesting theory. However, what those articles fail to mention is that your writing needs to be of a certain quality. And quite frankly, I'm seeing a proliferation of poorly written--or just plain bad articles appearing across the Internet!

Unfortunately, there are some publishers out there who will publish just about anything. That's the good news. The bad news is, those publishers don't have the quality websites or the huge traffic numbers, so your article probably won't be seen by too many people anyway.

So, in essence, you're really wasting your time writing garbage, because you're not going to reap the benefits that go along with writing quality content. Remember this saying, "garbage in, garbage out!"

To get published in the top ezines and on the top websites--the one's with mega traffic, you need to have your act together. Publishers of top ezines and websites aren't stupid, and so desperate for content that they'll just publish anything that's submitted to them. Their credibility is at stake everytime they publish. They have standards and their readers have come to expect a certain degree of excellence from them.

After all, how do you think they became top websites and ezines in the first place?

Now, I'll be the first to admit, I'm no Woodward or Bernstein. However, I take great care to make sure that my articles are well written, lucid and of high quality.

I've been fortunate enough to have my articles published by some of the top websites and ezines on the Internet. These publishers aren't publishing my articles because they like me or think I'm a nice guy. They publish my articles because they feel my content will enhance their website or ezine.

And contrary to what you may have read, everyone can't write articles--at least not good ones. You have to be honest enough with yourself to know what your strengths and weaknesses are. If you know writing articles isn't one of your strengths, don't continue to write anyway.

When you submit poorly written articles to publishers, you not only waste their valuable time, you also make yourself look bad in the process.

Writing articles is hard work, and if you want to write articles and you're not good at it, then you need to work hard to improve and develop your writing skills.

If you're not willing to put in the work that's required yourself, then at the very least, hire a competent ghost writer to write your articles for you.

•Do You And Your Website Have Credibility
?    by Dean Phillips I recently received an unsolicited e-mail from some company offering me their search engine optimization services for $199. Even though I had absolutely no interest in the offer, just out of curiosity, I tried clicking on the URL they provided in their e-mail. The URL didn't work, so I decided to check out this company with the various search engines. Incredibly, they were nowhere to be found! I couldn't find them on Google, Yahoo, Dogpile, anywhere! That's because they...

•SEO The Good The Bad And The Ugly
   by Dean PhillipsI seem to have created quite a stir, on a particular SEO forum recently. In fact, rumor has it, at one point, my article, Google's Trap, DMOZ's Nap, And Yahoo!'s Crap was the hottest topic discussed on this particular forum.The aforementioned article was also bestowed the title of, Worst SEO Article Ever by someone on the forum.Why all the animus?

•Google s Wonderland Trouble In Paradise
?   by Dean PhillipsThe fairy tale existance of Google is starting to experience shockwaves.So, what's the source of these shockwaves? Click fraud. As my readers know, I've written several articles on the subject of click fraud, suggesting that since it's the market leader, Google should take a more proactive approach with the problem of click fraud.Until now, Google has been mostly quiet about the subject, issuing this single statement to the Securities and Exchange Commission: We are exposed...

•The Truth About Search Engines Playing A Game You Can t Win
   by Dean Phillips If you go strictly by the numbers, Yahoo, MSN and Google are the Big 3 of search engines and directories. Between them, they index millions and millions of pages in their directories. Although Google claims to index over 4 billion. However, that's a subject for another day. The point is, out of all those millions and millions of pages, there's room for only a very few websites at the top of the results pages.That means, if you go strictly by the number of indexed web pages...

Local search is what Switchboard does better than any other search engine or directory on the planet--period!You won't believe how easy it is to get incredibly...

•Internet Marketing Are You Penny Wise And Dollar Foolish
?  by: Dean Phillips It never ceases to amaze me how many people set-up a web site, without any type of plan or clue about how to promote it--how to write a sales letter--how to write an ad--nothing! Fact is, nowadays, anyone can have a web site. But once you get one, then what? How are you going to make money with it? If you don't know what you're doing, then do the smart thing and consult with an Internet marketing expert. What? You say you can't afford an Internet marketing expert?...

•Arrogant Overture Placing Greed Ahead Of Their Customers Needs
   by Dean PhillipsAccording to the dictionary, the definition of the word overture is as follows:An opening or initiating move toward negotiations, a new relationship, an agreement, etc.; a formal or informal proposal or offer. Hmmmmmmmm...very interesting definition--especially that part about a new relationship.I think pay-per-click giant Overture should look up the definition of their own company name, because they appear to be breaching their relationship with their customers big...

•Google s Trap DMOZ s Nap And Yahoo s Crap
   by Dean PhillipsOn November 16th, 2003, Google commenced an update (the Florida update) which had a catastrophic effect for a very large number of websites and, in the process, turned search engine optimization upside down. It is common to give alphabetical names to Google's updates in the very same way that names are given to hurricanes, and this one became known as Florida. In a nutshell, a vast number of pages, many of which had ranked at or near the top of the results for a very long...
