Do you have a motorcycle related site? Perhaps you sell motorcycle gear or just have some informative articles. Either way, you probably want more visitors, right?
A great approach that will generate a flow of targeted visitors to your site is to write articles on a topic of interest to motorcyclists and submit them to niche article directories. Webmasters are scouring the net everyday for articles of interest to their visitors. They use them to post on their site, in their blogs and to send out to their email lists.
At the bottom of your article you can put a resource box, that lists your credentials and one or two links back to your website. Publishing articles like this can be a huge boost to your traffic and can have other benefits as well.
Writing informative articles on niche topics will establish you as an expert. When you brainstorm topics for your article be sure you write an informative piece of interest - not just a sales pitch. For example you could write an article about safety issues and why one should always wear a helmet - in it you could list the helmets that provide the best protection and then provide a link in your resource box right to a page where they can purchase one.
A second benefit is that you will be getting targeted one way links from everyone who publishes your article. This will become much more important in the future as the search engines decrease the value of reciprocal links. You can get literally thousands of links from just one article! In order to get the highest bang for the buck when submitting articles, your goal should be to submit to directories where it will be seen and published by webmasters who have a need for content in the motorcycle niche.
Submitting to the big articles directories is good, but you should also submit to targeted niche directories where your article will be seen by hundreds of webmasters who want to add it to their sites!
But the best benefit to writing and publishing articles is that it will bring in traffic. Your article will get plenty of eyes on another persons site or from their emailed newsletter, and if they like your style or your information, they may just click through to your site. Believe me, I get plenty of traffic from the articles I write and that traffic can translate into more sales.Here's some tips on writing a great article that will help boost traffic to your motorcycle website:
1. Get people interested.
You can get a lot of ideas about what to write about from the emails that people send you through your site - do they ask about motorcycle accessories? Then an article about this might be just the thing. Another thing you can do is put up a poll on your site and ask the users directly what they want to learn more about.2. Use an attention grabbing headline.
Get them to read the article with an interesting title, something like "Scenic Motorcycle Trips For North Americans" could compel any motorcyclist to click and read.3. Write like you are having a conversation with the reader.
Don't just list a bunch of boring facts, write like you talk. Go back through and read and edit. Make sure the article reads well and don't be afraid to throw in some humor to keep their attention. Don't make it too long or too short either about 300 to 600 words is good.4. Organize your thoughts first
. If you have trouble starting, you could start with an outline and flesh it out from there.
You‘ll be surprised at the traffic just a few articles can bring!
