A little known way to receive ongoing web visitors, a higher Google Page Rank, and inbound links to your site without having to exchange links. All for free...
Article Writing - Pick a category you're interested and/or know a lot about and write an article about it. It doesn't have to be too long, just have some facts about something or even your opinion. At the bottom of the article make a new paragraph 'About the Author'. Here you write a short summary about yourself and your site name and URL. You can even have related links in the article, this is especially good if you write an article pertaining to your site, than have links to your site to show examples.
Here is an example. Go to Google and type in - "Why Paid Inclusion Is Better Than PPC Advertising" be sure to use the quotations, you want to get an exact match. This is an article I wrote last year an already it's listed on over 600 websites. I didn't pay a dime. That over 600 links pointed to my website, because of my 'About the Author' section.
Another example is - "Dear Santa: Christmas Sucks!" also in quotation marks. My sister wrote this one and it is on over 400 sites. Again free advertising for your website because of the 'About the Author' section. Both of these articles are based on opinion and look how many sites listed them. Most people know to get a higher Google Page Rank you need people to link to your website. This is the easiest way, plus it's free.
WebProNews.com - An excellent site to be listed on. They list almost any article that is webmaster related. They also allow you to upload a photo of yourself. Your article will be seen by thousands of people here.
You also have to be aware of some sites that offer to publish your article to thousands of websites for a fee. As you can see above, this really is not necessary. Just search the web for free article submission sites and you're set.
