I have come across a new health and fitness articles directory. While there are many article submission directories, this one focuses only on health, fitness and nutrition. While I think article marketing is great no matter what directory you use, I noticed that the bigger directories build page rank yet send very few visitors back to my blog. I also found that many of the big article directories contain very spammy articles that don’t even attract readers. I think niche article directories will be the new wave of article marketing since they can build page rank and send a stream of targeted traffic.
Basically article submission helps your promote your blog in two ways. It builds a link back to your blog or website. Most article directories let you do this by including links in the article you submit to them. You can just have those links pointing back to your own site. Building these so called back links is great for increasing your blogs search engine rankings which just means more search engine traffic. Article submission also helps you get visitors to your blog or website. Most article directories attract lots of traffic and many of the readers of your articles will click your article’s links and end up right back on to your blog or site.
