Article writing should not be rocket science. Articles should be short, simple and to the point (around 400 words). There is no doubt that learning how to optimize your articles with affiliate marketing attraction within your niche topic, is important in attracting readers, prospects, and products to create a steady flow of income.
There are over 150 million blogs out there in the world today, and in order to compete at any level, you must understand the inner workings of search engine optimization. Ranking your blog posts on Google is difficult, and it has become increasingly more so in the wake of Google’s many new algorithm changes.

Your article will be posted there and will be free to use for anyone who wants to release it on the web (provided they keep your bio intact with no alterations). For example, at the bottom of any article, you submit a paragraph, known as a resource box, that briefly describes you or your business, and contains a link to your website. This must appear on any website that chooses to publish your article(s), potentially attracting thousands of visitors back to your site. Your resource box should encourage readers to click on the link to your website. Once they do, you can offer them your affiliate products and services, or even a freebie so that you can gather email addresses and build a strong mailing list.
The most important part of any article is the headline. If your headline fails to catch the interest of the reader all your efforts will have been in vain. You must work on your headlines and encourage the reader to click through to the article.
Any headline you write should be short and snappy. Grab your reader’s attention by playing to their desires and then offer them a solution within the article’s content. A great headline can be something like the following:
- How to make money online
- How to start a successful online business
- 10 tips for finding your perfect online business
- 5 easy steps to online marketing success
Keyword research is the practice of finding and analyzing actual search phrases people enter into search engines when they’re finding information online. Your articles should contain keywords that are relevant to your business niche.
Learning how to optimize your articles with affiliate marketing attraction is key to a successful business campaign. Both of them go hand in hand; you should learn the basics if you want to succeed and make money online.
