I run an article service on my site, and I am seeing an increasing amount of articles being presented, only for the backlink given in the Resource Box. This might be as a result of increasing number of PLR articles and material that's becoming available.

Now, there is not necessarily anything wrong with this, I only think that writers who are doing this are missing out on possible traffic and/or clients. Such reference boxes is only going to gain their site ranks in incoming links that are valued by any search engine.

Is this a bad thing? No. Where they are losing out can be as follows.

Much of the traffic to my report index comes from search engines, by people searching for information on a particular subject. Today, this user types in their key-words, presses o-n the search box, and is given a list of relevant sites. They chose one, and are taken up to the author's article. They read the article about, say, snowboarding, think 'This is interesting' and go to the author's resource box at the conclusion of-the article to see what else they have to say on this subject. There, they locate a link to some site advertising mobile ringtones. To read additional information, please consider peeping at: affiliate. Is the reader likely to be impressed, or thinking about this? Not very likely. They wish to check out snowboarding, perhaps not personalize their phone. I really believe one of three things may happen then:

The audience leaves the entire site in disgust.

The viewer clicks on a link to your relevant report.

The reader clicks on a related Google AdSense (or similar contextual promotion) ad.

They don't click the author's source link. To discover more, consider checking out: Access Denied. That is a possible client dropped, very probably permanently.

Yes, put a link in to your site in the reference package, but many article directories allow many links, therefore for goodness sake put a link in that' ;s linked to the article subject too, and preferably put it in first, before you lose the customer. Navigating To linklicious coupon maybe provides warnings you could tell your girlfriend.

'But my site does not have anything to do with that subject about it'!

Then add something that does. Include a report listing, and have the resource field saying 'To learn more articles on this issue, just click here.' Add a web directory, and have the text say 'To view links to websites with this issue, click here.' Or simply visit ClickBank, search for related projects, and have a link to them, together with the link saying something such as 'If you prefer to learn more on this subject, buy this product.' Ultimately, not just a direct link to the product, but a cloaked or redirected one.

By doing this, you still get that link to your site that you were after actually, but, moreover, you have the chance to earn money from your audience in a fresh way. A win-win situation. Plus, you do not look like somebody only submitting acquired material on any subject only for the sake of the backlink it will give you. An infinitely more professional look. Is not it worth finding the time to make better use of one's resource field?.
