Submitting a Blogger website to Google

 I have struggled with this topic for some time, as I’m sure many of you have.  What originally prompted me to look into this was the fact that my website was not showing up on Google Page Rank (   There appears to be many reasons why a page might not rank, including not being indexed, being too new, or being banned.  Needless to say I got used to seeing this response from Google Page Rank all the time.

Get Paid To Write Articles

Article marketing is one of the most effective ways to market yourself as a service professional or small business owner. When it comes to credibility with your target market, nothing performs as well as an article. Once your article is ‘out there’ it works 24 hours a day to drive targeted visitors to your site.
What is Article Marketing? Well, in essence, it is a type of advertising where businesses write short articles or “ezines” related to their respective industry. These articles are then made available in the marketplace for distribution and publication. Within each article is a “resource box”, which includes references and contact information for the author. Quality, well written articles can increase the author’s credibility in their market, and attract new readers, followers, and potential customers.
software to automatically rewrite an article for you but I would recommend that if you choose to do it you get it done by a human copywriter a decent copywriter can rewrite your existing articles for about 1 cent per word. However, this has received a bad reputation due to the fact that a lot of the “spinning” software out there just doesn’t work.
Ezine Articles allows writers to publish articles that include a special area at the end called a resource box. In the resource box the author leaves a link or two along with a couple of sentences. Other webmasters and publishers are allowed to reprint the article on their own websites, newsletters or blogs, as long as they keep the resource box intact.
From a publisher’s point of view it’s free content. If you are struggling to keep a regular email newsletter going reprinting articles can be a fantastic way to reduce your workload. You can also use the content to populate a blog, website or any publication as long as you follow the reproduction rules.
You can publish an ezine completely free.
Yahoo Groups will host your list (ezine) free of charge. In addition, they take care of all your subscription requests so you won't have to. To use one of these list servers, simply sign up and instantly create your list. They will provide you with a subscribe and unsubscribe email address and even a list owner email address, all completely free. The only disadvantage is that each posting will contain an ad for their service. This is really a small price to pay for such a great service. If you're just starting out, utilizing one of these free services can simplify the process. Another place would be, which is an article Submission Directory. There are a lot of different categories of content on this site, with the intent of increasing exposure to the article site, and to your personal blog as well. With regards to online magazines and publications such as Ezinearticles, where there is a greater degree of quality control, as the articles submitted are reviewed for their material and to ensure that the article meets the publishers and readers expectations. Having an article published by Ezine would help to establish credibility in the market, and improve traffic on the back end, with regard to quality content being the primary driver.
No matter which direction you go with, getting your articles marketed is a great idea, and can only improve you exposure.
