submit articles Crazy Frog.jpg (11593 bytes)By submitting your articles or original content to other domains, it gives you the opportunity to link back to your own website and increase its page rank. A higher page rank and carefully worded backlinks will help place your page(s) higher up in google's and other search engines' rankings in the keywords of your choice.
For example, let's say you made a webpage about frogs and wanted to reach a broader audience with it. As explained through the search engine optimization link above, there are many ways to get your page(s) to the top of the search engines. You could have the nicest frog pages in the world, but if they are not found by anyone on the net, who could appreciate them? Getting them to the top of google and other search engines in relevant keywords is one way to reach your audience. And one of the ways which helps get your pages to the top of the search engines is to submit articles to other domains.
By submitting articles to other domains, you are creating new webpages on the net which point back to your main pages. submit articles frog2_500x400.jpg (19193 bytes)This is more powerful than a simple link exchange, or submitting your links to many directories. The search engines give greater importance to backlinks (explained through the "page rank" link above) which are embedded within the text of a webpage than simple links at the bottom or side of a page. The search engines also value original content. It is not very beneficial to submit the exact same content to many different domains, although it may be somewhat beneficial. Generally we try to avoid hosting content that can be found elsewhere on the internet, because it has potentially negative consequences. But you can write the same content using different wording, even though there are a limited number of changes to the content. We use software and special services to analyse content submitted to our article submission site in order to determine if the content is duplicated somewhere else on the net. We can tell exactly to what degree the content has been duplicated, see the exact differences, and which pages host the same wording. If it is too similar to other pages on the net, we may remove the submission. The search engines use similar software and their process is entirely automated, incorporated into their search algorithms. They can even tell, as we can, which page of the duplicate content was actually put on the web first, meaning the original page, or the "original content". There are many websites and services which offer to submit your content to thousands of sites and domains, and it may seem attractive, but the search engines are no dummies and they have their own army of well-paid personnel whose job it is to understand these various gimmicks so that they can tweak their search algorithms and compensate against them.

I will explain below why it is beneficial to submit your articles to other domains, but first I would like to explain why it is important that your submitted article is "original" and not an exact duplicate. To make your content "original", you can modify your text in places, or quickly rewrite your content from scratch. Rewriting from scratch is the best, but more time consuming. We try to avoid exact duplications because it can put a black mark on our entire domain. Disk space is becoming increasingly cheaper. Heck, our webhost service charges only 5 dollars a month for an unbelievable 300 gigabytes of space. That can absorb a heck of a lot of text. Search engines cannot evaluate pictures, so we could technically duplicate much of Wikipedia and host the same content on our own domain. submit articles frog2.jpg (21865 bytes)This is a very simple procedure, and if it were successful, many people would be doing it. But it doesn't work, and in fact such "black hat" tactics are usually detrimental to the entire domain.
By being careful against such common "black hat" (nasty and dishonest) tactics, we are ensuring the integrity and respect of our domain as seen by the search engines, such that any content or articles that you submit to our site will be more respected and the backlinks pointing to your own pages will have greater value and positive impact.
A backlink is basically a "hyper"/web link which links "back" to your page(s) from outside of your own domain. For example, you could write an article and submit it to Wikipedia, and from that article, or through the "third party links" section at the bottom of that page, you could link back to your own page. However, the problem with Wikipedia is that they "nofollow" all their outlinks. An outlink is a hyper/weblink which links out from a page in one domain to a page in another domain. Links which connect to pages within the same domain might be considered as "interlinks".
The point of linking from pages within one domain to another is to increase page rank, as explained above, as part of the complex and convoluted process of getting one's pages to the top of the search engines.
Wiki knows all this, and because its pages are so popular, it has implemented a standard practice of assigning all "outlinks" from its pages as "nofollow". A nofollow outlink is a special outlink which instructs the search engines not to follow it "out" of their domain, and hence not give any credit whatsoever to the external pages they are linking to. In horrid tech speak, a nofollow link looks like: <a href="http://somedomain.com/somewebsite.html" rel="nofollow">keyword text outlinking from</a>.

To check the third party outlinks on wiki, you can right click with your mouse on any one of its webpages, choose "View source", and find the outlinks on the page. If they are not interlinking to any of wiki's own pages, they will certainly be given the rel="nofollow" characteristic.

Wouldn't it be nice if froggies could eat all our spammers?

There is also software available which will mark all such nofollow outlinks on any webpage in a certain colour - for easy viewing.
Anyway, the reason why wiki does this is because it knows that every spammer in the world would totally accost all their pages and submit valuable outlinks to their own pages. If that were the case, wiki would never find enough volunteers who could moderate against such easy spamming tactics. Especially since the spammers would invent some software which would automate the linking and submission process. The spammers attack everywhere they can, such as the comments boxes on regular blog sites. They are a horrible bug indeed.
The bottom line is that you would not benefit to place your article on Wikipedia, no matter how popular, famous and high traffic the website may be, simply because any outlink to your page would be hampered by a nofollow characteristic (your page rank and rankings would not improve in ANY way).
Your articles submitted to our site are not hampered in this way, but we would probably limit the number of outlinks you can place on any particular page. Again, the search engines do not like spam, and if all the pages within our domain linked out from every single word found on every single page… well, long story, but essentially it is a diluting process, and it weakens the entire domain.
We know all these tricks, and good and bad practices, which means that you can be confident any content you submit to our site will be respected by the search engines, and increase the value of the backlinks to you.

Why Backlinks and Article Submission is Good

As explained in detail through the Page Rank link above, backlinks (from pages within domains other than your own) help push up your page's rankings among the search engines. submit articles Red-Eyed Tree Frog.jpg (8723 bytes)"Ranking" is its numerical placement or order in certain keyword searches. In our frogs example above, let's say a search on google for the keyword "frog" yields 20 million results (meaning there are 20 million webpages mentioning the word frog and which google deems worthy enough to place in its results - there are many more, but they adopt blackhat and other nasty tricks and have been dropped entirely from google's results). If your page is ranked in position one thousand out of 20 million (an impressive accomplishment if you consider the sheer magnitude of the number 20 million), do you think anyone will stumble on your page if ranked in position one thousand? How about one hundred? Or even 20? How often do you yourself go past the first page of the top ten results when surfing the internet?
In any case, the point of this entire exercise is to try and get one's page to the TOP FIRST position, or at least the higher the better. Linking back to your page from original content placed on other domains is one honest method how to help you accomplish this.

Suggestions How to Backlink from any Article you Submit

So let's say you're convinced and you'd like to submit an article to our site. What next? Well, let's break this down into its various parts.
submit articles robo-frog.jpg (16820 bytes)First of all, the keywords of the page is important. If you want your own page to be pushed up in rankings among the search engines, you want it to look like other pages around the net of SIMILAR content are linking to your own page. It is like a vote from each of those pages, saying, "Hey, I'm talking about frogs, and while I'm doing so I'm linking to this really great website about frogs (your link)." If there are many unique and original content pages on the web which talk about frogs and link to your fantastic page about frogs, you can bet yer booties the search engines will think it must be good and therefore award your page a higher ranking.
But keywords are important. Obviously, a page which talks primarily about cosmetics but in one instance mentions a special frog skin extract which helps complexion, such a backlink will not have as strong and positive affect on the rankings of your frog page as would a backlink from a page which talks primarily about frogs. There is a positive affect, but not as strong.
Therefore, when formulating the content of your submitted article, try to focus on the theme and on the keywords. On the other hand, mentioning the keyword too many times and artificially is referred to as "keyword stuffing". Yes, the search engines employ mathematical geniuses who are all aware of these little tricks. Stuff a little, but don't overdo it. We moderate all our pages, because it is important that our domain is not negatively affected, and any pages submitted with these common blackhat and nasty tricks will simply be removed.
Now that you are sticking to your theme (although you could write about other subjects - the positive affect for your rankings just wont be as beneficial), and you are focusing on stuffing your keywords mildly, but not too much, you can now start to think about from where to link out to your own pages. From where? Well, obviously from the word "frog", you silly bunny! But even so it is not as simple as that. If you submit a hundred fantastic, captivating and original content pages in a hundred honest domains such as ours, and from each of these fantastic articles you always link out from only the word "frog", even this will spark off some alarm signals among the search engines. Amazing, isn't it? The best approach to take is to try and be as honest as possible, and use only the mildest, surreptitious and gentle spamming techniques you can. submit articles cartoon395.gif (37054 bytes)Do not think you can fool the search engines with your simple yet overemphasized tricks? They've been thought up a long time ago, and a long time ago the search engines have caught on and incorporated appropriate countermeasures. After all, if the search engines were to let their results be influenced by such simple tricks, we'd be back in the early days of the internet when the top nine results of every keyword search yielded websites promoting porno. And no one would use such useless search engines anymore. Google now makes 26 billion dollars a year from advertising revenues, because so many people use its search engine. With so much money, you can bet they are going to spend some of it to hire an army of geniuses and combat any deceptive tactics the lesser humans can think up. And if you happen to be a super genius yourself and think of something they have not, others will eventually catch on, so will the search engines, and eventually you may find all your hard and dishonest work penalized, neutralized and negated.
Therefore, when linking back to your fantastic page from within the text of your fantastic and original articles submitted to quality domains, make sure to linkback from frog related keywords, but not always the exact same words. Sometimes you might link back from "green frog", other times from "frogs", and other times from "big fat and angry frogs".
But hey, let's involve a bit of juicy strategy, shall we? First of all, let's say you own the domain frogs.com. If you write a juicy article and submit it to a nice and honest domain like ours, linking three or more times from within that article to frog.com will not be a great strategy. Instead, make sure to write a super interesting article about 'big fat and angry frogs', and put it on a webpage in your domain frogs.com/big-fat-and-angry-frogs.html. Make another webpage frogs.com/green-frogs.html. Make sure to use the hyphen, because the search engines like that. Now, from within your fancy article submitted on our domain, make a casual mention about big fat, angry and hairy frogs and link out from that text. On another page you submit to another domain, you might link out from really big fat and angry frogs. Get the point? Mix it up a bit, but keep it fairly consistent. And keep your themes matched, if possible.

Anyway, happy submitting!
