Listening to this interview I got the impression that Article marketing was seen as different to SEO however I thought it would be complementary.
The issue regarding content seems that poeple do not like writing and aviod it. However for SEO without the content what have your got to work on.
I often collect company brochures, letter written to customers and article on the company from other sources as the content to build a web site. So I then write the content and ask them to vet my work.
This inteview indicated that at 80 artices on a site it starts to become authoritive – That is a significant body of work. But my experience would indicate the more artilces the better.
Thanks good information.
It depends on how you look at it, Max.
Essentially article marketing is creating backlinks for you and building authority and trustworthiness among your human readers. More backlinks and more website authority (PageRank) means higher search engine rankings.
What im saying is that it is not really an ‘optimization’ like working with your heading tags, etc. However, since SEO is often used to describe an increase in search engine ranking then sure – it is part of your SEO :)
