Where do I get Articles?

If you administrate, own, or assist an Internet-based business or site one definite requirement is articles. Plain and simple, every one who has a site knows this. Even those who don’t have sites but are frequent Internet users realize this as well.

Articles quench the thirst for information, knowledge, and know-how. Plus, the articles provide many bonus benefits for the site. The pluses that articles provide raise a site high in the ranking in search results of keywords and keyword phrases that pertain to or are relevant to a particular site.

They also provide attraction to website visitors. They appreciate the info and link to your site from another site or newsletter. Articles provide for the increase of the confidence and trust level of customers to your site and company.

Many articles are beneficial to both your site and its traffic. When the readers like the articles, they will tell more of their friends, family and peers and recommend your site to them, providing for a larger volume of traffic. You get bigger sales if your traffic trusts and believes in you. Your product or services become easier to sell when they know you know what you are doing and talking about.

So ok, we have established that articles are extremely crucial to a site and to business. Articles are a lifeline and to keep ahead in the game, a site must have articles; it is imperative. There is one dilemma though. Not many people like writing articles. And, what’s worse, many folks don’t know how to pen a good article.

Many website owners would rather spend their time on something else, and unless you’re a big time company, you don’t have the necessary resources to use on a pool of article writers. Plagiarism or copying of other articles is frowned upon and could easily get you into trouble, worst case scenario; a hefty fine and jail time.

So what are the other options?

Well, for starters if you hate writing articles you can outsource this task and others will charge you a fee to provide them. One great site from which to buy cheap, quality article is here: http://www.freelancer.com/affiliates/stevefortosis/
But let’s say that you have zero finances and you can’t afford to hire people to write for you. A last resort is to retain free articles. The first place ce to look at for free articles is the public domain. Here you won’t have problems with copyright infringement and the resulting penalties and fines if you get caught for plagiarism.

Public domain articles are articles freely given to the public for anyone’s use. You can do whatever you wish with them. You can place them on your site, name them as yours, put them in a newsletter; it’s you decision. Always remember, though, that you will have to choose articles that are very relevant to your site.

The downside to public domain articles is that since they are free for everybody, many of your competitors may have access to them as well. Since every site needs to be original and unique, even though in the same niche, this could be a tough predicament. You may also have to edit them a bit to place more keywords and keyword phrases to make them more attractive when people search online.

Another way to get free articles is to allow other sites which deal with the same subject or topic as yours to submit articles to your site.

This would be only to augment your existing content, or else all your articles would be leading to other sites since these articles would have resource boxes with them that could link or direct the readers to the writers’ sites. That’s why it is important to have your own articles; you could use them to link your site to other sites as well.

Tip: to truly feel the impact of what a good article means to you, go for original ones. There are many article writers who do part time and freelance article writing jobs that charges only minimal fees. Check http://www.freelancer.com/affiliates/stevefortosis/
You can get good articles that have all the keywords and keyword phrases you need and people are looking for. The investment you make for these articles will be worthwhile because you could use them to gain many benefits. You hold copyrights to them and you will be able to use them any way you want.

As your articles help you in building your business and your site, you will have more articles to write and maybe then you won’t be having second thoughts about articles.
