Happy new week all, I hope we all enjoyed the weekend.
We all know that articles are the backbone of any internet based business or site. Even those that have no site but are heavy internet users are also aware of that. Articles quench the thirst for information and knowledge of the people. Plus, the articles provide many other benefits for the site.
However, the benefits that articles provide to a site cannot be over emphasized. They provide attraction to website visitors when they are appreciated and are linked to your site from another site or newsletter which will also increase its search engine ranking. Articles also provide for the increase of the confidence and trust levels of customers to your site and company.
Articles are also beneficial to both the owner and its readers, this is because when the readers like the articles, they would tell more of their friends, family and peers about it and then recommend your site to them, providing for a larger volume of publicity which means more visitors. You also get bigger sales if your traffic trusts and believes in you. Your product or services would be much easier to sell when they know you know what you are doing and talking about.
In a nut shell, articles are very crucial and to remain in the game, a site must have valuable articles, it is imperative. But there is one problem though, not many people like writing articles.
Many webmasters 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 article writers. Plagiarism or copying of other articles is also frowned upon and could easily get you into trouble.
So what else can I do to keep my site updated with Articles?
Well, for beginners, if you don’t like writing articles and you can’t afford to hire people to write for you then the best way is to use free articles. The first place to look at for free articles is the public domain. Here you won’t have problems with copyright infringement and the following penalties and fines if you get caught for plagiarism.
So what are Public domain articles? They are articles freely given to the public for public use. However, you can do whatever you want with it. You can place it on your site, name it as yours, put it in a newsletter, etc. But always have in mind though that you will have to choose articles that are very relevant to your niche.
The disadvantage to using public domain articles is that since it is 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 you have the same niche, this could be a predicament. You may also have to edit them a bit in order to make them unique.
Another way to get free articles is to allow other bloggers to submit guest posts on your blog. 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 author bios with them that could link or direct the readers to their site or products. That’s why it is vital to have your own articles.
But, to truly feel the impact of what a good article 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. You can get quality articles that have all the keywords and keyword phrases you need and people are looking for.

Finally, the investment you made for these articles would be worthwhile because you could use them for all the benefits you could offer. You hold copyrights to them and you will be able to use them anyway you want.
