Sources for Blog Copy

Unless you’re a professional writer or have a staff member dedicated to the task, keeping your blog content fresh can be a huge challenge. Thankfully there are free sources for articles.

You might be wondering why this content is free. There are two main reasons:

Article directories can earn revenue from Google ads placed on their site as part of the Google AdSense program (www.google.com/adsense). This has stimulated the growth of thousands of look-alike article sites that receive very little traffic. Others are niche sites that carry articles in particular vertical categories.

Websites can be promoted effectively through articles. A link to the author’s website contained in each free article serves to: (a) bring targeted traffic through a well-designed, intriguing “signature” or author bio at the bottom of the article and (b) raise Google PageRank by creating more incoming links to a website. These links point to the author’s website from the article’s presence both on the article sites and on the websites that use the free articles
