Article Marketing Forum And Network Marketing Strategy
One of the best and yet overlooked ways to grow your business is by contributing to an article marketing forum
. You should only submit content to a forum with quality information and advice on article marketing as you want to be seen to be mingling in the right circles. The knock on effect of this is that you will also pick up some new marketing tactics along the way from an article marketing forum.
You must be aware that you will run into tons of different article marketing forums that are full of nothing but garbage information that people have thrown together from an old ebook in the hope they can get you to buy a product from them, or get you to sign up to their list. You will find many a self-proclaimed guru trying to sell you the next big thing!
You do need to be very careful about the information you pick up on these sub-standard forums as putting old and rehashed information into practice for your business could see you fail very badly. Marketing technology
is ever evolving, and there are much more reliable forums rising to the top. If you know what to look for finding the best article marketing forum can be easier than you might think.
One of the first things you should look for on a forum is are there any ads on the site. A forum with adverts everywhere will not only distract your readers but is also a sign that the forum is more interested in making money than helping you improve your business.
You also need to look at how busy the article marketing forum is. Are there a good amount of posts being made every day? If there are then the signs are good. If you have a question you are more than likely to get an answer. You don't need to see hundreds of posts made every day, but a forum where nobody posts is no help to you at all.
When you are searching for your article marketing forum try to check that the information on the site is relevant and up to date. You will be able to see how proven the advice is by looking at comments and replies on the threads. Good solid advice will normally be followed by comments made by people that have used the system successfully.
You should also look at the atmosphere on the forum. Is there a good spirit there? On a good forum you will find members get on well and support each other. This is the type of place you want to become involved with. Forums with a good community are normally there to help you grow your business without simply wanting you to buy something from them.
An article marketing forum
that is suitable for you and your business will possess all of the above qualities and then some. In an article marketing forum like that you are far more likely to learn some effective marketing strategies, as well as making some fantastic connections along the way. Remember as you become more successful you can also help others by passing on your expertise, and this is when you can really begin to feel successful.

Make Money Writing Articles Online With User Content Optimization
By: C.A. Perez
Google's Panda update created a whirlwind storm. It sent marketers scrambling looking for answers. It is no secret. Read any article writing guide on website content writing and most likely it will emphasize SEO techniques and tactics.
Up until now, SEO has been the dominant driving force behind search engine results and the predominant method to make money writing online That is changing. Let me introduce User Content Optimization (UCO), the latest in website content writing. UCO is the new kid on the block, formerly known as quality content.
Why would anyone query a search engine? Common sense would tell you that the searcher was looking for information, for quality content. All he wants is an answer to a question. He may be searching for something to buy or perhaps some entertainment, or even the latest news. Regardless, he is looking for information.
Web of Buzzwords
Yet, how many times have you made a query and found an organic list of sites wanting to blatantly sell you something? If you have had my experience, then you have seen those billboard webpages many times.
They are billboard webpages filled with lots of color, lots of hype, but no substance, no quality content. They are a web of tangled buzzwords suspiciously meant to attract digital spiders in the hopes of ultimately snaring an unsuspecting human with its web content writing of alluring brilliance.
It is no secret that there are two opposing factions in the world of how best to make money writing online, those that promote SEO content writing and those that promote quality website content writing. Does it have to be one or the other?
Article writing guides tend to emphasize SEO techniques and methods over UCO. Common sense should tell you that both methods play important roles in article marketing. You may favor one over the other, but using both, informative quality user content optimization and search engine optimization can sky rocket your ranking over that of your competitors.
Football and Article Marketing
It seems to me that if you decide to be serious about playing football you should know the rules of the game and if you aspire to professionalism, then you must not only play by and learn the rules you must also play on a regulation football field. Not to mention a wide range of unwritten rules called sportsmanship that you abide by.
Professional football is an extremely physical and very competitive sport. But the unwritten law of sportsmanship denies a player the use of illegal drugs or the blatant use of physical violence to gain a competitive edge. In other words, unsportsmanlike conduct is not condoned. It is not always explicitly written in the rule books, but you know it when you see unsportsmanlike conduct.
The game of writing for money (article marketing) is no different.
In one vast sweep, with one block of filtering code Google brought the industry to its knees. Websites crumbled. Giants in the page rank race toppled. Why, because many players were unsportsmanlike. They were not playing by the unwritten rules.
Article marketing is self explanatory. Articles convey information. Articles inform. In its broadest sense the conveyed information is knowledge in various forms like solutions, general facts, news, comparisons, or opinion. Articles convey user content optimization.
The other half of the article marketing label is marketing. Marketing promotes products or ideas with the intent to sell those products or ideas. It is information used to sell product or ideas. Marketing is a much broader term than article. Marketing includes SEO, syndication, back linking and many other tactics.
The operative word in article marketing is not marketing, but article. 'Article' defines the primary type of marketing that is to be conducted. It is not hard to understand. Article marketing is writing for money.
In keeping with the football analogy, think of the football as the product. The idea of writing articles for money is to move the product up the field of page ranks to the coveted goal line of position one page one.
Some players decided that the marketing ingredient of the article marketing game excluded the use of carefully crafted plays of information to reach the goal line.
Imagine a football team that ignores the written and unwritten rules and that decides that they need only pick up the ball and through brute force without 'paragraphic' downs, they cross the goal line and expect a reward. Luckily, that does not happen often in football.
User Content Optimization
User Content Optimization (UCO) internet marketing will soon become the new buzzword, right up there with SEO internet marketing. In fact, it may even receive equal billing. Why?
Because UCO is so much easier to learn, there are no schemes to outwit the search engines and no black hat tactics to compete against. It requires only that the author write articles online that provide informative and relevant articles to his readers. No extra bells and whistles or secret formulas are required for writing articles online for money.
It is not that SEO internet marketing will fall by the wayside. SEO will always be an integral part of the article marketer's methods. With the User Content Optimization model, you write quality content, quality information. The semantic relationships flow naturally and the web searcher gets his information and the search engines reward your efforts with page one position one rankings.
Any article writing guide for internet marketing should emphasize SEO and UCO equally.
It may seem that I am touting an altruistic scenario, not really, Google is on my side. As search engines become more sophisticated in their semantic searching algorithms, the emphasis on content will become more dominant. They are not there yet, but they are moving in that direction. Is Google on your side?
