Affiliate Article Marketing

Affiliate article marketing is a great way to make money online, and there’s a few ways that you can approach this for maximum benefit. In this post I’ll be discussing this topic and providing some practical tips for getting the best results from your articles.

What is Affiliate Article Marketing?

For those of you that don’t know, article marketing is where you write articles and submit these to article directories with intent of driving traffic to an affiiate offer to make money!

The concept is rather simple and there are some great advantages of using it, some being that you don’t necessarily need a website to make any money, and another advantage is that the articles themselves can rank fast in the search engines if they are published on authority domains such as

Article Traffic

Article affiliate marketing can be a good source of traffic generation. The reason for this I’ve just mentioned above, which is that when you write an article and publish it on authority domains, these articles can rank high in the search engines and usually require a lot less backlinks to do so. If you can get an article to rank you should get free traffic from it.

affiliate marketingThis can work in your favor as the affiliate marketer, because you can grow a pretty large net of traffic capturing articles if you consistently write articles.

The key here is to find the sweet spot with the keywords you target. If you get the right competition level, your articles can rank without needing much, if any, backlinking at all.

If you keep publishing articles and linking back to your money site from within in them, then the traffic will slowly but surely begin to increase. It’s the same concept of many little streams create a big river.

I use this method for web pages that I know are converting for me, and simply need more traffic to make me more money. The reason I do this, is because if I have a 20 article site, there is only a limited number of keywords I can target with that site itself, unless I add more pages of course.

Once all the pages in the site are ranking in Google, I’ll then look at what pages are making me money, and get some articles written on longer tail keywords that work with the pages I have identified as winners, and I will link to these pages from my articles to drive more traffic to them and ultimately more sales.

So essentailly articles act like a huge octopus with unlimited tentacles, that can reach out and pull in more traffic to your sites. This makes sense if you have a webpage that is converting, and want to milk it for all it’s worth.

Increasing Click Through Rates

Once you start to get traffic to your articles, it makes sense to maximise the click through to your money sites pages from them. The more clicks the more sales you make.

NOTE: I’ll be running a live coaching webinar early next month with a person who’s an absolute master of this technique and a very experienced at affiliate internet marketing, so stay tuned for that one, however for now, one quick tip is to make sure you don’t give away too much info in your article, and in particular don’t write a conclusion.

At the end of your article you need to leave the reader hanging. By this I mean you need to have given them great info in the article and then explain that the rest of the important details can be found when they click your link. If you give too much info or provide a concise summary then there is less likelihood of the reader wanting to click through.

affiliate-article-marketingBacklink Juice

Of course the other great thing about article sites is that you can use them for getting backlinks for SEO purposes.

When you’re using article sites for traffic you should still use them for backlinks at the same time.

However when my focus is backlinks, I tend to not focus on the keywords in the article, only in the link itself, and also don’t backlink the article as heavily either because I am not trying to get it to rank in the search engines.

My main goal when getting backlinks is pure volume and then making sure Google has at least found the articles I published. Again I’m not that worried if these articles rank highly in Google, I just want Google to find them and count the links in them.

When I employ this method I use my own article spinner Rapid Rewriter to product the unique content that I need, then I blast these articles out to as many article sites as I can. It’s a good idea to keep a track of where your articles are after you’ve published them. By this I mean keep a record of the URL’s once they have been accepted by each article site.

The reason for this is that the next thing you should aim to do is create RSS feeds from the articles and submit these RSS feeds to RSS aggregators. Doing this will help you get your article indexed by Google.

So in closing, I think affiliate article marketing works well for both traffic and SEO, the key is to be patience and keep publishing content.

    Hi Matt,

    Excellent points on using articles for affiliate marketing. I really gravitate towards techniques that not only disperse links for people to follow but also serve as quality backlinks for the search engines …

    Oh and btw … I hear congrats on becoming a dad are in order … Enjoy every moment with them!

    I’ve honestly never tried article marketing, especially with affiliate offers. I’m more about paid traffic, but I can see this as a very viable source of “free” traffic.

    Nice post.

    How to create RSS feeds from articles?

    Are you trying to say:

    Take the url of each individual article, combine them together to make a rss feed?

    good information even though it’s a bit confusing as you talk about not having a website and doing affiliate marketing with articles. Ezine articles does not allow that as I’m sure you know. Articles base is where I would put affiliate links. As articles base is in “no follow” link and they allow affiliate links, this is where I put my affiliate links in an article.

    Also some article sites do not allow links to other article sites and your article will be flagged. If you are using a rewriter you probably should create a spreadsheet for all of the various quirks of different article sites. I would only bother with the top 50 sites at the most and most of the time I only use 25.

    It just occurred to me you may be able to cloak your link and your article may not be flagged. Has anyone had any experience with this?

    And congratulations to you Matt!

    Hi Matt,
    Useful article there.
    I do a lot of article marketing but am seeing less effective results lately with pure article marketing.

    You really need diversity in your back links I think..


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Terry

    Oh yes, you can’t just rely on article for your links, they are part of the overall link plan for sure.

    Hello Matt:

    Thanks for the valuable post, I just finished up writing another article which has just been submitted to a few directories including EzineArticles. As always you deliver right on time, and I will continue to apply the education and resources that you provide.

    Thank you,

    I have published a lot of articles to many directories, but can very few click throughs to my site. Of course, I do get backlinks for SEO purposes. I attempt to publish meaningful content. I must be doing something wrong.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi James

    It might be the style of article you have written, by this I mean perhaps you need to not give them all the info in the article, so it forces the reader to click through for more. Also make sure you are targeting the right competition of keywords so your articles get traffic by rankings at the top of Google.

    this is awesome info again . But i find that there are lots of strategies for article marketing but ezine doesnt allow affiliate linking so how do we get around this

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hey Neil

    Yeah you have to link to some form of langing page from Ezines, this can be a free hosted blogger site even, but best to have your own site.



  9. November 16, 2010 at 9:48 am | Permalink

    Hey Matt, thanks for this, really good post.

    @Sky, go to Ezinearticles, load your profile and there you’ll have option to fetch your profile RSS feed with all your articles in it. Really coll stuff actually.

    Thanks Matt for your great posts. I am finding your video course extremely useful, you include small details which make all the difference. I am using articles to drive traffic to my site. Am way down the list in the rankings at present but will keep on keeping on! Nice to hear an Aussie voice too. Looking forward to the rest of the videos. Another thing I like about them is that they are not too long and filled with information.
    Congratulations on the addition to your family.

    Even though, we think we somewhat know how to do article marketing, we need good old reminders. At least I do for sure….

    Hi, Matt I like affiliate article marketing its quick and so profitable but slow for getting back links. The quickest way I found to get back links is social bookmarking site quick and more longer lasting.

    Good post, looking forward to the webinar. I use article marketing and any tips on getting higher CTRs will be welcomed.

  15. November 16, 2010 at 10:52 am | Permalink

    Very impressed with this article. I have been putting too much info into my articles. I now realize that I have to write enough to generate interest but have the reader wanting more.

  16. November 16, 2010 at 11:03 am | Permalink


    Why would you not want to get your article ranked as well. I found where one of my pages related to a keyword was ranked on page two of Google along with two other pages from directories featuring my spun article. So here I was appearing three times on page two and felt proud of that thinking more people would ultimately find me.

    Is this not as good as if I just had my site page ranking on page two?

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hey Simon

    I do want my article to rank well, what I am referrring to in the post is when I am doing mass article submissions for links, that my core focus is on the backlink not the rankings and traffic.

    Hi Matt

    Just a quick one. For every article written,should I use an automated tool like article bot to submit the same article to many places for backlinks or is it better to just send the article to one directory such as ezine? I have heard waaaay to much conflicting info on this so some clarity would be much appreciated. Thanks for the useful post.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hey Bradely

    Yes I always use article submission software to do this.

    Hi Matt

    Thanks for this article on article marketing I am looking to promote my new site which is in the offline cat, I am using only ezine for this, is it not the case that you can only send the one article to only one article site, due to dup content, ?

    Do you think video marketing is more effictive that article marketing?

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hey Mike

    Yes you need to spin the article with an article spinner in order to re-submit the article as unique content or it will be picked up as duplicate.

  19. November 16, 2010 at 11:58 am | Permalink

    Hi Max,
    The important thing to remember with this method is that you do not get instant results. You have to be patient and keep submitting articles before you notice anything substantial happening.

  20. November 16, 2010 at 12:04 pm | Permalink

    Well Done Matt , that why I love Affiliate Article Marketing as you can used one article and spin it and produce more unique article before sending it. The other thing building backlink from the authority site on the net such as Online Newspaper (NY times) and other google owns sites such as youtube, blogger and more.

    Great article marketing tips again Matt. Thanks heaps, building back links to articles does work. I like your point not to write a conclusion so that people will want to click through for more 🙂

    Another form of article marketing you didn’t mention is submitting content to private blog networks. These are not so much for creating direct traffic like on ezinearticles, but for moving your chosen keywords used in your anchor text up in Google so you in turn get organic traffic from Google.

    Thanks again for sharing your tips to us so we can all keep learning.

    I never innitialy had the dough for paid traffic so article mkt was where I started. I think it’s (2nd to video mkt), the most powerful form of mkt online.

    Especially if you’re riding a new niche. For resource box CTR, if you can get it up to 50% that’s good.

    Another very good article from Matt! I am gonna take some of your advice for article marketing… Thanks

  24. November 16, 2010 at 1:24 pm | Permalink

    Affiliate marketing and article marketing really do fit nicely together. The only thing you have to remember is to keep the articles informational and not salesy. If there too salesy they will be rejected (especially by EzineArticles). Good tip about keeping track of your article URLs so you can submit them to RSS feeds. This is something I used to always forget to do.

  25. November 16, 2010 at 2:07 pm | Permalink

    I use article marketing a lot but have never submitted the rss feeds of an article so will definitely be looking into that!
    Thanks for your great articles!

    Hi Matt,

    Although I have written about 250 articles thus far it hasn’t been clear until now what could be the cause of varying CTRs. Most of the time I’ve tried to give as much information in the article as I could squeeze in, which has probably has worked against me.

    I wish you had posted this after I completed my 1st article (LOL).

    Thanks for such a clear and practical posting.

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks again Matt for sharing with us.

    I always seem to learn something from you. This time I learned not to give away all the info to the reader. I unfortunately have been doing this. It makes a lot of sense not to tell them everything so they get excited to visit your website.

    Keep up the great work and have fun!

    Great advice as always Matt

  30. November 16, 2010 at 6:06 pm | Permalink

    Great Post once again Matt. Your SEO and Link building advice has helped alot on my journey.

    I agree with article marketing, but I prefer to focus on the traffic they give me rather than Google Rankings. Google has gotten too finicky and putting my business in their control is a gamble. However, I get a lot of traffic directly through my articles, so that I don’t have to rely on search rankings alone for traffic.

  31. November 16, 2010 at 6:35 pm | Permalink

    The best places I have found to submit articles to that have the highest impacts are authority sites in my niche that I guest author for. Yes it takes a bit more time as you would have to write a high quality article just for them (no spinning) but the reward has always been much greater than the same time I spend submitting to article directories.

    No only is the link juice is much more powerful but other benefits include instant authority in the mind of their dedicated readers while also tapping into a high quality reader base. These readers tend to start a link chain reaction, on their blogs and social media, quicker and with a higher impact than that you get from any article directory. Just my thoughts.

  32. November 16, 2010 at 6:59 pm | Permalink

    I have found Amazine and go articles to be very good at making your links count in the google index. As for getting your articles ranked Matt, I have a question. If you are targeting a long tail keyword, would you need lose part of the search traffic when people land on your article from the SE and then not follow through to your site? Would it not be better to eventually rank your own page instead?

    I’ll look forward to that webinar Matt.

    Hi Matt…Good info.

    You mentioned “Once all the pages in the site are ranking in Google, I’ll then look at what pages are making me money”.

    Can someone explain to me what rss feed is please. I am new to seo and just wanted to understand it..please explain as a process of a, b and c.

    When doing article marketing, can you submit the same article to different directories or they have to different? And when you do submit, how often can you submit articles to directories…everyday for how long?

    I herd that press releases are much better for backlinking purposes.

  35. November 16, 2010 at 8:24 pm | Permalink

    I may be able to answer your question. Alot of people have the same concerns as you. Aren’t you competing against yourself in the rankings. Yes and no.

    When you write an article for an article directory you need to bait it in a way that you give so much of the story. Let’s say you do a list article with 5 great ways to (keywords and benefit). Well make sure you offer 10 more that are sure-fire ways to (keywords and benefit) in the byline or sneak a link within the article. This way you can hopefully capture as much traffic from their rankings as possible.

    If the directory does jump you in a long tail search. But as you continue with your link campaign you should jump ahead of them. Be sure you have any content with your targeted terms indexed first. This gives you the upper hand.

    Most directories are not all that well optimized and do little linking to articles submitted to them. Shouldn’t be hard to out SEO them.

    When I do articles for authority sites then yes it makes it more difficult but the benefits are much greater and more link juice is passed. Not to mention I get more residual links from their dedicated following (blogs, other authority sites, and social media) which article directories don’t. Some people may republish an article from an article directory but they tend to be low quality sites that use them.

  36. November 16, 2010 at 10:22 pm | Permalink

    Thanks for a great post Matt.

    That’s a great point of using an article spinner for backlinks and manually submitting keyword rich articles to authority directories for traffic.

  37. November 16, 2010 at 10:56 pm | Permalink

    The concept of building links TO articles is new to me. When you, guys, submit hundreds of articles, how can you ever manage to build links to each of them?

    Or are the links built only to those special (“keyword”?) articles?

    Thanks, Matt, for these thought provoking posts.

  38. November 17, 2010 at 12:24 am | Permalink

    Excellent as always Matt
    At some point could you do a post expanding on how to go about doing the RSS links. I have started to use article marketing but I have a real mental block with RSS.

  39. November 17, 2010 at 2:08 am | Permalink

    Good post, Matt…You are correct on the article writing thing. I do notice that I sometimes will give a little too much information in the article that may satisfy the reader not to continue on to my site(s). I will definitely take a hard look at your advice here. Thanx again…Don

    do you have a list of the RSS aggregators that you submit to? Do you submit to them manually, or do you have software that does it? I’m trying to write my own RSS submission app, but I’m having issues with sites that require more information other than the RSS URL.

    Hey Matt,

    I have been writing original articles and posting them on my site. Then, after they are indexed, I have been sending them to article directories. Ezinearticles won’t accept them due to duplicate content, but many others will.

    Do you think this is worthwhile for building backlinks, or should I be spinning them first?


  50. November 17, 2010 at 10:37 pm | Permalink

    The idea of building backlinks to the articles was new for me.

    How do you, guys, manage to build backlinks to those hundreds of articles that you submit?

    Or do you build them only to a few chosen ones? Those “keyword” articles, perhaps?

    Hi Matt. Always great info. I also love to use AMA for back links. I know you do too.

  53. November 18, 2010 at 2:48 am | Permalink

    I think I am suffering from too much advice… reading too much on backlinks.. but I try to use Matt as my anchor…
    I think I may-be mis-read something along the line.
    I know Matt says to only use anchor links in the ezine and other articles. Not to use the url like ezine tells you to. so I have been doing that. Now I read somewhere that those two anchor links cannot be the same KW or go to the same page. if they are the same KW and go to the same page Google counts it just as one link.
    This confused me as I thought the deal was to make the links match the keyword in the article . sometimes they will go to a page with the same KW and other times a related page.
    Can you all help clear this up for me?

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Thesue

    You should always try to use anchor text in your links, not the URL on its own. Also there is no point in having more than one link to the same page from an article, that would not be any more beneficial than the first link.

    All the best


  54. November 18, 2010 at 3:27 am | Permalink

    Hi Matt,
    I read one article before that says duplicate articles can also build backlinks for your site. I am not so convinced with this, although the article was from a well-known Internet marketer, because I read others who contradict this theory. How can a dup article still provide backlinks for your site if it will only be ignored by the SE. Can you clarify this further? Thanks for the valuable info.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Tess

    There are many theories flying around the internet about duplicate content, I personally think you should not use duplicate content, so I always spin my content.

    Hi there. First of all, congrats for giving birth to the next generation Internet Marketer :). Hope U will be a cool dad here onwards.

    Then I would like to purchase your Rapid Rewriter software since i found it’s promising unlike the other spinners out there. But to be frank, the primary reason that I want that product is because you promised to share your complete backlinking strategy if I buy the product. So that’s the first thing I focus.

    And i hope that I won’t get disappointed with that blueprint of yours. You have included all your secrets of link building tactics, right? 🙂 Hope so!!! If those tricks are still working, I would be glad. If there is any change in the mentioned things, please reveal.

    Waiting for your reply..

    Hey Matt thank you for the great info again! I’m only a newbie in internet marketing and I have to say A GIANT THANK YOU to you as your info has helped me start getting somewhere, your free stuff is better than paid stuff. I have recently bought rapid re-writer with your backlink course, man i have to say AWESOME, I have learned so much from you ( I have even been implementing what I’ve been learning), thanks again keep up the great work.

    Great piece on article marketing and I can honestly say it’s been the way I got started and I still write articles today. I made my 1st 3 sales online just by writing articles and I couldn’t believe how well it worked. I still get a lot of views since they are online until the end of time now.

    For anyone just wanting to get started. take Matt’s advice and give it a try. It does really work and it works really well.

    o tried some articles and they were accepted and published at Ezine, but i don’t believe i ever saw much traffic from them, so i stopped believing in articles to generate traffic – maybe i was wrong ?

    the idea of don’t tell everything so as to leave people a reason to go to your site, makes sense.

    If you keep publishing articles and linking back to your money site by providing a good video just like the one you show us on this post, then the traffic will surely increase eventually.

    And off cause, with the right competition level, your post can rank without needing much of back-link at all.

    Really appreciate your post, please keep us update!

    Article writing is on my ‘must do’ list for 2011, so far I’ve only written two. 🙄 At the moment I’m sending all traffic to my blog, which I regard as a central hub, but I would consider direct links to converting affiliate pages.

    Thanks for the advice Matt, I’ll be back for more.

    Hi Matt, Constructive critism here I hope!!!!

    Good article I was very interested in your article spinner Rapid Rewriter however when I clicked on the link, I found it impossible to find the buy button. I scrolled down to the end of the article and found it impossible to see what was the real price. You’re also pushing other products at me, I just want the article spinner. Your info on the product is just two long, you should list the features and price at the top, for reviews you could provide links to anchor points further down the page dedicated to product reviews.

    The page is just too confusing, you should simplify, I read a book Don’t Make Me Think would definitely reccommend.

    Hey Mary

    Perhaps you could send me one of your sales letters for me to learn from? Seems like you know a fair bit
    about selling online.

    Look forward to reviewing your style.

    This is some great information. Finding the right competition level on your keywords is key. One way great way to increase the backlinks on your articles is to social bookmark them everywhere … or at least at the places that are dofollow.

    seo and the fundamental of back links works well with article marketing and improving rank.

  78. February 28, 2011 at 4:05 am | Permalink

    Rapid Rewriter could be a good alternative, indeed.

    Great article! I just learnt how to do article marketing a few months back, and finally it makes sense how it all works!

    I Think of your talents as the things you’re really good at. They’re like personality traits. For instance, you may be a very creative person, or a person who’s really good at attending to details or a person with a gift for communicating. Your talents are the base for any successful business venture, including a home-based business.

    Hey Matt, I have been following you and a few other marketers and emplying the tips and advice to my blog and article marketing. For the last several months this advice has helped me pretty much double my monthly income. A few days ago I noticed my amazon sales dropping off. Then I checked for my reviews on google, and most went from page one to have suddenly dropped off. These articles are now ranking high in yahoo, when they didn’t before.
    How do I check what happened on the google side, or just wait a few days to see if this gets corrected on it’s own? Thanks, ken

    Thank you for the tips. I suppose it a case of practise makes for perfection, I have been encouraged from reading this blogg in believing anything is possible once the information and process is understandable
