Right now there is a contest going on at ezine articles. If you are not already aware (you should be) then you know that Ezine Articles is a great place to submit articles to get better rankings, traffic and more.
The contest is actually just a forced article writing program but it is called HAHD. This is 100 articles in 100 days. Do you think you can write one article a day for 100 days? The single article is not difficult but the really problem for almost anyone is consistency. There is a great prize in this contest, an Ezine Articles coffee cup.
Anyway the 100 articles in 1oo days started at the beginning of this month and I am as bad as anyone, I haven’t submitted one article yet. But instead I thought I would jumpstart things by giving you 5 great ideas for why you should submit articles during this 100 articles in 100 days contest.
1. Backlinks – The single best reason to me to get articles published is not to push traffic to landing pages but instead to get links to those landing pages. This is the best way to rank higher in the Google Serps and get yourself a lot of organic traffic
2. Traffic – The articles themselves are the best way to easily get traffic to a page that could be difficult to rank for. Weight loss traffic, debt and credit sites, are hard to rank well for and 100 articles with all those links could definitely get you hits and sales.
3. Creating a habit – Writing consistently is a habit that will make you a lot of money over time. It is easy to read forums and check stats but really the only way to make a difference in your finances is to actually make those action habits a reality.
4. Becoming a better writer – Writing a lot of articles makes you faster and consistently as well as improve your research and automation processes. I have always found that my mind works a lot better when I am doing a lot of article writing and that can be the case for you too.
5. The awesome coffee mug – I may have 100 coffee mugs already but I really love the mousepad ezinearticles sent me last year so why not add a mug to the collection.
