For article marketing to be successful, you need to know which articles are bringing traffic to your website. You need to know how most people are accessing your articles and from there, accessing your website. That means you need to do some article tracking.
Article tracking is easier and more important than people imagine. There are thousands of article directories so why continue sending articles to directories that are not generating any traffic at all for your website? Do you want to know which or your reciprocal or one-way links are bringing traffic to your website? Without article tracking, you do not get this kind of helpful information to help you target your marketing effectively.
Article tracking can be done in several easy ways:
1. Buy software such as Adtracker. That will give you a unique link which will show you the source of any clicks. It will track your website traffic and put it into a table for you so you will be able to see at a glance which article directories are sending your website traffic.
2. You should be able to see which pages of your own website get most traffic. If you have each article link back to a different page, by viewing the detailed traffic breakdown you can get an indication of what link the website traffic are entering your site from. That shows you which articles and which article directories are most effective for your article marketing.
3. You can use the same technique to have everyone from a specific article entering your website at a particular page.
Tracking your articles allows you to make your article marketing very effective. Do you want to learn more about how I do it? I have just completed a brand new guide to successful article marketing, 'Article Writing and Marketing Guide.'
