Ezine Articles and Google Indexing

Today, I signed up with Ezine Articles. However, after reading several posts from the Wealthy Affiliate teaching...... I made some mistakes. I copied an article that I had written on one of my Squidoo Len's. Apparently, this is something you don't want to do. The Google crawler is always looking for original content. So, if you copy articles you have already written and submit those to Ezine Articles.... Yup, you guessed it. You won't have original content and Google might overlook your site instead of indexing it.... Whoops! Don't make this mistake. You can write articles about the same exact subject. Just don't copy your previous article word for word.

Also, I learned that you want to have your exact keywords placed several times within your articles (About every 100 words or so) for that keyword to trigger in Google Search (Apparently this is basic Search Engine Optimization). This will give you a higher ranking in the search engine. It also helps to have your sites link on other sites AFTER Google has indexed it. If you put your link on other sites before Google has indexed your site? You run the risk of the crawler overlooking you again! Wheeew.. So much to learn.

Until next post.... God Bless
