The Right Tools for Writing Articles

I have written a few articles, and I have posted them to eZinearticles.com. I have received a few extra visitors from them, but not much really.

Now, I have been concentrating writing my e-book and stopped doing other stuff (other than writing posts to my blog).

But today I found something that got me thinking; is article writing (article marketing) a lot easier when you have a software to help you with it?

I don’t know, but it sure seems like it from the sales page of Jonathan Leger.

Instant Article Wizard Pro

He writes that you can create high quality articles on virtually any subject within minutes.

How can that be true?

There are a lot of subjects where I would have no clue what to write about. For instance, if I had to write an article about poker or gambling, without doing any research, I wouldn’t know where to begin.

    I think it’s terrible! Amazon was linking in their developer section to a blog article that was scraped from a prominent internet marketer. I only noticed because I read the article and remembered reading it on someone else’s blog. Searched the title and sure enough!

    Amazon was very quick to respond to my email and fix it, but that’s not always the case. I only bothered contacting because Amazon is so huge I didn’t want to see a scraper get good traffic from them or link juice.

    Ah, you are wrong, not all scraping is bad. There are plenty of blogs out there accused of scraping but their purpose isn’t to steal content, but rather to find, monitor, and link to content in a particular subject.

    Plus the links are good because you are linked to from a page packed full of keywords related to your article.

    Also if you are seeing the links on your wordpress dashboard that means those sites are helping the authority of your own blog.

    Scraping to steal content isn’t cool but you got to distinguish between that and linking to your articles and fully giving you credit!

    I’ve been finding “splogs” or scrapers of my site popping up recently. It really peeves me. For God’s sake, be original. Don’t be lazy. Write your own content.
