(York, Thursday 25 October 2012) The article marketing site, today revealed how confusing links in articles can really be and if you decide to use links where they should go in your article to get the best results.

Most people have probably heard that article marketing is great for driving traffic to a website, but in writing an article you’re wondering where the link comes in. You might be wondering “Should I put it in my article? If not, then where?” Submit YourArticle today share these tips on linking in article marketing.

Put Your Links In The Resource Box: Any links to a websites or web pages that you own would be put in the resource box. In article marketing, the resource box is the one place where you can talk about your own sites and link to your sites. Whenever the article is republished, the resource box with active links should be republished as well. Most submission sites have two resource box fields–one is mandatory (the plain text resource box)  and the other is optional (the HTML resource box).Every publisher that an article submission site will submit to will accept a plain text resource box, so that is why that one is mandatory. Some publishers will accept a HTML resource box, so you also have the option of creating one of those and having it submitted to any publisher who accepts HTML in the resource box.

So, if the publisher accepts HTML, then they’ll submit the HTML resource box. If the publisher does not accept HTML, then they’ll submit your plain text resource box.

With this in mind, here are some crucial tips for you to remember as you’re creating your resource box(es):

Each publisher will only get one resource box for your article: If you plan on creating both an HTML and a plain text resource box, be sure to include links to any sites that you absolutely want to link to in both resource boxes. Also, be sure that you include just as much biographical information in the HTML resource box as the plain text one. You will also include some sort of motivation for the reader to click the link in each resource box you create. You really need to put the same amount of information in the HTML resource box as the text one though.

The HTML resource box serves a special purpose–it allows you to link keywords to your website. That is really key say, as often  people submit HTML resource boxes that just have linked written out URLs. It is okay to include a linked written out URL in the HTML resource box, but it is better to include a hyperlinked keyword phrase.The linked phrase sends a super powerful message to Google about what your site is about (all of your keywords should reflect what your website is about). That is why people use the HTML resource box.

T he article marketers, are quick to highlight though that linking keywords from your HTML resource box–if you do this, be sure that the same keyword isn’t linked twice A good idea is having a list of 5-10 keyword phrases that you alternate with your article submissions. If you were to link the same phrase each time, it could send up some red flags with Google.

What happens if you put links to your website in the article itself? It helps to know that most publishers don’t want articles that contain links that go to your website. They will consider that “promotional”, or using the article to be like an advertisement for your business or website.“Promotional article” is the  number 1 decline reason among publishers say the article submission site.
