For those who are just starting their online businesses, finding ways to reach your customers means using many different methods that include search engine optimization (SEO) is vital to your success. While posting content on your website is the primary means of drawing in new web traffic through search engines, you can also expand your reach by posting articles on established article directory websites.

What are Article Directory Websites

Also known as content farms, an article directory is a site that offers articles on many different subjects. Generally speaking, article directories may accept articles from any source. However, the article must be original, unique and not be published anywhere else.

Most articles are roughly 450 words give or take 50 words and there are usually guidelines in terms of using proper grammar, spelling and structure that must be abided before the article can be submitted. In addition, an article submission usually includes the name of the author and a link to their website as well.

Sometimes there is a waiting period for submissions that may be as long as several days before the article will appear. The purpose of the waiting period is to eliminate duplicate, spam, spun or poorly written articles for quality purposes. Once approved, the article will be placed in a particular category so that readers can find it quickly.

The Advantages of Using Article Directories
There are several advantages to using an article directory for those who want to expand their reach to find new web traffic.

Established Source: Article directory websites represent a well established site that has standards which means that your article will garner additional respect that would not be possible if you just posted on your website or blog.

New Readers: Although most people will find your article through search engines, there will be some who come across your article on their own. Article directories do have many readers who will look for new information about categories that are of interest to them.

However, it must be noted that establishing links to article directories is actually not good for your SEO. The Google Penguin release in 2012 basically punished sites that used article directories as backlinks, so do not use them for link building purposes.

Building SEO Credibility

In order to maximize the SEO potential of the article, you will need to create a good, solid, well written article that features at least 500 words with a keyword density of around 1% to 2%, but be careful of keyword stuffing. You usually can use links to your articles, but be careful as many article directories do have limits. Multiple anchor texts are encouraged as well, so include them as needed.

However, the most important part is to provide interesting information about a particular subject that is written in a solid, to-the-point manner. You don’t want to waste words or add unnecessary bloat to the article when simply getting to the point works the best.

Smart use of article directory websites can really help establish your efforts to build interest and web traffic back to your website.

Proms are a great time to look your very best and are full of celebration non-alcoholic punch and dancing.  But sometimes, it’s the little things that people take for granted, that are the most important.  Even though you may have your dress picked out and bought those pretty little shoes, a hair stylist and that date to take you by the arm; have you sorted your prom corsage yet?  

If you haven’t and don’t know the first thing about this small, but nevertheless important accessory, then please read on as we give you 5 great tips for selecting the perfect one for the big day.

How Much Do They Cost And Who Pays?
Normally, it would be your male date that is expected to buy your corsage.  However, as it is important that your corsage matches nicely with your prom dress, you should at least offer help in choosing the one you want.  The general rule of thumb when it comes to cost is that you can expect it to cost around 10% of the dress’s price.

What Type or Color Of Corsage Should I Get?
Corsages come in various styles, however the important thing is that the color matches or contrasts the color of your dress.  The choice of color is only a small part when it comes to picking the right one though.  For starters, you need to decide how you are going to wear it and choose whether you want it to be on a pin or ribbon.  Secondly and rather obviously, you need to choose your flower.  But, after you have chosen your flower; pin, ribbon or bracelet, you then have the option to choose from a wide selection of accessories including bows, feathers, small sprays of flowers and many more.  The choice is limitless and up to you? Nowadays, though the emphasis seems to be on going big and flashy rather than reserved and subtle.

When Should You Buy It?
As has already been mentioned above, you need to make sure you have picked your dress out before you begin looking for your corsage.  Although you don’t need to arrange it months in advance, it is a good idea to get it done early.  You will pick it up on the day of the prom because it is a live flower arrangement and you want it to be as fresh as possible.

Do You Have To Wear It on Your Wrist?
The most common way to wear a corsage is on the wrist.  However, that does not mean that you have to.  It is more important to wear it where you feel most comfortable and what suits your dress best. Wearing it on the wrist is a very modern approach in fact, as traditionally it would be worn on the bodice of your prom dress near to your shoulder.  This would only make sense though if your dress had sleeves.  There is also the option as well to wear your corsage in your hair, as long as your hair style can accommodate it.  

With all of the above in mind, the important thing about your corsage is that it looks good with your dress and overall outfit and it is worn where is most comfortable for you and where it will enhance your dress.  As long as you keep those few things in mind, it will be the perfect cherry on a cake of a dress.

In order for a business or personal website to be on the Internet where it can be seen by people all over the world, a website hosting service is needed. A Website hosting service is a company that provides space on a server and internet connections to the client so they can get their website up and running and seen by other people from their computers, tablets, and smart phones. There are a number of different web hosting services to choose from and a number of different web hosting packages as well. In fact, it can be quite confusing finding the right service to meet your specific needs. Here are a few tips on what you should look for when choosing a website hosting service.

Does the Service Have a Variety of Packages to Choose From?
The first thing you need to look at is the types of packages that the web hosts have available to choose from. Most web hosting sites offer everything from free web hosting for small personal sites, to dedicated and cloud hosting. You need to determine, which hosting package best suits your needs and whether or not a particular company offers that type of package. For example free web hosting may be perfect for a personal web page, because the web host makes it money from advertising on your site. However, this is a poor choice for a business site as potential customers don't want to have to wade through thousands of advertisements to find out about your products or services. If you are going to have shared web hosting you need to know how many other websites you will be sharing a server with, the more websites on a single server, the more websites you will have to share resources with. If you are thinking of a dedicated server, which is often used by larger businesses, then you need to know if your server will be managed or unmanaged. 

Percentage of Up Time
Every Website hosting service has down times, do to equipment failure and other problems. However, some web hosts book so many clients or customers that their system can't handle all of the demand and frequently goes down. When a Website hosting service goes down, then your site is not on the Internet, and it can't be seen by potential customers. The more downtime a web hosting site has, the more business you are losing. So look for a hosting service that has a small percentage of down time, so that you can ensure that you can be seen any time of the day or the night with as little interruptions in service as possible.

You also want to look at the cost of the hosting package and make sure it is in keeping with what other companies are charging. A hosting package that is priced a lot higher than the average package or one that is priced far lowers for the same package should be a red flag that there is something going on with this particular hosting service. While there may be a few dollars difference from one company to another, a huge difference in rates over the standard or average fee charged by the industry probably means you should look for another hosting company.

A little thought and research prior to choosing your hosting company, could result in your finding a company you are happy with for many years to come.
