We've all heard it... "Content IS King" and for good reason because it IS as far as the Internet is concerned.
And when it comes to web surfers, they come online for two reasons, One is to check there email and reason number Two is to search the web for "Information".
How do you think the Internet received the reputation as the "Information Super-Highway"?
Because thats what its primary purpose was before they decided to commercialize it to what it is today.
And... what do 'Articles' contain?
The answer is quite simple... "Information".
So, what does this have to do with you?
Be the one who supplies it.
It's that simple.

Website owners need fresh content to keep there visitors and/or subscribers coming back, where as newsletter publishers also need fresh content for there "email" newsletters that they publish and send to there subscriber base.
Remember the two reasons I discussed earlier about WHY web surfers come online. BINGO!
Reason #3. They generate Life Long residual Traffic.

Depending on how many 'Opt-In' this is yet another great reason to get started with 'Articles' and another way to generate LOTS of Free targeted traffic.

It gets better. Blogs also use RSS(Real Simple Syndication) to syndicate there content to various search engines, RSS search engines and directories giving you again more FREE exposure through there feed.
