I did a few upgrades this weekend…all of my blogs as well as my “Article Submission” website.
The article submission site upgrade is really cool. Not only did the company that created the software fix a bunch of bugs that I have complained about, they also added a really cool feature. Now, I can pull article submissions from Isnare.com. Isnare.com is a huge article submission website. Many people post articles to that site. The new feature in my software allows me to map my own categories to Isnare’s categories. When someone submits an article to Isnare now, it automatically posts on my website, filling it up.
Yesterday, before I did the upgrade, I have about 60 articles. Right now, I have 146. That’s a pretty good improvement. You may be asking yourself, “What about duplicate content?” I am not too concerned. I was never under the impression that people were going to write unique articles for my site only. I think people write the article once and then go around from article site to site, copying and pasting that same article.
I have had a semi-decent stream of new authors and article submissions, but this is certainly going to help.
