Featured Article by Article Marketer – 03/20/09 (Hayward, CA)

The article marketing community celebrated a significant milestone this week, with the 200 millionth article distribution from Article Marketer.

With 15,000+ authors using Article Marketer to distribute their syndicated content, the article distribution service remains the industry leader in managed content distribution.

“We’ve experienced a boom in growth as business owners and marketers continue to recognize the value of being able to distribute their content to a huge base of online publishers and editors,” says Chris Ellington, CEO of IPNM, Article Marketer’s parent company. “Companies see immediate and lasting benefit from developing their subject-matter authority by adding content to the Internet in the form of relevant articles. It offers the best ROI out there right now.”

The company took 33 months to reach its first 100 million article distributions, and took only 11 months to reach its second 100 million. Article Marketer continues to aggressively seek growth through expanding both sides of its business: adding new author accounts on a daily basis, and reaching out to ever more publishers of online content who see the company’s 15,000+ authors as a great wealth of content. Article Marketer is already noted as having the largest active publisher list available in one outlet.

Carol Palmatier, VP for Marketing at ArticleMarketer.com says, “As the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) industry continues to evolve, we’ve seen an influx of author accounts from businesses and individuals seeking to leverage the Google ranking algorithms. Companies now see that SEO effort as critical to their survival in this economic climate. We’re a major resource for companies looking for that help.” She notes that the company is poised for continued growth, adding other services and a vast array of informational articles, eBooks, blogs, etc. They are also active in most social networking systems.

“One of the main things Google looks at is the number backlinks to your site, and perhaps the easiest way to increase those is to add content about your products and services to the vast Internet databases of published content,” Palmatier says. She says that each article has the potential to be distributed up to several hundred times or more during its life at Article Marketer, producing potentially hundreds of backlinks per article.

Palmatier, a noted Internet marketer herself, goes on to say, “Our syndicated content distribution system is absolutely Google-friendly. It puts the author at no risk of Google’s so-called “duplicate content penalties.”

ArticleMarketer.com offers several levels of membership accounts, ranging from free accounts with access to a limited number of publishers, to a lifetime account with “constant and never-ending distribution.” They report growth in all account areas, and run two blog sites for authors offering tips, information, ideas, and support.
