Here is an idea for those that want to get a little more exposure out of their articles. You can create what I call mini article websites. These mini websites basically feature an article that you have written for your business.
What you would do is create a sub-domain name (myname.mysite.com) and you would upload your mini article website in this sub-domain name. You can use a index.html page if you wish but if you want a more seo'd url you can create your page after the title of your article and then redirect your index to the more seo'd url.
For example here are 3 mini article websites that I created for Marketers Domination
Article Marketing Guide - Article written by Rach
Article Marketing Campaign - Article written by Terra
Article Submission Service - Article written by Ord
If you go to the main (without the page .html) you will notice it redirects to the seo'd page url. This is done by adding a simple .htaccess file to your sub-domain name. The .htaccess file will contain a few simple lines such as:
If you notice each mini article website has its own content which is basically an article that was written. I added the top of the page text and the join now at the bottom on each site. Because you are using sub-domain names these sites will be seen as a different site to the search engines.
RewriteRule ^index.html$ [replacer_a]
This is a great way to get some extra exposure for your articles + a little link juice going to your main site. (hint: add the copyright and point to your main site). Another benefit to this is if you wanted to do split testing (although we are not using sales copy) then you could see which article actually converts better.
Once you have a few mini article websites up and running then you want to make sure you build some backlinks just as you would with an article you post on MD.
