Publishing web-sites provide a forum for visitor to register, becoming authors so they can publish articles on the site. These articles usually include backlinks to the author’s web-site helping to build traffic. The best know example is Ezines. The ArticleBlot website is an fairly extensive article site with over 201,000 articles. StartArticles is less well known however, it offers more than 50,000 articles and is constantly updated with new articles.ArticleBlot.com
The ArticleBlot website was created in October 2010. It steadily gained momentum as authors found the site. It has a multinational audience and is easily translated into 8-languages by selecting the flags in the header. There are over 201,000 articles published on the site in 34 general categories. Google has indexed over 87,200 articles. Surprisingly, very little traffic is generated by search engines, most of the traffic is direct (i.e. the visitor has the site bookmarked or types the address into the browser.)
