Ways To Use Your Author Resource Box or Signature:

The most powerful ways to use your signature to promote your online home business opportunity are in the Author`s Resource Box or Bio Box as well as the Author`s Profile page when you write articles and submit them to the article directories and in your signature when posting in Forums.

By setting up your signature correctly you can tell the reader a little about yourself as well as anchor your keywords and the url of your website, thereby creating back-links to your website. This is all part of optimizing your articles for the keywords you have selected. Ideally you should write articles based on the theme of your website and place your keywords in the title of the article, the body and in the resource box.

Author`s Resource or Bio Box:

The rules pertaining to the Author's Resource Box differ, so be sure to check the Article Directories` Submission Guidelines to establish how many links you are allowed to put in the Resource Box. Most article directories accept html and three links, so here is an example of how to create a signature when you submit your article to the article directories that accept html:

Your Name (first and last) and a few words about yourself. You can find more information on <a href="http://www your">Add your own keywords here</a> and <a href="http://www your">Add more keywords here</a> by visiting <a href="http://www.your">Your own website url</a>

By creating back-links to your website from the article directories via your published article will not only increase the placement of your article in the search engines but will help your website gain a higher placement too, especially if you are submitting to article directories with a high Google page rank. It is far easier to get your own article on the first page of Google than it is your website, if you choose and use your keywords correctly. So if your article is really interesting and informative and holds the readers` attention to the end, there is a great chance that they will click through to your website from the Author`s Resource Box to find out more about what you have to offer.

Bear in mind that once you submit your article to an article directory, it in turn syndicates your article to other article directories and the back-links to your website are increasing all the time which will promote your online home business opportunity to a higher position in the search engine results.

Author`s Profile or Bio Page:

Some article directories give you the option to complete an Author`s Profile Page, which is like a large Resource Box. This gives you the great opportunity to write quite a lot of detail about yourself and your online home business opportunity as well as being able to anchor a lot of your keywords and the different urls of your website. This profile page link is placed on each of your article pages, so there is a good chance that if the readers find your article informative and interesting they will click through to your profile page to find out more about you and your online home business opportunity.

Forum Signature:

In Forums you also have the opportunity to set up your signature, although the code is normally different to that of the article directories, but you can find instructions for setting up your signature under the FAQ (frequently asked questions) Section in the forum. The large forums are frequently crawled by the search engines so when you start a new topic or make a post in a forum your signature will be providing back-links and advertising your online home business opportunity automatically.

The Benefits Of Fully Utilizing Your Signature:

The article directories get crawled by the search engines often so by submitting articles on a regular basis will ensure that the search engine finds your back-link and in turn will crawl your website regularly too.

If your website already appears on the first page of Google for certain keywords, and you write an article optimized with the same keywords, it will be no time at all before you will occupy at least two slots on the first page of Google.

You can go one step further to achieve absolutely magical results. Instead of submitting the same article to a few directories, take that article and change the title and body of the article around a bit and optimize it for different keywords that your website receives high placement for and submit a different version of your article to different directories. Be sure to redo your signature with the new keywords. In other words you will be submitting more unique articles to the directories thereby supplying fresh content. You could then see different versions of your article from different article directories all appearing on page one of Google along with your website!

Although the effects of article marketing take a while to kick-in before you start seeing the results of free organic traffic to your website, once you start submitting articles regularly and consistently you will be gaining valuable, free and targeted traffic to your online home business opportunity website.

Articles spread far and wide very quickly on the internet and stay around for years, resulting in a very solid and rewarding method to promote your online home business opportunity.
