|Do you mean write an article on your OWN web site? Or in an article directory linking and then link it to a page on your site that you want to rank well for long tail keywords? |
Yes, I can simply blog about something on my own website without getting external links pointing to it, and I rank quickly, but usually low in the top 10 (ex. position 8). I have about 10 million links pointing to my site, so that probably helps a good bit.

15 days ago I added internal anchor text for one of my long tail sites, I had the internal anchor text deoptimized for years (because of some -950 problems) but now I wanted to test the whole power of internal anchors ...
Guess what happened, nothing, no change in traffic ..
This is a huge site with about 100k URLs and the anchor text changes were huge.

Well - all my changes are doing my site really well now in the serps!
New Pages, More relevant and easy navigation, easier to purchase, crawled every 3 days, most up to date products in the country!
Guess what - goofle has dropped the site down 2 positions.
Well theres 2 months down the pan.
Warning - working on your site CAN HARM ITS POSITIONS.

Oh man - Serp now looks as follows for my term. Theres only 8 spots in the organic being returned - they are.
1. Profile spammer
2. Same profile spammer
3. Same Profile spammer
5. Same Profile spammer
6. My Site
7. Same Profile spammer

There MUST be a way to out-spam the spammer, no?!?!?!?!
Maybe that's what it has come to.
On a side note...
I went looking for a top level domain for a particular keyword that is highly relevant to my niche ecommerce site (think something along the lines of "widget statues").
All the TLDs were taken - every single one - except for the .me TLD. That was the country-specific TLD for Montenegro, and then was opened up for worldwide use.
I didn't check who registered all those TLDs, but it is enough of a niche to know that they must be spammers.

Planet13 - I dont trust goofle. I dont trust their competence.
All the sites there are keyword1keyword2someword or letters.
I can noway report all those sites with mine in serp also without also getting hit if they go down the serp because the domains are so similar.
My site looks vastly different than the spammers when visited - all his are the same - same template colors etc. But they may not visit - they may just go to the serp and tag the lot as the domains are so similar.
Its a risk I cant take - I would rather just keep adding content - but its very hard to get motivated now for certain.

Sorry Planet - I see "out spam" the spammer - I thought I read "out the spammer" and thought you meant report him.
I dont really want to spam this domain - I am actually quite proud of it - and the users love it - it sells at 1 in 20 uniques.
