ezinearticles and links

I submitted my first article on ezinearticles, and I thought that it was pretty good actually. It was definitely within their character count criteria, too.

At the end of the article, in the "bio" box, where you get to put your links, I put links to my ecommerce store.

After waiting for a few days for it to get approved, they get back to me, and don't approve it, becuase the links to my ecommerce store "didn't add content to the article".

Anyone else ever have this problem? Are you even able to post links to your ecommerce site? I thought that was basically the whole darn point of writing the article (give people good info in the article, then get a reward, which is links to your ecommerce site).

I don't know why they complain about the ecommerce site thing, since if its not an ecommerce site, its just going to be an affiliate link instead; I have a hard time beleiving that anyone will write an article just for giggles.

Any advice?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Sounds to me like they want the links to support your piece instead of just being a byline.

I agree. I have done a few with ezine. I use it for links deeper into my site but not on my ecommerce site.

Try again, maybe you will get a different rep. It sure is possible to have a topical article with links to your ecommerce site within the body of the article using appropriate keywords.

Make sure what you're talking about is really related to your business or your site,you're expert on the field. want to know more about me or my business?just check my site :). do add some info about your business at the end of your article.

The resource box needs to compliment the subject of the article. Unrelated links will be rejected as SPAM.

Another important point to realize is that the quality of your article will directly correlate with the amount of backlinks that it generates and a targeted article is ideal.

Write your articles like you market your business. Don't target one audience with the article and then link to another that's totally unrelated. Better yet, write an article about a specific product that you sell on your site and include two links in your resource box, one to your index and another to the specific product.
