You may have written the best article since Moses, but nobody is ever going to find it unless you promote it.
You need to submit your article’s URL to article directories. Rewrite a few versions of your article, shorten them a bit and submit these rewrites to sites like ezinearticles and similar article directories. You get an author bio at each site. Use this to link back to your article.
Submit shorter rewrites to sites like SheToldMe, YouSayToo and InfoPirates. These sites give you a share of ad income from your submissions, too, very fair.
All of these links will get you higher Google rankings. They might get you extra visitors, too.
Submit your article feed to RSS sites like Feedage.com.
All this link submitting takes time, but without it you might as well not be writing articles at all, it just goes with the territory.
