How to Get Your Articles Listed Number ONE in Google
Once you have submitted to a popular article directory like Squidoo.com or EzineArticles.com, no further work is necessary to get crawled. These directories are crawled so often that the search engine spiders will find your articles and add them to their indexes.
The KEY however to getting a top listing on the first page of search results in a search engine like Google, is to have your content optimized for a low competition keyword. Content is the first thing that the search engines look for. They take other things into consideration as well.
Some aspects they look at are:
Popularity: how many sites are linking directly to your articles URL, and are those sites popular themselves?
Linked Site Content: the sites linking to your article, are they relevant to your content?
Anti Spam : If your keyword density is too high, the search engines will mark your content as SPAM and you will be left wondering why you didnt ever get any traffic. Density of( 1 2 % )is ideal for the keywords you focused your article on.
Bookmarking your articles on social networks like Digg.com, Stumbleupon.com, or Del.icio.us are ways to create some quick back links and get the spiders to your page faster.
Overall though, getting a listing comes down to your content and how relevant it is.
