Get More Traffic Write for Links

Writing articles in your area of expertise can help bring queries to your door for writing assignments. Many websites look for content and are more than willing to give you the ability to link to your LinkedIn profile, blog, or other appropriate site.

When choosing to submit your article to a site, bear in mind the audience, and be sure to check the writers’ guidelines for any clauses regarding ownership of your work. If you have a question, be sure to get the answer in writing, as well. I asked Family matters on Twitter,if they offered back links to authors and they do. However, you will want to be get confirmation of this yourself. Here are the writer’s guidelines from Family Matters:
