Article Writing and Distribution: The 4 Star Method

If there’s one complaint that webmasters have about article writing and distribution, it’s that it takes a long, long time to do it right. Not only do you have to know all of the rules that the biggest, baddest article directory (you know who you are) lays on its writers, but you also have to research and write articles relevant to your business. Then, you have to submit them — and if you don’t syndicate them over at least a dozen directories, you’re losing out on a lot of the potential of those articles. That’s several man-hours just in submissions!

So, how do the experts do it? The answer is “very much the same way that they do Forum posting.” That is to say, they start with a subject, they find a source that says something interesting, they rewrite that interesting thing so that it’s in completely different words, and they post it. Only with article writing and distribution, they add a couple of extra steps. The end result is the four-star method.

Only with article writing and distribution, they add a couple of extra steps. The end result is the four-star method.

  • First, they find a source. Sometimes it’s SGoogle News, sometimes it’s EzineArticles, sometimes it’s a cribd document. The point is that they choose source material that is clean, well-written, and of course relevant.
  • Next, they rewrite the source material — often combining two or more sources — and they work in the keyword according to the rules of basic SEO (and EZA, of course).
  • Then, they submit the article to those directories that manually go over all of their entries, and they wait for those to get approved.
  • Finally, they go autosubmit to hundreds of less discerning directories, often after adding a backlink to a copy of the same article on the more discerning directories.

The end result, assuming the writer has a decent command of the English language and actually understands the topic at hand, is a few articles on a few powerful sites that each have dozens of backlinks to them from other iterations of the same article — making them much stronger to the search engines than if they were simple standalone articles.

  1. i have to summarize a research article but i’m not sure what exactly “methods and measures” mean ? it is a criteria which i must include in my summary..things like hypothesis, variables,results, type of research etc

  2. I had a wedding planner that ruined my wedding. I paid her a lot of money and did half of what she was supposed to do and left before party started. I had to take her to court. I would like to make people aware and alert of her so I would like to make some sort of review or complaint to warn others. I don’t want this to happen to others. I don’t want other brides hard earned money to be spent a thief and lier. So, I want to warn everyone about her name and phone number. She posts in different sites and sometimes even uses different business names. I reported her to BBB but she didn’t even respond to them. And sisn’t show up for court either. Please help.

  3. Do you personally approve of Condom Distribution a Smart Health Policy?
    On March 17, 2009, Pope Benedict stood before a group of reporters and said that condom distribution not only wouldn’t cure the AIDS crisis, it actually makes it worse. These comments reignited a long-simmering debate over the proper place of contraceptives in health and social policy. Does condom distribution actually encourage promiscuity and increase health risks, or is it effective public policy?

    I heard they are now giving little children condoms in schools?

  4. I don’t know which direction to go, what type of points and objectives I could write about…ect.

  5. I’m writing a paper about income distribution. I’m having a very difficult time finding information for possible solutions.
    I have been leaning towards raising tax on the wealth and giving tax breaks for the less fortunate. (and possible re-distribution)
    If you could find articles on these topics it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

  6. Paleontologists from North Carolina State University have found just such a specimen – the fossilized remains of a 60-million-year-old South American giant that lived in what is now Colombia.
    The turtle in question is Carbonemys cofrinii, which means “coal turtle,” and is part of a group of side-necked turtles known as pelomedusoides. The fossil was named Carbonemys because it was discovered in 2005 in a coal mine that was part of northern Colombia’s Cerrejon formation. The specimen’s skull measures 24 centimeters, roughly the size of a regulation NFL football. The shell which was recovered nearby – and is believed to belong to the same species – measures 172 centimeters, or about 5 feet 7 inches, long. That’s the same height as Edwin Cadena, the NC State doctoral student who discovered the fossil.
    “We had recovered smaller turtle specimens from the site. But after spending about four days working on uncovering the shell, I realized that this particular turtle was the biggest anyone had found in this area for this time period – and it gave us the first evidence of giantism in freshwater turtles,” Cadena says.
    Smaller relatives of Carbonemys existed alongside dinosaurs. But the giant version appeared five million years after the dinosaurs vanished, during a period when giant varieties of many different reptiles – including Titanoboa cerrejonensis, the largest snake ever discovered – lived in this part of South America. Researchers believe that a combination of changes in the ecosystem, including fewer predators, a larger habitat area, plentiful food supply and climate changes, worked together to allow these giant species to survive. Carbonemys’ habitat would have resembled a much warmer modern-day Orinoco or Amazon River delta.
    In addition to the turtle’s huge size, the fossil also shows that this particular turtle had massive, powerful jaws that would have enabled the omnivore to eat anything nearby – from mollusks to smaller turtles or even crocodiles.
    Thus far, only one specimen of this size has been recovered. Dr. Dan Ksepka, NC State paleontologist and research associate at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, believes that this is because a turtle of this size would need a large territory in order to obtain enough food to survive. “It’s like having one big snapping turtle living in the middle of a lake,” says Ksepka, co-author of the paper describing the find. “That turtle survives because it has eaten all of the major competitors for resources. We found many bite-marked shells at this site that show crocodilians preyed on side-necked turtles. None would have bothered an adult Carbonemys, though – in fact smaller crocs would have been easy prey for this behemoth.”
    The paleontologists’ findings appear in the Journal of Systematic Palaeontology. Dr. Carlos Jaramillo from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama and Dr. Jonathan Bloch from the Florida Museum of Natural History contributed to the work. The research was funded by grants from the Smithsonian Institute and the National Science Foundation.

    “New pelomedusoid turtles from the late Palaeocene Cerrejon Formation of Colombia and their implications for phylogeny and body size evolution”
    Authors: Edwin Cadena, Dan Ksepka, North Carolina State University; Carlos Jaramillo, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama; Jonathan Bloch, Florida Museum of Natural History
    Published: In the Journal of Systematic Palaeontology
    Abstract:
    Pelomedusoides comprises five moderate-sized extant genera with an entirely southern hemisphere distribution, but the fossil record of these turtles reveals a great diversity of extinct taxa, documents several instances of gigantism, and indicates a complex palaeobiogeographical history for the clade. Here, we report new pelomedusoid turtle fossils from the late Palaeocene Cerrejon Formation of Colombia. The most complete of these is represented by a large skull (condylobasal length ´ = 16 cm) and is described as Carbonemys cofrinii gen. et sp. nov. (Podocnemididae). Carbonemys is incorporated into a parsimony analysis utilizing a modified morphological character matrix designed to test relationships within Panpelomedusoides, with the addition of molecular data from seven genes (12S RNA, cytochrome b, ND4, NT3, R35, RAG-1 and RAG-2) drawn from previous studies of extant Podocnemididae. C. cofrinii is recovered within Podocnemididae in the results of both morphology-only and combined morphological and molecular (total evidence) analyses. However, molecular data strongly impact the inferred relationships of C. cofrinii and several other fossil taxa by altering the relative positions of the extant taxa Peltocephalus and Erymnochelys. This resulted in C. cofrinii being recovered within the crown clade Podocnemididae in the morphology-only analysis, but

  7. ok i have to make a newspaper like it was 1941 and i need help on the article about jewish ghetto ration cards. PLZ HELP!!!! its due tomorrow!

  8. State the distribution (Normal or t) and write your hypotheses. Solve using the specified approach, state your decision, and write a conclusion.

    According to a recently published article, the average age of admission to nursing homes is 83 years. Suppose a random sample of 500 recent admissions to nursing homes yielded a mean age of 83.5 years. The standard deviation of the admission age for all nursing home residents is 3.5 years. Using the critical-value approach, can you conclude that the current mean admissio age to nursing homes is different from 83 years at the 5% significance level?

    10 POINTS BEST ANSWER! THANK YOU!

  9. I have to do a 500 word project for history where we have to write an article on a certain subject in Roman History. I got Real-Estate. What should i write? Your help is much appreciated 🙂

  10. I was just wondering about something. Are research articles “free” things? I mean, if I uploaded a research paper concerning anything in science – from a paper on social psychological literature, to studies about pharmacological substances – is this technically legal? I mean, I can find them all over the internet, anyway, and they’re easily downloadable.

    I guess this sort of has to do with copyright issues? I’m not entirely sure. I mean, can you “own” information? Is a research article private property?

    I mean, forget about whether or not you actually get caught or sued or anything like that. Theoretically, are there limits to how you can use those research papers?

    Could you:

    –> Upload someone else’s work on the internet?
    –> Distribute someone else’s work (eg print copies and hand them out?)
    –> Can you refer to their work, and quote things?
    –> Is it legal to forward people to places to download someone else’s work?

    Say I wanted to do a blog about parenting (I’m not a parent, this is just an example), could I post child development research papers on my blog? Or say I had a video on youtube, could I refer to it then?

    I guess what I’m asking is what the legality of using scientific research articles is.
    LE Gant (cool name)

    That was exactly the answer I was looking for.

    But what should happen, if say, there were 20 authors of a particular paper? Would I have to contact the university that funded the research? Or would I have to contact each individual author?

    Most of the questions were hypothetical to give myself a good understanding of the issue in general. Specifically, this is what I hope to do:

    I find particular articles fascinating, particularly in genetics and drug interactions. What I plan on doing is making a few YouTube videos about articles that I find to be interesting, or maybe sets of articles at a time. I just want to talk about what I find interesting. I don’t expect to get very many people who watch it, so I’m not actually worried about “getting caught” but I still would like to make sure I’m doing everything properly.

    With what I plan to do, explaining the methods and findings is what I will be focusing on. Much of this can be paraphrased,
    Much of this can be paraphrased, but I will quote directly from time to time. Technically speaking, would I be fine to do this if I give due credit to the people who conducted the study?

    Also, would I be able to post a link that would allow people to view the articles? For example, if I referenced this article:

    http://dmd.aspetjournals.org/content/31/7/815.full.pdf+html

    And posted a pre-existing link so that people could view it for free, would that be legal?

    Obviously I didn’t post that myself. If I were to do that, is that okay?

  11. I just bought a plan with Hostgator.com and have found that Backlinks are essentially a must have for any ‘serious’ site. How would I go about obtaining some backlinks? (Such as linkmaster.com, but I don’t want to pay)

  12. I have been using UAW for over a year, and find it really useful. Since I have 3 unique articles written, I was wondering if you know of another service that I can use to double my efforts with the 3 articles I used for UAW. I know there are a lot of article distribution sites but who else uses the 3 Unique Article Submission technology?

  13. im suppose to write an essay about this article but i dont quite understand it. can somebody please summarize or paraphrase this article for me. thank you.
    The process for preparing frozen, par-fried potato strips—distributed to some food outlets for making french fries—can influence the formation of acrylamide in the fries that people eat, a new study has found. Published in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the study identifies potential ways of reducing levels of acrylamide, which the National Toxicology Program and the International Agency for Research on Cancer regard as a “probable human carcinogen.”

    Acrylamide forms naturally during the cooking of many food products. Donald S. Mottram and colleagues explain that while acrylamide formation in fried potato products is inevitable, this research aims to better understand the chemistry involved, and to use computer models to determine how to minimize acrylamide levels in practice. The special feature of this approach is that, for the first time, it has been possible to link changes in natural potato components (glucose, fructose, amino acids, moisture) occurring during preparation and cooking with the extent of acrylamide formation. Such a rigorous approach has only been possible through collaboration between the food industry and food chemists from different disciplines.

    The commercial process (which includes potato selection and sorting, cutting, blanching, sugar augmentation, drying, frying and freezing), in combination with final cooking, generates the color, texture and flavor that consumers expect in french fries. This model facilitates evaluation of various processing and final cooking parameters to develop products with lower acrylamide. Additionally, the authors confirm previous reports, which found that minimizing the ratio of fructose to glucose in cut potato strips can reduce the amount of acrylamide that ends up in the french fries.

    More information: “Kinetic Model for the Formation of Acrylamide during the Finish-Frying of Commercial French Fries” J. Agric. Food Chem., 2012, 60 (36), pp 9321–9331. DOI: 10.1021/jf302415n

    Abstract
    Acrylamide is formed from reducing sugars and asparagine during the preparation of French fries. The commercial preparation of French fries is a multistage process involving the preparation of frozen, par-fried potato strips for distribution to catering outlets, where they are finish-fried. The initial blanching, treatment in glucose solution, and par-frying steps are crucial because they determine the levels of precursors present at the beginning of the finish-frying process. To minimize the quantities of acrylamide in cooked fries, it is important to understand the impact of each stage on the formation of acrylamide. Acrylamide, amino acids, sugars, moisture, fat, and color were monitored at time intervals during the frying of potato strips that had been dipped in various concentrations of glucose and fructose during a typical pretreatment. A mathematical model based on the fundamental chemical reaction pathways of the finish-frying was developed, incorporating moisture and temperature gradients in the fries. This showed the contribution of both glucose and fructose to the generation of acrylamide and accurately predicted the acrylamide content of the final fries.

  14. OK there are FACTS on this. DATA. And it COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY REFUTES the class warfare argument.

    There are NOT facts that support it – the Libs take data that shows that while entry-level workers make only 5-10% more in real income than was the case a generation ago, people at the height of their careers make a lot more, and they misrepresent this as a difference between two permanent groups. It’s been the same MO since the 1980s and it’s just as misleading now as it was then.
