One of the misconceptions about bum marketing is that you need to take posts from your blog and just paste them into as many free article sites as possible. This couldn't be further from the truth! What you need to do is write an article on your blog and then write ABOUT that article with unique articles then placed on the free article site. It is far better to write new, uncopied information on each free article site than to just copy and paste. Google is pretty smart and it will pick up what you're doing thus hurting your search results in the long run.
Think of it as an excercise in your writing prowress. Can you write about something till there's nothing left to be said? Then you can probably compose articles about a subject for your blog or website and then write more on articles, perhaps with catch phrases at the end like: "Learn more at my blog with this post" or "There's much more information pertaining to this article here."
So next time you read an article or blogpost telling you to just copy and paste information onto free article sites... order them to come here and read this post!
