Making A Good Article Directory Submission Bio

Article submissions to free article directories as most know is a great source of backlinks for your Build A Niche Stores. I see many submissions though that do not take full advantage of the links available in the bio section footer. First and foremost, make sure to read the submission rules of each and every article directory and make sure you know what type of links are allowed and how many you can have. These rules differ from directory to directory. Some will not allow html links at all so in that case make sure you use the proper format. For directories that do not allow html make sure to use the full domain including the hypertext transfer protocol or the http. So that would look like this:

Other directories that do allow html in the bio footer often limit you to a max of three links. Make sure to utilize as many as allowed and deep link to pages in your store with the target keyword phrase in the anchor text for each link. If I were writing a bio for this blog and were allowed 3 links it would look something like this:

Soggy owns and operates a Build A Niche Store blog, where he offers Wordpress Build A Niche Store templates and standard BANS templates for sale.

Simply html code to make a link is below:

<a href="">Google</a>

Of course there are word number limits in the bio section as well, so make sure to stay within the rules.

Every time I've put articles on these websites people copy and paste the text to get it on their blogs instead of downloading it in the proper way. More often than not the bio which had the links back to me was not included in the copy/paste. The article then shows authorship as being "admin" or whatever name they are posting under on their blogs. I once contacted ezine articles about this misuse of content and learned had no interest in being the police. How do you keep your content from being used without proper credit if you can't put links in the main body of the articles?
