    You're right it makes perfect sense. Thank you for pointing this out. I'm going to do it on my next article and blog post.

    The introduction has to be a big boom. It has to give description and overview of the topic in very few and descriptive words, keeping inn mind that the words are not too much ambiguous, and it also be easy to understand for the commoners. A good introduction gives a good start to the article.

    You're right it has to capture the readers attention in order to keep them wanting to read even the next paragraph let alone the rest of the article. I always think it must be provocative in that respect to arouse interest.

    Simply, a quality article must have a "Quality" i.e. it should provide something new, something different information to its readers and create interest to read more and more.

    In my opinion, aside from many factors of a quality article, one of the most important thing as to readers are concern is get them informed of something new which is somehow worth knowing.

    I would only add keep it short and sweet, under 1000 characters. Regards, Lenore, goodnreadytogo

    If the objective is sales, the quality article moves the sales process. And you should be able to test the contribution to sales.
    Please explain how you measure the contribution of the article to the sales process. Thanks, Lenore, goodnreadytogo --{---@

    The only criteria for a high quality article is the fact that the reader takes action. Whether it`s clicking a link, or downloading an ebook, or purchasing something.

    Sales page is the best example - the only action that measures the quality and the effectiveness of the sales page, is whether the reader buys or not.

    So article is just a shorter and simplified form of a sales page. The goal of which is to make the reader take action.

    I consider a good article which has a catchy headline intriguing readers to read the entire post supported with unique content with appropriate keyword stuffing. Such articles has low bounce rate and fetches good web traffic to your website.

    My question is how do do you measure how many sales are actually generated by your article. You could include a sale coupon code specific for the article but perhaps this would seem too tacky and sales oriented. If you do not use the specific coupon code, how else can you accurately measure the number of sales generated by your article?

    There are somany popular article directories like Ezine, do not approved advertising articles or sales articles.
    They only approved unique and informative articles.

    Do you post your articles to each directory or do you use a submitting software or service?

    I have also used Associated Content http://www.associatedcontent.com but I do not like the restrictions for non-Americans. The beauty with them is that you can earn money from your articles based on how many page views you get. If you are an American, they will pay you outright for some of your content.

    If you have other questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

    personally I dont think that only the introduction being engrossing help it all.the entire article must be factual or as it requires to be captivating to attract people.
