Contributed Articles

These are do-it-yourself how-to articles written by you that contain links back to your site. They are not “ads”, but are actual helpful articles that explain how to do something.

Your article will be listed on our Main page and will be mentioned in the first Newsletter after it is added to our site (which will have better drawing power than a Newsletter Banner advertisement). There will be at least one other link on our site pointing to your article. You may embed as many links back to your site as are reasonable (say one link per major paragraph). You will be given a byline (signature) if you like, that links to your own personal page.

Articles should be written for the do-it-yourselfer as a helpful guide in keeping with the articles written by Dave. They should contain photos or diagrams that help explain the content to non-professionals. Any unfamiliar words need to be defined in the article or you can suggest they be added to Dave’s Construction Dictionary. Be prepared to have the article edited and to have links to Dave’s Construction Dictionary added. Any keywords you employ in the article or links back to your site will not be modified by our editor except with your consent.

Article: (350 words minimum) $200 a month, $2,000 a year. This is an extremely effective method of getting pre-qualified traffic to your site. It is also a help to us somewhat, which is why we are keeping the price on this low.
