Many people on this blog have suggested many ways to organically drive traffic to the website or blog of your choice. As a former journalist (when print was not dead but on life support), I was contemplating the ability for writing articles for online media and using them as a way to drive traffic to the website or blog of your choice.
This is not blogging but submitting an article through the editorial process. I know that for the consulting business I am trying to establish I am using my old columns as content on my website because the magazine I worked for won't let me re-edit by byline. I am curious to know if anyone else has written for any of the online media, or had someone in their organization do so and then use the links from the column to the website to build up site traffic?
