Extra, Extra! Submit Your Articles to YourNews

YourNews.com is a local article marketing site. Similar to many local online news websites, except that YourNews.com makes it easy for you to sign up for an account and submit your travel articles based on your zip code, which you enter the first time you land on the site. You can also submit travel articles to be displayed in other zip codes.

What’s cool about this unique local angle is that you can become well known in your own local area for your travel articles reviewing local attractions, resorts, restaurants, and events. Once you become established as an expert travel writer on your local area, you’ll have an easier time getting published in local travel magazines and newspapers, or even national and international travel publications looking to print travel articles on your hometown as a destination. This is one way to help build a destination-specific travel niche [2], regardless of what destination you choose

What we like

What we hate

Signing up is a bit confusing …. to sign up, click on the animated “Submit News” icon in the upper left-hand corner of the page. It kind of blends in with the page so you may miss it. Be sure to also read their Blogger Terms of Service (link is at the bottom of their page) to be sure you comply with their posting guidelines.

YourNews.com is relatively new, but has taken-off in the past few months. Article marketing is a great way to “self-publish” your travel articles. Why wait for a publication like Travel+Leisure to publish your articles? You can easily submit your travel writing article to YourNews.com and make a name for yourself. The best part is that you can submit to multiple markets!
