Why does bum marketing work?

The idea is other webmasters come to the article submission sites, see your well written, search engine optimized article, copy it in it's entirety and paste it on their own websites. This is a good thing. Good because the major article submission sites insist that articles used from them are reproduced in their entirety. Bio or resource box included.

If your article is really useful, it could get picked up by a ton of websites.

The advantage of this?

Back links to your website or affiliate link. More traffic, more sales!!!
