Somewhere along the line it was drilled into me that article directories will not be pleased if you shoot them 10 articles a day. In fact, they recommend sending no more than 3-5 per week.
Yet, I keep reading posts by Warriors who are producing 8-10 articles a day in their article marketing compaigns, and as many as a few hundred per month.
Which is right?
Can you really send 100-200 articles per month to the directories without encountering problems? It's my understanding that the directories will actually ban you if you bombard them like that.
If it is NOT a good idea to send more than 3-5 articles per week, what do you do with the rest of the articles? You can put them on your blog, Squidoo lens, in autoresponder messages and on your site, but where else can you use them for maximum exposure like you'd get with article directories?
I'd be interested in hearing your opinions because I find this rather confusing.
Ezine Articles recently announced that they will be looking much closer at the articles they receive. The goal is to give more attention to articles that have something original to offer. They are aiming to reject articles that contain the same information that is repeated in other articles on the site.
If this comes to pass, what does that mean for Warriors who use article marketing?
Consider... there is only so much you can say about some topics before it's all been written. Eventually, it's difficult coming up with new angles, new material and new information. At that point, how do you approach your articles?
Case in point.
I've been writing about anxiety to promote anxiety-related products for over 2 years now and to be perfectly honest, I'm all written out (between articles and blog posts). It's almost impossible to find anything more I can add that people probably haven't already seen in other articles. This means I have to find an entirely new way of promoting this particular product.
