Article Submission Tips

by 14 comments
Hey Gang,

Here are two "less obvious" quick tips to help avoid getting the dreaded you've been 'banned' email from Ezinearticles. These tips assume you submit to more than one article directory. If you only submit to Ezinearticles this post may not be useful to you.

1. Always submit your articles to Ezinearticles FIRST. Since they are the "Google" of the article directories, its very important to submit to them first.

Heres why....lets say for example you submit your articles to Buzzle, Article Dashboard,SearchWarp,Ideamarketers etc...before you submit to Ezinearticles.

What happens is when your articles go into 'pending review' at Ezinearticles they'll run a check to basically make sure that you've submitted original content.

The problem arises when they come across a duplicate copy of the same article at one or more of the other directories. If that happens, in most cases you'll get an email from them
banning you from further submissions.

Now, this can actually be remedied if you can send them proof that the articles are in fact original content authored by you. A good idea would be to do a screen capture of the articles showing your name. But to avoid the hassle altogether submit to Ezinearticles first.


Isnare tip >>>

Okay, i'm a big fan of ISnare so this is a tip that will prove useful to you if you use or decide to use them for article syndication.

Just like Ezinearticles when you submit articles to ISnare they will also go into pending review status. They'll run a check to make sure the content submitted is original.

BUT, when they come back with duplicates of the same articles (remember Ezinearticles) they'll send you an email notifying you that your articles were not distributed. Which is really a drag especially considering that they take at least four days on average before they even start syndicating your content.

So heres how you avoid that potential problem.....simply type in ALL CAPS at the bottom of EACH article "THIS ARTICLE HAS ALSO BEEN POSTED AT _______,_______&_______.The blanks represent each article directory & the url where the article resides.

When they review the articles they'll see this at the bottom of each article and distribute it, assuming theres nothing else wrong with the submission.

And don't worry they'll remove the note before distributing.

BONUS: Submit to American Chronicle

Now before some know it all responds with "this is why you should never submit the same articles to multiple directories" let me add that i've been submitting the same articles to multiple directories for years with no problems.

Hope this helps someone.

I'm out.

    i submitted an article all over recently as an experiment.

    got 7 clicks from EZA

    got 51 more from the rest.

    and your footer note makes sense.

      Cool tips man, thanks!

      I prefer submitting to Ezine Articles only though. I just don't like mass submission (or even submitting to 2 or more directories, for that matter)...

    Ezinearticles is the google of article directory you are right but most of the people feel difficulty in submiting to it, because it has too much objections for the newbie.

    Great post, many thanks and some good tips.

    Myself, I used to always submit just to EZA, but recently I've been looking at other quality places to submit (after EZA) and the notes about ISnare are invaluable.

      FYI: Here are some things I learned from trying to submit to other article directories. uses nofollow links, you get no backlink value your articles must be 500 words or more in their guildelines it says no advertising. The articles are supposed to be for pure information, not trying to sell any products. must apply as author first and send writing sample. Took me about 4 days to get approved. They will check for duplicate articles. They want articles to be at least 600 words but I'm not sure what their exact minimum is.

    I usually just submit my articles to ezinearticles along with the rest of the directories i use. Maybe I'm just lucky but Ive never gotten an email from them and they take the longest to accept the articles.:rolleyes:

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.
