EZA, waiting for approval is like watching paint dry!

by yube 11 replies
I'm on Tiffany Dow's 30 day challenge, I have 5 articles submitted from 9/24/08.
They are all on the first red bar right now.
Am I doing something wrong, or are they just slow with approvals?

    They are just slow, when you reach the threash hold
    it becomes a lot faster. Mine get approved within 24 hours now.

    Keep writing while you wait.

    It's not you. Everyone is having this problem these days.

    They basically are trying to steer everyone to their premium membership service which costs $97 a month, but you get your articles approved very quickly as long as they meet the Ezinearticles terms of service. (As in, just because you have a premium membership wouldn't mean that you could link to an affiliate site or violate any of their other rules).

    I know it sounds really expensive but I get much more traffic from them than from any other article directory. I think it's worth it.

      Keep moving forward and put the wait out of your mind. The more often you check, the more time you waste that could have been spent doing something productive.

        Glad somebody said it...

        there's FAR more you could be doing to promote your business while waiting for your articles to be approved. Write more articles, ready to submit and have a constant stream of them.

        p.s @OP - Writing articles ain't the only traffic generation method either... find other things to do...

        I agree with others here: just keep submitting, that way you will have something getting approved regularly

        The same approach counts for a distribution service like isnare - you wait a loooong time, but it helps to just continue submitting every day or so...

          I have submitted few articles since 12/09/08 and got first approved on 23/08/09 after that every two days I am getting my articles approved.

          So keep submitting and you will soon started getting approval regularly

            I have 5 articles submitted from 9/24/08.
            That's three days today. The site tells you it may take 7 days to get articles approved. Stop watching the paint dry and write some more articles.

    Hey, did anyone mention that you should stop watching and write some more? Oh, yeah, looks like everybody gave that advice. LOL 'Tis true.

    I don't know if this will help motivate you or not, but it's what I do. I tend toward a bit of OCD and sometimes it manifests itself in compulsively checking EZA for approvals. So I set a hard-and-fast rule for myself. Every time I check and something new hasn't been approved, I am forced to eat some chocolate. Wait, that's not right.... Oh yeah, I force myself to write another article. Even if I'm in the middle of something else important, the rule is the rule. I must stop immediately and write an article. No exceptions. Try it.

      I think it's comical, not only are you creating content for EZA that they are using to build their site and business... they have started charging people to create content for them.

      Laughable. Ridiculous. And regardless of the benefits of article submission to EZA, I'd rather burn $100 a month than give it to them.

      Build your own sites guys.
