Article directories to use

19 replies
Hi all,

I'm looking to start posting some article in directories. Nothing too fancy or automated, just Sean's "Link magnet" strategy. My question is which article directories should I use? I only know of ezinearticles and hubpages.

My articles are good and manually written but not super-magazine quality, so I need directories that are accommodating of that and still fairly high value.

Thanks

    Thanks. There is another thing I forgot to ask. How important is the PR of those sites for my own articles (in google's eyes)?

      Not at all.

      Your article will be placed on a new page within the website, and all new pages begin life with a PR0. Your article page will have to earn its own link popularity in order to have link popularity to share with your site.

    Ok then. How about the long term - Does a PR6 article site provide any advantage over a PR4 site for advancing the PR of the article page?

      They don't even get PR0. They are all 'unranked' means you will notice 'No PageRank Information' to the new pages.

      There won't be any increase of PR to your new article either you publish on PR6/PR4 article directory. As said by 'tpw', you will need to work out on the popularity of your article that is published in the article directory to increase PR.

        Here's a post from
        http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post2611920


        5. Random question about article resubmitting
        Though it doesn't matter, I always post the article on my website first. Then, I resubmit manually to EZA, Goarticle, Articles Dashboard, and iSnare. Lastly, a friendly blast from articlebot ($25, not affiliated). Those are the only 4 that I feel are worth manually submitting to.

        Hope that helps,

    I think you misunderstood. I was asking if the site PR gives an extra boost to the article page after I work on developing the article pages (building links, increasing traffic, etc)

    Ie
    Article on PR6 site
    Article on PR4 site

    equal SEO attention to each

    Does the PR6 article get any benefits from the site PR?

      Oh sorry ^^,
      I was just adding some points on the main Question. " Article directories to use"

      With the last question of yours I think tpw answer is great. There's no correlation to submitting to PR 2 or PR9 article directories simply because your Article will become PR0 and the main site will not have any effect on the article submitted.

      just to add
      don't overthink on the backlinking process of article marketing. Just get a list that has an average PR of 2-8 (Im scared of PR0 and PR1 article sites) Then post it there.



      Also don't give backlink's to the articles submitted. You will be spending time and energy to give ARTICLE directories backlinks. For what purpose?
      • to give SE traffic to the articles on article directories that has your resource box/sig?
      • For your article to top notch a single keyword?
      You'll be giving free targeted potential customers to article sites that's Full of adsense. Only 30% of these targeted customer will reach your sites instead of 100% cause of the adsense barage. Sometimes even lower. So instead of giving them backlinks why not increase the backlinks of your OWN sites and get the Search Engine Traffic yourself?.

      Remember this, backlinks to the articles doesn't determine who stays or get's de-indexed by google after 6 months it only boosts the rankings on Search Engines. So as an example an article that has 5 backlinks vs an article that has 0 backlinks. Sometimes 0backlink articles stays in google and 5backlinked articles will disappear. So the backlinks on article doesn't determine who gets to stay or who gets kicked out.

      p,s put your article first in your Blog.yoursite.com or anywhere you like in your site before posting them in the article directories.

      So in short. PR of the article Directories is not a factor in determining the juice or rank of your article and Backlinking the articles from other article directories is a waste of time, effort and potential targeted customers from SE.

      Hope this helps,

        Have you read Sean Donahue's "Link Magnet" WSO? He says linking to a "main" article page is much safer than linking all the articles directly back to your websites. PR juice flows through the main article and back to your site (eventually).

          Hi there,

          Nope I haven't read it. Can you explain this a little bit further?

          But 1 thing I've learned here in warrior forums. People have certain views of everything. So It's up to you whether you'll listen or not. That's what I did, I listen to lots and lots of article marketers. You know what? both sides think they are right. So it's up to you what you want to try or get. There is no point in arguing in this topic casue if you search in threads you'll see 10 if not 20 pages of article marketers fighting over this one.

          So my suggestion is try both worlds and see who really makes it. Then you decide for yourself.

          Thanks,
          Rayson

    Can someone help me out, I think I have been misunderstanding something.

    It it is only the PR of the actual page you are on, why is there so much activity about trying to get onto particular types of site.

    The main focus seems to be getting onto .edu sites, so a .edu site is not sufficient in itself I guess, am I right? Have I been missing something for a long time? How is valu dervied from a .edu link location

      Here's my understanding.

      PR is only applicable to the page you are on and not the site itself.

      However there are two things to think of.

      Firstly sites with a high PR are generally indicative of authority and with this there is generally (though not always) the opportunity for more traffic. So the likelihood is that you will have more potential to gain views from a site with a high PR than one with 0. And of course the higher the PR the more likelihood that Google will check back regularly and index the pages (ie. your article).

      Secondly there is the vague chance that some of the PR from a high value PR site will filter down to some of its other pages. I think this is the general notion with websites. However article directories have so many articles and pages the likelihood of any benefit from this would be minimal.

      I have had much more success with some article directories with a lower PR in terms of traffic across some of my sites than those with higher.

      Remember traffic is sanity and PR is vanity. I can think of half a dozen sites off the top of my head with a PR of 3-4 that get less than 10 hits per day.

      Try a couple of article directories and see what works for you. I find some niches and categories work better with certain directories than others.

    You are right. Most (Maybe all) articles which are submitted to article directories are in pages with PR0 and in this case theres not any difference between article directories. But some people say getting internal backlinks from high pagerank website is better getting it from low pagerank websites. Its the reason.

    A forum post typically has 20 comments per page on average with some forums having as much as 40 comments. Where some forums force limitation on signature links by permitting only 2 links or so, others don’t impose any such restriction on signature links meaning you can have as many links as you desire on your signature
