I'm Selling Out...Give Me A GOOD Article Submission Service

by Steven Wagenheim 37 replies
Okay, I'm finally giving in. It's been 2 years since I last tried mass submission
of my articles and it didn't bring me any significant amount of extra traffic
so I just stuck with EZA.

But I'm ready to try it again ONE LAST TIME.

So what's the best way to do this? If it's a service and I have to pay, fine.

But I want the most bang for my buck and something that's REALLY going
to make a difference.

If you have something with PROVEN results, I'll listen.

Let the games begin.

    Hire a virtual assistant to do it manually. That way you can have them track which directories get you the best results. And you can have them do other administrative tasks when they're not submitting articles if you want.

    Steven,

    My best experience was with Uniquearticlewizard.com

    I've tried a couple since then and they just have not worked as well for me.

      Jeremy, you use the word was. Does that mean you don't use them
      anymore? And if so, why not? Did they stop performing well? Was it not
      worth the time or money? That's what I'm trying to get at it. I don't want
      to do something if it's just going to be throwing money out the window.
      My first experience with this stuff was a disaster and I don't want to go
      down that road again.

        My membership ran out and I decided to give another service a shot. So, I signed up with articlemarketer and have regretted it almost since the change over. I will be going back to UAW this week as soon as I get the rest of my articles cleared from articlemarketer.

        UAW is kind of pricey, I think it is like $67 a month, but just the ease of use is worth that, not to mention the fact that they populate peoples blogs and such with your articles and not just directories. You should give their sales page a read.

    Steven,

    I've been experimenting with all the other article sites besides EZA and although I may be getting links which are of course important, I'm not getting any views.

    I used the same article that had got me hundreds of hits at EZA, and Nada.

    I'm about to decide that mass submissions to the other directories is the way to go, because the only benefit is the links.

      I actually have many Squidoo lebses in a non IM niche. Doesn't really do
      much for me so I'm hesitant to put the work in for a niche that is so
      competitive as it is.

    I use Article Post Robot. I do not have a link to the site anymore but I have found that the backlinks are a lot more useful for better organic listings that the traffic that they bring is.

    The downside is the hour or two that it takes to setup the accounts through the program for all of the articles submission sites. I guess as other posters have pointed out that you could outsource that work though

      That's because you did not use the proper tools and/or service... Do not give up on something just because there was one or 2 bad apples in the bunch..

    You are going to be disappointed with the raw traffic numbers. That's just the way it's going to be. However the extra articles blasted are good for SOME traffic, not a lot, and there is POTENTIAL for one of them to send a bunch of traffic. Honestly I think article distribution is better for SEO than for traffic.

    I send a unique article to EZA and then blast a different one out with isnare, whose rates are very reasonable. I also take the blast version and throw it on Go Articles, Article City, and Searchwarp (quick submissions and GA + SW go live instantly).

    Because you operate in the IM niche you should also send a unique article to marketingtrendz.com once in a while as well, a pure traffic-generating service (ezine publication).

    Steven,

    I used to use Isnare, but I didn't use them for a while. My submission to EA alone outperform everything I've done before as well.

    If I find a proven article submission site (with actual results), I'll give it a try too.

    For those who said uniquearticlewizard.com, are you tracking this?

    Article Post Robot - It also has a spinner built-in BUT it can be slow, esp if you manually click "add" like I did the first time. Wanted to make sure it worked. it also doesn't have a resume feature.

    The other drawback, you have to join 400+ sites - manually. I did pay someone $8/hour to do it. Took them under 4 hours as they copy and pasted all the details. Of course a new version was just released so I have to find someone to do it all again.

      If you are doing it for traffic then you most likely will be disappointed. If you are doing it for backlinks to have some of your sites, blogs or other articles rank higher in the SE's then it is worth it.

      Chris, based on some of the responses I got in this thread, my professional
      opinion was that it wouldn't be worth my time or money to either do this
      or pay somebody to do it as I believe the benefits just aren't all that stellar.

      James, let me be totally honest and up front with you.

      You probably already know how many articles I have out on the net already.
      Just what I have brings me a daily stream of traffic that amounts to between
      15 and 30 new subscribers a day.

      By just writing one or two articles daily and submitting them to EZA, I'm
      doing more than well enough for my purposes.

      I've reached the point where I'm satisfied with my business as it is (I'm
      actually semi retired now) and am actually looking to do less work, not
      more of it.

      It took me a long time to get to this point (over 6 years). Some say way
      too long (and I agree), but now that I'm here, I'm just content with the
      way things are.

      These days I spend my time mostly writing songs, playing video games
      and taking my daughter out (tonight we saw Taken with Liam Neeson)

      Today I was able to help out a fellow warrior without even having to
      blink about the monetary amount.

      In other words, I'm finally at peace with my life and the way things are
      going (which is part of the reason I'm not here as much)

      Anyway, hope this kind of gives you an idea of where my head is now.

        UAW is good, but not for driving traffic. It is a good service for getting loads of backlinks. If you are article marketing for backlinks and the organic SEO benefits it will give you in the SERPs, then by all means go with UAW, you can feel free to PM me and I'll share a few pretty cool advanced techniques to use with Unique Article Wizard I use.

        But if all you are looking for is raw traffic driving power, you've got your best bases covered already. An article submission service isn't what you need for what you want. G doesn't trust many article websites, and for good reason. So their links are low quality. That's why EZA is so awesome for driving traffic and ranking in the SERPS since they are so strict with who they allow in.

          I'm with you on that, you right. UAW is very good for backlinks, I've been using them ever since 2007 when they started off.

          It does wonders for long tail keywords, makes it very easy for you to get high rankings. But as for traffic NADA.

          All the best.

        Yeah Steven you are exactly in the place that everyone else wants to be ..lol

        I have been debt free for some time now, I am not rich or anything but I have also learned recently that being debt free does not mean you will stay debt free.. My wife spent 4 days in the hospital just recently which created a $20,000 bill, not to mention the weekly doctor visits now..

        I think it is wonderful that you can spend the time away and spend time with family (which is what matters most). I also think it is great that you have found peace and you are at that point where you are satisfied, this is truly a wonderful place to be in...

        For some reason though Steven, I can not picture you playing video games...lol

      I tried UAW about a year ago and I'm thinking of trying it again. At the time I found it got alot of my sites to page 1 of Google for different keywords, and I got about 50-70 extra backlinks per submission. Can't remember why I unsubscribed actually - think it was because there was too much work involved in creating the article in the first place. I'd outsource it this time round though. Not all the backlinks were the best quality but they seemed to do the job.

    Spin2Submit.co.za is the best of them all. And when I say that, I don't say it lightly because I have used the so-called "best" out there. I have used Jetsubmitter, ArticlePostRobot, UniqueArticleWizard, to mention a few, and none has the POWER that Spin2Submit has. Heck, none even comes 1,000 miles close. I mean that.

    Apart from the awesome working nature of Spin2Submit, it's very empowering to know that support is just an email away - or just a forum post away. Despite how clumpsy the other article submitters are, the owners don't care about answering support emails, but not so with Spin2Submit. With Spin2Submit, the owner (our almighty Genie) is always just an email or forum post/pm away. I still marvel at how he continues to help us every minute in the forum and how he implements more features that we request, with lightening speed. Awesome, I tell you!

    One of the other things I like best about Spin2Submit, apart from the fact that it submits spun and unique versions of articles, each to a different article directory and each to the RIGHT category or related category, is the fact that I can decide to schedule my submission (and get emailed an exact analysis of what was submitted, to exactly which article directories and which categories the articles where submitted to) or decide to submit my articles in realtime and watch the submission taking place right before my eyes.

    Most importantly, after submitting any article I start seeing results of my submissions within minutes - the articles get submitted and MOST of them get approved because they were not only unique but submitted to the right categories! Since I started using Spin2Submit, I am now able to DOMINATE almost any keyword and maintain the first 10 spots in google without using ANY OTHER linking system! And yes - my banker is loving me the more everyday, Thank you, Spin2Submit!

          If you read the first post in March, it appears somebody wanted an update
          on what I had decided.

          Certainly that's a legit reason for making a post to an older thread.

          I then gave them the update on the situation.
