How Many Articles Per Day to Submit

90 replies
How many articles per day should you submit without it looking like you are spamming? With article demon I was thinking about setting up the scheduler to submit 150 - 250 per day by dripping around 50 every 6 hours or 25 ever 3 - 4 hours.

What I have notice with the scheduler is a lot of articles do not get posted even though an account was created successfully. I see a lot of failures and the scheduler seems to add the submission to another date if the article is not successfully submitted until it tries 3 times.

    When you speak of 100-150 a day are you speaking about 1 article spun 100 times? OR 100 completly diffrent articles on different subjects?

      Hi Cyber:

      How is Article Demon working for you? Is it a new program and did it cost alot? I haven't heard of it before and would appreciate your feedback.

      Thanks so much!

      It is one article spun 100 times. And testing it the spun articles are 60% - 80% unique. I had a article written around 1000 words and spun with the best spinner and each spin the article ranges from 400 - 800 words so they are not close to being duplicated.

    Why can't people just submit 1 or 2 high quality articles instead of hundreds of spammy ones? There's enough garbage in the internet as it is...

      Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the point of submitting articles to get links back to your site? Which in turns helps your site rank higher in the SERP. And if you are posting good articles which make sense and your site is offering a good service or product instead of just spamming what is wrong with it?

        Call me naive and inexperienced, but I'm only a full-time article marketer making a very good living from article marketing and my answer to this question's an unambivalent "no": that isn't the main point for me, at all, since you ask. :p

        Do you really think the backlink you're getting is worth any more, or helps your site any more, because the article to which it's attached has been spun? Or might it actually be the identical backlink in the identical places, whether the article's spun or not? :rolleyes:

        I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it at all, for you: in fact I'm really happy for as many of my competitors as possible to use up the maximum possible amount of time, energy, resources, skills and attention on it.

      • PreReq1: Extensive Research = Industry and micro niche research, including relevant experiences and test results of experts in the industry and micro niche.
        PreReq2: Professional Writing Skills = Written content effectively communicates info and advice relevant to the needs and problems of target readers and efficiently carries out the author's purposes.
        PreReq3: Very Well Human Spun Content = Using spinner software that does not automatically replace words & phrases with synonyms from thesaurus databases of human spun content but rather selects word/phrase/sentence/paragraph version combinations of human spun content then compares each version against each other to get the most unique and most readable ones using built-in uniqueness and readability checking applets.

        Point 1: If a "high quality" article has been professionally written after extensive research then very well humanly spun and posted to different online places, particularly in this case article directories, each under a different author name, so the author won't sound like he's repeating himself over and over again with just different wordings which will happen if he uses an account with the same author name across the different article directories, then would that not be a sceneraio where the author is scattering "high quality" content written in different tones and styles for different people frequenting different places of their preference on the Internet? Would that not provide value to the Internet user population? I define "high quality" articles as write-ups which satisfy the needs of its target readers and the purposes of the author.
        Point 2: If the requirements I mentioned in point 1 about extensively researched, professionally written and very well humanly spun content, it would be better to scatter these "high quality" articles offering useful info and advice relevant to the needs of your target audience, in different tones and styles to accommodate more reading preferences, across more online places, to accommodate more online reading resource preferences, for both Internet readers and authors. Why? The "high quality" content gets read by more people interested in such topics and info/advice which can help them improve their lives or solve their problems or provide them with some utility of sorts, and the author establishes himself as a friendly expert source of useful and updated info/advice relevant to his target topics/keywords/audience all while building a lot of high quality backlinks from different high domain authority sites, in this case article directories.
        Point 3: If all reqs mentioned above for freshly written then human spun content, then it would be good for the author to submit one version across different places using an author account with the same author name, then for each version to be submitted to those different places using an author account with the same author name (no 1 version will be submitted to 2 or more online places using 2 or more author accounts with different author names, and no 2 or more versions will be submitted to 1 or more online places using 1 author account with the same author name), also called content syndication, a perfectly legal and ethical thing to do. This will allow more readers with varying writing tone and style preferences as well as reading place preferences to read high quality content published in their preferred online places and written in their preferred writing tone/style. Something included in supplementary results most likely means the online places where it is published and the written content itself do not rank higher than other exact same ones published in other online places for particular keyword searches, though it will most likely rank higher for other particular keyword searches which are relevant matches of the keywords that the online places where it is published ranks higher for, while others that were not previously included in the supplementary results may or may not be included in the list this time around but just rank lower than previous ones included in the supplementary results, for these particular keyword searches. The author in turn builds more backlinks with this process and exposes his business and brand as well as establishes himself as a friendly expert source of useful and updated info/advice relevant to the needs of his target audience frequenting different online places of their choice and in ways matching the differing writing tone/style preferences of his collective target audience.

        These are all based on results of my relevant tests and inferences gained from studying such results among other external facts.

        No, because that IS spamming.

        The purpose of posting an article should be for a human being to find that article and read it, then CLICK the link back to your site, where you can then promote an offer to them.

        Because how highly you rank in the SERPs will not make you any money.

        what you should do is create 1-3 good articles and include your keywords in your article. You will get way more hits that way than spinning 100 articles and not receiving any feedback. You want to find ways to save time but also get good conversions. Writing a good thought out article will save you time

        Plus when you submit them people published them to their own website and you have a chance of getting more links. Instead of using articles just for creating backlinks, You could really leverage and get sales from them too

      you my friend hit the nail on the head there.

      The difference between having a good article....and a bad one is oh..... no sales, and lots of sales.

      Trust my it is that cut throat in article marketing these days.

      You have to be the cream of the crop to get people clicking those damn links...so make sure it is good, and no spammy as above!!!

      Hey guys, you really dont need those expensive article submission programs. Joshua is right.

      If you submit 1 or 2 high quality articles, that a lot better than automatically sending 50 or so articles with little or no quality at all.

      Think about it. What do you want your viewers to see? Junk? or professional work?

        so true, quality over quantity anyday. I make my articles now longer and better content, say 800 - 1000 words, sometimes more and outsource this to really good writers.

        a crappy article, might get you a few views, where as a very good article, will get you lots of views and might even go viral. :-)

      Nicely said, Joshua.

      Enough garbage as it is.

      To the original poster, I don't think your submitting 100 articles a day is going to help you in anything.

      Have you heard about the little Google updates by the way?

      Have you heard about the term 'viral marketing'?

      Have you heard how article directory marketing is essentially dead?

      (Even guest blogging is also on its way down.)

      Still, I would say that you go ahead and create a bunch of really QUALITY content on your site and reach to your audiences across the web, in all forms, shape and sizes.

      You will benefit from that.

    Spinners almost never crank out a perfectly readable article. They way they re-order the words leads to some sentences not making any sense at all. It's easy to spot a spun article over one written from scratch by a human.

    I'd say write between 2 and 5 unique articles a day and submit those. The search engines will never nail you for that, thus you'll get steady traffic for years to come. While those spun to death articles will likely never see much traffic. If you can write and submit 5 articles a day 5 days a week that's 25 articles a week. It'll go crazy from there. And they'll actually get read, boosting your credibility.

    I submit between 25 and 30 a day but I do not always point them to my site. Often times, I submit articles to other articles I have out there to increase the link juice power.

    Typically, I'll write a few articles and use TBS to spin them before submitting.

    I was thinking about responding to this earlier, but "meh".

    If you're really insistent about writing crappy articles and mass-submitting them for backlinks (perhaps after spinning them and making them even worse), why would your daily submittal total matter? They wouldn't all get indexed / picked up by the search-engines instantaneously, at the same time, anyway - and most probably never will, even if they're successfully submitted and approved, and the "directories"/sites exist longer than a few days/weeks/months.

    My answer to how many you should submit (through your software) would be "zero" - even when looking at it purely from an SEO/backlinks perspective.

    What I'm really saying is "good luck" with what is essentially - in my opinion, and for the most part - time well-wasted.

    G'night.

      Wow what a hornets nest this has become. Where did you get the idea of crappy articles? I can see your point that some people will do that and spam like crazy to see what will stick. That is not me and whatever gave you that thought? Using software to make your life better is a great thing. The articles have good value and are written well. If you do more in your spinning than just spinning at word level such as sentence and paragraph level you can have an article which reads well and has value.

      So with said it is okay for me to have 20 plus articles written manually on a topic and each one reads different and submit each one to a different article directory. But it is not okay to create one article, spin it well with at least 60% - 80% uniqueness, produce 20 plus spun articles and submit each one to a different directory. I do not see what is wrong with the 2nd option.

      I'm not talking about submitting the same article to 1000's of websites but to 50 - 100 of them. I mentioned 150 - 250 per day because that is the total with all my article on different topics and different sites. So I may have 5 -10 different article topics going to different websites.

        Alright, well, if you're really doing high-quality articles (and "high-quality spinning"), then props to ya.

        That doesn't in any way negate the fact that mass submitting any articles to sites/directories seldom results in anything more than miniscule returns, for the reason I already mentioned in my previous post: most will never get indexed.

        Any "directory" which accepts anything with a whiff of being "spun content", for one thing, is likely to have pretty low quality standards. When you consider the volume and frequency of people who do submit crappy quality, spun tripe to them, it's not hard to see why you could have problems getting indexed, and therefore struggle to benefit even from a backlinking perspective.

        The level/depth/degree to which Google's spiders/bots crawl and index the pages of a website depends to an extent on the amount of authority and PR-flow (and therefore backlinks) the site has.

        I know this from first-hand experience, too (). You can build a site to the tune of 50,000 pages, but if you haven't got a good number of backlinks and overall authority, many (and perhaps most) of them will never ever see the light of day in Google's index.

        And I'm afraid that's the case with a lot of these directories.

        So if you're submitting good articles to directories/sites you (a) feel confident will still exist in the near future, and (b) will allow your articles to get indexed so they can count for anything (without you having to then build backlinks to each), then good luck to you!

        But wouldn't you rather spend that time backlinking directly to your own site(s) instead?

    Woah for a minute i though you were literally baning out 150 articles a day, but as I am also a article marketer i say do 3-4 high quality articless, that is what i on a regular basis sometimes when i am falling behind i pop 12 articles, but that is just sometimes to keep with the work. do 3 quality a day and you should do great.

    Spun articles, IMO = waste of time. Your time is better spent creating content for your website and distributing that content to various directories for the backlinks.

    Remember, while we are internet marketers, we are also human, too. I can bet there have been times you have been searching online for something that YOU needed, but ended up running into blog or website with content that made barely any logical sense. It's frustrating, isn't it? That's how your readers are going to feel, too.

    If you want to make it online for the long term, give some value. Make your website a place where people WANT to come back and visit and you can do that with great content.

    Make that person a return visitor and now you've got their trust. Get their trust, and you'll be sure to turn them into a long-time customer, which is the overall goal of business in general.

    Opinions on this matter are like Warriors, there are over 36,000 of them. Write your articles, submit them where you want, if your using automated software more power to you. If they get submitted they get submitted, if they don't they don't. You will get the backlinks and depending on the quality of both the article and directory you will get the traffic. I have done this myself and have seen the backlinks that was my intention all along, so knock yourself out.

    But now that I have my site set up and I am looking for quality traffic I only submit my articles to the top 10-12 article directories. Manual approval preferred, High PR, keyword optimized titles. The traffic return is better, the backlinks provide more PR to my site, I don't have to worry about getting a setting wrong in the autosubmitter anymore, and spinners don't turn my horrible writing skills into garbage.

    • Hi! Yes, I have sat down and read 30 or 50 versions of a freshly written then manually rewritten article many times while testing a content spinner and submitter I programmed myself, for our clients. I'm sure everyone knows different people have different things to say about various strategies since they get different results from their different tests using different tools in different scenarios. What I'll do now is share what I've encountered with my own strategies, tools, tests and results in varying scenarios relevant to what's discussed in this thread. I'm not saying anyone here should do this (I'd most likely harm someone's business if I tell anyone that this is an end-all-be-all solution without studying necessary things about the person's business), 'cause I'm just contributing my relevant experience, tests, results, ideas and inferences about such topics.

      Found out that if an article is "well researched and professionally written", then manually rewritten versions of it, especially if slightly different writing tone/style is injected as well as different relevant points not covered by the original version are added to the rewritten versions, then the rewritten versions will also be "very well researched and professionally written" articles, catering to different groups included in the author's collective target audience.

      So, if you rewrite an article this way 10 times, you get 11 "high quality" articles. You can then publish your "high quality" article's original version on your site, under your author name, and submit it to EZA or the top 3 article directories or the top 5 or 10 or or or, under your author name.

      You can then human spin your 10 rewritten articles. If for instance the spinner functionality you programmed uses [,] and |s, you can then place each title between { and }s then separate each one with |s. Afterwards, you can place each paragraph version between [ and ]s separated by a |s. Then, you can enclose at least one section of each title inside the [ and ]s, rewrite it at least 3 times and enclose those rewritten sections inside [ and ]s. At this point, you can rewrite each sentence of each paragraph version at least 3 times and enclose those versions inside [ and ]s. Then, you can rewrite at least 2 sections of each sentence version at least twice and enclose it with [ and ]s. Always separating different versions between [ and ]s with |s, of course, and keeping in mind to use your 3 different target keywords (main keyword and 2 related keywords) as well as your 3 different LSI keywords interchangeably when manually rewriting the content. You can then manually rewrite your "very well written" action paragraph, your resource box, 9 times and keep in mind to interchange your main and related keywords as the links of your different URLs, then manually rewrite it the way you rewrote the title, its different sections, sentences and its sections. At this point, you just write down your main and 2 related keywords as your target keywords. Then, your software should just choose different title section, title, sentence section, sentence and paragraph versions, no automatic replacement of words and phrases from word and phrase thesaurus database. If you rewrote each title section, title, sentence section, sentence and paragraph versions how it actually means though in different tone/style and delivery, your software then finalizes its combination work and gives you a lot of "high quality" articles. If your software can then choose the most unique and readable versions using built-in uniqueness and readability checking applets (an improved uniqueness checking applet of Copyscape and an improved readability checking applet of MS Word's, for instance), you get 30 to 50 "high quality" articles.

      If your software can then schedule the submission of each version (out of 30 versions for instance)after every 30 minutes to say the top 20 article directories using an author account under each directory with the same author name then just email the HTML response of each article directory upon submission completion (no 2 or more versions will be submitted to 2 or more directories using an author account with the same author name, completing one version to all 20 directories first before moving on to the next version using a different author account with a different author name), then Google will most likely think the author is syndicating his article, publishing it on different online places under his author name when they see those links (considering directories publish approved content after different intervals), while the article directories will think different authors of the same company are publishing their articles (since links point to the same website, but if they point to other websites, then article directories will think different authors of different companies are publishing their content). So, 1 version x 1 author account x 20 article directories = 20 published pages x 30 versions using 30 author accounts (1 author account per version) = 600 published pages x 2 backlinks (1 version = 2 backlinks) = 1200 backlinks, built in 3000 hours or less than 4.2 months (30 minutes x 20 submissions per version = 600 minutes x 30 versions = 18000 minutes).

      If it takes you 3 hours to extensively research, professionally write, carefully proofread and publish on your site a "high quality" article covering topics you have expertise in then manually submit it to EZA or the top 3 article directories or the top 5 or the top 10 or so on, and if it takes you another 2 hours to manually rewrite it 10 times and 2 hours more to human spin it the way described above then less than 5 minutes to use your software, you spend 7 hours per day working to get an output described above, "high quality" article directory pages and backlinks submitted for you in 4, 8, 12, 16 20 months or so. Some of your published article's original version and rewritten versions can get a lot of views as mentioned in this thread, while some a bit lower, though some quite low, and the backlinks would be there since you're submitting to the top 20 article directories . The task now would be to find a professional writer with the same expertise in your target topics as you so you can hire this person to do this for you. Other content marketing strategies are different topics, so I won't go into those here. You may find a few points mentioned here helpful, others without utility, some could be improved or modified, though you won't most likely know until you study results from your relevant tests.

    Do you know the difference between submitting an article to GoArticles manually and submitting it with software?

    One takes more time.

    There's a lot of people hating on automation here, but don't let that stop you. I don't know about article demon, but as long as your spinning quality content and submitting to quality article directories, it's effective if all you're after is a backlink.

    I've ranked sites doing quality articles, and I've ranked sites using automation. The only difference is it's easier, and usually faster if you use software correctly.

    You will have an issue getting everything indexed though, so if you can compile a list of your URLs, create RSS feeds through a site like rss2links and then submit that rss feed into rss aggrigators it will help A LOT.

    So are 150-250 submissions a day bad? No. Even with really well spun content some articles will come out crazy looking and not get accepted, and even the good looking ones might have been submitted to the wrong category or something similar, with 150 submission you may only be getting 20-30 accepted. Even if you're getting 150-250 published every day it's not bad. Just keep going that pace until you're ranked, and then continue with that pace to hold that rank.

    Here's a real kicker everyone who posted before me will love to see. If you REALLY want to use that software and provide ONLY QUALITY content, don't spin your articles at all. Just submit the same article to hundreds of sites. Duplicate content mainly refers to the same content being listed on the same url more than once.

      "Duplicate content" refers exclusively (or should do) to multiple instances of the same content/articles published across different pages on a single site.

      The same content published on multiple sites is "syndicated content".

      That's a better way to look at it, anyway, because of all the hysteria and terror that surrounds "duplicate content penalties". It's really not an issue if you're syndicating your content across other sites.

      Yes. In the situations I've encountered, especially currently, auto logins on GoArticles cannot be done anymore. They have implemented code which adds a random check number that is Javascript generated each time a user logs into their article directory. Since I do not know a way to scrape Javascript-generated text as of the moment, I'll continue looking for solutions to go around this. This also produces an inference: If GoArticles can do this, then why haven't the other article directories implemented the same code? A possible answer could be: Most article directories wouldn't want to lose the content constantly submitted by lots of authors using article submitter software. More content under more niches and categories for them = More published pages with ads under more niches and categories = More viewers from organic search traffic = More possible ad clicks and impressions.

    I always love when the to forces of linking schools of thought clash. Its fun to read. I think each has a point, but the 900lb gorilla in the room is Google. The EU is after Google right now after deciding they are not playing fair with rankings and may be slanting things in a way for them to make even more money.

    There is a patent they filed on a new algorithm change that may indicate links with relevant content around them count even more. The Gorilla changes all the time what is important, and when they reward websites with number 1 rankings with 1000's of scrapebox links whats the point of the quality guru's business plan?

    The goal is to get traffic to your money page as fast and as many as possible to convert them into money. End of story. The algorithm change may mean quality article marketing will start dominating. But here is another thing, you do whatever to get rank and Google shows a little pic of your site as people hoover over the link and because of this never click through.

    And what if Google adds adsense to all those hover pics and people click on the ads instead of your site that would be very wrong. You create content, a reason for people to search for solutions to problems, but Google is then using that to entice click's for themselves putting adsense adds in the searchers face with and apparent answer? Its goggles ball, we hope they are doing the right thing but what if all these discussions mean nothing and the wizard of oz has its own game plan?

    But I do think less links, more quality is coming to rank. Profiles will be if little help, spam comments too. At some point 25 quality keyword based articles on ezine, squidoo, hub will dominate 10,000 spam comments. Just not yet though. Scrapebox, xrummer still win and are rewarded.

      I think that would be to contribute content with high relevance, timeliness, popularity and usefulness for the intended audience around more online places heavily trafficked by the target audience and also gain wider business/brand name/link exposure, a more established business/brand name reputation and higher search engine rankings in the process.

      Yes. I think that would involve content with high relevance, timeliness, popularity and usefulness for the intended audience contributed to reputable online places with relevant content heavily trafficked by the intended audience. If I were in the top result on Google for my target keywords, then I must provide content with high relevance, timeliness, popularity and usefulness for my intended audience. For search results 2 to 9 or 20 or so, I can find out if I can contribute content with high relevance, timeliness, popularity and usefulness on those page results, exposing my business/brand name or links pointing to my pages which further contribute supplementary content offering unique benefits to my intended audience. By "unique", it should be benefits that are not provided by that page result and my contributed content there.

      I think if Google places hover ads on links of content publishers implementing content marketing campaigns, this can possibly happen: Google could lose a large percentage of their business to another search engine company offering search advertising. I also think the number of links and the "quality" of the page with those links are used by search engines to determine the popularity of the linked pages. I think they do this because "popularity" can also be a factor which can point out the "usefulness" or "quality" of the linked pages. Search engine companies can define their own set of parameters for "quality", yes, but I do not think that can be implemented in a mathematical set of instructions for automating a process that is universally and statistically accurate in weighing "relevance", "timeliness", "popularity" and "usefulness" (with all 4 factors possibly pointing to "level of quality"). I think "relevance" is onsite and onpage content relevance and SEO (how can the algorithm better crawl, index and rank the content of the site and the page), "timeliness" is new relevant content additions (new relevant content = webmaster and target audience regularly updates site and pages with relevant content), "popularity" is number of links on high authority, high credibility sites and pages offering relevant content for a long time, and "usefulness" is a combination of those 3 factors. If their own formulated sets of mathematical instructions follow this, I think this will be the closest they could get in an automated process following a mathematical set of instructions which gives them a way to attain their most likely goal of providing the most relevant, most timely, most popular and most useful content to their users. Of course, I also think they need to constantly monitor and improve this mathematical set of instructions for it to constantly evolve and keep at pace with the rapidly changing Internet, technology and relevant activities of people around the world on the Internet and for using new technology.

    This is hilarious: the purists versus the original post...I can't help but notice that 90% of you missed the point entirely. The question wasn't, "Should I spin and submit articles using an automated tool," but, "I AM using Article Demon, HOW MANY should I submit?"

    Classic case of gimme a break.

    Here's to the original questioner:

    As many as it takes. If you have AD and not AMR, you'll blaze through that list really quickly unless you have your own sites added to AD.

    Using AMR, I've submitted up to 1200 a day.

    Top ranks, in every single case. Those who claim that sales aren't there...too funny. Not sure what you did wrong, but I've just spent 2010 disproving your theory that spun content doesn't mean top ranking, or that spun content won't cause an increase in the SERPs.

    More sales, more traffic, better rankings: spun content. My time? 1 hour, 1200+ directories.

    Spin. Submit. Ignore the purists who answer phantom questions.

    All the naysayers with automated tools: not interested in the debate. I don't think hijacking the thread to answer a completely different question served any purpose other than made you all feel better about your own marketing decisions. It didn't have a thing to do with the original question.

      I think it is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS to drip feed articles and here's why: if you submitted them all at once to each article directory, they all get submitted to the directories at once but they don't all get APPROVED at once! If you're worried about getting too many backlinks all of a sudden, it takes some article reviewers longer to review articles than others. So it's absolutely pointless to drip feed articles because they will drip feed them for you by not accepting them all at the same time.

    Personally when I start reading an article that I can tell was spun (grammar is really bad) I just leave. But when I come across an article that looks like someone actually wrote I'll start reading it and if it's good I'll finish the complete article and usually visit the person's website.

    If it's spun I leave right away, and I figure if I do so do most people.

      I'm sure many do.

      Some of the people spinning their articles would - and do - contend, though, that they're not designed for people to read in the first place; only for search engines, because of the backlink-value ... but these are typically people who imagine that the backlink attached to a spun article is somehow, mysteriously, different from the backlink attached to a syndicated article, so you can't always "reason" with them too easily!

    150-250 articles per day would useally be considered too much, unless your targeting a broad range of different niches and using different keywords, furthermore Google likes to a consistent addition when it comes to back links so 250 a day indefinitely would be too hard to maintain.

    Do you post all the articles to the same directory or different ones? And do you use a different keyword for each article, since otherwise you'd have 250 articles competing with each other.

    Its a decision you must make, but try testing with different alternatives such as 20 unique articles a day at different keywords, you'll be suprised that sometimes less is more.

    Good-luck,

      It is apparent this is a very touchy topic. From 11/19/10 to 11/30/10 I submitted a very good spun article to 425 directories total averaging 38 per day for this topic. 185 accepted the article and 141 were live on the site when I check on 11/30/10.

      I did not submit the original or any spun article to any of the top article directories.

      Just checked this e commerce site and traffic has increased by almost 30 visitors per day from the search engines since I started it. Plus he has received 3 sales in the last week. So this is telling me it is working.

      The next step now is to create 5 original articles on the topic, submit to 5 of the top directories and see what happens in the next 2 weeks.

        Cybermatrix -

        On another WF thread, a pretty astute fella wrote that he had taken his articles (the originals from Ezine, etc.) and re-submitted them to Associated Content (same user name on both). The traffic he said was astounding.

        BTW, I wouldn't submit tons when a site is new - I'd give it a good 3-4 weeks and until then, submit originals to the top 10 directories or whatever, manually.

        Then bomb it. I do this for myself and my clients. Been working all year, so keep at it (although I'd recommend AMR vs. AD - 2775 directories).

      Since I don't do much article marketing per se I can't really answer your question. But you mentioned that you had a 1000 word article of high quality. You could expand your backlink base by just repurposing that same article. Turn it into a pdf, a podcast, a tutorial, slide show, video etc. and submit to corresponding sites. Combine that with some forum and blog posting with anchor text backlinks to that article on your site and you might find you get more link juice than just banging on article directories.

      Good luck,

      It's been said 100 times already, but I thought I'd give my two cents. There is such an enormous amount of garbage floating around these days online that those who take the time to create fantastic content will ultimately become the most successful. Taking shortcuts like using article-spinning is not original content and therefore is not going to produce like original content would. You can create a million garbage backlinks and they aren't going to help you like 100 quality backlinks would.

      I've written many quality articles that have been picked up by quality blogs and these have given me lots of power on Google that I would not have gotten had I spun a bunch of articles.

      That's my experience... quality content is king!

        I swear people just don't believe this.

        However many people say it, explain it, justify it, illustrate it and comment on it, many people just will not believe it.

        And ultimately, there's nothing you can do about that, except put the truth out there (as you kindly have done) to be picked up by people who want to pick it up.

    To those who hate spiners, I have taken the time to write this response, re-write it into my spinner, spun it about 50 times, and here is the result. Perfectly readable content that flows naturally.

    You see, spinning content is not all that bad, when it is done by a human. These types of spinners take a considerable amount of time, but it is worth the extra effort because you get your point across to a much wider audience with less chance of duplicate content.

    Sure, I know that submitting to higher ranking directories is important, so I always submit the original article to those sites before spinning anything.

    This way, I get the best of both worlds. Quality content on higher ranking directories, and spun articles (which, by the way, no-one would ever know that they were spun) spread out all across the web which increases my traffic like crazy.

    So I say, if you're going to take the time to human-spin your stuff, go for it! The unreadable garbage that computers spit out, however, is completely worthless.

    Good Luck!

      This way, I get the best of both worlds. Quality content on higher ranking directories, and spun articles (which, by the way, no-one would ever know that they were spun) spread out all across the web which increases my traffic like crazy.

      So I say, if you're going to take the time to human-spin your stuff, go for it! The unreadable garbage that computers spit out, however, is completely worthless.

      Good Luck!
      Great observation there. Manually spinning stuff will typically yield good results if you're a decent writer with good command of the English language, as you'll know how words 'flow' together, and instinctively know what sounds awkward and what doesn't (unlike article spinner software). Of course, you'd reserve your highest quality "unspun" articles for the top article directories and use the "spun" ones for distribution to the less important/smaller ones, which is a completely logical and effective way of approaching this.

          A backlink placed without regard to where it is or where it points.

          A good example would be the people who post comments on my blog as "Cheap Generic Viagra" or something similar.

          My blog is not about Viagra, or anything that involves Viagra. It is not about medications, generic or otherwise, and it has nothing to do with finding cheap anything.

          And to top it off, the URL that it links to? Well, first, the site is in Russian. And second, it's got no cheap generic Viagra on it - it's a pirate music site where you can order burned copies of CDs for a buck. (Don't ask me what kind of idiot gives these people his credit card and mailing address. I can't fathom such a thing. It buggers the imagination.)

          So nothing matches up. The audiences aren't the same, the subjects aren't the same, and this is where LSI kicks in... because the search engines can't tell what subjects my blog and this site are about, but using LSI, they can tell how similar their respective subjects are.

          And they're not even remotely similar. Neither is the site at the end of the link similar to other sites which rank highly for the anchor text.

          That's a garbage backlink.

          A quality backlink, on the other hand, would be if this guy had left the comment on a blog post that was actually discussing where to get cheap generic Viagra, and the site at the other end of the link was in fact about cheap generic Viagra. When the LSI does the subject check and comes up "source = anchor = destination," this link counts a lot more in terms of relevance.

          But here's the thing: search engines don't care about the quality of your backlinks... until your ranking gets high enough, for a keyword that's popular enough, for a long enough time that the LSI is worth doing. (Unless you get side-effect analysis. More on this in a moment.) And until then, garbage backlinks are every bit as good as other backlinks.

          A quick mention of side-effect analysis: if you link to (or get linked by) a site that is popular enough to get LSI, your site may be evaluated to see how well it matches that other site... and once that's happened, you'll start to see some of the effects of LSI even though you're not important enough to get the full treatment.

          So be careful who you listen to about SEO. It's a whole different ball game from one set of keyword research to the next. You can get away with all the blue fart BS you like when you're targeting "cardboard scuba tanks" and getting near-zero traffic, but then you try the same stuff with something more important and your rankings plummet.

        Sure, manually spun works well and sounds great. Then you start doing it for a living and develop RSI, like I have - software helps, trust me.

        Garbage articles? Not on your life, not from me. The thing is, using a spinner doesn't mean garbage articles - unless you never edit.

        I still can't quite understand the emotional response tied to manual vs. automated methods. Ridiculous - debating for the sake of debating, that is.

          Of course, manually spun articles by definition can also be logically extended to include automatically spun articles that are edited by hand. I feel that as long as you go over the finished results manually and do not just blindly use what is produced by the article spinner, then you should be fine.

      Seriously, I don't hate spinners-the-scripts.

      I hate spinners-the-marketers.

      The people who take those scripts, buy a bunch of cheap articles, and then produce a massive quantity of absolute garbage that they spew all over the net like a vomiting moose hanging from the back of a low-flying Cessna.

      And now, whatever keyword they were targeting, they temporarily flood with their puked-up unreadable crap. So for some period of time, all I can find about this or that keyword is a bunch of the same spun article.

      So if I'm looking for actual information, I can't find it.

      And if I'm doing keyword research, this completely screws up my competition analysis.

      I don't have any objection to the spinner script itself, or to the spun article. Both of these can be done very, very well. But no matter how good your spinner script is, a moron can always pick it up and generate a flood of worthless bile that gets all over everything. Because, like all tools, a spinner script is only as good as the person using it.

    I try and write one unique article a day, sometimes two, I've tried spinning articles but the quality doesn't seem that good, maybe its the spinner I'm using. I'm not really convinced about the benefits of submitting to hundreds of obscure article sites.

    How many articles you submit needs to be a part of a strategy. Develop a strategy that is based on the market or niche you are trying to dominate. It also has to do with competition etc.

    Nobody builds without a foundation, the strategy is the first place to start.

    All the best.

    It is not about quantity as much as it is with quality.

    Quality articles bring in opt in subscribers and sales for me. One article I got for free back in 2008 is still my most viewed article and I know that I can sit on my fat arse and still see it get results (more subscribers to my list and some sales) by doing nothing.

    That is because it is a good article. The difference between having a good article a bad one is significant.

    Hope this helps.

    If your purpose is the backlink you get to your MONEY pages to improve your SERPS, then in my opinion, quality is not that important.

    If you plan to write articles to make money out of them directly, then focus on quality and submit them to the top directories as many people are doing.

    I personally use software for submissions, cause more backlinks = better serps and regarding duplicate content... what happens with syndicated content???? I'm really skeptical regarding that topic, imo duplicate content is not that damaging at some extent.

    I think the general message is consistent. Quality articles, may be spun by human (or at least edited by human) only 2,3 or max 5 times. Submit them to top 5 article directories of your choice..... Is all you need.

    Any maybe if you want to drop the quality a little bit (being naughty but practical for raising authority to your articles) and use them to promote your article submissions.

    It is hard to say how many without testing it first. I remember for one site of mine I was doing 1200-5000 per day and it got stuck at #1 place within a month time, now is getting harder so I just lower that to 1200 per week to avoid any bad rank drops, but again it doesn't work for all sites and you need to use also other types of backlinks.

    Hi Cybermatrix,

    I suppose the only way of finding any real answers is to test this process out and then come to a conclusion on it.

    People are always going to have their views on it and that's fine.

    Constructive critisism is a great thing to have!

    No need to spin articles, if you can't write original articles, you can always outsource, then submit original and unique article to each directory, so at the end, you will have very high quality articles online and the search engines will give your website credit.

    I am an article marketer and I submit up to 8 articles each day. I am afraid with the update that google has today, 150 is just too much. Plus I really don't think you'll get as much good quality with spinning software. You might as well do some manual rewrite which won't affect the quality of your content.

    I don't think you should submit so many articles, 1 or 2 good articles or doing good guest posts on weekly basis is good enough to support you blog you should also spend some time on social networks to gain maximum benefit..! I strongly suggest guest posts then article submission but some good ones like articlebase or ezinearticles you should submit sometimes other than that is a waste of time..!
