    Yes you can submit it to anywhere if you are sure that it is a unique content.

      Yes, you can submit it to as many sites as you want. But be sure that your content is original and does not contain any duplicate content, b/c high PR sites automatically detect duplicate content and then your article would not get approved for sure..!!

    It depends on the quality of the directory. The better ones only accept unique content. It's best to look at their TOS (Terms of Service) before you submit.

    Rewrite your article so you can submit it to the directories that require original unique content, it really doesn't take that long to rewrite an article properly.

    Then you can use them all to submit multiple articles to many more directories that don't insist on unique content.

      The only article directory I've ever heard of which requires unique content is Buzzle.

      (Like many other full-time professional article marketers, I don't use it, for this exact reason).

      If anyone knows another article directory which requires unique content, now would be a very time to name it, before we get any more misinformation creeping into the thread, like that above!

      As long as you don't use Buzzle, there's absolutely NO need to rewrite your articles at all before submitting them. There've been at least 2 or 3 threads per week here, over the last year, clarifying this matter in great detail.

        Alexa correct me if I'm wrong but associated content only allows unique content to be published on their site.

          Associated Content isn't an article directory, Ted. There are lots and lots of places online where you can't post copies of articles (including this section of this forum!), but this thread's about article directories.

              You are actually wrong, I'm afraid. EZA specifically invites its authors to submit copies of work which they've previously had published in other places online (as long as they're in the same name/pen-name). Like many professional article marketers, I have over 1,000 articles at EZA all of which had originally been published in other places online, prior to EZA submission.

              Because people keep asking (which is fair enough, of course) but when they do, they keep getting misinformed by other people who don't know what they're talking about (which really isn't, at all).

                I'm guessing with that wink at the end you're hinting that I don't know what I'm talking about. :rolleyes:
                I stated that high quality places (Such as Buzzle + Associated Content) would require you to read their tos as they only allow unique content.
                Associated content may not be an article directory but many Internet Marketers still post there quite often.
                The only place I wasn't 100% sure of was Ezine articles as I normally use my articles there as the 'original' and re-write it for other lower PR directories.

                  Apart from this strange little hallucination of Associated Content being an article directory, you mean?!

                  Well, I can possibly help you there, too: if you want to see why a very large group of very successful, professional, experienced article marketers wisely consider that such a deeply misguided plan, see for yourself what they all have to say about the subject in this long and excellent thread.

                  I suspect that when you refer to "lower PR directories" you're actually referring to the PR of their home-pages, Ted? That isn't where your articles go.

                  It's pages that have page-rank, and your articles in EZA go on non-context-relevant PR-0 pages just like mine do, and just like they do in other directories.

                  In this context, however (and the reason this thread was started specifically to ask about this matter), the point is that there's absolutely no need to re-write them for other article directories (apart from for Buzzle, as observed above, for those using that directory).

            Alexa- I get the impression that makers of spinning and submission software can share some blame for all of the confusion about "original content"
            One thing I've missed in these discussions is the use of automated article submission software without spinning. Do you use automation at all?

    you can post to as many as you want, most directories will accept it (although some may check). however, if you add variations, it definitely will be more effective. so, upto u.

    Does this apply to PLR articles as well or are you required to make those articles unique to you before posting to directories such as EZ?

        Absolutely ... EZA hates PLR so much that they won't (normally - though some have got through) allow even a resource-box link to a page that refers to PLR!

      According to the Google Webmaster Guidelines, duplicate content does not referrer to article marketing. Article marketing is exactly as it sounds, the marketing of an article. With the new recent Google algorithm update, and certain marketing content sites effected, should there be a change in direction, in regards to the focus of back-linking through article submissions?

    1st, submit your article to the top directories like ezine. After the acceptance you can submit the same articles to various lower-level directories or you can read that it before sending those 2nd tire article directories

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Suite101 requires that they obtain the exclusive rights of your articles for 1 year. I haven't had any problem with them so far and I have been submitting my articles all over, but just let me know if that is the case.

    Thanks

    Duplicate article posting means more links, but there is a catch.

    Many article directories welcome any and all ORIGINAL content -- meaning that you wrote it or have the rights to publish it.

    HOWEVER, some of the more authoritative directories, like ezinearticles.com and articlesbase.com want to have exclusive content, or at least be the first to post it. Therefore, part of their evaluation process includes the use of tools like copyscape to scour the web, looking for your in other places. If they find your article on another directory, even with you as its author, they will reject it.

    THEREFORE, it is important to submit the article to authoritative directories first. Wait for them to accept and post your article BEFORE blasting it out to other, less exclusive directories.

    ONE EXCEPTION, I've been successful at posting articles to my blog first, then submitting them to ezinearticles.com, with the article containing a backlink to the "original article" on my blog. Even though the articles are word for word duplicates of my blog posts, they accepted them without complaining about their presence on my blog. It may have something to do with the fact that I use my real name as author, for my blog name and domain.

    ***UPDATE***
    I see that @Alex Smith has specific experience with Ezine and indicates that they DO ACCEPT previously published works, as long as the author/pen name is the same.

    Hello friends. I am a content writer for the last 3 years. And quality of the content is just one thing. Different sites have different conditions in my humble opinion. As i had to write for the SEO department different articles with different quality for different websites. I don't know what you guys would say on that. Because that is my opinion. please correct me if i am wrong. Thanks.
