I think Im done with ezine now.

13 replies
I have submitted high quality articles. I mean, they are articles that I have put time into. And possibly I would like to move to another article website that has a high volume of traffic and allows follow links. Any suggestions?

Im not entirely giving up on writing articles, I just want my quality articles that I put so much time into, to be accpeted.

    I like squidoo, it is not exactly a place to post articles. But it works great for SEO in my experience.

    And there is an active community you can build relationships with.

    My advice to clients has been to use this time as an oppurtunity to reach out and explore new possibilities. Force themselves out of the comfort-zone so to speak.

    EZA, and the more basic versions of bum/article marketing in general, should never have been the sole traffic/backlink-generator for any IMer whose goal is longevity.

    Diversity through syndication, publishing content in actual ezines (newsletters), and promoting your work to people who actually appreciate it (private niche blogs) is a MUCH better path to travel in these tumultuous times.

    Take a look at this list. It will give you an updated look at the top 50 article directories, as rated by traffic and page rank. (As a brief aside, the list has, unsurprisingly, undergone some big changes since the Panda update). I really like this list because it gets updated every day. That way, you're not dealing with old information.

    As you'll see on the list, there is alot more out there besides EZA. Try submitting to several of them, and see which ones you like the best.

    Also, there's one site that I love that isn't on the list (because it's not an article directory, per se, but more of an online magazine) - American Chronicle. If your niche falls in one of their topics, I would definitely suggest writing for them, too. They are affiliated with a bunch of online newspapers and magazines, so it's very easy for your stuff to get syndicated.

      Great share Nicole, a couple there I haven't used as of yet and something I am sure the op will benefit from if he uses too.

      Thanks!

        Thanks Nicole,

        Personally, I've always been a little shy of article marketing, but I am starting an off line business next week, which can be also promoted well using on line techniques, especially I think, article marketing.

        I'll try some writing myself but naturally I'll outsouce too. Thanks again for sharing the sites.

        Regards,
        Jeff.

    What a great list Nicole - thanks. I have bookmarked that and I'm sure I'll find some great directories that I haven't seen before.

    Take this opportunity to stop depending upon article directories and submit to sites that want your article topic. You'll get more direct traffic from a site that is already in your niche!

    Thanks - I had never come across this one and it looks good. It is a little strange that on their home page under the "Recent News" heading there are titles that are months and even years old. ??? I guess I need to poke around the site a little more.

      Hmm... haven't seen that. Although, I haven't been on there too much lately (been too busy writing for clients to write for myself these days! )

      Definitely take a look around, though. All of the stuff I've seen on there is a much higher-quality than what you see on a traditional article directory. They do take the time to approve each article, but I usually get my stuff approved in about 48 hours.

    I don't depend on Ezinearticles for my traffic or backlinks, but i read a few posts where people are complaining about review times etc.
    I had some time to kill so i checked out a few articles that have been submitted and approved within 4-7 days. Some of them were lets say 'not worth reading' providing zero benefit.

    They were all from platinum level authors, i suspect in their effort to police articles better they are scrutinizing articles from lower level authors while letting others slide with dubious articles, probably because they are under staffed.

    If they are trying to weed out the bad articles they should treat all articles the same otherwise they are wasting their time.

    I believe adding quality content to my website with a good link building method is better than relying on a third party...
