    IU have posted similar POST, just with slight different variations a week ago.
    But now it seems that it`s really a lot of that kind of websites giving credibility these days!

      The page ranks shown above are simply the pages ranks of the directories' home pages. But they're not very relevant, because articles submitted to them - just like articles submitted to any other article directories - don't go on their home pages: they go on PR-0 pages (yes, even at Ezine Articles).

      And that's without even mentioning the fact that some of those sites are actually not technically article directories at all, and have sometimes vastly differing terms of service, some requiring previously unpublished content; others not, etc. etc. It's very important, before submitting anything to a website you don't own yourself, to read its terms of service carefully.

      Sorry, but you did ask!

          Well said by you.

          In fact I'd go as far as saying you (not you but anyone else reading this) may want to reconsider even bothering building an online business if you don't read a third parties or any sites TOS.

          It amazes me how many people neglect to do this.

          The trouble is, when you read through the comments and someone like that chimes in with total misinformation, it's sad and pretty obvious that they don't read past the OP. In their desperation to make a post they completely ignore the fact they've no idea what they're talking about and to be frank I doubt that will ever change.

          However, if it helps just one person in each thread to realise some are walking the walk and others are simply not, then you've done a very good thing.

    Hmm. Will not backlinks from high pr homepages like listed above potentially increase page rankings on google? Also, doesn't high pr homepages ranking help determine the quality of a website, and whether you want to gain a backlink from that website or not?

    I am just asking because that what I have read.

      Yes.

      But you don't get backlinks from home pages when you submit an article to a directory: you get backlinks from the pages on which the articles appear (which are PR-0).

      It's very easily verified. Just submit an article to EZA and then check its page rank when it's published. It's PR-0.

      Websites don't "have page rank". Pages have page rank.

      Nobody knows the answer to this, though many people think so, and state it as if it were factual; yes. (Personally, I believe it, though page rank is very minor in importance compared with context-relevance).

      What's more certain is that article directory backlinks are non-context-relevant, PR-0 backlinks, and you'll typically need something between 50,000 and 100,000 of them to confer the link-juice equivalent to one backlink from a relevant authority-site. Which is why depending on article directories for their backlinks leads for the most part to people either quietly dropping out of the business and out of this forum and/or coming back a year later and starting a thread under the title "Article Marketing Doesn't Work Any More" (you must have seen many of those threads here?) because, for them, of course, it usually doesn't.

      "Article marketing" is a whole different world from "article directory marketing".

      Yes this will improve your overall site rankings. Just remember to mix it up a bit with keyword variations and link to deep pages as well and not just your home page.

    Yea - page rank and Alexa ratings don't mean much these days IMO. I have a directory that gets consistent 1st page rankings for all sorts of different articles - but my home page page rank is zero (I don't know why with my 30K+ some odd, mostly relevent backlinks, but I digress). Also, a couple of weeks ago, the traffic to the site more than doubled, and has increased daily (except the weekend when it usually drops) - but in Alexa.com, although the rating has gone up ever so slightly, the graphs make it look like it has gone down. Go figure.

    I guess my point is that the consideration of these parameters in Google's rankings must be pretty dang minimal, at best. In my experience anyway.

    Good luck!

    But Again, The PR Of Homepages Matter.

    High PR Sites Are Recognized As Google As Authoritative Sites.

      @journey7 Maybe you should change your sig and then your posts might be treated less suspiciously

      I think that you will find that the Alexa ranking isn't that important either. Those rankings are determined by those who have the Alexa tool in their browser. As it is mostly (maybe misguided) internet marketers who have it in their browser it isn't a cross section of all Internet users.



      @Allen Graves I think you will find that you have more visitors looking for information rather than looking for an article directory to submit to and that's much better for you and your authors than being higher in the Alexa rankings, or having a higher PR for that matter. You must be doing something right

      Once again (since the first couple of times apparently fell on stony ground, here), there's no such thing as a "high PR site". Websites don't have page rank. Pages have page rank.

      Also, as a separate issue, you're confusing "authority sites" and "sites with high PR home pages". There are some cases of overlap, but they're essentially two different things.

      For anyone being "guided" by the contents of this thread: this comment is just completely wrong, with regard to article directories. In link-juice terms, they're very close to being "the lowest of the low".

        You may be more correct than you thought. The website already has a message: Webmaster please contact HostGator Support.

        As for the discussion here: Alexa is of course correct. Not much else needs to be said.

    Hey dude thanks for the list.

    This thread is an example of what forums is not suppose to be about. A poor newcomer just providing some info on a bunch on high PR sites (just gave a list) and then get judged and bombed from left to right.

    As far as I am concerned if you are able to post info on a high (front page) PR site the inside pages are indexed a lot faster which means you will benefit more that a website with a low (front page) PR

    If PR was not so relevant anymore then how come google waste time updating it every few months

      I think you misunderstand - people who might express alternate viewpoints here are not trying to "bomb" anyone - they are just trying to prevent even more added nonsense about PR and "link juice" from going (or remaining) mainstrream.

    Just thought I'd chime in on this.

    Alexa, you keep saying that articles on all article directories go on a PR-0 page.

    That's just not accurate. I can show you several examples of article pages with 1, 2, even 3 PR. While most of them are PR-0 pages, it is not true that all of them are.

    In the cases I've seen, they have PR within the next PR toolbar update.

    edit: no backlink building either...you're right on target with your opinion of building backlinks to article directories.

      I think Alexa meant when you first submit the article, it will be on a page (where the actual article gets posted) with a PR0.

      Just because the home page has PR5 doesn't mean if you submit an article there, your article page will be PR 5 as well.

      Of course, over time, your article page may increase in ranking with backlink building and other SEO efforts. But that doesn't have anything to do with the home page PR and you can achieve that on any domain no matter the PR.

    I'm saying that in the mainstream article directories, they start on PR-0 (or PR-not-available) pages, Allen.

    There are people who are naive enough to build backlinks and send traffic to article directory copies of articles, rather than to their own websites, and those pages can of course acquire page-rank through off-page SEO, just as any other web page can. There are even article directory situations similar to posting a comment on someone's blog-page which already has some page-rank, but they can also have the same problems as those blog-comments have, regarding maintaining their page-rank, where they'll end up, and so on - and of course they're typically non-context-relevant anyway ...

    I'm simply trying to counter the extremely widespread but ill-informed belief that article directories are "authority sites", that people submitting to EZA are getting PR-6 backlinks out of it just because EZA's own home page is PR-6 and all the other nonsense that people are told by all these ludicrously misguided "article marketing advice" products they've bought which are just packed out with misinformation and urban myths. :rolleyes:

    Do you see what I mean, Allen?

    This is the exactly type of nonsense that people will believe, if we don't correct it.

    People look at these threads, and because it's the Warrior Forum (which is an "authority site", for internet marketing advice), some of them are gullible enough to imagine that this sort of nonsense is actually true!

    They don't necessarily realise that they're losing most of their traffic, that way. People prefer to say "I have a 25% click-through rate from XYZ article directory" because that way they feel as if they're actually gaining something, rather than allowing themselves to realise that what's actually happening is that they're losing 75% of their potential customers at XYZ article directory. And that the higher XYZ site ranks in Google, the more of a threat its ranking will be to their own site, and the more of it they'll lose.

    I tell people that I have 1,600 articles in EZA and that I hope to get none of my potential customer traffic that way, and they're so brainwashed by all this urban myth and nonsense that they don't understand why that's a good thing for me and puts more money in my bank account.

    But "it must all be true: I read it in the Warrior Forum".
