Best way to submit articles?

29 replies
What is the best way to submit articles the fastest way, I want to submit to a lot of article directories at once, and I want it to be free.

When submitting articles, what do people regularly do? submit articles they have on their webpage, or unique ones? and if they post articles they already have, isn't that duplicate content?

    Why?

    If you have a (quick) look at the enormous number of threads here with titles like "Article Marketing Is Dead" and "Article Marketing Doesn't Work", it'll take you no time at all to appreciate that that's what almost all the people who started those threads have been doing. In one sense, they're right: it doesn't work. In another sense they're totally wrong: they imagine that that comprises "article marketing" and it doesn't at all - it's only one tiny part of article marketing, and typically not a successful one at all - and of course there are many reasons for that.

    No; it isn't duplicate content. It's "syndicated content".

    Charlie, please excuse the observation that you may be labouring under a misapprehension or two, at the moment.

    I think these threads will help you a lot
    , if you can find the time to read them ...

    This thread could be written just for you, given what you've asked!

    In this long thread a whole succession of professional, successful article marketing experts explain why you shouldn't submit to an article directory any articles that haven't first been published and indexed on your own site.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...marketing.html This one explains the underlying basis of article marketing, and will clearly help you.

    This one explains a lot of stuff about "spinning" and why most professional article marketers think it's a waste of time, and based on fallacies and mistaken beliefs about "duplicate content".

    This one explains why it's seriously bad news to create backlinks to article directories.

    This one explains a bit more about article directories and writing for syndication.

    This one is about "unique content" and a bit about link-juice, I think.

    This one is about writing for syndication.

      Thanks for your reply, I understand that you have to mix it up and give value while your doing it, focusing on only SEO will hurt you.

      One question I had in my head is how to market affiliate review sites, there is no other way than article marketing? do you have any suggestions?

    Focusing only on article submission is not a good approach. You should focus on other SEO techniques as well.

      You look at article submission as "an SEO technique", do you, Steve?!

      People who build their successful businesses primarily by article marketing tend not to look at it that way at all.

    Fastest way to submit articles:

    1. Write the article
    2. Publish it on your site
    3. Prepare it for submission (I like to trim down my original articles, not rewrite, just trim so my site always has the biggest and baddest articles in town)
    4. Open each article directory in a separate tab (hint: if you want to make it go fast then have them each open to the article submission page!)
    5. Paste your article into the appropriate fields
    6. Submit
    7. Rinse and repeat!

    What do you guys think...Should I make a WSO and call it The Easiest Way to Make Tons of $$$ in 7 Simple Steps?

    Of course, the OTO (for no less than 3 monthly payments of $47)would be Hidden steps 8 and 9...

    8. Track where your article gets published
    9. Offer webmasters unique content in exchange for authority links

    Hope that helps...I'll come delete this post when I make my WSO

      The debate is whether or not to submit excellent original work. Some good threads on that too.

    If you can't figure out how to write for SEO and the reader .. article marketing might not be your best bet. It is very simple to get the keyword in at about 1% or so and not disrupt flow.

    Now if you are syndicating just to e zines or mailing list .. SEO doesn't mean much but then again ... no article should be syndicated until it has done the absolute most it can for your own pages .. sites .. and business first. I guess it would be smart to learn to SEO and flow at the same time.

    There are plenty of article directories out there you can google to send ya articles too. The problem is that takes way to much time. I suggest getting some software that does it automatically. I paid a one time fee for lest than 100$ so it a sound investment to make.

    The article directories are free, except for Articledashboard right now. They're offering a $47 price for their premium service. Here's my top five that you will want to submit to. You'll get 95% of your internet traffic from these sites:

    1) Ezinearticles
    2) Goarticles
    3) Ideamarketers
    4) Articlesbase
    5) Articledashboard

    This should do you well. These sites exist for a reason, and you can benefit from using them. Don't let the technical terms and techniques delude you. How long do you think it would take for you to build a PR5 and above site like the sites above? They can get you traffic. Ezinearticles themselves say that you need about 2,000 articles before you can start seeing any real significant results.

    If there's anyone who wants that email where Ezinearticles says that, PM me with your email address.

    Hy Randall,

    You wrote: Ezinearticles themselves say that you need about 2,000 articles before you can start seeing any real significant results.

    So my website is 13 days old, and I put my blogpost first on my own site than too amazines, ezinemark and ideamarketers.

    My goal is to have fast as possible, 200-300 visitors each day to monetize it with amazon and adsense.

    But when ezine says that a minimum of 2000 article is needed to see the first results???
    With 2000 articles my content is empty......

    best wishes

      It's total nonsense. It's insane.

      From EZA, I mean (if they said it), not from Randall!

      I don't have 2,000 articles there, and I've been making a very good living from article marketing for years, now.

      They want to encourage people to submit large numbers of articles, of course, for their own purposes, but that isn't how article directories work (for marketers!) at all.

      I just replied to your post in another thread, explaining the details of this, and I think the links there answer your question: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5786128

      Marco, putting a minimum of 2000 articles on someone else's website is insane -- especially for free. Do not do that! 2000 (quality) articles on your own website will turn it into an authority website which will naturally pull in 200-300 visitors each day.

    Submit an original and good quality content. Most article submission sites are very strict. Along with article submission, practice good SEO strategies if you aiming to get more traffic for you website.

    There is rarely an instance where quick and free can be used to explain something in IM. I personally use AMR for article submission but the tool itself does cost money and you will need to develop a good article list after that because the free one isn't that great. Article submission is a good way to get some more ip diversity and it can be effective in combination with some other seo techniques.

    I know this is going to be a little off-topic, but rather than submitting your articles on those article directories, wouldn't it be better to take advantage of the freshness factor by adding those articles on your site instead?

      Yes indeed ... clearly not many article marketers in their right minds are going to submit content elsewhere without having it published and indexed first on their own site, so as gradually to accumulate the striking SEO benefits of all those initial indexation-rights.

      And this was pretty fully covered in post #2 above.

      But, as sometimes seen in such discussions, there are still people who are ill-informed enough to believe either that "Ezine Articles publishes only unique content" (that's never been true, of course), or that one can somehow benefit by giving them unique content rather than publishing it oneself first. :rolleyes:

      Let's face it: many people don't know the difference between "article marketing" and "article directory marketing". Some of them imagine that what they're doing is "article marketing" when in fact they're building up article directories instead of their own sites, losing most of their traffic that way, and have entirely missed the point of how article directories actually work and why they exist. http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5068872

      Those, of course, are the people who've started off 100+ threads here with titles very similar to "Article Marketing Is Dead". For them, it is dead - the only thing is that what they're doing isn't actually article marketing at all: they're just trying to use article directories for their own traffic and/or for their own backlinks. Nobody who's earning anything from it imagines that that's "alive".

    You can submit your articles to different directories, as long as this didn't break their rules. Besides articles submission, you can do lots of things with your articles.

    Hy

    @JOSourcing,
    yous say better but the 2000 articles on my own site, yes I understand you.

    But, in moment (my website and blogger are now 13 days old-fitness niche), so I have 35 articles on my own website and 30 on my blogger website.

    Less less traffic.So when 35 posts brings less traffic, than xample 2000 articles/posts brings me more traffic?

    I only do every post to feedage and ping with that ping optimizer wordpress plugin, not more.

    Should I do writing every day, so in one year my own website is 1200 posts big, and weekly post 2 articles to 5-10 fitness magazines? And this only is enough to get this target traffic?

    What is with the keywords in the title and content of my post, should I use keywords i found with quotations in google or similiar lsi keywords?

    Or keywords with less searchvolume and less competition so like John says in his 2. xfactor ebook?

    Thanks for tips and best wishes

      It could -- it really depends on the content's value and reach (SEO, backlinks, ranking, social shares, etc.)

      I don't recommend posting everyday just for the sake of reaching a numeric goal. Only post when you have something significant to share. Playing the numbers game is a sure-fire way to reach burnout. A single post, after all, could be strong enough to attract ten times the visitors that five posts pulled in simply because it's high quality.

      In regards to magazine submissions, see my reply to you in this post: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5791431

      Google's keyword suggestion tool provides some good leads... You'll want to start with exact matches and include your keyword(s) in the content 2 - 3 times (placing it in the title is not necessary). Include related keyword phrases even less. If your content is well written, there will be no mistake about its purpose and value, and Google will rank it accordingly.

      Now I'm not familiar with John's material, but with social shares taking so much precedence these days, I'm not sure keyword competition is as important as it once was. An article that's genuinely +1'd or retweeted or liked or linked to 456,148 times, for example, will rank better than any article that simply exploits a low competition keyword.

      You can never go wrong if you aim for value over a strict formula -- especially when everyone else is using the same formula!

    Hy,

    also JOSourcing,

    When I wrote as post it goes to feedage and rssjuice and ping optimizer, this alone brings zero-less traffic.

    I have a blogger fitness website too, here I make rss too,ping, submitt to folkd and every day 3-4 twitter tweeds, here conmes daily traffic but less, 5-8 visitors a day or so.

    Many Guru's/Marketer's tell us about huge huge huge traffic........(target)

    I don't understand this in such a big niche, here I must become more traffic.
    I think it will be need time to rank piece of piece better in google with more content.

    Best method to find similiar keyword to my phrase intitle i snot search in "quotes", no,
    I use search term intitle:keywords bla bla bla, with this when shown little competition in google I use this title phrase.

    best wishes
