Have You Ever Had EA Reject Your Articles For 'No Reason'?

by Rachel Incoll 48 replies
Hi guys,

I just had 3 articles rejected by Ezine Articles without any reason given. Yep, they've cited 'General Error' as the reason for rejecting them & to find out more I need to contact them (which I've done). As it's probably going to be 48 hours or so before they get back to me, I was just wondering if anyone else has had this experience with them, & if so what the problem was?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I figure if they can't actually give a reason for the rejection in their email like they usually do (ie. it's broken rule #4e etc.), then that should mean that the article hasn't 'violated' their written & publicly displayed guidelines/rules. If it hasn't violated any of their written, publicly known rules, then it should be accepted. Obviously someone thinks there's a problem with them but I'm a bit suspicious considering they haven't specified what.

I have over 35 articles published with them & most of the time don't have any problems with them being approved.

Cheers

Rachel

    I had two articles this week rejected with the same "general error" reason. The articles were discussing the benefits of Satellite TV for PC.

    Here is the response back from EA.

    If your article covers any of these subjects, that might be the reason.

    P.S. Kind of a bummer. I had a handful of other articles to submit on the same subject.

        Just consider submitting them to some of the lesser article directories. The exposure will not be as good, but at least they will not go to waste. Or you could write a few more and sell them as a PLR bundle.

          They are human editors and they make mistakes sometimes. Once I had an article that was rejected, and they didn't give a reason why and told me to contact them. I was worried and checked the TOS again and couldn't find anything wrong with my article. I contacted them and they seemed equally confused. They said it was just a mistake and it should have been accepted. They apologized and immediately accepted the article. This doesn't seem to happen too often though.

                There are some subjects that EZA does consider to be a bit to controversial or taboo to write on - it appears that satellite TV for PCs is one of those subjects. I can't recall if I saw a list on their site that outlined what they would and wouldn't accept, but I'll double check.

                You can always submit them to different directories or use them to answer questions on Yahoo Answers or even create a review site of your own and use them there.

                Buy that software and you'll find out what the fuss is all about. 90% of that sales letter is a blatant lie, false promises. The illegal part is: the software doesn't work, has nothing to do with satellites and people can't use it to watch programs advertised on the sales page.

    I have over 30 articles accepted, and I just now got this "general error" on a newly submitted article. I can't see any reason why it wouldn't be accepted, and I had to contact them to find out because they did not provide a reason.

    I'm still waiting for a response from them (over 24 hours), and I'm curious to find out what the issue is. Roughly how long does it take to get a response?

      For what it's worth, and I'm not complaining about it, I just had an article
      rejected for the oddest reason simply because I usually can figure it out. In
      this case...I can't.

      The article is essentially about "who do you listen to as a marketer?"

      The neighborhood guru or your prospects?

      The guru, having the marketing smarts to direct you to means of promotion
      that will probably work

      OR

      The actual prospect who is the one you have to ultimately please.

      I thought it was a well thought out article and certainly an interesting
      read. No guru names or products were mentioned, no sales pitch, nothing
      controversial and yet, rejected for that "general reason."

      I am really curious at to what caused the rejection.

      Could it be because I used the word guru?

      I have to admit, this one has me puzzled as all heck.

      When I find out the reason, I'll report it here so others will know what they
      can and can't write about.

      ** EDIT ** One other thing. I just looked at my old emails and I had an
      article rejected in November for no reason. Penny, the managing editor
      got back to me and said, "Sorry, it was rejected in error. I will take this
      up with the editors."

      Point is, sometimes, people make mistakes. If they have a lot of new
      editors, this could be the reason.

        Very true, Steven. Afterall, we are all human, and humans are prone to make mistakes.

        When you said about them maybe not liking the word "guru," it reminded me of a word that EZA wouldn't let me put in the Title of one of my articles.

        One of my articles was going to be about how to avoid scams on the internet, and I had the word "scam" in the title. Well, apparently they don't allow that anymore, so I had to change it a bit.

          Yes they did retract the wording a day or two after.

          The problem I had was it seemed to be a lot of double-talk.

          What is a professional company doing anyway making the decision to word a headline like that, thinking it won't offend the majority of the base of its users?

          Who's proofreading here? Who's editing the ones who are editing and rejecting your articles.

          It is my opinion that they meant exactly what they wrote, but they retracted once they realized what they did.

          I think CDarklock hit the nail on the head -- that's what EZA wants -- not affiliate marketers doing article marketing per se.

    Chris did say this on his FaceBook page today. It may give some insight:

    Our Editors know English much better than they are at making the right article accept/reject decisions (which takes a year+ to really master)... and that's why we have a 2nd QC Editor who proofs the 1st Editors decision. Eliminates errors and much egg-on-face.

    I've just had an article rejected for a general error. I'm emailing them to find out why.

    It was actually an article based on a thread here about guaranteed traffic. I've got it published on GoArticles, and Articlesbase. If EZA doesn't want it, that's fine. I just want to know the reason why.

    This is a bit of a complaint on EZA, and I've had to stop using them temporarily to maintain my sanity. I'm sure some of you can relate somewhat.

    I've actually had articles rejected from them where the reason they gave was completely bogus. The infraction they cited me for did not exist.

    I hardly ever get my articles rejected, except of course when I am about ready to be up for consideration to the next level of membership. And, I don't write BS articles -- my articles are written from scratch and are in excess of 400 words.

    They have a tendency to change the rules as they go, and they say that in their TOS -- what's even worse, is the fact that they do not tell you.

    I could site numerous examples, but the point is that I have taken a vacation from EZA for a while. My niches are not controversial, my articles are in my opinion, better than most, and yet, they are still rejected.

    A few months ago I submitted 25 articles to them only to have them all rejected for what they deemed as being overly promotional. I resubmitted them without changes. 5 were accepted but 20 were rejected again.

    I just figure if they want to play this way, that's fine -- I'll just help out their competitors, which in some cases rate better in Google than EZA.

    EZA is not the holy grail; there are other great article directories which can give you the same, and sometimes better, results on the first page of google.

    After taking those 20 other articles and submitting them to one of their competitors, they rank higher than the 5 that are on ezine.

    And now, they want to consider keeping you from editing articles after they are published?

    I'll let them settle their dust, and deal with others until then.

    Naturally, spammers and spinners ruined EZA for a bit, and EZA DOES have a legit gripe, but the nit-picking, in my opinion is going too far for me to handle.

    My nerves are bad anyway -- I don't need my blood pressure raised any more than it already is.

    What is good one day on EZA may not be good the next, and that has happened on occasions that are too numerous to mention.

    What I find funny is while they are no longer accepting EZA on Satellite TV for PC as someone mentioned earlier, they are not taking the old ones down, and still collecting Adsense on these articles -- whether they are sure of copyright infringement or not. The issue seems a bit weird to me.

    I'll just go to their closest competitors, as they seem to work just fine for me.

    Okay, people, let's just lay this out.

    What do EZA want?

    Do they want to give you free publicity? No.

    Do they want to give you a free backlink? No.

    Do they want to give you a big number of articles published? No.

    They want to connect writers to publishers online.

    They want articles that publishers want, so the publishers keep coming back for more. If the publishers can't find good articles because they're stuck wading through a bunch of self-promotional crap, EZA suffers.

    If you write good articles that publishers want to print on their own sites, EZA will love you. But if you write self-promotional crap that follows all the EZA guidelines, that doesn't mean you're helping. There's a lot of room for you to be a worthless boil on the arse of the community and still not break any rules. Concentrate on delivering value, not pumping up your numbers or raising your CTR from EZA itself.

      Well said.

      It all comes down to writing high quality content and not regurgitated crap that everyone has seen ten times over. They emphasize on "Raising the bar" with your articles. This means you need to stand out and deliver top quality content.

      Actually, they want Adsense revenue. They get no money from other people publishing content on EZA. They get money from Adsense.

      "Valuable" content is also a subjective measurement. It depends on the person reading. Someone looking for ways to get their ex back might find those articles valuable, but others might not. See what I mean?

      The only place we are allowed to self promote is in our resource box. The article is the "give" and the resource box is the "take." If I can't promote myself at all, then why should I be giving away my content to EZA, or to anyone else for free? I run a business, not a charity.

          Because if you write a high quality, informative article of real value to people, 50 other web sites will re-publish it, and you'll get some highly targeted traffic from all of them. And you'll have absolutely no problem promoting yourself and/or what you're selling much more efficiently and productively at that later stage.
          I'm not advocating that articles should be mini-sales pages. My point was that however you look at it, you write to get exposure, either when someone reads the article in the directory, or at some later point when it is published elsewhere a number of times. Why have a resource box at all if you are not looking at getting exposure and possibly making a profit from your work?

          Also, please define for me what is "real value?" My other point was that this is a subjective measure that varies from person to person. For example, I find no use for all of the articles about "getting your ex back." However, someone who is interested in that niche might well find them useful so long as there is usable advice in there. Who am I to judge?


          Rather a short-term view, in my opinion. People who are doing badly with article directories are not using them for the purpose for which they're intended.
          Please don't assume I am doing badly with article directories. I have ONE article that has been rejected based on a "general error" about which I am seeking clarification and I am standing by my work. If it was rejected based on subject matter, or something else that I can't fix or argue against, I'll delete it and move on to submit my next article.

That's one of the things I'm using article directories for.
              Fair enough. I still think that "quality" is in the eye of the beholder, apart from obviously poorly conceived articles that are written badly, or are machine generated. I think we can all agree those are crap.

              I also still maintain that the end goal for any of us is to make money, and there is nothing wrong with that.

                Actually, I think pretty much everyone has some plan for what they're going to DO with that money. The money isn't the end goal. It's just the blocking issue that keeps us from getting where we're really trying to go.

          To give an idea of the scale of the problem, here is a quote from Christopher Knight in the blog post mentioned earlier. It refers to submissions at EA:

          10,000 article submissions a week are deflected before we even seem them; 10,000 more are human deflected each week.
          His software is getting better at detecting thin and derivative articles and I, for one, applaud that.

          I republish a lot of articles on numerous blogs where I try to maintain a standard of quality that is useful and helpful to the reader. As a result, I waste time wading through a lot of vapid, self-promoting articles that (in my opinion) aren't worth the trouble of reading. If I don't like an article, I'm not going to inflict it on my readers.

          So often I see articles that are skillfully designed to attract viewers' attention and to gain a click on the links - however, they fail to deliver what is promised in the title. Of course, the link has to be clicked to get the real material but the content of the article is waffle that offers little useful information.

          I have no quarrel with those who have mastered the art of getting a good CTR, provided the article also delivers something of value.

      What do EZA want?

      Do they want to give you free publicity? No.

      Do they want to give you a free backlink? No.

      Do they want to give you a big number of articles published? No.

      They want to connect writers to publishers online.

      They want articles that publishers want, so the publishers keep coming back for more. If the publishers can't find good articles because they're stuck wading through a bunch of self-promotional crap, EZA suffers.

      If you write good articles that publishers want to print on their own sites, EZA will love you. But if you write self-promotional crap that follows all the EZA guidelines, that doesn't mean you're helping. There's a lot of room for you to be a worthless boil on the arse of the community and still not break any rules. Concentrate on delivering value, not pumping up your numbers or raising your CTR from EZA itself.

      I could not have said this any better.

      Folks, know why my articles not only get approved but get plastered all
      over the Internet? (Go look up my name at Google if you don't believe me)

      It's because I write good stuff.

      I write on topics that people want to know about and I provide them
      with info that can help them.

      If you're not doing that, then IMO, you're nothing but an article marketing
      pimp.

    Hey, watch this. I'm drunk as hell... way over the legal limit to drive... but I'll limit to EZA. Seriously, CDarklock between now and whenever. I'm going to start now. Suggest a niche in case I have trouble. I'll bet I selected I get accepted. I'm going to microwave some Hot Pockets first, then refresh this page and first writing.

    EDIT: Man, I was a lot more drunk than I thought.

    I too have had articles declined lately.
    If your articles appear too similar to your older work, this may be the reason.
    Just completely change it up, make sure your article provides value, and try, try again.

      I had an article disapproved after I edited a broken link. They never gave me a reason. I finally just deleted the article.
