Have document hosting sites lost "power" like article sites?

4 replies
There used to be a lot of hype about uploading documents with your keyword links to document hosting sites.

I haven't heard much about it lately. Is it now less useful like EzineArticles is after the last Google algorithm update?

    EzineArticles is still useful. So are some other main ones such as GoArticles and ArticleBase. They're less useful than they used to be - such as when Ezine posts would relatively easily show up on the first page of Google. Now it takes some more work and dedication.

    I haven't heard much about that strategy lately either but I am sure it probably work when used accordingly.

    I thought they were kind of "reasonable to quite good" a couple of years ago.

    They definitely haven't improved.

    I haven't specifically monitored/tested them in any way, but my subjective impression is that their value to me has certainly deteriorated over the last couple of years. I still wouldn't call them "entirely useless for backlinks" in the way almost all article directories so clearly are.
