    I guess you mean can you send your unique article to many article directories?

    You can. Just that I recommend you to send the article to ezine articles for approval 1st.
    Subsequently, you can send to the rest.

    I have did my research on article submission.
    You just need to send to ezine articles..
    It is sending me 90+% of the article marketing traffic..
    So these days, I only send to ezine articles and
    Publish the article in my blog only.

      I don't think that's such a good idea... using the same content for posting will only do nothing but hurt your rankings. Reason being is that, if SE check two exact contents they will interpret it as spam and there for does not increase your site's PR.

    What is the purpose of the article. If it's linking back to your site doing that won't do you much good.

    The short answer is that's it's better to write and submit an original article to each article site.

    The same question was asked and answered here:

    Hi
    Have you had a look at submityourarticle.com. This site submits your articles to 100's of article sites.

    Only downside is you have to pay for it so if you're just starting out then you might just want to use ezine articles and go articles for now until you start making some money

    Please acknowledge two simple realities:

    1. The basis of article marketing has nothing to do with achieving (worthless) backlinks from article directories.

    2. The only real benefit from submitting articles to directories is the potential to have your article syndicated, attracting targeted traffic to your website.

    In other words, "spinning" your article would be a complete waste of time. Write one quality article, submit it to Ezine, and hope that it gets syndicated. Anything else is moot.

    Leave this article directory stuff and find a guest blog in your niche and publish it there. As you will get maximum exposure {it will come on homepage}, atleast 2 backlinks and a lot of more back links via comments. Thus, doing guest post is a win-win situation.

      While guest posts do provide value, they pale in comparison to what a successful syndicated article may achieve for you. Offering blanket advice to simply "leave this article directory stuff" is not a sensible suggestion to anyone capable of writing a potentially syndicated article.

        I'll try to resolve the confusion and explain it clearly ...

        I'm afraid not - this is really completely wrong, Sandy. That would be a dreadfully inappropriate use of unique content and would severely and entirely unnecessarily restrict the benefits you can get from it. It would make no sense at all to submit unique content to any article directory, for all the reasons explained at such length and in such detail throughout this thread: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...marketing.html

        Please excuse my mentioning that the exact thread to which you yourself have linked, above, also actually contains some fairly detailed explanations of why what you're advising here is so deeply mistaken!

        That simply isn't true.

        You said that almost as you believe one would actually benefit from that, Kevin? It isn't so. It's far more likely to do harm than good. That has nothing to do with article marketing at all - it's simply a hangover from article directory marketing, and is based on exactly the same fundamental misunderstandings as that was.

          I can't understand why you said that Alexa.

          In the thread I linked to which asked:

          "Can I submit the same article to multiple directories?"

          You replied:

          "Yes, you can. And they'll publish it (if it complies with their terms of service in other respects). It isn't "duplicate content". It's "syndicated content".

          Is this a good practice?

          Not really, no."

          That is what I was saying. It was the short answer. I agree that it is not the best use of original articles.

            People who understand how article directories work, and people aware of Google's Penguin update, tend to be the ones who care, I think. But when people are submitting to multiple article directories "for backlinks" it isn't too easy to know whether they really care, because their thoughts and plans are so misguided, and so out of date, that it's hard to judge.

            Article marketing fundamentally isn't about backlinks.

Quite rightly, obviously: all the large and increasing numbers of people here successfully making our livings from article syndication say that, too. You tend to talk as if we're all saying the exact opposite, but that's just because you like, for some reason, to decry and denigrate the business model with which so many people here have become successful.

            The irony is that on the subject of multiple article-directory submission, we agree entirely.

            I do benefit greatly (as many others here do) by eventually submitting a copy of all my syndicated articles to Ezine Articles, but the additional syndication achieved from that is, of course, only passive syndication: it's slower, more variable and less reliable than true article syndication, which is precisely why I've always used the word "afterthought" here, to describe that aspect of article marketing.

            I said it because you said "it's better to write and submit an original article to each article site", and that's completely wrong, Sandy. It isn't better to do that: it's much, much worse. The thread to which you yourself linked explains in some detail why it's completely wrong. Sorry, but it just makes no sense at all to submit unique content to an article directory: that's based only on a misunderstanding of how article directories work.

    And like some other pointed out, some directories will not accept duplicate content, I'd say go with different unique articles.

      This isn't right at all, Frederik. It has nothing to do with duplicate content: that's syndicated content, not duplicate content. The differences between the two are briefly explained in this post and this little article.

      Please excuse the observation that it really isn't helpful to anyone to offer advice on "avoiding duplicate content" without yourself knowing what duplicate content is!

        Thanks for pointing it out Alexa, but is that your opinion? Or is there an online dictionary that define this?

        Is there one way to define this or do people just have different understandings of duplicate content?

            What he explains is that the LINKS gained from article marketing are not worth very much. Article syndication is not about link building. It aims to put your content in the hands of publisher with readers who would value it. You are not after links or SEO benefits or rankings so the whole process has nothing to do with google.

              This. Exactly.

              Some people "just get it"; others, it seems, "just don't".

              Some will even - as we've occasionally seen before - quote Matt Cutts explaining that multiple article directory backlinks are of no value (something which of course all the successful article marketers here say very repeatedly and consistently, in all the threads like this one and this one and this one and 100 others) and try to imply that it's somehow some sort of "evidence" that article syndication itself "doesn't work". It's ludicrous, of course.

              More importantly for the forum, it's also potentially pretty destructive because - especially if it's left uncorrected - some people with very little experience may not quite see it for the nonsense it actually is, and may actually believe that Matt Cutts is telling them that article marketing doesn't work, when in fact he's telling them (just as all the article marketers, here, are also telling them) that article directory marketing doesn't work.

          The people who define it correctly (for these and all related purposes) are Google. Their definition is - effectively - the one that matters.

          They do go to some lengths to clarify the distinction between the two.

          If you take a look at the links in my post above, you'll find some links to places where they've explained it.

          What Cutts is talking about in the video above (so often posted here), I think is more confusing than clarifying, for many reasons, including the fact that in it Cutts unfortunately uses the phrase "article marketing" to refer to "article directory marketing". The point he makes about multiple article submissions is of course a good and valid one, and the same one made in a couple of the other threads to which I've linked above.

          The reality is that very many people who use article directories are trying to use them for purposes and with objectives that they can't possibly fulfil (e.g. the directories' own traffic, and own backlinks).

          What isn't clarified so much, in the video clip above, is that Google likes and respects syndicated content (far from "penalizing" it!). The reasons multiple directory submissions aren't a great idea are that (a) they're based on a misunderstanding of the functions and purposes of article directories, and (b) they have no benefits, and (c) in the case of mass directory backlinks the Penguin Update may cause problems - not the fact that they're syndicated content, at all.

            http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5273700
            Why do you always post these long, drawn out explanations, that Cutts clearly explains in a little over 2 minutes?

            Could it be you have a serious vested interest in article marketing? Hmm, no, that possibly can't be it!

            Alexa the word for lamp in multiple languages:

            lamp-English
            lampe-German
            lámpara-Spanish
            λυχνία-Greek
            lampada-Itallian

            what's the point? Well no matter what language you use, they all represent the same object. You can use whatever term you want but the fact remains it's the object with a bulb in it that plugs into the wall and you switch on to get light.

            So whether you choose to call it "article syndication" or "article marketing" means F&*( all, because to Google as Matt Cutts CLEARLY explained, they're one in the same and he HIGHLY doesn't recommend it.

            Gee, wonder who I'd listen to, a Google insider or someone with a vested interest in article marketing or even "article syndication"

            I know for me, who I'd listen to.

            The rest is up to whoever reads this post and your posts to decide for themselves.

              Did you read what I wrote above, again, feel free to make your own choice, but watch the vid again and see very clearly what Cutts says about the "low quality sites that are likely to syndicate your content."

              As a wise man once said: "repeat something often enough and people will believe it to be true."

              Alexa has repeated this nonsense so often, that a lot of people fell under her spell and believe it to be true.

                With apologies for sounding pendantic regarding semantics, the terms "article marketing" and "article syndication" involves much more than just submitting content to article directories for backlinks. Since the pre-Panda days of internet marketing, the connotation of these concepts actually began their slow demise into the current state of apparent impotence.

                The commonly associated concepts of article marketing and article syndication have devolved into a meaningless model which is no longer considered good writing, nor seems to be articles, syndication or even marketing. Google's updates and algorithm changes essentially wiped out this maligned and flawed marketing model. Such fundamental misunderstandings of article writing, proactive syndication, and integrated marketing components are the primary causes for failure.

                In its fullest meaning, "article marketing" is a proven practice of quality writing for quality publications which targets quality prospects. A network of publications where these articles appear, or are syndicated, can be a singular source of virtually unlimited and highly convertible traffic. Obtaining syndication partners as well as converting prospects requires a marketing process. Those who understand the leveraging power of article syndication and its associated marketing components (ie true article marketing) are making fortunes. And backlinks for SEO are merely its by-products.

                  The commonly associated concepts of article marketing and article syndication have devolved into a meaningless model which is no longer considered good writing, nor seems to be articles, syndication or even marketing. Google's updates and algorithm changes essentially wiped out this maligned and flawed marketing model. Such fundamental misunderstandings of article writing, proactive syndication, and integrated marketing components are the primary causes for failure.

                  In its fullest meaning, "article marketing" is a proven practice of quality writing for quality publications which targets quality prospects. A network of publications where these articles appear, or are syndicated, can be a singular source of virtually unlimited and highly convertible traffic. Obtaining syndication partners as well as converting prospects requires a marketing process. Those who understand the leveraging power of article syndication and its associated marketing components (ie true article marketing) are making fortunes. And backlinks for SEO are merely its by-products.

                    Yup, it's really a tough choice. It may help to realize, however, that article syndication has been a proven marketing model for much longer than Matt Cutts or even Google have been around. Even in the video, you will find that Cutts is referring to low quality syndication (irrelevant context), as has already been explained ad nauseum. Google's very public announcements and ongoing algorithm updates show a growing intolerance for illiterate, keyword-stuffed articles written simply for search engine optimization purposes. :rolleyes:

                        If you really consider that post comparable to writing a thesis, then you really should never attempt article marketing.

                                Ancient history and civilization just happen to be among my favorite niches. People like Jason might say that Article Syndication, Sanskrit and perhaps even the cuneiform tablet writing system (which was in use for more than 24 centuries before Google) is now dead. However, there are marketers still making a killing in every one of these.

                            He is talking about article marketing as an SEO strategy. Of course that's on the decline, it has been for many years.

                            All Cutts talks about is low quality websites slapping low quality articles on their website. He doesn't talk about TRUE article marketing where YOU create great content and YOU market that content to websites/ezines etc that are active and have a loyal following.

                            Who cares about any sort of link benefit from articles (as a primary concern)... last I checked, links don't have eyes (or a brain) and are unable to read or purchase products.

                            I'm here to get targeted eyeballs back to my website so I can capture their information and have my own 'on-demand' traffic source.

                            Screw Google.

            If you take a look at the links in my post above, you'll find some links to places where they've explained it.

            What Cutts is talking about in the video above (so often posted here), I think is more confusing than clarifying, for many reasons, including the fact that in it Cutts unfortunately uses the phrase "article marketing" to refer to "article directory marketing". The point he makes about multiple article submissions is of course a good and valid one, and the same one made in a couple of the other threads to which I've linked above.

            The reality is that very many people who use article directories are trying to use them for purposes and with objectives that they can't possibly fulfil (e.g. the directories' own traffic, and own backlinks).

            What isn't clarified so much, in the video clip above, is that Google likes and respects syndicated content (far from "penalizing" it!). The reasons multiple directory submissions aren't a great idea are that (a) they're based on a misunderstanding of the functions and purposes of article directories, and (b) they have no benefits, and (c) in the case of mass directory backlinks the Penguin Update may cause problems - not the fact that they're syndicated content, at all.

            I was snooping around looking for more info on this topic since I have received this question many times, "Can I publish 1 article to more than 1 place". This is one of the best explanations I have heard. AWESOME answer.

            To add my own 2c:
            I published articles to multiple avenues and finally had MUCH better success writing one unique blog, posting as one live piece to my blog, and STOPPING there. My blogs are getting picked up by interested readers and ranking naturally. Anything on Ezine, Hubpages, etc. was 100% unique from my written blog piece.

            Also......

            Cutts is confusing on so many levels. I have clients who will do nothing but follow him like sheep...and then some who think he's the poster child of Google. Who really is this guy?

    I wouldn't send it to any article directory at all, point blank, period. Matt Cutts himself says article directories are now "bad links"


    He brings up using social media with your content, do that instead.

    Oh, yeah, and before you think about who has your best interest at heart, look in sig files and understand the posts and the "man behind the curtain" of those posts. Just some free advice from me to you.

    Its okay. Some of them will probably not get indexed and will not provide you with the backlink that you originally wanted but who cares? You can be sure that at least one of the sites will be indexed and provide you with the link and most often it is the site with the highest authority (which is only to your benefit). But most of the time you will also find that some of the other sites will be indexed as well and that your article will actually appear in several places at the same time and provide you with several backlinks.

    Whenever you have a unique and genuinely useful article, your own website or blog should be the top priority.

    To help build traffic and expand your reach, guest posts should be the second place to consider when you write some unique content.

    As for article marketing, you should forget about the traditional method shown in thousands of outdated eBooks. Forget about the "many article websites". Submitting to lots of directories won't get you any significant results, and could potentially harm your site in the long-term.

    Ezinearticles is the only one worth considering, but only as a small part of your overall marketing strategy.

    Start using Google+ and focus on improving your author rank. That is an effective strategy that will get you results, unlike article marketing.

    Respectfully, Sudeep, this is entirely the wrong approach.

    As explained so repeatedly above, for all the reasons explained in this post, no article marketer wants to get his potential customer traffic coming to his site from an article directory (we all lose most of that traffic, and all of it's traffic which we could easily have arranged to have coming directly to our own sites in the first place).

    Trying to use article directories to get traffic is one of the mistakes to avoid. As you can see from the discussion above, that isn't their purpose at all, and now that that's become impossible to do effectively, it's actually become easier, more productive and more profitable to use article directories for their intended purpose.

    An article directory is simply a stepping-stone to re-publication in places that do have the targeted traffic you want, not a source of that traffic in its own right.

      You should always post you article to your site first to get it indexed first. If you post it to an articles sire first it may get indexed before it does on your site.

      1st post to site.
      2 have supper then post to article site or wait 24-48 hrs

      Google indexing is indexing all the time (25/7), it does not stop for lunch. That why 25hrs.

      All it "helps" with, John, is incurring an SEO penalty from Google. Those are mass backlinks on non-context-relevant sites of exactly the kind that the Penguin update was specifically designed to penalize.

      Those backlinks have no value, because they're on sites not relevant to your own. This was true even as long ago as 2010, when SEO textbook writers were explaining why, in linkjuice terms, something between 50,000 and 100,000 of those "backlinks" were equivalent to one backlink from a quality, relevant site. And that was even before all the 2011/12 Panda updates decimated the SEO potential of article directories, and the Penguin update started penalizing the sites linked to. It's completely futile, and far more likely to damage your business than to help it.
