Trying to figure out which one to stick with. Which one is faster in approving articles? Which one ranks faster?

  • Hi Nicholas,

    You really aught to post on both.

    As Dan Kennedy famously said: "The worst number in business is #1".

    In other words, don't put all your eggs in one basket. So ...
    • Always have more than one source of traffic (preferably, several).
    • Always have more than one payment processor (CB and PP).
    • Always have your domain registered somewhere other than your web host.
    Warmest regards,

    Paul

    They're totally different sorts of sites, for totally different purposes, Nicolas.

    The only purpose of putting an article into EZA is for other Webmasters and ezine publishers to re-publish it. EZA's own backlinks are worthless, and for all the reasons explained in this post no article marketer would want potential customer traffic to their site via an article directory.

    It doesn't matter. If you put an article in EZA, you'd hardly want that copy to rank! And Squidoo's backlinks are all no-follow, anyway.

    Apologies for the peremptory tone, but your question here really doesn't make an awful lot of sense.

    Bottom line: it won't help you to try to use an article directory for something other than its intended purpose (because it has no other benefits to offer you), and it won't help you much to use Squidoo for its no-follow backlinks (though I suppose you might get some "direct traffic" from it).

    This thread may help you: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5068872

    Whatever you do, don't submit "unique" (that means "previously unpublished") content to an article directory - that would just be helping the article directory out at the expense of your own business. Whatever you submit to an article directory needs to be published and indexed on your own site first.

    I have run both before and at this point have had problems with both (since you do not own the site) I would prefer and recommend Squidoo over EZA because they approve faster and the page looks more professional.

    Now squidoo has recently made a lot of changes so you must create an amazing squidoo lens to have a chance to rank and keep it on there.

    Like others said just do not keep all your eggs in one basket. My last marketing venture did and my several hundred dollars a month turned into 0 overnight.

    I'd use both personally. What you can do for example is post an article on squidu, then post another article on eza and link it back to your squidu article. Eza is really good for making link wheels or pyramids.

    EZA really wont get you alot of traffic these days. For website owners to come and get your article from EZA and publish on their site (with your info intact) is an excellent reason to use it for. I dont use Squidoo... and dont plan to either.
