Hi everybody, I want to know if anyone knows what year the first article directory got started. I hear it was around 2005-2006 bet that doesn't sound right. It seems to me that it would have been a lot earlier than that. I need the information for some research that I'm doing. Anybody know?

    EzineArticles is the most popular and was started in 1999 actually.

      There may have been earlier comparable article submission organizations, but the oldest ones of which I'm aware are the Associated Press (1845), Reuters (1851), and UPI (1907 - at one time the largest).

      Hope that helps.
