    What is the use of submitting articles to low quality directories?

    As Google places higher and higher value on the quality of the content, this tactic is not as effective, and can even harm a website’s ranking if overdone.

    For the small business website owner, this should come as good news. Instead of generating 50 articles with subpar content submitted to crappy directories, website owners can now focus on creating fewer high-quality articles or incoming links.

    Focus on getting high-quality links from high-quality websites.

    Target only high quality directories that look good in the eyes of google such as Ezine, Go Articles, ArticlesBase, Buzzle and the like...

    i dont think its a good idea to submit same article on multiple article directory. first of all create a unique article then submit it to popular article directories sites which generates traffic and backlink. Ezine, hubpages, squidoo can helps you to get visitors

    Only choose high pr directories to submit your articles. Check page rank on that directory before submitting. You can also promote your written articles or have social bookmarking for more visits. It's like making backlink to your backlinks.

    If you are talking about blasting with AMR, just blasting your site is pretty useless these days. A dripped blast may have some small effect on rankings, but in my 4 or 5 months of using AMR I have mixed feelings. Not to say it isn't still good for something.

      AMR is alright, the no. 1 problem is the indexing of the LiveLinks. I don't blast with it, 20-25 posts per 12 hrs is definitely not blasting. I got my hands on way to do a massive 200 article blast with another software that I got my hands on, and due to the fact that my site is up for a month only, I am unsure whether it is too soon for something of the sort.

        Why is it pretty useless? I thought one of the main powers of AMR was for your article to get syndicated so they appear on other sites so you get backlinks from other sites besides the directories AMR submitted to.

        Some people say AMR is very powerful and some say it has no effect on their rankings at all. That suggests that the people who say its has no effect are not doing something right.

        There is no point doing 20-25 posts per 12 hrs because the links don't get indexed instantly anyway.

        If you submit an article to 1000 directories all at once, Google doesn't see this as 1000 links in one day as many directories take weeks to approve and even the directories that do approve, some of the links don't get indexed at all.

          Yes, I am very much aware of that. Furthermore, they don't get approved at the same time, meaning it really does look natural in the end. I've been using this approach on my newest website and I got Page 1 within a week and a half (Starting pages were between page 3 to page 28). I think natural paced backlinking matters more than ever, but I now want to jump to Rank #1 - #3 so I'm wondering how risky it would be to do a few blasts to .edu and .gov sites.

            Did you create an RSS feed out of your live links? Do you have any strategy such as pinging the RSS feed every so often?

            I only pinged the RSS feed once, but i've heard of services which ping the feed regularly.

    That's the beauty of it - I don't do any of those things on this one. It started out as a test of some new things I had in mind, and worked out brilliantly. I'm ranking several keywords at the same time without bothering to RSS, ping or anything.

    I think the main reason why it works so well is that I am gradually adding content to it, even though I have it for weeks before it goes live.

    Now, I don't really have any issues, I just wanted to know your opinion on how harmful blasts can be, or how and when should they be done
