Hi all, I have just opened an account with Ezinearticles and am about to submit an article in an attempt to improve the SEO of my website. Can anyone help and let me know what other decent article submission sites there is out there.

Also I read on a recent thread on here that you should publish a blog post, wait for it to be listed by google, and then use that post on Ezinearticles. The terms and conditions on their site state that I shouldn't use blog posts, that the articles should be unique content.

So I was wondering what method people generally use when submitting articles?

ie, do people generally use duplicated blog posts, and get away with it? Or follow the guidelines in a strict manner, etc?

    This is incorrect, Dean.

    Ezine Articles welcomes and specifically invites its authors to submit to them as articles any previously published blog posts which comply with their editorial guidelines. It says so on their blog, and in their introductory email course on article marketing (you should sign up for that - it's quite good, albeit understandably written from their own perspective), and they even make available to their authors a special Wordpress plugin so that people can publish articles on their blogs and at the same time submit them to EZA for subsequent publication there.

    They want content submitted there to be unique to them (in other words, they won't themselves publish two copies of the same or substantially similar articles - rightly, because that would be "duplicate content" as opposed to "syndicated content": two entirely different things, of course, as explained here).

    Article directories don't require previously unpublished content.

    I have nearly 4 years'-worth of my articles published in EZA (under 8 different names!), and almost every single one of them had been (a) published and indexed on one of my own sites first and (b) syndicated to various other relevant niche websites and published there too, all before being submitted to EZA.

    It's all explained here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5068872

    I think this post from earlier today may also help you: http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...ml#post6808280

    I don't think its good to use the same post in your money site and other places. I just write high quality articles and publish them in my main site. Then spin them and use in article directories. But In Ezine I write my personal articles by my self.
    thanks

      As professional article marketers have tried to explain to you before, when you've made similar comments in other threads, that isn't so at all. This is actually a deeply flawed approach. What you're doing is giving Ezine Articles (and maybe even other article directories) initial indexation-rights to content not previously published. In the long run, that gives significant SEO disadvantages to your own site, compared with the alternative.

      When you have time to read through this thread, you'll find in it a whole succession of experienced, successful article marketers explaining at length and in detail all their shared reasons for not doing what you say you're doing: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...eza-first.html

      Spinning is absolute nonsense, devoid of benefits and based only a fundamental misunderstanding (in spite of all Google's lengths to clarify it) about the difference between duplicate content and syndicated content (explained here). Its only remaining advocates are those with a financial interest in the promotion of spinning software/services and the graduates of the Urban Myth School of Internet Marketing.

      Everyone who actually makes a living from article marketing (rather than from supplying spinning software or services) will tell you the same thing about this subject. For people open-minded enough to read them and learn something, these five items explain much more, at greater length and in greater detail.
      • this post explains the benefits of spinning
      • the first half (or so) of this thread contains a good discussion of what you can gain from spinning articles
      • the advice on this subject given by so many people throughout most of this thread has been really helpful to many people here
      • this little article is also a very useful and accurate explanation of the subject
      • this post, and its links, explain in detail the closely related subject of how article directories really work and why they exist

        There are a lot of free article directories available on the web where you can submit your article for seo of your website.

    Submitting to various article directory sites can be called article syndication.

  • Another question if anyone can help.

    Would you submit the same article to all these different article websites?

      I do not recommend submitting the same content to different sites. After the Google update, it is now risky to get duplicate content.

      Thus, the best way to do this is to spin your articles and then submit to article sites.

        By 'spin' do you mean to just juggle the words around a bit and submit it, so essentially it's the same article?

      So does that not contradict what Alexa said about using Blog posts on Ezine?

        It does. And it is incorrect. Ezinearticles does allow content that's appeared somewhere else. Aticlealley.com does not. But they do not mind if you publish it somewhere else after it appears on their site. Streetarticles.com, another kind of animal, does not publish pieces that have already been publishhed on another site. In addition, they will remove your piece if they find you've published it somewhere else after they published it on their site.

        I know the part about ezinearticles.com because once I wrote them an email about it and Christopher Knight replied that they have no problem with it. In addition, they have a plugin that made it real easy to publish post from your site on their site.

        You can download their plugin here: WordPress › EzineArticles WordPress Plugin « WordPress Plugins
