Why Submit Blog Posts to 10 of the Top Article Directories?

Submit blog posts to the top 10 article directories
Writing for the web is great! Good writers are always in demand, because there are lots of websites that need to update and add fresh content for their own survival. Writing online can also get you some money. But more importantly, it builds your credibility and authority. Bloggers are no strangers to online content writing. So for them, it can be far more important and useful. Submitting your articles or blog posts to article directories can be a particularly good way of boosting your stats. It can bring many benefits for bloggers. Today, we'll take a look at the top 10 article directories where you can submit your articles or blog posts and benefit from them.

Why submit your articles?

Submitting articles has lots of benefits. First of all, you can get a backlink via your author box on that particular site. Most of these article directories have a 5+ PR. And if you know anything about blogging, you'll know how important a PR 5+ backlink is. A single high quality backlink is better than multiple low quality ones. It will help increase your own PageRank.

Besides PR, these submissions will also boost your traffic. These directories are frequently visited by millions of people in search of knowledge or articles to research upon. And with your articles, you can divert some of that traffic to your own website.

Another little benefit is, you can get rid of your old, or unnecessary blog posts. A lot of bloggers post on irrelevant stuff at the start just for the sake of something to write about. Many posts end up stalling as well, with no traffic coming to them. Such posts aren't any good to anybody. So deleting them, and submitting them on article directories instead can squeeze some use out of them.

Top 10 Article Directories

Here's a list of the top 10 article directories where you can submit old or new articles of yours and get some backlinks and traffic out of it.

  1. The Free Library - PR 7
  2. EzineArticles * - PR 6
  3. ArticlesBase * - PR 6
  4. GoArticles * - PR 5
  5. Article Dashboard - PR 5
  6. Article City - PR 5
  7. Article Alley * - PR 4
  8. Article Factory * - PR 4
  9. WryteStuff * - PR 4
  10. Internet Marketing News Watch - PR 3

You can submit one article to more than one directories above. However, the directories marked with a sterick (*) are listed under the SubmitYourAccount (SYA) Account Manager. This means, that articles submitted to these directories come under the same account manager. Hence, if you signed up for these directories with your SYA account, then you can not submit the same article to more than one of these websites. All the starred websites can be considered as a single article directory. You can, however, sign up without your SYA account, or with another account you might have. That way, you can submit your articles to more than one such directories.

You can sign up for any of these directories for free. It usually is an easy sign-up process. Once signed up, you are ready to start posting articles. Before you submit articles though, make sure your author profile is properly filled, and that it is linking to your website. Most sites give you an HTML box where you can directly add your link and anchor it to some text such as your name.

You can submit a single article to many directories. But keep in mind their copyrights law before submitting. Some directories won't let you post already published content, while others might not allow you to reproduce them. Be sure to check out their ToS before submitting anything.

We'd recommend you sign up for multiple article directories, at least 5. That way, you can be sure of scoring at least backlink to your website. And if more accept your article, well and good! The whole purpose of this exercise is to build quality backlinks, which should be on any blogger's priority list.

  2. I have a doubt. Don't they count as duplicates if we submit our posts to these directories. I mean is just like the sharing on FB. I always thought that on sites like Ezine we need to write unique content. If yes then how can an already published post be submitted there??

    Agree. That's also my doubt. Also, if you recommend this technique, why mybloggertricks didn't use this?

  6. Nic post buddy, Same doubt here. One more thing is, does the blog posts fetched in bloggers.com and blogcatalog can create any form of duplicate issue with our blog ???

    Blogger Tricks

  7. @Bhavesh Pamecha Buddy like I mentioned, different websites have different policies. While most don't allow content to be duplicated, some do. Or at least, they allow article spinning. You can always spin your articles and submit them to such websites. Again, read the website's ToS.

  8. @Manuel Garcia hmm, glad that you asked that. Well, link building isn't our number one priority at the moment, although we are considering it. We are currently focusing on providing content and services. Link building comes later. We are definitely going to do it though

  9. I have noticed that most of the users if found any of your article at this kind of site then they just read that stuff there problem is solved and they do not visit your website i am talking about the majority and you lose your huge number of visitors

  10. usefull article directories list..thatx for sharing it.

    Hack facebook password

  11. @blogging-heaven.com still, you do get a few visitors from these websites. Plus, you get a good quality backlink as well. Something is better than nothing, don't you think?

  12. I tried to test Article Dashboard, sign up was free but when wanted to submit article it wants to have me a premium membership just like other backlinks building sites on the internet :(

    I have not tested others but one thing I got cleared is that article submissions is not bad by looking at the rankings of the directory but definitely not on my priority list as most of them involves to have unique content and article spinning for me is considered as Spam and Mohammad and many here know how much I hate Spam :p

    My tip to bloggers is if you really want to submit to those articles go for quality and not quantity. You may just submit one or two high quality posts in a week or two or maybe even a month but the traffic and benefit you get by looking at their rankings can be enormous. But that is only possible if your post is a really helpful with quality in it and readers won't be able to control themselves to come to your blog :p No need to post some dozens of articles in a week.

  20. Qasim , you should add a warning that duplicating content online could affect your google page rank. When I started my website I had my blogposts show up on cookeatshare.com, foodbuzz.com, wellsphere.com and probably a couple more that I can no longer remember that accepted my RSS feed and re-published my posts.

    When trying to improve my page rank I kept seeing the empahsis google puts on ORIGINAL content not posted anywhere else.

    I went to each of these services and either removed my posts myself or contacted their IT team and asked them to remove them (at least three of them responded within 24 hours!!). To make certain that non one else re-posted my content I also added copy protection to the website and shortened my RSS feed to only show the introduction to the article.

    Those steps, and of course, following lots of other SEO tips from mybloggertricks.com got my website to the first page of google search results!

    At first I was apprehensive about removing all of the content syndication - but when I looked at the hard numbers I wasn't really getting that much traffic from them anyway so it was worth the risk to improve the visability of my website through search results.

    No more ambiguity about which website hosts the ORIGINAL content or penalty for spraying the same content multiple places online.



  21. @Laura @ Hip Pressure Cooking Hmm, thanks for sharing your experience. Maybe I didn't make myself very clear. What I basically mean is, you shouldn't submit your existing blog posts on these directories. You should either submit the old, off-topic ones that aren't getting views, or you can write some new ones. I never meant you should write new posts on your blog and then submit them on article directories as well. You are totally right. Duplicate content harms a website.

  28. Very nice information you have presented in front of all.Can you tell me one thing here as per google terms we have to submit the single content on to single article directory. either it is the case of articles or blogs . So as per your means submitting the single content in to different platforms is right or not as if we are submitting same content in to different places it is considered as duplicate. every body know we are submitting the same content in to different places for number of backlinks. But i think this is not the right way. Please put a a light on my query.
