How to know if your article submission pages are reputable

A brief overview

You have just researched your topic and edited your material and now you are ready to submit that one out of the last ten articles that you feel will make a great impact with your audience. The only problem is that you really do not know where you should submit the article because of so many submission sites on the web.

What do you do? and how do you know if a site is reputable or not. This hub will explain some steps to take that will ensure that you are not taken advantage of because lets face it, we must help one another. I really believe that if you do good for others, the same good treatment will come back. Personally I love to read about the success of other Hubber's because it gives me hope that the same thing can happen for me.

Now back to finding reputable sites. The first thing that one must find out is if the sites you are going to submit your articles to are well known on the web or are they just fly by night sites that are there to rip you off. You can do this by going to Google and finding out whether or not these site are indexed by them, if they are not chances are your articles will not be seen. Here is something that you can also do right at this moment to put your mind at ease.

Go to Alexa.com and type in the website URL to see where the website ranks on the web. Alexa ranks millions of websites and you should know right away if the websites rank or not. If the site does not rank at all you should be very careful about submitting to that site.Also make sure that the submission site handles a targeted campaign with a targeted audience in mind such as people who may be interested in art, photography, health, writing, domestic and family, etc.

For a site to just use a shotgun approach may be a waste of time and money.Another important bit of information to look for is if the submission sites submit the articles by hand or do they use software to accomplish this task? The problem with software submission is that everything from a to z gets submitted no matter how badly written. It is always good to have a second opinion and to have someone who is competent to edit your article.

Is your article search engine friendly?

Is your article search engine friendly? most reputable submission service companies will not use software to edit your article , but will do it by hand. Another added service that they will provide is to make sure that your article is also search engine friendly.

Services that refuse to do these things should be avoided. These reputable companies want your articles to show up on Google and the proof is in the pudding. If one can see first hand that the services are visibly working, this is just good business for both the service and the author with both coming out ahead.

A reputable service should in a nutshell do proofing, editing, consulting and optimizing with professional follow up. They should also submit to numerous sites which will take some time if all is done right.

What does this all mean? there is a right and wrong way to submit and if done right can bring traffic and money! I was doing some reading and research and found that one article that was marketed the right way produced thousands of dollars.

I know for everyone its not about the money, but everyone wants their writing to be seen and appreciated or the time time spent writing and submitting would just be a waste of time.

What is your main reason for writing?

Quality reliable information about articles. I've not started with articles yet, yet I'll have to (in due course) mainly because it's a wonderful source of both inbound links and targeted traffic.
