What is ArticlesBase?

Articlesbase is a comparatively new article directory but already contains thousands of articles with variety of authors. People are amazed with this new sites SEO Rankings of the articles and the commercial design and the easy navigation process. So, here is a doubt in people's mind thinking that it has earned the capability to suppress our old friend ezinearticles or not.

I made a head to head comparison and in this tough controversy, I atlast found both wins in ther individual features. But the fact is that, you will need to learn about their individual features and find out which is for you.

What is @ezineArticles?

Yea, is also an Article Directory. But it is much more amount of articles. Anyway quantity doesn't matter - rather we will go for quality, features and other facilities; then find out which can solve our problems in online PageRank and popularity. Let's find out which is for you-


The pros and cons of Articlesbase

In this capsule I will discuss about the good sides and bad sides in this article directory website. So, I start with the good sides.

Pros of

  1. Easy navigation
  2. Easy to write
  3. The articles rank higher in long term process
  4. You can connect using your Facebook Account
  5. You can have an opportunity to write more about what you do and your expert areas in the Author Bio box in each and every box in the individual articles!
  6. They take less time for approving your article

These are the most common good sides of Articlesbase. Look for the bad side below.

The cons of Articlesbase

  • It doesn't give a dofollow link back to your site, so if you think submitting massive articles there is going to increase your blogs' pagerank, then you're simply mistaken!

The Pros and Cons of EzineArticles

The ezineArticles was always considered as the #1 Article Directory before Articlesbase was on the view. Anyway, even now most of the people now use this site too. Now, go below to see my tests I have done on

The Pros of EzineArticles

  1. Give doFollow links to your blog
  2. Firstly, it works well in the search engines but in the long run Articlesbase wins in SEO.
  3. It can give you instant popularity
  4. Your mistakes in the articles are corrected very carefully
  5. They send you weekly writing tips and article templates
  6. When your name is searched on Google, your profile there ranks good and increase your credibility by writing 'expert author'
  7. Their site has more traffic
  8. You will get a huge traffic from their own home page
  9. When you upgrade to the pro version, then they will approve your articles quickly and you can publish in a scheduled way
  10. It can help you choosing the perfect article title

The cons

  • Their site doesn't look so smart, so some of my friends dislike a bit!
  • In the free version they take more than a week to approve an article

So, my judgement

According to me, both wins. But I'm now liking HubPages more! Anyway, between Articlesbase and EzineArticles I'll use EzineArticles as the first choice because I need PageRank for my new blog here- Productive & Earning Hobbies
