    I stumbled across articlesbase.com and wondered if anyone here publishes over there. Is is just for new articles are can we submit articles from HubPages? I know there are alot of writing sites out there but was wondering about this one.

    Hi Dorsi - I do - haven't written a new one in a while though. I usually do one article and submit it across the ezine articles range for backlinks. Don't quite know if it really works! I do feel EzineArticles is better though - I've had more of my articles copied from there onto blogs.

    I use articlesbase com as well, seen some good traffic on it when I first started and it's been pretty good ever since. It's pretty easy to use.

    My Interior trend predictions are up on there as well as here, they are of course re-written as we all know how much Google hates duplicate content!

    As it's free, you might as well give it a go, nothing to lose so to speak!

    Thanks WhoArtNow and Shallini. When you rewrite your articles how much do you change so you don't get a duplicate content penalty? I have some news articles that I wrote for the Examiner that would make good hubs if I made some changes.

      There is no simple formula - copyscape will tell you are unique enough - you get a feel for it after a while. Google ignores all those standard phrases that say nothing e.g. "from now on" "gorgeous attractive city" "politics of inclusions" so if you pay particular attention to the rest of the article and in particular change sub-titles you will pass. Notice what copyscape sees as a duplicate you will start to see the pattern after a while- basically cliches pass with flying colours LOL

    I usually stick with EzineArticles, but then I don't do the bum marketing thing.

    Ideally change each sentence and put it thru Copyscape (if you want a free plagiarism detector, 'Articlechecker' is good.) I have a site called the Art of Rewriting which makes it fairly easy to rewrite and to check whether the rewrite passes muster smile

    RKHenry - if you have a website, writing articles and putting them up on these sites will help you link back to your site.

    I used to submit articles to articlesbase as well to a bunch of other directories. But recently I discovered that articlesbase puts a NOFOLLOW attribute to external links. Well, it gives some traffic, but because of this attribute I stopped submitting there.

      I'm an article marketer and there are lots of article sites that place "nofollow" link attributes in the author's bio area. I don't submit to these sites either. Check out my Hub to learn how you can spot these sites easily. Hope this helps you. Kerry

      If you email them, they should remove the nofollow, they did for me.

    I'm a big ezine article fan and it does provide good traffic backlinks. Go Articles is not that bad either.

    I just started checking out articlesbase too and just wrote a few articles there and now I'm comparing the results against ezine.

    My articles had to be reviewed by a live editor, just like ezine, which is good a thing because I think search engines give reviewed contents more authority. Which is why ezine always ranks so well.

    The only thing I don't like is that I've been getting emails from a team member at articlesbase with information on how to make $7000 in one day and other nonsense by promoting products. Which sets off the alarm bells in my head.

    So I've got my fingers crossed, hoping that articlesbase performs as well as ezine.

    Articlesbase does not check articles submitted for plagiarism prior to allowing them to be seen by the world.

    I recently (thanks to the Copyright checker thing Hubpages just implemented a while back) discovered that some unscrupulous user of Articlesbase.com took, word for word, including my profile information, a dozen of my articles, posted them up, and consequently a trail of small blogs took the article and posted it themselves within the site's guidelines.

    I literally had to fight tooth and nail to have the articles removed and the user banned.  It was terrible.

    Travelmonkey is right, they will remove the nofollow if you ask.  I find articlesbase is the second best directory, after ezines, as far as getting the article itself to rank, and for referral traffic.  In addition, they apparently have some automated feeds for some topics, because if I link to one of my blogs, I get pingbacks where the article has been published several times within a day.

    Ezine Articles is good, Go Articles is good, Buzzle is good, and Articles Base is OK too.
