      Ezinearticles and goarticles are two of my favorites. I am trying to grow my list to about 10 directories I habitually can trust to not over police the articles, and provide a strong one way link. I see these are sorted by Alexa TR and not so much the PR or age of the domain. Do you feel the alexa ranking is more vital to deciding which at the top directories? I am assuming your answer would be yes.

      Hi Justin, It all depends weather you are using these directories to bring traffic to your site or SEO. I have ranked them using Alexa to give people a better idea what directories have the most traffic. Since you are trying to get backlinks for seo purposes, the list would be changed around a little.

      Many people believe pagerank is dead and isnt worth anything anymore. I personally think it is still alive and kicking but...

      I believe submitting 100 articles to a directory for backlinks and seo purposes is worth little more weight in Google than just one backlink from the same directory. Google only seem to be counting 1 or 2 backlinks from a domain these days to combat search engine link spam. The trick is to submit your article to as many different article directories as possible and have backlinks pointing for lots of different ip addresses.

      Justin 8 years ago

      Hi Aaron. Thanks for the response. Yea that sounds like a good perspective on it and I think you are right. From looking at siteexplorer though, at least backlinks reflected there do show sometimes multiple links from one article directory, but many times neither yahoo or google shows the links at all. I agree with you overall though because the more ip addresses, probably the better. Thanks again!

      Hi Aason,

      I am currently submitting articles to build back links for my new site (about 1 month old).  Just wondering if I were to submit 10 articles to 10 different articles directories using the same article, would it be counted as 10 different backlinks?  Or it won't help much because of the duplicate article issue?

      Hope to hear your opinion.

      Yes the same article will be considered 10 backlinks in 10 different article directories.

      Hey Arnold,

      Good listing of top 10 directories.

      I read somewhere that Article directories is no longer an ideal way to increase the backlink of our sites? Due to lots of spam directories and people using directories only with the idea of getting backlinks SE's have changed the algoritham as no now directories wont play an important role in backlinking. Is that true?

      Let me know.

      I'm not sure on the link juice value passing of any of these sites tbh. If you are going to try, make sure to use original (or at the very worst spun) content when submitting your articles. Publishing the same article to 100 different article directories isn't going to get you any extra link juice.

      Also article marketing services, such as Linkvana, free traffic system, unique article wizard etc may all be better options.

      AaronHayward 6 years ago from Adelaide

      Shahrukhcress - No that definitely isn't the case. Take for example, they publish press releases to a huge amount of media outlets online. The articles are not spun or changed at all so that's 30,000+ versions of the same article being published online.

      Duplicate issues only have become an issue when there are multiple versions of the same page on a single domain.

      What a great source of directory information - but I have to add something which is slightly interesting on this topic.

      Earlier in the hub, Aaron mentioned that Google are possibly creating a single url link count from a directory, which I can tell you is not the case.

      The limit is one keyword url linked per page, from any site to any site - and there are no limits at all. We have tested this, and the only questionable action which they may take is a "site limit" due to spam - so if you are using the same site to publish all the time, then they may cut it to one or two.

      But, with eZineArticle, ArticleBase and GoArticles, this is not the case.

      Hope that helps.

      Just found out (because I tried), that no longer allows any duplicate content or article marketing! Only original content. Here's what they say exactly on their new membership page:

      "If you are looking to become a Buzzle author, you'll first need to create a Buzzle membership account here.

      However, before you proceed please note following:

      * no longer accepts marketing type articles

      *External links are NOT allowed in articles

      *We do NOT accept duplicate content i.e. if submitted article has full or partial content that already exists on some other website, we do not publish such article.

      *If you wished to utilize for article marketing, we are sorry but we do not allow it any more."

      Hope this info is helpful!

      I have found some of my articles submitted to to be copied to other sites, but WITHOUT an author bio box. That's a bit discouraging.

      When I contacted the offending sites, I heard nothing back. Obviously the original link was beneficial, but the viral growth was stopped as soon as the bio box was eliminated.
