    Hey everyone,

    What are your thought on using places like Ezine Articles to submit a few "quality" articles that contain links back to your site to generate a few backlinks?

    I know they're heavily scraped, but not sure if that's a good or bad thing either.

    I have 3 uniques articles there since last september, and to be honest, I didn't get any return from them.
    So take it "AS IS"...

    If you write enough articles, you get a lot of backlinks. It's just a matter of persistence.

    I agree. With the amount of articles coming in, there is a chance that your article might be lost with the numbers, but you never know when you might hit the jackpot. :D

    Ezinearticles is a great directory - if you submit quality unique articles I can assure you good traffic from them (I have quite a few articles there and receive good traffic from them).

    The trick is to write AWESOME articles. If you write the standard rehashed or recycled information, you'll get squat.

    If you write something really good that hasn't been heard of before, or a new take on a common theme, you'll see traffic and lots of backlinks from quality sites.

    The other trick is to submit articles as much as you can, even submit a few at a time. You can't expect much from 2 articles when there are 45,678 expert authors submitting their own articles every day at EzineArticles.

    i have been using iSnare. For $2 they will submit to many other article directories and something like 40K publisher. Not everyone will pick the article up, but if you write them well, many will.

    I need to update my post here.
    I pay the 10 bucks and re-submitted my 3 articles.
    I got them approved after 5-6 days and submitted.
    So I guess, if you pay, you get it done...

    iSnare is good but they are freaking slow at accepting articles. Even after paying it takes them 5-6 business days which is lame IMO. Ezinearticles without charging approves my articles within few hours.

    I find ai get a few direct referrals from the links on the author area, but more importantly, a slight boost in the SERPS.

    Theres a method called "Bum Marketing" - where you can make thousands a month online by writing articles. It is uses for Clickbank affiliate links, Ezine articles does not allow affiliate links but you can direct the page to your website and create a landing page.

    Poeple are constantly searching for popular keywords. I use Overture and wordtracker to help me.

    Exactly :)

    I've submitted some of my best articles there and those are the ones that get published on a bunch of sites. Some of my so-so articles get published too, so overall I'm very happy with ezinearticles.
