    I know people who are focused on SEO use article directories to help promote and rank their blogs. I personally do not use article directories because I am more focused on viral marketing than SEO!

    In my opinion article directories are not good for your online marketing campaigns. Article marketing is not only a waste of time but also you will not receive any benefits from your efforts. Better try guest blogging. :)

    Well, I did article submission for many website but I am talking about blackhat technique.
    I create 250-350 Article backlinks by posting on directories and blogs and get quick ranking dominating many keywords just from that! Including keywords like "Live Cricket" and others. So yes, it surely works but its pain in a** if you do it manually. If you are going to go for manually then just submit on 10 High PR websites like EZINE and go-article and dont do it for others.

    YES!!!
    i would say article marketing is one of the most important technique to get traffic to your site or blog. The reason is that it is the one marketing technique that has brought me the most traffic and sales, as well as help me build my business.
    you have to show your expertise in front of your readers if you want to get more traffic and sale for your business.

    It is better to use facebook (you can combine FB groups + FB fanpages). For example I get viral free traffic just by posting ads on fb. It's 100% free and you don't waste your time for nothing

    those days are very much over. Many people today are fooled into using automated directories submission programs to submit their blog, website, discussion forum and RSS feeds to them, not knowing those directories have very little effect on improving their overall search engine optimization efforts. In addition, these people are absolutely sold on the fact that they can build back links, when that fact is actually a myth.

    I think article marketing is less important now in respect to years ago. Many directories are dead

    do you feel your search engine rankings have improved since you incorporated article marketing into your online promotional regimen?

    I don't grow my business by focusing on article marketing, I prefer to focus my marketing into safe actions that work forever in the future

    Yes, I am submitting articles on different article directories. But the main thing is we have to submit our article on good traffic and page rank article site. And don't have to over submitting too.

    Article directories are dead now. They aren't very effective for SEO and link building anymore.

    Hello,

    What exactly is your objective in submitting your content to article directories?

    If it is about getting links, then Google's Penguin algorithm pretty much put a stop to mass production article directory submission. You're better off finding websites of high value to submit your content to vs. article directories.

    If your objective is about branding yourself, I think you may be better off with websites like StumbleUpon, Scoop.It, Squidoo and the like.

    Let us know what you're your end goal is and perhaps that will help provide better direction.

    I totally agree with you. If you can write 1 good unique article a day and submit it, that's better than using a rewriting program and having 100 different variations of it. Additionally, you can use content distribution which is a paid service to have your new articles auto-posted on Twitter, StumbleUpon, Facebook, LinkedIn, VK, and many more social networks.

    Hey, that's all good too. Just as long as someone accepts your content and you get backlinks + traffic from your published works. What article directory did you try to submit to?
