Is Articlebase Nofollow article directory!

    I googled for top directories and i found that vretoolbar is listing articlebase.com as a nofollow directory!:confused:

    Does that mean submitting to articlebase will not help in SEO!

    Please suggest, i used to submit more articles to goarticles and article base!

    they are a nofollow directory which is a bit of a rip off,

    some people suggest there is still some good to come from nofollow tags

    Although it is a no follow directory, the active users are more on the site, you can use it to drive the traffic by good click rate

    good point, that wont be useful to everyone though, as a local job board its unlikely anyone who reads our articles will come from the same city as us, for this reason articles are merely a link building tool.

    Those who have national or international site will benefit from the boost in traffic

    It's not that they won't be useful SEOwise. Its just that they won't be nearly as useful as if they were DOfollow. Try EzineArticles, I think that it is much better than any other article directory out there....

    Really?

    I'm sure we all would love to see Historical First do follow Tag.
    Why don't you post snip of HTML Code where it says do follow?

    :rolleyes:

    Articlebase IS nofollow. I still use it however, a backlink is a backlink and YES, your articles WILL be indexed in google. I've had some of mine on articlebase come onto the first page of google.

    Nofollow is not always bad; although it won't help for your pagerank, a well written article can lead to some highly targeted traffic to your websites.

    oops, we have another "winner"

    Nofollow is never bad after all why it should be bad?

    So, Google won't go to site mentioned in link... what bad about that?

    Really???

    It says no-follow, it doesn't says no-count.
    Can you show us where it says Google won't count that as backlink?

    Why are you people voluntarily making idiots of yourselves?

    :confused:

    Actually, when I first submitted an article to articlebase, when you preview your article before you publish it, the links are dofollow (if in the resource box) and I was all excited. Once it's published however, it goes nofollow.

    Still, all you ignorant people who know nothing about SEO and just echo others about how nofollow is bad and useless, please be quiet and go away.

    Even though articlebase is nofollow its good for traffic as its highly visited! At the end of the day im in it too make cash, if a buyer comes from articlebase and makes a purchase on my site I will be much happier than someone coming from a dofollow and not purchasing. My opinion anyway!
