When to publish articles to article directories

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by dgeorge, Jan 12, 2007.

    I'm in the process of having 50+ articles created for my website. Each article will focus on a different keyword and will become a new page on my site.
    SEMrush
    After I add these articles to my site, I would like to publish these articles to various article directories and wondered how long I should wait to do so.

    I mainly don't want the search engines to think I copied the new content from article directories and get penalized for it.

    Never. Until your have a 2 year old trusted high ranking site you should never give away your content.

    Just rewrite those articles a little bit (doesn't take much) before distributing them.

    You can't distribute the articles you have now, before they are indexed by google - or google will indeed think you copied them from that article site instead of the other way around.

    Not sure how much rewriting is necessary. But I'd make it as much as you can.

    IMHO - put 40 on your site

    Take the other 10 and put one out everyweek for distribution.

    This gives you content while still building up your link profile. I have tried the 'waiting' bit... doesn't work. If the article ends up on a site with greater authority, you will still rank below them... even if you put it on your site and had it indexed

    I usually add a page per a keyword. DO NOT republish you content to article site. I would instead keep a few articles to use for publication.

    50+ articles, wow thats a lot and that is good for your site...you may want to take a few of your articles to be distributed to article directories while most will be on your site at least you'll not wait long enough just to submit those lots to article directories...as you have to wait for SEs indexed your site that contains those articles so you'll not be accused of duplicate content...and another thing with those few articles that you can submit to lots of article directories can be your start on improving your link popularity...

    I run an article marketing business and totally agree with gypsy.

    The content that goes onto article directories shoule not be on your site (dup content filters etc).

    Plus the better dirs to submit to won't allow the article if it's found elsewhere.

    I can write software to check for rewritten articles (part of my dupe cont check), I'm sure many others can as well

    If you have a lot of good quality content it would be nice to slit it up and use a part of it for submitting to online directories (for PR and traffic increase maybe) and the other part simply publish on your website.

    In this way you will eliminate the risk of duplicate content and get both areas covered in 1 shot.

    Regards

    If you have finished doing your articles, submit it to article directories right away. Don't forget to include a link to your site in the resource box.

    If I were you - I would submit one article every few days and drip them out there. The suggestion to rewrite them slightly - is a good idea as well. Also - if the 50 articles are the only thing on your site - you should find other content as well.

    A larger sites doesn't always mean better. I have many sites that are under 20 pages and do quite well for all keywords.

    One issue here is that link-directories aren't the only way to build links. SEOBOOK (see my links page) marketed himself by using adwords to target relevant but little used keywords - which brought in links - which in the long run helped him rank naturally.

    The PR of the aricle site doesn't matter, for numerous reasons; the most important aspect being dissemination
