Which article directories does Google REALLY love?

    Not all Ezine Directories are created equal.

    Google really loves a couple of particular directories and
    assigns them a lot of value and authority. The other
    hundreds of article directories are only worth it for
    link building.

    Sites like EZA, SearchWarp etc.are definitely favoured
    by the Big G.

    I believe Google really loves these 3:
    SEMrush
    EZA (this is like the Google of article directories)
    GoArticles
    Searchwarp

    I've heard ArticleCity is pretty good too, but it doesn't
    allow you to set up an account and track stats, which
    is a real bummer.

    Which directories in your opinion does Google really loves?

    Hello. :) I'm a new member, a professional writer since 1969 and a webmaster since 1996. Two article directory websites that I think Google likes are articledashboard and ezinearticles, which may be the EZA you listed. These two websites had very fast approval times, but I haven't been into listing any article of mine since about 2005 because all my time has been occupied with paying work since then. My notes from that time say that GoArticles is a good one but Searchwarp developed some problems and became useless.

    Out of the three EZA is the best for trust and rank ability of articles. They also have the toughest guidelines and that's probably why Google likes them the best.

    How about Associated Content? I believe it is one of the best article directories too

    Agree with 'Homer' EZA is the best out of those three ;)

    GoArticles seems to work well for me in terms of getting articles distributed.

    EZA for me, seems to drive traffic as well as rankings.

    EZA told me that my story could not be published because I have my own link in it. Is it me or is that just a dumb ass reason to reject an article.

    You can read the guidelines here http://ezinearticles.com/editorial-guidelines.html

    You are allowed links in your content, 3-4 I think. The content generally should not be promotional and/ or self serving. Educational, life experience, knowledge and opinions are preferred. All they are really saying is they want original content that has value to people.

    Their guidelines are tougher than the rest. The value for writers is you can write a juicy article today, it's cached, ranked and sending traffic to your site tomorrow.

    i havent found the answer yet, kinda disappointed by most directories for articles. I wish Google would appreciate articles on qassia.com a lot more. It's a perfect website but somehow you can never find the articles in Google.
