Internet Marketing – The Best Article Submission Sites


article submissionAnother tool in the SEO toolbox is article marketing.  An effective SEO article contains a keyword rich headline that is eye-catching and body content containing anchor text links to specific pages of the site you are trying to optimize.

The biggest benefit of an article marketing campaign is you can distribute it globally utilizing RSS.  Once article can be reposted over and over again with links to the site you’re trying to optimize.

I prefer to write interesting, quality articles that publishers will want to include on their site like this one on temporary workers and this one on LG cell phones.  Other Internet marketers prefer quantity to quality because many article sites limit anchor text in the body to only three outbound links.

Once you write the articles, where do you go to distribute them?  My friends at iXod Conversion Marketing have been kind enough to share their authoritative list of article submission sites.

These sites are listed in order of Google page rank and I’ve added some notes about each one.  This is not the complete list, but it contains the highest ranking article submission sites available.

Notes:

1.  Not every article submission site allows anchor text in the body of the article.  Some of them only allow it in the author’s resource box.  Some of them don’t allow anchor text at all.  You can still get results by having a keyword rich title which will show up in the SERPs and utilize direct links to the optimized site.

2.  I prefer to only submit to sites that allow anchor text in the body.

The Best Article Submission Sites Part 1

ezinearticles.com

This is the best site on the Internet for submitting articles.  It’s also the hardest to get accepted.  Articles need to be unique and you can’t just repost blog articles you’ve written.  Human editors approve or deny all submissions.

goarticles.com

This site is my second choice and also a very good source.  It is easier to be accepted here than ezinearticles.com

articlesbase.com

Very good site and easy to get started.

articlealley.com

Also pretty easy.

articledashboard.com

This is a good site I’ve used before.  I’m currently having some technical difficulties with it.

articlecity.com

Doesn’t allow anchor text anywhere.  You can still use a direct URL like https://seobyswaby.wordpress.com

articlepool.com

Anchor text in resource box only.

submityourarticle.com

You have to pay to submit your article here.  I don’t know if it’s worth it or not.

abcarticledirectory.com

Resource box anchor text only.

free-articles-zone.com

Resource box only.

articlesfactory.com

Resource box only.

dime-co.com

Resource box only.

articleslash.net

Resource box only.

simplysearch4it.com

Resource box only.

impactarticles.com

Allows anchor text, but is for business related articles only.

ideamarketers.com

This is a great site.  I’ve submitted dozens of articles to it in the past.  I don’t know why it’s so low on the Page Rank!

There are many more article sites on iXod marketing’s enormous list.  I just haven’t tested them yet.  Look for part two coming soon.

    Nigel, firstly thanks for the fantastic list.

    All the above article cities are a value for any marketer to launch website promotion.

    But, it is a repetitive work to go into each one and submit it manually. Like for example, Ezine Articles are very fussy with the contents of the article but well worth the trouble.

    I use and article rewriter submitter software that helps me a lot in terms of getting exposure to my sites on top of the list I use above. With these two systems in place I get more exposure on the internet.

    I’ve written about these tools I use of over on my page here

    Let me know what you think. I think it is well worth it to have this as a tool every-time one writes an article.

    Tip: converts one article in hundreds and then auto submits to article directories for free – over and over.
