Do you have a list of article directories to submit your articles to, to build backlinks and traffic? This post is packed fulll of top article sites list – both high and low page rank, all with alexa ranking.
Article submission to top article directories is one of the effective methods of getting backlinks and traffic to your blog or website, for free. As you may or may not know, backlinks (with your choice of keywords in the anchor texts) are high in the factors that search engines use to rank a web page (article or blog post) on the Search Engine Result Pages (SERP), for any target keyword. Article marketing are great for new bloggers (and veteran bloggers too) who have zero or limited budget for their business, because article marketing costs no monetary investment at all.
For a new website, by submitting articles on high PR and top article directories, you can get your website indexed faster and generate a ton of backlinks. Furthermore, article submission can help you generate more traffic as well as lead to increased affiliate marketing sales, by writing product reviews and How-To articles around your affiliate products. For a new website, article directories can help the site get indexed faster.
Recently, following the Google ‘farmer algorithm update’ that caused most article directories losing their search engine rankings (and traffic and advertising revenue), bloggers and online marketers have been worried that article marketing is not effective anymore but that is not so. The truth is that the Google Farmer update has made low quality articles to pave way for quality articles. That means, you now have fewer competition for both ranking high and getting more traffic.
Article Marketing Guidelines, Post-Panda: What To Watch Out For, To Get Fast Approval
Post-farmer update, Google has released a guideline of what good quality articles mean. In addition, many of the article submission directories have had to review their submission and acceptance guidelines. You may want to know that across the article directories, the new generally acceptable article length is a minimum count of 400 words. Also play safe by limiting your links to the resource box, and only two; try to avoid being overtly promotional and ensure to not submit the same article to more than one article directory.
Now you know that article marketing still works, what has changed is that poorly written articles are no longer accepted.
