Let me start by saying, I like what Steve Shaw writes about article marketing.
If you think article marketing is about getting your articles published on other high-traffic, popular authority sites for better exposure, you are living in a dream, a normative one for that matter.
These days, it just won’t happen. Any good, quality site gets barraged with guest posting offers, so that they don’t really need to scrap useless crap from the article directories. That’s a fact!
Moreover, even if some obscure site does choose your article for republication, you can be sure that they will not include your resource box link in there.
Tell you something, there’s started a big debate after the Google Panda update in 2011, regarding whether article marketing is out and guest posting is in. When Ana Hoffman says, article marketing still works, although crafted in a clever way, a SingleGrain.com article strongly purports that guest posting is in.
If you ask me whether article marketing is dead, I would say – article marketing is dead (IMO)!
Recently, I wrote how the whole method of article marketing has changed and the following video just proves that.
So what has article marketing ended up to? NOTHING!
People steal content from there. Hardly ever anyone republish your content legally. Your backlinks don’t count that much. Your direct traffic fizzle out.
Bad for article marketers indeed!
It sounds as if a great dynasty is coming down soon. To speak the truth, we fear the age of article marketing domination is going to be over soon.
Recently I was reading in a James Martell article how article marketing may soon be off the map. He has led us through a strong argument and the moral of his story was article marketing is spam. And truly it is.
Just look at the number of crap articles that are submitted in the article directories regularly. Thousands churned out from some run-of-the-mill spinning machines (as though) and vomited in these article directories. I pity them!
The following are a list of the best article directories to
submit your articles to. There are many article databases
and directories online but certain directories get a lot
more visitors then others.
Therefore, you have successfully written an article and are
now ready to submit it. Congratulations! Here are a few
easy things you need to do before you submit your articles
to directories to avoid problems.
