Article Marketing Sites Made With Services, Forums, & News

There’s a lot of information out there to learn about article marketing. So here I’m going to tell you about article marketing sites made with services, forums, & news. Alongside that, I’m going to tell you about my favorite article directory called Street Articles (already made obvious by how you’re on Street Articles now).

Why Seth Prefers Street Articles

There are many reasons why I prefer Street Articles over any other article directory. Street Articles comes packed with strict guidelines for ensuring your articles get ranked high in Google. Because of that, Street Articles has gotten to the point of actually ranking articles in around 30 minutes to 1 hour after acceptance of the articles partly due to its Alexia Ranking & Google PageRank it has in Google along with other vital considerations. This means they are quickly becoming a dominant factor in today’s Search Engines.

Then SA also comes with your own built in profile (which is HIGHLY important), the ability to add 3 links to your profile, your own built in profile for your Street Articles, the ability to add social media to your profile, the tribe option where you can follow anybody you want on Street Articles, how fast they accept articles, & many other things. Put simply: I use Street Articles for all my publications. Yes, you might find me on another article directory. But that’s only because I’m killing a certain keyword (writing more than 2 articles for that keyword for Google’s Search engine) or I’m doing something else not normal or funky-ish. ;) Don’t worry, I don’t smell.

Article Marketing Sites

There are many article marketing sites out there to take advantage of. Yes, you can base them off Google PageRank or Alexia Ranking. But in all honesty, that’s not the smartest thing to do (even though these stats should still be considered). Some of the things you really need to consider are what type & how many people are in the article directory, who runs it, how they have it structured, if you get paid or not through affiliate payout, & what you personally think when you view how the site ranks in Google. So with that said, the top 5 known sites based solely off Alexia Ranking (how much traffic goes on those article directories each day) are:

  • ehow
  • squidoo
  • hubpages
  • ezinearticles
  • examiner

Take note this is partly due to how old those article directories are, how many articles are put out on the world-wide-web due to authors, & doesn’t affect your page ranking at all.

Article Marketing Services

Some article marketing services you can expect via article directories are the ability to contact people who run the article directory, the option to submit suggestions for improving their database, or an advertising option for putting up your ads. Then of course article marketing sites usually involve an author page list, certain article lists, a blog/forum, competitions maybe, an affiliate information page, and other things.

Article Marketing Forums

As for article marketing forums, you might or might not have access to it. Street Articles only allows the administrators to post about certain things going on with them like updates they’ve just made even though they do allow commenters with the Facebook add-on (there’s an option where you don’t have to comment with your actual Facebook account). Obviously a forum can be created in many different types of ways, but forum systems are starting to become a thing of the past for more experienced users anyway due to how you have to actually visit the forum 1st to see all the questions & responses.

Article Marketing News

Finally, you have your article marketing news. Most of your article marketing news will be displayed through the use of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or other sites that are tied into the article directory. The article marketing forums could be another thing that’s used for the article marketing news also. I’ve seen some article directories that actually display on the front page different news-headers & updates they’ve had. It really just depends.

Why Should I Care About All This Though?

There are many reasons why you should care about all this stuff. This goes to show how that article directory runs there database, how often they update it, how they run it, who runs it, the type of people who publish things in it, how well it’s known, how many people are actually in that directory, how new or old the article directory is, if they have good guidelines, if they offer good service, & if it will actually help you with your own article marketing endeavors. Finally, It’s highly important that you use your own perception, use your own personal judgement, & figure out how article marketing will best suit your own needs before expanding on that later in awesome types of ways. ;)

Final Thoughts

If you have any thoughts or questions about anything discussed here about article marketing, anything discussed here, or anything else in general with it, all comments are welcome.

Thanks Seth, Great Article.

Great Info! I am a budding SA author and the information about other directories is helpful. I suppose by branching out to other sites helps to broaden the audience? At least, that is what I gather you are saying. I have just started checking out the other sites you mention. I wish I would have read your article sooner! LOL It would have saved me a bunch of research time! Thanks again, Seth!

Seth I enjoyed your article....Article marketing is one of the best tool to drive traffic to your website.

Seth, great article, but you know that already. :)

Thanks Shawn. :) I'm sort of testing things out with this article. I'd have to say this was one of my weirder articles.

Very good information and insight Seth. I'm starting to favor Street Articles for all its advantages that you mention above. I find it hard to write for too many directories, in that I like to create informative content for my own sites as well. I try to write thorough content in regard to my niche, and it takes a great deal of time. I'm enjoying your articles. Thank you.

  about 1 decade ago

I use other article directories only to publish more than 2 pages for a certain keyword (since you're limited to 2 pages via every website per keyword). I also use other article directories to "create contacts" & get to know other people. I haven't gone very far with the getting to know other people yet, but that's the plan anyway. That's great you write thorough content for your niches too. :) Being able to target good keywords, writing your own reviews over products, & stuff is great. Thanks for the compliment too. :) See you around Joan. ;)

Another top article Seth you really are sharing a lot of info that would take us all a long time to explore ourselves. Thank you for your diligence and breaking it down for us numpties. LOL!

  about 1 decade ago

Yeah, I spent a long time figuring this stuff out myself, LOL. At least you all are benefiting from it.

  about 1 decade ago

Interesting info well written.

  about 1 decade ago

Thanks Cynthia. A lot of it was pretty basic, but I threw in some gems in there people might pick pick up. You can't solely base an article directory just on Alexia Ranking or Google PageRank.

  about 1 decade ago

Good info Seth

  about 1 decade ago

Thanks Kevin. :) I'm testing a few things & seeing how well this article ranks to be honest. I'm taking SA up on its word & putting them to the test.
