Thanks...I'm looking for an actual service with a huge reach. I want to reach the maximum number of outlets possible.
Any ideas anyone?
Recommending specific sites is against TOS. Use Google to find them - and locate the best one for your needs. There are also some software packages available that are quite good too.
Can someone sticky me a good service?
You really donot need to use an automated SW to submit to many sites, IMO. Most ppl use only two or three.
Most people use two or three what?
The idea i had in the beginning when i made the first post was to find out the top place to get your articles seen.
I'm more interested in the quality of where the articles will be posted and actually getting business from them and not so much for link pop.
I used an incredible service in 02 but have since lost the file and don't remember who they were....but they got my articles published in a @#$%^ load of places...wish someone had ideas on a good service.
I think they mean that just using a few of the largest directories is better than using software to do it for you. It's easy to just submit to these larger sites -- I've had some good article placements using them. :)

Not only that, but (NOT here) I've been seeing lots of driveby spam posts at a few other forums around with a TON of crummy URLs - multiple posts that got pulled.
It's the latest link-spam fad, like the directories craze was - which is probably how the search engines will see it and blast them out of being worth anything with little time wasted.
The best thing to do IMHO, is to customize and be very selective, looking for a few of established quality with a strong possibility of targeted traffic rather than quantity.
What I meant that only a few article directories are wortyh submitting, only a few get any traffic and have contents syndicated.
Can someone also please sticky me on where to submit articles? I was looking at a few sites that supposedly submit your article to hundreds of ezines, but I'm not sure if its a good idea or not.
I found an interesting article on this subject just yesterday. Obviously can't give the url here but search for "There are three basic strategies for publishing articles" in quotes and you should find it. I'm changing my strategy as a result...
I personally use a service that gets the articles to relevant sites on the web
They seem to get it to the most relevant sites
