Hi, if I am going to submit a same article to five to ten article directories, I am sure google will list only one or two among those on search results. But what would happen to backlinks ? Say if each copy of the article has 2 backlinks and the same article (unchanged) has been submitted to 5 directories, now will ten backlinks be counted or only two ? Someone please help me to understand how search engines consider backlinks from multiple submissions ?
Hi, Thanks a lot. Also, will multiple submissions to article directories be considered spamming or manipulation ? I have well written articles which I had submitted each one of them to only one directory. Now will it be a good idea to take the same article and submit to many directories ?
If you submit a page to 10 directories and the article is then sent out to 90 sites you have a potential for 100 incoming links. From that you can ultimately expect 1 qualifying backlink and 99 duplicates and the value of your backlink will depend on which site Google ultimately chooses to call the owner of that article.
It's also likely that article directories are somewhat discounted so there is a chance you end up with no qualified backlinks at all in the long run. Some may show up temporarily but they likely will fade away in time, especially when the article becomes buried in a sites archives.
