Hi Guys,

I did some article submitting when I started out, but have not done so for a while. I recall a little blip in site visitors, but no idea re long-term benefits resulting. Three years on Im wiling to re-visit the issue. I've got some questions:

1.Which are the best sites?
2.Do any allow multiple in-text hyper links to relevant external sites including the writers?
3.Do any actually distribute and promoter for free? Without preventing the original author from independent marketing of the article in question?
4.AOB or best practice?

Im grateful as always,

B.

Pretty sure I might be the minority reply, so keep that in mind...

1.Which are the best sites?

That we cannot say. We do not discuss sites in that fashion.

2.Do any allow multiple in-text hyper links to relevant external sites including the writers?

Some will, however most blog sites use nofollow so there's little benefit.

3.Do any actually distribute and promoter for free? Without preventing the original author from independent marketing of the article in question?

Personally, if someone sends me an article I require a one year exclusive, else it is not worth my time to publish.

4.AOB or best practice?

You get what you get if submission is accepted.

Thanks Tangor,

The no-follow issue was recently dealt with here:

[webmasterworld.com...]

I'm not talking about Blogs, and avoid Twitter and Wordpress sites like the SEO plague. There are article sites out there that claim to be SEO friendly.

However, an interesting aside: one webmaster told me he put his Wordpress links in html. Surely you cannot over-ride Google-Wordpress 'no-follow' strictures?

As a rule, I always look at the page coding before posting anything with a link to see if it will count SEO wise!

You have head screwed on properly. Getting valued links is hard work. No magic bullet.

I think I'll forget it. My first attempt has floundered on my apparent inability to input the Captcha code, and my second one won't recognise my email as a real email, even though I've signed up with it and received an email from them!

I reckon they just collect emails for s[pamming purposes! I'm pissed off big time!

Back to real links....
