Article directories are a dime a dozen. An article directory with no editor that lets anything get posted to it is of no use to you are readers. This list of the best article directories will help you get your articles published in places that matter.
If you are going to do it the hard way, meaning you’d rather submit your article one at a time and not use the best article syndication service I have ever used, then focus on submitting your articles to the best article directories below.
You won’t benefit from the long tail effect of submitting to the other article directories available, but you will at least hit the big ones with the highest Alexa and Google rankings.
- EzineArticles -The big daddy of article directories. If you could only choose one place to submit your articles, this would be a good choice. PR6
- Submit Your Article -This started as an article submission service, but has also turned into a high-quality article directory over the years. PR4
- Suite101 – Another monstrous article site. PR7
- Helium – An up-to-date article site. PR6
- ArticleDashboard -Another staple in article directories. PR5
- ArticleBase -This article directory has grown to a PR6 with lots of content and praise from article syndication experts.
- GoArticles -This one claims to be the largest, but I’m pretty sure #1, #3, and #4 give it a run for it’s money. PR4
- WebProNews -You have to be selected to get into this one but it’s well worth the trouble. Old and respected. PR6
- SearchWarp -Free to submit and serves a lot of articles. PR5
- Buzzle -A strong article directory. PR6
- Isnare -Also a submission service, iSnare is another strong article directory at PR6.
- American Chronicle -Actually part of a network of article sites. PR6
- ArticleCity -Pretty much your standard article directory. PR5
- IdeaMarketers -A giant, this is much more than a simple article directory. It is a newsletter builder and management system as well as a “home base” for authors. PR5
- Site Reference -This is a content portal with article submission built-in. PR5
- Article Alley -A standard article directory. PR5
- TheWhir -Another strong article site. PR6
- Articles Factory -Mid-level article site. PR4
- SelfGrowth -Won’t find this one in auto-submission software. Must become an “expert” first to then get access to submit articles. PR6
- Amazines -Pretty standard. Nothing fancy here. PR3
- Article Snatch – It’s pretty popular, but is a “no-follow” directory. PR5
