Do Article Directories Still Provide A Valuable Link?

3

Every now and then I’m still asked the question; “Is it worth it anymore to submit articles to article directories?”  My answer is still always “Yes!”  Here’s why; every now and then I will do a search for something and find that the number four listing is actually an article written and submitted to an article directory.  This can provide some traffic to your site for a particular keyword phrase.  Now imagine writing a separate article for every keyword phrase variation you can think of.  Most likely you would rank in the top five for those phrases also, and pick up additional web traffic.

Not only can the directories provide some traffic to your sites, they can also give you a valuable link back to your site by utilizing the resource box at the end of your article.  I’ve actually found a really good post that your should read in order to write a successful resource box.  You can find it here mgwaycorp.  This resource box makes the reader want to click through to your site.

Now not all article directories are created equally, in fact, Ezine Articles has the most prominence and respect from Google, although there are a few other powerhouses as well.  Here are my top five directories to submit articles to:

So when someone asks you if it’s still worth it to submit articles to article directories, tell them as long as articles are still ranking high in the search engines, the answer is yes.
