    Just did a quick straw poll search on some articles from GoArticles and ArticlesBase in G (selecting a Couple of sentences in the article and chucking it in google) to see if they were indexed and the results were I couldn't find one from about ten that were.

    These were all random subjects from 4 or 5 years old to as recent as December 10 publications.

    Did the same on Ezine and found around 50% or so were indexed.....

    Conclusion we know panda hit the article directories hard and is it would appear de-indexing content. Some directories it seems it is hitting harder than others.

    Article placement is not going to have the same SEO benefit going forward..

    Unless it is quality unique content, is carefully placed (not wasted in a duff directory) and aggressive steps are taken to ensure the content gets crawled and of course indexed....

    Do any BHW members have a heads up on what they consider good directory placement sites?

    I have no had any problems getting content indexed from ezine, goarticles and buzzle. 90% of the time, if my content is good, I will get my articles indexed without any work whatsoever, sometimes a little bit of social bookmarking will suffice.

    I'm a firm believer that indexing problems from article sites are largely down to the quality of the content. Don't get me wrong, some article sites are worth shit, but there are still plenty out there that will give you some SEO benefit if you post a high quality article to them.

    Thanks for your input.

    I certainly haven't from ezine and have hand crafted a dozen or so articles for this site. All are indexed.

    And that is the rub I want to diversify a bit on article submission, not mass submissions but quality stuff kw rich hand written drip fed but want reliable sites on which to drop them.

    I know about using social bookmarking to get content indexed and always do this for my hand written blog postings. My favourite is Digg and once I have submitted the link google has always indexed the content usually in less than 60 seconds.

    Will have another look at Go Articles, maybe peel off some higher quality stuff this time for test and will look at buzzle.

    Buzzle are definetly worth a try, they seem to be valued quite high since it is a moderated site (unlike goarticles). Unfortunately there don't seem to be a huge amount of really high quality articles sites out there like Ezine and Buzzle, but check out this list (if you havent already) for some ideas on other good ones:
