    Hello all

    New to the forum so a hello to start.

    Starting a new site focusing on Language Learning and want to get my articles out there
    what is the best way to do it. Is there some good software that will submit my articles to all the top places? paid or free? is it better to do it manually? Is there a good list somewhere etc etc?

    Want to stick to White Hat SEO, appreciate any thoughts on this and thanks

    It is better not to use article directories for link building. I tried to find article directories that haven't been smashed by the updates (you can check with semrush). I found none.

    I would advise against it and instead go for press release backlinks.

    PRs are better but it depends on the sites you syndicate to.

    First of all, welcome to the forums! :)

    As for your question, I'd recommend steering clear of Article Directories as Google seems to hate them now. Look into Press Releases, Web 2.0's, Social Bookmarks, Q&A Sites etc. Good luck on your journey!

    I don't think it is a good idea to use article directories. you can do that but only on highly quality websites like enzinearticles, goarticles and so on. You can try to make guest blogging on education niches to build your quality links. Check myblogguest forum.

    Submitting articles by manually is very Good idea but you have to keep in mind that you should post 1 content to only 1 article site.

    I also agree with "seranking". Try to guest post your content on relevant sites. It helps to get you qualified traffic and boosts social presence.

    Article directory is not the best way today.Instead go for tier1,2 or 3 method.

    You will have to do article directory submissions and guest blogging manually. Get unique articles written for each platform.

    Don't spend much time on article directory, try web 2.0, Q&A, socail, guest post.

    I suggest that you stay clear of Article Directories since Google has been taking article directories down for several months now. I suggest that you do a Press Release, social media, and high authority Web 2.0 Sites.

    I suggest you connect with language schools that run blogs or collaborate with other language blogs to to guest posting. You can also get engaged and answer questions on Quora and link to your website or your profile. Find websites in your niche where you can become a contributor and post your articles, include a link to your website in your contibutor profile. Language learning or any other learning really, is popular on youtube, so you can start your youtube channel and include links to your website in the video description.
