    Hey all,

    I'm wondering what are the most popular article directories for posting content too.

    For a long while I heavily relied on ArticlesBase, however this is clearly a stupid tactic, and as such on my new project I am looking to branch out across multiple directories.

    Here's my issue though; I can't seem to find any other directory which allows both self-serving links in the body, immediate approval of articles, and that ranks on the first page for quite a few niche longtails.

    When dealing with smaller niches, the only article directories I tend to see on the first page are; articlesbase, e-zine articles and goarticles.

    Do you guys have any ideas of article directories that can fit the criteria?

    Get a paid account with EzineArticles. Only about $100/mo and gets articles approved in about 15 minutes.

    Not worth it.

    Everything will get approved within a week anyway.

    If you submit everyday, you also will be published everyday. You are paying $100 a month to have 6 days worth of articles submitted first... after that it's all the same with daily submissions.

    This is where the adage "Time is money" comes in. 6 days to get indexed before competitors, 6 days to get direct traffic before your competitors and 6 days to start on back links before your competition.

    Some people are ballin and can afford it, if your business cannot afford the $100 a month stay clear from it

    lol i agree with you that submitting all of your articles to Articles Base is pretty stupid indeed, considering last time i checked Articles Base is no follow, mean you wasted all that time for nothing. directorycritic.com has a good list of article directories. some of the highest pr are EzineArticles, Buzzle, Self-Growth, Article City, Isnare, Article Snatch, Article Dashboard, Idea Marketers, Article Trader, Article Biz, A1 Articles, and Article Blast.

    although personally i just use Article Marketing Robot for article submissions. with AMR you can submit to thousands of article directories in 5 minutes with only a few clicks of a button
