    Not much actually and technically...

    Article Directory - like ezinearticles -- has tons of articles on all possible topics ... they are also specialized directories covering niches..

    Problem - Same IP for all your articles
    ----------------------------------------------

    Blog Networks -- like bmr etc -- covers and distributes your articles to many of the different blogs that have tied up with a network... so a BMR will have 1000's of blogs which are also high PR -- owned by many different blog owners, on different IP address

    Hence the links are counted much more and are much more powerful...

    hope it gives a bit of clarity

    How does BMR get access to so many different blogs owned by different owners? Do those owners sell their space to them or something?

    Yes ... ofcourse....

    These are high PR blogs who constantly need content so that their site keeps getting updated and they can make money off advertisements , adsense etc....

    +

    BMR also pays them OR the other agreement could be that you get free content but you will have to put links (not so sure- as both are possible, though the prior is 99% the case)

    Its not just bmr -- their are many many networks -- see my signature thread

    My understanding is that the creators of BMR 100% own all the sites in their network. They are on different class-c IPs and efforts are taken to make them appear they have different owners.

    As such, there is no major difference between in article directory and article blog network. In article blog network, you are allowed to submit your blog as well.

    BMRs get access to all free and easy to sign up networks.

    BMR is all owned by one guy, but there are other private networks spread across multiple owners.

    The big difference to me is the exclusivity. A private network has links that are not open to everyone. Ezinearticles will let anyone in. If Google sees a link from ezine articles it knows that the site that it is linking to was responsible for publishing that article on the ezine. It would make no sense for them to weigh that as highly as a link on a blog where it looks like the blog owner was just writing about a site he thought was cool. One looks like a natural link and the other looks like a link to manipulate the search engines.
