    I am very new to article marketing, ready to setup a payday loan site. I want to create 30 articles with unique content contain following terms in the title of the articles.

    30 day payday loan,bad credit payday loans,best payday loans,cheap payday loan,cheap payday loans,easy payday loan,emergency payday loan,fast payday loans,faxless payday loan,guaranteed payday loans,instant approval payday loans,instant payday loans,internet payday loans,no credit check payday loans,no teletrack payday loans,one hour payday loans,online payday loans,payday cash loans,payday loan lenders,payday loan store,payday loans no faxing,quick payday loan,same day payday loan

    Each of the articles will have a link refer to my site using same anchor text, e.g. <a href="http://www.mysite.com">Payday Loan</a>

    My questions :
    - Is this practice shunned by authority sites like ezinearticles,goarticles, etc? Kinda afraid they will reject the articles because of repetition of "payday loan" in all titles, all articles will be submitted from same account.
    - Can I upload all articles to my site, what if Google penalize me for duplicate content?
    - What is recommended word count for articles?

    Thanks!! :)

    First thing: "Payday loan" is a hugely competitive keyphrase.

    Second: "Payday loan" --> Ezinearticles has more than 17,000 articles, so can you compete with them with your articles? See:
    http://www.google.com/search?as_q=%22payday+loan%22&hl=en&num=10&as_sitesearch=ezinearticles.com

    Can you think of another longtail keyphrase instead?
    For example:
    "payday loan lenders"
    Which isn't in your list but that phrase is still rising (see Google trends)
    or
    "payday advance loans" --> Which is doing even better,
    or
    "payday loans no faxing"
    See:
    http://google.com/trends?q=payday+loan+lenders%2C+payday+advance+loans%2C+payday+loans+no+faxing&ctab=0&geo=us&geor=all&date=ytd&sort=0

    The "payday advance loans" in my opinion will give you a better foothold on EZA although "payday loans no faxing" has lesser number of EZA articles.

    Another interesting fact:
    See:
    http://google.com/trends?q=Cash+advance%2C+payday+loan%2C+payday+loans&ctab=0&geo=us&geor=all&date=mtd&sort=0

    Do you notice that "payday loans" is beating "payday loan" but still has lot too many articles at EZA for comfort?

    ALSO:
    Consider these facts:
    "payday loan" --> 6.1 million results in google.com
    EZA --> None in top 50 or more.
    "payday loans" --> 8.7 million results in google.com
    EZA --> None in top 50 or more.

    So probably if you can beat the top in EZA, you can be able to come up much higher in EZA. (On second though, why don't you see if you can beat those top Google rankers! If you can do this, I think you can beat all those EZA articles too):)

    So, decide which keyphrase is better for you as an anchor. The present EZA articles will beat you if you are not cautious in your selection and your campaign will stall. Can you beat them? Because beating them also means assured better SERPs. But beating the top Google rankers will mean much better results and an assured EZA 1st position among 17,000 :D
    (It can be done too!;))

    Good luck.

    Just to let everyone know...srb has just posted one of the best breakdowns of proper keyword usage, research, SEO and Ezine submission you will find.

    Brilliant post!

    As you were targeting "payday loan" as your anchor text, I gave you those readings.

    Now see:
    http://google.com/trends?q=online+payday+loans%2C+payday+loan+online%2C+payday+loans+online%2C+&ctab=0&geo=us&geor=all&date=ytd&sort=0

    "online payday loans" and "payday loan online" are doing well, almost as well as the others mentioned in my previous post. But the Google's top positions for "online payday loans" are securely held by some top sites. But EZA's own power can help you get better and just below them. To do that, check:

    http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en&num=100&fp=BdW5r7g9Qsk#complete=1&hl=en&q=%22online+payday+loans%22+site%3Aezinearticles.com&aq=f&oq=&aqi=&fp=AKTGLx-PhfA

    Go after the top 5, study what they have and do better than those. Those are 5,800 approx articles with the exact keyphrase, but you just have to concentrate on the top 5. For that you'll still also need PLENTY of backlinks to your EZA. Concentrate on that first while also doing the other articles. Once you have 2-3 articles for EACH of your top keywords (eg., "online payday loans") and hit top positions in EZA, then concentrate on other articles with the same keyphrase if you want it that way. IMO, you should also put up other top keywords in EZA and rank top.

    Remember, your anchor text is going to give your site the targeted traffic & authority, and then your other keywords are going to add to it.

    EZA is going to help you fight the top established sites in Google.

    But every article on your new website is going to make it popular with repeat traffic. Only then you're going to get "customers".

    BTW, you must have your website ready with same articles but written uniquely. AND your monitization firmly in place.

    -----
    To answer your following questions:
    - Is this practice shunned by authority sites like ezinearticles,goarticles, etc? Kinda afraid they will reject the articles because of repetition of "payday loan" in all titles, all articles will be submitted from same account.
    No sweat! Your article content counts more than your keywords for EZA. Have the correct keyword density (3%-4%) and follow EZA Guidelines.

    - Can I upload all articles to my site, what if Google penalize me for duplicate content?

    Of course, if your articles are indexed after EZA (almost certainly), then your articles will be duplicates. So rewrite them without losing the punch.

    - What is recommended word count for articles?
    Depends up on what and how much you wish to convey. Still aim for 400~600 words at most if possible. Your BIO must convey your expertise though.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for all the posts guys. I have submitted all of my 17 articles (outsourced) to 100 + directories, eza included, eza accept most of the articles without problem.

    I have 3 unique versions for each articles (UAW articles) and store all three orginal versions on my site, I submit the spun version of those articles to directories.

    It is a good idea to have all three versions of the original articles on my site?. Each content is unique to spiders. Should I just keep 1 and not three?

    Thanks!
