    I've been writing a few articles recently and also have PAR (Power Article Rewriter), so I'm after some feedback on
    - where to submit the articles first (as they don't accept duplicate content Im thinking EZA first?);
    - which do accept duplicate content and so can just be submitted, as soon as EZA has approved it.
    - which will need to be spun in order to be % unique before I submit them.


    The ones I have in mind are:
    Ezine Articles (I know these only accept unique articles, which need to pass CopyScape)
    Buzzle - Again, as far as I understand it, these also have to be unique.
    GoArticles
    ArticlesBase
    Hubpages

    Questions:

    1) Which other Article websites would you recommend in addition to the above and which of these need to be unique/can be duplicate?

    2) For the ones that do not accept duplicate content, which would you choose and in which order would you submit them?


    My plan:

    - First get the unique article accepted into EZA
    - Spin the article so that it passes CopyScape
    - Spin X amount of times, using PAR (via the click of a button) and submit the spun versions to the rest of the sites, such as Hubpages, GoArticles etc. All the articles will link back to my main site and in some cases, the different articles (same theme) will link to another article. (For example, an article on Red Widgets links to article 2 'History of red widgets' - as well as back to my main website of course).
    - Build backlinks to the articles which get indexed by Google and also ranked fairly high. This way, I won't be building back links for every article, just the ones that Google rank highest straight away (as presumably, Google prefers them).


    Any feedback and help with the above thinking would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers.

    Right now I submit to Triond.com cause they want unique and they give me adsense revenue sharing, then I upload to Bukisa and then to AC (performance views only).

    My method is to get paid backlinks as each article makes a few cents everyday on views but also drops 200 or more unique visitors to my blog via my link.

    you are going right here
    - which do accept duplicate content and so can just be submitted, as soon as EZA has approved it.
    off course , but spinnning it would be good for google serp
    - which will need to be spun in order to be % unique before I submit them.
    my personal experinece says you need to make it atleast 40-50% unique , many others might have different view but this much % would be fine .

    Cheers for the replies.

    I guess it's just a case of adding a few more web 2.0 sites to add my articles and then spin them to 50% uniqueness.

    Like I say, EZA is where I think I'll submit there the first time and once it's accepted, submit the spun versions to other places.

    I'll then link same themed articles to other articles and back to my main website and webpages.

    It seem like that I should spend more time on article submitting. Thanks. BYW, why EZA always deny my articles every time?

    I my self tried article re-writter and spun the article for 250 unique articles. And my article is still pending approval on Ezine because it was just couple days back i submitted them but it has been approved by Articlebase, ArticleAlley and Goarticles.

    As long as the article is getting approved and your article is legible to understand it is enough.

    Hey Ravager, did you submit many spun version of your article to ezine? I heard it's getting difficult to get accepted by ezine with spun or plr nowadays.

    Do not submit spun articles to EZA, and it is always tough to get approvals on ezine. You need to write very well to get approval from them.

    where do you find writers for EZA and how much do they charge for a ezine article?

    The whole EzineArticles obsession is an absolute crock and its time it was put to bed.

    1) First of all, submitting to EZA just results in a high ranking post for EZA in the SERPs - it does not necessarily give you any more backlink strength or even visitors for that matter (I get way more visits from Articlesbase amongst many).

    2) EZA accepts some truly dire material so if you're getting refused by them (other than for their ludicrously anal restrictions like no links in the first 3 paras) then I'd seriously look to brush up on your writing skills.

    3) All article directory backlinks disappear over time as the directories themselves get progressively larger and the authority for each page is reduced to virtually nothing. The only way to avoid that is to build up backlinks to the directory pages themselves - hardly a good use of your time.

    4) Spinning is absolutely ESSENTIAL to maximizing the gain from any one article. With painful experiences from the past (like bulk submissions to ArticleMarketer resulting in whole sites being relegated to the supplemental index) I would never submit now without doing it.

    Article submission is the proverbial hamster wheel and as near to a regular job as you can get in SEO. Once you stop your ratings will almost immediately to fall as Google always favors new material, but it remains the best way to get a lot of keyphrase specific backlinks.

    Thanks Freller, but are there any free softwares to do article spinning. I urgently require it.

    When we spin articles do they pass copyscape in comparison to original article.
