    What do you consider are the top article directories to submit too? I have a submitter but I know that it doesn't list the top ones as Ezine Articles isn't included.

    Ezine articles and goarticles seem to be the two most popular directories to submit to.
    Though in article marketing, the more directories you submit to, the more exposure, backlinks and traffic you will get out of your articles, and as you use a submitter, it won't be a pain in the a** to submit to a few hundreds ;)

    Look for the ones that don't flood the page with links
    Don't use the no follow tag yes some do use it
    Ones that keep the articles more then one month
    And check they let the page rank flow though the site

    at any time in the future you can check the best PR-juice ones this way:

    - take an article from one directory
    - search for a specific whole sentence of it in google (search in quotes though)
    - the results are sorted the way google weights them ;-)
    - check the first, see if it is "juicy" or has no-follow - if yes, you got the best one at present time for this niche, if not, check the next one and so forth

    Hope that helps!

    be careful about submitting to a ton of places, the verdict is really out on this. many believe that by doing do pages with your article will eventually be flagged as duplicate content and your added backlink will be given discounted authority. stick with the top directories and you'll save some time and be just as strong.

    EzineArticles will get you ranked the fastest for medium to low competition keywords. One thing that EzineArticles likes is internal links to your article. The more you have the higher your article will rank and the more page views it will get and you will get even more internal backlinks because it will be in the most popular article links for the category it's in.

    Every time you write an article to EzineArticles, you should include in your author bio box a link to another article you wrote for EzineArticles. This will get you approved faster and also give you a valuable internal backlink to your article.

    After this you should link back to your article through sites like Craigslist or USFreeAds and get some more link juice to get your article indexed faster and ranked higher.
