    I know they can be good for traffic, but do you get any rankings boost from them?

    Yes I wrote about 25 articles and submitted them to the top 10 article directories ( ~2-3 unique articles each) and went up. Pay attention to your onpage SEO when writing your article.

    They will help but do not expect it to push you to page 1 with 10 articles. More than helping with the SERP's, it can be used to improve the trust rank for your site. I think Google is well aware of the manually reviewed process there which is why many of their articles rank well for long tail keywords.

    So, a back link from them is good. More than helping with SERP's, I think it improves the trust rank for your site. Just keep sending an article or two on a regular basis and Google will give you some cushion from the sand box even if you get other back links quickly and aggressively.

    Ezinearticles, if used correctly, provides an excellent backlink as well as the articles ranking in the search engines themselves. The only downside is that their position in the search engines can easily be over taken by a well built SEO site.

    It used to help a lot when people were using syndications and publishing your article across their blogs too. Now when i search for my article on google, all i get is spinned versions posted to spam blogs linking to competitors web sites. I still think its worth doing it though

    It's an authority backlink with anchor text of your choice, surrounded by relevant content -- lots of it. What more do you want?

    Ezine is wonderful for driving traffic.

    The backlink given is also good, but the effort vs reward ratio is way off, with ezine in particular as they moderate so thoroughly and you have to provide them with quality content.

    An article for a backlink is not a good deal.

    An article which ranks, drives traffic and has an added backlink as a bonus is definitely worthwhile.

    The backlink is in my view just a bonus.

    Oh that's great, so you are doing it for the deep links as well as creating backlinks to the backlinks to make it powerful right? Thanks

    I always use Ezinearticles for backlinks.

    The backlinks alone are great. Many times people will republish your content giving you a huge boost especially when your article lands on PR 3+ pages which does happen with the things I write from time to time.

    Well i think, Not only ezine, Google respects all websites which are having good editorial team. Let me name some, Wikipedia, ezine and more. . We need to find and build backlinks there, which will help in SERP in more way. . I think ezine is the only option :p

    Hi, recently i've noticed that you only get couple of links showing in yahoo site explorer from any one domain. Is there any point in submitting 20 articles to ezine to get backlinks for SEO purposes. I know it will bring more traffic but strictly for seo does it make any difference.

    Thanks

    That's exactly right... a lot of my ezine articles point to one of my inner pages and I always promote my articles no matter what web 2.0 property or article site they are on.

    I have a bunch of PR3 articles on ezine because of it and that link sure helps my sites in the serps.

    Your not going to get a better synopsis of the benefits than this. I have around 750 Ezine articles going back about 2 years which continually bring in many thousands of targeted visitors a month. The primary aim in my view with EA is targeted traffic firstly, and a couple of quality backlinks as a bonus. The trick with EA is writing a good quality article - one of the best tips I got actually came from the EA blog where the decent publishers talk about what they want from an article along with its most attractive attributes. Don't have the link to hand but worth searching the site to read and digest.

    And sometimes even without promotion at all the articles can become PR 1 or 2 very easily within 3 or 4 months. They are GREAT links. :)
