    What do you mean reject? Sometimes I get tired of all these romours and so called SEO gurus everywhere. My results speak otherwise. And even if they devalue them, we shall get a better option.

    1) EZA isn't nofollow

    2) even if it was, nofllow still gives linkjuice

    They still work fine for backlinks. What happened was they got slapped from the Panda update causing them to lose a lot of rankings and traffic.

    matt cutts has said that he personally doesnt like article directories but he never gave an official google stance. theres a youtube video out there on this.

    the idea behind article directories is to get other webmasters to use your article where it has a link in it. you also get a backlink to your site. nodollow/dofoll is on the article dirctories page which has your article on it. of course you do not want a nofollow on your site link in the article.

    you are basically creating link bait to spread across the web. however, if you use someone's ezine article, you may get screwed with a duplicate content penalty if google cant figure out the author box. this likely one reason to use the rel author tags and have a google plus account for validation.

    the main issue is just use original article, written by yourself, even if your writing skill is limited edition.

    See the traffic of ezine articles and their articles never would be within the top 5 spot for any keyword search

    Google Panda is new tool of Google due to which Google comes to know that Is this article is copy write or not? If that article is copy write Google keeps it back-ward and maintains it its ranking.
