I read somewhere that Google Has rejected article directories ??? for SEO working ?
Interesting! Can you post the link to that page here : )
yeah i would like to see link to that page.there are lots of rumor been flying around lately but none has solid evidence to back up the claim,so if i were i would stick with what learned from my own experience not blindly following what other peoples saying..
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.
might be so but im still doing all right with my blasts...
im still using submiteaze to do article links i havent seen or heard that google dont accept these links. and my sites are showing these backlinks when i check for them
I just got through using a article service on one of my sites and got good results
one more question, if ezinearticles is nofollow then why people and SEO Gurus submitted articles with their links on it ?
I am building an entire strategy based on Article Directories.. I hope the OP is not correct here..
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.
I am quite curious to know that link, as in seo perspective i have also seen very good results by doing article submission.
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.
As far I know its not true
