    You would be nuts not to take advantage of them in my opinion.

    Ezinearticles doesn't get the same amount of traffic that they used to. I would still take a link from them though. They have pretty good PR, at least when compared to the average article site out there.

    articlebase.com is nofollow and appears to be noindex as well.

    I have over 200+ article for one site on articlesbase.com and it ranks well for all of its keywords.

    Like basstracker said, you would have to be crazy not to.

    Ezine is good because the articles get indexed quick and the resource box links you get are highly effective for micro niche and as a complete seo profile. The thing that steers most people away from them is the approval process.

    Use yahoo associated content (which I thinks called something else now) especially if you live here in the states because you get paid for each article and if not you get some juicy links.

    Both are useless.

    I don't think articlesbase.com is useless though but articlebase.com is.

    I disagree, nofollow links have value. Although they are not as valuable like a ******** link.

    Yes it has value... certainly it is not what it was back in the day but nothing is and that will always be the case as SEO is a fluid industry. A backlinking structure that has a bevy of different backlinks is what you want to build for your off site SEO and articles should be a part of it as that is natural to Google.

    Besides, you can slap an article together in 15 minutes and get it approved by ezine and then spin it and submit it other places as easy as pie.

    No, Google does not give them the same authority as before because they know it's only used for spamming.

    You would be wise to use EZA, AB and Associated Content, which is now Yahoo, as part of your overall backlink building architecture.

    The whole argument about shunning NF links has been proven time and again to be baseless.

    Moreover, not having NF links as part of your overall backlink building architecture, looks overwhelmingly unnatural.
