Okay so, when submitting unique content to ezinearticles.com or any other article directory, that the article is on your blog. Do you have to wait for the article to be indexed on your site by Google before its indexed on ezine? Is there anyway to avoid the articles outranking your site severely in the SERPS. I don't want to be getting traffic to the articles and not the actual page on my site. Also, it is okay to publish your own written articles on these directories without having them spun?
