Lisa’s List Of The Best Article Directories
There are several ways to approach article submissions. The first is to submit your articles to lots of article directories for more backlinks and to possibly rank for long-tail keywords from several places. But the preferred method by me is to hand pick the best article directories (most traffic, most published, good PR ranking) and submit articles to only those top article directories.
Here is my updated list of the best article directories on the web by pagerank as of: March 29, 2011
PR7 – Best Article Directories
- Suite101 – This is the big kahuna of article directories based on its PR ranking, time on the web, and the fact that you get paid ad revenues for your work.
