This is the process I use when submitting articles to directories, which involves a combination of an original, and couple of rewrites. It might take more work than just submitting the same article to all the directories but it gives the best link juice out of my one article. Personally rewriting an article is simple and takes no time for me to do but I know some people could have trouble doing it. If so, outsourcing it for $5 or less is well worth it.
What do you need?
- Original Article
- 2 rewrites of the original article
THE STEPS -Manual Submission
I normally avoid Mass Submission and just focus on manually submitting the articles; however, if you want to add the mass I would recommend doing it after the manual submits.
- Original article submit to articlesalley.com (PR7)
- Normally takes three days to get approved
- Wait until the article is approved before doing STEP 4
- Rewrite the original article than submit to suite101.com, articledashboard.com, and isnare.com (PR7)
- 2nd rewrite of the original article to submit to helium.com, webpronews.com, thewhir.com, and articlecity.com (PR6)
- Original article submit to (after ‘STEP 1’ Approval):
Ezinearticles.com, articlesbase.com, searchwarp.com, goarticles.com, articleally.com, articlecube.com, amazines.com (PR5-PR3)
- Backlink building to the articles (after all the articles are approved about 10 days)
- Create a RSS Feed on all approved articles
- Ping the RSS feed for 3 days until they get crawled or spidered.
That covers my process of getting the most link juice back from my articles submitted to directories. One of the main reasons, I posted this was to give me a quick reference, links, and reminder for future articles that are submitted to directories. Another reason is to help you get the most link juice from your articles.
