Submit Your Article Overview
There are plenty of article submission websites that will distribute your articles to article directories, but Submit Your Article also distributes to their distribution network. From what I've heard, the distribution network includes blogs, minor article directories, and their own email distribution list. But the biggest benefit of using Submit Your Article is their ability to submit to EzineArticles.com, the most respected article directory on the web.
Because the folks at Submit Your Article take the time to review your articles before they send them out, this service has racked up some high marks in the industry and is possibly the reason they can submit directly to EzineArticles. They also submit to ArticleAlley, ArticleBase, GoArticles, IdeaMarketers, and SearchWarp. These are the other main players in the article directory market.
Submitting Your Article
Submitting your articles is an easy, seamless process. You enter your login and passwords for the top 6 article directories and then copy and paste your article into the form. You choose the resource box you'd like to use and select a schedule for your article to be distributed. That's the quick overview. Now let's take a closer look at some of the details.
After you enter your article into the first form, the system gives you the option to spin your article. If you've read my other article reviews, you know I'm not a fan of article spinners, but this one is a bit different and I reluctantly give it my approval. The difference with this article spinner is, it allows you to write your own material to be spun. For example, you can rewrite your title and several paragraphs and it develops combinations using the information you've supplied. It doesn't try to use synonyms for specific words that turn your article into an unreadable mush.
After you've submitted some alternate paragraphs and sentences to spin, test the article to double check that it makes sense. It's a good spinner as far as spinners go, but it's still a spinner.
Your next step is to set up a distribution schedule. You can submit your article immediately or schedule it to be trickled out over a period of 2 – 90 days. If you choose a longer distribution time, like 30, 60, or 90 days, it looks more natural to the search engines and helps a little bit in your search engine rankings.
The pricing depends on the number of services you'd like to use. The $47 per month version is a great place to start. It gives you a robust system with some extras that make your article submissions a bit easier. Or you can go for the gusto and jump into the $67 a month version which includes more bells and whistles, including Naked Articles. With Naked Articles you can submit articles with links included in the body and no resource box. This is a handy feature when your article is being submitted to blogs. It makes the blog post look like it was written by the blog owner and gives the post more credibility. More credibility means a higher likelihood of your links being clicked on. Whichever price point you choose, you get to try it out for 7 days for just $1; so you can make your decision without laying out a wad of cash.
I like this service. It offers a very simple, yet robust way to distribute your articles. The big plus is its ability to submit directly to EzineArticles, which saves you time. I even like the article spinner, because it allows you to develop spun articles that are essentially still your work. If I had to pick something about the system that could be improved, it would be the number of places that your article is submitted to. Where many submission services distribute to thousands of sites, Submit Your Article only distributes to hundreds of sites. Bottom line, though, it works, and your articles end up ranking highly in the search engines.
