About Article Directories

Article Directories are websites that collect short articles (typically 400-500 words) from authors looking to syndicate their content online. Submitted and approved articles are categorized and published within the directory and are typically made available for other websites to publish them as well, as long as author credit is given. Most Article Directories provide a author bio box where the author can link back to their own website and often even allow for a certain number of outgoing links within the article body as well. A well written and informative article published on a quality Article directory can potentially be picked up and published by multiple other websites, offering an attractive and relativity easy way to increase backlinks and traffic to the authors designated website. For this reason, Article Directories have often been used by internet marketers and SEOers in the practice of Article Marketing. Article Marketers often-time submit articles to multiple Article Directories and may use Article Writing Services, Article Spinning Software, Article Directory Submission Services, and/or Article Directory Submission Software to aid in the process.  In recent years, the effectiveness of using Article Directories as an SEO method has declined as Google and other search engines have updated their search quality algorithms. A similar SEO strategy, the use of Article (Blog) Networks, has also proven to be effective in the past, but recently many of these networks have also been challenged with recent Google algorithm updates. There are hundreds of article directories online today, listed below for user reviews and comparison are the most popular and widely used Article Directories currently available.
