Twice nowadays I received invitations from article directory owners to join their new websites. In numerous ways I am flattered, but in other approaches I virtually want to mention that they have their function cut out for them. As an author of numerous hundred articles online [I count on to add between one particular and two hundred per month for the foreseeable future] I have some suggestions for write-up directory managers. If you are interested in understanding what they are, please read on. Benchmark Ezine Articles My major site for submitting articles is with EzineArticles.com. Why? Volume, service, post penetration, search engine optimization, blog, forum, email updates, site navigation, cutting edge technologies, to name some characteristics. This internet site is one particular that is highly active where authors know the manager, Christopher Knight, and hear from him regularly. You get the feeling that Ezine Articles is going areas...and quick! Ask Permission Initial Some of my articles have appeared elsewhere, with out my permission. I guess getting more than 400 articles on-line provides me extra special consideration, possibly more than a person who has 40 articles. Nevertheless, I need to say that one web director who took my articles has apparently provided up the practice and with out notification to his authors. Lets just say I wont waste my time with somebody who doesnt at least care sufficient to respond to my emails! Distinguish Your self From The Pack Thanks to a new report software program system that hit the market more than the summer, lots of folks are snapping up this easy to use program and beginning their own directories. Competitors is a good factor, but a shake out will occur. If you want an individual like me to take interest in your internet site, to direct my clientele to you [I have plenty], and preserve me interested, your site shouldnt even appear like any of the rest of them. I am not saying you shouldnt use the new application, but please take it to the subsequent level and make it work to the max. Build Up Web page Rank Heck, my personal site pulls down a page rank of six. I want you to match my sites strength or at least come close. Some of the newer internet sites are not but ranked and tiny or absolutely nothing has been indexed by Google. BTW, Google is it for me. MSN and Yahoo are alright, but Google rocks. Get more on clicky by navigating to our dynamite wiki. Right after these three...nada! Details, Information - The large image of obtaining articles out there is excellent, but I like to see some interest paid to the fine information also. Ezine Articles has not a single, but 3 resource boxes for authors to choose from each of which consists of info currently keyed in by the authors. For fresh information, you should have a peep at: understandable. I know not of one particular other directory that has even a single. Hmmm... Where Are You Going? - Where is your article directory going? Do you have RSS feeds, submission agreements with other web sites, special characteristics that are frequently getting rolled out, and so on. A weblog exactly where we hear from YOU, the manager, is extremely valuable. There are other locations I am positive that I havent covered. I am not singling any directory out and I do wish you the greatest in your endeavor. Maybe as your website grows Ill sign up, but for now I am really busy writing articles and submitting to just a few pick sites, like Ezine Articles. Thank you for permitting me to vent!.
