    It appears that the Google Panda update has killed this method off.

    The question then is whether the links from articles submitted to article directories are still helpful for ranking your own website.
    As Habbakuk said, it is pretty hard to assess this because most sites have a mix of links from different sources.

    So it appears that there is no definitive answer to whether article marketing still works or not...........

    Yes it still works... I have websites which have no other links but those coming from Article directories only ... They are getting my desired traffic and have SERP for Anchor text I used in Article marketing.

    Moreover the SERP and traffic came after Article marketing only .... so I have tested it and it does work...

    It is one of the Oldest working SEO technique and yes You have to do it right way to get it to work

    So do you post a unique article to each directory?

    Or do you post the same article to multiple directories?

    Writing unique articles is not an easy task. It requires brainstorming and great vocab. I think people post their article in just the same format or with minor changes around multiple websites. I don't think there's any genius out there who could write 10 unique articles on a daily basis.

    One of the major point of article submission is to post your backlink in with the article. So basically as long as backlinks are weighted towards your rank article marketing will work.

    I spin them before submitting with at least 40% uniqueness...

    I can do that ... It is a easy job to write 10 unique article a day if you know how to do that ...

    Hi,

    I am not from the same field but I have read many posts and contents on article marketing. It`s true that article marketing plays an important role in your business development. People get information by reading articles and do sale purchase to make it base. Articles works as an employee who guide to customer that what is good in our business and how you may avail things. I think you got my point.

    Keep in mind where you put or submit your article... if you put your quality article in low competence site... for sure can't bring any value.. if you submit to article sites that have good reputation, for sure your site get value in the eye of google

    Just found this article that covers some of the stuff discussed in this thread:
    Article Marketers - Lay the Duplicate Content Myth To Rest Once and For All | Internet Marketing and Publishing

    Main points are:

    1. Dupe content penalty is a myth
    2. Article spinning is not necessary - publish first on your own site, then publish unchanged on article directories

    I think Google will look into which site publish first... if site A publish first than site B.. site A will be on top of SERP of certain topic rather than site B

    I'm not so sure about that.
    I think it is whoever has the most/best links wins.

    Therefore if I copy your article and get more/better links to it than you - my page will rank higher than yours.

    Would love to know if anyone else agrees with this?

    I was talking about indexing rate. If all site have same content, but site A the ones who produce first on the net, before site B, site C and moreover site copied the content and publish.I don't think Google value the site the same way in term of indexing rate.. Besides, lets talk about this.. for example, there are 10 site which have same content and same copied content and they are struggling to make their website appear on first page of Google by doing backlinking and so on...

    so lets say they are targetting 'my cute cat' keyword.. then if i type the keyword on Google... do Google value all the 10 site the same way... what a boring if all the results features the same articles and the same word on the first page Google. From no 1 to no 10 of page result feature the same article due to all the 10 website struggle doing backlinking so as to be top on Google pages... if Google implement algo like that what a pity for them.... the internet user want a VARIETY results... not the same article and the same words appear on top 10 result of first page Google.

    So here it come the important of unique content.So the page results are variety on contents...

    I had submitted some articles some days before and I realized that it really works as it really helps in getting more traffic and helps gain your site better rankings in search engines. Content distribution and wiring helpful articles for internet marketing is something which can never be outdated for getting better ranking and quality traffic.

    I agree. I certainly don't agree with people who say that it depends on which article was published first. That's total obsolete SEO to me. It's all about links.

    I can verify this to a certain degree. Not about ranking per se, but "value", as far as Page Rank goes anyway. Now we all know that when you publish an article anywhere on any article website (I use ezinearticles) your article is a Pr 0 page. With a number of my many published articles, I was making links to them for a while. About half a year later, I happened to check those articles, and found they were PR 1, but only the articles I had made links to. I can only assume that if there was an exact copy of this article posted before, it wouldn't have ranked higher than mine only on the basic on being "posted first."

    I don't think backlinks is the only factor though. I believe if the website is a strong website, it helps. For example, I would bet in some cases that if I posted an article to ezinearticles first then to a strong wordpress blog, the wordpress blog one would rank higher, especially since it would show up on that blog's homepage, which is usually much stronger.

    Hi,
    Article marketing is an important thing to promote your business. I am not from the same business but I read in different articles that it is an important thing. It helps you out in generating traffic for your business and also fulfills all marketing needs of a business. It should be the focal point for any business field in online marketing trend.
