75 PR/Article Submission Sites to Generate Inbound Links

SMS Text

Article submission sites do not have as much authority and link value as they used to, but they can still help build your link portfolio and give a temporary boost in rankings.

Certain sites like EzineArticles and PRweb tend to rank better organically which can help increase traffic, while other article sites are better for gaining high PR links.

A Few Quick Optimization Tips

You want to be careful with submitting the same article to multiple submission sites because you could potentially receive duplicate content penalties.  If you do decide to submit the same article to multiple sites, take the time to change the article title, along with a few sentences in each paragraph to make it unique enough for the search engines.

Make sure you use SEO best practices.  Use keywords in the article title, use different variations of the keyword/phrase throughout the content, optimize the url (if possible), deep link to inner pages on your site (if possible).

Now to the list…

    Cool list Mark. Quick question. Do some of these sites charge a submission or membership fee or are they all free?

    Thanks.

    Nice list Mark, a few I need to look into on here.

    As far as a duplicate content penalty, I don’t think anyone needs to worry about it for PR/Article submission sites. As far as any penalty, I think you’d have to worry about two things:

    1. The sites above detecting the submission you’re giving them is already live somewhere else. Some can delete your article or block the submission if they detect it’s already a published piece.

    2. The engines seeing 20 of the same articles posted and only letting the first 1-2 actually appear in search results/pass value.

    Thanks again Mark!

    Mark, thanks for the resource, i am not too keen on article marketing as I have not found great value in the past but I will try again following your advice to alter titles, etc… do you know by any chance if any of this article sites accept stories in languages other than English?
