Best Article Directories

Article directories can be a great way tool for gaining some traction for a new webpage or brand, generating buzz about a product, and generating back links for your site. But not article directories are created the same. Creating articles directories became immensely popular among webmasters so their effectiveness lessened. Unlike the days when article directories were few and far between, the vast majority of today's article directories are a waste of time to submit to since they have minimal traffic, poor moderation, and pass no link equity.

Instead of wasting time submitting your articles to article directories that won't do you any good, make sure to focus on the sites that have the potential to reward your efforts. This list has been added to help determine which article directories are the best of the bunch.

Awesome article directory. I immediately started getting the traffic after publishing my article.

High pagerank. Good traffic, articles get approved within 2 days. Also they have not strict guidelines like ezine...

Very good website. Hats off who shared it. It is dofollow

They don't seem to be accepting new articles since the latest one is from 2015 - Mcflapy

Was better before moving to no-followed links, but is a directory that seems to do well with syndication. Posting an article here will probably result in your article showing up on a number of additional sites as well.

The new website looks great but I am a bit confused in regards to what type of website this is, it seems to be a list website now that accepts articles. But it has been over 4 days since new articles were added? It be good if they accept articles at some point. - Mcflapy

Recently this site seems to have fallen into favor with Bing. Articles submitted here have been known to rank very well for reasonably competitive keywords within days of being submitted.

Been around for a while and ranks well. Negative points for making the software that powers it free for anyone to use and spawning thousands upon thousands of generic and worthless directories.
