Article writing is fast becoming the way to raise your online visibility with paying a fortune. I’m really pleased to have reached the heady heights of ‘Diamond Author’ with Ezine Articles – and from someone who doesn’t really enjoy writing that’s a small miracle! You’ll find Ezine Articles is the most popular article directory on the planet, it’s ranked very high in Google. This means if you have an interesting, original article you can find yourself also listed high in rank engine searches.
However, to acquire prestigious ‘Expert Author’ status there are a few important rules you will have to follow to ensure your articles are approved by the team. Let me share some of their guidelines so you can have a better chance of your article being accepted immediately.
The EzineArticles team read every article, this is not an automated process, which means human beings look over every article submitted and ensure they all fit into their high standard before being authorized for submission.
My 10 Top Tips to get your your articles being accepted by articles directories:
1. Do not copy the work of others. Your articles should be original and offer good quality information.
2. Write your articles with the intention of providing your reader with information they can find useful and beneficial.
3. Do not just rehash PLR (Public Label Rights) articles; your work should be original.
4. The main section of your article is for you to ‘give’ not to ‘sell’.
5. Use the resource box to promote your services or goods, but do not go overboard.
6. If you are using other quotations from other authors, make sure you give them credit.
7. Limit the number of keywords, remember your article should not be just a sales pitch.
8. Make sure the body of your articles is delivering what you promised in your title.
9. Do not submit any articles that contain illegal mp3 files, instructions on how to make bombs or steal, or expressions that promote hatred or profanity or racism or bigotry, or contains pornography or exploits children or animals or any human, or any other unlawful activities.
