Articles: My Top 10 Article Directories for 2006

Article Directories have become one of the critical tools in your seo strategy however not all article directories are equal. Over the last few months my team and I have been evaluating over 700 Article Directories and from those we have assessed what we consider our top 10 article directories.

We have looked at a number of difference attributes when assessing the article directories including the following:

1. Number of People Reading the Articles
2. How Quickly Articles Are Approved
3. Whether you can access your article statistics
4. Level of Support and help from the article directory owners
5. The Terms of Service
6. How Easy it is to submit articles

After reviewing each of these core attributes the number one article directory on the internet is certainly hands down Ezine Articles. Managed by Chris Knight this site is the epitome of outstanding service to article writers. Ezine Articles runs a program in which writers with over ten approved articles have their writer rating upped to a Platinum Status which enables the writers to have their articles approved within 24 hours.

If article directories do not approve articles regularly then the whole value of the article will never be realized and that is why we have given article directories that regularly approve articles a higher position in the top ten then those who do not.

Finally out top ten article directories for 2006 are:

Number 1: Ezine Article (www.ezinearticles.com)
Number 2: Article Dashboard (www.articledashboard.com)
Number 3: Go Article (www.goarticles.com)
Number 4: Search Warp (www.searchwarp.com)
Number 5: Afro Articles (www.afroarticles.com)
Number 6: Amazines (www.amazines.com)
Number 7: Article Teller (www.articleteller.com)
Number 8: Article Alley (www.articlealley.com)
Number 9: Article OnRamp (www.articleonramp.com)
Number 10: Article-Gems (www.article-gems.com)
