Being the owner of several article directories it never ceases to amaze me why so many articles are submitted that will never get accepted. A great deal of authors obviously spend a lot of their time writing these articles, presumably for the reason that they want to get them published, so why not go the whole way…. and make sure that they get published and stay published?
We receive a huge number of new articles daily, so why would we publish those authors that do not follow a couple of simple rules?
The following is a list of various reasons why we donot publish an article. Articles that make these mistakes will all be deleted by article directory owners.
No Full authors name:
A simple request to be given the authors name often results in the author just using initials, their company name, and even a mix of both. How many times do you think we see the word “Webmaster" as the authors name. We want a name which we can associate with the article, also it must be an article that you have written, or has been written exclusively for you!
Misspelling within the title: (Check your title!)
The title of an article is essential; it is how the large Search Engines like Google locate the article. Placing a badly spelt article title does nobody any good. Make certain the title makes sense and is written in English.
Get yourself a “unique” title! Do not copy another person’s title, or change the words around. Make the title unique to you! You are able to check it with Google once you have thought of it by going to their Search area and searching like this, “My New Article Title”. If other articles have already got that title then think of something different.
Duplicated and badly spelt content:
Do not just change the title, and then use identical content inside. This is a sure way of having all of your articles deleted…. even the best articles will get deleted. It is so easy with auto spell checkers to check that your article has all of the correct spelling. Spend a small amount of time doing this, again if you don't, your article will get deleted.
An article must be informative to anyone who is reading it, and normally it would amount to around 500 words or more. A very common mistake that we discover is that many authors submit an article with too few words in it. Make it informative and donot repeat your self.
Inserting links inside the wrong areas:
Most article directories tell you where it is possible to place links, and how many you can insert. Normally, these need to be placed in a place which has been specifically designed for you the Author. It is normally called the resourse box. It may be called the Authors Box etc. This is where we would like you to write something about yourself, your website/s, and that’s where you enter the link to your sites. Our directories allow as much as three links here. Do not put links in either the Title of the Article, the Summary of your Article, or the Body of the Article.
Selecting wrong categories:
Selecting the wrong category for your article…. means that you really should not have bothered to write it! If you are searching for visitors to your site about a “Home Business” then it will do you no good whatsoever if it is listed under the category “Home Improvements” or another category that has nothing do with what your article is about. Do not just pick the appropriate category, but also pick the the correct Sub-Category! The more specific you can be with your articles, as well as the categories that you use, the greater chance you have of your articles being found.
Links must relate to the content:
If the links that you insert into the Authors resource box are about “Travel” then ensure that your article is about “Travel”, and not to a site which is completely un-related.
Mass submissions of the same or similar articles:
It is [quite a} quite a typical mistake to take an article and “Spin it”! What this is “supposed” to do is to enable you to submit multiple articles, all slightly different. I agree, it does change the article in a small way. However, we will delete any articles that we receive which we consider to have been “spun” in this way. We feel that it serves no useful purpose to anyone to have a lot of copies of the same or “similar” articles published.
Sending an advert, not an article:
If you want to advertise your company, or your website, then write a fascinating Article that other readers will find either enjoyable or can learn from. Do not send an Advertisement for your company or website! Sending in something like “Buy A Honda Car From Essex Motors”, will result in getting it deleted. However, if you write something interesting about the Honda Car, and then add your details, website etc. in the Resource Box, it will not be deleted.
