Free Article Directories List for SEO – Updated

Even in this post-panda world there is a place for link building through articles. If you have unique and high quality content, then there are a lot of free article directories out there that will help you promote your business or website.

That’s something that we talk about in chapter six, the link building chapter, of our SEO for WordPress book.

But which directories are good and which are junk? There are a lot of lists of free article directories out there, but most of those lists are out of date, or they don’t have the needs of SEO in mind. You need directories that won’t give you too much of a hassle. You need a directory that will give you a lot of PR juice through a fair number of dofollow links, and you can’t have them throwing in a lot of editorial back talk.

That’s why the TastyPlacement team has compiled a list of the easiest SEO article directories out there. This is all current information, with the directories listed from most to least suitable. We had to look at over 600 directories to find 80 that are suitable to your needs. We’re posting this resource for free because we feel that you shouldn’t waste your time with article directories that won’t give you dofollow links or will be careless with your valuable content.

So give it a shot and let us know how it works out! We’ll update this post every month, so keep coming back!

    Please could you add Education Tay (http://www.educationtay.com) to your list of article directories. The website has just created a log in for users to contribute instead of the owner writing everything. Do follow. mostly articles and a few jobs website, resource area in main body. Can post two live links if they wish

    Thank you for the list of resources.

    Education Tay

  2. Hey Michael,

    I’d appreciate it if you could take a look at Galoor.com. We’re not some article script, fly-by-night directory. We’re a high quality article directory that was launched (soft) back in late April and we’ve been growing rapidly. We get our authors a lot of traffic, but we are pretty strict (no duplicates/syndicating, good grammar, etc).

    Hopefully you’ll consider us.

    Thanks,

    Clint

    Hi,

    http://www.articlespaces.com is a WP based article directory which is human-controlled in ensuring NO spam being submitted to the system. All articles added to our system are also ‘scanned’ and optimized for SEO. If you are looking for high quality backlinks in return for your quality articles, then ArticleSpaces is a MUST. Post your articles, share your knowledge, and become an expert in your niche. We are in for the long-haul!

  4. Hi Michael,
    Thank you for the list of article directory and the information.
    Please add
    4BN.co.uk – Free Article Directory. Submit your articles.
    4BN.co.uk is Articles directory that allows free article submission.

  5. How many of these sites are really easy to post on?

    Some of these sites I have tried have very stringent condition to post the article which is really difficult for someone like me to satisfy….

    Please suggest.

  6. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try
    to get the hang of it!
