If you’re sitting on a mountain of content that you’ve been wanting to submit to EzineArticles.com, do it before the end of the month.
That’s when the site will start limiting writers to no more than four links within each article—two self-serving links and two other links. (A self-serving link is a link that you own or control.)
Christopher Knight, who owns the directory, explains that existing articles will be grandfathered. That means the links can remain intact, unless you edit the article.
Why the change?
Frequent user feedback confirms that they think articles with 3 self-serving links are perceived as spam…We want to continue to attract high profile expert authors, many of whom say they’d like to be seen in similar company. High profile expert authors almost NEVER include 3 self-serving links.
Wise Publicity Hounds won’t simply recycle existing articles from their own websites. They’ll submit new content to keep their topics up to date and keep the search engines happy.
If you struggle coming up with ideas for articles, I’ve compiled dozens of fill-in-the-blank headlines that will spark an idea or two. See my article “Headlines for How-to Articles.”
Now start writing!
