How do you ensure thatrepparttar quality of your content remains high? The only way possible which is human intervention. Each article is read and reviewed to be sure it hasrepparttar 145641 quality we expect at Article Depot. Most webmasters have a lot of pride for what is being distributed in their name so forrepparttar 145642 most partrepparttar 145643 majority of articles are approved within two hours.

Of allrepparttar 145644 articles that have been submitted to ArticleDepot, which one sticks out as your favourite?

In general some of my favourite articles are those where people show a passion. Recently we had an article where someone basically meant to vent out their frustration with returning something in a store. What followed was one ofrepparttar 145645 funniest and well written pieces I have seen in a long time. If that person applied that passion to all of their writing, they would probably be quite successful.

What are your tips for writing a good article?

Write on what you know or have a passion for. This comes out inrepparttar 145646 article and gives it a quality you just can't fake. An authoritative article is better than a rehash every time.

Are backlinks from your site SEO friendly?

Absolutely. This was a major issue I saw with other articles sites. Most of them either limitrepparttar 145647 location ofrepparttar 145648 links to areas that do not make sense or pass them through their own site in an effort to stop any benefit going torepparttar 145649 webmaster. This goes againstrepparttar 145650 ideals of a world wide web and at Article Depot we are very sensitive aboutrepparttar 145651 importance of links from both a SEO perspective and a visitor one.

Why should someone submit their article to your site first?

They should submit an article to us first because ofrepparttar 145652 quickness in which our articles are spidered (Currently between 2-5 days),repparttar 145653 SEO friendliness of our outbound links which are all static, andrepparttar 145654 fact that we have more and more webmasters coming to Article Depot to get content for their sites.

Most people submit articles to gain links to their sites. What, if any, other benefits do you see from posting articles to your site?

Its also about exposure. Many times in peoples' rush to just get links they forget aboutrepparttar 145655 benefit of having control overrepparttar 145656 content that surrounds those links. Most of our submitters see a signifigant rise in conversions (whether that's a sale or a signup) because people are more likely to click on a link when it is surrounded by content they are interested in. Footer links will never go away butrepparttar 145657 real power has always been in aboverepparttar 145658 fold natural links.
