However, not all article sites are created equally. Here are my 6 tips of things to look for when you’re choosing which directories to submit to.

Tip #1 – Make surerepparttar 150164 site allows for SEO - Do they allow you to choose your own keywords? Ifrepparttar 150165 directory doesn’t allow you to choose keywords, you could possibly lose some SE traffic because of untargeted or less-targeted results. Entering your own keywords also helps with searches withinrepparttar 150166 site, ifrepparttar 150167 search operates on keywords.

- Do they put your keywords and article summary into meta tags? Yet again, this ability is great for SEO. It allowsrepparttar 150168 search engines to index your article more effectively, giving yourepparttar 150169 best traffic you can get to your article.

- Dorepparttar 150170 major search engines indexrepparttar 150171 site regularly? If a site isn’t indexed regularly, your article will take awhile to show up in search results. Not a huge deal, but it could delay some traffic.

Tip #2 – Make surerepparttar 150172 site offers RSS feeds - Do they allow your article's content to be syndicated? RSS Syndication is a big thing right now, because it makes it very easy for another site to feature your article’s title, body, and author. If a site doesn’t offer RSS, you may not want to waste your time posting there, as you probably won’t get as much traffic from them.

- Is syndication by category only, or can more parameters be submitted? Some sites allowrepparttar 150173 RSS feeds to be customized by category only. Others allow syndication by any combination of category, submission date, and author. This is very beneficial to you, because 1) your article could remain on a syndicated “archives” page, whererepparttar 150174 site getsrepparttar 150175 specific date RSS feed, and 2) you can have all of your work syndicated – sites can choose to be fed only your articles!
