Article Marketing is one of the best ways to build quality backlinks for your website. It also helps improving the PR along with bringing some decent traffic towards your website. Most of the SEO professionals spend hours of time searching for high quality article directories to build backlinks.
After the launch of Google Panda most of free article directories were heavily hit. The main reason was, most of such directories worked as link farms accepting poor quality articles. Few article directories were penalized for not being active and had duplicate content thus lost their quality. Also directories which ranks higher right now can loose its shine in the future. So it has become very important to do a proper research work to find the right article directory for article marketing.
To ease out your work I have come up with a list of top free article directories with High PR and Authority. The best thing about these free article directories are as follows:
- Provides Do Follow Link
- High Page Rank
- High Traffic with Excellent Alexa Rank
These are the prime factors when it comes to quality backlinks. This will help your website or blog rank higher and also will generate high traffic. It is always advisable to have 10 high quality backlinks than having 1000 backlinks from low quality websites.
