    Thanks Dale for this excellent list!

    I`ve been taking a marketing course and they have underscored the importance of article directories. Most recommend ezinearticles.com over all others.

    I found the list below by doing a search for "article directories." It has some of the same ones as your list, but for those who want even more options, enjoy!

    Hi,

    Great post and some of these are really ones of the top articles directories over the web, though many of these have the problem of being too slow to review your articles. For that a lot of time I like less established articles directories that do manual review, but still review articles faster. Actually as well I have started one that we usually succeed in reviewing articles in less than 24 hours which has been picking up to speed lately and getting some Google love and nice amount of hits. The Articles Directory I started is Electrons Online Articles Directory. Please check it out and hope it will get to your list if not now in not too long from now.

    Regards,

    Erick

    Thanks for the list.
    I did not see my favorite article directory site
    http://largearticle.com
    Largearticle is dofollow seo friendly article directory having a pagerank of 2.it is dofollow means Google count it as backlink.
    My article got indexed in search engine google within 2 minutes after publishing.Also review takes less than 2 days.
    Anyway thanks for the list.It is just my personal opinion.

    Not to take the wind out of anyone's sail but Article Directories have come a long way since the Great Write up of this article. Take for instance ArticleCloud.Com it has all the benefits of the top article directories with much more to offer such as all Do Follow Backlinks and Absolutely NO ADS. It is truly an Author Friendly Article Directory.

    Great lists . Suite101 – This is the big kahuna of article directories based on its PR ranking, time on the web, and the fact that you get paid ad revenues for your work.

    There are literally thousands of article directories on the internet. Listed below are the 10 best, according to search engine results, Google PageRank and Alexa traffic rankings.

    1. EzineArticles.com is a matching service between tens of thousands of expert authors and millions of readers & publishers looking for expert solutions to millions of problems. EzineArticles is owned by highly-respected entrepreneur Chris Knight, and is arguably the king of article directories. EzineArticles has been around since 1999. PageRank: 6    (http://EzineArticles.com)

    2. GoArticles.com is owned by Canadian publishing giant, Jayde Online, Inc., and has been around since 2000. PageRank: 3 (http://GoArticles.com)

    3. WebProNews.com is an articles and newsletter database covering a variety of ebusiness topics including SEO, SEM, Affiliate marketing and ebusiness site design/development. WebProNews has been around since 2000. PageRank: 6  (http://WebProNews.com)

    4. ArticleDashboard.com bills itself as "the premier source of free content for newsletters, ezines, and websites." The site also offers free syndication services for authors and publishers. ArticleDashboard has been around since 2005. PageRank: 6 (http://ArticleDashboard.com)

    5. Searchwarp.com is one of my favorite article directories, because it feels more like a friendly community than an article directory. It`s very colorful and vibrant. Another reason I like it so much is because they publish the author`s picture along with their articles. In fact, I liked their concept so much, I borrowed it when I started my own article directory. Searchwarp has been around since 2002. PageRank: 3 (http://SearchWarp.com)

    6. Isnare.com is an outstanding article directory owned by Glenn Prialde of the Phillipines. Isnare has been around since 2004. PageRank: 4  (http://Isnare.com)

    7. Buzzle.com features its own directory, free e-mail, message boards, news, articles and short stories online. Buzzle provides information on health, travel, science, technology and lifestyles. Technically, Buzzle is an online news magazine. But you can submit articles to them, once you pass their approval process. Buzzle has been around since 1999. PageRank: 5 (http://www.buzzle.com/authors/become-author.asp)

    8. AmericanChronicle.com is another one of my favorite article directories. Actually, it`s a family of 21 different article directories. Like Buzzle above, it`s techically an online news magazine. And also like Buzzle, you can still submit your articles to them, once you pass their approval process. AmericanChronicle has been around since 2004. PageRank: 5  (http://www.americanchronicle.com/notices/submit_info)

    9. IdeaMarketers.com is a great article directory that will not only let you submit articles, you can build your own ezine as well. IdeaMarketers is owned by highly respected entrepreneur, Marnie Pehrson. IdeaMarketers has been around since 1998. PageRank: 5  (http://Ideamarketers.com)

    10. ArticleCity.com bills itself as "your one-stop source for free articles." And not only can you submit articles, you can submit press releases as well. ArticleCity has been around since 1999. PageRank: 6  (http://ArticleCity.com)

    One last thing: I get a lot of e-mails from people asking me if they should use software to auto-submit their articles to hundreds of directories at a time. In my opinion, no you shouldn`t. Here`s why. New article directories come online everyday, and many disappear as quickly as they arrive on the scene. As a result, you have to update your software on a regular basis. In addition, while quicker than manual submissions, it still takes time to set up the software and fill out all the forms for your articles.

    Also, many article directories do not accept or approve articles that are auto- submitted, and they have sophisticated detection methods in place to catch violators. For best results, manually submit your articles to the "10 best directories" listed above and you`ll be just fine.
