A video released by Matt Cutts of Google explains why mass article submission to content farms is not proper article marketing and search engine optimization. In this video you will discover what Google does not want and why article submitter software should not be used in your marketing.
Matt Cutts was recently asked the question :
"Do you recommend article marketing as an SEO strategy and how are the backlinks treated when other websites republish the same article?"
Before viewing the video I want you to keep an open mind and understand that many marketers only push article marketing software because they want to make a sale. They are not looking after your best interest or trying to help you as they may claim. I know that may seem like a harsh statement but the facts are below that can't be denied.
The video will discuss article marketing as it is generally accepted in the marketing arena. It is not talking about effective article marketing with the usage of effective and proven marketing tools. I know 90% of the article marketers on the net teach how to do article marketing the wrong way.
I am not here to convince you that you have been taught wrong though. If after viewing this video and the factual stats below you still believe mass article submission to hundreds of content farms is the right way to go, then by all means keep doing what you are doing. Your competition that understands the truth will thank you.
So you do not misunderstand what Matt Cutts is talking about in this video, below I will paraphrase what he is talking about. He is not calling an all out war on article directories but he does state that these sites are usually littered with spam articles that do not have high quality written content.
He is stating that mass distributing the same articles to content farms and blog networks is what Google does not want. This includes those top article directories as many marketers call them. It also includes blog networks such as Unique Article Wizard and My Article Network.
You will hear Matt say that he would lean more towards high quality content and links within social media websites. This is the same thing Google has been saying for years, it is even posted on their own blog about quality content. Below you can take a look at stats on the proclaimed top article directories from a trusted SEO site, SEM Rush.
As you can see for yourself these stats show drastic drops in keywords and traffic from Google since the panda update. Even after months these sites still have not had any increases. Many other proclaimed top article directories have suffered the same fate. Some are trying to build back up such as articlesbase but even they have suffered great loses in traffic and keywords.
High quality content from quality websites is what Google is looking for. You see the stats and you heard the video directly from Google itself.
