List of Article Submission Sites & Article Distribution Lists
The following table contains several hundred article submission sites and article distribution lists. These are ALL the sites I’ve used to achieve my top ranking (for DivineWrite).
Article Submission Sites

Article Submission Sites
Article submission sites are websites that act as ‘article banks’. They allow authors of articles to post their articles on the site for free, and they allow webmasters who need content to copy those articles for free (in exchange for a link to the author’s website).
I’ve tried to order the article submission sites by their Alexa ranking, with the most popular at the top. This way, if you don’t get to the bottom of the list, you’ve still managed to submit your article to the most popular article submission sites (giving it more exposure).

|Topic Planet||Y||Y||Quite detailed guidelines.|

|ArticlePower.org||Y||Y||Article Title: maximum 150 characters. Article Body: maximum of 15,000 characters or roughly 5,000 words. Author Bio: 400 characters or roughly 60 words. We strongly recommend that authors submitting to ArticlePower.org copy and paste articles from a basic text editor like Notepad or TextEdit. Following this suggestion will ensure that paragraph breaks, line length and other basic formatting will be properly handled by our submission form. Copying and pasting content from applications like MS Word can and does result in a variety of formatting problems. The reason for this is that MS Word and similar applications use non-ASCII, sometimes invisible, characters that are copied with article content into our submission form, causing articles to appear very differently from the way they were submitted. Keeping the above in mind, it is not necessary for authors to use html tags for specifying font size or to create paragraph and line breaks. Use of HTML should be minimal and we suggest html tags only be used for creating live links to sites, services or products. Our submission process does not automatically create activated links. You must do this.|

Please use the resource box to link back to your site. Please limit resource box links to 3 or fewer – Articles containing more than 3 links in the resource box will not be approved.

We do monitor article submissions and we will reject content that doesn’t meet this requirement.|
|Worthy Articles||Y||Y||No links in the article body are welcome as well. Please use the resource box to link back to your site. Articles containing more than 3 links in the resource box will not be approved.|
Article Distribution Lists
Article distribution lists serve a similar function to article submission sites – they just operate differently. Instead of visiting the site and posting your article, you simply email your article to the group, and all members automatically receive it (assuming they’re subscribed to received emails). Most article distribution groups are Yahoo groups.
This list is not ordered by popularity; it is alphabetized.
Each article distribution list / group will have its own conditions and formatting requirements, but this Article Template for Article Distribution Groups will be suitable for most.
IMPORTANT: Before you can email your article to a group, you MUST:
- have a Yahoo Group membership (or Google, MSN, Topica, etc.)
- be signed in to Yahoo Groups (or Google Groups, etc.)
- be a member of the group
- in most cases, subscribe to receive the group’s email
