Article marketing has long been a great way to build backlinks to any website. It’s been an SEO and Internet marketing mainstay since the very earliest days of the Internet. But Google recently updated its algorithm and really slapped the article directories hard. In fact, it beat down some of the biggest article directories on the planet. Now they’re trying to make themselves whole again.

I can’t help but wonder if article marketing through directories is ever going to be what it was. I highly doubt it.

Instead, I rather think that article marketing is going to change. It won’t die. You can still market your blog or website through articles, and you should. But I wouldn’t recommend that you distribute them through article directories.

So where should you distribute your articles? Here are four places I can think of off the top of my head:

  • Google Knol
  • Squidoo
  • HubPages
  • Other websites and blogs within your niche

Maybe you can think of a few other places to distribute your articles. But I think these are the top places today for publishing articles and for conducting article marketing. What will be the best places ten years from now is anyone’s guess, but we don’t do article marketing for ten years from now. We do it for today and tomorrow.
