Finding good content online for free can save any blogger a lot of time and work.
But since Google declared war on them, today those traditional sources of article directories and article banks are basically dead.
How to get free articles for my blog if article banks don't work anymore?
The free articles you can still find in article directories like Ezine Articles, Go Articles, iSnare, and ArticlesBase are tempting. But they can hurt your blog as much as help today.
This is because Google no longer appreciates the kind of poorly written, low-quality, spammy articles that tend to be available in those content farms. In fact, Google actively discourages the use of these kinds of articles because they are not unique.
Google's mission is to reward its searchers with the most relevant, precise answers to their search engine queries.
But most article directory articles are available for free. That’s precisely because their writers want as many people as possible to post the same article (often full of promotional content and backlinks) online.
Unfortunately, that leads to "duplicate content" which is another way of saying there's little value to such an article because there are several or even dozens of copies of it floating around the Internet.
Instead, Google prefers unique content that gives the #1 "best" answer to a query. Then they will reward that canonical article with a higher search engine ranking for search queries about that topic.
In fact, if you rely on free articles, Google may even penalize your website and lower its search engine ranking.
So, to get articles for your website, try reviewing the free listings on GuestPostArticles.com.
Professional writers, marketers, and guest bloggers post in its guest posting marketplace to offer free (or sometimes paid) articles that you can post on your own blog.
Even better? You can get exactly the types of free articles you most want to publish on your website by posting a "Guest Post Request" here.
Just use the quick form to submit the type of topics that you would like to receive guest posts about for your blog or website. Then the service will promote your personalized request for Guest Posts on its website and in its e-mails worldwide.
It's a smarter, easier way to find quality free content and new, original articles for your blog or website.
