Articleranks 2.0 Review

Articleranks 2.0 Submit NowArticleranks 2.0 is much like a blog network where people can submit articles to a on topic network of blogs and get backlinks to their site if the owner of the blog accepts the content also if you are a blog owner you can get targeted content free to add to your site this is a win win substation on both side.

Articleranks 2.0 has also made some great improvement to the site by adding social media sites to their network.  As we all should know now that Google and probably other search engines are now using social signals in their ranking algorithms to determine which pages are to rank the highest.  Having this option can really give you the edge you need to success all in one system.

ArticleRanks 2.0 Memberships Plans

If you never used articleranks you should because they have 3 membership plans for you to choose from when joining articleranks system.  Here are the 3 membership plans you can choose from when signing up for the first time.

1. Free Account – You have access to articleranks distribution Network of Blogs. Also you can add your site of ftp logins information or email address and have social accounts added to receive free content.

In the free account you may only choose 1 top level category for free and additional category there is a fee.

You can also have 6 domains you can add to the articleranks system. There is some disadvantages of have a free account and that is low priority distributions which means that you would most likely be on the bottom list when receiving content for your sites.

Another disadvantage is that you have to earn credits by allowing other article members to post their content on your site with a backlink so you must have a dofollow blog or you can buy credits if you prefer.

If you buy credits from articleranks the minimum amount of credits you can purchase is 10 credits which will cost you $20 and it cost 2 credits for article publishing.  This also another cost with depending on which payment option you choose also.  There are at the moment two payment processors 2checkout they charges 5.5% at checkout and Skill (Moneybookers) they charge 2% at checkout.

How to use ArticleRanks 2.0

If you are a beginner and just getting into article marketing articleranks is the place to start off with blog networks.  Articleranks is probably one of the easiest blog networks to use to me, first you are going to need to create an account with articleranks sense they have a free account I would suggest starting off with that account first unless you have many sites that need backlinks to them.

Once you have your account you want to hover over articles and just below click on Add Article.  You will come to a screen like the graph below here you will be adding your content or spin content.

Articleranks Article Submission


Next you need to choose your category this is one of the most important parts making sure your content goes to the most relevant blogs that are on your topic.

After picking the right category you need to pick which countries you want your content to be posted in normally I will do a search for English speaking countries here’s a link from Wikipedia this will help you to choose the right countries.

After picking the right countries you have the option to pick a date and time when your articles will be distributed.

Articleranks gives you the option to add a article save draft then spin your content with their in-house content spinner.  If you prefer not to use their spinner I would suggest taking a look at these content  spinner  tools like thebestspinner  Spinchimp, or spinrewriter.

But if you are short on time and just want to copy and paste spin articles into the system, I would check out these two services that are available and ultra spinnable articles.

There is a limit of only 3 contextual links inside your article so make sure every time you spin that article you are going to have 3 links placed inside of the article this is a mistake I made when I first started using articleranks some of my articles where being placed on sites with no links in the article rookie mistakes.

Making sure you have the right syntax this is one of the minor problems you might run into with articleranks they use the syntax {sentence 1~alternative sentence 1~alternative sentence 1}.  If you have ! and ? make sure they are inside of the syntax like !} this will save you a lot of headaches.

One of the most forgettable thing I always seen to forget is the tags make sure you add related tags.  Next Distribution Limit (zero/blank = unlimited) and if you have blogs added to the articleranks system make sure to check Do not publish this article on a site that I have submitted option then you check the option letting articleranks known that your are the legal owner of the article and your done.

How many banklinks will you receive from a spun article?

According to articleranks research you should receive around 20-300 backlinks depending on which category you select and the number of categories you select will determine how many backlinks you receive from your submission.

ArticleRanks Cons

What I don’t like about articleranks is the syntax that they use I think it is very inconvenient for marketers to convert their spin article to a different syntax.  Doing this may cause some confusion and produce errors or mistakes while submitting articles.



I must say my experience with articleranks 2.0 has been a good one and I would recommended this blog network to any member trying to increase their ranks in the search engine.  In my past experience I was receiving about 50 – 60 backlinks per article submitted with just the Free membership account.  I have to say that is pretty good if you only paying $20.00 for 10 credits and it only cost you 2 credits to submit a spin article to their network of blogs.
