SubmitYourArticle is what I like to call a hybrid article submission tool. While the concept behind it is not necessarily unique they have a few features that make them a pretty powerful part of the article submission war chest. When it comes to article marketing there are a few alternatives, you either blast your articles out to directory’s or you blast your articles out to someones distribution network. SubmitYourArticle actually brings the two together. They claim to have 100’s of websites or article directory’s within their distribution network, as well as email subscribers they send your articles too, this isn’t new or novel, in fact Unique Article Wizard does the same thing only they do it to 1000’s not 100’s. But what makes SubmitYourArticle different from UAW is that they also will submit your article to top article directory’s, or major article directory’s as they like to call them. Now they only have six (6) major article directory’s they auto post too, but they are 6 big ones. EzineArticles, Articlebase, GoArticles, ArticeAlley, SearchWarp and IdeaMarketers.
Spinning your articles when sending to a wide distribution is simply a must. SubmitYourArticle uses what they call Article Leverage to spin your articles. Basically when you add an article into your SubmitYourArticle queue you have the option of sending the same article everywhere, or using Article Leverage. The way Article Leverage operates reminds me of the UAW interface. You are asked for up to 5 variations of the title. Next you are asked for at least one additional variation of your first paragraph, and there is a more button where you can add more variations if you so choose, we recommend at least 3 variations at minimum. For subsequent paragraphs you are asked if you want to do sentence spinning or paragraph spinning. If you can, do sentence spinning, it’s much more effective for uniqueness, but for simplicity paragraph spinning is easier. Now while this is very effective for spinning an article, someone such as myself who has a spun article pre-written would very much appreciate a place where where I could simply copy and paste the properly formatted article in without going through all the steps of using the GUI. While I can see these being extremely valuable to someone who is not as familiar with spinning syntax and the steps involved, for a more seasoned person they may prefer the speed of copy and paste. So that would be a feature request of mine.
As mentioned above the one item that makes SubmitYourArticle stand out is that they are in essence a hybrid of an article directory submitter with distribution network submitter as well, and we like that. We personally use many tools such as MyArticleNetwork, Linkvana, Unique Article Wizard, SEOLinkvine, Backlink Solutions, ArticleSubmitAuto and more to distribute to a very wide network of sites, someone just starting out may not be able to pay all of the fees for so many services, so a SubmitYourArticle account would give you some wider dispersion beyond just article directory’s. The interface is also very simple and intuitive to use. As previously stated, it somewhat reminds us of UAW, but UAW could take some pointers from these guys on interface development because it is not as cumbersome (although UAW has redone their interface now). If you regularly promote many websites, SubmitYourArticle does have a Resource Box Manager where you can store a multitude of resource boxes, so as you add your articles you can simply select from your list of resource boxes. Another key feature of using Submit Your Article is that your article is published in their own Article Directory. I am not sure if this an advantage or not, but that is something they tout, but it didn’t look like that impressive of a directory to me nor do I recall seeing any articles from that directory showing up in niche SERP’s, but it’s a feature only available to SubmitYourArticle members. SYA also allows you to schedule your articles. You can select a distribution date too or select it to distribute as soon as possible. You are also able to set your distribution rate utilizing SYA’s Article Trickle technology which makes distribution look more natural. This is a very important feature that we always look for in submission software or services – you never want to blast your articles all out at once. The distribution target is set from 2-90 days apart so its pretty robust.
Well, it does what it states. We submitted an article and had it approved within 24 hours. They distributed to the 6 major article directory’s and to their distribution network, which are also comprised of article directory’s and websites over our scheduled time. Many people may dismiss SYA based on the 6 major article directory’s but keep in mind, those 6 directory’s are generally where you see 85% of your return on investment anyway. We also like the fact of the distribution network which is comprised of article directory’s and websites. However we received no proof that their distribution is of any value. You basically are submitting to 6 major article directory’s and a minuscule distribution network or minor article directory’s. We recommend UAW, MAN or SEOLinkvine over this at this time, and we will not be using this article submission tool at all going forward.
What We Don’t Like About SubmitYourArticle
While we found SubmitYourArticle to be impressive in its features and user friendly interface there is much room for improvement. The first item, which was pointed out earlier is that we would love to see somewhere we can copy and paste our pre formatted spun article into so we could move through everything much quicker. This may not be an issue for others, it was for us. We also were not impressed with the fact that they only distribute to 6 major article directory’s. Readers of our other reviews will know that we are not fans of the send your article to 100’s of directory’s, but 6 doesn’t seem like enough to us, in contrast ASA sends to 30, but doesn’t have a distribution network. Also the distribution network is only 100’s of sites, again, in contrast UAW claims 1000’s. But at the price of less than half of what UAW and ASA would cost combined you get the hybrid all in one. For those that are looking to save some money this would be a very viable solution, but if you can swing it, I would recommend getting ASA along with UAW or MAN, or all three would be better.
SubmitYourArticle is expensive at $47 for a monthly subscription. Not that $47 is expensive to submit to 6 directory’s and a distribution network. They do add the additional distribution network, but like we said we didn’t see any proof that did anything for us. A few weeks after submitting an article, we only found our article on 6 directory’s and 3 other sites. When there are services such as ASA or Jetsubmitter that do more article directories for the same price or lower, or MAN and UAW that do so much more for $47 and $67 respectively, we would say you can spend your $47 elsewhere and probably receive much better results.
** NOTE ** There seems to be some confusion on what is considered an article directory and what is not. Please see commentary from Steve Shaw in comments section. What we call article directory’s are the 6 they list as “major” article directory’s, what we call distribution network he refers to as article directory’s as well. So to Steve’s point SYA submits to 100’s of article directory’s within their distribution network, even though we didn’t see too many. In all fairness, we should probably run another test, since our test article had a typo in the title. One more point we didn’t make was that SYA does provide a wealth of training, thanks to Stewie for mentioning that.
