One of the most difficult things to do for an online article submission site is to keep the best authors, and get rid of those peddling junk online, over-hyping, or posting rather thin and weak content. Far too many “get-rich-quickers” pay per install affiliate are putting up article content that is PLR, article spam, or derivative work “spun” by an artificial intelligent software program. So, one has to ask the question; Are article marketers who sell trinkets and crap causing legitimate “real” business owners to leave the top submission article sites?
Unfortunately, the answer is a resounding; YES. How many have left would be the next pertinent question to ask; most seems to be the answer; that is to say that most legitimate business people, with real businesses in most categories have stopped posting new articles. Why?
They have left because they see that in their categories and industries that all the other top-contributors above them are “Adsense Sites” and trinket sellers. So, why would anyone who has 20-30 years experience want to contribute more articles? Well, you could say that they should know that very few people actually browse the categories, most come directly from the search engines.
Most real business people do not know this because, they do not understand how these article directory sites really work, rather they just know that their articles are online and they are getting recognition and exposure. But when they find themselves compared to, or around nonsense, it is a huge turn-off.
When someone selling an Affiliate Product, who posts 400 articles to a category, and you click on the link to their site and find a “hype page” and a picture of a software box on how to do DIY home improvements and that the individual posting is nothing more than an online marketer who is a laid off mortgage broker who lives with his mom and is 22-years old, college dropout selling it is at the top of the Top Authors page in that category you can see the problem. The author has never even picked up a hammer in his life, or skill saw.
Thus, the 30-year mason and contractor sees that and thinks, this is no place for me. Although he himself may have contributed 30 of the most excellent articles I’ve ever read in my life on the topic before leaving the article directory site. So, you see, the spammy articles are driving away “real” talent, “real” experts, and those with 20-years experience in their industry.
Still, we see now that the Affiliate Marketers tell us; “look at all the content we bring the top online article website, because we recommend our sign-ups post there,” yes, but look at the all debris they are bringing and all the problems “some of them” bring and look at their cheesy websites that “many” many of them have, and would you begin to look at the over-hype, the misrepresentations in advertising law, and borderline fraud? Ouch. I wouldn’t touch “some” of those folks with a 10-foot pole.
Indeed, as the most prolific online article writer, wish boatloads of real experience, I am not sold on “many” of the affiliate marketers out there, and whereas, I hear and see some of their comments and claims; I find them problematic. In fact, I say, if it bothers Affiliate Marketers that a few of the top online article sites are cracking down on them; then those folks need to tell your sign-ups and associates that quality is the KEY at top submission directory sites and that they must only post top-notched articles.
There are far too many folks selling garbage online, far too many folks over-hyping, and far too many folks taking short-cuts, cheating, and using this derivative software here. I am completely troubled, and want to make sure everyone knows that my articles are written by me, and well-researched. Please consider all this.
