What High PR, DoFollow Article Submission Sites Can Do for Your Sites SEO!

Article submissions to DoFollow sites are a great way to gain one-way, inbound links that lead back to your site. You can gain a large number of these relevant links by writing unique articles and submitting them to the following article directories listed below. These dofollow sites will allow you to submit content that is related to your web site which will gain you the high quality backlinks without the NoFollow attribute attached to the link.

What this means for you, is that the article directory site will allow the GoogleBot crawler to follow your link and include it in its indexing for your site. If you are not familiar with the dofollow attribute, you can read the following article about the NoFollow tag to better understand.

Create unique articles that have the proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization and sentence structure in order to have the best chances to have your article accepted. Write articles that are between 400 and 1000 words in length.

Writing authentic articles, which are not considered duplicate content, will increase your chances of being found in the top rankings of the Search Engine Results Page, for your particular topic… here is what Google says about duplicate content:

Google Says: “Duplicate content generally refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar. If you syndicate your content on other sites, Google will always show the version we think is most appropriate for users in each given search, which may or may not be the version you’d prefer.”

Below are DoFollow Article Directory Submission sites I Recommend

Each link will open a new browser window!

  25. Giri Patel says:

    Hi, I have used almost all of them.. Can you tell me the comment link in hubpages is dofollow or nofollow..?

    • John Engle says:

      Hubpages attaches the ‘Nofollow’ attribute to link(s) within articles, but it still gets the attention of millions of viewers reading these articles which will bring traffic back to your site.

      If a person copies and pastes an article from Hubpages (which happens often) to put within their own site, and you had a link or two within the article that you submitted to Hubpages, you will now receive a link from the person’s site that copied the article that doesn’t have the ‘Nofollow’ attribute.

      I hope this helps.

  36. Lisa Reed says:

    Hi John,

    I came across this article when I did a Google search for “do follow websites with high PR”. It’s interesting that this post should be in number 1 position for that key-term search, considering the article is now more than 3 years old! How valid do you think these sites are today or are you planning on doing an update of this post? I thought Google were now heavily penalising these sites.

    (PS Shame that 90% of the Comments after the article are self-serving and do not contribute to the discussion.)

    • John Engle says:

      Hi Lisa,

      From what I am understanding is that Google is penalizing “Low Quality” directory sites that house ‘Link Schemes’… you can read more about this topic on Google Webmaster Tools under Link Schemes.

      Thanks to all the wonderful Spammers throughout cyberspace trying to find their place within the Google ranks; these spammers have been taking the BlackHat approach to gain more rank to their sites, instead of putting in the hard work that the rest of us have to do to gain our positions.

      Thanks to them, lessor quality Article Directory sites have been devalued slightly according to LinkDetox, #16 on that page ~ “Often these article directory pages were furthermore linked with spam links to increase their inbound links and thus make those otherwise useless pages more helpful.”

      If you are wanting to find ‘Dofollow’ websites for reading, then commenting with value like you’ve done here, follow this link:

      If you are wanting to gain Rank for your site, visit: 10 Link Building Tips – How to Get Authority Backlinks!

      I agree with you about the bunches of useless comments… many of them slipped through the ‘Akismet Plugin’ cracks. I need to go through them and keep the ones that actually give value for the post instead of the ones just wanting a backlink to their site.

      Thank You for stopping by and taking the time to leave a Value-Based comment.

      John Engle

      • Lisa Reed says:

        Very helpful response, John. Many thanks. I will check out those authority sites you recommend for backlinks.

        Best of luck getting rid of the disingenuous commenters looking for an easy backlink.

  40. Ali Mughal says:

    Of course you got a very common post….that will help for every webmaster
    Actually we always try to get dofollow link instead of nofollow but it doesn’t mean that we left nofollow backlinks, we can also get nofollow backlinks, but the most important thing, nofollow links give you a bit advantage but dofollow links are give you the big advantage for your page rank……

  41. frank says:

    Hi John,
    I am a beginner at this game, your information is great. Some blogs I have read recommend guest blogging in preferance to article submission, what is your take on this.

    • John Engle says:

      Hey Frank,

      I think it is great to guest post on popular, high traffic sites. If people read your guest post and like it, they may become a fan of your work and begin following you on your own website.

      When it comes to article directory sites, you will not only receive a High Pagerank backlink from their site, but you can receive additional backlinks from those that use your article.

      You need to know that article directory sites are ‘public content depositories’ where webmasters can search for, and select content to place on their own site. For this reason, you can receive additional backlinks coming to your site.

      I hope this helps…

  51. Panzer Kumar says:

    This was really excellent and informative, but pls take time to reply my comment. I must appreciate and thank you for your information on Nofollow directories, most SEO firms just ignore such sites, sites like articlesbase as you mentioned are extremely valuable than many other dofollow sites and infact having a balance between nofollow and dofollow helps getting SEO rankings in a natural way.

    But if i am allowed pls tell me some dofollow article sites that allows pictures to be added.(like Hubpages and squidoo) for i wish to present articles with pictures. If videos are allowed then it will be more helpful to my style of writing… Thanks in advance and keep up the good work…

      • Girish Patil says:

        Hi John,
        I have submitted my websites to various free directories. I wanrt to know whether my PR will increase even if no one visit those directories to click my link?

        • John Engle says:

          Hey Girish,

          Unfortunately your page is not going to gain any PageRank if you don’t have others casting a vote for your article… meaning that if no one links to your page, you will not receive any Link Juice (PR) from Google.

          If your page is found from a standard search and linked to because the person likes the article and recommends it to his readers, or a person visits the article directory site and uses your article on his site creating a backlink for you, then you have better chances of gaining PR, but there are still many factors involved.

    Thanks John Engle , i want to ask same question which Linux and Life asked and i got the ans… so thanks a lot

  73. Thanks for the post, it’s very informative. But is it possible if I submit the same article to all these article directories?

    • John Engle says:

      There is nothing wrong with submitting the same article to many different article directory sites.

      If it comes down to it, Google and other search engines will show the version they think is most appropriate for users in each given search.

      I hope this helped!

      Thank You for stopping by and commenting.

      John Engle – The On Page Optimizer!

    • Depends on which directories you submit to… if you submit an article to EzineArticles for example, you can’t submit that same article anywhere else — it’s against their policy. A lot of the good article directories only accept unique content; which means you can’t publish the same content anywhere else.

      • John Engle says:

        That is correct, it must be original not posted anywhere else on the Web… you can try and let some time pass, then post on other article directory sites if you’d like.

        Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

  98. Savina says:

    Thanks for the list. But why don’t you include hubpages and ezinearticles in your recommendation list? Is that because both require unique content? So does that mean the 7 you recommend do permit duplicated content? I don’t think so.

    • John Engle says:

      Hi Savina,

      Maybe you and I are referring to something different when it comes to the term ‘Duplicate Content’ published on Article Directory Sites.

      The other sites listed allow duplicate content in the form of copying your own written content and submitting it to their sites. I have personally submitted hundreds of articles, on behalf of my clients and my own articles, that were published on a blog and the Internet already and none of the published articles have not been turned down for duplicate content from any of the sites I have listed.

      HubPages and EzineArticles are highly recommended article directory sites, but they do require additional work by submitting content that is considered ‘Original’ that is not anywhere else on the Web.

      I hope I have answered your question.

      Thank You for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

    Wasted a lot of time commenting on “no-follow” links for about six months before I realized the difference; better late than neverm

    • John Engle says:

      Hey there Michael,

      Nothing wrong with what you’ve done, you’ve probably received additional traffic due to your efforts… if you are referring to blogs that you commented on, they are NoFollow sites by default to protect from Spammers.

      The only thing you didn’t receive is additional Link Juice from Google, but that didn’t stop the other major players from recognizing you.

      Thank You for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

    Hi John
    Thanks for the helpful article, I have read a lot of blogs & forums regarding articlebase and they say that Articlebase is a NoFollow directory. If this is true how useful is it to submitting to this directory. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.


    • John Engle says:

      Hey Keith,

      Boy do I feel like an idiot… you are right, ArticleBase is a NoFollow site, I’m not sure why I thought it was dofollow… thanks for the catch. I have made the changes on the page.

      ArticleBase has close to 10 million readers per month according to, which is higher than the other DoFollow sites, so if you don’t worry about the Link Juice coming back to your site, you might see a slight gain in traffic if done right.

      One thing I do each time I publish an article through and Article Directory site, besides a link returning from the Author Bio area, I put a ‘Related Article’ link within the content at the bottom. If people like your article and you mention that there is a similar one at the following link, they will usually click on it.

      I hope this has helped!

      Thanks for the catch about the site and for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

  114. Hey John,

    Interesting write up & very informative about the Do-Follow list. It’s funny on my own blogs for SEO purposes I put the rel=”nofollow” tag but never really understood it till now.

    Article Marketing Robot is a handy tool for article marketing. Fairly easy to set up & use, get’s massive articles out on a fast basis. I also recommend looking into a tool called “ScrapeBox” as it has a ton of useful abilities for driving traffic.

    Over a five year span of Internet Marketing I’ve learned how to get traffic & to make a consistent income online. If anyone is struggling I dont mind talking or giving additional information CMFARCHER@GMAIL.COM.

    Hay Jhon, Really Very Nice Post. I like This Post.

    I need permanent 2000 visitor Daily ? So which way do need to I follow ? How do I get my target? Please Give Me Some Suggestion. My Web Site Entertainment World

    • John Engle says:

      Hi Tafser,

      Unfortunately there is no magic pill, otherwise everybody, including myself would be doing the same thing.

      This is the way that the search engines level the playing field for everybody on the Web.

      I optimize a person’s blog everyday that gets close to 2000 visitors per day, but he has over 800 articles written, plus he is everywhere on the Social Networks and has quite a following of people that like the articles he writes.

      You can look in to Pay Per Click as an alternate, but if it’s not done right you will go broke.

      I hope I have helped.

    Can I Insert More Articles For One Website From Same Account. Is It good For SEO purpose??

    • John Engle says:

      I’m not sure if I understand the question… some sites will allow you to submit articles from different websites to one account, but each article directory site has different rules, so you will have to read their guidelines.

      As far as SEO, whatever links are pointing back to your site is a good thing and what you need to be working for.

      Hi Jan,

      Article Directory submissions are a great way of gaining traffic back to your site if done right… make sure you inspire the person to want to visit your site with another related article, or give them such high quality content that they are encouraged to see what else you have to offer.

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment… it is appreciated.

  126. DoFollow is usually sought after by “hunters Backlink” to increase their Pagerank Blog, and this is very important to build quality sites

  127. James Crown says:

    Really awesome work you have done on this blog. It really makes easy to find out high pr article submission websites along with alexa rank and visitors. Thanks for provide me this list.

  128. Thank you for the list of article submission sites, i’ll be jumping onto those rightaway. However, can you address the common knowledge i am encountering now that states that although a ‘homepage’ may have a wonderfull all singing and dancing PR, the inner pages, typically where our links will be, may not count for much?

    • John Engle says:

      What you are saying is true… the way the search engines look at the page you are linking from takes a lot of factors to be worth much… the ratio of links leaving the page, the popularity of the page from other links in, visitors, etc.

      1 High PR back link can be worth more to your site than 1000 low quality back links… if a person can get a link back to their site from a page that is highly ranked, example a PageRank of 5, yet there are not too many links leaving the page, then you are Golden… unfortunately with Article Directory sites, you will need to build the credibility on that page before your link is worth much.

      The whole point of Article Directory sites article is to give you options for placing your content and receiving traffic from those sites, you cannot worry too much about any link juice coming from there, but people have a tendency to relate HIGH PageRank to a high quality site, so they know they will be putting their content on a site that has millions of visitors per month.

      Thank You for stopping by and commenting, I hope I have helped!

    • John Engle says:

      Hey Steve,

      I am not sure what is going on with TheFreeLibrary either, so I have just moved on to other directory sites to submit my content to.

    Best regards.

  154. Nice writeup John. How do you recommend anchors be placed within the articles themselves without looking ‘spammy’ or too much like an advert? Is there a sweet spot somewhere? i.e placing an anchor in the beginning/endof the article..? Any particular tips in this regard?


    • John Engle says:

      The subjects that you speak of are covered in the following two articles, Anchor Text article, and my Keyword Density article, but I will give you a nutshell type of answer.

      There is no particular sweet spot for linkable anchor text, when you speak of the beginning/end of the article you are referring to making sure your keyword or keyword phrase is placed somewhere in there, along with sprinkling a few variations throughout your article.

      If the Directory site allows anchor text with-in the content, then you will need to place it where it seem to flow with the article.

      Of course placing a linkable, relevant keyword or a keyword phrase that leads back to your article is the best optimizing method.

      I hope I have answered your question!

    I don’t think high PR websites do anything by themselves. I bought up several PR5 and PR6 domains so I could link back to my website and improve SE visibility, and gain some PR. It did nothing thus far, but I am still waiting for the PR update.

    • John Engle says:

      Hi SEO Services,

      You have the idea for Anchor Text linking, so you are on the right track to shoot for inbound links. One thing that you need to keep in mind about the high PR backlinks is, are they relevant to your site, and also how many other links are you sharing the link juice with?

  163. Hello, this is a great list for non-adult related sites. If you are trying to do SEO for an escort companionship related business, (which is classified as an adult site) (even though there can be more nudity on some online lingerie magazines sites!), most of these sites won’t accept articles. So eventhough they are nofollow, it’s like between a rock and a hard place to actually get the article accepted in the first place. I still appreciate this post though, it provokes thought in trying to build back links for a companionship escort service business. thanks.

  164. thanks for the great list my first time visited in your blog.

    Article sites are definitely some good high PR sites to get some dofollow links from. Another good one to check out is eHow, but is nofollow, but it will still give you a good SEO boost

    • John Engle says:

      Hey Donny,

      You are right, just about any article you submit to a site will give you traffic and exposure, whether dofollow or nofollow. As I state in my 7 Day SEO Boot Camp for Bloggers, under the Lesson # 7 “Getting Unlimited Traffic to Your Site”, a link is a link, and a link from a PR1 is still better than no link at all.

      Thanks for stopping by Donny!

      Hi Heather,

      You will most definitely improve your site’s exposure and give you more traffic by submitting articles to these sites. If you are not familiar with submitting to article directories, please be sure to read the editorial/submission guidelines before submitting your articles.

      Hi Ayanna,

      Thank you for the nice words… this post is of course written with the Google Algorithm in mind that seems to follow the “NoFollow” attribute more than the other big dogs. It seems that now days we need to focus our energies on being ranked by Google, and the others will follow suit.
