    Submityourarticle.com

    I'm not thinking of using this, but I'm curious as to what the supposed benefit is and if people are actually paying for it:

    Seems like another money-sucking enterprise with no proven benefit. Anyone familiar with it?

    I wouldn't even click on a link with that title. I hate those trashy places that desperate people who want to be writers dump bad articles on. "Submit your article"! Are you sh*tting me. And I bet they're getting submitted too...great articles worthy of such a site.

    Just for yucks I clicked on one of the pieces in their "article directory," then googled a couple lines. There are at least two other identical copies of it on other websites under two different authors' names. I wonder who plagarized who.

    It's article-churning, based on the flimsy premise that you can build website traffic by littering the Internet with articles that link back to you. The deal here is that search engines ignore multiple versions of identical articles, so they're offering some kind of software or algorithm that alters articles every time they're submitted, to trick search engines into thinking they're different articles.

    Blech.

    As of July '14:
    We're still serving remaining members for the distribution of articles to our list of email publishers and our blog network. Other than that, the SubmitYourArticle.com service is now closed down...
    Yet another victory for casualty of Google's refined algorithms.
