Most of us across the web use free article directories to gain both traffic and backlinks for their website or blog. Most are likely to sign up for a bunch. But I have realized that some will let you turn in articles with just a log in id and password while others want your home address. So I was wondering why would an article directory need your home address? What are they going to do with it?
Well some article directories will send you cheap things from time to time like glasses, t-shirts and pencils with their company name on it. Are you going to use any of that stuff? Of course not.
I could understand if the article directory were going to buy your article by check then it would make sense. But I do not know of any article directories that pays.
Then there are directories that sell your address to advertisers that will send you junk mail and stuff. Have you created an account for a bunch of article directories and discovered an increase in junk mail? That is where it is likely to come from.
They definitely not coming over your house to visit you. Eat dinner and become you best friend and talk to you. So why do they need your address? Who really knows the answer but I would not give them my home residence until I checked them out farther.
They are an article directory service and they should ask for fresh articles and not your residence. The deal is that webmasters give you articles and in return you gain one way links to your site and some new visitors. Where that writer live should not matter. If they don’t like your article then they can easily reject it and they do not need your address to do that. They are not going to call the article cops to my home right?
So the next time your thinking about signing up for another article directory service that ask for your home address just do a little research on them first. See what others have to say before you give up your address.
Would you like to use a free article directory that does not ask for your address or require you to sign up as a member? Then see more about it here at article directory. Or go directly to it by going to article directory service and get started. For other directories see website directories.
