I just read an interesting blog about eZineArticles.com by Maria Langer. Maria is the co-author of WordPress 2 which I like a lot although it is becoming slightly out of date now. Here is the link on Amazon — it doesn’t get great reviews but I think they are a little harsh. It helped me WordPress 2 (Visual QuickStart Guide)
Anyway, Maria has written many articles and she decided to submit some of them to eZineArticles.com which is a great way to build website links and establish credibility. Its a valuable marketing technique. It first it worked well for her but over time her articles started appearing on what looked to be porn sites! When you submit articles to eZineArticles you give up some of the rights to your work including permitting other blogs and websites to use the articles (with the proper attribution) but there appears to be no restriction on the kind of website that can do so.
It is something to watch out for if you are interested in publishing but don’t want your work to be associated with a porn site.
