Terms of Service

Authors

  • Every article submitted must be your own work. A ghost writer may be hired, but you must secure exclusive rights to the article/material before you submit it.
  • Only submit original articles that have not been submitted to other article directories or have not ever been published. We are very strict with this rule and will check for duplicate content in Google.  Duplicate articles will not be accepted.
  • We cannot offer any guarantee as to whether the article will be taken on and published. The inclusion of the article in the article directory solely rests on our decision and our decision alone. In the event that the article is published, the period for which it remains on the directory is again at our discretion.
  • The category, to which the article belongs to, may be changed at our discretion if we find it to be wrongly or mistakenly classified.
  • Once an article is submitted to us, we reserve the right to:

o   Publish it via an RSS feed, where it may or may not be picked up by other websites for syndication.

o   Publish it in any of our newsletters, be it real time, daily or weekly.

  • The article directory is nothing more than a free service extended to publishers and authors. It does not remunerate anyone for submitting articles, nor does it pay anyone when any of their material is published. The only guarantee we can give is that you will receive all credit due to you and that the resource box will be left intact.
  • Do not include any affiliate links within the article body. If you have an affiliate program that you wish to promote, you must first link to your website via the resource box and then have that redirect to the affiliate website.
