There are both advantages and disadvantages to using article submitters.
- You can submit
one article to hundreds or thousands of article directories with just one submission depending on what article submitter you are using. Submitting an article to this many directories, by hand, will take you a long time.
- With the extra time saved using an article submitter, you can develop your website and or write more articles.
- With article submitters, selecting the right category can be difficult, because not all article directories have the same categories. This can be a problem, because some directories will delete your article if it isn't submitted to the correct category.
- Another problem with article submitters is that some will not allow you to place hyperlinks in the article body. This is inconvenient, because not all article directories disallow hyperlinks within the article body and these links are often useful to the readers of the article.
I personally do not use an article submitter. I submit my web hosting articles and other articles by hand. The only reasons are as follows: I have not found one that can select the correct category every time for every directory and I like to place hyperlinks within the article body when allowed.
