Article Database - When A Good Thing Is Copied


Word Count:
661


Summary:
Article Database is the name of my article directory and I think the name I have chosen for it says it all.


I may be wrong in feeling the need to write this article. It is possible the names similar to that of my website
were developed first or completely without having seen mine; however, I am correct I believe that I have
good reason to write this article.


Have you ever seen how people copycat the success of others? This is a very common practice on the
Internet. A case in point may be my article directory Article Database.

Article Body:
Article Database is the name of my article directory and I think the name I have chosen for it says it all.


I may be wrong in feeling the need to write this article. It is possible the names similar to that of my website
were developed first or completely without having seen mine; however, I am correct I believe that I have
good reason to write this article.


Have you ever seen how people copycat the success of others? This is a very common practice on the
Internet. A case in point may be my article directory Article Database.


I started my article directory Article Database at http://www.article-database.com in mid to late January of
2006 and by late March received a Google PR rank of 3 for www.article-database.com and PR4 for
www.article-database.com/news/. I have since done searches and I can easily find my site when searching
Google for article-database. However, to find Article Database seems to be a bit more difficult.


It appears to me that when people want to increase their SEO they go looking for website names that have
already received a PR from Google and then try to capitalize on that websites success. I am not positive
about this but I do believe that articledatabase.org came after article-database.com as it is also copyrighted
with 2006. They may have more articles than I do. Did they actually get these solicited and published to the
site directly by the authors? I am not saying that they didn't but they may have added the articles themselves.
That could explain why as of June 14, 2006 they do not show a Google PR of their own.


Such is also the case with articles-database.com. I am not sure when they launched and maybe they were
before me but I am wondering why they have no Google PR? The only difference in the URL of their site
and mine is that they used the word articles rather than article.


I attribute my PR ranking to many things. The first of these is that I ran a publicity release using a popular
publicity release software. Secondly I found some authors and contacted them and started receiving authors
contributing directly to my site. After this there were several articles on the site, so I submitted the rss feeds
of the categories with the most articles to some of the most popular rss feeds such as MyYahoo, Newsgator,
Google, and many others. I then created a WordPress blog about writing and article marketing, and
submitted it to several blog directories and rss feed directories. Then I started making posts to the blog on a
semi-regular basis. The authors who contribute to Article Database are also notified when new articles are
posted. In addition I use the same software to send a newsletter to everyone who has signed up as an author
or user of my system. I also posted an article to several article directories that I titled Article Directories -
Ten Great Reasons To Submit Articles To Them.


Am I complaining about other article directories having the same name as mine? I don't believe that I am
complaining; rather I am just pointing out the strange fact that when someone sees something working that
they often try to copy it, and that is more than true on the Internet. Often a website name or URL is made to
be similar in order to get some type of search engine advantage or the benefits of potential misspellings of
the original website.


I believe that in my own way, I am saying that if these and other websites saw the Google PR of my blog
and decided to name their article directory after mine, I take it as the sincerest form of flattery. I am sure that
some one in cyberland will grab up other domains based around the terms article database. I am glad that I
am one of the first.
