About Article Content King
Article Content King is a free article directory which I set up way back in 2005. I got the script as a part of a source code package. It’s the largest of all the sites that I own and the site that has COST ME the most money.
The script provided was called “Your Own article Directory”. Unfortunately, the code sold to me (and several thousand other people over the years) was insecure. This is the main reason why the site cost me money. It was hacked several times before I finally found a good php programmer to secure it. After finally fixing the script, I made the security patch available for free at http://www.securearticlebeach.com.
Since then I have spent a lot of money developing the site. I’ve adding social features, an affiliate program, revenue sharing, author profiles, SEO URL’s, article moderation systems and more. We have over 60,000 members registered at article-content-king and over 150,000 articles in the database. But despite all this, the site is more of a labor of love than a cash cow.
It’s not that the site does not make money it’s that it is a lot of work to moderate all those articles!
Article Content King has an Alexa rank of around 20,000 as I write this and a Page Rank of 3. It’s almost 6 years old and is listed in DMOZ.
If authors meet certain criteria, we allow them to share the revenue with the site by earning credits to display their own ads on the site.
Article Content King covers over 260 niche categories so what ever you are promoting we will have a place for you. (If we do not have a suitable category for your articles, let me know and I will add it).
