Go Articles, I've never had a problem with. There are editorial guidelines, but your article gets added pretty quickly.
Article Alley are OK, it took about a day for them to approve my article.
I heard yesterday from Ezine article Submission because I had too many links in my article (that was posted a week ago). They have an exhaustive list of guidelines that you should read through prior to sending anything (that applies to all of the directories). At least EAS were kind enough to let me know to change my article rather than rejecting it outright.
Here is one:

Another one to add (ironically stumbled upon on this site):
Free Content Articles Directory and Search Engine for your Ezine or Website - iSnare.com
On the same note, does anybody know of any online press release directories? I know they exist, but I need one to announce my changes.
usefull lists here for me.
Another free article marketing site to consider is http://www.leadmaverick.com. The free version allows unlimited content postings (including podcasts) plus an RSS feed specifically for the content posted.
On the down side the free account includes ads, you can't change the logo and you can not include hyperlinks (features of the paid version). It does come with some reporting features on viewing patterns.
The nice thing is that all of the articles you post include an RSS specific to the what was posted. You can then use this RSS feed in ITunes (for Podcasts) or other sites for additional content syndication. All postings are automatically sent to Ping-O-Matic.
Not bad features for free...considering I created it
Lead Maverick - Creator
PS Also check out PR.com: Directory of Businesses Jobs Press Releases Products Services Articles - Find Companies. Great TTL to Google. (And I did not create that one...)
Leadmaverick, I am unsure if you read my original post correctly. I am looking to compile a list of article directories that readers can submit their articles to.
But all I find on your website is lead generation. The only articles are about your company.
Please clarify. Are we on the same wavelength?
