EzineArticles.com Celebrates 10 Years!

Today marks the 10th Anniversary of EzineArticles.com – but we’re giving YOU the present!

On this day in 1999, EzineArticles.com was launched as an online Expert Author community where authors from around the world could share fresh, high-quality articles and make them readily available for limited niche syndication by ezine publishers.

The site was envisioned to be a matching service for ezine publishers seeking supplemental content for their next email newsletter and expert authors who wanted to share their expertise in exchange for exposure, credibility and qualified traffic referrals back to their website.

Today, the site’s incredible success is obvious. Now the #1 article marketing website in the world, EzineArticles caters to almost a quarter million Expert Authors from across the globe. The site enjoys over a million unique visitors every day and delivers an average of 225,000 clicks per day back to our members’ websites. Website Magazine recently ranked EzineArticles.com #18 on their list of the “Top 50 Websites for Professionals” in their November, 2009 issue.

Our Anniversary Gift to You

While it’s true that EzineArticles has a lot to celebrate, we felt that the people who are ultimately responsible for our success, our members and visitors, are the ones who deserve an anniversary present. So we’ve designed this custom EzineArticles wallpaper, complete with our popular mug and coffee, just for you.

Click on the link(s) below that match the resolution of your monitor(s) to download the appropriate wallpaper. Then select that file as your new wallpaper and begin enjoying your new EzineArticles background with our sincere thanks and compliments. We couldn’t have done it without you! :)

I know you took this site over from the original owner several years ago. You have changed the world of publishing with what you have created here since that time. I have no doubt that your site has turned me into an author, something I had dreamed of for the previous 20 years.
Thanks for all you do.

Good memory.

It’s true and the site was nearly dormant from 2002-2004 following the dot com bust that we all experienced… and then EzineArticles.com was completely scrapped in July 2004 and relaunched on August 4th 2004… something I expect will never happen again in its lifetime.

For those who remember our original model… you used to have to cough up your email address in order to read the full article. That’s crazy in today’s standards, but it wasn’t crazy in 1999.

All things evolve and hopefully we all improve together. :)



I forgot to add: I have now shown hundreds of students how to utilize this site to build their businesses and to change their lives as well.

Thanks for the wallpaper and congratulaitons!

I’ve only just begun learning this business and was introduced to EzineArticles only a few weeks ago. But it was quickly apparent what a magnificent ‘tool’ this is. Thank you for making it easy to learn as you go.

I thought of a potential suggestion. Why not make Widgets by category here, regardless of author. This way ANYONE with a website that wishes to have information for their visitors can be constantly updated with new articles. Perhaps, 10 articles per widget. That would be cool. For instance, if someone had a website on Health Care focusing on skin, they could get the widget for that category and put it on their website. It would drive more traffic hear and help the authors too. Everyone would win. Just thinking out loud, just an idea. Continued success, EzineArticles Rocks!

This already exists:

Just select a category from the drop down without entering in an author name, click “Get the code for your website” and it’ll work.

I see the widget code updates instantly, but the widget visual example doesn’t update instantly, but it’ll update within 15-20 seconds. Sorry about this weirdness… We’ll look into that.
