the types of articles we feature. We will not accept bulk submissions. We will not publish articles that appear on multiple sites.
We prefer short articles. More than 500 words
tends to be too difficult to read online. We also are looking for general information that appeals
to a wide audience. We have an international base of visitors. About half of our readers come from
the USA, 8 percent live in Canada and smaller percentages are from the EU, England, Australia, Indochina
and other areas world wide.
Seasonal information is more likely to catch
our attention as are articles that fit well with sections of the directory. For instance, articles
which focus on Mother's Day,
other late spring & summer holiday topics as well as travel and sports articles relevant
to the season are currently being added. We prefer evergreen features, these are articles that age
well, are general in nature and will provide good information to readers who find them in the archives
even a year or two after publication.
As stated, we do write most of the articles
in house. We also receive hundreds of submissions. While we review each piece submitted, we do not

back to your site. If your article is added to our features, we will include a live link back to

If your site uses these ad formats we will not be able to include any link with the article.
Due to the SEO push to add articles to thousands
of sites as a search engine optimization technique, we were forced to temporarily suspend accepting
articles for review. The search engines have adjusted their results to reflect this newest spam
technique and we can go back to business as usual. Please do not submit any articles to Chiff.com
that would be considered duplicate content. Duplicate content is an article that appears elsewhere
online or is very similar to any other article that is already available online. These submissions
will not be added to the directory and will just be deleted. If you would like to submit an original
article, please use the contact form.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND DUPLICATE
ARTICLES TO THE CHIFF.COM DIRECTORY.
