Why Does it Help to Have Articles
Published on the Web?
All authors are given credit for
their writings and a link to their web site and / or email
address with detailed contact information at the bottom, authors
can also add a short bio to the bottom of the article. Published
works provide name recognition for the author. Links to
your website help it immensely in search engine rankings, and
bring in additional traffic to your web site.
The Family & Marriage Counseling
Directory is one of the most prominent sites in the search
engines for its subject matter. Often times, members of the press
have come to me after visiting The Family & Marriage Counseling
Directory, to ask for names of therapists who may be interested
in public speaking or appearing on television shows. They look
at this website because it is one of the top ranked sites in the
search engines. That same prominence also makes its links more
Where Would My Article Be Published?
All articles are linked to from
the homepage of
The Family & Marriage Counseling Directory. We are also very
fortunate to have started a new website in February, 2007,
Talk About Marriage.
Talk About Marriage is a public
forum that provides even more opportunity for therapists to gain
recognition. Talk About Marriage grabs the attention of many
visitors to our site who are still too reluctant to contact a
therapist. Many post anonymously on the site about their
problems and receive feedback from other visitors.
Therapists can register on
Talk About Marriage and post articles in the "Articles" section.
Keep in mind that these articles need to be approved before they
will go live on the website. Approval on Talk About Marriage
usually occurs within 24 hours, and these articles must be
posted by either the therapist or someone representing them.

What Are the Article Requirements?
There are no length requirements,
although thesis length papers have been difficult for us to
publish in the past due to the formatting involved in changing
them to html, so expect a longer delay for these types of papers. Most articles
we publish are usually 250 - 1000 words. Articles must
be well written, and original. Original meaning written
by the person claiming to be the author and not published
elsewhere on the internet at the time it is submitted. It's
acceptable to publish the work on another website after it
is published on ours, it's also acceptable for the work to have
been previously published in print.
Articles will be reviewed by the
Webmaster, and there is no guarantee that your article will be
