Over the last 10 months or so I have really got into doing infographics for our clients. At the moment they are really popular and generally getting way more links then regular linkbaits.
By practicing I have got pretty good at marketing infographics for our clients and am normally getting very good results.
Submitting to infographic sites is a great way to kick start your infographic marketing campaign and there are plenty of them out there. The thing is that when I have been going through infographic site lists around the web I have had problems. The problems with the infographic sites on the lists are, either a/ the infographic site has been abandoned and not updated in months, or b/ the infographic site is very popular and so overwhelmed with submissions that it could take weeks or even months for your submission to be approved or finally c/ the owner of the infographic site wants cash (and sometimes a ridiculous amount) to review your submission.
Through hard work testing I have figured out which the best free to submit to infographic sites are that will actually approve your submission in a timely manner. Here are the top 10:
Visual.ly is without a doubt the king of infographic sites with a whopping PageRank score of 7/10 and more traffic then any other infographic site. All you have to do is sign up, click on the submit page and then follow instructions. Your infographic will be published straight away with a link or two to your site.
2/ Design You Trust
This design blog and community is an excellent place to submit your infographic with a PageRank score of 6/10 and high levels of traffic. All you have to do is register for the site, login and then create a blog post including your infographic and a link to your site – the post will appear right away.
3/ Visual Loop
This infographic blog powered by Tumblr has a high PR score and publishes new infographics all of the time. The site is operated by a guy called Tiago and he has published every infographic I have ever sent him and got back to me with an email to let me know each time. All you have to do is send him an email to submit.
4/ Business 2 Community
Now this PageRank 5 business community blog isn’t strictly an infographic site but it does accept and publish lots of them as you can see here. Before you are able to submit you have to apply to be come a contributor, but it doesn’t take long, I was accepted within a day or two. You do need to write a 300+ word description to go with your infographic if you want it to be accepted.
5/ Infographic Directory
My own infographic blog that was hosted on a WordPress.com domain until recently. Because the site got quite popular and received almost a quarter of a million visitors in the 1st few months I decided to take it a bit more seriously and purchased Infographic-Directory.com. I try to approve a good few submissions each month.
6/ Love Infographics

8/ Video Infographic
This one is run by infographic designer Brian from Nowsourcing and has a PageRank score of 3/10. All you have to do is click on the submit infographic button and fill in the form. Brian is quite choosy and only approves really decent infographics.
9/ Cool Daily Infographics
Another PageRank 3 infographic blog that publishes lots of infographics in a wide range of categories. Click on the submit page and fill in the form to complete your submission. Cool Daily Infographics has featured quite a lot of our work.
10/ Infographic File
This infographic site only has a PageRank score of 2/10 but it is very new so it may well go up in the future. To submit your work register, create a profile and then click on “upload an infographic+”. My submissions have all been approved very quickly.
