    Avoid using article directory sites. Instead submit your articles to networking sites such as LinkedIn or MosaicHub. Do NOT submit an article to more than one site. Many site also include a "share" button so your article can be shared with others on Facebook and/or Twitter.

    Submit one article on one directory is good not harmful.

    If you're submitting the article in order to get backlinks, realize that any link you get yourself has been greatly devalued at Google. Like the posters above have commented, no more than one article per directory. Plus that article should be unique and of high quality.

    With all that being said, you should consider whether it's worth it to put that much effort in just for a link - a link that may or may not even hold weight. If you do it, you should focus on being helpful to readers, because whether or not Google gives you credit is questionable. However, if done properly and for the right reasons, it can help with your online reputation and expand authority in your niche.

    Hope that helps!

    you can submit your article on 1 article site that is not harmful if you are submitting one article in many sites then duplicate content found.

    If you submit unique article to a site then it is good and give you good back link if you have placed a link there. You should not submit the same article on other sites and that will harmful for you.

    I agree with above. Be careful about article sites. Google is going after them and if they see you are over using keywords in your bio they will add manual penalty. Youc an still use them but add generic terms rather than keywords.

    There is no such directory submission set limits. However, all submitted links directory should not be relieved through the automated software. Submitted in the regular directory at regular intervals to produce the best results.
