    Though blog and article involves writing content and posting, but there is a huge difference between them. Blogs are not seen as content farms, but article directories are. Guest posts are almost always of higher quality than articles; mainly because guest blog owners want unique content,

    Article submission sites are rated below guest blogs by search engines for various reasons. Article sites have been filled with duplicate content and they usually accept articles on any topic. On the contrary, a guest blog is moderated by the blog owner and only good quality articles are accepted. These blogs are related to certain industry and therefore have relevant content on related topics only which gives more value to readers. This makes guest blogs much preferable than article sites.

    Both article marketing and guest posting involves writing content that will be posted on someone else’s website. Both an article and guest post will almost always have a back link to a URL of the writer’s choosing.

    Huge difference although it has similarities:

    Similarities:
    You write for another website.
    Both has their own QA to check the quality of the article.

    Differences:
    Article Writing for Article Submission sites can be distributed through different channels like blogs, websites etc.
    Guest Posting is writing for a website/blog and no one (unless permitted by the blog/website owner) can copy it.

    Article Submission sites really accepts articles from writers.
    In Guest Post, you need the website owners permission before it will be live.

    Guest posting is another way of saying guest blogging. A ‘post’ being the article that appears on the blog.

    Article marketing is what you do when you’re trying to get your content (articles) on a website other than your own.

    Generally article Submission can be attempt on Commercial article submission website and after two or three days your article can be approved(If Good you Use Good Content). But in Guest Posting You are playing a roll of a Guest, Who contact the blog Owner and Request to post Content/article on his blog.

    Article submissions and guest post both are the best ways to get quality backlinks. Both are very helpful for keywords rankings also.There different is we do article submission in proper article submission site and do guest post with blog site, there post the blog by other person.

    Both of these members make very good points. As Rocky points out, articles from article submission sites are not usually of high quality, and so the amount of help they are to a website's rankings are questionable. However, as arindamdutta16 points out, articles can be helpful if submitted properly. For instance, if you belong to a networking site, and submit a well-written article to them, it would have value to the readers, and would therefore be valued by the search engines. If you include a link to share the article on Facebook or Twitter, it can be shared or re-tweeted, and can "go viral" throughout the web. Press releases, if they have something newsworthy to say, can be distributed by reputable sources, and can be seen in hundreds of respected websites and publications.

    Doing article submission no need to ask permission for you to have your articles posted. You just need to write informative contents and you are there. However, this one is often mistaken by most spammers and don't actually see it's benefits and that leads them to spam article directories. Joeroxx made a good point in saying that these platforms are good if you submit properly. Viral sharing, word of mouths, and natural link backs is waiting for you if you do it right.

    Guest blogs takes time before you can convince one blog owner to post in their blog. You need to be an excellent writer in order to gain the trust of bloggers. I've said in another thread that this one takes a long time but worth trying for. The difference of guest blogging to article submission is you can get good quality and relevant links. There is this one benefit that if you can convince one influential blogger, your content might be shared by him/her to his/her social media account and get shared over and over again.

    Another benefits of guest blogging is you can build a good relationship between you and bloggers. Making informative contents will benefit both of you. Blog owners will thank you for making a good post because their blog will get lots of traffic and link backs. You will thank the blog owner for allowing you to post your content giving you a good link back to your website. In this way, you can build a good relationship. Blog owners might also refer you to their colleagues if you are a good writer.

    Guest blogging is very effective way to build quality links. only limit number of article can be accepted at any given time by a single blogger. Another type of method to get back links from Article directories site. this submission is the act of submitting articles to external places.

    Article submission is writing article and sharing in article directories
    Guest posting is more like blog comments, where a user adds on his comments to a blog post

    Actually, Guest Posting is Writing a Blog Post that is intended for someone else's website, it has nothing to do with comments.

    Article submission and guest posting is totally different SEO practice. Both are very good to drive traffic and to create quality backlinks. Article submissions is like writing article about any topic then submit on top article marketing website like goarticle, ezinearticles and many more. Guest posting is post a blog on some other blog. This also need good and unique content.

    Article has become one of the most popular ways of promoting your website. Your reader gets to read informative and useful content and you get targeted traffic as well as some links to your website.
    Guest posting means to post your content on others blog. Its quit effective and worthy technique to get back link.

    Guest posting is just similar to article submission. But there is a difference.

    Guest posting can be called an article submission since in guest posting we submit an article to high quality sites.

    While article submission can't be called guest posting since in article submission we can submit to any sites web2.0/article sites/press release sites.

    Guest posting is more effective SEO strategy than article submission.

    You guys should read following article published on the WebProNews by Chris Crum just 19 hours ago today.

    According to the article you should avoid participation in link schemes. For example:

    • Large-scale article marketing or guest posting campaigns with keyword-rich anchor text links
    • Advertorials or native advertising where payment is received for articles that include links that pass Page Rank
    • Links with optimized anchor text in articles or press releases distributed on other sites.
