    Hm , Submitting to top Article Directories is better option to trigger as they have good set of users with different Interest , comes regularly for reading .
    Also published articles are get ranked within top search visibilities and availing benefits of search audience . So provide good , informative content with a great title that can be used as queries like What , why , How's , Advantages ,Disadvantages etc .
    Now traffic to your website depends on how smartly you place links of your website within content so that reader sticks to know about you .
    Thanks

    They do generate traffic in any niche depending on how interesting your articles are for some reasons:

    - You can make this as another option for targeting your audience. You just have to provide good information and make sure that your article is searchable.
    - If you are struggling to get blogs for guest blogging, article directories can be your last resort. Besides, it will serve as your portfolio whenever blog owners are requiring your to have your own one.
    - It can also be a good product review option. Just like I said, you just have to make it compelling.

    Article directory submission is still one of the most effective types of backlinking. Submit to high quality authority directories which are showing up in the SERPs for the keywords that you’re trying to rank for. Go with contextual links from a mix of do-follow and no-follow sites. Original content is always a plus since it’s one of Google’s main concerns. You may also want to diversify your links by having incoming links from other types of authority sites – web 2.0’s (mix of do follow and no follow), blog posts, social bookmarking, wiki, press releases, etc.

    Article directories are one of the best sources to get good quality backlinks for your website. It is mentioned in every other SEO handbook and blog that having quality backlinks helps in achieving high rank. There are lots of directories that are highly appreciated by most of the search engines.

    I have been benefiting from article directories as article marketing is one of the techniques I am using to generate traffic to my site. People seeking for different information go through article directories and so having articles in these directories is a good advantage for you and your website. Just make sure that you submit high-quality articles and not just those with poor quality.

    Since there are lots of article directories, huge amount of articles is needed to be submitted to the top directories. What website owners do is that they outsource articles and send original contents to all article directories that they have chosen. Just like me, I have been submitting original and high-quality articles to various directories and indeed, many are linked to my website through such articles. Well, maybe because of the great content of my articles.

    Want to know where I am getting such? orderseoarticles is my source of good articles. They can deliver huge amount of articles just at the right time and not only that, they advertised my Website on Facebook for FREE! What I learned was that they offer this FREE advertisement to their customers who can make a purchase worth $150 and above. What do you think? (Well this is just a piece of advice to those who are looking for a good article source.)

    Go in favor of technique , but not to spoil rules by submitting same content to numbers (article directories) . I have better opinion for Content sharing , go with guest posting
    Guest blogging directly means to submit on else's site which is already popular and having good ranking , followers and traffic , So definitely by posting you will get exposure to new set of readers and if more reader likes the article, they will often follow you on Twitter or Facebook or Google+ to see what other content you are publishing on other websites, including your own and as search engines working to show up popular and good quality content with their results So benifits with good search engine ranking , your site’s traffic will ultimately going to be boosted. So to increase your traffic and ranking you should write guest posts.
    thanks

    Article submission is top position to get high quality backlink (external link) from most niche websites. The backlink from most relevant website can increase the seo ranking and google page rank.

    Article directories are dead. They were slapped from first pages of Google. More and more complaints arrive from online marketers who experience less and less profits from directory submissions. Most of them have already switched to guest blogging. As to me I find guest blogging very annoying because even best quality articles are often rejected and traffic results from accepted ones are not satisfactory. To be successful in guest blogging you have to submit regular posts to the same blogs. However, those blogs you've chosen to be a steady contributor suddenly stop accepting guest posts. That's because they already have sniffed out some new threats of Google decreasing their rankings for guest post links. You can read more about it just googling this news. I gave up on article marketing at all! Why are you, folks, wasting your time? Or you can prove me the opposite? The era of article directories is now almost a history.

    Article submissions are the best way to generate targeted traffic on your website & also get a good backlink from articles sites..but main issue occur when your article is not interesting or not a user friendly..So according to me do submissions in top article websites who has a good domain authority..
