    Article submissions and Blog posting both are very much popular and effective techniques but it is only gives best results if its create with unique and fresh content and submit it on high Page Rank websites and built high quality backlinks.

    Instead of focusing on a specific task like blog posting or article submission, look at content marketing in general.

    Have a good content plan built around your marketing strategy. Then, start building relationships.

    Carloboja has the right idea. Although there are some techniques that are to be avoided, such as submitting to article submission websites that submit your article to "hundreds" of websites, You really shouldn't concentrate on one technique over another. Some techniques are inter-related as well. For example, a link to a blog post can be shared on social media, an article can be shared on social bookmarking sites, as well being written for a networking site such as LinkedIn. Other than what I mentioned above, both techniques can be effective.

    Article submissions and Blog posting both are very much popular and effective techniques. But I think Blog submission is best promote the Business. Blog submission is best link building method. always update the Fresh Content, Images, Video etc.

    Reputable article submission sites are fewer today and this is due to for sale domains and some are closed for registrations as well as the submissions of the content. But on blog posting there are still many of them and still growing.

    Both of these strategies have their uses.
    As per SEO point of view, I have not noticed any kind of big difference and complaints about these methods until time were obtaining Backlinks.
    Nowadays, the best way search engines like google line up backlinks, guest posting over a beneficial blog works more effectively.
    Honestly, I prefer guest posting more than anything else.

    both blog posting and article posting are good. but blog posting is better than article posting because most of them do blog posting since articles are less available.

    I agree with all opinions, article submission and blog posting both are very helpful for backlink building. The content should be fresh and interactive while posting on your own blog. So here are some inputs that you must keep in mind:

    1) Before you start to write content, have a clear idea in your mind of your target audience. What do they want to know in this blog or article?

    2) Than grab the audience's attention. If you lose the reader in the first few paragraphs, or even sentences, of the introduction, they will definitely stop reading even if your content is very informative.

    3)Choose visually relevant images for your blog, that also must look appealing.
    Hope these few points also would be helpful and make your idea clearer.

    That's no longer correct. The search engines have got wise to the whole article submission thing. Back in 2014 they dumped a whole load of article sites from the index because they were full of link building spam. Guest blogging has gone the same way and is now hurting ranking.

    Your three pointers are good but only for content you publish on your own site.

    There are some authoritative sites that you can publish material on but do it to inform not for its link building advantages. What you want ideally is for someone else to write an article and mention/link to your site in that article.

    Both are useful as long as you are using unqiue, original high quality content but blog post is more useful than article submission as you can do more things with a blog post than an article submission. For example you can add images and can customize your article better in a blog post than article submission.

    Can you explain this please? I can add images, lists, quotes, links, tables and anything else to an article, blog post, news story or any other form of content publication. But as I said above, neither are useful as link building tools unless you publish them on your own site.

    Do not underestimate the power of internal linking. And as Google is promoting self published content more and more, putting your material on an external site is throwing away prime ranking content.

    Purpose of article is to provide the authorized information where as purpose of blog is to build the relationship with the audiences. Article has authorized tone where article voice is friendly. At the end of the day what is important is getting more likes and comments, if it is a blog or article doesn't matter for your business.

    No matter what method you choose to promote your business, may it be a blog submission or article submission, quality content is what brings the ultimate success to your doorstep. Back link building is an effective SEO technique that helps in increasing traffic to your blog or article.

    A blog post is an article. They both perform the same purpose: to inform.
    No it's not. What's more important is getting more leads. I don't want likes or comments, I want more clients.

    My suggestion go for Guest Posting for Backlink .

    Guest posting is writing a post for someone else’s blog. This should not be confused with commenting on blogs, which is a less efficient way of creating backlinks.

    No, don't do this. Guest posting for backlinks is a waste of time. It's the equivalent of article submission - something google now penalises.
    It is 100% inefficient. It doesn't work at all.

    Pointless. Paying someone to blog on your behalf is a waste of money. The blog posts are low level junk on sites that have been spammed to death.

    The only Guest Blogs that work are those on authoritative sites. And if you want to post on these sites you need to be trusted and have some authority in the topics you are posting about.
