    When you provide your community with advice on how to solve one of their most pressing problems, they'll see you as a helpful resource.
    I know paidforumposting.com is a good option to do this, their writers are professional. They have helped me to drive traffic to my sites.

    Article submission is a white hat SEO technique. In order to get your keywords in the top of SERPs, we should use all ethical Off Page techniques including this. Content is King in SEO and so this technique is important.

    articles submission is not so valid as
    • majority of article submission sites are de-indexed from google
    • these sites are now only link forms
    • only SEOs visit them to submit their content.


    only submit in if you can find some articles directory which is
    • related you your nich
    • still indexed in google
    • human moderation
    • and they got real visitors

    Back to basics! Content is generated, but most important thing for you to concentrate on is how to spread the content to the world.
    This is an old seo method, insterad of link building, work with bloggers, writing guest posts that adds value to their site while benefitting you with the exposure to their audience.
    Build a quality reference from an authoritative site.

    tk-hassan makes a good point. When most people think of article submission, they think of sites like GoArticles and Ezine.com, where articles are submitted mostly for link-building purposes, with no regard for the value of the information they contain. Other article submission sites submit your article to hundreds of websites, where the purpose is also primarily obtaining links. This is NOT a White Hat technique, and is to be avoided. A better technique would be to submit articles to networking sites, where you have a built-in audience that is interested in the content of quality, well-written articles.

    Article submission directories are of no use nowadays for link building seo. Many of them have been de-indexed from search engines. Besides their link value is very low. But you could still find for some good submission sites where users are active and post links for gaining traffic. Remember that these links will not be of much use for seo.

    It is possible that article submissions may decrease your ranking.

    Most article directories are considered spammy by the search engines. They are filled with spun articles whose purpose is to provide links to various websites.

    There are a number of article spinners that modify words or phrases in an article and can produce tens or hundreds of similar articles (often hardly readable). These articles are then submitted to the article directories to get links pointing back to certain web pages (which we call backlinks).

    Such backlinks are mostly spammy, artificially created for the purpose of ranking.

    So, if a lot of your backlinks come from such spammy sources, search engines may take a dim view of your site.

    It's best to concentrate on obtaining quality links from respected websites.

    According to my experience links from article directories are still working if your article has power and contents are research based

    It's interesting, I remember when article marketing was really the way to go. Seems like it's not much that way anymore. So is it true to say that article marketing is only good for building referral traffic sources?

    Hello Friends,

    When you submit articles to directories, you leave a link back to your website and basically that website is like voting for your website in result making your website rank better in search engines. Plus a person might be reading your article on that directory and follow the link to your website.

    Submit articles with enough quality and people will link back to your squidoo and hubpages sites. Video Marketing is a great way to advertise and create backlinks. Create a Myspace And Facebook Profile for your website.

    Though article submission isn't going to directly benefit your link building for seo, you could get quality link backs when people link to the article or reshare them. Plus you always have direct referral traffic from the article :D
