Submitting Articles to high quality directories and PR sites can be a good way to show authority in your industry and share information about your business.
Using Article Directories for link building however, is not a great option due to the lack of control you have over article re-use and the low quality results it often produces. Google also sees this practice as being fairly in-effective and has algorithms in place to ensure these tactics are less successful now than they used to be.
The rule-of-thumb with Link Building is -
- 1. Keep it relevant
- 2. Content is king
- 3. Provide useful information that is 'share-worthy'
