Many webmasters have told that article submission is the best way to get backlinks and effective method of link building. But, I have seen in many sites that from article submission websites are getting very few backlinks. Can anyone SEO expert here to tell me that how can I make an optimum use of my article? And kindly, tell me that what are its importance?
Optimum use of an Article
According to me best articles are best on your site and not on other sites for links. You can get links in many other ways as well.
When you submit a fresh article and once it gets approved what you can do is you can bookmark that article link through Social Bookmarking and can also post it on social networking sites.
Post your article on that article sites which can approve your posted article instant or within 48 hrs. once your article is approved you can do bookmark of that approved article link and you can do smo activity for that approved link.
If you submit article in one place, that is on your website and promote them individually, then it would be more beneficial than article submission sites.
But if you publish one article on different sites so it might attract 3 or 4 links, but it would weak the value of article that it have.
Sorry Matt Cutts But Google Panda Update Simply Doesn't Work
Only 27 people like that FB link and I am sure 99% of those people are webmasters whose sites has been de-ranked.
First, article submission creates duplicate content.
Second, after Panda update many good article directories are turning nofollow. So, I don't find any benefit in article submission.
