Is links for Article directories good
I recently started submitting my articles to these directories

Hi everyone,
I have a question? Is submitting your articles to article directories good. Also the links which I use at the resource box is given any value by search engines. I recently started doing some Article marketing and I found in MSN that I got a very good amount of links from these article banks, some blogs and also from resource websites.

Can anyone give me some insight on articles links.

Thanks in advance.

Article submission will really boost your rankings, in all SE's. Just try using fresh and relevent content. You will get fast results in MSN, but G will take some time.

I think article submission is good reinforcement for holding your place in the search engines. Constant link development is rewarded in all SE's. In order to get there in the first place though you will need some solid links from strong sites, whether they are paid or otherwise obtained. Article submission can keep you afloat, but it won't keep you out of the water. There are many other forms of viral link building though, and many separate techniques can be applied to maximize the effect.

What are those?

Viral link building could mean pr releases, newsletter and a whole variety of things. Do a search for viral link building you will find tons.

The two biggest benefits I have found from unique article building links is deeper linking, more stable se results, more se results from more niche keywords resulting in more traffic.

Of course there are many more benefits that simply these....

I understand that links from article directories are good. I read somewhere that links from same IP is not considered to be valuable. So if I get 100 links for my site from the same article directory, will it help me anyway?

One question about using articles for backlink, say you use a program that will speed you submissions so your able to submit your article to 125 directories on one day, is that going to trigger a penalty for building links too fast?

The benefit of many articles in many article directories is that site owners will enjoy your articles and publish on their site. If you anchor text is intact, you recieve a free low level link.

Most will be pr1-2, however a relevant one way is a relevant way regardless...

Depends on how good your article is ;)

Seriously though, I wouldn't worry about it. Usually the articles are syndicated and roll out over a period of time, not all at once. Eventually this will turn out to be a few constant low level links per day, which will benefit you. Keep in mind though that this sort of link building will rarely give you a huge boost. More often than not (since the links come and go with article submissions) this will only stabilize your position in the SERPs. You will still need quality one way links to get to the top.
