Writing content for your own articles page versus for an article site
Which is better?

I have an articles page that I use to write specific content pertaining to the products sold on the site. Within the articles, I target long and short tail keywords for inner category pages. I pretty much do the same thing when I decide to post original articles to article submission sites. But I'm wondering if it's more beneficial to publish more articles on my own site than on someone else's site. If someone stumbled upon my article on an article site to which I submitted my content to, and they decide to link to it, the benefit of the link would be to that article site wouldn't it? Should I link to my article that is on my site to something like my own blog or placed a link to it on my Twitter for example, wouldn't that be better for my site?

That's something I've wondered about when I'm looking for sites to post written content. People that links to my article on my site at least will give a backlink to my site in this case. Or should I really just distribute my content equally within my site and on other article sites?

You have to understand the purpose of the two activities.

Writing content for your site:
To attract visitors to your site once it ranks.

Writing content for other sites:
To create links for your sites so that your own content ranks.

Make sense?

i just chatted about this on another thread:

[webmasterworld.com...]

if a link gets pointed to the article on a site other than your own, ensure that a link is pointing to your site from the article, so you could @ least what was referred to in the thread as 'second tier link development' that will pump diluted link blood into your site;

Thanks guys for the insight. I try to get as much as I can out of an article and having a better understanding on how to utilize them always helps. I just read that thread, neal, and the information on it was quite valuable.
