I got my first article published, and now that I look back, I wondered if I should have placed links inside the article, instead of the footnote area.

Thoughts?

Links to what?

In general it would make very little difference to SEs. But if the links you refer to were promo links to your own site, then you'd kill the article utterly for human readers; it would just look spammy.

If you posted it at an article farm, just for the link benefit, it certainly makes little difference, as the link benefit will be negligable anyway. Or nil - some use javascript links or redirects, as well as having zero ranking for that part of their site.

You'd probably do much better publishing your own work on your own site, rather than helping to promote an article farm.

Thanks for the heads up.

I examine the links at the article sites, looking for no-follows or java redirects. Finding sites are difficult, but out there none the less.

I'll be taking in your suggestion anyways tho.... except from a different angle. Try to get the benefit of both worlds.

Good Luck; there are good outlets, but they are rare. :)
