You are probably aware of the value of writing articles and submitting them to directories as a valuable search engine optimization strategy. Articles that are submitted may well get syndicated across several websites over a period time providing you with some valuable link juice.
Have you thought about where you are going to link that article in your pages. Common sense would suggest that for premium search engine optimization value, you would link to similar articles within your site using keywords as your link.
Sometimes you can get better value by linking to other areas within your site. Dedicated landing pages have always been popular and can provide real value for visitors. They do not necessarily provide good value for your search engine optimization program.
Article submission directories are spidered on a regular basis by most of the search engines. They are most likely spidered more frequently that your own site. Linking an article to new pages can help get them indexed a little quicker. For search engine optimization value, I prefer to use the much faster social sites for indexing.
As most article submission directories allow more than one link within your resource box, why not give the search engine spiders something to really chew on, your sitemap. Place a link to your sitemap and the links will the flow to every page within your site – unless you use nofollow tags. That will provide a real boost to your sites link building search engine optimization program.
