Backlink: hub, squidoo vs article submission directories
if you had to choose between article submission directories and creating hubs and lenses that link back to your site, what would be better??? would they have the same effect??? Should i prioritize one over the other or just do both?
Squidoo and Hubpages are usually used for a combination of backlinking and to earn income on their own. Article directories are generally just about the backlinking. The original article has a backlink, and then that article is spread around and posted elsewhere, creating more backlinks. If I was only concerned about backlinks, I would use article directories over Squidoo/Hubpages.

Is backlinking one of those annoying yet necessary tasks to improve traffic? Which is more effective for backlinking? Excerptz or Squidoo?

I really want to start thinking about backlinking since I now have a few hubs under my belt. I have spent so much time fixing mistakes (learning opportunities), that I am now convinced it is much easier to do it right the first time. So the question is: If I wanted to start writing smaller articles...

I know that writing related articles and submitting them to article directories (ezines, squidoo, etc.) help drive traffic to HP. I have no trouble writing new, related articles; but, the submission process to 10+ directories is very time consuming. Is there a tool that makes it easier to submit...
