    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.

    I would use them all as a backlinking strategy. You will need all kind of backlinks to improve your rankings in competitive niches.
    Here is my priority list:

    1. HubPages
    2. Squidoo
    3. Article directories

    I would use a combination of all 3 as well.  In fact, you can link to your hubpages and squidoo lenses in your articles as well as your websites.

    can someone give an example of an article directory -- do you mean sites like shetoldme and redgage?

    I'd utilize all the options available to me. I'd write content on all the sites, because the links are hardlinks, get indexed by the major search engines - and you can promote it to other people, who can tweet the content and link back, It all benefits you though.
