First, if I create an article (which will include an anchor link back to my site), it seems the feedback has been to submit it to many article directories. Is there a service that does a great job that doesn't break the bank?
Second, if I create an article and get it posted to all the article directories, won't it be duplicate content? This is my confusion. How can I have an article posted to all the article directories, get the link back to my site, but not be harmed by duplicate content?
