Link Building via submitting articles to article directories is what I'm concerned about.
I'm working on a new site and my experience in field of SEO is not much. I know link-building is an important part of SEO and I'm looking forward to build links by submitting articles to article directories. But someone told me that it is not a good idea post Google Panda. Is it true.
I'm thinking of initially writing 10 good quality article of a word count of about 700-750 words and submit them to 100 article directories allowing me to put 2 backlinks to my website. So if I calculate it mathematically, I get 2 * 100 * 10 = 2000 backlinks with these 10 articles.
I believe it should be worth the effort for SEO and link building of my website, if the article i'm submitting is of acceptable quality. But what is a concern to me is that if post panda my articles submitted to 100 directories will be regarded as a duplicate content and my all my SEO efforts would fail.
Please guide me.
