Article submission relevance has risen in popularity in the recent years for a couple of reasons. Keyword driven anchors, linking relevance and inbound link Page-rank weighting all plays a role in this vital SEO technique. When you submit an article to an external or internal page for ranking purposes, may facts of the article must be considered: where (what site) the article is submitted, where in the site (category relevance) it is submitted, what keywords are used, what anchor text is used and where it links to in your web page. All of these factors can greatly increase or decrease ranking efficiency when you submit an article.
Loosely put, article submission is an Off Page factor where articles consisting of content related to your page are posted into other article submission pages. These can be blogs, forums and the like. If these pages have high PageRank, you can automatically create yourself an inbound link (One Way Link Building) from a page with a high PR. When looking to submit an article, you can create your own links back to your page by using keywords in your anchored text that correspond to the page you linking to. Make sure the article is relevant not only to your page, but to the section of the article site that you are submitting to. Some article submission sites are free (as more content helps their page build PageRank), and some which have a high PageRank actually charge a fee for article submission.
