Getting backlinks to your website from high traffic sites is a great way to not only get more people to look at your website, but also works well for building backlinks to your site. The more links you get the better your site is in the eyes of the search engines.
The problem is that it can be hard to find good quailty sources to post your articles on that would result in both traffic and a quality backlink. The Google search engine in particular views links from high authority sites as stronger than from other sites. So when spending time creating content and working to get backlinks it would be helpful to ensure you are posting your content on the best sites possible.
Below I have researched and found for you 6 article directories that you can start creating content for and submitting to generate content. You may have heard of many of these, but I am sure there will be one you hadn’t heard of yet.

There is debate out there that search engines are discounting backlinks from article directories. I personally come from the school of thought that a link to your site is a positive one in almost all cases. So you may not get the huge search engine boost you think, but the article is on a high traffic site. A few of these sites I didn’t know about either until I did my research on them. One of them that I had never heard about generates over 1 million unique visitors every month. So even if the backlink doesn’t work you still could get some people that visit your site from the article.
Either way article marketing is still a viable way to generate traffic.
Update: Below I have a link to a website which ranks the top 50 article submission sites based on traffic volume and page rank. This is a resource that you don’t want to be without!
