    Are articles worth while?


    Hi, it's my first post so go easy...

    I've historically done ok in SERPS for websites I've build by simply following the basics including good onsite SEO, Webmaster stuff setup correctly and getting a few obvious backlinks sorted.

    My brothers business ranks pretty well across a number of keywords but I've recently started to use Ahrefs and it's very clear that competitors are ranking for more keywords and all have way more backlinks. Many of the banklinks seem to be from articles and I'd say most paid for via the likes of eHow etc.

    Are these sort of articles worth while?

    Paid article placement is a dying breed. I'd rather spend my energy elsewhere. For example, find a couple of high-profile blogs in your niche and arrange a regular (monthly, weekly) contributor columns there. High-quality editorial content is great for both link and traffic acquisition
