Besides blog commenting and forum posting, submit article to article directories is another great way to get quality backlink. Most of SEO expert are sure that link from article directory is more valuable than link from blog commenting or else. But we have to wait a quite long time to our article get listed in article directory (my last attempt of submitting article, i have to wait nearly 1 month to get listed).
