    Sorry if this question has been asked before. When submitting my article to article directories, web2.0's where is the best place to put the backlink? In the beginning, middle or end? Does it even make a difference? Also, how many links could I afford to put in the whole article? Thanks in advance for the answers :)

    Article directories generally have set rules about how many links you can have and you will have to abide by those on a directory-by-directory basis eg. some places only let you have a link in the author box, others let you have one or two links in the article itself etc. If you can, put the link as early in the article as you can, surrounded by good keyword rich text for maximum SE benefit.

    For web 2.0s, since you control the page you can put the links anywhere, load up on as many as you can for the format of the web 2.0 in question.

    For web 2.0s where you can put as many links in the page as you want (for example, profile description boxes that allow unlimited links or blog posts), statistically you're better off cramming in as many links as possible. This has two effects:

    1) it makes it seem like the web 2.0 page is more related to your niche (by stuffing in more niche keywords via your anchor text).
    2) you want to split off the greatest proportion of the PR of the web 2.0 page as you can into your own sites. Say your web 2.0 has 15 navigational links per page: if you just use one link to your own sites, you're getting 1/16 of the PR of that page. If you use 15 links, you're getting 50% of the PR into your own network (plus anchor text benefit etc).

    Most of the article submitting sites vary in their set of guidelines. Make the link building look natural. Some sites allow for no more than 2 links in the article body whereas some sites allow no links at all and you are only allowed to place the links in the author's signature space.
