    Cyberbrute,

    In general, no. But it all depends on what becomes of the article that is linking to your site (or articles). For instance if for some reason they are very good content and people start linking to them all the time, then those links leading from the article to your site may become very valuable.

    In my experience, people use this tactic in tiered linking and if the articles are actually of some use, they eventually see a benefit. On the other hand if you put out a bunch of junk, you will get junk back.

    Article directories were also hit in one of the Google algorithm updates,

    Best,

    ^ this mate, but when you use article directories, you should be careful, there are already some cases here which webmasters get warned by GWMT for unnatural links, not really sure about ezine, but with good content i think that will be ok.

    If you don't put much effort into getting the articles, then they're worth it ;)

    Otherwise, no. Google *really* wants you to buy adwords so they've demoted all these low hanging fruit.
