Writing for publicity
that most webmasters will email you informing you that they're using
your article but some won't so it's a good idea to check back with
the more popular sites you've submitted to now and again.
After a couple of months you should find your backward links filled

members of the group. Some members however choose not to receive
articles via email but to read them online instead.
Here's some of the content groups I submit articles to along with
the latest member numbers.
