In a video response to a question from India. Matt Cutts head of Google’s Search Spam Team advised webmasters and SEOs to avoid using article directories  in building links for their websites.

The question was.

“Links from relevant content in article directories — Seen as good or bad?eg. I link my beauty website from a cosmetic surgery article on say, Ezine? Would you do that?”
Deepika, India”

On the video, he kinda stated not to use it and hinted at the end by saying:

“My personal recommendation would be probably not to upload an article there.” – Matt Cutts

But, on his tweet. he clearly answered the question with a “NO”
