Default What are the best article directories to post on?

Hi, I've read a lot about the power of article marketing and I've created a lot of material but what are your views and experiences of using the various direvtories.
Are certain ones better suited to the Internet Marketing niche?
Are there any that are proven to be the best or most responsive?
Do I need to be on dozens or are there bots that marketers use to search and will my article be picked up if it's just on a couple?
By the same token will search engines now penalise for 'duplicate content' if posted across a multitude or directories?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I do article writing and submission s part of my link development service - but to be honest, I'm expecting to wind this down soon enough. At present it's used more from habit than anything else, but I think the benefits from doing so are limited at best, and is going to become even less useful over the near future.

I agree that there are more effective link building strategies than article marketing, however that is not to say it cannot be a play a part in your link building. Here are some article directories that I would recommend submitting to; the ones I have mentioned tend to send some traffic too.
