You can also convert your articles into pdf files and submit them to document sharing websites.

There is a very cool new piece of software called Backlinktopia which automatically converts your articles into pdf files (which will have a link pointing back to your website with the anchor text that you specify) and submits them to document sharing websites.

Not everyone uses this underground method and the backlinks coming from these sites are powerful. There is a video on my blog on which Brad Gosse actually shows you how the software works. Take a look :
