I posted this question on some LinkedIn Groups and received some pitiful responses. I would love to hear some feedback.

What has been your experience with search engine rankings when you have an article you want to showcase? Do you find your rankings to be better for keywords/keyword phrases when you post the article to your WordPress Blog or when you distribute the article through article distribution websites? And most importantly, would you do both or only one?
