Automated article submission services are not very effective anymore. Any automated service can be detected in time by Google as being a un-natural link building strategy and the links will be of very little (if any) value.
If you wish to do article submisions, it is best to do it manually using a variety of keywords and even using anchor text like "click here" or "read more here" or even no anchor text at all to make the links look more natural.
Article site links are far less valuable now with Googles Panda and Penguin updates but the still can help if you keep them looking natural. Here is a good list of article sites that should help you.http://www.directorycritic.com/article-directory-list.html?sort=pr
