You can do that but I wont recommend it - mainly because the backlink is pretty much useless. The backlink may come from an article directory with high PR but remember that each internal page of a website is graded by Google individually, so it has its own Page Rank. If Google is not including your article because it sees that it can show a more relevant article/website based on what the searcher is looking for then Google already marked your article/site not to be shown for specific searches. This is because there is a more relevant article which happen to have been published ahead of your article and Google is considering that as the "original".
When Google has determined that your article has almost the same content with another article that it considers original then your article will not get "Google love" - your article page will therefore have low or No PR at all, rendering the backlink to your site useless.
Anyone is welcome to correct me if what I said is not accurate.
