12 Days of Christmas: Day 4 – Duplicate Content

By  |  Published 

December 14, 2010 – We talk a lot about content distribution and getting your content found on the Internet. It’s true that the more shared your articles and blogs are, the more mileage you can get out of a single piece of content!

This blog also had one of the cuter images we’ve used.

Three months ago on September 14th we wrote about duplicate content for the first time, making sure it was explained that duplicate content is NOT the same as duplicate article submissions.Many article submission sites frown upon submitting the exact same article to their site twice, but they don’t mind that your article appears on other websites. However, just because an article submission site doesn’t mind duplicate content does not mean that Google will fill a page of search results with nothing but your syndicated content – they won’t.

When you have a great article or super interesting blog topic posted on your website, you want everyone to read it, right? That’s why it’s so important to have your content linked to on multiple sites. Your social media profiles can be great outlets to get your content in front of the eyes of your fans and followers. Having colleagues share your articles with their own clients is also a great way to get your content to new readers (just make sure you return the favor!).

If you want to get even more exposure for your website you may want to post articles to an article submission site. These sites are repositories for all sorts of topics and help generate author exposure (as well as backlinks to your website). However, you don’t want to just copy and paste the whole identical article.

Each article submission site has their own guidelines for formatting and content, meaning they like to have unique content submitted rather than just a copy of your work. However, this extra work is really a gift in disguise! Each re-imagined article can also include different SEO keywords to help your content get found by readers relying on different search terms.
