Greetings, in an effort to expand my blog content, yet stay "above board", is it Ok to write a review on a video or podcast and post it as a blog entry on my website? So, it's content that isn't mine, yet I want to engage in content creation ethically. Thanks!

    Of course it is! At the end of the day it will be your review and your opinion on whatever it is. Lots of people are looking for different reviews and this is another great way to attract visitors to your website.

    If the video is on Youtube and they have encouraged embedding then adding it to your site and commenting shouldn't be an issue but you should check.

    A resource you might find helpful which gets a ton of traffic for digital marketer is their blog post ideas post - https://www.digitalmarketer.com/blog-post-ideas/

    You might find some inspiration but be aware DM are experts at attracting prospects and leads by creating content so if you get retargeted or opt in to any of their stuff don't say I didn't warn you.

    You might want to see where your idea fits in their list.

    Best regards,

    There's nothing wrong with writing a review of a video and using it on your website.

    Just don't steal the content ideas and claim them as your own. If you do a review of what's presented and you post the video in the blog post, you'll be fine.

    You should do because when you are doing so, actually you are letting people know that whether the content is worthy or not and beyond the doubt they will love your efforts.

    But, you should be cautious that you are not stealing the content produced or written by someone else. You must also remember to give a link back to the resource if it is something great that your audience will also be grateful for.

    Review and credit. Then, if the owner ask to removal, simply remove it, but it should not happen.

  • If you are going to review anything, make sure that there is a way for you to get paid.

    Many internet marketing empires have been build on using the product review method to making money online.

    Offering a bonus unique to you in the product review, usually entices the readers to buy the product being review via your affiliate link, to ensure that they get the unique bonus you are offering them.

    So yes honest reviews are totally ethical, especially if your giving the product/video/podcast creator credit for their content.

    I totally agree with Sheldon. There are many internet marketers out there who pay for reviews and ratings for their products and services. You might, as well, take advantage of this -Micah

    That's perfect. Then, you can reach to those people you mentioned in your article, and perhaps, you can get a link back to your article.

    It all depends on how much time you are willing to invest in this...I like to read a lot what other people wrote, buy kindle books and other informational materials from the well-known experts in my niche..

    And then just reflect on all the new info that you got and come up with some content ideas that can be interesting to your audience.
