    Good news. I always thought that the duplicate penalty was nonsense. Glad to hear that it is.

    Great article. I agree every day we receive stuff that is a rehash of old ideas. Unfortunately, our spam filters are not clever enough to identify it as such.

    Great post Allen!

    Our "social nets" and our ability to provide a "hall of fame" user experience will be more important than ever indeed.

    Kudos to you for that.

    You can tell the folks here who are just trying to sell their stuff.

    It is the responsibility I spoke about that makes the difference between a fly-by-night and a true internet marketing expert.

    Self-proclaimed Experts - Watch Out!

    I was thinking the same thing...

    back in August I had what I thought was a 'sand box' issue with a blogspot blog I made for a local moving company.

    Turns out that blogspot blogs rank well, then degrade quickly in seo terms.

    I pulled my ads, stopped taking new clients until I figured out how to prevent this from happening. I didn't want to take someone's money and not be able to deliver!

    you wrote: "With Expert Status comes immense responsibility"

    I agree totally

    PS) I cracked the code on blogspot ranking but this is your post and not the place for me to perform "shameless self promotion"

    My warriorforum blog is the place for that

    I started a thread about this where I created 10 blogs with exactly the same content. So far, they all are in the serps with different rankings but I cannot see any penalty. Just letting you all know.

    Any Article Marketing Experts In The House?

    Hi Allen, I'm surprised that out of 26 views, no one has taken you up on your offer yet! You're already an established article marketer.

    It sounds interesting, I have an article in mind and I'm quite sure that when I'm done with it, it's definitely going to be in the 1200 - 1500 range. If not more.

    Once it's done, I'll shoot you the article to see if you think it qualifies! ;D

    EzineArticles vs. Everyone Else

    AL

    Interesting points. Last December I conducted a test. I took one article. I spun that article so that each new article was 30% different.

    I wanted to see if a spun article would get ranked using different resources. I used the same title and posted on ezine articles, go articles, article dashboard and I created a Hub. All pointed back to my content site.

    For the first few months, EAs was 1st page, no.2, the hub was no. 8 and Article dashboard and Go articles were both on the 2nd page.

    The test proved a point to me that you can rank well spinning articles.

    I have just checked and EAs is still no.2 Go articles is on the 2nd page, but the hub and article dashboard is no where.

    You can see that in this scenario, EAs have stayed the course and provided long term exposure, whilst some of the others have not.

    However, you can argue, that by using the directory mediums, I generated more traffic than by only using EAs alone.

    The next test could be to compare the number of different hits the other directories generated, the time it took to spin and submit and compare this to simply using that time to submit more articles to EA.

    Of course there are other factors, such as backlinks, people downloading my articles from other directories etc to factor in.

    Personally, for now I concentrate on EA only. Occasionally I will use article post robot for a mass distribution but otherwise that's it.

    It's a continual testing process to find what works best for the least amount of input.......

    Cheers

    I have articles out there, not in EZA that I have marketed and promoted. They have been on the first page of Google, Yahoo AND MSN for months now...and for pretty good keywords. But my EZA submissions won't stay up that high for that long.

    I am working my tail off to get to the bottom of it. But I've been so busy lately I haven't had the chance. That's why I wanted to bring it up here.
