Why not republish your content on as many places as possible? It's a simple way for you to generate more traffic and exposure, right? |
We did this at KISSmetrics. Can you guess what happened to our search traffic? It tanked by 225,418 visitors!
We got hit by a Panda update, which caused our search traffic to plummet.
So yes, although it sounds like a great idea, the penalty you incur will lose you more traffic than you gain from the republishing of your content.
Instead of trying to republish your content, focus on picking the right spot. Choose the blog that you think is the best for each piece of content you write, and only publish it on that site.

Instead, we are moving to a new adage these days.
"Original Content Is King."
