Blog Posts Question - Seeking Experienced Bloggers!

6 replies
Hi Guys,

I'm new to blogging and I've a few questions on blog posts:

1) If I wrote a blog post and also post that particular blog post on social media sites, would that be considered duplicate content in Google eyes? Or must I re-write the post each time I post on a new social media site?

2) If I wrote a guest post for other blogs, do I pass this one guest post to as many other bloggers as possible, or do I have to write one unique & different post for every blogger I wish to guest post for?

3) For the guest post that I write for other blogs, do I put it on my own blog too? If so, would that be considered duplicate content again?

I appreciate all guidance! Thank you warriors!

    1. No it would not be Google should index the original blog post first as the source as long as your not copying and pasting the whole blog post on your social media accounts.

    Do you have social sharing buttons above your blog posts?

    Usually when you share a blog post it's just the link to the blog post and a brief intro on what it is about.

    2. You write one original guest post for each site that you guest post on and share it as much as possible.

    3. Yes I wouldnt recommend that unless you rewrite the original post but you can link to it on your blog and write a brief description about what it's about.

      Thanks for your guidance jay! That was awesome!

      You mentioned "You write one original guest post for each site that you guest post on and share it as much as possible." May I know how do I "share it as much as possible"? Can it be done by myself or by readers of my blog?

    1) No it won't be considered as duplicate content because you have just published 1 article on your blog. What you are doing is just sharing the link. So ultimately it points back to your blog.

    2)You need to write unique articles. Do not publish the same article on all blogs. Each article that you submit should be unique

    3) Again no. You should not publish the same content everywhere

    PS. Use copyscape.com or plagium to check if your article is unique.

    Include keywords in your article and properly distribute it. But, the article should look natural and it should be written for the readers and not the search engine.

    Hi AG,

    1 is not a dupe - as far as I know - 2 and 3 are.....go with unique content every time out. Leverage your content by doing videos, slides and other forms of content not directly related to writing. For example; if you write a blog post and publish it on your blog it's done. Never publish this same content on any other blog, even if you make a few minor adjustments, because it will kill your reputation. Not unique stuff, so it cheapens your blog and any blog where you post it.

    Create in-depth, targeted, unique content each time out. Even if you're publishing similar content to your blog and to social media sites it never hurts to go creative, to go unique, each post. This forms the habit of creating good, unique content each time out which makes you a prolific dynamo.

    If you have the same exact content in 2 different places on your site you have duplicate content,if Google discovers this they might not index either page. Focus on publishing valuable/unique content on a site YOU own and control. If you publish a piece of content on your blog and then post it somewhere else then you're just creating competition for yourself. You're also confusing the search engines as well,which is never a good thing.

      In my experience, it's important today, more than ever, to rewrite your articles and avoid any duplication whatsoever.

      A couple of years ago, it would have been perfectly acceptable to write one article and share it on another social network site or article directory. This is not nearly as effective as it used to be and it probably never will be again.

      I believe we should all get into the habit of avoiding duplicate content completely if we want to get the biggest return for investing our efforts. Once you get good at it, it's fairly easy to rewrite an article, quickly.
