If you have been a member of this awesome forum for any length of time, than you know doubt have heard of the "duplicate content" issue. And if you haven't, basically many marketers feel that if you submit the same article to multiple locations, Google will penalize you by removing the duplicate content, and therefore wasting the time and effort to submit those articles.
This is why "article spinners" are so popular.
Now, I am all about working hard, but my time is very limited, and so I only like to work hard when that effort justifies it.
I, like most Warriors, totally believed in the "duplicate content" issue. However, it's just my personality to actually put theories to the test instead of just blindly believing what others say.
Besides, I do article marketing for a living, for my own portfolio of niche blogs and for a select number of Warriors, and if I could remove the process of "spinning" content while still maintaining the benefits of mass article submissions, then I'd be thrilled.
So I started to submit articles (identical titles, content, and resource boxes) to about 20 article directories that I normally work with.
And do you know what I discovered? The exact same articles are showing up multiple times in Google's search engine results. What this means that for the same content, I am now getting many more backlinks without any additional effort is "spinning" the content.
And this shouldn't surprise anyone. When news websites write up a story and it gets syndicated, it doesn't need to be re-written to show up on other sites.
I have hundreds of articles published, but I took one as an example that I submitted 2 months ago. I first submitted it to Ezinearticles.com, and once published there, I then submitted the identical article to 20 other article directories.
I just checked Google this morning by typing in the title of my article in quotes. Here are the listing showing up in Google (and giving me long term, quality backlinks):
Not, most of these article directories aren't slouches. They have some pretty strong Page Ranks, and I am ecstatic knowing that I am getting strong backlinks using the exact same content.
Now, not all 20 or so article submissions are showing up. That could be because Google hasn't found them yet to have them indexed.
I'm no sure. All I know is that it's been 2 months, and those links are sticking around (and should continue to stick around).
So no more article spinning for me or my clients. I don't belive in the duplicate content myth.
I am not saying that you should take my word for it. What I do recommend is to do your own testing, and see the results for yourself.
You may be surprised at what you find.
Keep working hard....
