Hi,

I have 10 set of articles. I developed it on my own. Is it acceptable if I submit a article to various article directories? Will I get content duplication message from ezine and any other directories?

    I save a link to this article in my forum for just such a question Google Busts the Duplicate Content Myth | WebProNews

    The only suggestion would be to post it on your own site first and wait about two weeks

    Do you have 10 sets of articles or 10 articles total. If you want to do submissions with these, then its better to submit them to ezine first, wait to get approved and then you can submit to other directories which are not as strict with content uniqueness.

    If you want better seo results though, I would recommend rewriting them at least a little for each submission.

      Ezine articles is such a pain in the okole with which to deal I believe other authors are beginning to realize this as well. Last time I did a submit your article search they were no longer on the first page

      Personally I just skip them if I can't get that %^&* keyword count they insist on low enough

    Yes. Once you get past Ezine then the others kind of fall into place. articlebase, goarticles, amazine articles, articledashboard, article alley, easyarticles, article compilation and articlefactory are all good to submit to. Link building becomes more important once you start building out from Ezine.

    Post them on your own site first, then ezinearticles. I typically make a Squidoo Lens and a Hubpage next, then blast them to all the other directories without much spinning at all if any.

    And bookmark and publish RSS feeds for all the above.

      I pretty much do the same thing when writing an article and submitting to various directories.

    Yes, you can post the articles on your site, then submit the same article to multiple article directories, provided you use the same author name for each one. This is called content syndication, and in this case: the author is syndicating his or her content on different online places.

    No, you won't get flagged by the article directories for duplicate content, except for a few ones which require unique articles unpublished elsewhere, like Buzzle.Com.

    No, search engines won't penalize you for doing this... even if you see that some of your articles published on a few directories are included in the "supplementary results", after a relevant search, though this happens rarely, in my experience that is.

    This just means your articles published on other directories, particularly ones excluded from the supplementary list, rank higher for the specific search term.

    So, if a different relevant search term is used next, your articles previously in the supplementary results could be excluded from it because it ranks higher for the specific search term... while your articles excluded from the supplementary list earlier could be included in this instance.

    To prevent some of your articles from being included in the supplementary results list for your target keywords, you can rewrite the titles, then the 1st and last paragraphs and even the resource box.

    Hope this helps.


    Best Regards,

    You can.. but do google love or hate duplicate content?

    Search Engines will not penalize you for sure but backlinks juice will not be that much too! (if compared with 10 Unique Articles).

    Maybe i am off topic :p

    In my opinion it is not at all advisable to submit the same article to various directories as there could be the issue of duplicate content.

    Yes. You can submit them to many different directories. But you can start with EzineArticles, then afterward, post to others. However, Buzzle.com does not want that, instead they want fresh content that has not been posted to other directories. So in this case you can also start posting to Buzzle.com, then post to others.

    To your success.

    Yes you could submit the article all over the plac ebut as has been said, you would be better advised to spend a little while now altering each article via spinning etc and then that would make you eventual return on effort that much more profitable.

    Yes, they have said it all. Everybody seems to agree that, you post it to your site first then to ezinearticles and then to other directories with or without spinning.

    It can be done but it doesn't give your any benefits because firstly its possible that some directories don't publish your articles, And secondly if they publish your articles, Google find all of them duplicate and it will not help you to rank higher.

      Please excuse a comment which will perhaps strike you as "outspoken" but that's just totally, absolutely and completely wrong. It's clear that you've never tested this, yourself, nor actually looked at what Google has to say about it. I know that many other people say this, all over the place, but actually there isn't any truth in it at all, and there never was, and it's a real disservice to people to repeat it here.

      Many people would benefit from simply reading (slowly and carefully!) the thread linked to above by Kansas Dragon. Sorry to go on about it, but it's really very bad news for many "beginning marketers" when people just state so flatly, as if it were "factual", something so entirely mistaken as this.

      I really feel for any "newbie Warriors" who might be misled - as I once was myself - by listening to the widely repeated views of people who haven't even quite got as far, themselves, as grasping the difference between duplicate content and syndicated content, because those views are in fact pure misinformation.

      Opinion has nothing to do with it. Fact is - you can submit to your site (or not), then to EZA first - then to other article directories.

      I would rewrite before using on Squidoo or (especially) on hubpages because those are not article directories.

      When it comes to the constant chatter about "duplicate content" it's not something you decide or make up or form an opinion on - the testing has been done for you - the clarifications have been made by google - and submitting the same article is not a problem. It's syndication - not duplication. Learn the difference.

      • Why on Earth would it be flagged as duplicate content if the author of the original content is publishing it on as many online places as possible, for maximum exposure, under his or her own author name?! Why on Earth would there be a "Google duplicate content penalty" if my competitors could just copy my content and publish it on as many online places as possible so Google can penalize me, their competitor?! Why on Earth would Google and other Internet search engines "penalize" me if my competitors could build millions of backlinks for me in a day?! Why on Earth will Google "penalize" me if my competitors can build crap content with my backlinks on thousands of spammy sites?! How on Earth could software check this accurately?!
