    Thanks Kay King.

    I read it on google blog about duplicate content.
    But I can't understand it very much due to my
    english(I'm not from USA!).

    Can anybody show some proof on this?

    Thanks

      The original duplicate content penalty applied to websites where every page had identical content in an attempt to manipulate search engines and increase site ranking and thus increase income for that site. That practice became common- and the penalty was the result.

      Another duplication is putting identical sites on different domains.

      Duplicate content does not apply to article marketing.

      If you search google for a common medical problem you will often find the first page of results (highest ranking sites) have the same information word for word about that medical condition. That should be enough proof for anyone.

      Think about it - if you write an original article and put it on your site and submit it to article directories it is possible other site owners will add your article (hopefully with the bio box as required) to their related sites. This is what you WANT to happen as it increases exposure for you and your site. Google has no problem with that.

    I dont think the duplicate content rule applies to putting the same exact site on a different domain. Im testing this right now but its too early to tell, but I have read from other warriors that you can indeed put the exact content on another site and it still brings in organic SE traffic.

    Azim,
    This question has been asked many many times over and some give bad advice proclaiming some type of dup content rules.

    Fact: Article Marketing is not effected in any way, shape or form by some dup content rules.. This is infact a myth.

    Fact: If dup content rule existed in Article Marketing then all article directories would shut the doors and close their sites. If Dup content was a problem nobody would be getting indexed and no articles would be indexed but the first one google found.

    Fact: my articles are posted on my article site, eza and my blog.. All 3 are indexed without a problem. Matter fact eza most of the times shows in a lower listing, meaning eza does not have as much pull as everyone thinks.

    It i suggested however to modify your articles.. I have done both post the same and modified articles. In my opinion if you modify the content then you are better off. Your article should be posted to your blog first though..

    Thanks James and Kay,

    This mean that I can submit my articles to hundreds of sites?Right?
    Without any restrictions.

    So duplicate content does not apply to article marketing.BUT,
    What does this mean?

    However, in some cases, content is deliberately duplicated across domains in an attempt to manipulate search engine rankings or win more traffic. Deceptive practices like this can result in a poor user experience, when a visitor sees substantially the same content repeated within a set of search results.

      It means you can submit the same articles if you choose to do so .. I do it, not with all my articles but I do submit the same one from time to time..

      It is suggested that you change the article some, but really it is your choice..

      Also understand that submitting to hundreds of article sites does not mean more traffic. There are "Many" useless article sites that get no traffic themselves so how are they going to help your article if they can not even get listed..

    The basic rule of thumb is that it must be more than 30% of your page data (including your site template, images, etc) to qualify as duplicate content.

    Here's a link to Matt Cutt's blog where he discussed Dupe Content in detail. It's where I send my members when they have questions about it.

    Hope this helps.
