I know there are a lot of threads about it. But finding many of them misleading. Can someone point the right direction?

Would like to know how to find content partners who can syndicate the content from my blog with our author bio information.

    I suggest that you search in Google, Yahoo and Bing and find blogs that are related to your niche. Then just contact the publishers and many will be more than happy to syndicate your content (provided your content is excellent).

    Well, @hpgoodboy, i can find partners who accepts guest posts by searching google with a term "Keyword" "Guest Post" or something like that. Is there a way to find partners in google who can syndicate my content which is already published in my blog?

      Hi Nags,

      One question: what kind of content do you have, for instance healt & fitness, real estate, internet marketing, etc? You don't show link to your blog in your signature.

      If we would know what is covered, it would be easier to help. If you don't want to publish it here, shot me a pm.

    @Sandor Verebi, I don't see a problem sharing the link here also i can't send a PM as my posts count is less than 50.

    Health Articles is the blog i was asking for. Its health related content.

    I have a conceptual problem here. Correct me on my understandings please.

    Guest blogging doesn't come under content syndication isn't it? All guest posts should be unique i believe.

    And submitting your articles to article directories is what content syndication is all about?

    Most of the links on the above 500+ list are article directories or guest post forms.

    I am looking for partners who can pull by feedburner rss and include it to their blog/site so my content is published with them as i release it. And that is content syndication. Correct me if am wrong.

      Yes, that's correct.

      Yes, that's correct too.

      So pay attention to the article directories.

      You can always submit your feed to rss directories, or use an article blaster. The slower method would be to contact people who appear to host other people's content, and then try to set up some agreement.

      All the guest blogging I have ever done over the last three years has definitely come under "content syndication"; yes.

      No - this isn't necessarily so at all.

      There've been quite a large number of threads discussing this specific question, over the last year or so. From them, two distinct sets of views emerge.

      One group of people imagines (totally wrongly - it's just another "Urban Myth" of internet marketing) that niche bloggers will for some reason not be willing to reproduce on their blogs a previously published article. You can see for yourself that this isn't right, because niche bloggers wanting additional content for their sites are the very same people who syndicate it from article directories (which is, of course, what article directories are there for in the first place, as explained here), and those articles which they're taking that way, to post on their blogs, have therefore by definition all been published before, even if only on their owners' sites and in the article directories. So this idea that people will only publish "unpublished content" is clearly completely wrong.

      All of the guest blogging I've done over the last three years (and that's a lot, because article syndication is how I make my living) has been previously published posts/articles.

      Originally Posted by Nags View Post

      Absolutely not! That's perhaps the view of people who are rather confused about the difference between article marketing and article directory marketing, and don't quite appreciate http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ries-work.html .

      Far from being "what it's all about", it's possible to run an article syndication business very successfully without actually using article directories at all - and this isn't just some abstruse, theoretical point: there are actually people who successfully do that.

      Originally Posted by Nags View Post

      I have a pretty strong feeling that the great majority of the people to whose sites my content is syndicated would have very little idea what "pull by feedburner rss" would mean. Maybe I do them a disservice suggesting that, but it's certainly not how content syndicators, for the most part, expect the arrangement to work, at all.

      Successful content syndication is about building personal relationships with publishers and webmasters. It isn't intrinsically about article directories; nor is it about automation.

      There's a fairly typical description of "content syndication" and how it all works in this post: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5035794

      Lastly, many thanks for the message inviting me to comment in this thread (which I hadn't noticed): it's a worthwhile pleasure to try to correct some of the deeply erroneous misinformation just above.

        Wrong. Go to any blog that accepts guest posts and you'll see the first prerequisite is original content. MyBlogGuest, one of the most widely known guest blogging systems, requires in its terms of service: "The author agrees not to republish the same article to other blogs to keep the blogger's content unique;"

        Oh yeah, cause people go straight to article directories for guest posts allllll the time. :rolleyes:

          The solution here, is to just ignore such sites that demand these very unreasonable terms. For any given viable niche, there are potentially hundreds of millions of candidates for syndication or guest blogging. With rare exceptions, providing unique content is wasted effort and the ROI may be minimal at best.

            Indeed. "Very unreasonable" is putting it mildly, really.

            I suspect that few people here read terms of service more reliably (or with greater interest, to be honest ) than I do, and I barely remember encountering that anywhere. Possibly I click the "back" button so quickly, if I see anything as ludicrous as that, that it barely registers in my consciousness ...

            Indeed so. More "polite British understatement" from you, Paul? I hadn't realized you had such a European background ...

              Well that could be the crux of your problem... failing to pay attention to service terms... I heard it's the leading cause of spreading outdated information and confusing the hell out of a lot of noobs.

              Thanks.

                I hate anything that's repeated ad nauseam. That includes web content, web templates, television reruns, music, conversations (like the ones on this forum before a moderator has the good sense to delete them), and news. Copy cats should crawl back into the xerox machines from where they crawled. They contribute nothing significant.

                  Aren't you just constantly repeating the same dribble that is the other side of these conversations? So in essence...you are the very thing that you hate .

                  Just because you hate it doesn't mean google hates it. Or that other people hate it. Or that it's not valuable. Or that it's illegal, immoral, or not effective.

                    My thoughts exactly. At the last Google conference that I attended their panel of experts clearly stated they like syndicated content when it's done correctly and that a lot of people think that all duplicate content is syndicated content when nothing could be further from the truth. They are totally two and completely different animals.

                    Just take a look at the Associated Press, a.k.a. AP. Thousands of websites take their information and use it on their website, but this is done correctly (because it's not spam nor spun-up crap!). Granted, it's a news organization, but that is just one example.

                    So anyone who states that google specifically hates syndicated content is stating an erroneous fact as of this writing. Google hates spam or any content that doesn't give the user a good experience. And yes, any of this could change tomorrow. But I don't write for Search Engines, I write for a targeted audience and the side benefit of this is that the SEs love me anyway.

                      You might want to read Google's official stance here: Duplicate content - Webmaster Tools Help which was updated a little over a month ago. Oh, and I'd (1) take that little tid bit about syndicated content seriously and (2) think hard about why they want you to keep it out of their index with the noindex tag!

                        Perhaps you should take the time to actually read and comprehend Google's official stance: They only speak of penalizing sites/content when said content is being spread around to try and gain link juice and game the Search Engine results.

                        I know you've been told like 987,652 times; but that is not what syndicating content is about.

                        And maybe you should read my last post again where I used the Associated Press as a clear example of the kind of syndicated content that Google likes and allows. Though you are correct about them advising for others to use the no index tag if they're going to use your content. They addressed this specifically at their conference because a lot of people had questions about duplicate content vs. syndicated content. Again, duplicate content and syndicated content are not necessarrily interchangeable in the eyes of Google because they definie them differently.

                        The page that you showed me only defines what duplicate content is, not what syndicated content is which Google has clearly defined at their conferences.

                        While syndicated content can be a form of duplicated content, Google does not view syndicated content the same as duplicate content as they realize that there is a definite "need for sydnicated content" (quoted directly from Google's own engineers). The news media being probably the most well-known as well as financial news and stock ticker updates, etc.

                        There are many marketers that make their living using syndicated content the way Google likes as well as many fortune 500 companies. It's a part of doing business for many content-based business models and Google recognizes this.

                          That's nice, but I just gotta ask. Did you read the page I linked to? It clearly defines duplicate content as "substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar." Did you see the part about keeping it out of Google's index, too? They want it that way for a reason.

                          Nevertheless, the media has their own rules to follow, outlined here: Publisher metadata tags - Google News (publishers) Help All the stuff on that page helps Google figure out which links rightfully belong at the top of search results. Again, for a reason.

                            Did you read the entire article? Or did you just find the word duplicate content, yell "Derp!", and post it up here like it proves your point. It doesn't. Google doesn't hate syndicated content. As a matter of fact they mention how they want you syndicating your content in the very article you keep referring to.
                            • Syndicate carefully: If you syndicate your content on other sites, Google will always show the version we think is most appropriate for users in each given search, which may or may not be the version you'd prefer. However, it is helpful to ensure that each site on which your content is syndicated includes a link back to your original article. You can also ask those who use your syndicated material to use the noindex meta tag to prevent search engines from indexing their version of the content.
                            Let me spell things out for you in case you can't understand it:

                            1. You are going to syndicate your content. We get that, and it's cool with us.

                            2. When someone searches for your article, we aren't going to show every syndicated copy. We'll pick the best one and go with that. Cool?

                            (For most article marketers, it is cool. As their article is still being read.)

                            3. If you want yours to be the only one rank though, you tell your syndication buddies to put a noindex tag in the article. Also, make sure your author bio (resource box) is included in the article.


                            Now, I am dying to know just where in that block of text, my explanation, or anything else Google has posted on the subject did you find this magical little nugget that proves syndication is bad? I just don't see it.

Did you see the part about keeping it out of Google's index, too? They want it that way for a reason.
                            Yes, I did, every word of it. And no where on that page does Google state they hate or dislike syndicated content. They wrote to "syndicate carefully". It's one way of them trying to get rid of the all the crap that's out there. What that web page shows is just a tip of the iceberg on what Google covers in their conferences and at SEO conferences. It's meant as a guideline for webmasters and content publishers.

                            Look, I'm not trying to be difficult here. Clearly Google does not like certain types of duplicate content the way they defined on that page and they do admonish to be careful how one syndicates content. But no where on their site do they state they hate syndicated content, nor have they ever said that at any of the conferences I've attended. Yes, the tags are there for a reason, but it's not because Google hates syndicated content.

                            Nevertheless, the media has their own rules to follow, outlined here: Publisher metadata tags - Google News (publishers) Help All the stuff on that page helps Google figure out which links rightfully belong at the top of search results. Again, for a reason.
                            Right, but that's not the point I was making. That's just one form of syndicated content. They also have a lot of other meta tags for non-media people to follow. There's also a lot of other variables that they look at that's not covered on their own website, also for good reason.

                            I guess we're just going to agree to disagree and hey, that's okay. Nothing wrong with a civil debate.

                      Uhm. Your sig says "Syndicated duplicate content is web spam! Google hates it, and so do I.". So yeah, I take from your sig that you hate it and that you think google hates it, too.

                      I will leave the discussion for tonight, btw. Not because I don't enjoy it, but because I need to get some sleep. Besides, I think we're having some fundamental issues with the meanings of certain terms in this thread (terms like "syndication" and "duplicate"). That makes the discussion more or less pointless, since we're not talking about the same things. I'm too tired to dissect who means what with which term...

                  Sorry for the double post, forgot to add that before...

                  Just because some piece of content is repeated somewhere doesn't mean somebody sees it more than once. E.g. most people read one local newspaper. If the local newspaper wouldn't syndicate stories from elsewhere just because they are duplicate, those people would miss out on a lot. (and the local newspaper would have a lot more work, basically for nothing)

                  And in return: If I happen to come twice about a particularly good piece of content, I usually won't mind. Way better than coming across two unique pieces of rubbish.

      Hi Georg - this thread isn't about submitting to article directories. It's about finding and building relationships with content syndication partners (the clue's in the title, the OP and the subsequent conversation!).

        If you really want to be taken seriously among professionals, I would suggest a minor change in your domain name to rxadvice. Such gaffes may significantly reduce any otherwise authoritative credentials of your articles. Other than that, you will find a large swath of publishers within relevant niches in the Directory of Ezines.

          I have a bad luck there @myob. That domain name wasn't available by the time we started the project. Hope the domain name which is there right now will not harm big time.

    @Alexa,

    Thanks for your replies and other threads referred. Read all those and still reading :-)

    Came across with few questions if you don't mind.

    1. Should i market my ezinearticles profile or articles to be picked by fellow bloggers?

    2. What is the difference between articles submissions and Ezine submissions? If yes, how do we find or reach Ezine publishers?

    3. Will you advise to post all the blog content to article directories or create new for article directories and use that also in your blog.

    4. Can you explain a bit more on your sayings? "it's possible to run an article syndication business very successfully without actually using article directories at all"

    5. I agree that personal relationships has to be made for better and long run syndication partnership. So that means, just submitting your articles to directories is not enough. So how do we go about finding partners/bloggers to try creating personal relationship?

      I would say that this is definitely something you can do to get the eyes of syndication partners in front of your content initially. Then, once you have started to build up a network, here is what you do: Publish your content on your own site first. After that, you let your partners publish the content before you post it to any article directories. This is their "bonus" for publishing your stuff on a consistent basis.

      2. What is the difference between articles submissions and Ezine submissions? If yes, how do we find or reach Ezine publishers?
      As far as I know, the only difference is in the type of website they are running. This would be the question I am least equipped to answer. I'm sure the process of making them syndication partners would be the same as any other website though.

      3. Will you advise to post all the blog content to article directories or create new for article directories and use that also in your blog.
      You really shouldn't make content with the sole purpose of publishing it on directories. Article Directory Marketing is the form of article marketing that is no longer very effective. Just follow this publishing funnel with all of your content:

      Your Site>Your Syndication Network>Article Directories

      4. Can you explain a bit more on your sayings? "it's possible to run an article syndication business very successfully without actually using article directories at all"
      Not my words; but I think I know what she means. Article directories are just a means to an end. It is a platform that you can use to put your content on display and say "here, I want you to syndicate this". It is not, however, the be all end all to getting content syndicated. You are free to come up to potential partners "cold", assuming that you can do so in a polite way and are offering excellent content. In this way, directories are not necessary. Once you gain traction and don't have to go looking for places to syndicate your work, you can theoretically just stop posting to article directories at all. Of course, it would still be beneficial to do so in my opinion (for the purpose of passively finding new syndication partners).

      5. I agree that personal relationships has to be made for better and long run syndication partnership. So that means, just submitting your articles to directories is not enough. So how do we go about finding partners/bloggers to try creating personal relationship?
      As stated above, you can always find blogs/sites/ezines in your niche and go in "cold" to offer your content. Also, you can check your submitted articles to see if they have been published by others. Do so by taking some of the text (I've heard 10-15 sentences) from your article and Google searching for any matches. Find the sites that have syndicated your work, and shoot them an email. Thank them for syndicating your work and offer to give them your future content before it hits the directories. More often than not they will be glad to take up the offer. Hence, a relationship is born.


      I think I nailed those questions pretty well .

      Your articles, and yourself as a content provider.

      Not your EZA profile.

      You need to be contacting people who are (or "who might be") looking for content, to publish in your niche, and syndicate your articles that way, as widely as possible.

      An "Ezine" is an "online magazine". It's circulated by email, not on a website. (It's actually true that some ezines do also get one copy archived online on a website). An "ezine" is basically a "newsletter". Their publishers are continually looking for content. Some of them have many thousands or tens of thousands of subscribers, and submitting your articles to them is a way of attracting floods of targeted traffic.

      (Not free, I'm afraid, but very professional and worthwhile, and without it, you just have to be very inventive/imaginative with how you use Google and "hope for the best").

      For myself, I do have some content on my sites that I don't syndicate anywhere at all. Things like "product reviews" nobody will want to publish, clearly. They're "salesy" (by comparison with articles, anyway), and nobody's going to syndicate anything "salesy".

      But all the "articles" I have syndicated as widely as possible. Including to an article directory (or even two).

      Never submit content to an article directory which you haven't previously published and had indexed on your own site/blog.

      This is absolutely fundamental to any kind of article marketing.

      Giving an article directory the initial indexation-rights is just a "no-gain" ploy.

      The sole purpose of submitting anything to an article directory is for it to be found and syndicated by publishers (whether they're ezine publishers or webmasters).

      You can have your own syndication network of people who re-publish your articles, without needing to put them in an article directory at all.

      For me, dumping a copy in EZA is the very last thing I do with each article - a kind of afterthought, just in case any other publishers I haven't yet contacted find it there and I get a little bit of extra syndication out of it, that way. (It doesn't cost anything to do, after all - there's no downside). This is only "passive syndication", i.e. you dump it in EZA, and after that it's out of your hands: either you get lucky with it or you don't. I do, actually, quite often "get lucky" with them, and it is worth doing as a little extra. And it was actually how I started. But it's hardly the mainstay of article syndication, and not what you'd want to rely on as your only syndication method.

      I think these two little threads will really help you a lot: they're not long and between them they answer everything you've asked above (and more!) ...

      You need to look for publishers of ezines and webmasters in your niche. And there are many offline syndication methods, too.

      I didn't go past the front page (I don't like to be registered on too many sites lol); but from what I read that is what it seems like. I think zimbio is supposed to be something of an "automatic syndicator".

      I think by definition it is articles syndication; but not the whole process. Zimbio would only be one partner, so don't think that the website is the be all end all of your syndication needs. They seem to only syndicate to other pages in their network...so there are plenty more outside of Zimbio that you will want to get published on.

    Wow. This is all just amazing to me. Are we forgetting what Google is? It's basically an indexing and delivery system for web content. It either likes certain content, is impassive towards certain content, or it dislikes certain content. What other options are there?
    It clearly states its position on all material referenced in this thread and how it acts upon it when it's encountered.
    Google has little or no use for duplicate copies of the same content and it has different ways of addressing duplication as it finds it. There's 'innocent' duplication, generally called 'syndication' - it would prefer it not to exist, but if you must have at it, try and let Google know where the original is and where the copies are. Then there's 'manipulative' duplication. It doesn't like being bated and it's fairly clear in its statements how it handles things when it catches you trying to be manipulative. If you're caught up somewhere in the grey zone, caught in some 'no mans land' between genuine and manipulation, or if you're looking to promote the distribution of multiple copies of your content around the web, but don't know how to do it properly, then either learn fast or just don't do it.

    @ Rooze, as per Alexa's sayings, its not rocket science. Just have the article released in your blog first. Wait upto it gets indexed in Google. You can search for the article URL in google and find if its indexed or not. Then distribute the articles. Even if someone steals, Google treats you as the original. Seems pretty straight and simple no?

    Nags puts the nail in the coffin there ... post the article to your site FIRST and you'll be the one getting any benefit from Google Traffic ... but lets rehash what Alexa has said over and over ...

    It's not really about Google ... it's about getting your articles syndicated and getting YOUR link on their site ... getting a quality backlink (which does help with google ranks), but MORE IMPORTANTLY corralling a good portion of their traffic over to your site ... without the need of Google at all!
