I'm confused...please help :confused:

11 replies
Hi,

Long back I had written some 50+ article for a website, which was live for 2 years or so. Afterward, I took the website down. for last 2 years the website is no longer available, so the articles which I placed on that website is also no longer on the web.

My question is this:

If I publish those articles on a new website, how search engines will treat them? Will those articles be treated as duplicate content?


:confused:

Thanks for the help

    Probably it wont, but I guess the only way to find out is actually republishing them.

    If your content is not published any where then you can use the content for your site.

    It is ok to republish them, but better if you post new articles. Good luck..

    Just put a sentence in your article in brackets and Google it (exact phrase search). If you can't find it on Google, that means the content is not indexed, and if you publish them, they should be treated as new content.

      He is right. If you cant find your content on the net, then thats not there and you can use your articles.

      I have done that with some of the articles, and I didn't find anything in Google, though not tested in bing.

      I just wanted to reconfirm if that is it i need to do or something else is required to check duplicate content

    Don't overthink, just take action, do it and you will see results.

    Anyway, if they are not currently published anywhere else, search engines should look at them as fresh content.

    Even if you had done the same thing 2 years ago, while the former site was also still online, they wouldn't have been treated as duplicate content, because they wouldn't have been duplicate content (they would have been syndicated content).

    The great likelihood is that they'll now be treated as de novo content. But there's no possible downside to trying it, anyway.
