Would this be considered creating duplicate content?

6 replies
Can you please tell me if this would be considered by Google to be duplicate content?

Fact:
I have 25 clients in a sports niche that I build, maintain & market websites for. These clients want blogs but dont want to write their own or pay for new articles each week.

Idea:
I enter 1 article in spin syntax into my system which spins the article one time for each client and automatically posts to their website. So after completion, all 25 clients have a blog post which is unique; albiet unique from a spun article.

My thoughts:
Although each article would be spun, I do keep reading that Google is getting more strict about spun articles. But the reason I wonder if this scenario is considered duplicate content is because each article is on its own site and is not used for link bait to lead back somewhere else. Its simply spun content sitting on a site.

Can you please give me your feedback? Thanks!

    as long as the structure is totally different, it is not considered as a duplicate content....

      When you say different structure, do you mean something like different number of paragraphs, word count and things like that?

        Don't spin on a word level. Google can see that the structure of the posts are the same. Rewrite every sentence, vary the lengths of each sentence, and spin a word or two in every sentence as a nested spin. Check a few renditions of your article to make sure it reads well.....and you won't have a problem with Google.

        That way each post will be a different length, as will each sentence.

        Make sure the titles are more than spun. Write each one individually.

        Hope that helps. It's what I do.

    Google does not like spun articles. They would consider if duplicate content if they figured out that's what you were doing. But many people are still having success with spun articles because it can be hard for Google to detect. Of course they are always getting smarter and what works this month could get you in trouble the next.

      "Duplicate content" refers to multiple copies of the same or substantially similar text-files on one website. Even if you submitted them all identically, with no editorial changes at all, to 25 different websites, that still wouldn't be "duplicate content". However this would/might/can/could/should be considered by Google, one thing it isn't is duplicate content.

      (That's not to say that it will have any significant SEO benefits, either, of course. But then again, as all we article marketers are so well aware, most people want content because they want decent quality material on their sites for their visitors to read and engage with, not because they want "SEO benefits", of course).

      So, the answer to your question is a clear and unambiguous "No": it won't be considered duplicate content because it won't be duplicate content.

    If I was going to do this I would use spinnier chief, and use their compare function. You could create, maybe 40 spun articles, and then delete the ones that are too similar. Spinner chief provides you the uniqueness percentage data to do this, and makes it easy for you to delete those that are similar.
