Is Submitting My Blog Post To Blogger, Wordpress & Tumblr a Bad Idea?

14 replies
Hi,

Every time I add my a new post to my blog on my website, it posts the same blog post to wordpress, blogger, tumblr and diigo. I was wondering if this is bad for seo considering duplicate content. I do this to make sure i get lots of exposure to my blog and a bit of manual link building.
I ran the google rich snippets tool on my blogger blog and it says that the author is unverified, but it does have my google plus profile url next to the unverified box. Is this because it sees it as duplicate content becuase it has picked the content up on my website blog?

Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

    it could be getting flagged as dupe content but if you are using these as buffer links then i would try maybe rewriting them a bit and then posting them, that way you will get more recognition for those links.

      It isn't duplicate content.

      "Duplicate content" is multiple copies of the same text-file within one website. It's syndicated content.

      What do you mean by "exposure to your blog"? I'm an article syndicator, myself - my articles go on many relevant sites, but not on Blogger, Wordpress.com or Tumblr. That wouldn't help my sites at all.

      I don't think those backlinks are worth anything real. They're non-context-relevant sites and PR-0 backlinks unless your pages there have acquired some PR, which would barely be relevant anyway. I wouldn't do it, myself - but you definitely won't be penalized for duplicate content for doing so, because it isn't duplicate content.

      What? And put content not previously published and indexed on your own site on pages at Blogger, Wordpress.com and Tumblr?! :rolleyes:

      You don't seriously imagine that the quality of the backlink is somehow, magically, going to vary according to whether or not the content to which it's attached has previously been published?

      Sorry, but this is just completely wrong.

    As long as you post your unique content onto your blog first and have it indexed by google before submitting anywhere else, you're fine..

    Search engine may take some time to index your content, some websites takes few hours, some take few days, some take weeks or even months. If you're using wordpress blog, you can always install "XML sitemap" to speed up the indexing process.

    Hope i'm answering your question,

    I use the other sites too for linking. Let me know how you do with getting verified.

    I agree with JeremiahSay let the content on your blog get indexed first... but for the sake of easy backlinks, just post your content on your blog, then digg it, wait for a bit check to see if it's indexed then blast it to those other web properties.

    or you could find a plug in that will auto spin the submission when you post on your blog.

    .
    If the websites at wordpress, blogger, tumblr and diigo were created by you for the purpose of backlinks then this may not be a good idea. Looks more like a blog farm.

    Reminds me of a process that was taught by a membership site except that they taught you how to post a different article to these web 2.0 sites like blogger and tumblr with a link back to your original article on your website for a backlink that worth nothing like Alexa said.

      thanks for the article on duplicate content Alexa. I have a blog on my main site and I want to get lots of visitors/backlinks from wordpress and blogger as they already have lots of active members. This is my strategy.

      I also +1 my website blog as soon as i make the post to get it indexed quick as possible.

      I also seem to get many likes from my wordpress blog. All of the blogs i have on blogger, tumblr and wordpress are basically carbon copies of my website blog.

    I suggest submit to your own blog first, and then do some rewriting, and post to other sites.

    The posting to other social media sites is ok. However, to web 2.0 sites (wp and blogger), I suggest you write some other articles for them, someone has suggested spinning, that will be good. Then increase the number of sites where you post your original article (twitter, linkd in..)

      I (and everyone here actually making a living from article marketing of any kind) strongly suggest that you don't.

      It makes very little sense at all to put on sites like Blogger any content that you haven't previously published and had indexed on your own site first, for all the reasons explained at such length and in such detail in all the thread like this one: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...marketing.html

      It won't "be good". It'll be a waste of time, as it always has been. Everyone who actually makes a living from article marketing (rather than from supplying spinning software or services) will tell you the same thing about that. For people open-minded enough to read them, these six items explain much more, at greater length and in greater detail.
      • this post explains the benefits of spinning
      • the first half (or so) of this thread contains a good discussion of what you can gain from spinning articles
      • the advice on this subject given by so many people throughout most of this thread has been really helpful to many people here
      • on the meaning and significance of "duplicate content", in this context, this little post from expert article marketer Anne Pottinger includes direct quotations from Google's WebMaster Central Blog on the subject (not easy to find a more authoritative source than that!)
      • this little article is also a very useful and accurate explanation of the subject
      • this post, and its links, explain in detail the closely related subject of how article directories really work and why they exist
