    Yes ... that's what they're there for. The author has given everyone permission to do that, by submitting the article there. Just re-publish in accordance with Ezine Articles' terms of service for publishers: Terms of Service For Publishers Who Wish To Reprint Any Content From EzineArticles.com

    Yes, you can do that. You can even use other people's articles on your blog (curation of content), provided you give the appropriate attribution for it.

      Write your own articles. It is not that hard. If you build a business/blog using other peoples articles you are not going to get nearly the response that you would get if you are writing your own.

      If you really want any long term success, you are going to want to put yourself in the leader position and do your own thing.

      Im just sayin....

      No.

      At least, it's unlikely that there'd be any SEO benefit from doing this. Google says not, anyway. (But some people do think that's true only about 80%/85% of the time, and that there might still be some small benefits, overall). There are certainly no penalties for it, if you were thinking that.

      Remember: it isn't duplicate content - it's syndicated content (that's what many of the world's leading news and sports websites live on, etc.) But even duplicate content isn't penalized anyway, as Google explains so openly and repeatedly on their WebMaster Central Blog.

      No. That would actually be theft (it's still a "derivative work" under the law of copyright), as well as obviously breaching the article directory's TOS.

    Yeah you can... just make sure you dont strip out the "resource box" area - and give the author full credit.

    P.S. Consider making your own content also (alot of it) so that you can be perceived as the obvious expert in your niche.

    If you copy articles from Ezine articles, your pages are likely to get penalized by Google for duplicate content. Just best to write your own content or pay someone else to write it.

    If you're going to use an Ezine Article on your blog, why not curate it instead? Just copy 100-150 words from it and create a hyperlink. Then write an introduction and conclusion around it. That way, you're still writing your own content.

    Put it on your blog first - ping it. Let it sit for 48 hours then put it on EA. That's how I do it myself and have never had anything but good results. Just make sure the thing is excellent before you post it.

    I saw that it is a better idea to write a longer blog post for your blog with more details, and post at EZA a short version of this long article, instead of submitting the entire article as it is.

    I change the title and I submit half article to EZA, which becomes like a second article, more compact, which has basic meaning by itself.

    Blog readers like detailed information, while the audience of article directories seems to prefer something shorter.

    I’m getting more RSS feed readers with my longer blog posts and giving better lessons to the public.

    The articles published at EZA are driving traffic to my websites. EZA is becoming stronger with time, after Google’s dramatic changes.

    I can't remember the last time I read an Ezine article that benefited me. There are better sources of content, and I sure wouldn't want my good writing next to many of the articles I see on Ezine sites, much less distributed through these sites.

      I hear you, I think, but I must say that doesn't particularly bother me, to be honest.

      They're not "next to" them in any way that actually matters to me.

      The way I look at it is that the only people who ever find the EZA copy of my articles are people searching inside Ezine Articles' database with their search function (in other words, publishers).

      It's not as if my potential customers are able or likely to find those copies ... at least not until they've been syndicated from Ezine Articles (thankfully!), which is all they're there for anyway.

      This is where those "Panda updates" effectively did us such a big favor, by making sure that those copies won't be found in Google's SERP's (as long as we always publish them ourselves and have them indexed on our own site before submitting them anywhere else). I don't mind them being found in EZA's SERP's by publishers looking for content, because those are all people who already know that there's a lot of crap there too, and they don't associate me with any of that. Customers don't search inside EZA.

        Saw a sitcom the other night where one of the characters offered up this notion:
        The reason bridesmaid dresses are often so hideous is to make the bride look even better by comparison.
        One could easily make the same case for most of the categories on EZA...

    There are plenty of good articles on ezine. you juste need to find them. Theres also a tons of low quality one as well. Thats why it is best to produce your own articles. I found that it actually takes me less time to write my own articles then trying to find qaulity ones i can use Or even rewriting them... Just create your own, google will thank you for being original.

    I have used my articles on a blog. As long as you follow the terms of service for Ezine Articles, you can put your work on your blog. I like the standards of quality that they require. Since I'm a free member of Ezine Articles, so article approval takes about 5-7 days.

    Totally off topic but still to do with Ezine, How many backlinks can be placed in the body of the article.

    Thanks.
