Hello there,

I have a 5-6 page website which was created a few weeks ago to promote just one clickbank product,,,, I am going to add an article page to it too...

The question is this:
Can I use the articles which are in the affiliate page of my vendor website and copy/past them in the article page of my website? Am I ok to do this?
My page contains almost 2000 unique words written by me,,,, and the articles which I am going to copy from the vendor site are almost 1000 words in total.

Thank you.

    Ask the vendor. In my experience, most allow it. Not sure what it'll do in terms of SEO or anything, but the vendor should clear up any copyright concerns that you may have.

    Why are you going to copy/paste it? Unique content is the thing you should pay a big attention when you promote products that maybe several million other people are also promoting it... You need to be different!!

    The better thing to do is to write the content your self. If you want results, you better put in the effort.

    I would not copy it, it's too risky. You should definitely write it yourself, or just rewrite the article you want to copy using your own words, so it'll be unique.

    I would dare you not to do that though. You are doing copyright infringement even just for a small part of the article that you copied. If I were you, I would suggest that you should ask permission from the vendor or the original writer of the article first, so that you would be on the safe side. If he said yes, then go for it. But if not, don't dare to defy the content owner.

    I suggest you not to copy paste any article. Unique article is the best option. If you cant write unique article then re-write those articles.

    Not a good idea, even if you had permission.

    You would not be the only one who copied them, so the odds of you ranking any of them would be small.

    They are written to sell a product. Your articles should be written to get people to a website that sells. There really is a way to write articles that get people to click on a link to find out more.

    Learn about the about the differences between selling-from-this-site-right-now articles and articles that encourage people to go to another site and buy; then write your own articles.

    You should talk to the Vendor for permission. I don't think it'll be difficult to get permission. If the Vendor give you permission you can use them without any confusion.

    Don't do this. Because it will consider as copied content by search engines. So, always prefer to write unique content.

    In my opinion you have to write it by yourself rather than copy and paste as because it can violate some rules of seo.

    If you count on any organic traffic - don`t do it cos it will be taken by google as duplicate content, avoid cuplicate content if you care about organic traffic. You can buy articles for few bucks from Ezinearticles members for example

    No you shouldn't copy content from other website and paste it on your website. This is not going to help you rank your website.

    It is better to use unique content very time. Do not copy past the content to other website.

    I would say no for that.

    You can rewrite the article in your own words though.

    However if you really need to use he exact text, you can consider screen capture (take a print screen) of the text as an image and host it on your blog, alongside with your article.

    Hope that helps.

    As you said that your article is contains 2000 unique words, that means you can write the article by your self, then why you want to just copy/paste?

    Write unique article for your website. Duplicate content will never work.
