There seems to be conflicting theories with regard to backlinks generated from duplicate content. I would just like to know if I submit the same article to multiple directories, will it be of any value in terms of backlink juice?
Many "experts" seem to believe that it wouldn't, hence the popularity of spinning software. But if this is the case, then there is no value when a webmaster extracts an article from an article directory that I have written and places it on his/her website.
All thoughts and comments are welcome, but statements backed by experience will be more valuable?
