Can SEO Linkvine's free content hurt my site?

by dp40oz 3 replies
I just recently started using the free content part of seo linkvine on a few of my pages. I love the idea of the whole thing and the articles are really filling out my sites content. Some of them are actually pretty decent reads. My question is im starting a new site thats in a great money making niche. Seo linkvine has a lot of articles in categories available that would fit my site perfectly im just not sure if this free content will end up hurting my site rather then helping it. Has anybody seen any results good or bad from using the free content service part of the site? Has it helped you at all with rankings, has it hurt you?

    It won't hurt you, but if the articles are being syndicated to multiple blogs, you're dealing with syndicated (and possibly duplicate, depending where it was published first) content.

    If it's duplicate content it certainly does NOT help you what so ever. Actually Google just implemented the Farmer update which further penalizes sites that use duplicate content.

    Basically as the saying has ALWAYS been, use unique content

    From the official Google Blog
    This update is designed to reduce rankings for low-quality sites—sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful. At the same time, it will provide better rankings for high-quality sites—sites with original content and information such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.

    Looks like all the free articles are spun.
