Is it similar to curation where like 80% of the article is copied word-for-word and then you just add your own opening and/or closing statements?

    Ok. So you want to know how to "create" content to syndicate, not actually "how to" syndicate it. < Your title confused me a little.

    How you create content to syndicate is entirely up to you.

    In the past, you could use Article Marketing Robot to BLAST a bunch of spun garbage. That strategy actually worked to increase rankings. Now you're probably better off creating content that is worth syndicating in the first place.

    Here's the common "white hat" advice you'll get (may as well get it out of the way):

    1. Create "good content" that is specific to your niche
    2. Contact authority sites in your niche, and GIVE THEM the awesome content for FREE, as long as they link back to your main site.

    That seems to be the strategy that the best article marketers use these days. Whether "article syndication" is even a worthwhile addition to your business is a whole 'nother question altogether.

      Brendan, thanks for the reply.

      I was under the impression that content syndication is basically posting the same article (not spun whatsoever) to multiple sites while linking back to the original source as well as dropping your own link under the "Related Links" part (usually at the bottom of the article).

    For the most part, when you syndicate content, it is just the same article being posted on other websites with a link pointing back to your site.

    For the record, that is NOT the description of curation. It is the way the lazy and uninformed may do it and then call it curation because they don't want to say that they're too lazy to do it right.
