Mike Valentine on Syndication

EzineArticles expert author, Michael Banks Valentine recently mused on the question as to whether the duplicate content penalty is worth fretting about or not. Read this article, “Article Marketing to be Destroyed by Upcoming Duplicate Content Filters Employed by Search Engines?

He gives a good history of how this issue came to be, but the nugget was at the bottom of the article: “Your articles are no less valuable to the web community because they are syndicated and that appreciation is displayed clearly when they are used extensively across multiple web sites. Write on article marketers.”

I couldn’t agree more!

If our authors knew how many times per month that high profile reporters and producers from the major networks (NBC, CBS, ABC, and major newspapers) ask us to put them in touch with a specific author because they are doing a special that would like to interview one of our authors… –>our authors would know that the benefits outweigh the risks.

I completely concur, not only because it makes obvious sense, but because in my actual observations of my own articles, I have seen the evidence.

If article content doesn’t appear numerous times across the world wide web, then what’s article marketing coming to? Posting an article to one site or having it appear on only one site would most certainly not reach anywhere near its potential of readers. The whole point behind article marketing is for an article to appear throughout the internet at numerous sites online. Each of those sites catering to a focused segment of the genre or market the article is targeted too. To attempt to prevent this from happening is absolutely ludicrous.
Keep writing. Keep posting. Go for the numbers with your quality articles.
