One important trend I’ve noticed over the past (6) months is that many of our expert authors are submitting original articles to EzineArticles that they haven’t submitted or posted anywhere else on the Internet including their own website.
Why I think this trend is happening:
- Our expert authors who do this feel that they avoid any hint of duplicate content penalty against their website.
- It builds their credibility with us because we can’t find their content anywhere else when we check.
- They/you don’t have to compete with EzineArticles for traffic as your website gets traffic from your content and you get traffic from EzineArticles from your content. Themes are the same, but words are very different and completely unique.
One thing I’d caution any member who is doing the above strategy: Be sure that you crafted each version of your article by hand and do not fall prey to the software article rewriter crowd. We actively terminate and ban members who we determine are submitting software rewritten content. To us, it sticks out as plain as day thanks largely to our proprietary software designed to identify what our human eyes don’t readily catch.
Just to be clear, we do not require content submitted to be exclusive to EzineArticles.com; but it must be exclusive to your author name, meaning that we should not be able to find any content you submit to us anywhere else on the Internet under someone else’s or no name.
