Ezine Articles as come up with a plugin for wordpress that lets you add all your wordpress posts, both old and new to Ezine Articles; there by creating back links to your site.
I've done it a couple of times and it's quite easy; a little bit more work for the old ones but the new ones are simple and it helps with your content.
I personally would not want my blog content being duplicated across the internet, I have become increasingly disappointed with eZine articles recently as it seems that non of the people who use my work on other sites include ANY of the backlinks or the author resource boxes. This basically means I am giving away my work for nothing but the PR0-PR1 backlink on eZine articles itself, I would rather use higher quality article directories such as Hubpages, or simply make my own.
I have almost similar experience. The difference is that they do include my links and resource box but the links are nothing but text. I have tried both kind of links i.e. the ones with anchor text and without it. So no backlinks at all.
We have this feature here at HP since long ago, "RSS Capsules"
Hi SunSeven & thisisoli
It seems wired to me that article sites are allowed on the internet at all. From what I can gather people go on article sites and use relevant articles to put on all different types of sites, consequently the same article my be on hundreds of sites.
Surely this is all duplicate content.
I've read on a number of occasions that the only bed duplicate content is if it's on your own web site?
Another question is why did the highest rated Article site come out with this plugin?
Google doesn't tell you everything; True ?
Indeed Google does not tell you everything, and some writers argue on the downsides of duplicate content.
My view is that Duplicate content is always bad.
Article directories such as Hubpages are really good, since your work is not distributed to other websites.
Article directories such as eZine are rapidly losing value in my opinion.
The widget that eZine has created is simply to make more content appear on their own website, they don't really care if it harms the writers other websites.
I am still running 2 duplicate content hubs. They are both poems by a famous Australian poet and much loved.
There are famous Australians?
From personal experience using any for of duplicate content causes problems at some point, I ahve lsot a couple of high traffic sites that way, and for a while I just bought sites of digital point and had them autoupdate from eZine.
However I soon learned that duplicate content knocked these sites out in a matter of months, whereas even sparse post updates could keep income flowing for years to come.
I wonder if the Banjo Patterson poems would flag up as duplicate though? It's not bound by copyright law anymore.
Clancy of the Overflow is a great poem for writer inspiration. It always puts me in the right frame of mind. Especially the 'thumbnail dipped in tar' bit.
Both poems are from Banjoe, and one is "Clancy of the overflow"
The other duplicate one is The man from snowy river.
I feel it is the fact that many other sites would have these poems as well.
My other Banjoe poem is the bastard from the bush which has outrageous slang and very blue language, but no duplicate notice.
Hubpage's staffer Norah has already given me some advice on how to fix them though. I will write about the poems in the hubs and put some photos in them for starters.
Duplicate content penalties are not to do with copyright, they are more a reflection on a websites quality in Googles algorithm, as far as I can tell at any rate.
So why are article sites allowed to exist?
and why is every marketing site pushing them as the top back linking tools.
Article sites exist for people with blogs and sites and no creative spirit at all to take your work for free and use it as there own, dah.
These sites used to be "paid for" as in you get a commission from what they pay for the article, but the article sites didn't make enough money this way, so they opened it to everyone "free" so they get tons of traffic and ad clicks.
Its just business, and the best business is automated. How do you automate semi-unique content? Not with a script, but with real life humans.
If the backlinks could be forced onto people who use the articles, then it would be a good thing. A win win one would say.
