    Do you guys edit the one article you're going to post on several websites?

    For example, when I write an article I post in on here, Helium, constant content if possible, and my blog.  But this means I edit it several times to make it different. Is this necessary?

    You are supposed to make sure each article is unique on all of those sites except your blog.

    I personally only write one article for each of those sites, it's easier than rewriting the same one for me. If I write on the same subjects I chose different aspects to write about.

    I think it's very poor.  A skilled writer can say the exact same thing ten different ways.  It's just laziness and poor ethics, and ever worse strategy to post the same thing in more than one place.

    Seriously - there isn't a WORSE strategy that you could try.

    instead try to write a new article. but if you want to keep a theme going or you want your back links to be relevant then choose a sub category on the same subject. good luck wink

    Obviously on web 2.0 sites. It's required to submit unique original content that is not found anywhere else.

    That's what I do on hubpages, squidoo and also ezinearticles. Since they are all meticulous when it comes to this.

    But I do use the same article and submit it to other article sites or social bookmarking sites.

    What I do is just use a spinner(The Best Spinner) that spins my articles and replaces some of the words with synonyms. It takes less than a minute to get a decent article up.  Compared to spending 15minutes to edit the entire article manually. Which can be time consuming.

    I then use those articles and link them to my more authoritative articles on hubpages or my blogs. Thus strengthening them in search engines eyes, in result they give off better quality backlinks to my personal sites.

    Yeah you definitely need to be submitting unique articles to each website.  This is huge and mostly due to the google panda update.  Google is really laying the law down with the duplicate content regulations.

    For a clear-cut answer:
    If I am going to post the article on several of my websites, yes - I edit them to the point that they become unique.

    In this Pandamonium, you don't want to be hit by the slap again. This is why we are on sub-domains now. Making the article unique is more important than ever.

    Plus, Google has already said that if any of its products is found to be linked with plagiarism and/or copied content, the Google product is withdrawn from the one that violates it. So, your AdSense account is in danger. Now you might say its written by you, but not only yours, but the ads of those revenue sharing sites are also displayed in your content. They might ban you for placing their AdSense account in jeopardy.

    Yes, it is very necessary in this SEO and online world. Its not  necessary if you're publishing an e-book or in a newspaper/magazine.

    If I had several sites I wrote for, I would write several articles on the same subject. I would not wait until I write the for HP then edit it.

    Make each article unique with a different spin. Make it seem like a different person wrote each article.
