Is Article Distribution bad in Google Eyes

    Hullo, i have been planning to do some article distribution through one of the major article distribution sites. But i understand that my article will be distributed to more than 200 sites with my Links included

    Well, this means that most of them will appear as duplicate content and i fear that Google might ban my site since i will have links to it in the resource box.

    I would like to know from your whether article distribution might hurt my site due to the duplicate content created on many ezine sites.

      I do some research on your question. I found a URL and I think this URL will  help you to find out the right answer.  http://comluv.com/google-thinks-article … ing-sucks/

    Duplicate content won't get your website banned (think of how easy it would be to knock your competition off the rankings simply by spamming content for them), but I'm not sure it'll help your site all that much either.

    From what I gather only one of the articles, the one which Google decides is the original, will provide any passive benefit. Even then it will be marginal. If it's reach you're looking for I'm sure there are better ways (onlywire is an example).

    Just my opinion World of the wise.

    I have been planning to use Isnare, do you have ant experience with it

    1. thooghun profile image82
      thooghunposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Ah yes, I know of it but have never used it. The problem with any of these mass distribution services is that not only are very few backlinks indexed, but they are of low quality.

      A single well written article on Squidoo or Hubpages (or possibly gather, infobarrel and others) will be worth far more than thousands of those kinds of links.

      Again, I could be wrong, I wonder what other hubbers have to say.

      I am agree with thooghun, but if you still want articles distribution make sure to do it manually and prepare a database of some good and traffic generating sites like buzzle and ezinearticles. Also mind that do not distribute teh same content in so many directories, according to me you should only use 5-7 article directories per article.

      All the authoritative and high traffic generating article directory only accepts unique content. So plan accordingly

    The issue, i want to submit an article to Isnare which is a very good Article directory. Then i will pay them to distribute my article to more than 400 sites. this means that my article will find its way to 400 article sites in a short time, some of them  have good PR and other do not have.

    Should i go ahead?

    1. thooghun profile image82
      thooghunposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      The PR you're referring to is the PR of the index page of the site I assume? The only thing posting on such sites, even if the links themselves are flagged as do-follow (and that's a big if), will gain you is helping your sites indexing speed (more GoogleBot traffic). The PR of the article pages themselves will end up being (in 99% of cases) N/A or if you're lucky a PR 0.

      A well written hub can net you a PR 2-PR 3 which is far more valuable than hundreds of PR 0s. Bear also in mind that the quality of the backlink is everything (relevance, authority) and that PR is just one in many factors used in calculating link juice.

      Then again, if I recall correctly, Isnare charges $2 per distribution which is hardly a fortune. At least you'd know first hand if it helped without bankrupting yourself.

      My advice is still a solid no, however. Invest the time in creating quality backlinks instead, it'll pay off.

    I think the money i will pay to Isnare is too little for me, and i am ready to pay it. i just want to know if it will be good for me, or it has some dis advantages?

      From what I gather, the idea of article marketing is that you write a high quality article and submit it to free article distribution sites, like ezine.

      It will be so well written, that hundreds of people will want to copy it, complete with your links.

      I can't help thinking a paid site will accept any old junk (and sorry I am not saying that is what you will be writing) and force distributing it.

      It won't do you any good if the article you write is not great. Don't suppose it will do any harm either, mind you.

      Why pay for something you can get for free?

  6. world of the wise profile image68
    world of the wiseposted 6 years ago

    I know i can submit quality articles by my self, but distributing my quality article through Isnare at $5 is a good deal to me. I have noticed that some of my articles i posted at Go Articles and Ezine have been coped, but the people who coped them also removed the links.

    Back to the point, are you saying, it is ok to use an article distribution site and still remain in good terms with google?

    1. thooghun profile image82
      thooghunposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      You may remain on good terms with Google, but I think what everyone here concurs with is the following: Why pay $5 for nothing?

    Buzzle is so hard to get approved nowadays. I think it is closed to new author signups.  Make some into videos, mp3 and distribute and even change the word count, paragraph count, etc.

    copied?  No (gasping)  people will steal,scrape and do whatever to content, scripts and even designs. It's like a paradise for some. It's just like certain Hyundai models looking like a Lexus on the outside.

    I pay $5 because i will get a good number backlinks when my quality articles are distributed
