With the spreading of the knowledge that more and more large websites are employing ?duplicate content filters? to look for content which appears multiple times on the internet, article writers and marketers are wrongfully panicking. If my article appears ?too many? times or ?multiple? times on the internet, I'll be ?blacklisted? and my work could go down the tubes. Nothing could be further from the truth. Here's why:
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 website or having it appear on only one website on the world wide web would most certainly not allow it to reach anywhere near its potential of readers. The whole point behind article marketing is for an article to appear throughout the internet at numerous websites online. Each of those websites catering to a focused segment of the genre or market the article is targeted to. To attempt to prevent this from happening is absolutely ludicrous.
Bear in mind that ?duplicate content filters? have one primary purpose that actually benefits original content authors; that is to seek out and identify unauthorized use of original content. For example, run a Google or Yahoo search using your name in parentheses like this: ?Larry M. Lynch?. I'll almost bet you're going to find quite a number of hits if you've written or posted extensively. Go ahead, check the ones you don't know. Find any you didn't know about? It would be a miracle if you didn't. Did you find any that used your content in a manner you didn't authorize? Search your article titles. Find any that didn't use your name or give you credit for your original content? Then it's time to write the site webmaster or company PR to request correct content posting complete with byline and credit.
As for the authorized, desirable postings of your original content, write to them too. Thank them for posting your article(s). Ask if they?d like even more of your original content on a regular basis. So don't fear upcoming duplicate content filters that might be employed by search engines. Plagiarizers and pirates should beware. Writers and article marketers: Keep writing. Keep posting and go for the numbers with your quality articles.
