    How do you know where an article first was published?
    "Why a Clear Focus Is Essential to Success" is published here and here:

    www.inc.com/articles/201103/why-a-clear-focus-is-essential-to-success.html

    and

    www.businessinsider.com/six-reasons-why-big-dreams-and-laser-focus-succeed-2011-2

    I'm trying to drive traffic with both unique & syndicated contact and curious to know what tools out there can let you know where an article originated from? (i.e. where it was first published online)

    Only tool I know of is your eyes.

    the inc.com article references the businessinsider.com article and posting dates are visible. Hovering over the "Read the article at: Business Insider." link shows a referrer in the URL - ?partner=incmagazine

    Perhaps it is syndicated/paid for content...

    I don't think there is good so far, because we search depend on search engines, but there are websites who blocked search engines. So, no good way to do that I think.

    I agreed with Convergence. Actually, the date and time shows everything. “businessinsider: Feb. 10, 2011, 8:30 AM & inc.com: Mar 30, 2011.”

    I also don't think so its possible, our search depend on search engines and mostly sites blocked it.

    if that is visible this should be it. otherwise google a snippet of the article and see if it does not come up somewhere else.

    I've had pretty good success with searching on a phrase enclosed in quotation marks. A lot of people just copy the text without making any effort to revise it, so this can be quite effective. I suggest that you start with phrases at the beginning of the article.

    Cheers, Bruce
