    Duplicate article postings
    I was wondering what the SEO results would be if I wrote an article for my blog but also posted it to 1 or more article services.

    Thanks

    Yes, specifically how will it effect the website's rankings and position in Google and other search engines?

    I've never been a hard core "SEO" guy, I just know that a copy, of a copy, of a copy usually loses clarity and usefullnes, should be the same in SEO

    I strongly believe that Marketing using common sense always yields results that make sense.

    It's a negative to SEO efforts, truly unique content is powerful. Duplicate content within your own domain is not a problem, so long as you use the canonical tag appropriately - however that is not an option when you submit your content to article services.

    I would focus first on good structure within your articles in relation to headings/subheadings and optimization on keywords that fit tightly with your focus... Most big content sites don't use article services, and I don't think its really good for small sites either.

    It's a losing proposition all the way around. Chances are extremely good that Google would find your piece on the article directory FIRST which means your blog would be viewed as the copy instead of the other way around.
