Posting Articles to Own Website

Hello how is everyone doing today? I am looking to see how we can find articles in relation to our field that we can post on our site. When doing this are you only able to link to those articles, or are you able to post the entire article? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello n_touch

Yes, in most cases you are able to publish the entire article on your website..

Some article directories allows you to even republish/reproduce their article so you shouldn't left backlink of author on your site.

Some article directories disallow you to remove author(BIO, signature) from article on your site.

Some article directories give you limit: you can use 10 articles/year but keep author links... etc.

There is variety of article directories with different rules
Just google article directories list and see TOS of each article directory.

hello n_touch,

i suggest you to write unique articles. that is because those articles from other websites will be containing lots of duplicate content issues in Google for your website.

The other thing to consider is:
Will including articles written by others be beneficial to your readers and your site. If it is a popular article your readers may have already seen it/read it else where therefore your copy of the article won't be.

A better approach would be to create your own article discussing the issues covered in the original article with references to pieces of the article (c/w link to the original).

And I always say this about getting articles from other sources: never ever copy everything verbatim. Always paraphrase. Not only will it keep you away from the crime of plagiarism, but it allows you to read the article and understand it.

Hi n_touch

You can get articles from article directories like ezine articles. HOWEVER each site has its own unique terms of service. For example, you can use ezine articles so long as you keep the signature in tact. In terms of finding article directories to begin with a simple Google search

If you already visitors to your site, then content from elsewhere which can retain them is fine. However, if you want to attract people to your site with duplicate content then you're going to have a very hard time.

I was looking to do both, allow visitors to not only view my articles, but also let them read other articles that were written in the same field. Just a few here and there. It was more from an informative aspect for my visitors than a SEO purpose, but the one thing I was worried about was the duplicate content. Thanks for all the responses.

We should have some good quality article prepared. First we need to choose what the topic we need to write some article is. . Collect some good article site. One article you can submit to many site, but very important to choose the relevant category.

Creating an article section or blog within the website is a good idea. But always write unique and informative content in your articles and give back links to targeted pages of your website.

Maybe the best of both worlds would be to paraphrase/ re-write the main messages of the article in your own blog (thus creating unique content and good for SEO rank) and have a link to the external article. As long as it's within your area of industry, this should be fine; if you have outlinks/ backlinks that relate to your area of industry, this will help Google etc. to associate your site with other similar sites which is again great for organic SEO.

Hi
We have been writing our articles, this idea of submitting others' articles to Directories is interesting but as many people have said I would stick with fresh original stuff to avoid problems with copyright etc, Also from personal experience a directory didn't approve my article once when I had used a "quote" from another source and I am assuming that this was the reason it was declined, as soon as I removed this it submitted.
Not sure thishelps but hope so.
Good luck!

You can certainly get free articles off of directories. However, you will have to leave the resource box intact, so you'll be linking to someone else's site.

Your content really should be establishing YOU as the expert - not someone else. Your best bet is to publish your own unique content on your site. That way, you're seen as the source of the information and the expert - and you won't have to link to anyone else.

Like Nicolebeckett mentionned, "Your content really should be establishing YOU as the expert".

If you know your subject, you don't need articles from others, and you don't need to take some terms from other articles.

I know from experience that Google will reward articles duplicated with link source, which is not a great example IMO. On the other hand, using articles from others is a quick and easy way to have free work and could dammage your reputation because you don't provide your own and unique contents which keep your visitors on your own site.

Reprinted articles is maybe a quick and free way, but it influence visitors to get out of your site when they click on the source link which could increase your bounce rate and destroy your natural traffic.

In fact you are rewarding the article author by bringing him free traffic
