My Blog Or Articles Directory
Posted 18 August 2010 - 02:34 PM
I have a new e-commerce store. All my products/category pages are original. But now I have some original articles that I had someone write for me. From what I've learned it's best to put new information on my blog rather than my store and point it back to my products and categories. Correct? To be useful info for my readers.
But I'm also thinking I should submit them to some article directories to get good back links, maybe even get them published on other peoples blogs. Articles aren't cheap.
My question is should I just keep them on my blog only to help build up my original content for my main site? And then use the article marketing aspect with totally different articles?
I was once told to submit to a top directory first (because if I don't, that I may be rejected) and than post to my blog, and after that, then to other directories.
I have read here that it's not a bad thing to have duplicate content, but it may be filtered out.
But I also read if I put the same article on my blog after submitting to the directory, that my article should be changed around a bit - not the exact same article for SEO purpose.
I surely don't want to have to rewrite my article.
Also, What about taking this same article and submitting it to lets say 5 of the top article directories. Can they all be the same content?

After the content has been indexed on your site, I'd say it's OK to submit it to a few article directory sites. If they have policies against publishing articles that have already been published elsewhere, then try someplace else, but under no circumstances should you let them republish your content without crediting you and linking back to you (even if only with a nofollow link).

What about articles I already have out there on the directory. I did have them on my blog but a SEO person I was working with said take them off and change them around a bit. Was he concerned about it being filtered. They said it was not good, so I deleted them. So what's wrong with Google filtering them out again? My pages won't be found? Do I need to change this around or let them go.
