I am posting an article on my website and so with other social networks I am using like my blog, posting the same article on G+, fB, social bookmarking sites..

Wanna clear my concept on duplicate content. I have 2 questions:

1.       The author is sharing its own article in its various social site. Won’t it be considered as duplicate content?

2.       What if other liked your article and shares the same. So how is it considered? A duplicate article….

1. Only if they copy and paste the entire article verbatim.



2. See 1.



But what YOU are doing IS creating duplicate content so why would you even CARE what anyone else does???

Why are you not posting a link to the article on social media rather than the entire article?

That would be considered duplicate content. 


A good way to share your content as Jill mentioned,

is to post the link to your social networks along with a short brief on what the article is about and a snappy title and image, as oppose to copying and pasting the entire thing. 


You can also integrate social media comments with your blog,

so when users leave a comment on your facebook or twitter for instance, the comment shows up on your blog,

same applies for when a comment is left on your blog it shows up on your facebook and twitter. 


That way your sharing your content in a non-duplicate way an also engaging in social media, how you should be.

You want to drive traffic from social media to your site, that's the whole point. Social media platforms are not a place to just dump your articles.

When used correctly with time, effort and engagement they can be great traffic sources of relevant traffic and potential customers.
