How does writing articles not run into the problem with duplicate content?

Articles are the same as news. They come under the rules that apply to “syndicated content.”

They are both 100% white hat and search engines understand that both articles and news are created for the purpose of “syndication.”

Genuine articles are “written” to be published across many Web sites and they will never be penalized for duplicate content.

Duplicate content penalties primarily are triggered by people who may, for example only use the same content over and over just switching out a few keywords but not really writing anything that is original.

In short, some people are attempting to use the same old content over and over without ever really creating anything new or original.

If you are looking for short cuts, or grey area stuff, then your articles will definitely be penalized by the search engines.

But if you want more proof that search engines believe in and support ”article distribution” and understand the value of “syndication,” then check out the Search Engines “Creative Commons Areas.”

Both Yahoo and Google have Creative Commons areas where they not only will accept your articles but they encourage others to ”search for” and “use your original articles” so long as they follow the terms and conditions under the creative common license.

“If” article marketing was “duplicate content” or truly deemed as Spam, then why would the search engines themselves be offering up and also encouraging you to publish other people work?

Writing genuine, high quality articles will never get you penalized for “duplicate content” as long as you are doing it correctly. The search engines understand that both “articles” and “news” are fresh content that is meant for syndication.

SEO Tips #32 – Duplicate Content Checker

Check out the Duplicate Content Tool.

Duplicate content is the term for a filter applied to search engines
queries for which there are two or more relevant pages that are too
similar to each other.

As an effect, pages seen as duplicates of the first relevant results
are filtered out. The aim of that functionality is to provide a
better “results variety.”

This tool visits the two page you ask it analyze: it compares the
two pages in order to look for differences: then it calculates a
percentual estimate of how much difference there is between them.
