The great duplicate content debate?
I have found it a myth and not worth worrying about except below
I have articles distributed to hundreds of directories and have backlinks from all.
I checked Ezine, Go articles and article base and they were not distributed there so I submitted the same articles to them had them accepted immediately and when checking the next day they were all indexed
“Duplicate content generally refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar...In some cases, content is duplicated across domains in an attempt to manipulate search engine rankings or garner more traffic via popular or long-tail queries.”
There are a couple of easy ways to avoid this. Never put the same content on two different domain names you own, or use the same blocks of text across different pages within your domain(s).
