Should articles be Unique for Ezine Articles

When you submit your articles to Ezine should it be the original(unique) articles on your blog or a summary of the articles on your blog. Please Help as I am a newbie

You can use the content from your website or blog but make sure you rewrite it.
You really want original content to submit to Ezine Articles.
This provides a better readers experience.

Hi,
You could rewrite the articles yourself or get someone else to do it. ( EG: Elance.com )
Or you can write the Article for Ezine first, then when it is accepted you can then use that for your site but I would rewrite that as well.
There are no good free article spinner programs on the net in my opinion.
Is that what you asked?

Regards
Troy

Mark says unique articles work out the best for your SEO.
I have used e-lance, and have gotten rewrites for $5.00 per article, all original content.
Hope this helps

Ezine always wants unique content for their directory. Also look at it from the readers perspective. Would you want to read an article, click the link and find the same article? I don't. To me, it makes the person look less of an expert if they cannot provide me with something new when I click to see what else they have to offer.

You can submit articles from your own sites to EZA if you can prove that it's your article.

It's not recommended for seo because obviously, the page on EZA will have more weight than your own page.

What's the problem then?

the problem is that Google may rank the EZA article higher than your page.

Solution: submit a different article.

Hey guys,
I just submitted my first article to ezinearticles, it was accepted straight up, as i put a google alert on the article to follow if it is re published, I discovered that it was, but the website owners that took the article had inserted there own aff. links into the body of the article and had not kept my resource box intact, therefore I am not getting the full benefit from being re-published. What can i do about this? and how does this relate to duplicate content issues, copyright infringement. It's disappointing, because i assumed being re-published elsewhere would be a benefit.

[Please add your link in the signature file. all the best. Franck]

Sorry WhiteHawk, I can't help with your question but could you please let me know how do you put a Google alert to follow your article. I submitted a few articles to EzineArticles.com too and I would like to know what's happening to them.

WhiteHawk,

I would check further into that, because if they truly did, then they have violated the rights according to EzineArticles because no article can be republished without the resource box (complete with links) being intact.

At least, that was my understanding. You might check with Ezinearticles and see what recourse you might have if you can prove that it is your article and the resource box was not intact.

don't waste your time on sploggers like those. If you want to get really sneaky then check out if they are displaying adsense. In that case you can report the site to google and get their adsense account banned (revenge taken).

For the rest Google normally gives more weightage to authority sites like Ezine etc and those splogs normally don't get any real benefit, so don't worry and focus on crunching more articles and more backlinks.

As said above, don't waste your time on this. Many people will take your article and change the resource box to their own. Saying that, there are more honest people, and most of the time, they will keep your original article and bio box.

Keep submitting more and more articles.

Quick question related to Ezine. When you submit an article and it goes live then there appears adsense ads to the right of your article. If someone clicks those ads and goes on to make a purchase who gets the revenue from it. I'm assuming this is how Ezine makes part of its money by posting adsense on a related topic to the article?

you are right JohnRambo. Ezine is nothing but an adsense farm really. they just happen to be popular. One thing I have done to use those spun articles from my site is to point the links to other pages, that way they do not find the same article when they click through.
