Hi,

If I host a blog as a sub-page on my website (i.e. by the means of the WordPress Ad-on), and I re-post one of my blog articles on other article websites (because my article links to my site); will this be beneficial or bad in terms of SEO for my website?

The reason I could see it being bad SEO is because wouldn't Google see it as duplicate content on two different websites?

Although, I know a lot of people try this approach because they believe it gets them multiple links to their site.

So plain and simply, is it good or bad SEO practice for my website, to re-post an article from my blog on other article websites?

Thanks,
-Jshine

If it is relevant to your site and the general content of your site, then it will help your ranking. If you are posting your articles on sites that are unrelated, then it will hurt your ranking. If other sites link to your content, then it will help your ranking.

Each search engine has their own (secret) formulas for calculating relevancy. your best bet is to have good content that is updated frequently, and don't spam your site. If you have good content, people will come.
