Guest Blogging

OK.  SEO novice is back again. 

I`ve published Career blogs on LinkedIn`s Pulse site with content that is totally different to the blogs on my website.  I`d now like to try guest blogging on key Career websites.  Am I correct in believing that there will be no negative effect on my website`s ranking if I use this LinkedIn content and repeat it elsewhere?

  • PromozSEO: What do you mean by repeating? You should not post the same or spun content which is already posted on linkedin, anywhere on the web. That is spamming. You have to re-write and restructure the same each time you want to post it on www. I believe, you understand what I mean by re-writing and restructuring, it's a complete new and fresh content.

    Now coming to the question whether it will negatively affect your own site or not. If there is a link (or may be a brand mention or citation) on the linkedin page pointing back to your blog post page and if you just post the same linkedin content anywhere on web that may cause troubles sooner or later.
    That's what I think and believe, but will surely love to hear others.
