Hi all We run a legitimate News website, every day we add at least 1 article of unique content, and a further 3 that are syndicated within our niche (so this syndicated content appears on perhaps another 50-75 similar News sites around the world). We obviously want to rank higher than all of those other sites. I have some questions that I hope someone here can help us with: 1. For the syndicated stories that also appear on competing sites, how much do they need to be changed to make them unique and score higher? We will be editing manually, not spinning (content has to be credible and professional, free of silly spin errors). 2. What on-page SEO should we be focused on? Site is built on Wordpress. Currently we use All-in-One and just fill in the blanks. We also use many of the tips provided in the Basic SEO practices for Newbies thread. Is this enough, or have been there any new developments or new methods we should be using? 3. What is the best way to distribute our stories to other sites, in a legal 'white hat' manner without fear of being blacklisted or penalised, that will help with ranking and PR on our main site? 4. Is there a viable software tool, to automate or at least reduce time spent on manual submitting our content to other sites? Happy to pay for the right software. Again white hat only. With thx in advance for any help provided.
