    please don't .. you are creating duplicate content!! it is like, is it ok for me to hit my head to a wall, specially in wall that has nail in it!!!

    duplicate content = reduced serp

    if you want to get backlinks from medium, just spin your article, or spin another article and make it readable.... i have not had any issues with spun articles being posted on medium and they have not been deleted.

    Don't listen people who tell you that you're creating duplicate content. They don't know what they're talking about.
    Here is how to do it... First, publish the article on your own blog and wait 6 months (at least). Then publish on Medium using rel=canonical to the original article which is on your blog.

    That depends on what you mean by republishing. If by republishing you mean editing existing blog content with updated, relevant information and sources, and maybe adding even more information to the existing content, then this will likely have a positive effect on your SEO strength for that particular content piece. There is absolutely nothing wrong with improving existing content.

    Spin the whole content from your blog post and paraphrase manually so that it makes sense. Don't duplicate the content as it is or you'll end up in serious trouble.

    Simply create a new article or buy cheap but unique article for it. Depending on how long you want your blog to last anyways.

    I provide an excerpt of my articles and never got any issues with duplicated content, penalties, etc and only got positive movements.

    I'm actually doing a little experiment regarding duplicate content right now, would be interesting to see what happens if you do it.

    Here is the information straight from the source: https://help.medium.com/hc/en-us/articles/217991468-About-SEO-and-duplicate-content

    Using rel=canonical tells everyone involved that the version on your blog is the original, and an article using the rel tag is duplicating that content. I believe in Google's eyes if searched, links to both the Medium and the original blog post both count as links to the original blog post as far as SEO is concerned. They kind of look like 301 redirects from the search engine point of view. I'm not sure why @Magelan suggested waiting six months, though. What is the purpose of waiting, Magelan?

    As long as you can edit the HTML code, you can add the canonical url. You will probably have to search each service separately, (I.e. How do I set the rel=canonical on a Blogger post?) to find out how, but most should work. You should certainly do a bit more research to make sure you understand how to set links and the general in's and out's of canonicalization. If they are slightly off, they can do a bit of damage. I do not know what happens if you post too many too quick, however.

    You want to get all the benefits from publishing the content on your site first. 6 months is enough to get all tweets, facebook shares, backlinks, comments and etc. on that content on your own blog.
    Then, you give that content one more life by publishing it on new platform.
