    Someone is writing reviews for me, but they are also posting these reviews to a forum at the same time. I'm not sure if he will stop posting to the forum, is this a problem? Would I see any negative effects from having the same content as a forum? I imagine I might be able to get it on my website the same day as he posts to the forum, but then it's a race too see whose gets the article indexed first. Is this considered duplicate content?

    Well, if someone were to search your reviews and find out that your reviews have been posted verbatim on a public forum, then they would probably realise that you paid someone to write the review or they would assume that you pilfered them off of a public forum. I would imagine that they would not take you seriously afterwards.

    Hello,
    Most content writers take up content writing as a career not because they like writing. Here you can post your writing success story: Did you get a columnist assignment? content writer also write a FAQ. content marketers focus on acquiring, retaining and upwelling customers.

    Thanks

    If I am there, I would probably see you that you've appointed a person to write sponsored reviews.
    Most of the forums are filled with duplicated content. Google doesn't kick forums for having copied content.

    That would be a huge red flag to anyone who sees it I think. Plus, that writer doesn't sound like he cares much about your privacy. Not cool.

    Well, after this phrase I wouldn't think too long. Are you sure you need such a person?

    I agree that the writer needs to be changed. I would not think that this would be doing you any justice.
