    I have a news based site. The content is not really my area of interest and also don't have so much time so I need to pay writers sometimes to keep it fresh.

    The thing is I get a newsletter with fresh content, but it's duplicate from elsewhere. I would love to use this to keep the website fresh and costs down.

    Does anyone no legit and safe ways to post duplicate content without negatively effecting seo? I assume that just adding a nofollow to the page will not do the job but I never tried. I could post it as a big image.... but don't really want several posts just containing an image and no text.

    You can use tools to spin your content so it will pass copyscape but you should keep in mind that content like this will not be really good for your websites visitors.

    Sure... i'v seen spun content before.... would never use it on this website! It's generally quality content that needs to stay quality.

    Why you don't try to write a better content than the one you have now.

    I believe there's no workaround when it comes to duplicate content... well... except maybe for spun content. If you don't want spun content on your website then go for original content instead. Be safe than sorry.

    I recommend you to use quality content that must be fresh and unique. original content are always best then duplicate content. It will be safe for your site and also best for your website visitors.

    Make sure content is unique and you will be fine. You can rewrite it or hire someone do to this for you.

    Just do a rel=canonical to the original post.

    Sorry duplicate content will not help you as far as SEO is concerned, but if you have other traffic sources like social media then you may be fine with it.

    many thanks.... for the people who answered ... although i think some people misunderstand my question.

    I know duplicate content is a huge problem for google, hence the reason I don't publish it.
    My question was if there is a method to make it Invisible to google ( without 0 neg effect )
    but published so that people can still read it.

    But it's funny, I noticed that countless websites published the same article that I received in a newsletter. I will take a look at this rel = canonical option and consider it
