    Hi guys please let me know the answer to what might be an obvious question. I have a website with a blog page. Can I write a blog post on the blog page and then add the same exact blog post to my google plus page especially, and my facebook page, etc. Is this a good seo practice or will this be caught as duplicate content?

    Thanks for the responses

    Hello! It will be caught as duplicated content most probably. On FB and G+ try to post instead some teasers to the full article and in this way you will catch the attention. Or just share the articles, to have a preview of them. Good luck!

    ya right
    better is write short descriptions on google, fb or any other social media. After that put your article link
    Thus you can get some traffic to your blog. Also try to put some images related to your content.

    You can choose short or full posts for each site. You can spin content also. I use:

    Code:
    http://www.nextscripts.com/social-networks-auto-poster-for-wordpress/
    It is free but I have the unlimited account version I bought. I love it, however with lots of accounts I have to use Imacros because it sucks setting up a thousand or so accounts. The developer is against spam so he will not create a mass account upload feature.

    Spins content, posts to multiple authority sites and its FREEEEE!!!!!

    If your blog is not Wordpress but still has an RSS feed then you can do RSS syndication.

    Not a good idea, put a summary on your various accounts on social media. One summary can go on all sites, but your money site should be unique.

    True that Brother. Yeah just use a any blog as a portal. also dripfeed posts very slow if your backlink building. I posted to 2000 Wordpress accounts, 600 Blog.coms and 1000 Hatena Blogs when I first got it. Boy that was Dumb.

    Money sites are fine but all blog accounts were deindexed!!!


    I use another Plugin to send posts VIA Emails

    I too recommend just sharing them. I feel that if you add them to both, it will be seen as duplicate content.

    Put the summary of your post. Maybe copy an enticing paragraph from your post. Keep the title of the post in social media attractive, so that people click on it. Make sure the featured image is professional. Or else, use the image along with the link back to your blog post.

    My answer might be a little bit annoying.

    I don't mean to be glib or a smartass, but the answer really is it depends.

    If you are just going to copy your existing blog posts wholesale and put it in social media, you run the risk of creating tons of duplicate content because you have to remember that a lot of people harvest social media content and republish them on blog posts.

    However, if you are just going to put snippets usually based on questions, this can produce the tremendous advantages on many levels.

    First, you're not duplicating your content because you're only replicating a snippet of it.

    Second, it's highly engaging because it's tied around the question that people would normally search for or would normally be interested in.

    Third, since you're focused on content-based approach, this increases the likelihood of the engagement.

    So, put all these factors together and you probably will get a lot more mileage using snippets to republish your content.

    Another big advantage of using small blocks of your blog posts and republishing them on your social media accounts on a periodic basis is that you get a huge reservoir of content.

    You don't run out of content very quickly because you can take a standard one thousand-word blog post and break it up into 12 parts.

    This gives you 12 bites at the social media apple, so to speak.

    This increases the likelihood that you would get more social media traffic for every piece of original content you post on your blog.
