    I'm looking for opinions please. Here is the scenario:

    Client A has a blog on their domain. We create and post content on client A's blog. We have also created guest posting relationships with 3rd party blog sites in the same niche as client A.

    Here is the big question:
    Can we post the SAME content that we have already posted on client A's blog to one of the guest posting sites as long as we include a resource box in the post giving credit to client A's blog as having the original content?

    Some might say we are posting duplicate content and will get dinged in the SERPS for plagiarism.
    Some might say as long as we have the resource box back to client A's site, it's okay to have the content duplicated on one other website.

    We do NOT want to spin the content for re-posting.

    Any white-hatters out there with an opinion on this issue? Thank you VERY much in advance. Just trying to do the right thing here.

    Interesting but hard to answer. I think only testing several times you could answer yourself.

    In my opinion, if post in A blog is indexed before you repeat it, and with a link to blog A in the article, it MAY be not bad for the blog. But I have never tried something like this, so i can't talk from a real experience.

    Interesting question. Maybe it won't have a negative effect but I doubt it will have a positive effect.

    Looking at it from a pragmatic point of view, it's duplicate content so why would google want the same article in it's index twice?

    IMO, This is an acceptable practice and it happens all the time between news sites, seos and major brands. Syndicating content is fine... the important things is, to make sure not all your content is duplicated.

    A good discussion here on bhw forums was occurring yesterday on duplicated content, you can check it out.

    Hope this helps!
