    What good is it to republish articles form articles directory when the same original article is there in the article directory. does it cause duplicate content issue since both the article in the article directory and the website/blog is some only difference is that the republished articles has the link to the original article in the article directory . I have seen website with the republished article rank higher than the original article in the article directory itself .
    Is duplicate content penalty a myth?
    Thanks
    bob

    There's no penalty but you might just not rank at all.
    In my opinion, if you have more authority and links coming to that article, you should rank higher for it.
