    Hello guys,

    I'm creating an e-commerce website. I take products from Amazon and relist them using their definitions. To avoid my pages not being unique, I write a 500-1000 word article on each of the products. So far so good I think! My question is: can I simply put the same article for similar products on my pages? Will my SEO will be affected? I'd basically copy my articles and changes some words for other keywords to rank individually.

    I'm not sure if that's clear, so basically my question is: If I reuse my own 100% unique articles on several pages, will all the pages rank for different keywords changed?

    If it doesn't rank I'll spin it but it's just way faster if it works that way.

    Cheers and happy New Year! :D

    Your Secret Weapon

    While duplicate content issues are definitely at play regarding your question, I think that you have to ask a bigger question.

    The bigger question is whether your pages will convert.

    You have to remember that if you put enough pages on any kind of website and you do a decent job of building backlinks, these pages will draw traffic.

    The bigger issue is whether these pages are good enough, standing on their own, to convert that hard earned traffic into cold hard cash in your bank account.

    I hope you see where I'm coming from.

    The focus here shouldn't just be on whether you have unique content or not.

    I think that is a dead issue.

    The answer is simple.

    You need unique content, but the bigger issue that people shouldn't run away from is whether unique content is enough in of itself.

    I would argue, based on my experience helping website owners take their revenue generation game to the next level is no.

    You need to take the extra step.

    You need to create original content that really plays up the products that you are pushing, so readers would actually want to buy.
