    Hi all,

    I would like to know the impact of the use of some one else articles on my website the time to write my own articles.

    I know some people do this by using generally rss feed,etc...however my goal is (to try) to be ranked in a month or at least reach the traffic of 500 users per day.

    Thanks and Regards,

    TheStrategist

    I am thinking this could be a copyright issue unless you use a article spinner.

    Do not do this.

    Google will penalize your site for using Duplicate content.
    Horrible way to start off your site with bad trust issues with Google.
    Owner can claim copyright infringement.
    Unethical, you're stealing someones hard work.

    Basically no value other than filling spots in your site, but negatives outweigh the positives.

    Hi,

    Obviously I mean by displaying the original source of the article. I have some categories that are presently half empties so i was thinking about this method for few weeks.

    Anyway, i will try to write these missing contents during the next two weeks (spinning inclusive).

    There's tons of "legitimate" sites who do nothing more than scrape other peoples content and slap a link at the end - hell that's the basis of the Google empire!

    If you want a way of doing this without fear of reprisals don't just take one article -
    find a topic,
    research the topic,
    collect sources,
    write up what you've learned supported by extracts from said source with links thereto
    BAM - instant original content!

    (That's what we call content curation and it's easy as you like!)

    Alternatively if you're feeling well lame, do what all the lazy people were doing 3 years ago and translate the article into mandarin, then welsh, then spanish, then back to english :p

    Content curation is good if you are running a magazine style website..in practice though to do it right it takes as much time to find , read , edit and collate articles

    Why can't you just right your own articles. Get hot on the typewriter and you can knock out 5- six hundred word articles in an hour ...hey ho problem solved by dinnertime

    Presently I don't feel my writing english enough for articles also I re-write 50% of the articles by doing a kind of content curation.
