    Hello everyone, I have just written an articles from my uni slides. It is a 900 word articles and I am pretty happy with it. I checked it with copyscape and the first result showed 9% matching. Has anyone else done this? If so, did you have some success? I think its a good way to study and get some content along the way.

    Something tells me English is not your first language...

    Am I right?

    Not sure where that question came from really... there were a couple of minor grammatical errors, but your post has better English than half the posts on this forum.

    Anyway, that seems like an excellent source of content if it is related to your niche - and if it's not it could be worth starting a new site. Just make sure you're putting it in your own words and not copying it verbatim so there's no copyright issues. I would think most things taught in a university level class would have people looking for it online. Depending on the competition in that niche, it could snag some easy traffic and help your studies at the same time.

    Yeah cheers mate. I didn't think about the student traffic, but that could be a good source too I'm hoping. I did start a new website for it. I am doing a whole degree in ICT so i decided I could use the website to study for the rest of the degree. I am getting about 700 - 900 words per lecture, so three of them a week and I should have allot of content in no time.

    I don't know where the English question came from either, who cares if its not perfect, its a forum. If you understand what I mean then my goal has been achieved and better grammar couldn't make that goal more achieved.

    I wouldn't d oit , because these slides might one day or another be uploaded to your university/teacher personal home page as a pdf or digital handout.
    And you might get a duplicate content penalty.

    What if I have the content on my website first and it gets indexed? Wouldn't they then get the penalty?
