What's best: 2000 word article on a Web 2.0 or on my own site?

    OK, so I have an authority site and was just wondering what you think is better:

    1) Put a unique non spammy 2000+ word article directly onto my website in the blog/articles section or
    2) Put it onto a Web 2.0 site linking to a page on my website with the thinking it could rank better + also offer weight/PR to my site?

    Or is it a case of they both have their benefits?

    Are Web 2.0 such as Blogspot, Squidoo generally better at ranking for Long Tail Keywords?

    Use it on your Money site 2000 words is a very good amount for a blog post.

    Modify/rewrite the article of almost 500-800 words and use it on Web 2.0.

    I'm not too sure about rewriting an existing article. I have the thinking that if it's just mixed up a bit, it's asking for trouble. Sooner or later, anyway.

    I just wondered if I had a single unique article, what the best place to put it was. It does seem to make sense though to stick it on my own website and then use Twitter/Facebook to hopefully promote it via Social Media and gain social signals.

    If you rewrite a part of the article by hand, maybe mixing paragraphs, you are doing a new article, so there is no way to be penalized.

    There is no such thing ad dup content penalty, just mix it up a bit, ad some extra content (curation) video, images and you will be fine

    If you are having a hard time deciding on where to use the article, order a shorter rewrite of the article and publish it on a web 2.0 site, then publish the 2k words article on your authority site. Since it's an authority site (assuming it's already ranking high in Google), you should have no difficulty ranking any page on your site for long tail keywords.

    Your're almost at 1500 post in 3 months, why would anyone take your word for it, your nothing but a post bot, somebody with that much time on their hands can't have anything going on,. so please stop giving advice as your advice is shit at best.

    As far as i noticed, your advice is always rewritten from some posts that is a few spot above WITHIN that thread.

    1400-1500 words article on your money site and 500-600 on your web 2.0. This will do the trick :). Blogger is more authoritative for long tail keywords

    Such a long article should always go to your own website.

    OK some good advice above. I'll do the larger articles on my site and try putting a shortened version on a web 2.0 and see how it goes.

    Don't some web 2.0s rank well even if they don't pass any weight/PR, so they can still be good for traffic and ranking for long tailed keywords? If I have a 2.0 ranking + my 2000+ article on my webpage then that's a double boost, right, even if the web 2.0 isn't passing any 'juice'?

    So which web 2.0s would you say are good for the following?..

    A: Good for ranking, but don't pass 'juice' so they'll help with traffic but not the ranking of my 2000+ article
    B: Pass some good 'juice' but don't rank well, but they'll help my 2000+ article rank well
    C: Do both of the above

    But these rewritten articles will then link to my 2000+ word article, to help it's ranking - It seems a bit daft for someone to read Article A and then go to Article B which is about the same thing, just a bit longer?

    OP, in this case "longer article" will also mean "more detailed". Besides, the repeated information will be written in a different way, and in essence - be perceived as different. It's also beneficial to the readers - different people understand different styles of writing better.
