There are many myths that are spread throughout Internet marketing about marketing with articles. These myths are normally started by one of the marketers that tried to sell this product or that product. The problem is once these myths are spread around many newbies get confused and do not know how to do article marketing properly.
Duplicate Content And The Penalty Of Google
Duplicate content penalty is one of the biggest myths that have been spread around. Many are misinformed that if you take an article and post the article on several websites that Google will penalize you for posting those articles on other sites.
This is a complete and total incorrect statement, Google does not and will not penalize any website for doing syndication. Syndication is taking an article (or other content) and republishing that article on many different sites. When you syndicate your articles and have them republished on many different websites they are still indexed by Google and you can very well dominate the entire front page of Google.
Some would have you believe that Google would only index one of your articles, this is a completely false statement. As I have stated you can dominate the entire front page of Google with just one article. There is no duplicate content penalty, this is 100% a myth!
The Posting Of Your Article On Other Sites First
There are many, including article directory owners that will tell you that you must post your article on their directory first. This also is a 100% false statements, remember this is your unique content and there is no one that can tell you what you must do with your content. The fact is you should be posting your unique article on your own website or blog first.
Once you have your article posted on your website or blog then you should be building back links to your website or blog by other means besides article directories. You can build back links to your website or blog through bookmarking, document sharing websites, video upload websites, and web 2.0 properties.
Once you build these back links to your website or blog then you can submit your article to other places. The reason why you were doing this is because you want to keep the authority to your website or blog instead of giving your authority away by posting your unique content on other sites first.
Content Spinners Are Useless Tools In Marketing
This is not only a myth but a downright lie! Although there are some self-proclaimed marketers that has tried to use the false duplicate content penalty to sell useless junkie spinners, this does not mean all content spinners are useless. When using a properly built article spinning tool you can produce very well written and beautifully crafted articles. By using a human controlled spinner you can produce 20+ articles from just one article.
A human controlled spinner is a tool that is fully controlled by the writer. When the writer controls all of the text that goes into the article then you will always have a fully readable article. Some will try to convince you that it takes a long time for you to set up an article to be spun. These people even try to convince you that they can write articles faster without a spinner. This also is not only a myth but another downright lie, you can produce 20+ articles from one article in approximately 2 hours by using the proper spinning tool.
