    Should I separate guest blog content from content on my site?


    If I specify a canonical link on content which I approach other blogs with, does it matter if that same article also appears on my site?

    Not sure I quite understand this part. Please explain it a bit further

    does it matter if that same article also appears on my site?
    If you're spreading around content that is already on your website, you're deliberately creating an issue of content duplication and potential penalization with Google Panda update

    Yes, it was my understanding that a canonical link fixed this issue, i.e it signalled to Google which was the "original" page?

    I just read this https://blog.kissmetrics.com/myths-a...icate-content/

    Okay I dug a bit deeper with this and I suppose you can use the Cross Domain Canonical Link to address such situations

    Do make sure that the site/ blog publishing your content has this Canonical Link element in the <head> section of their pages

    You can read the Google documentation on the proper implementation of the canonical link element - https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/139066?rd=1
