    do I post the same article on every site?


    So I am having confusion with SEO, if I post a blog on my site, and I want to guest post on other sites to increase domain authority, should that content be completely different to the content on my site to avoid duplicate content?

    To learn about the principles of duplicate content, this is a good start: https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/66359?hl=en

    You may have a valid reason for posting duplicates (although I think you don't based on how you framed the question). But if your site offers content A and other blogs offer the same content A, then I would see no need for your website since I can get the same offer from one of the blogs where you guest posted.

    You realize DA has nothing to do with Google, right?

    You can post the blog content same as it is on other site but do not forget to give source link in it ......

    As Hikin Mike rightly pointed out

    In fact increasing your DA can actually backfire on you if you don't know when to stop building links.

    When you guest blog, talk about your topic, write with authority, present yourself as a "Trusted Authority". Then mention your money page, and use a small blurb from the money page to grab your reader's attention and provide a link to that page.

    Don't use the same blurb twice, no matter how tempting.

    No, because now a days Google is very strict against duplicate content, so there are no need to post a single content on number of sites.

    I mean to say that if you use duplicate content then Google definitely penalize your website during Google algorithm update.

    Yeah, I thought that's what you meant.

    And no, that doesn't happen, there is no duplicate content penalty.


    See:

    What are Google’s thoughts on duplicate content?

    Many great posts have been published by Googlers. I’m going to give you a summary of the best parts, but I recommend reading over the posts as well.

    • Duplicate content doesn’t cause your site to be penalized.
    • Googlers know that users want diversity in the search results and not the same article over and over, so they choose to consolidate and show only one version.
    • Google actually designed algorithms to prevent duplicate content from affecting webmasters. These algorithms group the various versions into a cluster, the “best” URL in the cluster is displayed, and they actually consolidate various signals (such as links) from pages within that cluster to the one being shown. They even went as far as saying, “If you don’t want to worry about sorting through duplication on your site, you can let us worry about it instead.”
    • Duplicate content is not grounds for action unless its intent is to manipulate search results.
    • About the worst thing that can happen from this filtering is that a less desirable version of the page will be shown in search results.
    • Google tries to determine the original source of the content and display that one.
    • If someone is duplicating your content without permission, you can request to have it removed by filing a request under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
    • Do not block access to duplicate content. If they can’t crawl all the versions, they can’t consolidate the signals.

    It is not good for SEO to posting a same content in different websites, as it will be count in plagiarism and it is not defiantly good at all.

    Don't post your own article on your own website?
