    What should I do with these 500 plumbing articles?


    Greetings!

    I am a web designer who is getting familar with SEO and I have a question to ask...

    I have a client who owns 5 plumbing businesses and I am in the process of designing the sites and SEOing the whole project from scratch.

    The business owner years ago self-published a plumbing manual and has provided me with approx. 500 articles that I can use for SEO purposes. They are all very high quality and unique.

    I was wondering what would be the best way to use this valuable resource.

    I appreciate any input. Thanks in advance.

    The simple answer.
    Create an onsite blog and start publishing them.

    Could I squeeze more out of them by waiting for them to get indexed on my sites ... and then post them on article directories with links going back to other sites I have. I don't want to do anything that might get me penalized.

    No, this was a printed plumbing manual he published 15 years ago. It's all high quality, unique and nowhere online.

    Then it's gold, why pass it out to blogspot, digg or what have you. put it on his site, makes your job a lot easier your content is all there and once you get them all up you'll be an authority site on plumbing. I wish I could find clients like that.

    So you don't see any value of syndicating the articles around after they are initially indexed on my clients?

    Others may think different, I'd make the site an authority and let the juice flow in naturally. But then I'm not a fan of syndicating copy.

    I think when you have unique article you can post it on your own site.Because it help you to attract the people towards your site and also to promote your business site.But if you don't have more space on your site than made free hosting blogs and link that blog with your main site.
