Posting Blog Posts in Multiple Places – Good or Bad?

Repost This

A question many people have had is “can they post the same content on more than one blog?” Well, Darren Rowse finally takes a stab at answering that question and it comes down to the neither black or white answer of “maybe, sometimes”. He lists some reasons why cross posting can be helpful for a piece of news or content and why you shouldn’t post the same news on multiple blogs.

Here is what he put for why cross posting can be a good thing:

I think you’ve already discovered the main positive of cross posting (or posting the same thing on two sites) – that it exposes your post/article to more potential readers which can have the flow on effects of others then linking up to it. If getting your message out and building your own reputation as a writer is your main priority then allowing your posts to be republished in this way is something you will want to consider.

This is why some authors publish books online for free and some artists allow their music or art to be freely downloaded by web users – because it’s great for their profile and puts their message in the hands of as many as possible. This has numerous flow on effects for their future work.

Check out his story on when he allowed Problogger posts to be republished on WebProNews and you’ll understand one of the main drawbacks of having multiple blogs with the same news.

    Earlier this year i came across a book called ‘The Truth About Six Pack Abs”. Being a personal trainer i thought there couldn’t be much harm in seeing what this book had to say, to see if it was all about fad workouts or proper, healthy exercise. After reading it I’ve come to the conclusion that the book is fantastic, it focuses on full body compound exercises and a healthy diet. I definitely recommend giving it a read and give me some feedback on what you think. The book is also good for people who don’t know too much about health and fitness and want to get into shape. Anyways, let me know what you think!

    I also found this review: http://thetruthaboutsixpackabs2.com but I am not sure if this is true!
