Att’n Article Marketers: Google Says You Suck
I would think this applies even more to Content Curators.
According to Matt Cutts he (and Google) do not like Article Marketing.
This is what Matt has to say (sounds a lot like what BLOGBloke has been preaching all these years don’t you think):
“Honestly, I’m not a fan of Article Marketing. If you think about it you’re writing an article and including a link at the bottom hoping that a bunch of other people will put up copies, mirrors or duplicates of that article, and then hoping those links might flow through to you.
Typically the sort of sites that just republish these articles are not the highest quality and a lot of times the articles themselves are not the highest quality. You end up with a lot of duplicate content across the web.
So should you pursue Article Marketing? I would lean away from that and lean more towards creating great (original) content that has natural links… “
Hey don’t shoot the messenger cause Google said it, not me.
But I still have one question for Matt .. why do the blog networks remain unscathed? Just asking.
What do you think?
