    would that actually be good for my website www.webmasterspalace.com or not? Because we are really busy working on getting content on that website, and I am wondering would stuff like that be good for my site or not? And it's $100, is there any way to get something like that cheaper?

    It is ok with some syndicated content on the web site, the SEOChat forums have some syndicated news posted in their forums once every hour. But if you base your site primarly on syndicated content, then it is "black hat"/not good/risky.

    Pay for it. Lock yourself out and write. GEt some articles at article submission sites.

    Take it easy and slow, Thats the best advice I can give you.

    BTP Klaas a lot of links on your site are broken, It looks like they get broken depending on the page you are at (specially if you are in the directory).

    It wasn't a submitting script, it was one to pull articles in an approved way. It is still in development.

    You can use the old cut and paste way in the meantime.

    Say you want to use this article:
    http://www.articledepot.co.uk/article-21903.htm

    You can get the cut and paste HTML here:
    http://www.articledepot.co.uk/gethtml.php?id=21903

    Cheers

    Klaas - Lol, I know exactly what you are looking for. The problem is there are no such authorized scripts out there. All the major article sites actually specify in their TOS that they can't be used.

    In your case, you are in a big hurry which I can't help you with. We are taking our time developing our software because we want to do it right. It may be another 2 weeks until its completely ready.

    Sorry we couldn't be more help

    The problem with this site is the articles are the same article being used all over the net. You really need original articles, people writing those are just looking to spread links. A lot of them don't even contain and good information and were only written to get back links.

    Then don't use them :confused: If you don't like an article why would you put it on your site?

    As far as the articles being used on many sites, does that make them less informative if they are well written? What are you proposing is the downside of using good content to supplement original content for your visitors?

    Articles used on many websites will get you punished by google (under the duplicate content rule). This is not proven but almost every SEO guy believes in it. Free content also means you have to include backlinks to the writers site, this is also a bad thing in the SEO world. Those are the big downsides... Then you got the little things, like your pretty much promoting another site in exchange for the article (you could lose that visitor). Duplicate content cheapens your site, I’m not going to stick around if I see the same articles that are published all over the net.

    Your not going to get traffic from this duplicated content, its as simple as that... So why even bother putting it on your site. The way I see it is it will hurt more then it will help.

    I just realized you own the site in question... no offense here, I'm just not a big fan of duplicate content. Its not a knock on your site by any means.

    If a professional SEO told you you would be penalized for using syndicated content, I wouldn't use them as they don't actually know SEO. I don't think you understand how duplicate content (which syndicated articles don't need to be) affects sites
    If you are that paranoid to linking out, you are int he wrong business. Linking out can actually help your SERPs in some cases and in most won't hurt you what so ever. If your main concern is you may lose the visitor, your site must be pretty bad itself
    This is totally out of left field. I don't even understand this

    Don't worry...Its a common newbie mistake that using syndicated content will automatically qualify as duplicate content.

    There is a lot of info on this forum so welcome and enjoy

    You better go back to SEO 101. If you want an article with no link out pay for it.

    If you want original content pay for it or write it yourself.

    Syndicated articles are just another tool in the SEO toolbox.

    BTW I would stop listening to the site/person that told you all that stuff.

    Kalius has brought up a good point which I forgot to mention and that is from an SEO perspective unique content is always best. But due to the expense and time it takes to generate, the perfect accompaniment is syndicated content.

    I write a LOT of unique content and know its power but to say there is a penalty for using articles is unfounded and borders on the ridiculous (if it wasn't posted so many times by newbies, it wouldn't even be up for debate).
