The best thing to do is "spin" the article. A really good tool for this is www.contentboss.com. There is a 30.00 per month charge, but you can spin your article and submit a "different" article at the push of a button. It is a great tool for press releases...

By the way-
Do not spin your article no matter what because it does not make any sense and your brand name will take serious beating if your content fails to make any sense.

Here's what I do. I haven't had a duplicate content problem.

1. I have my author write three versions of the same article.
2. Each article has a different headline.
3. I put an article up on my site/blog first.
4. Then I submit one version to EzineArticles.
5. Then I submit it to hundreds (depends on the keyword the article is optimized for) of article directories using Unique Article Wizard. This is a paid service that spins your titles and versions into many variations. It also has a provision by which you can create a resource box that can be spun into up to 2,048 variations. The resource box is one element of an article that can point to duplicate content, so this is important.

ANY advice is greatly appreciated.
Bottom line is this...

All content on your OWN site should be original. If you're going to place articles on other sites like forums or article submission sites that link back to your main site(s), DO NOT USE THE CONTENT FROM YOUR SITE. Write new versions of the articles for submission purposes. That way your pages all contain original content... and only the pages that link to you are duplicates of one another.

I just posted this on another thread but it's applicable here:

Here's how I do use article writing to promote my site.

1) I write a blog post about some topic. Typically my posts are very detailed, like 1500-2500 words. I post this on my blog.

2) I write a totally separate article about the exact same topic. I never look at the original blog post. I write this one from scratch. I may use the same basic outline, but I talk about things at a much higher level, with less detail. This article will typically be 700-1000 words. In the resources box I link to my post in #1 with its targeted kewyord phrase... and I link to my home page with its targeted keyword phrase. You can have 2 links to your site in the resources box and both are FOLLOWed links. I submit this to EzineArticles.

3) EZA publishes it and I get 2 backlinks to my site from the resources box - one to the post, the other to the home page.

4) If you write excellent articles from EZA, LOTS of other web sites will republish your articles. Each time it is re-published, you get 2 more back links.

5) I get traffic not only from EZA but also from the sites where my articles are re-published.

It's true that a lot of article spinners out there are junk. But content boss is not one of them. This is an awesome tool for spinning articles.

BTW the biggest no-no is submitting the same article to a bunch of directories. Send an article to one directory, spin it and do it again to a different directory. Do this a few times a day and in a month you will have 100 different articles talking about your business. All articles will be "original content". They will all be indexed, and you will get back links from all of them.

In my view, the same contents or articles for all sites sources do not create some positive impression and obviously we know this that people are involved in almost all possible platforms which are in our access. However keeping the format same, the dimensions can be varied to attract the visitors positively and this is what I would like to suggest here.

I too agree, i found some where duplicate content will be hidden by Google results which shows original content first and rest of duplicated results will be hidden by Google which is of no use for you.

I strongly suggest to go for unique content. You can even re modify the duplicate content upto some extent and use it which should not be replica of original content.

I believe you can post the same article to multiple websites. However, it is important that the Author Name/Account Name remains the same everywhere. This indicates your identity as genuine to the search engines & in some cases to the readers.

In my point of view, it does not look nice to use the same article for multiple sites as the uniqueness and originality of data is lost here. The niche can be the same but we have to find some new data of information words.
