A lot of bloggers are curious to know about auto blogging. Is it good or bad? Should one use it or not? How does it play a role in terms as SEO? Will it affect my blog’s ranking? – Are the various questions running in our minds.
Well, there are pros and cons of using auto generated content. First you must learn a few things about it and how it functions. There are a number of points to keep in mind while using auto blogging.
Here are a few points to keep in mind while auto blogging:-
1. It creates duplicate content
Search engines take a many number of factors into consideration while ranking your blog. Auto blog systems create duplicate content, which can bring higher SEO ranking to it than your original content page. This can have a negative effect on your blog. Moreover, it can lead to legal problems if you are not respecting other people’s copyrights.
2. Avoid misconceptions
Search Engines identify different sites holding the same information but these sites are not penalized just for holding this scrapped information. Many people think so, but I’d like to tell you that it’s a misconception. Read more about this topic and get rid of misconceptions.
3. Avoid penalties
The main reason for receiving penalties from search engines is altogether another reason; and that is spamming. There are many bloggers who want to make fast money on the net and use auto blogging for that reason. It is not possible to build a blog overnight with hundreds of posts. These type of activities are easily considered by search engines as spam. So, keep in mind especially when using this automatic function, to maintain control and consistency.
4. Try creative commons
You can try and use creative commons for your blog. One such common is wikihow. You can use this freely as long as you give them the credit by posting a link and making a mention of the original source.
5. Use other people’s matter with permission
You can also use creative content written by others. It is important, however, to take permission from the other person who owns the content and also give him due credits.
To conclude, auto blogging is good unless you abuse it. You must make sure not to spam by posting numerous posts overnight and also make sure that you are not playing with somebody else’s copyright. Otherwise auto blogging is good, if used in the right way.
