Default Should I Publish My Own Ezinearticles Type Content On My Own Site?

Here's a question--

I've started doing some article writing for my site - I've really only written a couple so far and I've submitted it to ezinearticles.com and a few other article sites I've found like articlecity...

My question is - is it safe to post those same articles on my own site, or will it actually be detrimental to my SEO efforts and the link building itself?

I'd like to be able to include that information that I've wrote on my own site...

Any thoughts?

I'm doing something similar, but in the end I decided to put my blog articles on my site. Here's why:

Let's say Article A is external and links back to your site, and Article B is on your site. Both get 100 views, and 20 people create new links to the article. The links to Article A will go the external site, even though it is your article. The links to article B go to your site. So given equal popularity, Article A still gets your site only 1 link, but Article B gets 20 links to your site.

That being said, posting to those sites you mention still have value, but I would put most of the effort into populating your own site.

Well the thing is even if they link to Ezine, you still get the extra link juice. A backlink is a backlink, and if 20 backlinks are pointing to one of your backlinks it makes it higher authority.

Even though I'm not one to believe the whole duplicate content myth... I think if you post to these article directories, don't put the content for your own site.

For blogging, keep it on your website. For article marketing, touch on different topics, or spin other related articles with the backlink to your site.

I don't think that it is worth to publish the same articles in the site as you duplicate from yourself and what is the effect of all it in factto the same then?

In my opinion, I think it's not healthy to have your article in Ezine Article posted to your blog or own site also. I think it is the so called duplicate content.

You can and should post any quality articles that you write onto your site, but you have to do it before you post it to ezinearticles.

You need to post the article to your site and let Google index it before you post it to ezinearticles (or any other article site). Google sees the first instance of a certain piece of content as being the original and adds authority to that. You want other sites publishing your content, not the other way around. If you publish an article (even if it is your own) that was first published somewhere else, your site is not seen as the original, authority site. And, since your whole goal in article marketing (and SEO in general) is to build your site's authority you want to make sure that you do this right.

So, any articles that you have already posted to ezinearticles, leave them off of your site. And any new articles that you write, first post them in your site, wait for them to be indexed by Google, and then post them to ezinearticles.

That seems to make sense - I'll follow this rule -

I'm guessing Google's logic is that the original author would have no control over other sites duping your content -- so you should still get the credit for the original writing and then of course the subsequent links would be beneficial from other sites...

Seems to be something like that, though I'm not sure anyone will ever fully understand Google's logic But yes, you get credit for the content if Google finds it on your site first.

so, it's a single content published on multiple sites and this is where you are duplicating the content. Though Google recognizes the original content but still is it not recommend to have a copy of same content in other site.

If there are duplicated content, how does Google knows which one is the original content? The one that google spider parsed first may not be the one that is published first.
