Are all of the links Do Follow?
Many of the links will be do-follow, however, we do not have control over these sites and some links will be no-follow.
Do all publishers use the rel=canonical tag?
We encourage all of our publishers to use the original link as the rel=canonical tag, however, we cannot guarantee that all publishers will.
What About Duplicate Content?
Great question! Content republishing is actually very common in the publishing industry but is often a misunderstood concept within SEO.
There are many great reasons to republish or syndicate content, as long as you handle the SEO part of it correctly as recommended by Google.
The Good News is Snap Syndication takes care of all this for you!
One great resource is this video from Moz’s Whiteboard Friday about content syndication:
A few things you may want to consider before republishing existing content:
- Wait until your original content is indexed before using Snap Syndication to ensure Google sees your version as the original
- Use the canonical tag to show search engines your version is the original.
- Consider linking to the original content within the article.
- Consider changing a percentage of the content and/or the headline.
With that said, Snap Syndication by default takes all the necessary precautions laid out by Google so you don’t need to do anything!
