While I'm still learning about the affiliate marketing world and working on my own sites I also have a regular stream of income from freelancing content writing/editing.

I would put the client's needs first. Work your sites in lower priority!

If you are a writer and you're getting paid for doing it by someone who requested those articles, then do it. Then, take the money. But don't do it with your own websites here. lol

That's the kind of stuff they were teaching several years ago and I guess that some people are still hanging on to it. It was for the purpose of submitting similar articles to different article directories in the hope to get SEO juice that way.

I personally don't do it anymore.

good info.. I'm happy to keep taking their money for easy side work but I'll stick to the latest methods (that keep up with the changing Google algorithm) for my own site!

You get paid for a service you do I don't see nothing wrong in this... I wish you great success with your site!

They're using the articles to get backlinks to their website in the hope that it will make search engines think their website is more popular than it actually is & therefore rank it higher (or faster).

So basically they'll submit the articles your sending them onto various different websites & the links placed in them will link back to the websites they're trying to rank.

The bottom line is search engines are not silly, they know what's going on - and they can quite easily detect written (or "spun") content. Basically to keep it simple if the backlink ain't natural it ain't good :)

The best thing to do is focus on your on-site content, share it to get it out there, and let the links come to you as & when people want to link to you. Don't get too drawn into participating in things like this as overall you could end up doing more harm than good :)

Ah that makes sense. Through my training at wealthy affiliate, I'm aware that duplicate or spammy content gets penalised so I have been making sure to write the articles as naturally as possible and with the bare minimum of repetition... whether this will get through the search engine intelligence I don't know...but it's definitely helping me get great feedback and repeat commissions for this gig!

I agree though that I'm better to use my skills to create new content and share for my own sites.

Yeah, as a writer do as you please - after all the implications will not negatively you so long as you're providing them with good work :)
