It better be quite a few because as from late February this year Google is getting tough on duplicate content. I will explain.
Recently I submitted my profile to an art website listing (as you do often enough when promoting your work). I pulled one of my paragraphs from my website profile. The site owner contacted me requesting that I re-write my profile so they do not get penalised by Google search engine for duplicate content. I questioned this as I thought you only had to vary the article a little and that was OK. Not now folks. The helpful site owner gave me a link to some information and sure enough I had an issue. I had to write a completely different block of text.
This got me thinking. Now I really need to sit down and do a few profile variations. This raises the question; do I put my best written content on my own website or the higher profile representation websites that may be more likely to bring me the work? What are your thoughts on this???
