When I publish a article to [an article site] will I get a duplicate content penalty if I put that article on my blog and other sites even though I am the author.

If you're posting the exact same article in multiple locations, google will likely only show one of them in the SERPs. If you want it to possibly show up in SERPs on your site AND on ezinearticles, you will need to vary the content.

However, if you goal is to build inbound links, don't worry about it. The "penalty" is only in SERPs, not on value passed by the link.

Thanks, for the clarifying this for me. So my site would not take a hit or penalty if I had the same article on ezine and my suite. Google would still give me credit it would just choose which link to give the credit too ?

My question related to this: Do article submission sites pass link juice? or are these links a "no-follow"?

I would suggest you rewrite your articles. The benefits far out weights the efforts put into it.

1. It hardly takes a few minutes to rewrite an article. Just add a few paras and delete some. Change the title and keywords. Rewrite the first and last paragraphs.

2. Submit them to various directories. They'd all be considered as different by the search engines.

3. The search engines know that it is not possible for webmasters to have 100% unique content all the time. If you write about a subject the chances are there's already another article based on it.

Hope it helps
