Author Bio can be same in all articles?

Msg#: 4632004 posted 11:20 am on Dec 17, 2013 (gmt 0)


I put unique articles on various sites on daily basis, I just want to confirm either Author Bio should be unique as well to escape form plagiarism?
Or I can put one Author Bio in all articles?

Hi RajaAdnan,

When you say plagiarism, if you wrote have rights to the content, it's not plagiarism.

I think if possible, though, what's nice about unique author bios is that you can have a more compelling call to action crafted to fit the content. That can be a fair bit of work though.

Yes, Author Bio can be same in all Articles because it is related to Author's Information. And of course, Such information never be changed.

I think we're talking about factory-made articles with a similarly factory-made bio for verisimilitude. Don't you think your readers will notice after a while if all the "authors" have identical life stories? At least make up something different for each name. Pull it out of a database.

{name} was born in {random major city} and studied {random academic subject} at {random large university}. {He/She} worked as a {three random occupations} before turning to writing. {He/She} has traveled in {random country or state} and currently makes {his/her} home in {different random major city}.

If culturally appropriate, add
{He/She} is married and has {random number 1-3} children.
