I have a site based on dance. We have a ton of dance move guides. If I want to submit articles to increase backlinks, should I be wary of duplicate content? My site is not well indexed btw ( PR2 =\ ). I would hate to have to rephrase 50 guides.

probably your best bet is to rephrase it and use a different title. that's all i do and no dup penaltys.

Or, you can hire someone to rephrase them if you hate that job. Hehe..

If you submit the same exact content to the article sites that appears on your site, you risk being hit for duplicate content - if your site is really not well indexed (which is not the same as not ranking well) you should attempt to ascertain the reason for that before going hard core on any link development. My two cents...

The whole duplication penalty issue is controversial - I have been submitting articles to a serious article bank, which I also use on my site - I am not sure that I am penalised for that.

Having your article's url filtered out of search results is the worst that should happen. That's not a penalty, it's a service to the search engine user, so they can find a wider variety of results on their search terms.

What good are articles if they are duplicate content?
I just don't get it.

To repeat a point I've made elsewhere, the big question with using duplicate articles to get link credits is whether links from the dupes pass benefits.

I just read an article stating before putting an article out to article directories or sites you should have it in your site first for the crawlers to hit it then get it out there. Anyone done this or hear about this?

if that was the case no one would steal content

I'm assuming you all are trying to get the most bang for your buck, and not give away the good stuff. Why not publish the full article on your site but publish a lite version in the article submission sites?

For example on your site publish:

10 Tips for painting your living room
(this is the full article with the best tips)

on the article site publish

Helpful Painting Tips when redecorating your living room
(this is a short version that has 3 tips with a link to the full page of 10 tips)

If I were a clever person I would take the three tips that were somewhere else and mix them in later in the article and not kludge them all together in the same order at the front or the end of the full article, but that's just me ...
