Keeping fresh content on your website is vital to both search engine optimization as well as keeping your visitors coming back. Sometimes, the creative juices just aren’t flowing, and sometimes you don’t have the extra cash to pay a writer. This is were free, republishable content comes into play.
Though it might be tempting to simply copy and paste content you find on other websites, I’ll issue you this warning: DON’T! It’s both illegal and unethical to reprint content you find on the internet without permission from the copyright holder, and word travels fast in the tight knit webmaster community.
Do not despair, there are excellent sources of free article type content that you can use. I am quite fond of GoArticles, which has an immense and timely database of articles ranging across a wide variety of topics. Almost daily, I can find an interesting new piece to post on my POS System website.
The key is, make sure you follow their republishing guidelines, never change any of the verbage, and always make sure you post the proper copyright information. Also, it is in good form to link back to both the author’s website and GoArticles as well.
