This week, I wanted to write about a single theme, and the most pressing topic of today is Content Syndication or Repurposing your Blog posts.

When I talk about content syndication, there are a couple of questions that will arise in your brain. What is it? Why should I do it? How can I do it? So, I decided to write about it today.

Before we get into the list for this week, I want to make a confession here – This week’s list is not arranged in terms of ranking, i.e., the first blog post is not the best among the several blog posts that I have read over the past week. I have just arranged the items in the list to aid your understanding and flow of the topic. You have to read the first blog post in the list to understand about the second blog post, and so on.

  1. This blog post by Neil Patel, The Step-by-Step Guide to Syndicating Content (Without Screwing up Your SEO) goes in-depth into content syndication.

  3. If there was only one place I want to go, to learn about content syndication, it would be Denise Wakeman’s newsletter. This is exactly where I learnt about content syndication..

    Before you start thinking ‘OK. This guy is affiliated with Denise Wakeman and promoting her, just because he is getting paid by her’, let me tell you, “I am not affiliated to her in anyway. Indeed she doesn’t even know that I exist. It’s just that I found her newsletter to be extremely valuable, and I wanted to share it with you. “

    • How to get access?

      • Go to Denise Wakeman’s website.

      • Click on ‘FREE 7 Day Visibility Challenge’ in the left side menu bar. (Look at the picture below)

  4. If you signed up to Denise Wakeman’s newsletter or if you knew a little about Content syndication, you would have definitely heard about Medium. Medium is a blogging platform. But, what it has gained a lot of attraction as a syndication platform. It lets you import your blog post into the platform. That’s it. There’s no tedious cut, copy, paste and formatting problems here. All you need to do is publish your blog post and then give the url to create a similar blog post.

    A lot of people have managed to get a lot of exposure in medium thereby getting huge number of website visitors and sales. But, it is tricky to get a following in medium. It’s not so easy. The problem is, there is no pre-written formula for gaining followers. That is until now.
