I found this article which explains content syndication really well. This is similar to what I had in mind when I started Syndication Express. I believe this would be a great thing for us to do in the community. Please click the link below and continue reading the rest of the article and leave your comments below.
Content syndication is quickly gaining popularity as one of the blogosphere’s favorite content marketing strategies in 2014 & the years to come, and for good reason. Content syndication is a simple and relatively easy way to drive hordes of traffic to any blog/website without having to invest the time in search engine optimization or the money in paid traffic.
What Is Content Syndication?
In essence, content syndication happens when a blog syndicates content from another blog.
For example, if I was to write a blog post on www.example.com and a fellow blogger duplicated it and posted the content on his blog at www.anotherexample.com with attribution to my original post, that would be a prime example content syndication.
Some website owners may even syndicate the entire RSS feed of another blog, meaning that as soon as any content is published on the syndicated blog, it’s automatically posted on their website as well.
It’s an easily understood concept, and you might have heard it being referred to as “article syndication” or “blog syndication”. The three terms all mean the same thing.
Benefits Of Getting Your Content Syndicated
The foremost and most obvious benefit of content syndication is, of course, the resulting traffic. Providing that you craft a compelling call-to-action at the end of every syndicated post, you can channel the existing traffic of an established website to your own blog — for free.
I know several people who make their entire online living as affiliate marketers solely through the volume traffic they can generate with content syndication.
At the same time, you are also building up your brand visibility and authority. Increasing the number of times each of your blog posts is seen around the blogosphere increases the visibility of your brand, which in turn builds the authority behind your name as a blogger.
