I do both - fresh and copied from my website.  I link back to my website from here for SEO from the backlinks.

Certain content is cross posted here but in a different format.  Our company listings are posted on our site in one format and then the realbird or their competitor's listing format gets posted here.  Same (for the most part) content, although the company website has more details, posted in different formats.


I've long ago stopped posting IDENTICAL content multiple places and I focus primarily on my company site and when duplicate or similar content is posted (like the listings) it is posted to the company site first and indexed before posting to additional sites (like Active Rain).

I publish unique content. I want the words that follow my name to be mine.

Update - oh, I misread the question. For things like contests, I post unique material here only. For business related things, I usually publish on my website first, and then copy here with a link to there.

Ditto what Debe Maxwell, CRS, and Ryan Huggins - Thousand Oaks, CA said. I will share here after the post is indexed by Google.  Exceptions are entries to AR contests. Contest entries are original to AR and not shared anywhere else.

Some posts on our site are different than on AR, and some are similar and vice versa.  I post on our site first as well as publish there.  AR is next after that.

I blog here and on my site.   Sometimes I put on both, but always on my site first to rank.

Thanks everyone for replies so far. Super helpful to know how folks are leveraging ActiveRain, and (once the Gremlins are taken care of) we plan to start quite an qctive blog here.

I would not recommend as it would be dupe content and prob outrank your site (unless you do canonical tag). Better approach is unique content and backlink (assuming you have a paid account).

Duplicate content on two sites (I learned the hard way) is not great for SEO.  Linking to the content in your real estate blog here while referencing similar idea in an entirely different post, however, works very well.

unique, but sometimes including links because that helps the site
