I have an account on wordpress. I am writing blogs there. Now I have published my same blogs with same content over DZONE and geekswithblogs.net and few other . Now my question is whether the SEO ranking of wordpress blogs will be hit. If yes then may I know how can I prevent that to happen if I post the same content over the other blogs publishing sites. Can I cross-link (by giving the original link of wordpress) on other sites, will that help me to prevent the SEO hit ? Any other suggestions will be so helpful. Should I stop posting over other sites and remain stick to my original one?
The best thing you can do is let Google know the original source of the content. If possible, do the following:
1) Use rel="canonical" on the republished articles linking to the original article
2) On the republished articles link back to the original article and cite it as the original source
3) There's also a new Google meta tag that may help as well
