It likely won’t propagate all that fast, and I do think it’s basically a good idea.
Allowing others to use your articles for content and getting a link back is a super idea.
I don’t know about syndication – if the article appears in many unrelated websites and stays there it may not be so good.
Anyone have practical experience with this?
There are many ways to say the same thing, and it is always possible to have the same article look very different to a search engine.
This is of course only worth the trouble with real quality info articles.
Paid for articles are not generally the problem.
Unfortunately, it is like that with google especially. It see all those sites with the same article as duplicate sites. Things like press releases etc.
So, should you wish to ersue this, make sure that you allow people to alter the wording of the articles and I would really suggest you do not use it on your own site, because many webmasters would take the time to change it.. and it would be bad to get penalised for duplicate content when it was yours – especially if you are looking to get an advantage for the links that you will receive.
Hope that all makes sense.
It is just that we have been dealing with duplicate content issues almost all year now.. sometimes it was stolen from our site.. but most of the time, it was as simple as a press release that 100’s of other sites also have.
