Putting Published Articles on Helium

United States
July 12, 2008 11:57am CST
ok, I am a member on 3 different sites... I'd like to write more on all 3 instead of just 1. Can I put some of MY articles, my by-line, from 1 of the others, and onto Helium?

Check the terms of the other sites. At Associated Content, you can submit your work either exclusive or non exclusive. Exclusive work can never be published elsewhere. Non exclusive can be published on other sites. Work published on Helium is non exclusive, so you can publish it again. Triond wants you to publish there first, but afterward you are free to publish again. Be careful and make sure you understand the policy of each site where you write. Another thing to consider, if you publish the same article in 2 or 3 places, be sure you use the same byline so it doesn't look like it was plagiarized.

It would have to depend on what who you write for exactly. If you don't mind me asking, what other sites do you write for outside of Helium? I'm just wondering on that. You would probably want to check the TOS on every site you are involved. I don't want to say you can and then find out you can't. That would be foolish on my end. So, I guess my advise would be just look at the TOS and go from there.

I think that is possible for Helium but it not possible for other sites you are required to post the articles there for a day or two for the admin to check whether it was posted somewhere else with copyscape. But other members may flag your article out as material of plagiarism. However if its written by you and the rights belong to you, I do see if there is any problem there. I am not really au-fait with Helium TOS, though I am a member myself. Cheers.

It depends on which sites they have appeared on and who has the rights to the articles. Helium states that you must have all necessary rights to publish the content you provide to the Site and you are responsible for making sure your submission of the content does not violate any copyright or other rights. Other sites may not want you to republish your work, so you need to check carefully. When your articles appear at Helium you retain the rights so you can publish the same article elsewhere, but if you submit to sites like Triond, they will reject any work that has already appeared on the internet. It is always better to write new articles, or to rewrite your articles so they are not identical. When search engines find duplicated content on different sites they will give it a lower ranking than they give to new content.
