Is it appropriate to use the same content (or with slight changes) for article submission on websites like a medium for SEO purposes?

    Would you define SEO -- I'm thinking it's some sort of corporate officer position. And you might consider expound on 'websites like medium' since the benefit of that exposure might not be clear to everyone, including myself.

    Inappropriate Near-identical articles on different websites discredits the information by appearing to be farmed (astroturfed), or to be 'news laundering' where dubious information is quoted from a circle of linked articles to obscure the source. They will be ranked as similar content, and will appear together in searches, making it more obvious. (a better way to boost your legitimacy would be to build up a series of articles around the same topic, making you an 'authority') –– There may be other answers if you elaborate on 'appropriate for SEO purposes'
