Using My Content

Look, it’s the internet and we all love to share. I am really open with my willingness to allow you to us my content. All I ask is that you keep the attribution in place, so people know that I created it and I really appreciate a link back to my home page or to the specific blog post where you found the content.

If you want to use one of my social media comics or funny images in a book or blog post, just let me know using my contact form. Heck, I might just promote your post to my social media followers.

This is important, though

Please do NOT scrape or copy/paste my content.

Copying and pasting my content is not allowed and it will actually hurt your site in the long-term. Google timestamps the creation of every article it indexes on the Web. That means when I publish my blog post or article, Google knows that my content existed on the Web before your scraped or coped version.

Please do not copy and paste content from SocMedSean.com

When Google finds a copy of a piece of content, known as duplicate content, then Google analyzes which piece of content existed first. The copy of the content is then tagged with a duplicate content penalty and negatively impacts your entire site and domain. 

As a result, copying a pasting or scraping my content will only result in a bad things happening to your site.

If you want to comment about my blog post and write your own experiences, thoughts, and feedback and link to my article, you are more than welcome to do that.

If you would like to see a few good examples of how other bloggers have used my social media comics and cartoons, here are few examples:

Notice how they kept the attribution in place? Some of them even linked back to my site or the original blog post? That’s just good web etiquette.

I hope that helps. If you have any questions, just shoot me a note.

Cheers!
