🌍What is

Content syndication is a strategy where you allow other websites to republish your content, such as articles or blogs. These websites might choose to republish your content in its entirety, or they might just use an excerpt. Regardless, the republishing site should always credit you, the original creator, usually with a link. Typically, the attribution might say something like: 'This article was originally published on [your name/domain].' The primary goal of content syndication is to help you reach a larger and new audience.
