What are the benefits of republish content to other sites?

I have a website suppose abc.com, I published an article on my website's blog a week ago. During this time, I promote my post to various social media platform like Facebook, Twitter, G+, LinkedIn, etc. After 7 days, I republish my same post with a different title in medium.com, storify.com, linkedin.com. Does it hurt my SEO by creating duplicate content to other sites?

In my opinion,

Republishing contents following proper plagiarism guidelines can be very much beneficial for getting better rankings in search engine result pages (SERP’s).

If a piece of content becomes a hit, then you can republish it on various other sites for gaining more audience appreciation. You can also add something new to your previous content to make it more engaging.

Same applies for the social media platform as well. Most of the major websites republish their contents on social media to increase their exposure and build a larger audience base.

So there are a lot of benefits to be gained if republishing a content is done with regular updates and adding new angles to your old popular content.

Don't republish your website content on any other website, otherwise it will creates the matter of duplicate content on the eye of Google. That will effect your rankings on Google search results. Google only likes quality so always try to keep maintain that..

When your content appears on other websites it creates the following problem:

Assume your site has a popularity of 543 and the other sites that also have your content have popularities of 800, 236, 435, 1045 and 5060.

Google shows results at least partially according to site popularity.  That means your site shows up third in the results.  The vast majority of people click on the first site in the list.  Given that the content on all the sites is identical, your site will seldom get a click.

So keep your content on your own site.

It is going to depend on what platform you publish to. If the other platform allows you to set a canonical url back to your site on the article, I would say go for it. That will tell google that the true owner of the content is on your site. Otherwise I would say don’t post it, or try to come up with a different piece of content on those other sites that may entice a user to want to read your original piece.

Hope this helps.

Republishing your content to other platform is okay as long as you are pointing it to original URL (your website), i.e., the right canonical URL should be assigned. This is similar to content curation - however, with content curation, you are only getting a few sections of the whole blog post.

As for LinkedIn, Fb, and other social media and bookmarking sites, you are just merely sharing the URL most of the times. This strategy is more of increasing your reach. This also provides social signals to your site's traffic.

As Dr. Klahn said, I don't satisfied with the answer

When your content appears on other websites it creates the following problem:

Assume your site has a popularity of 543 and the other sites that also have your content have popularities of 800, 236, 435, 1045 and 5060.

Google shows results at least partially according to site popularity.  That means your site shows up third in the results.  The vast majority of people click on the first site in the list.  Given that the content on all the sites is identical, your site will seldom get a click.

So keep your content on your own site.

If the users click on the first site in the list, still that post has my website internal link on it. I could get so much of referral traffic from that sites. "More Traffic = More Popularity (as per your term)"
