I am the founder of This Dog's Life, a website delivering original content to dog lovers (news, lifestyle and articles for urban dog owners).
Someone told me I could make money syndicating articles, but I have never heard of this. They said that there are certain media networks that have a ton of blogs and need content to put on it. If you syndicate your content to these networks, they pay you.
I have heard of syndicating for SEO and brand awareness. I have also heard of Outbrain, where you pay to have your articles featured on other websites as a "related."
I just haven't heard of getting paid to syndicate.
If anyone has any insight, I would love to know.
