Thanks temi - yes these two articles I just read suggests simply NOINDEX'ing any duplicate content on the syndicate site
The canonical tag is...
We were approached by a small business advisers website the other day and they asked us to share some of our original accountancy articles with them to publish on their site. This is content already on our website.
We are very happy for them to broadcast our accountancy articles...
If I am backlink targeting to rank highly for say 'accountants London' with my homepage then does targeting just 'accountants' help does anyone know?
ie. if say I rank 9th in Google for 'Accountants London' and dont do any more back-linking on that phrase, but instead start targeting...
I just hope I got them all. I will be watching GWT very closely yes. My main concern is that it will take a few weeks for the PR to be reallocated to the moved pages and as such the whole site will drop from the rankings for said time whilst Google works out what to do with it.

Yell wanted to charge us several hundred quid just for a very basic listing - in no-way an 'advert', just a link.

Spotted a few other places on the web...
I currently have 2 sitemaps (and each of those as xml plus xml.gz equivalent). One is generated from the sites main root, the other is auto-generated by WordPress in the /news/blog/ sub-dir.
