Full Blog Posts on the Web

We ask that you do not publish any articles from DBI in full.

In addition, please do the following:

  • Wait 30 days between the publication date and the time you re-post an article.
  • Include the canonical tag to the article so DBI is noted as the original source: <link rel=”canonical” href=”URL OF BLOG POST“> (or use an appropriate plugin).

Publishing Article Summaries

As stated above, publishing full articles is strictly prohibited. However, feel free to publish a summary of any DBI article along with a link to the full piece.

If you would like one of our writers to contribute an original article on your site, contact us here. If you include our Twitter handles, well help spread the love.
