Elaine Currie In her Article My Magic Article Doubler Suggests you actually have 2 versions of your Article one for your web page and one for the Article Submission Directories. Elaine suggest's that you can Add a Paragraph rich in Keywords for your Personal version, (

A simple method of Maintaining 2 versions of your articles is to have a Web Page and a Blog. The Articles in your Blog are for the public Domain and the Articles in your web page are your unique copies. In the Resource Box of your Online Web Page Article place the Following statement For a Version of this article that you can publish on your own web site please visit my article collection
