There are a few facets to it:
Do you have express permission to do so?
You can't claim points.
Be aware that most likely it will not help clients find you.  For that, you'll need unique content of interest to them.

Ya can, with sites like Keeping Matters Current, which supplies random content designed to be copied and posted, but does it really help you build SEO, or readership?  When KMC releases a new post, there are many AR'ers, who post the very same information.

I think you would benefit by at least writing your own article and maybe including links to  the news article to get better engagement.

I believe you got your answer from Active Rain Member Support. But why don't you do some original content? That's what gets you views, not a bunch of reposting of things that many might have already read.

Marvette gives you a great answer. Do an intro or write about the pros/cons on that link.

You wouldn't want to just include the link & say READ THIS.

why would you want to do that? If the article is out there it's likely been read by anyone looking for that information.  Unique content is best.

Hello,

Active Rain Member Support has you answer, and like Alan May stated, I see the same blog reposted over and over...so unoriginal.  A
