Do you always cross-post (with canonical_url) the full contents of the article from your blog to dev.to? How has your organic search traffic responded?

I have only been posting excerpts here, without using canonical, and I'm thinking about changing strategies.

Yes I always cross post with full content and canonical. As for the organic traffic, obviously it’s suffered. But that’s more from me distributing dev.to links instead of my personal site links.

I just realized the network and distribution is much better here than it is for my unknown blog. If I didn’t answer your question, please let me know!
