Medium is the best publishing platform online, there is a lot of traffic on it but you might want to have your own blog as well.

The problem is that if you write an article on your blog and then copy and paste it or even re-write it a bit on Medium it will be considered as a duplicate content.

How To Publish On Medium Your Blog Posts
Medium is one of the top 300 most visited websites on the web according to alexa!
If you are creating great content you might want to consider adding your ideas on this platform as well.
The first thing that you need to do in order to be able to post something on Medium is to create an account.
Once you have created an account, complete your profile and fill in all the options in your settings tab.
I strongly suggest that you create a publication section on your profile.
This is like having your own blog where people can subscribe too. You can even modify the menu of that page.
Medium have by default an ‘Import story‘ feature that will add a canonical tag to the post you are importing to Medium.
A canonical tag gives Google directions on what pages to crawl and show in the Search results.
Adding a canonical tag on your Medium articles is like saying that the original content is on your blog at that specific URL.
“hey Google, this is just a copy and paste, please do not consider it and crawl the one I am linking in the canonical tag.”
