Also, did you know that that if the blogs that you post in here have referral links to your website, it helps with SEO.  If you want to look it up, search "Backlinks", :)

Yes, I knew that. But in reality, I try to post different things on the two platforms and I provide links back to my website from my AR posts.

Actually, you should not have identical posts in different websites.

The SEs will choose one as the "original", and it is not guaranteed it will be your website, even if you post there first.

1. Does your site get indexed immediately or sporatically? For your theory to work g would have to index your article before they index the article posted here. Not likely.

2. your theory used to be the case but now duplicate content is attributed to the site with the most authority. Your authority can not compare to the AR authority.

I don't post duplicate content. I have not posted that many blogs here as I found there are not that many readers, I get more on my own blogs or other sites.

Actually, no.  There is a lot of research by some brilliant minds on this and people who are in the trenches with internet marketing (both white and black hat).  From personal experience as well, I've seen great benefits by having duplicate content out there.  Hasn't hurt my rankings any.

You don't want to copy and paste the same content on both places. Google will tend not to index duplicate copy and will even remove it from searches. Backlinks to your website will help immensily. What I like to do is take my blogs, then rewrite them on my other platforms. Google likes blog posts with 500 words or more. But I've found that my posts which have over 1200 words end up very high in search rankings.

OK, I'll bite.

is the benefit simply statistical or is there any real life benefit.In medical terms, is the difference clinically significant? (I.e. this can kill you)

Will the benefit be +300 points in the B.A.R.F. authority index or 7 more impressions a hour? week? month? year?

Give me something real to sink my teeth into.

I have only a few blogs and they are dated.  In our area I doubt realtors websites carry any weight SEO. This is not how clients find you. We have o ver 200,000 realtors in SFBA. May be 15% have a website account.

You should post to your blog and then link to it from AR with a paid account so it has "Do Follow" links.

Sarah, I post my market reports and seller/buyer advice to my site first and then to AR second if I carry it over. I tend to post things to AR that are not on my site, but it is also content that is more musing and practical Realtor material that home buyers and sellers don't care about.

Actually if you post something that backlinks to your site and it gets your site found by consumers with long tail key search phrases you have helped your sites SEO.  Now I don't mean to post the idential blog post on both, I have never done that, but posting on AR has certainly brought people to my site.
