4 Reasons Why You Ought To Avoid Duplicate Content Like A Plague
It is no news that people are in the habit of just copying and pasting other people's intellectual properties. While some websites make room for people
to do so with reprint rights they make available, others don't and when people use these articles and content, they commit what is known as
In the past, no one really cared about this. But recently -late 2007-eearly 2008- google came out with the duplicate content penalty and anyone who
still thinks this doesn't work, here are 4 reasons why you ought to avoid duplicate content.
This is often carried out by the search engines in the form of delisting the website and in some cases, blacklisting them. With this, most websites with
the same content get to suffer the same fate. Most of the time, google chooses articles based on the first date they went up.
The rest, it just shoves down or delists them completely. Therefore, if you don't want your domain name to be blacklisted -and to my knowledge, there
hasn't been one that had its ban lifted- and your website removed from the search engine rankings, please avoid duplicate content completely.
Most of the time, people do a quick search for products before buying. If the website doesn't show up on the search engines, they are very likely to go
look for alternatives, particularly when they don't known the website address or url. You are also less likely to have older customers dissociate
themselves from you as soon as word goes round that you were delisted because of duplicate content.
No Search Engine Rankings
This will never happen. Although it has been said that it doesn't really matter if the content are just on no more than 10 websites, the truth is that you
do not want to get in trouble by having all those search engine rankings that you probably spent a lot of money and time on getting delisted or moved
to the 100,000th page where they will never get seen.
Lots of people with the same content
