    Indexing Lyrics Sites

    How are there so many indexed lyrics sites on Google with the same content?

    There are tons - but they're not hosting unique content. How can a new lyrics site get indexed?

    The Google Quality Raters Guidelines may provide some insight into that question:

    4.5 Copied Content that is NOT Spam
    Some copied content is not spam. Here are some examples: lyrics, poems, proverbs, quotes, etc. This type of content has no unique or central authority.
    If the page you are evaluating appears to be from a legitimate lyrics, poetry, etc. website, do not assign a Spam flag.
    If you think the page exists only to make money, you should assign a Spam flag.

    That last line seems like a joke. "If you think the page exists only to make money, you should assign a Spam flag." I think that 78% of the pages on the Internet are AdSense spam.

    Will, do you have a newer version of that document? I have the 2007 version that is linked to from the SEO Book site, but it doesn't have the section that you cite.

    That quote is from the July 2009 revision.

    I know they referenced SEOBook up there, so perhaps it's from there.
    SEOBook is a great website with a ton of content to help people learn about Search Engine Optimization and things of that nature.
    Check it out. :P

    I got it with a "do not share it outside the community" restriction.

    More I cannot say, except that Kovich is right on target.
