    Duplicate Content: Fact or Fiction?

    I'm really curious to find out how many people still believe this piece of fiction that Google will penalize your web site for sharing content that is found on another.

    It's been floating around forums and SEO blogs, and nearly everywhere else for a while, and I'm not understanding why. Maybe people just don't think.

    Even after Google released the news that there was no such thing as a duplicate content penalty, people still don't believe it. I mean, it came straight from the big 'G' and if they say there's no penalty....HELLO! There is no penalty!

    What does happen in the case of duplicate content is that the duplicate results are filtered from the search engines. Now, that's not to say it's not indexed because it is. You just have to click an extra time or two to see what all is there.

    I'm sure this will start a lot of drama, but I'd really like to see what people have to say.

    I haven't done this before since I use Google Adsense in my blog and website. but I believe Google will not penalize your website for sharing some content with opther various sites, except for some fraudulent clicks in your Adsense ads, if you enable it.

    Yeah. I do also think the same. In fact, I have seen various sites that the articles are copied from Wikipedia and other sites.

    BTW< may i know what will happen if they penalize your site?

    Yeah u r correct. Even duplicate articles also get huge visitors than the original contents...

    its just how you market. Content duplicasy is quite an old issue but its just who shows it first to the world.
    so all an all it depends on how you market your content.

    Do you think having a site that all the contents coming from wikipedia and other sites plus having Adsense will not endanger my site on having banned from Google?

    Your site won't be banned from Google unless you violate some of their Adsense policies, but your main thing will be ranking for your chosen keywords. You can have your site entirely fed from Wikipedia, but you will need to do some extra SEO for your site in order to get the rankings you seek. The higher your rankings of course, the more organic traffic you will receive from the search engines.

    once google says that you won't be getting any kind of ban from google, then i think we must all trust it.

    the myth about the subject is created mainly by some SEO service providers who want to create a state of confusion to the users and in the process make a quick buck.

    I think if you have unique content for your site you will have a better chance to get good seo results from the google. Google might not punish you but they will show your site as a poor result

    I think, with the duplicate content, that it's a myth that people should belive, Duplicate Content will hurt you in the long run anyway; you don't have a hope of ranking against the original, so why bother? Maybe there's no penalty, but it's still a bad thing to do.

    well google don't penalise your site but the ranking will not be good and they may show your site poor in quality or somthing like that. But always try to use original content as it is the best.
