Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks - Different? Better?
Should you stay away from using PLR articles because Google hates duplicate content???
It’s not that Google hates duplicate content – after all – they index millions of pages that have duplicate content – so if they hate it – why do they bother indexing it at all???
The “duplicate content penalty” myth has gotten out of control! You really need to be more SPECIFIC when you talk about this stuff or tons of people will get scared and take the poor advice on avoiding duplicate content because they think they will get banned or hit in the face with a brick.
Simply not so.
So – does that mean that Google LOVES duplicate content – or do they just hate it but tolerate it???
I wrote a few articles that will give you insight – I suggest you read them because they have all the dirt! I’ll link them at the bottom, but let’s try to get one of those summary type statements in the mix.
I say that you need to look at it like Google and the other search engines do – they want to rank a page on top – so they do their calculations and stuff and make decisions.
Do they do something DRASTIC when they see a page that looks like another page in their index???
NO! They don’t PENALIZE you just for being similar to another page – but they might penalize you for something else!

Ahhhh… so that means similar content is better than EXACT, right???
YES! That’s the best way to look at it! (continued – read more of this article…)
