Which is better: Exact Duplicate Content or Similar?

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!

Yes, Google most likely prefers content that is NOT “EXACT DUPLICATE CONTENT”!

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…)

Get Lots of Web Traffic by Building Web Pages With PLR Articles With Great Words and Getting Links

You can get lots of traffic by building web pages that have great words when you get quality links pointing at them!

Do you want to be a successful web publisher and build web sites that make money?

The secret to success as a web publisher may be simpler than you realize.

Are you looking for a time tested system that will help you learn and understand the secret to building profitable web sites? Are you tired of getting distracted by all the time consuming tasks that seem to be nothing more than a waste of your precious time???

Build pages and get links.

That is the secret SEO system for success as a web publisher and it is my mantra!

It should be your mantra too, because people who build pages and get links regularly are quite often very successful web publishers!

The internet marketing search engine optimization business is really so simple, but so many people insist on making it more complex than it needs to be. I believe anyone can make good money with an online business by simply focusing on building web sites and adding new pages regularly that have lots of great words on them!

It’s simple – you build web sites with real valuable content web pages that have great words on them! Build pages with lots of thematically related keywords – words that are naturally associated with the topics on the pages. When you build web pages like that then you simply make sure you have good text links from other web sites that are pointing at your web pages!

You need text links that have good words in them pointing at the pages on your site!

Build pages and get links. That’s the process. That is the system. It’s that easy!

So if it’s really that easy – why isn’t everyone doing this????

Ahhh… yes – it seems so simple but I know from experience that most people make things far more complicated than is necessary! They dwell on things that have no relation to making money. They get distracted by things and try to learn all about everything, even spending time on things that have no direct impact on success.

People spend too much time analyzing and planning and NOT enough time DOING!

It’s a numbers game!

I often get emails from members of Article Underground, or from susbcribers of my marketing newsletter. Occasionally I will include them here on my blog.

Here is a message I got today and the response. It may be helpful for others.

“I would like to ask your advice. I am doing a website on KEYWORD PHRASE. I know this is a massive market but I took your advice and used a mis spelling hoping to get traffic through the back door. I am on the first page of google for this term, but am still not getting a lot of traffic. I have got about 13 articles on there and intend to put lots more on. I am currently going back over the mistakes I made when I first joined AU. EG. changing titles, duplicate posting and link text as I thought this may be the reason. I have also set up 2 other web sites on this theme and 2 blogs which all point to the main site. My main concern is that the market is too broad anyway. I’m not niave enough to know that 13 articles is going to get me hoards of traffic but I wanted to ask your honest opinion  if you think I should stop now and just write it off to experience and concentrate on tighter niches or do you think I should carry on? I don’t want to waste time flogging a dead horse as time is precious and I am already working into the early hours of the morning every day. If you think I should carry on, could you tell me at what stage the traffic should start to flow in more. EG. How many articles need to be on my website and how many articles on average I should be posting on that website per week. I am so focused on making this work, so if I have to start again I will. I just want to get it right and not just be a busy fool!”

Unless you are #1 for “credit card” or “music” you really can’t count on an overwhelming amount of traffic for one keyword. One page or even 10 pages is simply not enough data to make any real conclusions about.

It’s a numbers game!

The key to going after top rankings and free search engine traffic is to put a lot out there. Especially when you are new as many of the larger return traffic phrases need to be earned. It’s a major accomplishment for any new site to get any traffic immediately.

If you are you are on the right track! Search engines reward sites they trust and you earn trust by establishing a track record. So keep putting fresh content out there and earn some respect! Traffic will increase with time. I’m sure if you look at your stats and study the traffic graph you’ll see as you add more pages the trend will be up. That is your goal – always keep the trend up.

Also, some pages will go up – some will go down. Fluctuation is normal. So never rest on one page ranking high as you need to have more aces up your sleeve to slip into place when pages naturally drop. Also – watch your stats so you can catch pages that are dropping and get them back on top by adding more words to the pages (freshness) and also getting the pages more quality text links with the words in them. (continued – read more of this article…)

PLR Articles: Similar Content or Exact Duplicate Content???

I just got an email asking if there was any profit potential with Article Underground PLR Articles because of “duplicate content penalties” causing problems with getting traffic.

Ahhhh…. looking at the galss half empty instead of half full… As I have said before – it’s all in the way you look at things.

When you change the way you look at things – the things you look at change!

Absolutely there can be profits using PLR articles! You can use the articles in many creative ways that will snag you targeted traffic that buys products or clicks! 

You need WORDS on your web pages and lots of them IF you want lots of free search engine traffic! PLR articles can be a great way to build up web sites and create high value real content pages that people will want to visit!

PLR articles are great inexpensive tools you can use to build web pages that will bring your web site(s) more targeted traffic!

Not ALL PLR Articles are crap! Article Underground articles have real value to visitors. That’s what you should be concerned about. Will people be happy when they visit my web site?

It’s how you use PLR articles though that can help you get more traffic than the other guys who may be less fond of working. It’s not hard work even – it’s smart work that makes your web pages better than the Average Joe’s!

Using a PLR article on a web page is not in itself going to get you #1 on Google! It’s how you use the article to build a web page with good profitable words and real value for the visitors – you need to find your audience. You need good quality links pointing at the page!

There are variables that make one page better than another. Variables that make one web site more powerful and authoritative than others.

The best of us will find ways to make our web sites better.

So – what about duplicate content?? Isn’t it a problem?

There is a big difference bewtween SIMILAR content – such as pages incorporating PLR articles – an EXACT DUPLICATE CONTENT – such as identical pages.

I’ll share some info that you should find helpful and at the bottom I’ll include links to some further discussions. Dupe content is a hot topic!

First off, Article Undeground members join for a number of reasons. The articles may be one of them. There are many other features that are worth the price of the subscription. Links in the blogs may be enough! Also great research and tutorials and a killer private forum.

AU Members see value in many of the benefits. That is why I still have many members from back in Feb. of 2006. They stay members because they keep getting value.

Not all of the 350 AU members actually download each months zip. Generally it is about HALF.

Current – as of today – 24 days after the current sets were released – downloads are as follows:

April 16, 2007 Article set 1 – 127 of 350 downloaded
April 16, 2007 Article set 2 – 108 of 350 downloaded

And of those 108 that downloaded set 1’s 400 articles – not every member will use each one of the 400 articles in the zip. Even if they use MANY of the articles there is a good chance they will modify the articles at least a little. It pays to spend a little extra effort on tweaking.

Even if they do not modify, tweak or creatively use the articles (they do) – a duplicate or “syndicated article” does not in itself cause problems with Google. It depends on the application as to whether Google will want to index the page.

Also, there are a million and one ways to creatively use the articles. It’s too easy to midify them and make YOUR web pages more unique. It is a rare chance that 2 members will use an article in exactly the same way. It is rare that 2 web pages are identical. AU offers tutorials on how to customize articles and create unique web sites that have YOUR PERSONALITY stamped on them.

Duplicate Content can be looked at in several different ways. It’s not a death sentence in itself to have an article that someone else has on their web site – in fact – there is no reason to worry about posting a PLR or syndicated article on your web site – that in itself is not a problem. It’s SIMILAR CONTENT not an EXACT DUPLICATE web page.

That’s how newspaper sites do it when they syndicate their articles. There is no penalty as such against that.

So what kinds of so-called “duplicate content” are there out there???

1. Similar Content – PLR Articles – News Syndication – Original Articles on more than 1 site – (parts of a page are the same as pages on site or on other sites)

2. Exact Duplicates (same web pages 100% as others on site or off site)

3. Public Directory Article Syndication (when 1,000’s of people use the same exact articles unmodified and with the same author box and external text links – as in the case of goarticles.com and ezinearticles.com)

I’ll give you my take on each:

1. In the case of similar content with PLR articles or articles you have written and use on more than 1 site – there should be no concern. Use your own template or design your own web page for each site that will include an article. (continued – read more of this article…)

I’m Going Web 2.0 with Squidoo

I’ve been quietly studying “web 2.0” in the shadows, but am now coming to the surface and ready to add social bookmarking and web 2.o tactics to the training I provide here on my blog and at Article Underground and other projects in development.

The interesting thing for me about “web 2.0” tactics is that it brings me back to the earliest days of the web (in 1995 for me) when the goal was to publish a web site with real valuable content. That was before we figured out that ranking on top of the search engines for a word could bring us boat loads of money.

Back then it was just TOO EASY to get top rankings than to have to be concerned about creating “valuable content”. As a result time shifted from writing to creating pages with the intention of ranking.

Ironically here we are 11 years later and the trend now is to go back to the basics and provide REAL VALUABLE content and “become an expert”. I’m happy that’s the case!

And you should be too as I’m certain that you are an expert on something!

In the days ahead I’ll be covering the new trends in traffic generation as well as unveiling some interesting projects. I can’t wait to tell you about them.

One of the most exciting Web 2.0 sites I have found is SQUIDOO (how do you say squidoo?).

I’ll be setting up more lenses in the future but for now added one on the Article Underground Content and Traffic System. (continued – read more of this article…)

Relevance Rules! More Powerful than PageRank?

Relevance Rules!

But is Relevance more powerful than PageRank?

Linking your articles properly on your own web site can make the difference between getting a good amount of traffic and getting jumbo sized boat loads of traffic from top rankings for all kinds of keywords, even the more competitive ones! 

SECRET WEAPON REMINDER: MATCHING TITLES with LINK TEXT is very powerful!

I was recently asked by an Article Underground member how they can organize their sites so that visitors can find all the articles.

The first suggestion was proper use of CATEGORY MENU PAGES and proper use of article excerpts.

But does linking for a visitor and linking for a search engine have the same requirements?

Yes… more than you’d think! 

This prompted further discussion on what kinds of text links are the best.

It made me realize once again that while PageRank is important and will help a page get top rankings, what is perhaps even more important than that is the surrounding text and relevance of the words on the linking page.

Google rewards for RELEVANCE!

It makes sense! Links from pages with the same/similar keywords should be counted as MORE RELEVANT links than a say an unrelated link for a TACO RECIPE coming from an ANTI-SPYWARE site.

Yes, it makes sense!

You can use this to help you organize your site so your visitors have a better experience with the bonus effect of showing Google that your linked pages are RELEVANT and deserve top rankings because if the linking page’s REPUTATION.

Ahhh…. yes, the text link and the relevance of the page that is linking it… it is the SECRET WEAPON I have been telling you guys about it for some time. (continued – read more of this article…)

Are You Getting the Most From Christmas Holiday Traffic?

Getting the Most From Christmas Holiday Traffic

Make more money this holiday season! It’s easier than you may think!

Well, it’s that time of year again. The annual Christmas holiday season is here and things are getting pretty crazy.

Where I live, in Newport Beach, California, USA, it is getting pretty difficult to go out and do even the most basic of things.

Everyplace is so crowded. That can be fun, but it also makes everything take so much longer than it should. It’s no wonder more and more people are shopping online! Shopping can be a hassle at the mall!

But time is running out! It’s the last few days that you can order online gifts and expect that they arrive in time for Christmas.

Actually it is pretty risky at this point, as today is Monday and we only have 4 more “business days” before Christmas weekend is here (Christmas falls on Monday December 25). (continued – read more of this article…)

Your Domain’s Home Page is Like a Magazine Cover!

Think of your web sites home page as a magazine!

Your HOME page is the COVER or TABLE of CONTENTS and should get people to the pages that will make you the most money! 

I would first try to build the sites front page so it accomplishes YOUR goals of getting visitors TO your most important ARTICLE PAGES.

So make sure you have nice TITLE LINKs and DESCRIPTIONs that point to those pages. Put as many as you can without looking spammy.

Then when you are finished type in that URL and analyze in AUKDAT Keyword Density Tool (continued – read more of this article…)
