    Duplicates Pages .. does google know original site?


    If one website uploads new content to their site, and then a competitor copies the content BEFORE the original site has had the new page seen by google and then the competitors page gets indexed first.. does google then think that 2nd site is the first site to have that page?

    Probably. It does look at the pubish time as well if your server passes that info in the header.

    I truly hope so. And I'm sure brandall is right, otherwise my site would have died a long time ago.

    Google can look at the original cache date

    The possible exception i have seen suggested is if an authority site publishes the content a small site with no trust rank may see there content go supp.

    No personal experince of this just read it somewhere. Don't know if its true
