    Why Google Index website that do copy and paste Well


    Dear All Masters,

    I have such a big question running over my head. I saw some website that ranked very well in google SERP. I found that most of the articles posted on the site is pasted from the original site. As far as i know, google love original content, but i found in some cases that this site indexed better than other websites that write on their own...

    Is it ok we just copy and paste an article from press release of the official site ?

    Thanks alot...

    I agree Google likes original content but Google also says that "I like what your website visitor likes". Suppose I have copied content from your website and put in my blog with better representation for user by putting images, video and navigational links then visitors are going to like my content ( duplicate ). If that content get social shares or some links then it might out rank your website in search. So in short, its not about duplicate content but its about what visitors likes.

    What in the hell is mysterious about original content being better than re-using content somebody else created?

    The Problems is Google sometimes has a hard time figuring out who the original Author is. I believe Matt talked about this specific issue in a video and he said "It's who we crawl first, but not always". I'm guessing this is a major issue internally in Google and they trying to figure this problem out (Google is not perfect)

    There are many factors that go into ranks and the site that they are on, and how deep that article is from the homepage and inner link juice, external link juice, and trust of a site can all play into ranks. So thus a site with copied (Aggregated, syndicated) content can rank higher.

    Think about it. The AP syndicates all of their content, and they post it on their website. Would you rather read that content on their site or your local news site? It's a complex problem for google to overcome.

    This is why it's very important when releasing new important articles, that you use Google Webmaster tools, Twitter or Facebook and get GoogleBot to grab your page first.
