    Black Hat Practices Question


    Hello,

    We have a competitor who recently added new pages to their website. They basically created pages for different industries that would work for their product. So for example, software for retail, software for restaurants, software for events, etc. Each of the pages have the same content except they are just replacing the business type in their sentences. Seems like a way to cheat the system with having the same content. Yes or No?

    Depends how unique the content is really.

    Wouldn't worry about it... if they've literally just changed one word then I doubt Google would hold any of the pages in high regard
