    Google penalization for copy and pasting content?


    Hi, my name is Nina. I am very new to SEO and would like to learn as much as I can about it to make money part time.

    So I have watched a few videos already and have a few questions:
    1- Creating content is very easy for me. If I do that, and create the same page with different headlines (that
    include cities), will google penalize me? For example, let's say I write an article on the relationship between
    gingivitis and obesity. And as the headline I put, "Alpine Obesity and Gingivitis" for a page, and for another I
    put, "Jersey City Obesity and Gingivitis" and they have the SAME content. Will google penalize me for this?
    The goal here is to be able to rank first on google for these terms and rent these sites out to local businesses.

    2- What is the best way to make $500/month? I want to see if I can achieve this goal. From what I have gathered,
    is that there are two ways: 1- copy and paste and rent sites out, and 2- create content and get visitors and
    put affiliate links. What are your opinions?

    Thanks,
    Nina

    Hey Nina,

    Welcome to SEOchat.

    I don't think they'd rank. Why don't you write fresh content for each?

    Because for each town I want my site to be first. There are millions of towns in the U.S. I can't write a new fresh content for each one.

    That's not creating good content, read about great content.

    Hi Haneensirri

    As Test-ok and matt1966 have informed you, this is not going to work.

    All you are doing is creating what is called "Doorway Pages"

    Google will not be happy with you... and you will not rank. No ifs ands or buts about it. It is against Googles Quality Guidelines.

    If you don't believe us....

    Search this exact phrase "doorway pages on google" on Google and read the 1st entry on the serp page.

    Edited to add....
    BTW...
    Counties: As of 2013, the United States has 3,007 counties and 137 county equivalents for a total of 3,144 counties and county equivalents. Cities and towns: According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 19,354 "incorporated places" in the United States.

    Not millions ! If there was and each place had 5000 inhabitants, we would have more citizens than the planet has total population. Just so you know !

    Welcome to SEOChat Heneenserri. I edited your title. 'Heyy!" isn't very helpful. In the future please try and come up with a title that matches your question. Thanks.
