    Duplicate Content Question


    I am doing a website for a dentist and have included a feature whereas he can write aticles on a variety of dental topics. Obviosously he will not go out as "lift" material from other sites but rather write unique dental content. My question pertains to his making the articles available on other dentistry websites. Let us say he writes an article about Dental Implants and places the article on his website as well as on several others that feature dental news and information. My question is when a search engine evaluates duplicate content how does it determine who is the original author of the content and does not penalize them?

    The best way to go, would be to first publish the articles on his own website first, then after a week or so, give it to the others.

    Your best bet however is to make sure there is a link back to the original article/website in the articles that are posted on the other sites.

    This way he would also gather some backlinks...

    Somehow Google knows :-)
