Participating in a discussion on a forum I answered a question from a user who has had a fall from 4000 unique visits per day to 40. Among the various answers someone pointed out that the site content is only copied and pasted from other websites and therefore Google may have penalized. This statement got me thinking, the discourse of the copied content has always fascinated me and I think it was for so long a bad headache for Google. With the new algorithm and thanks to PING blogs, Google is now able to index content almost upon its publication, it’s almost like a certificate of ownership of the content, write, and publish it immediately to ping Google which the indexes and notes that you own. Unfortunately after a while some news aggregator publish your post and even if Google knows that it’s yours, that’s the aggregator goes out before you on search engines with your content
How Can This Happen?
My idea is that Google does not care who the highly owner of the content posted, interested to go to Google first sites that they consider most reliable, and especially those with more links and more links “good”.
So Is It Not Penalized?
In my opinion NO, believe that Google lost time and resources to penalize mainly because picopallino care around content is a bit far-fetched, the Italian sites that make more visits are aggregators and certainly the only original content that is the page CONTACT U.S. . Google certainly has an algorithm to choose one site over another even if the same content, there are many other important factors, so why penalize those who have the same content to others? Should be penalized for all the sites of aphorisms, jokes, stories, FUNNY VIDEOS and stuff like that because they all have the same contents.
When There Is A Penalty?
If and only if you do what Google tells you explicitly not to do because it feels against his policies, the rest are just guesses based on nothing. The web is free you can do whatever you want, even copy, it does so in any field or wrong? All plagiarized, at school, between companies, it is human … even though I think that’s ridiculous and immoral … but … as they did at school the teacher always believes that he copied the not so good (in the case of the less popular web at the expense of little blog)
So why the site mentioned in the forum has been a collapse of hits?
When you have a website online you should always know why you have to show us the guided analytics. 4000 visits can be a peace of mind if they come from long tail, i.e, by so many keywords that make a few visits each. However, if the 4000 visits come from the 2 or 3 keywords positioning the website is highly unstable and unreliable. If it falls a keyword the website of the reductions could be crazy like this one.
It often happens that when things go wrong you think penalized by Google, you always try to blame it on something that is strange or out of the reach of our actions. This is a serious mistake if a website goes down instead of growing it is always and only our fault. And ‘our fault, even when Google penalizes us, that’s why the work of seo must be to a manic and must use all instruments of control available, should always know how and why of anything happening to our website … otherwise they are the surprises and it becomes difficult to trace the source of the problem.
