    Just wonder if there are any reason behind of duplicate content ranking? Especially for movie, live streaming keywords, all of them are copied but they got ranked.

    How does that happen?

    I'm no expert, but I'd imagine it's to do with the content that supports the movie, live streaming (or whatever duplicate content). I.e. review sites by genre, top ten countdowns/best movies of 2017, movie critique sites. someone more qualified may perhaps support or refute this, but It's a good question nonetheless.

    The words “duplicate content penalty” , "duplicate content get rank or not" strike fear in the hearts of marketers. People with no SEO experience use this phrase all the time. Most have never read Google’s guidelines on duplicate content.

    Myth #1: Non-Original Content on Your Site Will Hurt Your Rankings across Your Domain
    Myth #2: Scrapers Will Hurt Your Site

    Copied content can often be penalised algorithmically or manually. Duplicate content is not penalised, but this is often not an optimal set-up for pages, either.

    It happens because there's something wrong at Google and RankBrain.

    They broke something and their index went stale the past 60 days, yesterday I searched for something and got a 404, something I hadn't seen in a while on Google.

    This probably means that there'll be a big googlebot crawl soon and likely a dance after that.

    That's great info friends....

    I've found lots of content regarding movies and sports news. Maximum use duplicate content and get ranked so easily. I've no idea how they did that.

    To be honest, larger websites and authority sources can get away with this easily.
