Hi, I own a company that has recently been smeared by a highly search engine friendly consumer complaint website. I used to work in SEO, but not for awhile and not for long. During that time period I learned that if duplicate URLs form my site were indexed that both/every one of those pages would perform worse in SERPs for relevant keywords. I took that experience and used it to sign up for the site and create a duplicate post (both duplicate title & article text), but since then the original has gone up in SERPs while the other has been creeping up. My current strategy to avoid paying the site to remove the so called rip off is to submit an identical report at least once a week so that over time Google will penalize all version of the report on that site for duplicate content. Will that work or have I been out of the game for too long and Google has adjusted to only penalize duplicates instead of the original even if the same site appears to be spamming the same content?
