Few weeks ago I wrote a 100% original article on my gaming niche website and submitted it to N4G, a video game news aggregator. It got featured and I was getting tons of traffic for a few days. Today I googled the article title with quotation marks and holy shit...The N4G submission (that links to me) is ranking #1, 2-6 are sites with my title copypasted word for word, all with Read More links to N4G and barely any text. My original article is all the way down at #7, even with the mini link pyramid. Except for #4, that doesn't even open because of a Fatal PHP error. Interestingly enough, the N4G submission is dated June 10, while #2-6 are dated June 9. How the hell can pages dated June 9 use a page dated June 10 as a source? I know you can change the post date on the site, but shouldn't Google's awesome algorithms notice a time paradox? If they don't, then here's a new blackhat method. Just more proof that Google does not have its shit together and you shouldn't put all your eggs in the SEO basket. I've made some screenshots of the SERPS, but decided against posting them in a public thread. If interested, PM me and I'll show you.
