    I had a site a while back that was disabled from adsense for not enough unique content.

    I keep seeing lyrics websites with Adsense all over them, how do these sites get away with it?

    Also how do you rank a lyric website with so much duplicate?

    I would assume lyric websites are allowed because those are a niche. They're in the music niche and im sure google has some loopholes in that area. Iv seen adsense ads related to lyrics on actual music sites.

    Go for it. Take action, man. The only way to fail is if you don't try to succeed.

    There is a manual review doc floating around in here. Well anyway, I read it and duplicate content is ok as long as it makes sense. For example, a site about Lyrics makes perfect sense because there is not reason to change those. The doc actually mentioned lyrics sites as an example of duplicate content being ok.

    Anyway other niches that may have similar attributes- Book Quotes, Famous Quotes, Movie Quotes, Poems, Bible verses etc..

    I dont give very much weight to the whole dup-content thing. Although I never had adsence disabled on a site either.

    I have a blog thats about 10yrs old and no matter if I scrape the content or write it myself(rarely) it makes it to the first page of G in less then 20 min. It's a news related niche if that matters. Those stories get re-printed so many times it's nuts... So we may get a pass from G as well. The fact that it's a WP prob helps, by pinging G when we post. We also always give (Source:) links to the original story... I read that it helps keep G off your back.

    my 5 on it..

    I do the same a lot lately if I get it from somewhere I have been leaving a link to the original, at least I cant get cited for copyrights and that stuff.
