    I mean like just cut and pasting from ezinearticles or wherever, not giving credit, and putting the articles on your own site for content? :D

    I mean like blatantly not giving a shit, fuck copyright, all that other stuff?

    Has it worked for you? Do you get C&D notices? Do you get dupe content penalties?

    I'm not advocating this nor am I going to try it. In fact, 100% of all the content on all my sites is unique. I'm just curious if anyone here doesn't give a shit about any of that and just steals shit?

    I see these packages being passed around that have 1000s of articles about various subjects in them... I assume people are using them and so there are probably 100s of copies of the same article about whatever topic on the web.

    Why on earth would anyone buy a package of 1000 articles? Especially if it's being offered to the masses? Only the first guy to upload them and get cached would benefit from them. The rest of the people would be flagged as dupe content wouldn't they?

    Ever heard of content spinning and offshore hosting?

    I used to do this on lots of my semi auto blogs, and I didn't have any problem, but probably because I used offshore hosting and so forth. But nowadays, with the improvement of copyscape, etc I don't think it's a good idea to do it.

    For your second question, what package are you talking about? There a package that offers spinnable features amd the articles are as good as manually written.

    dupe content ranks.

    if you disagree you haven't tried hard enough.

    I've heard of people using Auto-blogs where they rank higher in the SERP than the original article. I think dupe content may penalize you some, but if you overcome it in other areas its not a big deal, and since creating the content is probably the most time consuming part, it can make sense on smaller blogs.

    Ya I never understood the part where 'webmasters are promoting you because your link is in the resource box'. I mean why a webmaster in his right mind would include that at all? A C&D can't be used to protect your snatched spinned version you put on ezine in the first place.

    For small scale republication (and "small" can actually be very large) companies tend to do nothing because the cost of going after people far outweighs the cost of recovery. Plus, the cost of going after them is enormously greater than the financial losses they suffer by the unauthorized small scale republications.

    That's why Microsoft, for example, spends mucho millions going after commercial counterfeiters in China and Taiwan and does almost nothing to chase people who share a copy of Windows with friends.

    i write articles on articlesbase with backlinks to my blog.. if i write an article in a popular category, for example finance or insurance.. within hours of my article going live, i will start getting pingbacks to my blog from several sources... so other people are stealing my articles and putting them on their blogs (most likley from some sort of autoblog plugin like wprobot). and in 99"% of the cases, they do not include the article source or author bio that you are supposed to use when syndicating an article.. but since i include links in the body of the article, i still get backlinks, so i don't care..

    but yes, i've copy and pasted articles before myself too.. the same thing happens when you use any sort of auto blog plugin.

    i dont think you have to worry about a c&d

    It's been going on since Al Gore invented the Internet. :) The Internet is survival of the fittest in its rawest form. If you're not the predator then you're the prey.

    PLRs are valuable if you know how to use them. If you think you can just post the articles you're sadly mistaken. If you think they're a waste of time you're also sadly mistaken.

    Dupe content is not a myth but you have to look at content the way Google looks at content. What content means to you and what it means to a search engine are entirely different. Take one article that is unique and post it in 5 places. Build links to each from different blogs, forums and feeds. Each article now is different content in the vernacular of the search engine. Each has a different SEO score based on where the links come from, how much traffic it gets and the quality of the on-page and off-page SEO. Even though they are the same words they're not the same content in the eyes of a search engine. This is why a dupe article can topple it's source on Google and this happens all the time. The one on top was graded as the best and original source by Google because of its SEO, not because of some stupid string of words on a page. Computers aren't people.

    Best regards

    I guess I should have put the smiley in front of the sentence so you would have caught the sarcasm.

    The internet is very big that you cannot monitor and chase those copying and pasting your articles. Even if you discover somebody copying your articles to another site, the legal process redress is too long that you would not even bother wasting your time.

    EzineArticles has more than 2 million articles. The number of copies of those articles on other websites without authorization is far higher than that. Those pages are ranking well, even more than EzineArticles itself. If you have this type of articles, you can give credit to the authors. Then treat the articles as if you wrote them yourself, build links to them and properly optimize them as much as possible by even changing titles if possible.

    Also, do not depend on the articles written by other people. Look for other ways of generating your own articles as well. Do this for a main money site that you know that people can easily identify with you. Outsource the articles depending on your budget.

    How can the original author prove that you stole from them instead of them stealing it from you;)?

    If an author sees one of his articles, he would know. For instance, I use a tool for scraping articles from the major article directories and then use a plugin to drip the articles to my wordpress blog. Out of the over 20,000 articles on that blog, only one author has contacted me asking for a link back to his own site. He got to my site through Google and he identified that I was not the real owner. I also did not even argue with him because I knew I was not the owner. I was only profiting from the labor of thousands of authors like him. Of course the number of authors that discover is very small. The only thing is that you should operate under the radar. Treat all those sites differently because any author can discover his writing at anytime.
