Ok so we all think we know that ranking a site made up of Duplicate Content is hard. (Reference: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...0259-guide-duplicate-content-myths-facts.html ) But I thought: If the site that Steals content gets punished, couldn't it be that the site that originally posted the content gets a benefit / ranking boost? So Google sees: New content on site A.(Has to be indexed) and then a bit later, Google sees parts of that content all over the web. This would HAVE to tell Google, that the original site is an authority site on that subject, since everyone is copying from it. Does that make sense? I think so. So I launched a new site with 100% unique content the other day and haven't done much with it yet it terms of Backlinks. If anyone is interested, we could try blasting parts of my content around the web and see what happens. Let me know if you have any tools to help and if you are interested.
