    First of all I hope I'm not calling out a BHW members site, that wasn't my intention. I'm just pointing out that the site in position 5 has scraped content from stackoverflow. The original page is ranking in the top position, but I have noticed before that the other site has been above the stackoverflow page, for some results.

    I haven?t looked into the other site, it could be owned by stackoverflow, I don?t really care, I just thought it was interesting that it was ranking consistently and well with duplicate content.

    Ps. Don?t ask why I was searching for that question. :)

    saw similiar things also... someone copied a SEO / Backlink tutorial and was ranking for about 3 or 4 while the 'real' article was rankin #1.

    :1: Duplicate content is when u duplicate 1 article to populate your own website with content, content syndication is an entirely different story
