Google doesn't care about content anymore?

I've seen this - and done similar myself. (Not exactly this but similar)
Despite what the White Hat evangelists say you can earn big dollars today with websites like this. And there is nothing "short term" about it. There are website's in one of my niches that have ranked since 2007/8 with content and links like this.

That can be said about pretty much every other company though. I also believe Google is actually somewhat saner than Facebook.

how old is the site? if it is new then don't worry just yet - just about any site can rank well for a few weeks while it is 'fresh content' in the eyes of the bot ............. then oblivion if it is crappy

Google even shows same website multiple times within first 4-5 pages. There are serious issues with their algorithm.

I guess they just patch up the algorithm but no one clearly understands it.

Just came across something and I can't really believe it. There is one website in my niche, which start to rank really well for many different keywords, but this whole website contains of basically ONE article, but the author is just copying the same article over and over again and changes the keywords only.

...and by the way...this website is in German, but the content is translated with a translator. It is unreadable, it doesn't make any sense. It is just random words next to each other without any context.

How can Google rank this kinda website? Why would they even consider this "content" relevant?

I thought duplicate content hurts the rankings, but how comes he can rank with EXACTLY the same content over and over again, but just changing the keywords?!

In moments like this SEO feels like a fucking joke. This guy is literally putting no effort, but copy pasting his rubbish content every single day, but he starts to outrank websites, which are written in proper german and provide great content.

EDIT: Just checked his backlink profile. ALL his backlinks are from websites linking to his IMAGES. All the websites have the same structure. Most of them are error 404. Wtf.

Sorry noob here on site , what you mean his backlinks are from websites linking to his imagaes? You mean he post images in other sites and include his site link u mean?

Probably those sites have used Google Translate services to translate articles. This is also Google service, so why to bother with its content. I also think that there might be an issue with English websites, but probably hard to follow in other languages

Thanks for generating awareness on this.

It is interesting you bring up this topic, because in the past, I read somewhere that search engines tend to rank websites with the "same repeated content" lower, but of course I could be very wrong as I am new to this.

OP I am not surprised by your findings , just recently my fellow nerds and I were testing the dup licate con tent filter and found that there was not a G warning of duplicated results at 60% , so I have to venture to guess in a foreign SERP it has to be the same. But thank you for the test idea :)
