    So I was thinking about the value of original content, backlinks and increasing the page rank and search engine results of my site which is in the travel industry. My site is an aggregator of content with little original content right now. I'm told this is a no no for google and my site will be slammed. I believe this is true....

    But then I search Porn in google. All the main porn sites come up of course. All with PR of 4, 5 or 6. NONE have original content. They are all aggregators of rehashed porn. Same videos and titles that just gets spread around. Not unlike my travel content, just with nicer tits.

    So my question is: Shouldn't original, well written content about the porn industry from the top newspapers and news-media sites with wicked high PR (a ton of this is there), be coming up first in the search results? Just wondering.

    9gag is doing fantastic and there's pretty much no original content there. They are mostly relying on Social Media, but still, they are even using AdSense. I guess rules are for "small fish"...

    Depends on the type of content.

    For example unoriginal written content is much worse than unoriginal video content. Video's get shared naturally. Whole articles however, not so much.

    There are a lot of sites using rehashed content that rank well. It's all a matter of how it's rehashed. I'm sure a lot of those porn vids you are seeing have different meta tags, titles, etc. Keep in mind, the bots can't necessarily video videos, it's the meta data that sets it apart.
