I want to clone a site of mine with a different domain. Will original site be penalized?

    I want to copy one of my sites and use all of the articles on another site. I am not worried about the new site ranking as it is going to be mostly for ppc/media buy. The question is will the site i copied from get a penalty?

    Nah the site you copy from should be ok but the new site probably won't rank. Also get google authorship on the original site before you do this to be on the safe side.

    You will not be able to rank the new site in search engines because of duplicate content
