My site is ranked on 2nd or 3rd page, assuming that on the first place, except first 3 results, everything else is pretty much copied/duplicated content, aka auto blogs etc. How can I surpass those sites, with ease.. only time will tell or.. ? of course for some keywords I'm ranking really good,but for most my site is not even close where it should be. On a side note, I hardly build any backlinks. I do have a lot of content. On some sites I have 30 posts, on other I have 10-15 but writing more. My sites are 2 weeks to 3 months old. Haha. I know it's because of authority. But STILL, duplicated content should be away from the first page, whenever something unique on the topic comes in.
