Cuz lyrics sites.
just before couple of months ago i started about 50 free hosted blogs with 3 posts that are absolutely same on all those 50 blogs and all blogs are dominating first google pages...
On money site, no problemo.
Incoming links, no bueno!
Although, if you have dupe content on the same site, it's also no bueno.
Noindex, follow your archives, tags, categories, and authors pages so that you don't have mass dupe floatin around your site.
Its not only lyrics niche but the Quotes niche which you can't really make unique. Google and Mr Matt knows that well and usually don't apply duplicate penalty on such sites as they are classified under special case. But yes there should be at least some part of your site unique, not just copy pasted as it is. Another thing is the "Odd one out" rule.
If you are the only guy with a site having full copied content then google will catch you but if you and your other 10 competitors are doing the same and copying content left and right then you will be fine.
You can have a look at this video which is "somewhat" relevant.
some say around 50% unique content is enough. Most of the time google doesn't care too much. But it does affect at times, when you are targeting high competition keywords with usage of heavy dupe content in money sites.
Cuz just because the supplemental index isn't obvious anymore doesn't mean it's not there.
Also cuz in order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some replies very similar to the 4 already displayed.
You'd find it is much tougher to rank any keyword worth ranking with dupe content.
Sure maybe with lyric sites, quote sites etc dupe content may cut the mustard, but I don't think too many people are SEOing that stuff or banking $$$ from those niches.
Now that's interesting. You're saying that if a site is classified as a "lyric" site or "quote" site is is exempt from dupe content penalties?
I think that's true since I have seen many sites blatantly copying stuff and still ranking even after the updates in those niches and similar niches just because its other counterparts are ranking in top 10 with same tactic.
Think about it, if Google were to penalize every lyric or quote site then there would be no Top 10 search for it . But ofcourse add some 25% of unique stuff on your site just to give google a hint that you are not being lazy.
