    Is it possible to copy a clickbank vendor page and rank this 100% copied website to the top?

    Depends whether you're copying just the design, or content as well. Copied content will score you a duplicate content penalty, and you won't rank at all. However, a copied layout/design will be just fine.

    it's not possible unless you have a higher authority than the other person. duplicate content, as tony_d already said won't bring you to the top.

    Its not possible to rank duplicate content over orignal content.

    It's better to spin the content in a readable form and then posting on your site. It's possible to rank with duplicate content, but your site won't stay on top for long. :)

    Its not possible to rank a website with duplicate content, but you rank that content on authority websites specially on well reputed forums.

    I have to disagree with you guys and will cover my words with proof.

    First of all, check this google search for this keyword and take a look at website ranked #1 and website ranked #7:

    https://www.google.co.in/#q=how+to+earn+money+online+without+investment+in+india

    website ranked #1 is: http://www.fastrupee.com/
    website ranked #7 is: http://www.moneygenerator.info/

    Both sites ranked on google page 1 for that one keyword, same owner who ranked them that high. 100% duplicated content, but both sites on page 1, weird huh?

    Google Panda and all other duplicate content penalties are very questionable. It is actually not fair from my point of view.


    If you guys think this is big mistake by Google, feel free to report both sites as I did.

    He might be lucky or must have found a loophole that makes his site go high using duplicate content.

    What about duplicated content? Almost 100% same websites?

    Yes it is possible, however this depends on how competitive the keyword is and how much authority the website you copied the content from has. I ranked a web 2.0 #1 for a low competition keyword. Better test this yourself, as people have mixed feelings about this.

    It depends who do you want to copy. With better links it's possible, of course. :)

    Consider the following situation:

    You have a site A which can be considered as original site. Someone creates exact copy of it - site B. Now for some reason you give up developing site A on original domain and move it on new domain. We have site C now. Active sites are B and C. Which one Google will consider as original now?

    It's not always easy do determine which site is original and links can play a big role...

    If you have established and authority site than you will rank easily.

    And if you are planning to brand new site and copying contents from
    existent website than forget it ... its not gonna work NOW.

    What did you do ? Reported those sites to Google? Do you know where you are? This is BlackHatWorld you should not report fellow blackhatters - thats allmost like doing negative SEO. You ruin someones business!

    Beat them dont report them! WTF!

    Edit:
    Just checked those sites and its not even close 100% duplicate content. There is something same, but it isn't duplicate in G spiders eyes.

    duplicate content set apart, what did you get from reporting those sites to Google?

    Nothing but the satisfaction. Hypothetically question for this situation: Would it be fair if I copy-paste his content and outrank him with his own content?

    I think you can rank it yes, but its chances of being hit would be higher.
