    Ok, what is link rel=canonical and how exactly can I use it?

    If I copy pasted some ads per say on my website from CL, lets say in the beginning to populate my site(I dont even have one yet), aside the legal issue, will Google instantly pick up on it and de-index me?

    Also, I am now aware that Meta Keywords and Description hardly affect search results.

    Just how could I for example, have google return a search result for "New York cars" to my site?

    What does it take to strengthen the websites ability to be at the top results?

    If you can serve enough unique content alongside the scraped content, you will probably be indexed, right up until google receives a dmca notice (if they do). CL is pretty famous for hating scrapers.

    Once I launch my website, I am planning to getting some top notch SEO experts, perhaps hiring a few. Should I hire one or is more better? All whitehat btw.

    They have started to receive them and act on them. I've seen it in some of my own searches.

    LOL that is only on blogspot and Google-related products. Not LTDs...

    There's no way Google can get a DMCA notice for a LTD.

    You could find the truth a search away instead of making assumptions in this forum.

    Search "dmca notices google search" and see for yourself.

    They aren't assumptions. Google cannot be responsible for what it indexes. Google only indexes sites.

    If you want to take down a site you send your dmca letter to the owner of the site or directly at the hosting provider. You dont understand whats going on.

    They take it upon themselves anyway.

    "Google regularly receives requests from copyright holders..."

    [h=2]How many of these requests did you comply with?[/h] We removed 97% of search results specified in requests that we received between July and December 2011.


    [h=2]How quickly do you remove search results after a request is made?[/h] We remove search results that link to infringing content in Search when it is brought to our attention, and we do it quickly. As of December 2012, our average processing time across all removal requests submitted via our web form for Search is approximately 6 hours. However, many different factors can influence the processing time for a particular removal request, including the method of delivery, language, and completeness of the information submitted.


    [h=2]What is the DMCA?[/h] The DMCA or Digital Millennium Copyright Act is a U.S. law that provides qualifying online service providers like Google with a safe harbor from monetary liability for copyright infringement claims. One of the requirements of these safe harbor provisions is that the service provider remove or disable access to allegedly infringing material upon receiving a request that meets certain requirements. In responding to copyright removal requests, Google complies with the requirements of the DMCA.

    [h=2]Do you only comply with the DMCA? What about other copyright laws?[/h] It is our policy to respond to clear and specific notices of alleged copyright infringement. The form of notice we specify in our web form is consistent with the DMCA and provides a simple and efficient mechanism for copyright owners from countries around the world.
    [h=2]What is Chilling Effects?[/h] Chilling Effects is a joint project of several law school clinics, including at Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley, and the George Washington School of Law, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Chilling Effects posts and analyses copyright removal requests (among other types of content removal requests) from a number of participating companies on its website. We link in our search results to the requests published by Chilling Effects in place of removed content when we are able to do so legally.

    ...

    Or you could just look around BHW and find threads starting with "So I just got a "Notice of DMCA removal from Google Search" because apparently my website was guilty of copyright infringement"

    Obviously a copyright holder can pursue every avenue they wish: the hosting provider, the search engines, even the domain name (with federal help) and the court system in some cases.
