    I'm in a pretty competitive niche and have been actively analyzing my competitors sites. One site has over 15,000 pages of articles but most of them are copied from Wikipedia. Another has almost 20,000 pages of press releases. Aren't these "low value" pages due to their duplicate nature? How does having this type of content help SEO?
