    Hi BHW,

    I just ordered some old books, to use the content for a new project.
    Then I realised that "google books" has already scanned them via ocr.

    Now I wonder if google cross checks "web content" against their "google books" data to determine if the content of my site is really unique?

    will google find out?
    what do you think, is it still a good idea?

    Cheers

    Always think ahead, eventually they will consider it dupe content, they may not be doing it now but in the future they will. It's a good idea though.

    Check out my post on unique content also

    That's a great idea to get content... Maybe next time you should try getting articles from old magazines...

    if you get the content and have to type it anyway...put it in TBS and use the spun version...or just rephrase each paragraph...that will give you some really good unique content

    Just because the books are out of copyrighted does not mean Google cannot see that it isn't original content. There is a large project going on to digitize all books (yes, ALL) with Google Books, recaptcha, etc.

    yeah, that's what I was wondering about. If I can search content within "Google Books" on the web, it's is likely that G will know my site isn't unique.
    But I don't know that for sure. Maybe the two services are not connected yet...
    shit I spend 32? on this book on found it on Google Books now, what a bummer! That was so naive of me... G are bastarts! What gives them the right to incorporate EVERYTHING... gimmy a break !!!
    I have to start looking for magazines and stuff....

    I think it's sane to rather rewrite the content as the time taken would be pretty less. Additionally you can always opt for spun content. However, if you are looking for quality, then instead of using Google Books content straight away, which accordingly to my knowledge is scanned by Google and it comes in copyscape check, rewrite the content from the scratch.

    OK, I researched some more and found interesting info on the subject now:

    I read that authors who have their work on "Google Books" got penalised for dupe contend. Their own website got hit by the panda for having their original material on it !!! can u believe that?
    Google ranks the search results for the "Google Books" on top and penalises the website of the original author...

    So this means "old books" are a NO GO if they are on "Google Books".

    I would post the link here but I can't post urls...
