    I was wondering, i know google is cracking down on duplicate content with the latest farmers update. I know if I just have a crappy auto blog I can be affected but what if I add Web 2.0 sites and just change the title and leave the content the same as my website article. I know the web 2.0 probably won't get indexed but it should still be good for link juice right? I don't think they can or will look at duplicate web 2.0's as negative because lots of places syndicate articles. Does anyone know if I would still get the link juice from these or should I really spin the web 2.0's really well to help out?

    No, not if they don't get indexed.

    It's a bad idea to dupe your own content like that. If you're going to do straight scrapes with no spinning etc then at least use different articles. Also, since the articles are on web 2.0 hosts with authority / trust etc, you could potentially devalue the impact of that same article on your own non-authority domain. You could end up ranking the web 2.0 article higher than the article on your own domain.

    And like dfrancon said, the page has to be indexed for there to be any backlink effect. That's why people put so much effort into getting their backlinks indexed eg. people pinging their shitty profile backlinks.
