    Hey All,

    I want to know Why big Download websites rank well in search engine although the Google updates hit many small similar websites.

    Download pages on these websites have thin, duplicated, or no content, and many ads units, but it's still working well and keep ranking. No unique content in those pages.

    Take a look at websites such as: sammobile[dot]com/firmwares and samsung-updates[dot]com

    I know they have a lot of backlinks, but I'm talking about the content. I need to know the reason because I had a website in the same niche but Google updates killed my ranking. I thought that Google is making these updates for small websites only.

    Thank You.

    They are not breaking copyright laws for personal profit combined with fraud. Not exactly a rocket science to figure out, why hacks/cracks and similar "rip off" sites are being hit as a priority.

    I know my friend, I'm not talking about breaking copyrights or these Hacks/Cracks download websites. I had a website similar to Sammobile and Samsung-updates, and this kind of download is official from Samsung and has no copyrights, The problem was the duplicated content or no enough value. This problem also in Sammobile and Samsung-updates, but they are still ranking without a problem, So I need to know the reason. Is there any other SEO factors for Download websites or Download pages? Is the CMS will make any difference to Google?
    How to avoid duplicated content although I wrote the Firmware details and short review as an intro, and all posts are same in this form.

    Really I didn't find any answers till this moment and I hope to find it here.

    Maybe the age of the site and metrics matters. Google likes aged site contents. Check the website history of your competitors and find what the difference from yours.

    Sure they are older than me, and they have many high-quality backlinks which I don't have.

    From your confirmation, I think this is the exact reason for it. :)

    So, unique content isn't useful in my matter. Am I right?

    Nope. Unique content is always worth than the duplicate content. And it will long last in the SERP page. I think that duplicate content link will disappear (deindexed) within few days.

    You are right about duplicated content even it is not a duplicated always.

    May I ask you about your suggestions? My website about Samsung Firmware Download, Every post is same, so the changes only about the Firmware details such as (Phone Model, Model name, PDA, Country,....etc), so it's so hard to write a unique content for every firmware because I can post a 10 or 20 or much more firmware posts per day and so on. So, If you have any suggestion please about how to avoid this duplicated matter, I will appreciate your help.

    Thank You..
