    Hi guys,

    I'm interested in copying articles from other web-sites, but I am not sure if the thing I have planned will work.
    What I mean is: if I copy an article from someone's site, add it to my site and flag this particular article with the tag "noindex", will it prevent me from Google's penalty?
    The only reason I need it is to fill my new web-site with content in short terms and not actually in content being featured in Google's SERP.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    its ok to do so with noindex, there's another way, use data puller or screenshot the content and use it as image, hope that help

    I still don't know for sure but many of the experienced guys here say that google will not penalize you for duplicate content. Your articles will just rank lower than the originals.

    You could use part of the copied content and link to the original source. I believe its safer this way.

    Use the rel canonical tag OP, this tag is there for exactly what you are wanting to do. Google won't penalize you and you can index the content as well but your page will never rank for the keywords. If you don't know what this tag does, the rel=canonical tag tells the search engines where the "original" article is and that the page with the tag is just aggregating that content.

    Canonical tags are reciprocal, that is if I want to use somebody's content and to insert the rel canonical tag, it should also be included in the source site, referring to mine.

    Listen, if you don't particularly care for search engine traffic, and only care to drive traffic from social media, forums, blog commenting, etc, then you can steal away basically.

    The only problem with stealing content is if you care for search engine traffic.

    Although, if the original author catches you and sees his/her content on your site, then they can report you to your hosting/domain provider, your adsense or whatever ads you have on your site provider, etc.

    That's why it is showing the Cache of the other website. Wait for some days, it will start showing your website in the cache.

    Wrong.

    It's not reciprocal at all. Rel=Canonical is to specify the original source of content, the original does not have to rel=canonical towards the copy. It's used on ecommerce sites to specify original product pages, for example if your site has variations of products (red, orange and blue shoe) but all the variations use the same content, just different images then you will rel=canonical to the original page you want to rank.

    Rel=canonical is also allowed between external websites, i.e, if exampleone.com is using exampletwo.com's content, then exampleone.com will place a rel=canonical tag that points to exampletwo.com's page where the content first appeared, however exampletwo.com doesn't need to modify anything to make the rel=canonical tag active.
