    i started a thread for a while ago, it is called "Need to submit articles to gain 100k backlinks, how do i do it fast?"
    i got some good answers but it was not enough so i went to google and typed in how to gain 100k backlinks with only articles etc, and my thread showed up but in a different blackhat forum and a under a different member. That member is not me!! but it has 100% my original post posted.

    why is this happening are all the forum trying to keep up with being updated so that they gain they activity and rank on google by copy members post etc?

    if so this is really bad.

    For members.

    or is it competing websites that steal from bhw members their posts, to use it for some blackhat seo, so that they rank for same terms as their competitors.

    i really need an answer.

    Yes it counts as duplicated, but as you managed to find them on Google this means that the BIG G is not banning them :D
    So this is working pretty good for them, beside this, they are even banking from this method :D
    And I think that after they reach a specific total visit per month, and a specific real members, they sell their forum to someone that wants to manage it.

    P.s
    I found that in some times, they are ranking even better then the original forum where this post was made first :D

    Duplicate content penalty only applies to content based on one site. If you had multiple copies of the same content either intentional or purely by accident, then you might get some issues from google. Syndicated content is a different story; while theoretically only the original first indexed source should get credit for the content and thus be ranked for it, in actuallity, that's total B.S. as your own search just demonstrated and countless other examples will point out. Just submit an article to 100 directories, and same with Wikis.... what do you get? Yes, dozens of entries of the exact same content all over the SERPs. Make of that what you will :)

    As to the question of why those forums would do this? Well traffic and clicks.... just like everything else.

    this shit always gets me angry, i even had an issue with a forum copying my blog posts, including BHW posts and it's ranking first page in every google search with people's keyword.

    I have tried contacting Big G, but they are not a bit worried about it, the forum name is; naijafinder.com and i hope something is done really fast by google, or else, every one, including me, will be messing with their search too.

    Google team needs a better and great team that looks into spam!
