    So I have this theory. Its farfetched for sure, but its crossed my mind lately so I wanted to get some insight on it.

    From what I understand about duplicate content penalties in google, if google sees the same content on different websites, the first website it found it on won't get a penalty. If that's true, then if you posted an article from e-zine for example before google indexes it, and yours get indexed first, will you not recieve the penalty? Let me know if its plausible or if I'm missing something.

    Thanks everyone.

    The issue is you need to find a content source which google does not crawl regularly - google crawls Ezine very very frequently.

    And there's where the problem lies - people will only post their content often to high profile websites - which in turn get crawled constantly.

    That removes your window of opportunity significantly, but in theory it's totally possible.

    actually I have one blog on fitness...

    I copy the content...BUT I got stated and include the link of the author...

    I feel , I will not get penalties as I include the author name with his link which bring visitors to his profile ....

    is a win win situation here , as I can promote my blog also helping the author to gain more readers...

    this is how I feel. I doubt the author will email me ask me bring down the articles .

    @devilfish1688 Do you get traffic on this blog of yours? Are the rankings for your site any good on Google? I'm quite curious

    Agree with this guy !! High authority sites and sites popular for google search engine have very high indexing ratio. Even if they steal your article ( if your article is not indexed ) google will index those article on the sites.

    So keep calm and use your own genuine contents

    My little ole site has Moutainview bots on it every second. It's got to where I feel like I'm standing in a house of cards. Also, about 5 ago I was testing a RSS auto poster plugin. Finally got it to post right so I left for junk food. Within 10 min a dude who wrote the worlds best recipe was going to sew me for 10 grand for a recipe how to grill peppers and salt... Good Chocolate!

    Thanks everyone for your feedback, but I'm curious that if by some magical way, the content you stole is indexed before the original source, your chances of being penalized is null. I understand high ranking authority and whatnot.

    Basically, if you wrote an article on "farts blowing up your house", and a high authority site like new york times took your article word by word, who will be penalized. You or the higher authority?

    It won't matter as your site (or at least the related pages) can be de-indexed if the original site/copyright owner files a DMCA with the search engine. A few of these DMCAs against your website can result in your site being completely deindexed.

    i dont think google will penalize the authority site, on the other hand if your website only contains the duplicate content and indexed first before the authority site then there is a chance you may get the penalty if your site is new

    Also I extremely, highly, undoubtedly, most certainly don't think New York times would be stealing content from your measly site lol

    If 5 to 10% of your content is copied before orginal site content got indexed thats find. But if you use it more there is a risk. Better stick with orginal.

    okay here's a thought it might be far fetched but how about you try to use your own content?
