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.
