    I am talking about the quote site brainy quotes. It rank number one in almost every keyword. There is no unique content. All the quotes are available all over the Internet.


    Yet Google doesn't penalize it. What I found out is that it has massive backlinks.


    Can someone enlighten me.

    not just that all quotes aren't unique there, but Abraham Lincoln said once, that "The problem with quotes found on the internet is that they are often not true."

    This dumb question was asked about this site before, and like I said, it's over a decade old (2001). These sites were around in the beginning. Now the muppets come around and herp derp to how they are doing the same thing and it isn't working. Yeah, cuz you and the other million herp derpers think that you can suddenly rank by doing the same thing that's been done a billion times over.

    I'm talking about there being 10 spots on the first page and muppets complaining that a site that's been around since 2001 is ranking ahead of some muppet's attempt at doing the same thing for the millionth time and not ranking above the other 1000s of other sites that have already done it.

    Weird, i haven't seen OP saying that he did or wanted to do the same thing.... Guess you and me read different things in the same content

    I've been in the game long enough. I know where the OP is going with it. It's the same song and dance as the rest of them.

    As "cynical" as that sounds, I'm going to have to agree with archon10 on that one. Usually, whenever someone starts doing enough research to notice that a site is ranking for almost every keyword in a niche, that means that they are either interested in creating a site in the same niche and wanted to know the "secret to ranking like that site", or it was something they happened to notice and wanted more information on (and if the method is easy, they would try to rank for the same keywords).
