Duplicate Content Penalty? Let’s Take a Look — 2 Comments

  1. Great analysis. I have seen the video from that Google discussion when it appeared in 2016, so it was obvious that there was no duplicate content penalty, but Mueller said it would be ranked below the original. This what you did shows even more, a) that a thief can do better than the original author, b) that Google is not consistent with what they claim. I just checked, the duplicate text is number 1 in Google, and the original is number 4.

    One objection. This is perhaps still an initial ranking, based only on the authority of the two sites. The final ranking will come later when they assess both articles thoroughly. So the ranking could reverse.
