So lets say a website does a huge review on lets say (making this up now) "Magic Shoes" that are supposedly more comfortable than any other shoe... now, what if there is already a site with a "review" on it and you just copy wholesale the entire page of say a thousand word review?
Before 2008 you were fine doing this (from what I read) but after 2008, forget it, Google will actually deliberately make sure your page ranks LOW.
So to get around this I read some people are translating the text into another language, then back into English, to make the words seem different... this to me is just really lazy for a start and all you will end up with by doing this is a web page full of complete gibberish.
So, I approached it differently - if you have a good knowledge of English and meanings, its really easy to do.
I am promoting the Tesla Secret book, and of course found a "review" (the affiliate's own what else lol) here are the first 2 paragraphs of the page:
The first time I heard about the Tesla Secret web site at <removed> I was really intrigued by what it has to offer. Nikola Tesla has been one of my all time favorite scientist of the early 19th century. He was a real genius of his time and his invention actually helped usher the Second Industrial Revolution. |
However, some people believe there is a conspiracy by the government to keep some of Tesla’s invention away from the public. They believe large electricity companies are suppressing Tesla’s invention which is capable of generating free electricity via the Tesla generator.
When I originally saw the above Tesla Secret book a few weeks ago, I was curious about the whole thing. Nikola Tesla is almost like a hero to the masses, trying to find a way to create free energy. |
Considering that he was around more than 100 years ago, he was vastly ahead of his time. Not just a genius but a genius that used his mind in the right way. It was Tesla's invention that allowed the 2nd Industrial Revolution.
Some people think there is a cover up by the government to keep Tesla’s secrets and lesser known inventions out of the public's hands. They think big electric companies are suppressing Tesla’s invention, which is able to generate free electric through the Tesla generator.
Is doing this enough to "fool" Google?
Most will say "buy the ebook and write a review that really is all your own work" but I can't, I haven't even got that much money to my name right now let alone have it spare to spend on stuff like this. :p
I just wondered if there is a better way to get around the Google thing where they penalize for pages that mimic other pages.
Strictly speaking, I am doing exactly that, but is it different enough to make Google think it is good content as opposed to copying? Come on, there is only so much Google can do, they can only be so strict before they would be taking down perfectly legitimate pages.
