I wanted to get everyone's opinion on this. What do you all think about back links that are coming from duplicate content? For example you get a pack of PLR articles, and submit them to article directories for some back links. Only problem is about 50 other people had the articles and did the same thing. Would Google penalize you for this? Would they not penalize you, but not give you credit for the backlink? Would you get some credit for the backlink but not full? Or would you get just as much credit as any other original article?
What do you think?
I've heard that Google just will not index any duplicate content, which I guess would give you no credit for the back link. Supposedly the first site to have the content up gets indexed and credit, but any after that no indexing.
I would love to hear opinions on this, or any other information you may have!
