Building Links with Duplicate Content

Today we will look at another technique or tactic that never really worked at all. This is regarding building links with duplicate content. Google can easily figure out when a piece of content is copied or not or if you submit many articles or pieces of content it can or will simply ignore it if the work is all copied. Years back this might have been the way to capture a link from a site with a higher page rank that accepts to post your duplicate content but today it's just a way to getting your site penalized. Google is very intelligent and it understands that spammers will simply try to use this technique in order to manipulate  your rankings and shall we tell you what, it never works.

Another root of this tactic was to simply spin an article by having it run through an algorithm that creates automated variations of it. This created very low quality articles that were no longer exact copies. Basically one can easily tell the difference in the articles by just reading a few words in it as the grammar is totally out of context. If they think Google or other search engines can be fooled by such techniques then you're wrong as Google can quite easily tell the different between written content by a human or by an algorithm.

Now you all will be asking what is the alternative to all this and is there a way to get multiple links from a single piece of content? Well its simple, the best way to do it is write unique fresh content and post it somewhere to attract natural links as a result. It does not make sense in creating content then submitting it whereby you only get a single link back to your site. This is definitely not the way Google intended to count the links and is not the best method to grow your link profile either.
