To address these concerns, Google's Panda sweep was introduced to down-grade websites that primarily consisted of duplicate content. In other words, if swathes of text had been found elsewhere on the internet, the content with the earliest associated upload date would be considered as original. If, however, the copy attributed the original, it was deemed to be acceptable (I think!).
Clients of The BPc have no cause for concern. We just don't do this. We build quality links to our clients' websites, using acceptable methods, from blogs, social media, articles sites and, where possible, other websites with similar content. We offer a monthly fee programme to keep your website visible.
