TripAdvisor flooding Google with duplicate content

Just been checking through a few statistics programs for a few of our sites, and came across this results page on Google.

https://www.google.com/search?sa=t&r...3ZaRlchaqXztyg

The first 5 results are all from Tripadvisor !! 100% duplicate content - basically, its the same site running on a number of domains !! I thought Google were supposed to be stamping out on this type of thing !! Wasn't it always "offer original content and your site will be rewarded" ?? Looks like those days are long gone !!

Rant over !!

Thanks

Alex

It isn't 100% the same, maybe that's why.

Re: TripAdvisor flooding Google with duplicate content

Panda explains. And it is the reason why exact match domains are no longer so much valuable as they used to be.

That pages are on "Tripadvisor.com" and its .cctlds. The host domains where they are have a huge Trust/Authority on Google's eyes, and that will make them pop on top of every little website you put up for long tails. (Even exact match)

As you know, the trend was not new, but lately become clear as water: Google [do-no-evil] crashes the little guy and kisses big sharks asses.

Its much more easy to rank, no hassles with low quality spam, and brings much more money home.

What ever happened to Google preaching "Unique Quality Content" all the time ?? And Jose, I agree with you that it's much easier to get ranked with spam and poor quality PLR based sites then spend hours and hours writing your own content.
