How do these sites are not penalised for copied content?While going through the internet for researching for one of my articles for a third party client, I observed a unique phenomenon. When I did input my search query, I got a few results in the search results.
What astonished me was the fact 2 or 3 of them (maybe more in further pages of search results), had the same content. They were identical in all respects. A sort of word to word similarity was seen.
Don't these sites attract penalty from Google for copied content? Interestingly they appeared on the first page of search results.
