How you make content look original for google
When the content is scraped?

Msg#: 4486250 posted 8:51 am on Aug 19, 2012 (gmt 0)

Recently, one of our client was facing problem of duplicate content. Though they were originators of content but even due to tagging and date stamp, the scrapper content was seen while their content was de-indexed.

Matt Cuts Said "They try to show the content they think came first or has the most value"

Though this still not hold true in case of our client.

In the hindsight of this, How you make your content look original for google.

File a DMCA with Google.

Yep ...that's already done

Albeit, the main issue is how to make google consider original content effectively.

Gotta point out that the thread title leads one to expect an entirely different question: "How do I make my scraped (not, ahem, scrapped) content look original?"

Sounds as if your competitor has figured out the answer.

Everyone is free to think as they wish and subjectivity is endless...but the main query still remains un-responded :P

Are you (or your client) using authorship markup to claim ownership of the content? I've read conflicting opinions on whether or not this will ensure you're credited as the original author by Google, but it seems like a significant advantage if you publish content first and claim it with Google authorship.

(*gasp* An advantage to the existence of Google+?!)

Your client should fill their copy with references to themselves, their brand name and their unique points. Full scrapers will have to take it out, or else their content will look like nonsense. I know this won't do much for Google's decision about which is the original, but you can't rule out the algo getting smarter, and it also increases the % of difference between your client's version and the copy.

You want to do everything you can to make sure their content is indexed first. Try submitting it to social bookmarking sites. I know that most social bookmarking sites won't drive a lot of traffic but at least it will stimulate some activity around the original post and hopefully get the crawlers first. Also make sure you're promoting it via social media site like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn if applicable. Have your client's share it on Google+ and +1 it as well. The more activity you can get around their content as soon as it goes live the better.
