Reprinted Articles

Well, my website contains about 500+ reprinted articles
will google treat that as duplicate contents? coz there are so many other websites that add those articles.

I would hope so (because it is), but probably not.

If your PR is higher than the originals, they may get penalised instead.

i've seem numerous instances of articles being used multiple times on different sites with no obvious penalties ... different sites have different nav links, content at the top, copyright info at the bottom etc. etc., so maybe jut maybe it's enough for google to not see it as duplicate content.

not sure though if there are obvious differences in the rankings for the various articles based on different key phrases

I would be interested to know where these articles come from. Tell me you're not one of these people who has created a website by stealing copy from others.

Brian - there is an enormous amount of free and legally available content, check out public domain information

Talking of multiple copies of content - setup a google news alert for a popular keyword (Britney Spears or Google) and see how the same article populates itself through the internet....

I had a client whose product.com articles were replicated in several locations on their corporate site. This resulted in the product.com listings getting filtered out of Google results - because the corporate site had greater pagerank, and thus took precedence over the "original" site.
