Reseller!..Good morning to you!
Let me tell you a story about my clients site..
I wrote many articles about safety and usage of his product line..
I have a secondary index about those articles..all original content and some have been picked up across the web and reprinted. Fine. no problem. They give full credit and a link back (the link back in most cases). All the articles carry our copyright in them and in the meta tags.
On some of them, I just did a description of them with a ...read more
and on some of them I used the first 3-4 sentences and a ...read more
Well, on all the ones I used direct content- the 3-4 sentences- have ALL gone dup content and relegated to supplemnetal listings in all the test dc's and varies back and forth on my google.com
So..I think this means that they have turned the dup content filter up so much that it is kicking even 3-4 sentence repition into supplemental.
The bad thing about this is that the articles are very pertinent and I get many hits on other se's from them.
If google ever gets it together and eliminates the supplementals- all those articles will go down the drain.
But it is proof because the articles I used just the description of in the sub index are not supplemental.
