Thanks for your advise.
a)Pages with more than 200 words are rare on my site, but it works. I provide unique content without using large amounts of handwritten text. On most page I use a sentence like "this are the results for (keyword):" and show the data in a list. The unique value is in the presentation and the logical interconnetion of my data.
b)Maybe they are not good enough to make Google believe, that I manually wrote the content. My intention is to improve the quality and the SEO metrics/semantics of the text.
c)Why must it be some kind of trick to post a large amount of duplicate content? My biggest competitor is doing this for years and is ranking better than the source. It is an old and slow site with a huge error rate because they are not able to handle their success. It would be a better user experience to read the same news on my site because it doesn't crash all the time.
d)My plan is to get to 600k-800k pages in the next 2 years with round about 250k-300k pages generated with this duplicate content in different ways. This is the size I need to get equal with my competitors. Actually I manage more than 120k pages, more than 50k indexed.
Why shouldn't I release duplicate content if I can offer a significant amount of additional value by offering links to related articles and related content and maybe rewrite the content?
