In doing some consolidation and my attempt to get out from under the Panda grip Iíve come across a few interesting items. I have a few pages that have become playgrounds for copied content. The result is I donít rank in the first ten pages for these terms pointing to these pages. Prior to Panda, no problem.
The biggest problem seems to be that Google doesnít recognize me as the original source in one case. This is seen by copying the first ten words of the article in search. But other content within the page when placed into Google search by itself does show me on top (and far fewer copy cats) or what I consider to be their method to distinguish the original author. I realize by no means is this a perfect method, but it does seem to be the best for the time being.
Iím trying to avoid consolidating this page into a larger one that will reach 2700 words. Removing the first paragraph (where the bulk of the copied material rests) is out of the question. I could reword itÖbut then thereís that spun content concern?
