Google on Duplicate Content Filtering and News Attribution Metatags

If you have an interest in how Google addresses duplicate content on the Web, today’s been an interesting day.

Google was granted a patent this morning that describes how Google might identify duplicate or near duplicate web pages and decide which version to show in search results, and which ones to filter out. It’s a process possibly close to what Google has been using for a while.


Identifying the original source of content can be a pretty hard problem to solve on the Web.

What if Google had a smaller search vertical, where they carefully screened and identified all of the web publishers involved, and could convince them to help identify which content is original, and which is copied or duplicated?

I think it does give the old domain priority, but I always check my blogs and sites on copyscape to every month to see if anyone is stealing content. Once in a while someone will pop up. This is very frustarting. I contact the webmater first and I contact google if they don't remove my content.
