Content credits to sister website

Postby goble » Tue Dec 05, 2017 7:49 am


I am developing a new joomla website on (india), I am taking all contents from the sister company which is (Germany) (both sites are in English).

The contents are found in modules, k2 items and joomla articles.

Is there an easy way to tell google to credit for all contents of The reason is that I don't want to be penalized because of plagiarism.

You can go to fiverr and hire writers with similar content content on the old site. If the content is the same two pages you will be penalized

I would rather hire a content writer to create new fresh contents for my company website. Yes, you can credit the sister website and not get penalized. Duplicate content penalty is for having duplicate pages with same content on a website.

I've been banned!

You need to rewrite your content to avoid content duplicates in google

Hi Goble!
When you copy articles, you add source URL article to sister website → submit to Google, you don't will be penalized because of plagiarism because you are building really your BRAND.
Important: provide good information about services for the visitor!
Time on site or visit duration can be an indication of the level of interest or involvement that a visitor has with the website. It is also a good indicator of the success of a campaign or other promotional activity that brings visitors to your website.

I think Yes, You can copy the content from wherever you want to, but you should give due recognition to the lawful author. Either take his permission first or give proper citation w.r.t. sources to avoid any claims of copyright infringement.

You can use rel=Canonical tag to give to proper credit to the main source website.

You can edit the template or you can put a custom module in a module position. As for duplicating content and Google ... snake oil.
