Duplicating / Copying WineIntro Content
WineIntro.com has tens of thousands of pages of content and photo on a variety of topics. It is fairly common for people to write us and want to copy our content on a specific topic to their own website. Maybe they're a wine shop and they want to fill up their site with descriptions of all the types of wine. Maybe they're a restaurant and they want their site to have information about pouring and serving wine. I have already written it, so they want to cut and paste my content for free onto their site.
The amount of damage this would cause to both sites is HUGE. Google rewards sites for having unique content. If Google sees duplicate content, they assume that one or both people are thieves. Not only that, but now neither site has unique content so therefore neither site is a high ranking destination. I, as the author, lose the fruits of my years of labor in researching and writing this content. The person who takes my content, who only put the effort of cut-and-paste into their work, has now also damaged their site.
My site already earns the top result for many Google searches, so a "link back" provides no real value to this site. The harm, on the other hand, by the duplicated content, is almost astronomical.
For these reasons, content from the WineIntro site can never be copied or duplicated on any other site.
You are always welcome to link to us, if you want to help share our information with your audience!
